    Just download the slides and take notes on them during the lecture. Stay on top of her Study Guide questions she posts and listen to the lectures before the tests again, helped me remember. Textbook is not needed at all. Just STUDY THE SLIDES, they are exactly what is on the test. That and the study guide questions. ...Continue reading

    You all must take him. I learned so much from him. You can tell he is enthusiastic about the subject. Ask him anything about the brain. He is a genius in neurobio. He might be a little monotone though but overall a chill guy ...Continue reading

    This guy is also! Made the subject so interesting. He knows his stuff and you can tell he is really into biology. Ask him anything on neurobio, he can tell you. Take him if you can. He is a little monotone though but overall he is illest. ...Continue reading

    This class was the most disorganized online course I have ever taken. Material in book and lecture slides were completely different from test question and the majority would get low Cs or Ds on the tests. She gave extra credit and said she would curve but then said everyone had an 80% and she wouldn't curve (obviously incorrect info about test %). Avoid her if you can. You can tell she understands the subject well, but as for getting it across to her students, terrible. Easy to get in contact with, but doesn't usually answer your questions well with her response. The lab is excellent and most of the T.A.'s are great, unfortunately it isn't a combined grade. ...Continue reading

    Took her online class. Prof was unresponsive, inconsistent, had an unclear syllabus, and her quizzestests often marked right answers wrong. Her lectures are old and boring, like 2010 old. No curve, but she gives a few points of extra credit (what a joke). Would definitely not recommend. ...Continue reading

    She tries to go over three chapters in one class period. Use her powerpoints as a guide, but don't rely on them for her tests. You're better off just reading the textbook than going to class. Study the objectives in the book. The online quizzes were easy. Don't stress out too much because there's a huge curve at the end. She is hard to reach, her tests are difficult, poorly worded and written, and would have been impossible if not for a study group. She is obviously very knowledgeable, but is terrible at teaching/lecturing in a lower-division setting. Good luck in her class & go in with friends! ...Continue reading

    Lipson can be awkward at times but he's funny, really nice, and super smart. His classes are not mandatory. Lectures are recorded puts them online. Book isn't very necessary. He curves a lot if the test average is low. Study the learning objectives that he gives for each chapter-- the tests are mainly based on those and what he says in lecture. ...Continue reading
