Approximately 60% will be derived from the Parham textbook and 10% from the textbook Immunobiology: The Immune System in Health and Disease, 7th Edition, by Janeway, Garland Science (not a required text). The remaining 30% will be from reviews, primary literature, newspapers, web sites, movies, you name it.
Students may access course information and policies via the web site by logging in with their netid and AD password. All Power Point lectures will be available for download by 5pm the day before each lecture.
Three exams will be given, each worth ~33.3% of your grade. The final exam will be based on the last third of the course. Previous exams, some with and without answers, will be posted for your use (except final exams). Approximate course grade distribution will be 40% A, 40% B, 20% C. Student's who clearly do not try, as evidenced by exam scores that are well below average and outside a Gaussian distribution, may receive a D or F. Plus and Minus grades will be given.
