Biol 1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Very heavy accent, makes it hard to understand and follow. He puts up practice exam questions that are about 80% of the real exam, so study those. You will have to read the book or dont expect to pass. I got lucky to pass with a B.

BIO1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hard to understand, makes things so boring, no help at all, but if you read and study the book very carefully you will pass.

Bio1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He expected students to have a complete mastery of concepts from reading the book alone and belittled anyone for asking questions. He told our class that we should study for 5 hours a day to pass his course! For lab tests he would stand you in front of the class and ask you made up questions on the spot about labs. Very hard/unhelpful teacher!!!

BIOL1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

You need to read the book. If you read your chapter prior to lecture you can get things clarified easily. If you are lazy and expecting him to hand out a mock exam for your test dont bother with this class. I enjoyed this class, dont have qualms about asking him to repeat himself if his accent got in the way, but I worked hard for my A

BIOL2304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If youre really smart youll be fine; but if youre not, dont take this class. He doesnt help much. He goes through every single thing in text book but very few will be on the test. And, I know it's mean but his accent is very confusing. He likes to say "on the other hand" and everytime he said "enzyme" everyone in my class just cracked the hell up.

biol1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

i agree that this is college and u have to be on ur own but it could be so much better if professor could help. he doesnt help at all. all he cares about is get the syllabus done. and hes very boring. while i suck at science and have difficulty listening to English, his teaching method and heavy accent really didnt help. shoulda dropped this class.

biol2406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Not to be mean, but he's very boring. He's like an audio book, just kind of goes through the whole thing on the book, doesn't know how to emphasize the important things and skip the unimportant. He talks a lot about a bunch of things but very few will be on the test. And he has the most confusing accent I've ever seen in my life.

Bio1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Thick accent and he's hard to understand. His lectures cover content that he doesn't put on tests and he speaks way too fast in his lectures to take good notes. So far, this is the ONLY class I've scored less than a B in. I have to take another biology class and I'm thrilled he's not the instructor. I will never have him as an instructor again!

also when you ask him about your grades he goes "don't worry you doing great and you're fine". (even if you making a C/B/A. 3 exam (1drop), 2 lab. just hate it when he said you focus on what i say on review you get 100% on exam which is false. on a brighter not he said noone ever fail his class.

worse professor i have ever taken ALL he care about is getting every topics on syllabus lectures instead of preparing his students for the exams. EASY CLASS if you already taken biology and know it. hard if its new to you because he got a heavy accent. review before exam date by reading 15% of exxam questions to you but can't understand.
