Dr. Chen was a great LS 107 professor and I’d recommend her for the life science majors who have to take this class. Her lectures were clear and she spent special time to address topics that students were most confused about during the lectures which I found very helpful. My only real gripe is that she went through the lectures slowly so we were rushing through the material in weeks 9 and 10. Tests were very fair and as the other review mentioned, she allowed us to correct our wrong answers and get partial credit back. If you combined the extra credit from test corrections and other stuff sprinkled in throughout the quarter (filling out course evals, giving feedback on lecture videos, etc.), there was like 60 potential points you could earn back. Definitely a professor worth taking either in-person or online.

Originally, I was not going to write this review because I felt like the only one who experienced these problems. But, after seeing another student share similar concerns, I'd like to also share my opinion. It was almost impossible to contact this professor. He originally said he would not give his email out because he checked CampusWire more often, which is completely acceptable, except there were multiple occasions where he did not log onto CampusWire for 4+ days straight in a 6 week Summer Session (you can check when someone last logged on via DMs). When he did log on to CampusWire, he often only upvoted student responses instead of actually answering the questions themselves, even when some questions were left unanswered for 3+ days. Additionally, he made multiple mistakes on his first midterm and instead of acknowledging them, he just wrote on the answer key that one answer was "more correct" than his incorrect answer (even though there was only one actually correct answer). Students won't bother checking answers they already got right when reviewing the answer key, so many students were left making the same mistake on the Midterm II and Final Exam (I could tell because one of the review questions another student made for future exams was similar in concept and I had to explain it to fellow confused students). Despite this, as long as you take this class with a friend so you can ask questions to them, this class is an easy A.

Dr Pham is an angel given to us by UCLA. Never have I ever had a professor who cared about students this much as well as ensured that each lecture is very engaging and fun for the students.
You can tell that he is very passionate about teaching and always wants to make sure that the students' mental health and circumstances are considered during grading and tests. The tests are not that difficult and the content is not that heavy. However, you still need to do the past papers and understand the material well in order to do well in the tests.
There is no reason for anybody to not get an A in this class as long as you put in the effort and attention to the class. He is beyond fair in grading and is very understanding if you have any personal issues which may impede your ability to take the test.
100% would reccomend taking him for LS107. If I had a choice, I would take him for any other class he teaches as well.
