    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a traditional lecture styled class, but Dr. Gross does well with explaining the concepts. His notes that he posts on Blackboard are compact but helpful because you'll see some of it in exams.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Gross really wants his students to learn and understand the course. He will also ask for questions--he encourages them immensely. His notes made studying a little easier. They took a load off a bit so that you wouldn't have to plow through every inch of the textbook unnecessarily. I also think this course is extremely helpful because once you learn the concepts, you're in a great place when studying for and actually taking the MCAT (at least for the biology section). I was very grateful to take this class before the exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I rated the class as tough because there's quite a bit of material to study for before each exam, and it may overwhelm you from time to time. But pay close attention during lectures. That's the first step. If you're the type to ask questions, ask questions, and if you're not, try to ask at least one or two the entire semester. He begs for them. Also try to bring his notes from Blackboard to class so that you can write your personal notes on the same pages as his. Try not to wait last minute (I had trouble doing that sometimes). Study a little material after every/every other class so that you're not cramming the night before. A great thing to do a couple of days before an exam is looking over old exams. Find people who have exams! The questions are not guaranteed to be on the exams, but they're a great way to test yourself to see where you're solid and where you still need help. Manage your time well. It took some effort, but I managed to get an A so you can too.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to Biology major students because, although I finished the course with a C, I learned a plethora of information from nerves and muscles to Blood-Brain barrier and hippocampus. I can recite several facts that I learned in the class. Although it is extremely strenuous and difficult initially, you become accustomed to the way the professor runs the course. I definitely recommend reading the book as often as possible. Also, make sure to practice many of the older tests to get a sense of taking his new tests. Rumor has it that he never duplicates a test; He creates a new version every semester. So, it's impossible to memorize answers; however, if you know the material inside and out, there's no way you won't make an A!

    Course highlights:

    Highlights would include the stories that the professor tells to supplement your learning. I also recall many of the things he taught because you COULD NOT pass the course without learning something. In some courses I've made As in, I couldn't tell you 5 things that I remember about it. However, in this class, you walk away knowing more than when you stepped in.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read before class - he wastes absolutely NO time going over things. The only way you'll get your questions answered is if you ask a question pertaining to the readings you read previously. Don't ask obvious questions - he will call you out. Don't sleep in his class - he will call you out. Bring food to stay awake - he has a monotone voice. Study fervently or study in groups. Go to his office and make your presence known! He will spare you a failing grade if he sees that you're trying.
