Quarter: Spring 2019
Grade: A
July 18, 2019

I was really excited to take this class based on the title, as I had really enjoyed the animal behavior section of EEB 100. Unfortunately, Professor Larison's boring lectures and poor class setup made it very difficult for me to enjoy this class. She taught mainly based on the textbook that you were supposed to read, making her lectures dry and boring. Additionally, there was a group project where you had to make a video of an animal behavior topic, which really didn't serve any usefulness in learning more about the subject, and instead everyone just completed last minute. As boring as this class was, if you have decent critical thinking skills, you can study the slides a few days beforehand and do pretty well on the midterm and final. The rest of the grade is just a couple of in-discussion quizzes on papers and clicker, besides the video. But overall, I wish I had taken a different class to fulfill my requirements my last quarter at UCLA.

I dreaded going to this class every week. The lectures were super dry and I always struggled to pay attention. Larison gave really unclear and boring lectures. Also, attendance was mandatory because of clicker questions.

I was only able to do well because she uploads her slides with her notes and her notes are better and way more helpful than her lectures. Avoid this class if you can.
