    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course and professor because of how she covers the material for the tests. She gives illustrations and examples, she gets students involved by getting volunteers to demonstrate certain things, and she keeps the students involved by asking questions throughout the class period and getting the answer from the students.

    Course highlights:

    This course has many highlights and is very pleasant to take. One highlight was when we were learning about DNA and genes and the professor used shoes to describe and give examples of the different possibilities in DNA and gene scenarios. I learned many new things in this course about things such as cells, the human anatomy, and tissues. It is a very interesting course to take.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    One piece of advice I could give to students considering this course is to not take it lightly. It is not a course you can not study for and expect to pass. You have to study and know the material for the test in order to get a passing grade in it.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was okay, just difficult.

    Course highlights:

    The instructor loved to engage with the students and had fun activities to help learn the information. I learned the fundamentals of biology and how to apply those in practical situations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook, participate in activities to get bonus points, and pay attention. Read over lecture notes as soon as you get out of class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging and really dives into Biology. On a whole, it encompasses Biology 'under the skin', or, all the small parts like cells, metabolism, DNA, reproduction. It is tough, but that is what makes it so good. I find challenging courses to be where I learn the most because I put in real effort. The book used was an ebook from Connect Education. It had LearningSmart, where it would quiz you on the certain chapters; this tool helped me greatly. However, I do prefer a physical book, so I went ahead and bought the actual book. Despite all its good qualities, there are some downsides to the program. I feel that it goes through material fast and you don't really have adequate time to learn the material before the exams. But, it's a college course and they always go fast!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were when the class was able to physically engage in learning. Some of the class would go up and our professor would physically show up how electrons moved about and other processes within cells. I learned much through this class, from atoms and neutrons to metabolism, to genes, and to reproduction.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to read all of your book! You don't always go through all the important parts of the chapter in class because there is never enough time. Thus, always be ready to read your book. What helped me greatly was outlining what I learned so that I could go back to my notes and they would be ordered. Outline your notes, and look up youtube animations of processes. As a visual learner, these helped so much! Make sure to read a little bit every night. It is said that what you read/do at night you will remember more than what you do in the morning/throughout the day. So just do little bits of it every night, and maybe increase the time a week before your exam. With these tips, you'll surely succeed!
