    Not a simple course.

    I passed, after a few attempts. Its a very interesting course, that offers a good understanding of dna, rna, genetics and genetic engineering terminology/concepts. Also, ecology/environment/ Darwinism. The exam questions should be read carefully, maybe re-read a couple of times. Its easy to overlook key words, I found.

    Highly Recommended

    As a medical lab technician I wanted to enhance my knowledge in biology, so I decided to study the Fundamentals of Biology at Global Edulink. The course was extensive and gave me a sound understanding of biology. The instructor was very helpful and answered all of my questions with clear answers. I highly recommend this course to others in the science field.
