Great course, highly recommended. He does have his own way of teaching which forces you to attend class but if you listen carefully and take good notes, you are fine! Study off the lecture slides and ask him for help after class. He posts old tests which are very helpful.

If you are taking this course just for credits, AVOID, but if you have a genuine passion for the subject (virology), you may do well, but even then its still very hard, as he makes his Multiple choice very confusing and tricky.

Well, the course content is very tough and one needs a solid background in cell bio and molecular genetics to get that content. Prof is very simple, presents info as least confusing as possible, attending class is mandatory, take lecture notes, BEWARE: Immense amount of memorization. His MCQs are hard!!!!

Good at explaining concepts but the amount of stuff you have to study and memorize is ridiculous

Loads and loads of memorization. This is the most heavy biology course I've ever taken at York. The professor needs to understand this and make the tests/exam easier (considering we have other course work on our head as well, regardless of when the test is given). The information is so detailed, and that detail is required on the tests and exams!:(

Very good proff, very clear in what you need to memorize and what you do not need to know. Tests are fair and if you study well you will definitely get an A. He does bell curve so don't worry too much and the final is EASY. Make sure you record his lectures though because alot of the test material are from his notes.

He's a good professor whose very clear about what he's teaching. I found his lectures interesting. Memorization is a part of the course since he does talk about a variety of viruses. Studying straight from his notes is fine if you don't really want to read the textbook. But just make sure you still understand the figures he talks about.
