Comment: I don't remember seeing him during lecture (lol), but his name was on the reader. This class was really tough. One of the hardest classes I've taken at Berkeley. Overall, if youput in the work, you'll learn a lot. Important class for those planning to pursue grad school

Comment: He had the most difficult section. His exams are a bit unclear, and he is somewhat hard to follow sometimes in lecture. He does not seem as approachable as the other professors, but he actually is! He does his best to help confused students, but come prepared. His teaching style is good, and his hand outs are excellent and contain all the information you need to know. You just need to learn to understand his questions.

Comment: Lectures are really clear but exam material is much more complicated than anything in the book or in lecture.

Comment: Garriga was definitely the better prof of the three. He provided good stories/examples that helped you remember the concepts. Overall, this class was just bad. It seems like it would be easy, especially since it is meant for nonscience majors, but in actuality it was a lot more difficult. Reading did not relate much to the topics, and the midterms were very poorly worded, with the GSIs taking off points for very small things. Discussion section is a grade booster, and in the end most of the class received Bs. Take a different class if possible, such as MCB 61 (which I heard was a lot better)

Comment: Garriga was a fair professor who projected the best out of the three lecturers. His midterm was extremely fair game, although I was stuck on a few questions. Just study his slides and lecture notes and you'll be fine.

Comment: Prof Garriga's midterm was fair - based entirely off lecture notes, very straightforward. He was also quite an enthusiastic lecturer and was easy to follow.
