Genetics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Dr. Baldwin is awesome! just finished taking this course. He definitely knows his stuff. u are warned, u absolutely have to study and put time and effort into the class. Powerpoints, solutions manual for hw questions+30hrs=A. Dr. Baldwin wants everyone to understand genetics. this stuff can be hard but with him its not! truly an awesome professor!

Dr. Baldwin will tell you exactly what to do in order to do well: read the chapters, do the assigned questions (some of them will be in the exams), and attend class. The subject isn't the easiest, but if you put in the time, you will do well.

took him over the summer along with biochem and then came some family problems, failed the class, but I am retaking the class with him as soon as i get a chance. very good professor, tests are not tricky, but its only 30 questions for about 5 chapters. tests are mainly on PP he goes over. recommended.

The class is super easy but the material is so freaking boring. I think the class is harder bc of how boring the material is. Esp around test 3. Solutions manual + powerpoints + 20 hrs = A

The best Genetics teacher. He is still hard to get an A in but he is not a GPA killer and you learn A LOT. I feel like I understand Genetics after taking this class. Prepare to study a lot, but your efforts will be rewarded because his tests are based off what he tells you to study (PowerPoint, homework problems). Take him for Genetics!!!!!!!!!

PCB3036 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are not mandatory. His tests are very difficult. Know all the end of the chapter problems if you want to pass. Spent over 30 hours studying for each test and passed with an A. People all around me failed this class so it's not for slackers. Study hard and you will do well. Solutions manual is a MUST! 30 MC questions on 5-6 chapters.

PCB3063 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The exams are 100% based off of his lectures. Do the HW problems, he uses some of those. Gives a couple extra credit q's each test. I've heard people complain but his tests are definitely fair NOT tricky. My lowest test score was a 96 and I only relied on his powerpoints/solutions manual. VERY fair

Great teacher! Made a complicated topic very understandable and enjoyable. His powerpoints and teaching method makes for a great learning experience. He selects questions from each chapter for homework. DO THEM! If you keep up with the material and do the assigned problems you will have no problem in the course. Plus, you get to learn!

Excellent professor. Take genetics over the summer, you won't regret it! He gives you all the information you need to do great on the exams. Very helpful too, goes above and beyond to explain something if you don't understand.
