Comment: Exams in this class are ridiculous-- they focus more on stupid, specific details about the history of toxicology rather than the actual application of real-world toxicological issues. Don't buy the book, just memorize the lecture slides.

Comment: Sort of arrogant and makes the tests very tricky. If you memorize the slides you will be fine for the tests. DO NOT buy the book. they don't use it at all

Comment: Tests are terrible. Refused to correct inconsistencies between lecture and test questions, even for questions that were obviously wrong. Many double negatives in tests, ambiguity, and strange logic in wording questions.

Comment: Bjeldanes was the most difficult of professors - in my opinion. He was the first to teach the subject, and his test was so convoluted and detailed that it was a terror to decode the exam. Also, the textbook is NOT NECESSARY AT ALL! The topics on the exam were ENTIRELY from the powerpoint slides. If you don't understand something on the slides, just ask your GSI or the professor personally.

Comment: Nice, knowledgeable professor. Lectures are pretty dry, but he was very accessible and friendly in office hours. The material he covered was really basic, but his midterm was pretty tricky for a multiple choice test. Memorize the slides (which he puts up before every lecture) and you'll do fine.

Comment: exams were really specific and difficult. luckily there was a curve to help out. Having a really good gsi will be strongly needed especially for this course. The head gsi helped out a lot and was very easy going to appraoch

Comment: Very interesting class, though the lectures are basically word for word out of the textbook. Had more fun reading the book in my spare time than I did attending lecture. Exam was worded poorly, very ambivalent. Had an amazing GSI, Megan, which definitely made the class more bearable. Your GSI could make or break it for you.

Comment: No homework, no assignments, no quizzes, just midterms and finals. :) After each lecturer, there is a midterm. Everything is curved, so the grading is pretty easy. A lot of people don't go to lecture because some lecturers just read off the slides. Just memorize everything on the slides and understand the mechanisms and the midterms/finals should be a breeze.
