Comment :
Interesting class, definitely not what I was expecting when I enrolled in it though. Labs weren't bad. Not difficult and not too time consuming. Dr. Laberge is a really intelligent and helpful person even if his lecture style isn't the most exciting.

Comment :
I thought this class would be super interesting, but it ended up being mostly on prehistoric fish (yawn). LaBerge reads his notes right off the slide in a very quiet monotonous voice, which makes it difficult to pay attention. Even labs weren't nearly as exciting as I thought they would be. However, Leslie is great! Don't bother buying the textbook, everything is right off of the lecture slides.

Prof MacDonald was a joke!! Study Leslie's lab manual for midterm and final and you'll be fine for the exams. Lots of marine/rodents in lab, and not a lot of variety. Midterm doesn't change much year to year

Dr. Bernier teaches comparative animal physiology (Zoo*3200), which this person's description of the course accurately describes. It should just not be under the zoo*2090 heading.

If prof McDonald is still teaching this class... then god save your soul. I managed to get an A, but it was all self-taught. The prof is useless.

Dr. Bernier has been teaching this course for at least 10 years. In fall 2010 he decided to challenge his students for a change (as it used to be a bird course). The class average on the midterm was less than 50. The lab class average was about a 70. The final was just as hard as the midterm.

If McDonald is your professor, then be prepared. I did not like his teaching method, it was all over the place. Sometimes I was not sure if I knew what he was doing. If Leslie still instructs the labs, you will enjoy it, she is great. I finished with a mid 70 through intense studying. Although it is Vertebrate Structure and Function, I feel like we concentrated more on fish compared to everything else.
