BIO 1033 - Drugs and Society
I thought this would be the biggest blow off class in the world. Boy was I wrong. Not too bad though. An Engineering major in this class might be a bit hard because of all the terminology.
Pros: Tests come straight from the notes. Dont buy the book. You really don't have to go to class except the day before the test when she spills all the answers that are gonna be on the test. But it still is pretty difficult to memorize like 20 pages of notes for a test.
Cons: She doesn't really teach anything, she just reads the notes that are already online.

I thought this was a blow off class, but it wasn't. Studying the notes the night before wont help in this class. Although she covers everything in class that is on the test so you don't even really need the book. Class can get a little boring sometimes, but you have to go if you want to get an A or B.

Pros: She cancels class sometimes (which could also be a con)

Very easy A

Notes are online

Cons: Boring lectures
Don't buy the book. I haven't opened it once. She uses iClickers sometimes to take attendance and if you get the question correct (it's from that day's notes) you get bonus points on your final grade. She only has 3 exams and drops the one with the lowest score.
