BIO 205 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Respected by students" "Clear grading criteria" "Tests are tough"

He gives you fill-in-the-blank notes! that was awesome! The tests are hard just because there is a lot of information to retain. The lectures are easy going and always listen for the extra credit questions.

ANTH 435 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

You're going to have to work to get an A, but it's definitely do-able. There are tests every week, but if you do the workbooks for each chapter you'll be fine. The test/quiz questions come right from the workbook. You literally have every single question that could possibly be on the test.

DO THE STUDY GUIDES AND STUDY THE STUDY GUIDES. He is a pretty funny guy and a pretty interesting class. You must study and commit at least 2=3 days prior to the exams to study(: Not bad at all!

BIO205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Lecture isn't mandatory but it does help and it's not too boring. He tries to make things more interesting with pictures and jokes.DO THE STUDY GUIDES at the end of the notes and you will be fine. The exams are based on the study guides. Not a hard class just requires some memorization. 3 midterms, weekly quizzes and in class assignments in the lab

Do the study guides. Do the study guides. Do the study guides. Everything you will be tested on is from the study guides. There are no secrets: do the study guides. A little monotonous at times, but let's be honest, it isn't easy getting stoked about robust australopithecines.

ANTH 435 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Books are a must- multiple study guides for one quiz (20 questions 40 points every thursday); 2 midterm/1 final- each question worth 5 points each. STUDY STUDY STUDY THE STUDY GUIDES and you should do okay. Funny guy, kinda monotoned, willing to help if you askk for it

ANTH 435 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Whatta bunch of whiners. Nice teacher, helpful notes and gives workbooks. Sorry, you have to study constantly in order to get a good grade in the class. Seriously, all the complainers should seriously think of dropping out of college. Save your money and go get a low skill job because college is clearly too demanding for some people's work ethic.

Professor Young Owl makes anatomy a little more interesting!Quiz every Friday and they are very easy if you study his ILN notes. 2 midterms and 1 final, which are not that bad if you study his notes. I would recommend taking his class!Study really hard for labs!

2 midterms and a final worth 500 pts each. the class is difficult and requires plenty of studying and memorization. Interactive lecture notes are a must (pretty much where his exams come from) but book is also helpful.

This class is really interesting. I loved his lectures. He have the most random stories, but somehow he tries to connect it with whatever he's talking about. He is the nicest science lecture professor I've ever had! His exams? Easy- Moderate if you study. He gives out the no. of questions per body system. Quizzes? Easy. TAKE HIM!!!
