This class was tough.
Dr. Marshall is an amazing teacher and does all she can to help you be successful in this course.
The highlight of this course is definitely the research project required. Students are matched with a faculty member, and together you will choose a topic to do research and carry out experiments throughout the semester. This project can be very fun and insightful, but it will definitely require a lot of work outside of the classroom. My project was on macro-invertebrates, and I learned more than I every thought I would.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to learn a lot of information. Also, be prepared to put a large amount of time and effort in to this class. I was able to make an A in the class, but I easily put 15+ hours each week in to studying and my project.
