NPB 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

While not an easy professor, he is very fair. If you study the material he presents in lecture and read the textbook daily, you should do well. That said, he is often sloppy with his word choice which can lead to some confusion. All in all, a good professor.

NPB 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B-

Great professor. I have one critique: he needs to learn how to pronounce correctly the things he is teaching. For example, "alveolus" is FOUR syllables, not three. It's frustrating to hear at 8am. That's like saying ath-ah-lete instead of athlete.

NPB101L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

pretty much your success in this class is your ta,i had a really hard ta who gave brutal quizzes and had brutal high standards for lab reports. Bautista writes the final,hardest thing i ever took,i studied soo hard and failed it. He is very sympathetic in office hours and through our complaints he curved our lab section. NPB101L is pretty tough tho

NPB101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Bautista is a good lecturer. His test questions are pretty challenging but if you really study the material you will do well. Don't assume he won't put anything on there, because the randomest things will go. Study everything on the slides in detail.

NPB 10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I like the way he writes out his notes as he is lecturing, the diagrams he draw are really helpful. A very straightforward class, posts all lecture notes and records his lectures as podcasts so I pretty much gave up going to class. Exams are solely based on his lectures so as long as you know what he says in class, you're pretty much set for an A.

Pretty much all the interaction is with the TAs, I never saw the dude the whole quarter. He only writes the lab final. So this class really depends on how your TA is. Mine was god awful, so none of us knew what the expectations were nor were very prepared for the final. I wish Bautista would spend more time with the students.

Very engaging lecturer. He writes his own powerpoint slides. Really clear about concepts you should focus on and draws out diagrams and writes additional comments to clarify his slides. Easy on the eyes too, in my opinion.

Dr. E is the absolute best. The class biology of Addiction) was very interesting and very easy. 3 midterms and a final which was like the same format as the midterm( so basically 4 midterms). Lectures are very clear and podcasts are available online. Totally recommend him!

Best professor at UCD, crystal clear and fun lectures. Very clear on what he expects and he has the best way of lecturing that will help you learn. Funny and active. Test questions are very hard and require critical thinking but you will do well if you study a bit every day. BEST CLASS I HAVE HAD SO FAR. Listen to podcast after lecture to solidify.

NPB 010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The BEST lecturer I've had at Davis so far. He makes complex material interesting and explains it very clearly. While you should go to class, he podcasts and posts his notes online so attending is not necessary (I never went to class). Tests are straightforward but the material is extensive so don't procrastinate on studying. Easy A
