Quarter: Winter 2019
Grade: N/A

Dr. Blaire really cares about her students, and tends to have very useful office hours. The TAs are equally really helpful about questions you may have about labs. Their research is also really interesting.
This is a very challenging class, as it should be because it is 6 units. It isn't recommended that you take this class with Ochem or Physics because of the amount of time you would need to study for the class.
There are two types of exams: lab practicals and lecture exams. The tests are all very fair, but there is a lot of memorization involved (which will be time consuming). The memorization involved in the class is mostly insertions/origins/functions/homologies of the animals and bones/bone parts (it helps with later understanding of the functions). The labs are really useful because they help understand the lecture material.
Lecture, for the most part, is mandatory because of the participation points you would get via iclicker. The questions are very integrated with the lecture material, and help with later studying for the exams. Dr. Blaire is an amazing lecturer because she is very passionate about what she teaches.
There are a lot of resources to do well in the class, and I wish I could take it again.
