    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course really prepares you for what it is going to be like in not only grad school but also for the rest of your college courses that are challenging. This curse really teaches you that your high school study habits are not going to fly in college.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Hixon explains things the best that he can't and if you can't understand the material, he is more than willing to stay after class and re-explain it to you. I learned so much from this class and it really prepared me for my life in the medical field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read each chapter before class and re-read the chapters afterword. This class needs to be studied for over the entire semester because there is so much information.
