    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was not only interesting, but extremely fun to take! Dr. Dunkin has been the best professor I've had at UCSC, as she is very interactive and it is clear that she is passionate about what she teaches. The work load is not too heavy and the homework and quizzes were fairly simple. The midterm and final were fairly difficult, but sufficient studying materials are given to help you succeed. The course material was interesting and fun, not monotonous and boring like some classes can be. Dr. Dunkin also talks a lot about her own research and is very helpful if you go to her office hours, so if you are interesting in pursuing research I recommend going to her and discussing it with her if you have this class!

    Course highlights:

    This class teaches a lot about animal development and physiology, but what I didn't know before enrolling in this class is that it also has a large section about plants (a little less than half of the class). I learned a lot of terms and information about plants that I never knew before, as well as a lot about plant reproduction. As for animals, I learned a lot about the different organ systems within animals (kidneys, heart, digestive system, nervous system, etc) as well as the development of the embryo and fetus during human development.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class I recommend going to class and genuinely paying attention. Dr. Dunkin doesn't simply test you on the material taught in the course, but she expects you to be knowledged enough on the subjects to be able to consider scenarios in which something might be affected and then state what the outcome of that might be (ex: if a certain maternal gene is damaged, what might happen to the developing fetus?). Questions like this are not answered in the class, so it is up to you to understand the material enough to be able to answer them yourself. I recommend studying the slides and taking good notes, because you will need them to study for the exams.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dunkin's teaching is not fluid, easily comprehensible, and effective. She tries but misses the mark.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. The plant section was nice but I am biased because I am a plant sciences major.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY often. Make study guides, review concepts ask questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Dunkin is probably one of my favorite professors I've had at UCSC. She really cares about her students, and attending office hours really helps

    Course highlights:

    Got an A but had to work for it. She wants you to understand not just memorize

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your best not to miss class because the graphs she teaches will be on your exams. Try to word things on tests the same as she taught them or you'll lose points
