I wish all courses were like this! I took it DE. Prof. Marcone is half of what makes the course so good. He does everything he can to give students the highest mark possible. There's only two assignments and two online discussions. And the final. I'm a HUGE procrastinator and didn't start the assignments or conferences until the last minute and still managed to get 90s and 100 on them. VERY easy to do well in, plus I found the material really interesting. Because of this course (and Massimo!), I'm definitely thinking of switching into the Food Science major.

Marcone is hilarious, always sending these emails all the time. Never had a prof that cared so much about the course and his students, its like it hurts him if one of his students isn't motivated or gets a low mark. Like any online course, easy to fall behind. No midterms mean you have to be motivated to keep up yourself. Just 2 discussions, 2 assignments all very easy and fairly marked by the TAs, if you do the effort youre going to get 90-100 on them. Is a bird course, but at least its a slightly interesting bird course. Took it DE.

Great course! really easy to do well in this course. You can probably get by without the textbook. I used my textbook a little bit but most of the info can be found on the internet. The top 25 people who comment on the math discussion board will get an extra 5%, I would really suggest trying to aim for this extra percent. If can really boost your mark and it's really not hard if you comment maybe once a week or so. As long as you do the assignments/ posts and the weekly math, you will do amazing in this course

Easy to bullshit. I hardly did anything all semester, yet still pulled off a good mark. It's the most uninteresting course out there, though.

This course is easy. There are two assignments and two discussion topics. The evaluations are easy enough, they require work, of course, but the professor and TAs are really nice and mark fairly. If you make enough posts you can get a 100 at discussion posts. The professor tells you about the final exam and what to study. (He does email ALOT though)

I don't understand why everyone likes this class so much. I'm taking it now and I've never hated a course so much in my life... I find it difficult, and the courseload is INSANE (especially for a DE course, I've NEVER seen it like this before). It's incredibly overwhelming, I don't think I'll stay in this class for very much longer. Avoid this if you're looking for an easy elective. It's not interesting, and not fun.

Single-handledly the easiest course at Guelph. Very interesting topics, workload is perfect, professor was amazing, the TA actually cared about helping students. Came out of the class with new insight into the food we eat and the process involved to get it to our table.
