BIOL1111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Wasn't organized. The syllabus was from the previous semester, and he made significant changes, making it hard to know what was going on. This class was the most random class ever. The tests were on things barely covered or not covered in class. Nice guy, but I wouldn't recommend him as a prof, at least not for FunGen.

Biol2111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him for Cellular Biology. Honestly, his was the only class I enjoyed going to this semester. He has strong views about certain topics, but so what? We're here to learn all aspects of life, not just the sugar coated version you've been given up until now. He likes to challenge people, and comes off as offensive. Highly entertaining.

Do not take PZ Myers if you have another choice. Unless you are fantastic at Biology already, you will not do well. I already had taken AP Bio and gotten A's and loved Bio, his class is not Intro level at all. Goes through things way to quickly, teaches at one level and tests on another. Not a good teacher.

The course is very interesting. Prof Myers is is heavily engaged in anti-creationism which is great, but he is apparently 'too important' to substantively engage with students even in office hours. Luckily the material isn't too challenging but he seems lazy about writing tests and informing us what's in them.

Pz myers is awesome! He's really famous so its like having a celebrity in class! He's up there on the news with Richard Dawkins and Jerry Coyne, although he hasn't written a book his comments are usually heard...that being said, he is always busy but his stuff isn't hard so long you pay attention.

Alright this guy is sweet as hell, frank as hell and very good with words. He runs a popular blog and has been featured on several documentaries and gives talks everywhere. He teaches really well, and tries to be as clear as possible...is also tolerant of stupid questions, unless they border the insane.

PZ Myers, very famous...has made numerous appearances everywhere, especially on the evolution vs creationism thing. Great professor, I like him...he is not easy though.

Interesting character. Very into anti-creationism. He can teach the course so that you want to learn. Not too hard, not too easy. One thing is he is always busy, always. Very hard to find him for office hours. Otherwise, if you are a liberal person, you will like this prof. If you are conservative, you will want to strangle him in the first week.

Ok Professor Myers (better known as PZ Myers)is an excellent scientist. He is always associated with names such as Richard Dawkins, and has featured in many documentaries, if you even type his name on youtube you'd see how popular he is. That said, he is an excellent scientist & professor...yet he is really busy, all the time.
