Most Helpful Review
Winter 2018 - My review is based on the Winter 2018-19 quarter. Even if you are extremely interested in the "physiology of nutrition," THINK AGAIN BEFORE TAKING THIS CLASS. I enrolled in this course because of my passion for the topic. I thought I would receive a life-changing UCLA education on it, but I've never been more mistaken. We barely saw our professor because there was a guest lecturer almost every week, and they usually sped through their powerpoints because of the insane amount of material covered. Overall, lectures were very scattered and unorganized, with no apparent order and flow. On top of that, powerpoints were never uploaded to ccle, and the class was not bruincasted. I ended up only going to lecture to catch the mandatory sign-in sheet. RIP.. Grade breakdown: - 30 points, 30 question multiple choice midterm (I got 26/30) - 20 points, 2 page, double-spaced body composition assessment (I got 19.75/20) - 50 points, 50 question multiple choice CUMULATIVE final (I got 42/50) - 100 points total (I got 87.75/100) I ended up getting an A-, so that means that our class had at least a 2.25% grade bump up. So... the take-away message is this: If you learn best through lectures like I do, this is not the class for you. This ain't it chief. Save yourself. HOWEVER, if you don't mind crappy lectures, along with reading and memorizing every detail from a 300-page, poorly written course reader on your own, feel free to give it a shot. And good luck. In my opinion, this class needs an extreme makeover.
