    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was challenging, but I learned a fair amount. It is absolutely essential to attend class and review sessions, as Randy almost always customizes test questions and review to what he specifies in class. Weekly quizzes were usually on Fridays, and based on that week's material. The quizzes were difficult but prepared me for exams well.

    Course highlights:

    The class focused mainly on cell regulation and cell biology, with very little focus on macroscopic biology like evolution or ecology. Randy has a particular interest in cancer biology, so we studied a fair amount about regulation of cancer and the cell.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to always go to class, review sessions, and ask to set up a meeting with Randy if necessary. Make sure if you do not understand during lecture, raise your hand and ask the question and he will try to help you. He always asks students for their name in class, and tries to make the 400 person lecture hall seem smaller.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't really recommend it because he tends to stutter a lot during lectures and likes to put things on tests that he went over for 2 seconds and forgets to go back to.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were that there was SI sessions to attend to help understand the material better. I learned that you have to know the material inside and out to really do well on exams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get all the help you can and KNOW YOUR MATERIAL. Even if you barely went over it, it will still most likely be on an exam.
