Comment: Malkin is your standard bio professor. He wasn't very interesting but he though the material effectively.

Comment: Old guy who knows his stuff and does good old-fashioned chalk-talks. Recommend doing past exams because he definitely repeats some of his questions. Lots of memorization, but then again it is bio so what'd I expect.

Comment: Pretty good professor overall. It's a little hard to understand him in the beginning and he doesn't have a very organized way of lecturing. But he's helpful and his tests are fair. Very helpful to study in groups.

Comment: Fair tests, no homework. Most of what he lectured on and tests on comes out of the reader.

Comment: Pretty good lecturer. He taught the first third, which covered the rudiments of molecular biology. He understands that this is an intro course, so he refrains from delving too deeply into the biochemistry. For me this was a little annoying since this is what I care about most, but it's understandable. Nice guy who seems to genuinely care about teaching.

Comment: Great instructor. Very clear in his explanations and notes. Made the most boring topic learnable and somewhat interesting, especially since he loved teaching so much he came out of retirement to teach this course for us. Loved Malkin!
