This class is terrible. Its just a matter of memorizing the taxonomy and shrooms are not as much fun as I thought they would be. The labs are irritating and really dont serve a purpose.

If you like taxonomy this is the class for you. The majority of the class is spent learning the differences between the various taxonomic groups. There is a 3hr lab once a week, though some experiments require that you check on them every few days. For a number of the labs you are free to complete them when you want as the lab is open during the day. The marks come from one midterm, one final, a lab book and a short paper.
