Tufts University: Philip Starks - Biology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Philip Starks | BIO130 - ANIMAL BEHAVIOR| Biology2006-03-29

The class was ok until the professor screwed us over with the final exam - he changed the whole format and asked for random information he had never focussed on before. It was awful. His exams in general are very detailed and difficult, but they are based pretty strongly on class notes and on previous tests. Prof Starks tried to make the class interesting and interactive, which is somewhat difficult at 8:30 am. I wouldn't recommend this class to anyone that doesn't have to take it for some sort of major requirement.

There was a lot of reading, and if you didn't read the extra assigned articles you were screwed because he always included ridiculously detailed questions about them on the exams. The only real work you had to do for the class however was show up to class and study a few days for each exam.
