Bio 365 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

I took Infectious Disease with him and it has been my favorite biology class at Duke. Lectures were always interesting and midterm/final assignments were super creative. Never thought I'd have to write a paper about zombie pathogens or eradicating the human race. Definitely recommend this course

BIO151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Agree with the previous comment, but I think the lectures are boring largely b/c of its dry content. Johnsen tries hard to make it sound very interesting, but often to no avail. Use of textbook highly recommended, since his lectures follows the book EXACTLY even though he does not explicitly say so.

Bio151L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a very boring lecturer. Just attend one class, you will know what I mean. Yes, bio 151 was very tough class. Labs are very time consuming and frustrating at times. You will basically have to spend many of your weekends to write the lab report(whole day). Tests are multiple choice but they are extremely ambiguous and hard.
