"Tests are tough" "Lectures are long"

Honestly, I have no idea how Jeffrey is getting all of these good reviews. He's boring and unclear. He stands in front of the room, talks, babbles and brags instead of going over information thoroughly. His tests are crazy hard in my opinion. Some questions are easy but most are drawn from little side comments he makes about the material. Avoid!

"Would take again" "Hilarious" "Amazing lectures"

There are many great professors in the Bio deparment, and Professor Jeffrey is possibly the best out of them. He's one of oldest professors, but has a great humor and personality about him. He has 3 major tests and they are all lecture based. The textbook wasn't used much at all if for only additioanl clarity. Lab with him is also very relaxed, we had plenty of time to study on our own. Lab quizzes were relatively easy recall and memorization.

Wonderful prof who cares about and really has an interest in his students. Material is hard no matter who you take. Jeffery does a fantastic job at relaying accurate info and making sure you know what is testable. Show up for class, take notes, take his suggestions on study habits and review your notes DAILY-don't procrastinate and you'll earn an A

Bio 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Professor Jeffrey is far and away the best professor I've ever had. He has a master's degree from Harvard and is one of the smartest individuals I've ever met. I talked to him in his office for hours about everything I could think of, from astrophysics to religion to anatomy & physiology to horse racing. He was one of HACC's first great professors.

Professor Jeffrey is an awesome professor!! He is very funny and keeps you interested throughout the class! Lots of note taking, and offers bonus! The Tests are hard, usually all fill in the blank and matching, but if you study you will pass! Defiantly recommend him!

Easily the best professor that I've had so far. Lots of material to know for tests and quizzes, but he gives you all the information you need to know. It's just a matter of how hard and effectively you study

Professor Jeffrey is a great educator. He took his time learning the students' names and is willing to help any students who need the help. Tests aren't the easiest, but doable if you study the material. Most of the test materials are from lecture, so don't miss the class

The information is hard, Jeffrey tries to make it easy to understand. If you REALLY study you will do well. I got an A in the class, but it is not a grade that is handed to you, you have to earn it. I took him for lab and lecture. STUDY STUDY STUDY!

Jeffrey is incredibly nice and caring. He gets to know each student and will take the time to help you if you need it. But the class is not easy, you need to study and prepare for each test weeks in advance (they are fill in the blanks) and attend class, because the questions are only from lecture.Lab is flexible but the quizzes are oral. Not easy

Professor Jeffrey is one of the best professors I have had at HACC! Very kind and caring about his students. I have rated him easy, but difficulty is subjective. I had the time to spend hours a day studying. He makes an effort to learn every student's name. By the second class he was calling students by their first name. Top notch professor!

He is an absolutlely amazing professor!! Explains everything in great detail and provides various analogies so everyone understands the material. Tests are difficult and require studying which is expected since it is a anatomy and physiology course. Would recommend him to everyone! Only wish he also taught anatomy and physiology 2

He is a really great guy, and a good professor, but let's be honest. His tests are HARD! Unless you are willing to put aside at least 1 or 2 hours a NIGHT to study for this class, you won't do well. DO NOT take this class if you are taking more than 12 credits! There is no word bank and the test is fill in the blank so make sure you know your stuff

very interesting man, and great instructor. very good at keeping you engaged. he does give you the grade you deserve, the more effort you put in the better the grade. not an easy course, but ask him how to study and he will give you the best stratagies. he loves to use analagies to understand the context. highly advised to take his course.

Awesome prof in the pre-nursing program who tells stories with direct clinical application. He explained how to know if your unconscious patient was having trouble breathing by looking at the muscles in their neck--because they are muscles a person uses when they can't breathe and have to work hard to inhale. Amazing. This will be very useful!
