Tufts University: Harry Bernheim - Biology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2006-05-25

Review:
I personally think that for bio 14, in general, it helps a lot to be able to read about a topic thoroughly before AND after a lecture from what's provided in the textbook. With Bernheim, there is absolutely no room for that. If you missed a lecture, you have to go to Tisch and fight over videos that end up broken anyway, and you can't read about it in the textbook because NOTHING IS THERE! I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS GUY GETS HIS INFO FROM, AND IT DROVE ME CRRRAZY! I couldn't stand it because sometimes, when I don't get something from a lecture, it helps to go read on it, but I couldn't with this one. and that's some bullsh*t. But I'm pre-med, so i had to do it.

Workload:
Memorize every lecture. I'm not kidding. For Chew, it's all textbook. For Ellmore, it was all about the lecture, but the info was in the textbook in case u needed it. For this guy, don't miss class. ever.

Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2006-04-27

Review:
Professor Bernheim is a great professor. He teaches a very interesting physiology section of Bio 14 and is the only professor from bio 13 or 14 during which I did not feel bored or tired during.

Workload:
Although the best teacher out of Bio 13 and 14, I felt as though his test was the unfairest. As for all the tests, how much you know can take you only so far. The key is reading the question and interpreting it the way they want you to.

Harry Bernheim | BIO104 - Immunology | Biology2006-03-27

Review:
Prof is very enthusiastic about course, talks very fast, almost everyone records the lecture to listen to later. Material is interesting, would probably take another class with same prof.

Workload:
Work is pretty straight forward, reading the book helps but tests are entirely based on class notes. Prof tells you what you need to memorize. Test averages are high, no curve, good amount of partial credit

Harry Bernheim | BIO104 - Immunology | Biology2005-11-29

Review:
The professor was definitely enthusiastic about this course since he worked with one of the molecules during his doctorate which was Il-1. Uh, Il-1 is one of the nearly thousands of molecules to memorize on this class. BUT he tells what to memorize so you don't have play guesswork. This is a great course. I loved it. Immunology is cool since you get to see all of the special forces against the viruses and bacteria. Like did you know that if you had a worm inside of you there's a special antibody for it?

Workload:
Tests are not cumulative but they are (confused?). While the subsequent tests don't test directly on prior material, the actual material on the exams build on prior material. Also, since the class is taken by lots of nerds who have taken organic chemistry, the average is high enough to prohibit a curve. So if you slack off once, you're DOOMED. The tests go from easy, very hard, to Extremely hard. But the averages stay consistent even though he tried his hardest to make a difficult test. Tests are 33% each and are essay based questions. But I encourage you to take the class since the textbook is great reading! and enough for test preparation.

Harry Bernheim | BIO075 - Comparative Vertabrate Physiology | Biology2005-11-02

Review:
Prof. Bernheim is so awesome and entertaining. The lecture involves a lot of student participation and jokes.

Workload:
Not much work except some intense studying prior to exams. Exams are short answer and graded very fairly and always based on things that were thoroughly covered in lecture.

Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2005-05-01

Review:
Everyone looks forward to this section of Bio 14 because this is the part where you finally learn about animals. Unfortunately, Prof. Bernheim makes you lose interest by throwing complicated equations and convoluted jargon at you throughout the duration of the lecture. To his credit, he is very enthusiastic about his section of the course, but he often alludes to other courses he teaches, which takes away from the current lecture. I would not take another class with him.

Workload:
Not too much reading was assigned. There was one exam at the end of the section that was curved.

Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2005-04-30

Review:
One of the best Profs at Tufts. Funny informative, concerned with students' progress. There is nothing bad to say about this man except that he talks so freakishly fast that your hand might fall off trying to write everything down. However, he is happy to go over anything in office hours!

Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2004-11-15

Review:
(Harry Bernheim/ George Elmore / Prof. Chew)

Wow.... be prepared... for teachers who talk fast, crack lots of jokes.. and have your hand moving faster than it has in any other class. Coming out of bio 13, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find yourself challenged with the material and actually awake during class. I found myself occasionally going to the library to watch the videotape after class, because I didn't get all the information written down during class. Review sessions are essential to go to, especially before the exam, because a lot of things are explained..that just might pop up on the exam. I really like their optional quizzes, helping you to get a few extra points if you find yourself borderline between two letter grades. The labs are MUCH better than bio 13. Basically if you made it through bio 13 alive... you're good to go. Bio 14 will demand you to pay attention during class, but at least you'll want to. The professors keep you engaged.

Workload:
Workload... not nearly as bad as bio 13. a lot less reading, but you have to really pay attention in class. Fortunately the exams are all based on the material covered, and don't have as much RANDOM information as bio 13... Be sure to memorize the experiments...they are important.

Harry Bernheim | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2004-04-14

Review:
These professors (Harry Bernheim/George Ellmore/Harry Bernheim) are way more enthusiastic than those teaching Bio 13. They?re a lot more funny, but sometimes try too hard. All are very helpful. I learned a lot.

Workload:
1/4 as much reading as bio 13. The exams are straight from the lectures, so you don?t have to read if you don?t want to. Very little work for a science course. Love it!
