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.

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.

Very knowledgeable, and very opinionated. His lectures + power points are clear and helpful. He thoroughly explains the material, but never thoroughly explains whats on the test. He likes to throw in stuff from the readings to make sure you've been reading. Less approachable than most profs I'd say.

His forte seems to be explaining topics from the top-> down. Also, he's great at anwsering questions, he never seems to have trouble seeing what the question is like many other professors. But, he always seems rushed and doesn't appear to enjoy talking to students.

Myers is very smart and knows what he's talking about--a good lecturer but tends to talk too fast to write it all down. Tests can be really hard--I thought they were a little unfair at times--not addressing the things that he said they would. Nice guy
