|School:||University of Virginia|
Pros: Great Lecturer and very engaging, definitely my favorite professor so far!
Cons: Hard to review powerpoints if you didnt take notes/missed something because they only consist of pictures/diagrams
Pros: Excellent Professor
Vivid discussions - are a must for exams because he throws in stuff that isn't in the textbook.
Asks question - engages the students so you can't fall asleep.
Cons: No cons.
|Pros: Willing to help outside of class, we have access to his and all TA's office hours|
Pros: Class seemed to enjoy his humor
Cons: the quizzes are HARD, and are on really obscure things he doesn't mention in lecture, although the first few quizzes makes you think otherwise.
Pros: A good lecturer, engaging lectures, doesn't really throw trick questions on the exams
Cons: The material was really hard for me, and there was definitely a good chance of something being on the test that he didn't go over in class. Exams are pretty much 1/3 book material, 1/3 lecture, and 1/3 overlapping. This made it hard to read because you have to read and consider every little detail. Exams are really detailed and test understanding of cause/effect, and how the little components add up to the bigger picture. I found the tests to be very depressing and upsetting.
Generally a better teacher than Kopeny, and since the material was difficult it made me pay attention in lecture. A nice guy that really knows what he's talking about. Also, he's an immunologist, so any time he talks about diseases (ESPECIALLY cancer) in lecture, it's pretty much guaranteed to be on the test.
Pros: Lectures were very detailed and the Friday review sessions were very helpful
Visual demonstrations to explain complex concepts was helpful
Good sense of humor that wouldn't let me fall asleep
Office hours were very helpful
Cons: Powerpoints only include pictures; not very helpful if you want to go back on your own
Pros: Amazing guy
Makes every class interesting
Cons: Hard class
|Great instructor. Tests are difficult, but if you go to lecture and pay attention, you will do well.|
|It's an easy class as long as you attend lectures and keep up with readings. Kittlesen is the most enthusiastic lecturer I've ever had.|
|take it ONLY if you are required to do so...|
|One of the best professors I had at UVA. Great intro class. Learned tons!|
Pros: fun lectures
Cons: hard tests
Pros: The labs are fairly interesting.
Cons: The quizzes are really difficult and they test the minor points from dozens of pages of reading. The upkeep of the notebook and outside of class work to do well in this class is way too much for only 2 credits.
Pros: Excellent lecturer with enthusiasm for the subject.
Cons: The tests are pretty difficult. They test your understanding of the material more strongly than simply knowing the facts.
Pros: Always prepared
Cons: Didn't feel as though he cared about you and was not always willing to help if you were suffering in his class.
|Read the textbook thoroughly and the class is easy|
|He's a good teacher who's really enthusiastic about the information. The tests are a bit tricky, but there's a curve.|
|Kittlesen is tough, but he's a brilliant man and a great teacher. He really knows his stuff and is genuinely excited about science.|
