Print out his notes and go to class to understand the material. It is a lot of information and takes a lot of studying! If you read over your notes after every class you will be fine. It was one of my favorite classes.

Dr. Szalai is an EXCELLENT teacher. Immuno itself is hard but it's the best class I have taken at USC. He gives you a pdf with all the notes for the class at the beginning of the year but you still need to go to class to have a good understanding of the material. Tests are tough but if you really work hard you'll do okay. LOVED this class.

Very hard class. Do not take this class, unless you have to, SERIOUSly.Dr. Szalai is a very nice guy, just not that great @ explaining.LISTEN, the books are helpful. 1st exam i think the average may have been 20 or 30, SERIOUSLY. I managed to pull a B+ in the class i was very anxious studying and before every exam i would get sick, its that HARD!!!

Gabor is an excellent teacher. Sure he has an accent, but he is quite clear. His only hindrance might be an occasional odd-placed word. The class (Immunology) is extremely hard though, and there is not a sufficient textbook. He gives out a great set of his notes though, and if you spend serious time studying them you should be able to pass.

This is not an easy class, so expect to study a lot. No busy work bs, class isn't mandatory because when you miss a day you get very behind. Don't buy the book. Great teacher and very helpful.

This is the most difficult class I have ever taken. Start studying from the very beginning and don't get behind. Don't even bother with the textbooks.

What a great class! Don't expect it to be easy, you cant just memorize to get by- you have to learn the material and apply it. His accent is difficult at first. Extremely helpful- go to his office if youre having trouble! Posts handwritten lecture notes online, I never needed the book. Tough but extremely interesting- one of my favorite classes!
