Best professor I have ever had hands down. Fantastic-- very passionate about the subject, readily answers emails, and motivated me to take more biochemistry. I have nothing but positive things to say-- the class was interesting, and dr. Parrish was the best!

JP is awesome!!! He genuinely cares and he made attending a 9am class very enjoyable. If you are confused ask questions as this course is very content heavy due to the fact that the final is worth 60% and is multiple choice. His clicker questions and extra help sessions are wonderful! Definitely take him over the others. Also his fashion rocks ;)

Pretty straightforwards class, lots of marks I lost were due to reading, so read carefully! Dr. Parrish is pretty clear in class, though not always. He didn't answer my emails very quickly, but his answers were good. Breakdown: 2 20% midterms, 15% assignments, 5% iClicker, 40% final. Overall Dr. Parrish was funny and nice, and a good prof

Biochem 200 is not a fun class! But JP made it so much more enjoyable!! He's so funny, if you need to take the class, take it with him, and you will get the best possible grade!

Dr. Parrish is an awesome professor; he's hilarious and his class is tons of fun. Make sure you show up and take good notes. He explains concepts pretty clearly and knows his stuff. The course itself is challenging so make sure you stay on top of the work. You cannot go wrong if Dr. Parrish is your lecturer!

Dr. Parrish was a great prof, he was clear and explained the notes thoroughly. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about biochem which helped. Midterm was very hard, but final was much more manageable. Attendance is mandatory as he explains topics more clearly than the notes, writing in the margins helped. Good prof though, highly recommend.

I feel like though hes a pretty good prof, helpful, and tries hard, he really doesn't actually care that much about how his students do. Considering the midterm/final are shared between profs, he does not give his students hints about how or what to study (the other prof did). Bioch was okay but definitely not a course I super enjoyed. HARD MIDTERM

5% iClicker participation, 35% midterm, 60% final. Exam material based off notes, but textbook helped explain concepts which couldn't be expanded on in class. That being said, Parrish is an amazing prof! He's always enthusiastic and willing to help students. Makes class enjoyable. Final was fair, but marks are high so definitely know your material.

Awesome prof! Good notes, and explains concepts really well. Iclicker questions were really helpful, and class is mandatory anyways to supplement his notes with what he says. Exams are hard but they are the same through all sections . Would definitely recommend overall!

Great prof! Lectured well and his notes were nicely organized. Also answered board posts and emails promptly. I like the way he distributed the grades in the class (three 15% MTs, 5 online assignments worth 10% in total, 45% final). It's not hard to get a good grade in his class as long as you put in the work.

Dr. Parrish is a good prof and majority of the notes are complete. He goes through the material in a lot of detail but focus on the points in the notes. Tests are specific so make sure to know everything to get the A. Helpful during office hours. He is a happy prof.

Parrish is great :) He takes his time explaining material and uses really good analogies to make concepts clear. He's funny and managed to make biochem class enjoyable. Exams are difficult and marks are competitive, but just study his notes (and make good notes in class) and ask questions if you have them.

One of the best profs I've had. Explained concepts crystal clear, just used to textbook to solidify the information. The class isn't hard at all if you have some previous knowledge of biology. Midterms and final are all fair but read carefully. Makes class fun, has a great sense of humour! Definitely take him.

Funny guy. Boring Class. He is silly in his own way and tries his best to make it interesting. He posts the notes up so you don't REALLY need to go to class. But if you want to ace it I guess you should.

Probably my favourite prof that I have had so far. I'm not really that interested in biochem, but he made class super interesting and was so entertaining. Exams are fair, but I found the final extremely difficult. Hard to get an A in the course though.

AMAZING prof! I'd really reccomend that you take a class with him if you have the chance. I was worried that the content of this class would be difficult to grasp but this guy explains things so amazingly well. Not a hard class at all as long as you don't cram for exams because it's too much material.

Tough class, mainly due to the high curve. But Parrish was a great prof just that it was tough to get an A

Dr.Parrish was fantastic! Class was interesting, and he has tons of office hours and is always happy to help! Having 5 quizzes/midterms seemed like a lot, but it helps recall during finals, and the class was a fantastic experience overall!
