  1. BIOL239 tutorials are mandatory as they have quizzes and assignments, but its a prereq for BIOL359 which you should definitely take as an elective in the future.

  3. yeah 359 is about the only fun bio course for non-science students, with an awesome prof.
    both 239 and 240 are a pain, don't expect easy 80s

  4. I hated 240 online... the group work isn't bad but the course itself sucks. Avoid it if you can.

  5. I have taken both. Found 239 more interesting, but twice as hard.

  6. Do 240 in class if possible. Prof is THE BEST. Don't ever skip a lecture.. You may miss something amazing... You may even witness a proposal...

  7. I've taken 239 and tutorials are mandatory but I found that it was an easy booster in the overall grade.

    Also I took 240 online and I found that the assignments and group work was ok ... but being unaware of what the final would be like brought my overall grade down...take it in class
