There isn't much to say about this class. Every MIMG major must take this course. My biggest issue with the professors is that they tended to jump around a lot between T cells and B cells which I thought made the class unnecessarily confusing. I think that the organization should be first half B cells and second half T cells so that it is less confusing. As any one of your friends will tell you, the class is known for its very challenging tests. Be prepared to have a test question about a protein mentioned in one slide in one line ONLY. I do not advice this class for someone who is just starting their upper division course work !

As I think every MIMG major does, I dreaded this course. But it really has the same effect as Biochem 153A, whether you are interested in it the subject or not the course makes you respect the field, the research, and the professors teaching. I got an A- in the class and can give you some tips on how to do well. Attend lecture to identify which concepts they are stressing in the reader. The reader can be unorganized and the diagrams are poorly printed making it difficult to understand which material is actually important. The homework problems due every week are old exam questions and extremely helpful. Make sure to understand all techniques and the different ways you can apply them to the material. You can use all your notes and books during the exams but don't rely on this. Make your own lists of key terms and definitions, flag important pages on your reader, and bring the old test answer keys because sometimes questions can be similar. Attend OH with a good TA. This year Chris Nixon was definitely the superstar TA going out of his way to make extra OH almost every day for 2 weeks before the final. He also made quick reference sheets of all the IL's and T and B cell specific markers which saved SO much time during tests. Goodluck!

mimg 185A is definitely one of those classes that require a LOT of studying but is worth taking because it is very INTERESTING and the professors are wonderful. okay, let's get things straigthened out, this class is definitely not easy, but if you want to actually LEARN something IMPORTANT in your so many years stay UCLA, you should definitely take this class. both dr. morrison and dr. zack are very good professors - knowledgeable and very approachable. the course reader was definitely helpful too - esp. during the midterm and the final. and lastly, if you ever pick a TA for discussion, pick JAY DELA CRUZ. he is like a GOD, who actually takes time to help his students and is very NICE and VERY smart. i'm not kidding. i have had people from different discussion sessions sit in my discussion every single time just for JAY's lecture. I definitely loved MIMG 185A - even though it did take up much of my sleep time and somewhat of my social life -why shouldn't I, i got my money's worth and I walked out of the class much more knowledgeable.
