    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing and fun for me. I am a lover of biology and think that this class is an amazing way to introduce the fundamentals of Biology.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was learning about protein synthesis and how the individual parts of the cells work so hard to create something so useful and important to the body yet so small.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would really suggest to listen and take great notes in class and definitely don't be afraid to ask questions. Also use the book. It is very useful and explains the material in a more detailed manner, that way you could write your own study notes using the book and the notes taken in class to have a better understanding.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If this class is required for your major, I would recommend Dr. Balish and Dr. Russell. The professors really make this course, and even though the material is challenging they are helpful and friendly in office hours and will talk you through things that you don't understand. I would not recommend this course for Miami plan, as it is very challenging.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the interactions between professors. They are a really funny group and it makes learning hard material easier. This course provides a strong base for future biology courses and prepares you for upper level classes. We had three majors sections of the class, a part about cells/microbiology, a plant section, and a physiology section. These have helped me in my current biology classes as well as kinesiology courses.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My greatest advice would be to study everyday. Even if the material makes sense in class, go back and read your notes and consider rewriting them. Seek help early. If talking to professors intimidates you. speak to other students, see a tutor, or attend the supplemental instruction session. If you keep on top of the material, it will be less overwhelming, but regardless you will need to put in a lot of work in this class to get an A. To get an A in this class I rewrote my notes after each lecture (which usually took around 2 hours per lecture), attended supplemental instruction sessions, and spent around 20 hours studying for each exam.
