Comment:
I took this DE. One of the most helpful things are his notes. Podcasts are really monotone. Assignments (there are 4) are straight forward with a few where you really need to know your stuff. There's a lot of material so I found the 75% final rough. I found the final to be significantly harder because there's A LOT more material you need to know.

Comment:
Took this course DE. The assignments (4 of them) were very easy and represented material from his lectures, notes, and textbook readings. If you did the work, you'll do fine. The final exam is slightly tougher than the assignments, but still very easy if you did the work. Not a stressful course at all! I highly recommend BIOL 373 DE!!

He's a pretty decent prof. Not the best I've had but still pretty helpful and you can understand his teaching. He sounds like Clint Eastwood.

Does he even exist??? He's never in his office, he responds to e-mails a month later. I had him for DE, and it was frustrating to not be able to contact him! The materail was organized well though, so thumbs up for BIOL 273 DE course! Assignments were great to learn from as well, not overly hard either.

Don't bother making an appointment or going to any office hours.. If you DO go, make sure you knock on his door for five mins str8 becuase i often think he is in his office and just ignoring me. Do the readings.. lab final is hard and exactly as expected, memorization is KEY... memorie EVERYTHING

The course notes are a necessity. I studied the course notes only for the midterm/final (plus diagrams from the textbook) and my final mark was in the high 90s.

A very knowledgeable an organized Prof. Concepts are easy to understand, but tests are tough. Prof. Scott goes a bit quick through lectures to keep up with sometimes, but he is very approachable after class and very friendly.

Comment:
The physiology lab that Norm runs is a joke! It is a waste of time. All of the exercises are pointless and do not apply to what is learned in lecture. The lab exam is not hard, but the lab is so dull you will have problems bringing yourself to study. Also, Norm is not helpful and doesn't return assignments on time. Avoid taking this lab if you can.

Dr. Scott gives a very fair exam, and is a good lecturer. He presents material in a consecutive, interesting (and often humerous) manner. I enjoyed his class.

He is clear and concise and very well organnized. Tests are not difficult at all, as long as you study well, know all diagram in text and understand his course notes. If I can get a good marks and learn in this class, who cares if he never smile!
