Ratings for Kuriyan, J
Based on 21 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: Professor Kuriyan is one of the most eloquent professors at Berkeley. His lectures are well-structured and -oriented that even non-Biologists will be able to latch on and be engaged in the topics discussed. Professor Kuriyan's homeworks are relevant to questions on the exam, so it's highly advisable that you review them before all his midterms. Kuriyan's exams are reasonable and are based on materials emphasized in class. There will be 3 midterms and 1 finals for MCB C100A. Kuriyan writes the first two midterms and Wemmer the third midterm and the final. The curve for Kuriyan's exams are around 70% with a healthy SD of 15%.

Comment: Kuriyan was the more straightforward professor and his notes are easier to follow. He was pretty clear/passionate about the topics he liked or tested. Overall I wish I paid more attention to his lectures and remember VDW rules!
