    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend taking this course with this teacher because of how complicated he makes the class. His grading is terrible too. Labs with him are great though!

    I honestly did not learn anything.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read over your notes every night and have study sessions with classmates.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was one of the hardest classes I've ever taken. I do not remember much from the course. I took it freshman year when I was not sure how to study yet.

    Course highlights:

    This class goes over mostly the general biology such as the breakdown of organisms and cells.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. This class was extremely difficult and requires thorough studying. I would recommend reading the material over and going through the PowerPoints before and after classes.
