Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The Biological Sciences impact almost every aspect of modern life, and interface with a multitude of fields and disciplines including the basic sciences and medicine, social sciences, law, and engineering.
The study of biology thus provides an ideal preparation for a wide range of careers. Biologists have a number of educational paths from which they may choose, depending on their career intentions. A bachelor's degree in biology, biological sciences or a related discipline is sufficient for entry-level careers, but advanced research and teaching careers require a doctoral degree.

Advice for students:
Read the text before class so that you are primed to learn the material more efficiently during the lecture. Before Class, It's very important that you read the text before class; but HOW you read the book makes all the difference. Make a list of all the words in the chapter that you don't understand. It is very likely that these are terms that the teacher will explain in class. If you already have these words written down – you will have a head start on note taking in class. Also, you are more likely to understand the lecture if you have an idea about what terms will be important (even if you don't know what they mean) If a picture is used multiple times in the same chapter - it's probably important. You may want to photocopy the picture and bring it with you to class. Or, maybe find a similar picture online and print it out. Labeling a picture may be easier than trying to draw it in your notes. However, this strategy may not be appropriate – it depends on the class and the instructor. If the instructor has online notes, review sheets, or other information, read them prior to class. Also, make sure to bring them with you to class.
