Professor Brown is a great professor. She just got her PhD in a mammalogy field so you can tell she is passionate about the subject. I loved her lectures, she put in gifs, and made the material relatable. Everything she tests on is on the slides, and the tests are pretty straightforward if you study, although it can be dense sometimes. Her labs were pretty hard because you have to ID skulls of mammals that can all look pretty similar. My advice is to make a powerpoint for yourself with pics of each skull from all angles and descriptions of each skull in the speaker notes so you can practice IDing skulls at home. My only issue with her is she speaks really quickly, so either learn to type really quickly or record her lectures because they are not podcasted. Overall love her though! I would definitely recommend her as a professor.

Dines is amazing! The class might have been a lot easier because it was an online course but he is a great professor and I would definitely take another course with him. He writes the lecture midterms and exams which are really fair. The TAs are in charge of writing the lab quizzes/assessments but they are not as nice. Overall, I recommend this course because Dines will make it enjoyable even if your TAs try to make the lab portion the worst thing possible.

Pang is a good prof but sometimes he can go a little bit too quickly through the material. He makes it very obvious what you should know for exams and the exams themselves are really straightforward and doesnt have a surprise. You can do well in the class by reviewing slides and notes with the learning goals.

The lab is a bit tougher because of the amount of material you need to memorize. Just take pics, memorize the distinguishing features, and utilize office hours, and youll be good. I had Evan for my TA, he was knowledgeable and pretty great. Clive is also pretty good.

Highly recommend taking it with Pang if you can.
