    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of memorization and there are not a lot of points offered.

    Course highlights:

    I did not learn much honestly. I just tried to memorize as much information for the tests.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to self teach. You should also review the summary notes very thoroughly.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course for me covered materials that I'd learned over the course of my middle and high school career in more depth, as well as new materials. The class was made that much better by the presence of our enthusiastic professor who brought life to the class and the topic as well as his people skills and willingness to help others. I can remember knocking on his office door many days, sometimes even outside of office hours and he was always eager to help.

    Course highlights:

    This course highlighted and laid the foundation for college Biology for me. What I have found over the course of my not so long college experience, is that college is about building. Each class session and each course build on each other ultimately leading to the foundation of your career by graduation. Knowing that, I do believe this course successfully did so.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely recommend this course and especially this professor, but once enrolled in the course be sure to check in with the professor, as well as, go over all the materials covered in class, make study groups with set study session, review study notes given in class and do assigned homework(s).

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course not only because I love biology, but because I think that it really helped me to understand more advanced biology when the time came to it. Dr. Kundu really made this class memorable and understandable.

    Course highlights:

    This is a crash course of Biology in itself. You learn all the major aspects of biology from macromolecules, to cell respiration, to action potential. This class is a great way to integrate science majors into their first year of bio because it is basic information to understand the study of life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have taken AP Biology in high school, this class is basically everything that you learned. Dr. Kundu is an amazing professor who really gets to know his students. He takes his time teaching and making sure you understand the material without dragging the class out. He uses great methods to help study for tests and is very comprehensive and patient with students.
