After about 4 weeks i didn't go to any more lectures and used the cd to watch lectures instead...bad idea. I got really behind. The cd is helpful especially because in class he goes kind of fast. Niels Bols is a great prof everyone loves him! However the course itself is a lot of material and the exam was pretty difficult.

Great professor! But the first three quarters of the course is basically review with just a few new things added here and there or more details for certain processes. A lot of memorization required (it is biology after all). But if you read the course notes and listen to the CD you should be fine.

I dislike this course. It's so boring, and there's so much material that you just have to memorize.
