Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted June 20, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

Course Taken: LS2

This class was great! Professor Esdin is such a great lecturer. I really recommend taking his LS2 class. It definitely is not a walk in the park as the tests require great understanding and application of the course material, but definitely doable. I recommend going to his office hours; he really cares for all of his students.

nice professor, focus on material and the lecture is not such important.
sell PHYSCI 5 course reader for $30 only.(original price 50) text 310-721-5821

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Dec. 13, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

Professor Esdin is smart, clear, and just sweet. This class is easy, the perfect thing for my first quarter at UCLA. Going to lecture is helpful, you know what he puts emphasis on for the tests and he clarifies what can be sometimes confusing science jargon in the course reader. Get started on the project as soon as it is assigned, go to lecture, read the course reader (with a highlighter! so helpful), and you will be fine. Plus, you actually learn information relevant to your daily life! And Esdin tells funny stories in class, especially the diabetes one :) Take it and find out!

LS 2
I took LS 2 with Esdin in Summer 2014. Mostly, his lectures and slides are clear. However, his exam is very poorly worded and confusing. Once I found that the exam key must be wrong, he refused to regrade.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted June 19, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

I took LS 2 with Arnold/Esdin in Winter Quarter.

Esdin: I LOVE ESDIN. BEST TEACHER EVER.
His lectures are very engaging and he explains things very well. To do well, I recopied all the notes into a separate notebook and went to his office hours. GO TO OFFICE HOURS. He often drops hints at test questions. If you hear "that's a good idea for a test question" WRITE IT DOWN IMMEDIATELY.

His tests are completely based on lecture and they are very fair.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TEACHER. He deserves like an 8 or something at least on BW.

Arnold: His lectures are pretty boring and he does not seem to teach the right material...All I learned was stuff about fish and lizard mating...
Fortunately, his multiple choice questions are pretty easy and his tests are also lecture based...
All in all, he was boring and his office hours were useless but he was not super difficult...

Grade Received in LS2: A

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted June 20, 2014 Grade Received: N/A

Professor Esdin is awesome! He didn't reg. this class until the second week, so I missed some classes and works, but he ended up gave me some points to those works which is absolutely great!
And there is a Chinese TA whose classes may not be fun, but she is very nice and helpful! Recommend her rather than the other TA.

*** I am selling the course reader, feel free to text me if you are interested, 857-919-3630.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Jan. 6, 2014 Grade Received: N/A

Overall, this is one of the easiest classes I have taken. Its all memorization, so just make sure you read the course reader, take good notes, and memorize your notes thoroughly. Going to lectures is not necessary other than the days he gives out answers to the exams. He usually does this on Fridays near the end of lecture so I would only show up for the last 20 mins of lecture on Fridays and still managed to get an A.

Im also selling my course reader with an active iProfile account. The course reader is in perfect condition with no notes! Please text 714-351-6322 if you are interested!

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Aug. 6, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

kinda easy ge class.

one project which should be submitted by the end of the course and two midterms (I guess).

Midterms are quite straightforward if you attend lectures and read course reader.

you take midterms at computer lab; mutiple choices and you just click the answers.

Much more attractive than what you expect from the title 'Diet and Exercise'

Also, i sell course reader (Good condition) and study guide (almost new); these are at $15; just text or call on 310 808 5428

Course Taken: Physci 5

This class was overall a great class. The professor lectured great and went over the information very thoroughly. The class consist of a project which was worth 100 points, 150 for both midterm and final (multiple choice), 36 points for 4 question quizzes (you take 3 of them online),and 14 points for attending lab. You only have to go to lab 5 times for the whole 10 weeks and the TA just goes over what you need to do in the project.
I'm also selling both the study guide booklet and course reader. Study guide is brand new never written on and the course reader has very few writings in it. Both in good condition though. Contact me if you want to buy it: jacqueline_alayvilla@yahoo.com

Took Phy Sci 5 Winter 2013.

Not a walk in the park, but not too bad as a GE.

No essays and hw, but there are online quizzes, mt, final, and project.

3 online quizes which you take at home. Short, like 3 questions. Not too bad.

MT: multi choice, done on computers in the computer rooms. You gotta study.. some of it is common sense but don't be a retard and assume its gunna be handed to you.

final: same as MT. but a bit harder i think. Study the course reader.

project: TA helps you through it. It isnt that bad. Just record your diet/activity for a week, then analyze stuff about it. Again, the TA helps you through it during discussions.

Overall, its not a horrible GE, but it is memorizing. Of course the big idea is to basically eat more fiber and exercise more frequently, but theres also details youre tested on like enzymes and muscle types and all that. So... dont expect it to be ridiculously easy like some people might say.

Also... 8am when i took it. But lectures arent really that important. Just the coursereader.
