    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for those interested in bio majors, you learn a lot of introductory concepts that are helpful for future courses.

    Course highlights:

    There is webcast which is good to review the class concepts, extra-credit quizzes in section, and MSI learning opportunities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask yourself what is the main concepts Rexach is trying to teach/convey from his presentation slides.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    John is a really amazing instructor and an awesome guy. He has always been really accommodating to my disability and really forgiving to me. I hope that I can take another class of his some day.

    Course highlights:

    John comes up with some funny analogies that really make the material much easier to remember. Promotors on the DNA are like airports, telling where RNA polymerase to come in and which direction to go in.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read and reread and rerereread the lecture notes and you will be fine. Talk to yourself outloud like a bloody idiot, and make sure you can draw everything.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Lee is one of the best professors I had at UCSC. He's a great professor and teaches well even though the material itself can be quite challenging.

    Course highlights:

    You definitely may enjoy this class is you're a bio major as I found the material quite interesting. Ask questions! He really does like it when you do that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to stay on top of the readings and review the powerpoints many times.
