Dr.Otto is a awesome. If you make the dedication to get up at 7:30 to attend his lecture you will do well. Study a week before the exam. Review all the powerpoints and skim the questions on mastering a&p and the textbook, but mostly the powerpoints. Dr. Otto is by far the best biology professor at mason.

Prof Otto is such an incredible teacher. His lectures are concise. His extra powerpoint reviews show you the same material from a different perspective so you REALLY get it. Attend class, record it. Review the recordings again with the notes and power points in front of you. IF you don't get an A then you didn't do the work. (but it's a LOT)

Excellent professor, notes are great, very active. Must take the time to study and review information. Doing good in lab will definitely help your grade.

Dr. Otto is the most humble professor at Mason. His teaching is exciting, and he makes things easier to understand. But the best thing I enjoyed about his class was his character...he really just cares about the students, nothing else! He's not in it for the game, or to look good in front of faculty, he's just interested in being a good professor.

Dr.Otto is the best professor u can ever ask for. His lectures and expectations are clear. He doesnt give partial credits in test, but his tests are not that hard. Study and do the problems in his study guide and ull be fine.

The ratings are pointless, her really isn't a great professor. His lab TAs were the worst! If you can get Peggy for Lab she's one of the best. Otto doesn't give partial credit!

Awesome professor. Although his lecture is at 7:30 in the morning, it is much more doable than the other Anatomy professors lectures. He really makes the subject interesting and he is pleasant to talk to. Tests were hard, but passable. If you use the book/ the review questions you should be okay.

He is an amazing professor, loved his class. Take his class and you will learn a lot. His ppts are good and easy to understand but his exams are VERY VERY HARD. Study way hard if u want good grades. The lab is ewww, not interesting. Hated flies, u can definitely fake the data, POINTLESS.

Dr. Otto is a great professor. He knows the material and explains it very clearly. He is also one of the nicest people I have ever met. Exams are not easy, but A is possible if you know what you are doing.

Nicest and most helpful professor. Really cares for this students. Tests are tricky but if you know the material they are completely doable. Fun class overall.

He is a really helpful professor. His power-points are all you need to get a B in his class without any problems. So, getting an A is not impossible :D

Wonderful guy. He really cares about his students and wants you to do well. He is always in class early and stays late to answer questions about lecture, lab, or just general questions that you think he would have the answer to. I adore him. Take his class! Exams are long but easy if you know what you're doing.

One of the best professors I have ever had by far at mason. Hes very approachable, even very early in the morning. Highly recommended for both Anatomy and Genetics.

Recording the lectures is helpful while studying. Show up to class or you'll miss pop iclicker quizzes. Lab can really boost up your grade if you do the work. He's really nice and willing to help you if you just ask. This class can be difficult if you don't keep up with it.

excellent proffesor! He is very nice, he always answers all your questions, and he always repeats everything again and again until you completely understand. His power points are awesome. the most important info are on those slides (i study from them and not from the book for my last two exams and I got better grades)I definetly recommend him n_n
