Ratings for Baldwin, B G
Based on 65 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: He tells you straight up that his lectures will be on the exam. More helpful to look at his lecture slides because he puts notes on the bottom that tell you detailed information. So happens that his exams + final were the same. They were specific but at least he told you beforehand to study his notes which made the plant section of bio my favorite!

Comment: Botany is the hardest section in Bio 1B in my opinion, there is so much to remember. Memorization is key. Baldwin is very nice and helpful during office hours he will straight up tell you what he will not test you on, saves time. He also tries to remember your name if you go to office hours and he greets you when you arrive and wishes you well when you leave. During lecture it just dull because of so much information but at times it picks up.

Comment: He is such a sweet guy. He writes everything you need to know for the exam on his lecture notes online. I really had a new-found appreciation for plants after his section. He is a bit monotonic though.

Comment: His lecture notes are very clear. He puts the slides online and also includes a written part underneath it that has everything you need to know for the exam. However, he is sooooo boring...I started webcasting all the bio1B lectures during this unit. The exam is not that bad. It was the second hardest test out of the three units.

Comment: I thought Prof. Baldwin was actually fairly enthusiastic and approachable, though slightly monotone. I enjoyed the plant section and he seemed passionate about the subject. I enjoyed this section of the class.

Comment: He was the most boring/monotone of the three professors who teach Bio 1B in the fall. Of all three fall Bio 1B professors, he wrote the HARDEST exam questions. His lectures were OVERLOADED with information - compared to the other two parts of the course, there was nearly double the amount of information packed into each lecture.
