How hard is genetics? Once I'm finish taking my A&P classes (which will be in Spring '17) I wanted to take Genetics. Is it really hard? I'll have to take it eventually, so I might as well get it out of the way soon.

Genetics is like any other science...if you like it and you easily "get it" you'll do great. If you struggle with sciences well then you may end up hating it!

I loved my genetics class. It was interesting and challenging. It also was the first time statistics made any sense to me :up: Good luck!

Did you like the section on genetics in your General Biology class? It's just a much more in-depth version of that material.

I did find it interesting! It wasn't my favorite though, lol so idk. It's either that or microbiology, which I may go for. I'm really interested in cell biology.
