Comment: Raurie is a great teacher to have, and he has some great stories to share. Everything in his lecture slides is fair game for his tests, and you don't really need to go to lecture. However, it's worth going because some topics can be a little confusing. And it's helpful to hear Raurie explain it out loud.

Comment: If you think the midterm and final exam, where you have to memorize lots and lots of animal facts, is your only challenge, then boy are you mistaken! You have 2 lab exams on animal taxonomy. There are field trips every weekend where you have to find someone on your own to carpool with from Pt. Reyes all the way to Sunol (with reports you must write afterward). There is an individual field project where you study an animal and write your own report without any clear direction whatsoever from anybody. If you can deal with that (and have a surprisingly good time doing it), then take this class.
