Semester is Oooover!
So I finished finals on Wednesday and have spent the past couple of days just eating, sleeping and again eating. Now that classes are over I guess I can take about the amaaaaazing classes I took in the fall.
NST 110: This class is pretty interesting and amazing, but I maybe bias since I'm a moltox major. The concepts are not that hard to understand and success is based off how much detail you can memorize for the exams. This class is pretty cool since you learn the biochemical reasoning of all the toxins you learn in NST 11.
LGBT 145: This class was just something I've never experienced ever at Cal. I've only taken a few humanities class while at Cal, but this one takes the cake as the most interesting, thought provoking and hilarious class. Jac Asher is a pretty entertaining professor who will never let there be a dull moment in her lectures. Imagine a class that is a cross between medieval sexologists, Freud/Foucault philosophy and gay sex. That is basically the class in a nutshell.
IB 148: This class was about animal physiology. It was a great class in that it stressed more of understanding concepts rather than just memorizing body parts. The down side of this, however, is that lectures are often covered in equations and graphs. Highly recommend if you want to go to grad school since we have to do a symposium and the class has a pretty intense focus on research even though most of the class is pre-vet.
IB 137: This class was taught by Hayes and wow was he inspirational. He cracked jokes in lecture and brought plenty of demos to class, which was really nice of him. Overall the material was interesting, but only downfall is he is an old fashion chalk board user which can get a little annoying when you are drawing all these arrows and axis for hormones. Pretty easy to get lost in lecture with all the material even though concepts aren't that difficult to understand. Watch out for his exams though because he doesn't play around. His exams really do test your understanding of concepts and not just memorization and often has many questions that deal with experimental design.
