    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to others because the material is taught in an interesting way by a professor who is openly there whenever you have a question to ask. Also, the recitation and lab that comes along with the class helps build your knowledge on the material taught in class and helps you apply the information to the real world.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn different topics over science but this course also helped me figure out studying tips, how to make study groups with peers, and to stay organized with my planning. In a course like this, exams cover a range of chapters so planning ahead on how to approach your studying for that exam is important. This course helped show me that pre-reading before class and reviewing the notes from lecture the day of helps further your understanding and help you learn the material for the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to those who want to take a course like this is to not procrastinate and stay on-time with the readings and lectures. Also, although attendance is not for a grade, it is important to not skip lecture because material is covered in lecture that can be better explained by the professor. Along with that, the professor will make sure to cover in class what you will need to know for the exam, so missing out on what information was covered in class only causes you to be more behind in your studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Marrs is extremely easy to follow in lectures. She cares a lot about biology, but she also cares a lot about your and your future.

    Course highlights:

    Fridays were the best in this class, she always had fun Fridays which made it better to be there. I learned more about how plants and animals functioned in different environments and what was happening on a larger scale in biology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely do not skip recitation, it will help you in the long run! Do the ATP extra credit, its super easy! Make sure to study atleast a week before every test, it will help you out greatly!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires strenuous study in order to succeed. I recommend attending study exam jams as they review a test packet that will have the exact same answers as the actual test. Be the first to sign up for the jams because it is limited to the amount of seats in the class. Also, attending lectures regularly gives you bonus points for clicker system participation.

    Course highlights:

    This course is similar to high school level biology, but with college level depth. I learned the surface level of the Krebs cycle in high school, but K101 goes in depth as it explains the chemistry properties and their relation to the Krebs cycle. Opportunities are plentiful to pass the course. Clicker system participation points, in class quizzes that you can use your notes on, and Pearson online learning modules with reliable study tools.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to attend all lectures, take notes, consult Dr.Marrs, she is very reasonable. I could not afford my book and missed the two weeks online homework, I expressed this to her, and she GAVE me a book, free of charge, and reopened my homework.
