Course Taken: Life Science 15


Professor Phelan is passionate about what he teaches and his personality makes the material enjoyable and easy to understand. He not only teaches, but relates it to the real world and how we might encounter it. If you get the opportunity to take his class DO IT!!! (will not regret)

P.S Tests are challenging, regardless it's still worth taking the class

I took him for EEB 135 not MCDB 155 (there were no EEB classes on the drop down menu). Prof. Taylor is a very nice guy. The class itself is difficult because the subject itself is difficult. However, prof. Taylor made it pretty easy because you only need to know the material (mostly formulas) that he goes over in class--which are not a lot, in retrospect. He have his old mid terms and finals posted but there were no answers accompanying them. To do well in the class, I would suggest you to try to do the problems ahead of time and go get help if you don't know how to do them. And yes, I believe that his grading is very generous. He does not have a set curve such that 15% of students get A's etc... So just do your best and you'll be just fine...
