    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because you learn many different things not only about properties of life and cells as you do in every other biology class, but you learn details about these things that you normally wouldn't. You learn exactly how each component of the cell works and not in the cheesy way that you did in high school about it being a warehouse. Dr. Sammons has an awesome way of explaining things and that was one reason I took so much away from his class. I really was able to grasp concepts that would typically be difficult.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many different things in this course, such as all of the properties of life and what makes something "living." I also learned detailed information about the properties of water and what makes water so unique. I learned how to identify all of the phases of a cell cycle through a microscope. I also learned about the 4 macromolecules that are highly required for living things. We learned and watched super cool videos about DNA replication. I don't think I have ever understood the way DNA is copied more than I do now that I have taken this course. Dr. Sammons did an amazing job explaining extremely hard topics in a simpler way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Whereas in some classes powerpoints are extremely helpful when it comes to test, that's not the case here. I would advise you to just LISTEN in class, because the way Dr. Sammons speaks is easy to remember big concepts. Do not only know the information, but know how to apply the information, because at least 80% of his test will be applying information that you should already know. Don't be discouraged when you see the tests, because a lot of times when you really think about it, you know the answers and how to apply it, because he taught the material so well. Also, use the supplement instructor, because he provided me with lots of extra information that helped me grasp these concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the professor uses excellent teaching methods. Dr. Stumpf takes personal interest in the student's learning. He encourages students to succeed as well.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned the scientific method, how to work a microscope, cell division, eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, the process of dna synthesis, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, it helps a whole lot to understand the subject. Material biology is a great study tool.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You really have to understand basic biology before you get thrown into Bio 1201

    Course highlights:

    Lots of hands on work in lab. PowerPoints are always available, and textbook really helps.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the SI Sessions, study the book, take lots of notes.
