I thought the exams were on par with the difficulty of the material and appreciated the fact that some questions were in essay format as opposed to multiple-choice, thus allowing us students to explain what we knew and how well we knew it.
The simulations we had for assignments were very conducive to understanding the material we were learning, as were the lectures. The instructor for my genetics section was excellent. She was very helpful, very responsive, and very involved in the success of the students.

The information I learned in this class holds a heavy value to it, and I still utilize a lot of the information I learned in it today and will be using it as I continue with my future career.
