This class was tough.
It's not that I wouldn't recommend it because mostly everyone taking this course has too, but the professors that teach this course could do better at it. There are three professors that teach this course; McAllister, Phillips, and Leight. Depending on who you have, you will either have Phillips or Leight for the brunt of the course. Phillips isn't the best public speaker and at times it's hard to understand what he is trying to say. He also speeds through the slides with little to no elaboration. The other professor, I can't say much about them since I did not have Leight and McAllister only taught for one chapter.
I learned that when everyone is stressed and all the struggle bus

Advice for students:
Again, you probably have to take this course. My recommendations would be to get a tutor, go to SI meetings, and ask smart students for help. You can go to the professors, but they don't have a lot of time for their office hours since they are all involved in research. They also speak to you as if you have a doctorate in Biology and sometimes it's a bit too much to grasp. Read the book, because it's more helpful than the professors, go to lecture because there are actually attendance points. EVERY POINT MATTERS IN THIS CLASS. Most importantly, study your butt off, but don't worry if you didn't do too well on the exam. The class average is low which is horrifying and both calming.
