    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures are well-structured and get more interesting as the quarter passes. The professor has great visualizations and intriguing videos that he will share during class. The exams are very straight forward and easy if you study the lectures and attend every class. The professor even throws in bonus questions on the exam that will come straight from the lectures or from what the professor said during class. There is no textbook for this class!

    Course highlights:

    The lectures are very well organized. Each lecture starts off with a slide that lists concepts and questions that the rest of the slides and the professor will answer. As long as you know those concepts and questions, you will do great in the class. There is no textbook for this class! The lecture slides are colorful and contain many visualizations, which makes the class very intriguing. The professor throws in bonus questions on the exam that will come straight from the lectures or from what the professor said during class. The professor shares interesting stories about some of his journeys as a paleobiologist, which are usually the bonus questions on the exam, so paying attention in class is a must to get an A. Some questions I had going into this class were how many species actually existed in the past, how do scientists both collect and analyze fossils, and what is the biological species concept. All of these questions were answered in this class. We learned about how fossils are formed and potentially altered. We learned about various variations within species in the past by looking at various fossils. We learned about allopatric verses sympatric speciation and much more. The exams are based on lectures and what the professor says during class, so it is crucial that you do not miss class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you will need to attend every class because there are things the professor will mention that will not be in the lecture. Make sure to take thorough notes during class and, if need be, record the lectures so you can go back and listen to anything you missed. Study the lectures and try to answer all the questions that are in the beginning of each lecture. Make a study guide of the questions that are in the beginning of each lecture because the exam will be on these questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The campus allows many people to be successful in a rigorous yet comfortable environment. The academics test a student to their full ability and offer many resources in order to ensure that. The community supports the campus life and enjoys finding ways to help in any way they can.

    Course highlights:

    UC Davis is a pretty big school with a lot of nature and diversity. There are people from all over the world. The academics is really good. But it's really the professor who makes or breaks the class. The dorms are okay. There are 3 living areas and student apartments. The farthest one is Cuarto. The dining commons are okay. The food is usually pretty good.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When I graduated from high school and was starting to apply for college I never would of thought that UC Davis would be the school I would end up attending. But when I was accepted and made the decision to go there for school.
