Comment: Zusman was my favorite out of the three MCB professors! I believe he retired though so he won't be teaching MCB 102 again but he had this huge reader with all the lecture slides printed out. I liked that his exam wasn't a lot of memorizing but more focused on application of the information. The only downside I would say is that he spoke too softly and I could never hear him when I sat him the back.

Comment: My favorite out of the three professors. He provided a reader that contained everything we needed to know and although he was very soft-spoken I really enjoyed his demos and his comical ways of helping us remember concepts. He also showed videos that really helped you understand fundamental concepts. Unfortunately, he will be retiring this semester….his final was very long but very doable.

Comment: I also really liked Professor Zusman's section. He lectured from a reader and was very straightforward in terms of the concepts we needed to know. Final was all free response. The trickiest part is the questions where he asks you to design experiments but other than that his final was fair. Very soft spoken but also had lots of funny, sarcastic jokes to help remember some of the main concepts. However, he's retiring after the end of this school year, so I don't think he'll be teaching the genetics/ DNA module for the next year.

Comment: Zusman was the best out of the three professors for Fall 2012. He definitely goes into detail but he doesn't overwhelm you with every tiny detail.
