FDNS 2100
Human Nutrition and Food
4****
Pros: Easy tests, as long as you go to class and study the notes. She also gives a lot of extra points throughout the semester for attendance and participation.
Cons: It's a lecture class so that means that you're in class with 300 other people, so one on one time isn't possible.

This is an easy class. It is not demanding. As long as you show up to class, pay attention, and take notes, you should get an A. The tests are not difficult at all. As long as you memorize your notes, you shouldn't see anything tricky.



The only thing that gave me and other students a little trouble was having to memorize a list of vitamins and minerals and their properties. Other than that, there is nothing hard about this course. I would recommend taking it and plus the information you learn about nutrition can prove useful if you watch what you eat.

Pros: No need to go to class
Cons: Doesn't post the lecture notes
Honestly the easiest class I've taken at UGA. There really is no need to go to this class. The semester I took it, there was a google doc that someone updated with all the notes. If you do go to class, she gives you extra credit but honestly you don't need it because the exams are super easy. A day or two before our test I would just go onto Koofers and look at old exams..probably 90% of the questions were the exact same. And for the ones that were different? You could use common sense to figure it out.

Pros: She gives extra credit for attendance and even gave us all extra credit after she decided not to give us the extra credit assignment. The tests are very fair and come directly from her lectures. The lectures are pretty interesting.
Cons: Sometimes the class can be kind of boring and it isn't very hands on. While it is nice not to have to write papers, the class didn't have any assignments to help my grade.
Fairly easy class if you study and take good notes. You will also learn a lot about nutrition and a wide variety of things about food.

Pros: Never had any homework. I found the class to be pretty interesting and Grossman was an excellent teacher. If you attended class (which she doesn't take, but does use as extra credit quite frequently), you would do fine on the test. She doesn't post her notes online, but she normally points out important info on each slide that you would need to know. As long as you study the notes before the exam, you can make an A. She drops a test and a lot of questions are recycled from old exams that are online.

Pros: She is a super sweet teacher and really cares about her students.
Cons: There are random attendance checks, but that doesn't matter because you HAVE to be in class to get notes anyway. She does not put notes online and gets made if anyone else posts them. She insists on you coming to hand write notes from TAs if you miss anything. The tests are also pretty hard, you have a ton of info packed into each one. The material is pretty boring, and this is not quite the easy class I expected.

Pros: I LOVE Dr. Grossman!!

She is the best professor I have encountered. She is so chill and relaxed. The tests are pretty straight forward, just study her lecture notes thoroughly and you are fine. This class was just amazing. I TOTALLY recommend her for FDNS 2100!!
Cons: None really. she does not provide power point slides on elc, but just pay attention to her lectures and copy down the power point slides during lecture and you're good to go.
Take her for sure.

Pros: She's a good teacher. Interesting information.
Cons: She goes through lecture during class but she doesn't always print out the notes or post powerpoints so bring your laptop to type notes faster.
She updates ELC often and gives extra credit for attendance and a food safety opportunity (which is very easy). She teaches well and her guest speakers are actually very entertaining. Great class to recommend.

Pros: So sweet, keeps the class interesting with videos, guest speakers, and fill n the blank worksheets! Also let's you know what to focus on for tests.
Cons: KNOW you vitamin and mineral sheets for the test. Some test questions are nit picky, but over-all not too hard.



Attendance policy, be in class to take notes.
Love her, easy A if you study all of your notes taken in class.

Pros: Posts her old test for you to study from and about 50% of the questions come from those. Offers extra credit attendance points throughout the semester.
Cons: Has 2 vitamin and mineral sheets that you have to memorize. That's probably the hardest thing of the whole class. Sometimes the lectures can be pretty boring!
Nice lady! She's very straight forward and easy going.

Pros: Test material comes straight from lecture and her previous tests provided by her on eLC
Cons: Lecture was sometimes boring and there were random attendance grades
Overall, it was a great class and even if you didn't pay attention to a single lecture, as long as you studied the notes and previous tests, you could get an A on the exams.

Cons: Honestly, I cannot think of anything bad about this class
