Tufts University: Eli Siegel - Biology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
AWFUL COURSE. I took it to fulfill a science requirement and was very disappointed. The subject could be interesting, but Siegel spends way too much time on the molecular level and then randomly mentions diseases in the middle of a lecture and then never mention it again. His explanations contradict diagrams in the books and he only has one explanation for every topic, so seeing him during office hours is useless. At the beginning of the semester, my class had about 25 people. By the end, we were down to 8 or 9. Find something else to fulfill a science requirement.
Reading load is standard but if you don't understand it, he's not a great resource for help. I thought the tests were impossible (he asks the strangest questions that require calculators) and nothing is straight forward. No homework due in classes, though, but if you don't read, you won't understand anything.
