Nutr 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Straight forward class. The textbook is only needed for the case studies that are due each month. Everything else is in the lectures. the class is departmentalized so he doesnt make the tests or grade anything. GO TO CLASS!! Its pretty much impossible to not get an A.

NUTR 223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Santo is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He lectures very well, but I got really confused because I didn't have a lot of prior knowledge. It was my second nutrition course and it was expected of you to know a lot. I still ended up with a B but it was difficult.

NUTR121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is enthusiastic. Easy course. HOWEVER, besides lecturing, he does nothing else. Very irresponsive online and doesn't grand anything himself. I maintained at a high A until he changed the exam date without any official notice on webcampus while study sessions are still going on. Lectures are closed two days before final, be mindful of this course

NUTR 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

When I read the comments earlier I was really surprised. Professor Santo is very enthusiastic but the class was not easy, at least not to get an A. I had to read every page in the textbook. He doesn't offer any help for the test or studying, and he doesn't even know what is on the test as the tests and slides are written for him.

Not an easy class. Exams were very difficult and did not relate to lectures. Also, a lot of assignments in this class. I actually received better exam scores when I quit attending the lectures!

NUTR 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Do not take this class looking for an easy science credit! The entire curriculum for UNLV with Nutrition is the same for every teacher. In other words, every teacher has the same slides and exams. It is extremely difficult to pass the exams even with hours of studying. Many students dropped out of the class from failing. I do not recommend.

NUTR121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Awesome professor. He has a tendency to go off on lengthy tangents, but he knows how to keep things interesting. Nutrition as a science is not one of my passions, but he inspired me to keep a closer eye on how I take care of myself. The only con is that he will make you buy a very expensive textbook (I paid $180), so save up!

He is so passionate about nutrition. He gets off track sometimes and will talk about something for a really long time, but it's always interesting. He has typed out his own sort of textbook, so don't buy the book, just use what he gives you. Also he is hilarious. Take his class if you can!

This class was super easy! He gives you questions and answers for the exams and honestly there really is no need to miss class!! That's the main reason why he does this. There are three Dietary Analysis, one 10% assigment, write a paper or participate in a study, and of course the final. Easy class and amazing teacher!

This is a pretty fun class. Wasn't interested going into it, but I love it now! Tests are straight-forward. Attendance is not mandatory, but if you show up, you definitely learn more (in regards to tests). HIGHLY RECOMMEND
