Fall 2019 - I don't come from a STEM background nor am I smart, but I still managed to get an A- in this class largely because Professor Schauble is very generous with the grading of this class. First of all, an A- in this class is 88%. He also offers a maximum of 2% extra credit by watching and writing a short report on episodes of Planet Earth or Blue Planet, making an A- in this class basically an 86%. I got a C+ and a B- on the midterms and a B on the final and still got an A- in this class because of how the class was set up. The largest grade booster in this class is the lab section. Lab is a grueling two hours, but it was a necessary evil because the quizzes were really easy and made up a large portion of the grade. Showing up and doing the long worksheet made up another large portion of the grade, further diluting the weight of the exams. There is also a lab final, which is essentially a glorified lab quiz which makes up 10% of the grade. If you study for 15 minutes right before the quizzes, you'll get a 10/10. Therefore, if you study the quizzes that are handed back for about an hour, you should get 100+% (there is extra credit) on the lab final. As for the exams, they're actually somewhat difficult: the multiple choice is easy but the short answers actually require some deeper knowledge of the topics. Other reviewers have mentioned that you should read the textbook and you'll be fine. Although I'm sure it worked for some, but for me, it didn't help too much. The main reason why I did so much better on the final than on the midterms was because I stopped looking at the textbook as my predecessors have recommended and instead focused on the lecture material. All in all, it's a pretty decent class and you don't even need to show up to lecture. The content can be really boring at times, but for a relatively easy A, I'd say its worth it.
