Winter 2019 - People complaining about this man's accent are really trying to cover up the fact they didn't do as well as they wanted to purely due to their own incompetence. Pham's lectures are fast-paced, but he goes over the clicker questions very well, which are all that really matter. I never attended his office hours but every time I asked him something after class, he was nothing but kind and extremely helpful. The LS Core Curriculum have a specific way of explaining problems and he does a great job of explaining what type of knowledge is expected of us. I would go to his lectures to figure out what type of material will be tested and go to your TA's office hours instead because they offer much more personal help.
Fall 2017 - This review is for LIFESCI 7A. Roth-Johnson doesn't require much commitment for this course. Tests and midterms are easy as long as you have read the textbook (which you will have to do anyways because that's part of the homework). She gives extra credit, but it does not affect your overall grade much. Have a friend alert you when a clicker question goes up if you have a tendency to zone out, because they count toward your grade (correctness is not counted, only participation). Overall an easy course. Edit (6/7/2018): LS 7A is now a course taught by Professor Roth-Johnson. I have edited this review to be on the correct course (was formerly on LS 2).
