I like Black because he's concerned about student learning which to me is the most important quality about a good professor. I don't know what he's like for LS3 but 132 is a piece of cake. I put in the effort and got an A+. Answers to midterms and finals are given to you before-hand. The key is to answer the questions as you learn the material throughout the quarter, that way you won't be cramming a bunch of material last minute. Make sure you study for quizzes because they add up in points.

One of the best classes I have taken at UCLA. Professor Black and Berk teach it together and they are very passionate about the subject. They are also very approchable professors and they are willing to go out of their way to help the students. The class teaches you many things about nuclear biology, about DNA and how it is made and how genes are transcribed and translated in very, very, very detaled fasion. There is one midterm and a final for which they give you the questions ahead of time, so you can prepare beforehand. For midterm there were about 16 questions for final about 35 questions on the study guide, from which they chose 4 for the midterm and 7 for the final. This can seem a lot, but if you have a friend in the class, you guys can split the questions. There are 6 quizes in the discussions, from which you can drop the lowest grade. I thought the quizes vere pointless, but o well... Overall it is a very informative and very interesting class, I would defenetly recomend it to anyone who is interested in molecular biology.
