"Big time extra credit" "Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Dr. Allison is a very confusing teacher. His notes are complicated and his test seem to go a little off topic. HOWEVER you WILL pass this class. You will feel lost but you WILL ace the class. If he sees you care about you grade, he will care. All of his test will have study guides. He WILL give you a free 100 on at least one test and one quiz.

"There for you" "Would take again" "Participation matters"

Dr. Allison loves students who genuinely appreciate the body and have a genuine interest in a medical profession. I WOULD NOT recommend this class to someone looking to just get credit. BUT if you love the human body and want to learn how it works, take Dr. Allison. He has an amazing amount of knowledge and is extremely helpful if you ask.

Do not take his class. He is not a good instructor. U will not learn what u need to know. u will prob make an A, but then once u get into the program u are wanting u might fail out bc u learned nothing in ur A&Ps.

Took his class over summer 1. He is a great teacher and very passionate about his subject, not to mention he's absolutely adorable. He tends to get side tracked & a little forgetful at times, but overall he was awesome. Very helpful & did everything he could to help you make an A! :) definitely recommend him!

Absolutely loved his class. He can tend to get sidetracked and forget when your supposed to have a test. But he will do everything he can to help you get an A. He's very knowledgeable and passionate about about the subject and doesn't want to see you fail. I got an easy A. He will go over the review multiple times and answer any questions you have.

Allison seemed like an okay professor the first day but now he has become very lost. He fails to remember what we did two days ago and is constantly changing the days we take tests. And when you get your grade back, what was supposed to be a extra credit 10 points becomes a 100 point lab test.I would never take if i knew. He should not be a teacher

biol2402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

In the last week and 3 days of the semester we have had 6 tests, 1 quiz, and one paper to write. He is disorganized, talks too much off subject, so that gets you behind. If you are not a chemistry major or going into nursing, DON'T take him. He means well, but I think its time for him to retire!!

Biolo2401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Made my semester miserable. Do not take his class. He told us our test would be over the ear and we show up to class and it was over the eye. Very scattered and not helpful at all. He made the class get behind and we all had to write 7 papers in the last two weeks while studying for the last test plus the final.

If you are not going into nursing, don't bother taking him. He goes off on tangents unrelated to task at hand. Barely uses book, does his own thing. However he is very nice and trys to help.

He's inconsistenet with materials and contradicts whether the book is a reliable source. A lot of "critical thinking" on tests that may or may not be over material covered.

he is a great instructor who knows his subject.He is ready and willign to help,just ask. He give review,but he expect you to use the review as a guidline when studing for the test(thats why you are a student), and if you do, you will make a good grade. I take him for both A&P I ,II.made As in both. I recomend.

Dr.Allison is super amazing! He absolutely loves teaching and he enjoys his students equally. If your a single mom or just out of high school trying to transition and adjust, this is your professor. he will totally work w/you & your schedule. He wants ALL his students to suceed, thats even his motto. I took him for both a&p 1&2 & made a "B" in both

DO NOT take him! He is all over the place and almost impossible to follow. His tests are like the reviews he gives (sort of, but not really). He knows his material, but he doesn't know how to teach it. He is too old and needs to retire! I don't think I have learned anything from his class!

Extremely nice teacher. He loves what he is teaching and it shows. As long as you read the chapters, take notes, attend class and study you should do fine. I made an "A" in both of his A&P classes. Very sweet man and cares about his students and teachers future nurses what to look for in their patients.
