This was a good course. It was not easy, but it was good. I would note that getting the textbook would have been helpful even though it is optional. I'm glad I took this course. One comment would be to emphasize the utility of the textbook and of supplementary materials early on. I struggled a bit until I started reading some of the references they listed.

I liked this course very much. The homework is very challenging and interesting. When you pass this course you feel confident that you will be able to write a bioelectic simulator if you have to. I took this course the first time it was offered and the was something that could be better but all in all an excellent course.

I only completed part A of the course - so please keep that in mind. Dr. Coke Barr is a very nice man and a good professor, and he'll take you on an intuitive journey through the amazing world of bioelectricity. You can take only part A - where you'll be evaluated for your understanding of the concepts - or you can take also part B - which involves math and calculations. After week 4, the exercises in part B got hard and demanded more time to complete than I could spare. Granted, the professor helps you every week by publishing hints on how to solve them, but those are sometimes ineffective because you can get the units wrong and then you spend days going in circles just because you forgot a zero. So I quit that part, but I still thought it was a great course, totally worth taking.
