Dr. Erwin is an excellent teacher. He is more than willing to give you help outside of class. You definitely need to read the textbook and take detailed notes on it. He gives an open notebook quiz for the chapters he covers before class. It's EASY. You just need to do the work for it. Study your notes for the exam!

Dr. Erwin is a great teacher. His tests are hard and challenge your understanding of the material. He has a great personality and makes lecture interesting. To pass his class simply read the book, attend lecture, and do the work. Plus, he's a great looking man, so you won't get bored looking at him. :D

He is a cool guy and expects you to read the chapters before attending class. It is very important that you do because there will be quizzes in the begin of every class. Be sure to ask questions if you have them and do the online work he assigns, because they are worth bonus points on test. It's a lot of reading and you take your own notes. :)

Read the chapters and take notes very detailed and long. Quiz comes before the lecture. Not a clear understanding of what he wants. He just throws you out there to do everything with no instructions pretty much. Teach yourself. Doesn't post PowerPoints to study from. Dont Take unless you have no other option. !! BEWARE!!

If you take his class, be prepared to take extensive notes and do a lot of out of class reading. That being said, he is a great teacher and explains everything in class. I had to work my butt off to get an A, but when it came to the final I felt as if I had learned enough to hardly spend any time studying for it.

I've never been so happy to receive a "C" average before this class. You honestly have to spend a few hours before each class on writing detailed notes. Make sure you know the chapter and come prepared with questions. He likes to see students learn and apply the material.

He is very helpful with deadlines, but not too easy. He makes you work for your grade, and if you're trying hard he'll be happy to help you. His tests are straight frm the book, but the book's chps are long, so take LOTS of notes for the quizes. This class requires study time outside of hw, and labs. Do not take with hard classes.

Wow. I copied half of the book into my notes. Completely pointless. Every class, we had a quiz over our notes - before the lecture. The tests were insanely hard, and I never knew what to study. Also throughout the semester we never got any tests or quizzes back. DO NOT TAKE!

Do not take him! Quizzes BEFORE the lecture! Will answer a question if you have it but is not clear. In lab always has comments about not wanting to be there and having other things to do. Cool guy but not a good teacher.

DO NOT TAKE HIM! He's a cool guy but terrible teacher! He gives lectures AFTER the quizzes for that chapter. Quizzes every class. Labs are easy but dont expect them back to study for the final! Or even a quick grading! His excuse for being hard is "its college, what did you expect", NOT COOL! Tests are impossible to pass! Will never take him again!

STUPID HARD. Don't take him unless you absolutely HAVE to. You teach yourself everything & tests are ridiculous. He takes random statements from the chps & asks questions on that! I LOVE HIM, HATE his class. It's impossible to pass the tests, quizzes are easy if yu take EXTREMELY detailed notes from the chps. He teaches AFTER quizzes & very briefly

He is the coolest professor at GGC but he is also the hardest I've ever had. Half of my class dropped during midterms and some changed their majors because of him. If you are really in it 100%, he won't fail you but be ready to work your butt off. When taking notes from the book, take good notes because that is your only study guide.

He comes across as a laid back guy, but does not teach at all. He does not give study guides for tests, you have a chapter quiz almost every class, he is not lenient at all. If you are looking for an easy A or even B don't bother. You pretty much do end up copying the whole textbook in your notes.

If you like biology like me then Dr. Erwin is the way to go. So long as you take notes on the chapters every night and listen in class you're fine. But if you want an easy A or if Bio is a struggle for you then Don't take his class. There is a lot of work but it's not difficult.

Doctor Erwin is very chilled and laid back. A quiz on each chapter that is open notes at the beginning of each class. Picky details from chapters too! If you stay for the powerpoint, you might learn something, but what's the point when you write the chapter down before class even begins. No study guides. No strict syllabus. Unorganized.
