I would recommend you take his class on campus, not online. online was a bit difficult. The study guides are extremely long! The tests are taking on campus. There are 6 tests. lowest one will be dropped. Not too bad, but not easy. Worked very hard for my B!

This online class is not all that others make it out to be. It's hard. The Proctored exams do have questions that come out of nowhere and appear to be McGraw Hill test bank questions. Take this on campus... A&P is not online class material.

Amazing professor, I took him for summer 2. Worth the 45 minutes travel time.take good notes in lecture and you will pass his exams. rarely even touch my textbook, but did need the lab manual.he's a bit hard of hearing, so speak up and speak clearly. Pretty easy A if you put in the effort. great nice guy. Must attend lectures.

Best teacher ever ! He is very easy to understand and everything on the exam comes from lecture notes. I highly recommend him. Want an A, work hard for it & he will give you that A. He cares more about your grade & your effort into making the grade then everything. He is understanding & he is funny when he wants to be. Great professor !

great professor is always willing to help you further understand any topic if you take notes and do the review sheets for lecture and lab you will make an A in the class and that is more important to him than staying on tract.

I took BIOL 2402 (A/P #2) online, and I wouldn't recommend taking this online. I feel like A/P is too in depth for just an online class where are you are provided with is homework assignments, online labs, and then tests. I wish I had taken this class in-class instead of online. Professor was nice.

Get this teacher! guaranteed A. Keep up with your work in lab and lecture. He loves what he does and he's always willing to help. He understands if you have some issues, he works with you. A lot of extra credit opportunities. You have a guaranteed 6 pts extra on exams if you do a good study guide. Draw on them, I always got full points bc of it.

Do the work and you will learn alot! His A&P I course prepared me for physiology at the university level. I got a B in his online course but an A at the university level. They don't make professors like him often!

Professor Bates is a very informative instructor that provides both the information you need for the class as well as information that you might want to learn about for your career in health care. Professor Bates provides review sheets for each test which can often be used on tests as well as extra credit points added to your test grade.

Mr. Bates very knowledgeable about the material that he is teaching you and willing to answer questions that you have about the material, as he said it best ? that?s what he?s there for?. He provides review sheets for both his lecture and lab exams. And extra credit opportunities do present themselves throughout the semester

Took A&P online with him (both levels). Its a little hard just doing it online. He's pretty easy, and fair grader. I think it's hard enough to make a perfect A in this class, even harder online. But he seems very nice and explains any questions you have. Would recommend him.

This is the teacher to get if you want to get an A, I had some personal issues that interfered with school that's why i ended up with a high B. Overall, he makes the class very easy, its like he wants you to get an a, he gives so many opportunities to earn extra points! great teacher! get his class for sure!

Prof. Bates responds to email and grades fast. Homeworks needs to be answered in great detail straight from the book.Take home tests are pretty hard. Proctored tests are off the chain!Can't answer most of the questions even with open book!Basically u have to memorized the book word for word to pass the test!Online class not recommended!
