    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the course because it is a requirement for biology majors but also an essential tool in the building of the foundation for your career in biology on a college campus.

    Course highlights:

    In short, from personal experience, the highlight of this course was the professor, Dr. Kundu. Dr. Kundu brought enthusiasm and life to the course. He was always there to offer advice on the course and to reiterate materials during office hours, class time and even in passing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over study notes as he advises, make time to meet with professor as frequently as possible or as needed, make study groups and commit to success.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kines is great! She answers all questions very thoroughly, and genuinely wants to see her students succeed. She goes out of her way to see people get good grades.

    Course highlights:

    Dissection of a fetal pig, and learning about different cells.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the homework, don't take it too lightly. The practical parts of exams can be brutal.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is for Biology majors. So I of course recommend that you take this course if you are a Biology major. The professor I have is amazing. When in Biology lecture I don't quite understand all that my teacher has been teaching, she always clears it up. It also helps that the course is set up so as to coincide with the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course had to be when we dissected a fetal pig. I got a better insight of what I will be doing later on in my career as a forensic pathologist. I learned that the fetal pig though very similar in structure to humans is actually completely different. One of the major differences is that humans are bipedal and pigs are quadrupeds, so all the terms that describe location of an organ are switched.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, I would highly recommend brushing up on the previous Biology's information seeing as this course is a direct continuation of the previous semester's class. I would also recommend that you don't take the class for granted. Although it is only a one day a week class, completing homework and reviewing the labs are extremely important to passing the quizzes and even understanding the lectures. You are only going to get out of the class what you put into it. So do your best, and if your best isn't good enough utilize your professors and the resource center to help you do better than your best.
