Quarter Taken: Fall 2019 Submitted June 17, 2020 Grade Received: A

I am coming back from just finishing PhySci 111B... and I am very very happy I stayed a PhySci major despite all the negative things Ive heard. YES, it is hard. YES, I did question my abilities like crazy. But I and many other people did this! You can too. Dont let anyone tell you what you should or shouldnt do. If you want to be PhySci, BE PHYSCI!!! 107 was the best class Ive taken so far and I would do the series all over again if that meant choosing phy sci again. Good luck incoming juniors!

This is an incredible class. You get to work with cadavers and learn the exact material you'll be seeing again in medical school, if you're pre med of course. Professor Phelps is extremely approachable, provides very clear notes, and offers plenty of opportunities to get your questions answered. This class absolutely has a massive amount of material, and Phelps's half is definitely harder. But, those who say that if you're premed, don't be a phy sci major because its too hard, DO NOT listen. This is an incredible major for premeds, and if you found this class too hard, medical school is sooo NOT for you. All you need to do is keep up with the material, which itself isn't very hard, its the amount that makes it hard. If you have poor study habits, you won't do well. Both Phelps and Frischia are AWESOME professors, just be prepared to work!

If you are not going to medical school, save yourself and switch to another major. This class is very intense and involves a lot of memorization. The class is composed of 6 quizzes, 2 exams, and 2 practical exams. For the quiz part, your grade solely depends on your TA. If your TA is chill and asks for easy indemnification questions you will be fine. If not, well expect to miss at least 4 points out of every quiz (each one is out of 20).

For the practical, make sure to work a lot on open lab. You need to know every single specimen.

For the exams, its actually simple. Memorize every single word in her notes. Every word is literally there for a reason and you need to phrase things exactly as in her notes.

Overall, she is a good professor, but the workload is insane.

Easily one of my favorite professors! Very easy to approach, actually interested in making sure you understand the material. Mostly straightforward test questions, although they do require a thorough, solid understanding of the material. Make sure to go over the lecture notes, emphasize the book less and use it mainly for diagrams.

Took Physci 107 AND Physci 146 with her.

Dr. Phelps is extremely nice and approachable. She really wants to help you learn and is easy to talk to. She is at her office a lot and talking to her at office hours helps especially for Physci 146. For both classes she hands out the printed lecture notes at every class so that you never have to print anything on your own. The notes are straightforward and easy to read and her lectures follow it very well. She presents interesting information and I wasn't bored in her classes. Her exams are straightforward as well and as long as you study hard and memorize pretty much everything, you'll get an A. Her PS 146 class is a small sized class that includes reading articles and presenting on one, but it isn't bad at all. I enjoyed her classes very much and I think she's one of the best professors I've had at UCLA.

107 is pretty intense, lots of information-keep up, but Dr. Phelps is awesome, such a caring professor.

Professor Phelps is awesome! She is super organized and really stands out among other UCLA science professors. She cares for her students and really makes sure that they leave with useful information. Her tests are straightforward. She is not trying to trick you. Just be sure to memorize everything on her notes. I took her for PS 107 and PS 146 and she was consistent throughout. THe PS107 practical is actually pretty cool. You have to identify parts of the brain when the specimens are in front of you. If you pay attention during lab and study during open lab you will do fine. Her midterm stresses the material that she writes herself/leaves blanks for on her outlines. She does give a lot of interesting information on the side, but its not heavily emphasized on the test. If you liked her teaching style for PS107 then take PS146 as an elective. It is a small class so you really get to know her and its easy to learn the material. Its not too difficult to get an A in her classes. It just requires that you know the material. No trick questions :)

Professor Phelps is very organized and I found it very easy to study off of her notes for the first half of 107. Though there was a great amount of information from her lectures, I felt like it wasn't very hard to memorize all of it simply because the information all connected in one way or another. Her labs were very eye opening, but you do have to pay attention in labs&open labs.
This was a very difficult class because of the massive amount of information. Make sure to study for the weekly quizzes, the time you spend studying for those will pay off for the midterm. Her practicals wasn't too hard, if you paid attention is labs and open labs you will do fine! Goodluck!
