Tufts University: Jan Pechenik - Biology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jan Pechenik | BIO164 - MARINE BIOLOGY| Biology2004-04-23

The title is not what it seems, more about invertebrate biology. LOTS of memorization, hard, dry and cold. I didn't like his lectures, does not get to the point and reviews things very generally. At one point, when asked a question, he doesn't actually provide an answer, with indications throughout that all is easy and obvious ('but really, it?s in the book so don't ask me')
Disrespectful, doesn't look at you when you talk to him in office hours.

Insane amounts of reading, you could pass by just reading and not showing up.
Straightforward exams.
Extra credit work worth doing.
