Prof Brinn is really good. If you have some interest in marine life, def take this class. 3 exams (last one is optional), couple discussions, and a group project which was very easy. If taken with the lab, its even easier... also u don't have to come to class, just come on discussion and exam days.

Dr. Brinn is an amazing professor! He keeps class extremely interesting with his jokes and definitely helps you understand class content. There are 3 exams total but the 3rd is optional if you are content with your first 2 exam grades and a presentation and article discussions throughout the semester. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM :)

Dr. Brinn is a good professor overall very knowledgeable about Biology had for first half of semester for Bio II. Tests came straight from review which he gave prior to each test. Made class interesting even though his jokes were corny at times.

Dr. Brinn is a friendly guy one-on-one, even if he does crack jokes at students in lecture. He was helpful going over old exams during office hours. My only gripe was that he hinted repeatedly at a curve and then there was none. I suspect the co-teacher played a role in that decision. No curves on any of the exams or grades.

Richard Brinn is a great professor. His lectures are very engaging. The knowledge that you will receive in his PCB4805 Endocrinology class is priceless, especially if you are a future medical student. He organizes group discussions of the fascinating scientific articles which helps you to build the reasoning required to excel on the MCAT.

Richard is a really good teacher. I had him for Intro to Marine Bio, and Prior to taking his class I didnt really have an interest in the subject, but now, I literally find myself understanding so much more around me! I totally recommend him as a teacher! (Oh! and please dont wait til the last minute to read those discussions! He will call you out)

Great teacher knowledgeable and always willing to clarify. As long as you do your job of coming to class you will do very well. He has an interesting and i think better approach to teaching bc he continually interacts with the class so we actually know what the heck hes talking about. To endocrinology and animal physiology and both were excellent

Dr. Brinn is a great professor. Dont have to attend class, but I suggest you do and record his lectures. His exams are essays, but if he asks if you want mc, DO NOT say yes b/c theyre not the typical ones. Have a couple of article discussions, which are easy; and theres a presentation that you should not leave to the last minute. No book needed.

Great class to take whether you are a science major or not. Dr. Brinn is a great professor you will never get bored in his class. Although he does not take attendance you should not miss class. Exams are essay format so you need to know your stuff. Overall you will truly learn about animal physiology. I highly recommend this class.

Prof. Brinn is the BEST!!!! The material is not easy, of course it's endocrinology!!! But he makes it as easy and enjoyable as possible...attendance is not mandatory but if you want to do well, as in every class, it will help if you do go to class. I would take any class with him, he is extremely fair, you dont get an A if you really dont study

Brinn teaches directly from power points which are all really long and have a lot of information. Although his tests are short (about 20 questions or less) his "reviews" don't help and you never really know what to study. attendance not mandatory but if you want to pass you should go to EVERY class! its not pie but if you try you can do it

Excellent professor. Passionate, intellectual, yet not nerdy. Great class whether this class is related to your major or not. Will be required to learn phylum and class of various organisms and learn the abiotic factors of the marine world.
