    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Many of you will have to take this course in order to take the MCAT, PCAT, or DAT or you are a biology major. If you are not pursuing medical, pharmacy, or dental school or not a science major I would not recommend the course since it may not be a valuable use of your time. If you are interested in environment, genetics, and natural selection this is a great introduction course.

    Course highlights:

    The content is dense and you will cover a lot of topics. Its difficult to pick one but the genetic section you cover is awesome. You will go into greater depths than just your basic genetic crosses. Basic math will be used to predict outcomes without crossing the parents which will come in handy when you begin crossing multiple traits. You will see how many things like gender or allele type (ex. codominant) play out in potential offspring. My personal favorite was getting a visual for how some diseases present themselves or get passed down. If genetics is something you are interested in this is a great introduction course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest piece of advice I can offer is do not be discourages by how dense the material is. I know it seems like obvious advice but pay attention in class and I can't stress this enough but use the old exams they provide you with as a study guide. The way I studied for the exams was by using past exams and answering the questions. This allows you to break down the powerpoint's, which are packed with information, and see what the most important topics are. By doing so you become familiar with the style of tests the professor uses and can expand upon the general topics at hand.
