Class recommendations?

This fall will be my final semester at NU, and I've put off taking my natural world core class. I'm looking for something that wont be overly challenging, as quite frankly I'm at the end and want to be semi-lazy. I'm looking at:
BIOL 1147 - The Human Organism with Prof Yashon
PHYS 1121 - Intro to Science with an unknown prof

Has anyone taken these? How were they? Do you have any other recommendations for an easy(ish) natural world class?

Also, has anyone taken Advertising and Promotional Culture with Nakayama or any other prof? I'm trying to decide between it and Producing for the Entertainment Industry.

Thanks guys!

I took a class (Biology and Society, 1143 I believe) with Yashon last year and hated it. Ronnee herself was very nice, helpful, intelligent, fair, etc. but she tends to over-simplify things so much so that the class itself becomes easy to the point of tedium. I mean, we watched half a season's worth of CSI as part of the curriculum... It was my experience that if you're someone who doesn't like science then she makes it really easy for you to understand the principles, but if you're expecting to to any deeper than that you'll be sorely disappointed.

It's just to meet my requirement, so easy and tedious (and full of CSI!) sounds perfect. An extra A wouldn't hurt my GPA for grad school too.

Thanks though! As long as the prof is awesome, I'll be good.

i'd highly recommend any environmental science class with jennifer cole. that last class sounds interesting, it's just suuuper broad... i wonder what it will actually focus on.
