    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's a fantastic teacher who gives out tons of points for doing what is expected. All of the homework can be found online and the tests are exactly the same as what she gives out on the homework.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the basics of biology. The tests are simple (I finish in 15 mins or less), the labs aren't bad.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure that you understand the material that she's giving you, especially for the lab practicals. Those are the hardest part of the class.
