Highly recommended. His lecture is clear/easy to follow. Readings are helpful. Essentially no homework. Midterms/Final are straightfoward from lecture/practice questions he uploaded. Generous curve (average=B). Friendly and does really care about his students. Final is not cumulative. His class does not require a heavy amount of work, but appropriate. Best choice for chem classes!

If you are reading this, you are probably a biochem major who has been through a wide range of science classes, and maybe some general education classes and a number of writing classes if you are premed and will probably continue facing several other classes before graduation. chem 156 with yeates is one of the better taught courses. doesnt saturate you with material like mimg101, or 153c. The only better class was 110a with baugh but baugh is going to be gone for a year. yeates lectures, while mostly involve chalk board, are easy to note down and follow (Compared to writing classes where they just lecture on and on with little to no chance to catch up). It might be a challenging class, but its less work than some awful classes out there (again Im looking at you mmimg101 and hardline writing ta's)

He's a pretty cool teacher. He explains the material really nicely. If you attend all the lectures and do the homework, then it should be an easy class. The key to success in this class is to attend all the lectures, because all his tests are from the lecture material (reading the book doesn't help that much). Overall prof. Yeates rocks!!!
cool dude, funny, smart (knows a lot of stuff, way more than any other professor probably does). Grading is also good. He's average is B, which isn't terrible compared to other upper division classes.

Yeates is the most effective and most interesting professor I have had in the chem and biochem department at UCLA. He outlines concepts very well, and in the end you actually feel like you have learned something useful, not just memorized a bunch of worthless biochemical pathways that you will forget after the final (like MOST biochem classes). This definitely has to do with the material being interesting as well, but even interesting material can be butchered by a bad professor. He welcomes questions and is interested about helping you out. Overall, he is a great professor who is enthusiastic about his class, writes fair exams, and is very concerned with your understanding of the material.

Definitely among the best professors at UCLA. Lectures are very conceptual, easy to follow and enthusiastic, making the material much more accessible. Dr. Yeates also has bright and helpful T.A.s who help the class run smoothly. I had a very good time and can honestly say I learned a lot. Would recommend his class to anyone and more professors like Todd Yeates to the chem department.

I do not know why people like his class. He does not know what "teach" and "be patience" at all. I fell sleep every class, becuase the materials are boring and he is boring too. He does not be patience when people ask him the same question in the office hour. overall, I think that he does not get really low rate on this website, because he looks cute.

He is a great prof! His exams are straight forward if you do all the study questions he gives you right before the tests. Also, there is no homework to turn in.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted March 14, 2003 Grade Received: N/A

He's a good teacher for Chem 156 (note that this class is much easier than 110A). He's taught it tons of times and explains things pretty clearly and simply. The homework assignments from the book aren't particularly helpful, but he'll give you old exam questions which are very useful in studying. Also, he's a really cool guy and always available outside of class.

Fair exams, students feel welcome in seeking help from him. Down to earth and easy to communicate with. Would take more classes with him if I could.

Prof. Yeates is one of the best teachers I've ever had at UCLA. He truly loves his students and what he does. You will not regret taking a BioChem class with him. His lectures are well prepared and easy to follow. His tests are very fair. I hope I can take him again someday.
