Every lecture was recorded, and I never used the textbook. Expectations are fair and made clear. Study the slides and you will do fine

Had him for Lab and he is a really good professor. He is a cool guy and easy going so his class is fun. The pre lab quizzes are hard but make sure your lab notebook and lab reports are complete and you will do fine.

This is an excellent professor who is very good at his job. I was hoping to have him for bio 201 and 202,but no such luck. My C+ is due to my laziness this semester. Dr. Hoffman gives you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes and correct them which is the sign of an educator. these days there are very few of them.

He teaches the course very well. He wont hold your hand, but if you need help he is glad to give it. If you complete all the assignments and pay attention to his lectures, you should do fine. He is however strict about attendence.

He does seem to ramble but I thought his tests were pretty easy. No tricks or funky wording. You do have to show up tho cause the way his slides are set up you'll only get the info from the lecture and there were clickers too for points. He does have his lectures taped but that didn't work for me so don't count on that.

Dr. Hoffman is an extremely good professor. He covers the class material in much detail and even records his lectures so you can go over them again before the exam. He loves to focus on hormones, action potentials, and cell metabolism. Take Hoffman if at all possible, you will learn a lot

I like his style of teaching. I thought it made sure I had to pay attention and go to class. I thought that it was really cool that he would flat out admit that there were things which he did not know. He puts up slides and just starts talking. To me this is a sign of a well organized lecture as and a professor that knows what he is talking about.

Did not like his style of teaching at all! Specially when the other teacher took over for him! His exams were extremely hard and during lecture he just used figures from the book and explained them,****ty power points!
