Comment: The course is exceptionally boring and that is saying something as a Bio Major. It makes up for the fact that you're guaranteed an A if you can manage to stay awake during lecture and have a functioning frontal lobe. The only interesting lecture was the one on Fat Soluble Vitamins by a guest lecturer. Sharon Fleming is extremely sweet and knows her material. Take this course if you really don't want to be challenged.

Comment: This class is the easiest class I've taken. I only went to the first two lectures of the semester since I felt like they were pointless. The homework assignments are extremely easy, and the exams are too but you still have to put a decent amount of time studying for it (all I did was study the lecture powerpoints, homeworks and discussion worksheets and I got As on all of the exams).

Comment: This class is pretty easy. The assignments are easy and so are the test. Professor Fleming incorporates everything you need to know on the slides and the slides are posted on bspace. You don't even need to go to class. Just read and memorize the slides, do the assignments, and you can easily get an A.

Comment: Boring teacher. I always fell asleep in lecture, so I eventually stopped attending. The material is interesting though, and fairly easy, as they try to not emphasize too much of the "sciencey" aspects. I studied off of the lecture slides and skimmed through the online textbook, and came out of the class with a A+.

Comment: Not as easy as everyone says it is. True that tests are all on the powerpoint slides; however, the powerpoint slides are ridiculously long, like 70 slides per lecture which makes it ridiculously hard to know what to study for on the midterms. I managed to pull a C out and took the class pass no pass. If you're looking for an easy A, this isn't necessarily the class for you unless you took AP Biology and have a strong science background. This is coming from a nonscience/humanities major, there are probably better alternatives out there to get an easy A

Comment: Professor Flemming had a lot of information on her powerpoint slides, which wasn't always on the exams. She really showed a lot of enthusiasm during lecture and was passionate about nutri sci. Her exams were fair and only required you to memorize the information on the powerpoint slides.

Comment: Everything in this course was straight-forward; this class basically highlights on your ability to memorize. If you've taken AP Bio, this course should be easier for you. Slides in lecture are posted online, as is an audio recording of the lecture. Lectures are a bit dry, but the professors do try to explain concepts very clearly.

Comment: Lectures were boring. In fact, they were useless. The homework was beyond easy. Exams were alright, not too bad. She was not helpful and didn't seem interested in the subject. I tried asking her a question once at the end of class. She told me she was done teaching and I should google my question. REALLY NOW?! The other professor, Nastaran, always answers my questions. She's sweet. Fleming is just not cool in that aspect. Overall, NST 10 was easy, but I like the other professor better (Fleming teaches the first half of the semester and then Nastaran takes over). Ok, well,yeah, that's it for now.

Comment: Fleming is very straightforward when she speaks. Though she sometimes uses very simple vocabulary which may seem condescending to some people, her clarity is extremely helpful. Exams are straightforward and require studying the slides and section topics.

Comment: Never went to lecture..only listened to her podcasts. She's okay, I guess. She talked to us as if we were little kids, but at the same it was helpful 'cause it made the information that much easier to understand and get into your head. Overall, this class was pretty easy and fair, and lots of extra credit opportunities during discussion were given.

Comment: This class was definitely not the "easy A" that I thought it would be. The test questions were formatted like those of the SAT; they purposely tried to trick you. At the same time, the lectures were boring and the homework reminded me of what I was doing in the seventh grade.

Comment: I signed up for this class because a friend told me it was easy and moderately interesting. But between my telebears and the first day of class, they switched professors and I ended up with de Lumen and Fleming. As someone on RateMyProfessors so aptly put it: "Setting your powerpoint slides to accessibility-mode where it reads the slides verbatim in a robotic/computer voice pretty much simulates [de Lumen's] lecture." Fleming seemed slightly better, but I never really gave her a chance because by the time she started teaching, I'd realized that there was really no good reason to go to class. As long as you're good at memorization for tests and churning out busy work for homework, the class is a piece of cake, but definitely not enjoyable.

Comment: First of all, I'm not even sure if this is the correct professor to be rating, because I'm pretty sure we had at least four in the course of the semester. Where to begin... I took this course because I had heard that it was one of the easier ways to fulfill the Biological Sciences breadth requirement, and I am by no means a science person. Whoever suggested this was VERY wrong. Apparently they've reformatted the curriculum to make the class more of a serious course. While it still might be an easier class for the requirement, it is NOT EASY. Not only did the professor seem to switch every lecture, but the lectures were incredibly boring and difficult to stay awake through. At the beginning of the course, they claimed the textbook was NOT required... However, when I raised concerns about where some of the test questions had come from, I was told they were readily available in the textbook. COOL. My GSI, Jaime, was relatively helpful and very nice, but nothing spectacular. The assignments are basically busy work that rarely, if ever, relates to lecture or course material. The tests were extremely confusing and it seemed as if they were designed to make you second-guess yourself. I have never encountered 50 more frustrating multiple choice questions. Rather than choosing the "correct" answer, you have to choose the "best" answer. Overall, at least half of the exam questions included material I had never seen before. I also had to raise complaints about testing conditions when one of the lecture halls was given extra (in my opinion unfair) information regarding a few test questions during one of the four exams. When i complained, i was told that the extra information was comparable to various sections' forms of extra credit. (Each section GSI is allowed to give 5 E.C. points during the semester. While some simply give these points away, others require pop quizzes, extra homework, or other assignments to earn the E.C.) While nutritional science is relatable to every day life and forced me to carefully think about my personal diet, I would suggest finding another course.
