Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted March 2, 2021 Grade Received: A

Kane has to be my favorite professor at UCLA! She is super understanding and truly cares about her students. She made the class enjoyable and was super approachable. Her tests are also fair and consisted of T/F, multiple choice, and short answers. There was also plenty of time to complete the exam. I hope I get the chance to take another class with her before I graduate, but they fill up quick because she really is one of the best professors here at UCLA.

I think this is my favorite EEB class I've taken at UCLA so far. Dr. Kane was very helpful and nice and this class was very good in terms of having clear expectations. Not an easy class, but definitely reasonable, enjoyable, and interesting. Would definitely recommend it. Also offered some EC!

Dr. Kane is an amazing, approachable, and kind professor. She is engaging and cares about her students' well-being, in addition to their success. I made super-comprehensive study guides to ace this class (A+). It was kind of tedious going through and answering all her study questions but it was useful, and I still have my notes from it that worked out well for me! I can spare you the hassle by sharing my guides.

My friends have all used them to do well in her class too, and I've been asked to sell them a lot, so if you're interested in it, just text or email me at [email protected] for the midterm and final study guides! They are consistent with all of the 2019 and 2020 course materials. $15 for everything that helped me get an A+ :)

Professor Kane was the most absolute sweetheart. I would retake this class if I could. The work was clear and very manageable. I took this class over the summer during the 6-week session and it went by extremely fast which was awesome. I never had a true interest in the marine side of ecology but after this class, I might not be so sure anymore. The class was structure to a method I really enjoy learning, so maybe that is why I also enjoyed the class. You had modules due every week ranging from 2-4 that had quizzes to go with them. There was a midterm during week 4 (no work that week) and then of course the Final Exam. The exams were very reasonable and very straightforward. I loved her exams for that reason since she wasn't trying to trick you on any of the questions. It was just a matter of looking through your notes and matching the best answer. The discussion portion was not bad either, I did like the lecture just a bit more though. Oh, also the quizzes you took could be opened for days as they were not timed and due on a specific day. So you had plenty of time to construct and find answers.

Really fun and interesting. Kanes classes are all relatively similar to one another. If youve taken a class with her, its pretty much similarly structured.

Concepts covered are interesting, exams are extremely straightforward so long as you paid attention in lecture and reviewed slides, and overall, not too bad.
