    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great way to re-learn past material from high school, but in a much detail. I thought it was fairly interesting because the course in structured in a way that it highlights important material that will most likely be reviewed again in higher leveled courses.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned great deal of cell biology, cellular respiration, DNA, protein synthesis, and photosynthesis. Some of these topics we reviewed again in my other classes such as Chemistry and Anatomy and Physiology 1 course. I am thankful that I took Bios 100 beforehand because I wasn't completely new to the material in Chemistry and or Anatomy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lectures because Dr. Malchow does not read off the slides. He explains the topics in several ways which makes it useful for majority of students. For example, he would do a lot of in-class demonstrations so that we could get a visual understanding of the concepts.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Muller is an amazing teacher. He cares that you understand the information, not just are able to regurgitate it on an exam. He gives chances to make up points on exams.

    Course highlights:

    The information highlighted in this course includes introduction to cell structure and replication, concepts of chemical equilibrium, light anatomy and physiology, to name a few.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read the text if the class concepts aren't sticking with you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, because although the course requires a lot for a 100 level course, Professor Malchow cares about students. At the beginning of class he states that he wants to give out 250 (the class size) A's only if the students are willing to earn them. He gives out helpful study guides for each exam, students have 3 attempts to get the correct answer on homework assignments, and gives extra credit points through a daily i-clicker question presented during lecture. Overall, I will say that introductory biology is not an easy A, students have to study, and put effort into the class. However, it is not impossible to get an A.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to study more effectively for the course, first and foremost. I also learned the cell anatomy of animal and plant cell, which is important for all biology classes. I also learned about how cells work, homeostasis, and more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. Go to office hours if it fits with your schedule and you have the time to. Use the textbook, your lectures notes, the presentation slides, and outside source such as YouTube to receive the information in more than one way. Practice labeling parts of cells and other types of anatomies that will be presented in class. Students will get what they put in to this course/
