Bimm 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely selfish. Does not take into count that a majority of her students if all are taking other bio classes and not just hers. Literally gave a midterm the Fri. before finals week and had the 15+ research paper due that following Mon. She lies and says you have only 1 research paper. Try 3(the other two exclude materials/abstract).

BIMM121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I have to admit, this was the BEST bio course I ever took at UCSD. Great professor and the material was super interesting. It definitely was not easy, but if you put in the time and effort to understand the concepts, you will get an A like I did. Attend her review sessions and go to lecture (a must!). I highly recommend this course with Chilukuri!

BIMM121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of the best professor I've ever met in UCSD! She takes her own time holding several review sections before the midterms, and she want the student to learn. She's always in lab, helping students, and she graded midterms herself. Extremely nice personality, very kind. Exams not easy, you have to work hard to get good grade. But very recommended!

BIBC120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Easy A - If you study. Lecture heavy, use book for diagrams and definitions. I got a B+, but I could've studied a little more.

This class is really interesting! Everything that is thought relates to everyday life and the exams ARE NOT tricky. Very straight forward as long as you go to class and literally write down everything she says. If you do that, you got yourself an A.

bibc120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The nutrition class is super hard! The questions are super tricky and the exams are like 20 pages long. You think the material is easy at first then BAM the test are super hard! Makes metabolic seem like recess..

BIBC120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Yes, this class has a lot of materials to memorize but they are straight-forward. Yes, the exams are long but all you have to do is regurgitate the stuff explained in class. Nothing tricky; nothing that makes you go ?WTF is she asking?? If you cannot memorize and regurgitate simple information, you should've dropped out of the biology major.

I think Prof. Chilukuri is a great professor, she explains everything very well just make sure you write down everything she says. Also, her exams are application based so you have to really understand the material before exams.

BIBC120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She rambles on forever about the topics in discussion. I find reading the book more interesting than listening to her in lecture. For her test you basically have to memorize everything she says and repeat this verbatim on the tests. If you miss one small detail you'll get marked down. Take someone else.

BIBC120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Contrary to popular belief, this class was not an easy "A" at all. Don't buy the book; focus on the lectures at hand.
