    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course, itself, is useful and I would highly recommend that you take it as soon as you can, but understanding Dr. Ratna yaks is very difficult. I know that he tries to speak coherently, but their is still a language barrier between the professor and the student.

    Course highlights:

    Participating in activities that a professor organizes in class is very crucial. Some of the questions on the quiz can be about what you did during one of the labs. It also shows the professor that you are putting forth effort to better your grade. If you go to them saying that you do not understand something in the class, they will counter with the fact that you have not been participating in the activities and that is why you don't understand.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look over the material before you begin the lab and then go over it again after the lab is completed. Come up with ways to help you remember what you have learned too.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for any science majors. This course is detailed and interesting. It is almost a "pre- A&P" course. I took anatomy and physiology before this course so it was very easy. If you have not taken A&P, I would recommend taking this course first, because A&P is much more specific and harder to study.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all of the home names of the appendicular and axial skeleton. I learned about the evolution of smaller animals and insects and how their organ systems vary and or are similar to human organ systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is no such thing as over studying! You will need to know a lot of details. Do not just read over the material, but make connections. You will find yourself amazed on how your body functions.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. McFerrin is a great professor. The course is required so why not take it with the best? There is a lot of reading, but do not be frightened. The professor is there to help you along the way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course include the content. You learn about the muscular system, skeletal system, reproductive system, respiratory system, the circulatory system, and the basic biological principles and concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study daily. Don't get behind with the course work.
