Cell Biology of Nucleus
I took Dr Berk's class in 1987. These young people here don't know what they're talking about - He is detail oriented because the topic is detailed. He conveys a fascination for science and that comes out in the details. What you should be doing is writing down and memorizing everything he says because the guy is a Microbiology God. Things I learned in his class still ring true to this day, 26 years later. When I took his class, you had to take notes or die- there was no internet per se. So, I don't feel sorry for students who have all the slides and notes posted for them in advance of every lecture.
MIMG 132 with Berk and Black is still a great class. This quarter there were 29 possible essay questions for the midterm (3 chosen) and 29 more for the final (4 from final set, 2 from midterm set). As long as you dont procrastinate and prepare your answers this class is fun and easy and you learn a lot about nuclear biology. Professor Black has the more monotone voice of the two but his slides are better and he delivers the concepts clearly, so he is easy to follow as long as you dont fall asleep (I certainly did a few times). Overall, very approachable and helpful.
