BSC2094 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Awesome Professor. Must take!! Always willing to help, simplifies the subject, reasonable, evident he wants his students to succeed, entertaining, easy to listen to, inspires students to be better. This is college, so yes-you have to study, but if you do, you will get a good grade. Also, promotes health and exercise and makes practical application

BSC 1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Rumsey is an amazing professor! He is extremely knowledgeable, reasonable, and down-to-earth. Always willing to help through whatever means necessary, as long as you hold up your end of the bargain by being a responsible student. My only regret is that I can't take him for all my science courses!

BSC 2094C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor John is super, if you really want to learn and obtain a good grade, I recommend him. I obtained B and I know I could get an A but I didn’t put 100% in the class. So if you will give your best, you won’t regret by taking him. Dedicate time to the class and you will be happy at the end.

This professor is knows A&P. He tells stories that help you relate to the subject. His exams are not easy. You need to know how each system works. Lab practical was timed at 45sec per 2 questions. Several papers due by end of semester and contribute to learning and perks up your grade. Down to earth and supportive. No slackers.

Professor Rumsey is great. He lends a lot of professional insigt into the material and really helps to paint a clear picture. His lecture notes can be printed off internet and he gives comprehensive reviews prior to tests. The material is tough, but an A is definitely manageable.

I took Rumsey for Anatomy 1 and 2. He is a great professor, the work is not easy.. but you can get an A. Print the power points, take notes, record the reviews, come to class and lab and you will do good. He tells you what you need to do and what to study, listen to him. He will TELL you the short answer questions for every test.Take this professor

You will always leave early. He will let you go but stay until everyone has had a chance to talk to him if they have questions.. Also, he's fun to look at ;) I took his class for A&P I and II. I wish he taught Micro, I would take him again and again!!

The teacher is a great instructor. He tells stories to relate the information to you in a way you will remember. He is exasperated if you don't know your material and lets you know that this is competitive and you need to study. He tells you what to study for and if you don't pass you didn't make the effort.

BSC2093 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Let me tell you something. This class is not easy at all. I worl my butt off. And the lab exam, he only give you 1 minute per 3 question. Anatomy is a very hard class, and you have to study on your own. Prf. goes very fast. You will go home early every day.

Awsome professor. Need to study!! He will always help if YOU ASK FOR IT!!!. Took him for A&P2 and class was at least 85% returning students from A&P 1, that says it all. He will give you 75% review of what will be on the test, if you can record it, it will easy on you. Take good notes otherwise tape record class. Take him if you want to learn!!

3 test and a cummulative final,5 reaction paper and 2 lab practical exam. He is crystal clear what he expects from you and what will be in the test. Recommend you record reviews. He is an excellent professor. he may initially come accross intimidating and harsh but once you know him you will be glad you took his class. No regrets if you do!!!!!

Dr. Rumsey is by far the best professor I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. He truely cares for his students and is passonate about what he teaches. I learned so much! Anatomy classes are not the easiest because they have a bunch of material to cover, but he makes it easier to learn it. He is knowledgable and amusing. Take him!!! :)

This professor is one of the best I've ever had! He's always very clear about what's going to be on the test, and what you need to know. He's very understanding and is willing to work with you if you're struggling. He's not easy, unless you put the time in to work for it. I took him for a&p1 and a&p2, i highly recommend him.

Self learners & self motivated people. Its not easy but that he treats all as adults which is much appreciated. API(B) was great but APII(C) seemed like he was less interested & grumpy a lot. I didnt like his lectures on what we should or shouldnt be doing it was negative and demotivated me a bit. He does care about students and his job helpful

Dr. Rumsey is the best. Ignore any comments that he doesn't teach well. He moves quickly through the Power Points during lecture to keep the class length short, but if you pay attention and study the slides on your own then it's not hard to get an A. I didn't use the book much. He gives a good review before tests and as a plus is a really nice guy.
