Bio255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great prof who clearly loves working with students and is passionate about the subject matter. Covers a lot of material in a short amount of time (5 exams per sem) and moves very quickly in lecture. Lab was great. Subject matter is mostly memorization so study hard cause most tests are fill in the blank and diagrams. Difficult, but worth-while!

BIO152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Carlson is a very fun professor and is funny in lecture, but can be a bit confusing. His lectures are kind of disorganized so it can be hard to follow sometimes. He is a great lab professor. His tests can be difficult, but he is willing to answer questions.

His arrogance makes him difficult to approach and he's not a very nice person, but he's an OK teacher as far as getting the info across.

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

First he wins you over with coffee at 8 am (physiology) and his great sense of humor. then he beats you down with his 6 page long, completely fill in the blank/essay/explain-this-process-in-detail-and-if-you- miss-one-keyword-the-whole- thing-is-wrong tests. not to be trusted. he will get you. i got the worst grade of my life in human phys w/him.

You will work in the class and may not receive the grade you're used to. However, if you do put the work in, you'll come out with a lot of information.

Physiology Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Carlson is awesome. For an 8:00 class, it can be tough to keep up, but he knows it and so he supplies the coffee. He challenges the class according to what he believes the students are capable of. Great sense of humor and a lot of fun.

He talks so fast! He was a little overwhelming for first semester bio, but he is good with asking if people have questions. His unit wasn't that difficult.
