This class was tough.
Overall, It is a very rewarding course. Professor Knickerson is tough in the sense that he only uses tests as the majority of the grade in this course which means that you need to do well on them in order to be successful. However, I don't think I have ever learned more in a course. He is so intelligent and genuinely loves what he teaches. I do recommend this course if you are looking for a career down a medical path.
I learned so much from this course. I have never really retained information from a class just because I feel like I would forget the information when I didn't need it anymore. However, it is different for this class. I never thought that I would be so educated on bacteria.

Advice for students:
Attend lectures!! Really, attending the lectures really do help because he thoroughly explains each of his slides. Everything on the test will be covered in lecture. Also, I would make flashcards with a study group.
