HSC 4551 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C+

This is a very interesting class, and the professor is knowledgeable, but it is very challenging. He covers 22 chapters over the course, you have 5 quizzes, 5 exams and 1 cumulative final(there are other small assignments.)I recommend attending class because he tells you what is important for the exam.I also recommend taking online.

He is a very interesting man, always telling stories about when he was still in practice or about his personal life. Didn't interact much with him personally. He really knows his stuff, but the class itself is extremely hard unless you spend most of your time studying for it, which I did not. Take the course online if possible, save yourself!

HSC4537 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

online work at your own pace, lectures are not his, a Dr. Siegfried Fagerberg. Sometimes hard to follow the lectures don't flow together. Just have to work through all the modules, 1000 fill in the blank flash cards and final exam. Lots of information to memorize.

Be ready to study. Doesnt even hint whats on exams, just random slides not to study (5 out of about 50 slides per chapter) Expects you to retain 4-5 chapters of information for a 60 question exam. Exam questions are EXTREMELY minute. As a bio major, this is by far the hardest course ive taken (with this prof) and ive taken classes such as org chem
