8. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Improving my writing ability while learning new skills for physiology.
I learned a lot from this class...on my own. i had no help whatsoever from the t.a. which was Alex not Kara. I did a lot of research on many different types of testing and i found out that I am able to achieve knowledge on my own if I just set my mind to it and that I do not need to rely on teachers for the information.
all of the labs helped to provide me with opportunities to practice what i had learned in lecture
9. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
n/a
I do not like the fact that Kara was not teaching. It was Alex Rhinehart. I absolutely learned nothing from him. He never answers our questions and he always tells us to look it up ourselves. He is a teacher for a reason, and it is to help us students learn. If we wanted to always look things up we would not be in class! It was a really pain to always hear the same response if we didn't know the answer to a question.

28. Other comments:
Thanks for everything Kara! Have a good summer
kara was really helpful and did all she could to improve our lab's writing of lab reports. she made herself available to students, and was very flexible.
I felt that Alex should not have even been in the class. I could read the book and do all the tests on my own.
