Review #1 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
Waldrop is a great instructor for Biochem! If you must take Biochem, take with Waldrop. In his lecture, he gives many examples of medical relativeness which is great for pre-med students. He tells you what will be on the test and what will not be on the test. only 3 exams! each 50 multiple choice. he provides his lecture notes on moodle! take him

Review #2 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
Dr. Waldrop is a funny guy, but I did not benefit from this course. I made A's in both organics and the lab (prerequisites for the course), an A in cell bio (which has a lot of biochem), but managed to make my first C in 4087. There are 3 tests with 50 multiple choice questions (including the final). Tests 2 and 3 are cumulative yet they are weighted the same as test 1. The notes are in word documents or PDFs posted on Moodle. At the end of the semester I had somewhere around 700 pages of notes filled with clusters of pathways, structures, etc. Intimidating. I personally prefer power points because I find them easier to study from. I do not recommend waiting to study the weekend before the test. You will be stressed, unless you're really good at cramming for exams. Perks: if you prefer multiple choice to fill in the blank and short answer if you prefer to not buy a textbook (not required), the notes are what's important

Review #3 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
Waldrop won't take any crap from his students, but he knows what he's talking about and is always available after class to answer questions or explain something again. Exams are all multiple choice, and he doesn't try to confuse you. Also, he posts all the notes up on Moodle, making it easy to listen to lecture instead of madly scribbling for two hours. One of the best teachers I've had at LSU.

Review #4 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
Waldrop is a great teacher, and he always ties his lecture in to medicine. You don't need the textbook either. His notes are a combo of several texts, including the LSU Med School one. BUT you have to study a lot for his tests. I'm talking about studying every f*cking day. The second test is the hardest and the one that screwed me over. His tests are detailed and require that you understand all the details of said mechanisms.

Review #5 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
Waldrop is AWESOME. Can be a little rude, but really a great teacher. Don't have to buy a book, he posts all lecture notes on moodle. GO TO CLASS! Three tests, no other grades. He says its all cumulative, but it's not really. Rumor is he curves at the end to get 20% A's.

Review #6 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
This class was incredible. Not only was it important MCAT information and helpful for other biologies, but it was very interesting and the tests were straight from the notes, no book! I could have made an A if I would have studied more.

Waldrop was absolutely wonderful, one of the best teachers I've had. He makes it easy to pay attention, and for the most part lets you know what to study. Beware of Shih though.

Review #13 / Course: BIOL 4087 / Instructor: WALDROP G
This class contained a lot of the same information as other upper level biologies, making it painfully boring. On top of that, Waldrop is only there to crack BAD jokes and try to get people to laugh at him. He's not concerned with students learning.

Dr. Waldrop is a GREAT Professor who truly helps his students, unfortunately he didn't teach the entire class. Shih taught the second half, and he is a very nice man, but get ready for the tests because they aren't nearly as fair as he says.

Grover Waldrop was the best teacher I've had so far at LSU. He made class interesting with many clinical references, and his sense of humor helped too. Great teacher and class, but be prepared to work for your A!

Waldrop is one of the most animated teachers I've had at LSU.He may seem rude at first but he's really a great guy.He gets the information across really well.All PreMed students should take Waldrop because he uses clinical correlations in his lecture
