Comment:
I can honestly say i hated this course. Taking it online was not fun at all and I personally found the content to be extremely confusing and you really had to put in a lot of work to even understand it. Once I did understand it, I struggled to finish the midterm and exam on time and ended up doing poorly because of that. Bad course, prof was ok tho

4P10 is the class that makes or breaks you in Kin. Prof Gabriel explains things well & gives you the tools that you need to succeed but it's super important that you attend the lectures & do all of the practice problems. It's not so much about memorizing, it's more about understanding the process. Great guy, just don't expect him to hold your hand.

Comment:
I was terrified for this, but I did pretty well bc I made sure to commit a WHOLE day per lecture to teach myself / do EVERY practice question provided. He's good at teaching, but is harsh & straight up. Take advantage of your TAS, they will help u if u ask. u will either do horrible or amazing no in between, its up to U. His exams are pretty fair.

Bad class taught by outdated professor. Dr. Gabriel's lectures are weak, finish when he wants to no matter the time period for this class, and he refuses to answer questions. Not willing to admit his mistakes in class. Brutal assignment. Final exam was brutal. No clear marking key or grading criteria used. TA not helpful.

Comment:
The final exam does not provide nearly enough TIME to critically apply any of the concepts attained in the course. As someone who takes a lot of pride in academia, I would go as far as saying that the final exam was a form of psychological abuse as it did nothing but create anxiety (not only during, but days after the exam).

Not helpful to students. Rude during my interactions with him. Talked to me as though I was still in high school and could not explain his own mistakes in class.

I enjoyed David Gabriel as a prof. The course is very challenging and stimulating, but overall I think he taught the class well and made the midterm, term assignment and final very fair.

appears friendly at first, tells a bunch of jokes and useless stories in class. Completely unhelpful and rude outside of lecture. Pulls out random questions on midterm and final and doesn't give you enough time to finish them. horrible prof

Comment:
Lectures are funny, I'll give him that but he really screws people over on the midterms and exams. He pulls questions from way out of the box for the tests, which is fine if only he gave enough time to figure them out and think about them! Not enough assignments to distribute your mark and funny enough it was the only class without course eval

Funny guy in lectures but very different when you go and see him in his office. Will come up with questions that you have not been prepared for and won't give you enough time to complete them..

WOW! I heard this was a hard course but apparently people think chewing gum and walking is tough. this was the easiest course I have ever taken I only showed up to 3 lectures and still got a 95. This was easier than the work my girlfriend had to do in teachers college. Any more courses like this and I can just skip med school and get an honorary MD

Fantastic! Great to work with and let me tell you why… do you think you know how to eat chicken wings? Well you don’t… not till you learn from BIG D. Seriously though he also can eat Mandarin like you’ve never seen!!! And if your lucky he will let you work with him! An Honour and a Privilege!
