"Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

Tough class. Really have to read everything on your own. He is very full of himself. Sometimes he acts like he doesn't have time for students.

Bio221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

You need to go to lecture and read/outline every chapter in order to be prepared for his exams. No powerpoint slides provided or study guides. You're on your own for highlighting important ideas. Tests are short answer, fill in the blank (no wordbank) and some multiple choice. Lab is easy for this course.

biol426 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I wish there was a rating option for "Annoyingness" because Zimmer would get a 5/5. But he is an alright teacher. Just really full of himself and takes himself way too seriously. I get really sick of him trying to be hip by calling everyone "Dude."

BIO101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Zimmer is my favorite professor. I've had him for a couple of classes. What I really like about him is that he will simplify the complex concepts and makes sure you understand the material. He seems relatively young but he knows a lot. & when he is asked a question he doesn't know, he'll tell you he doesn't know, i like that.
