Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted Feb. 9, 2018 Grade Received: B

Great professor. I think really liked his literature section of the cluster, it shows how a mostly south campus subject (neuroscience) can be related to a north campus subject (literature). Overall you only need one book for his section of the class and it’s pretty cheap. Very helpful and willing to discuss the literature more in depth. The only reason I got a B instead of an A was probably due to the neuroscience and anatomy subjects on the exams.

Professor Kristal is truly passionate and enthusiastic about what he teaches. Really cares whether his students understand or not. 10/10 would recommend. Definitely would take again.

The course is fun but a challenge, it's doable. The cluster is taught by professors from the subjects: sciences but also humanities. It was a lot of fun. Make sure to form a study group, they help a lot. It's a good intro to life here at UCLA.

I am selling the course textbooks for cheap; the price is negotiable. text me at 323-447-9509
