This class was tough.
Dr. Masuoka is very passionate about his students and his job. He knows what he is talking about and explains things well. Although you have to study from the book and take pretty good notes in his class to do well on the exam.
I gained a thorough understanding of many organisms and diseases and learned how they grow and survive in and out of the body. The lab portion of this class is amazing and so much fun. You get to grow and culture your own diseases and have to figure out an "unknown" disease.

Advice for students:
Use the book and take good notes! If you start studying as he gives you the information you will be fine. But if you wait until last minute to cram it will haunt you. This course offers a lot of information in a relatively short amount of time.
