BIO181 BIO182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

He is seriously the best teacher I had for bio 181 and bio 182. His class is hard so its not enough to just take notes and attend class. I found re-listening to his lectures helped me so much. Hes willing to help you out anytime, you just have to ask him. He is funny too so he is not a boring person. He knows his stuff so utilize his knowledge.

BIO 181 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is alright.He goes off his lectures. Luckily, he records them and posts them. There is NO homework but his tests are hard. It was hard to keep up but listening to the lectures repeatedly helped. I don't recommend his class but if you have to go over the lectures multiple times daily so you are better prepared for the exams. Good luck!

Dr. Hoffman is very easy to get along with. The class was easy as long as you showed up and payed attention. The tests make up much of your grade, but they are multiple choice and don't require much studying if you pay attention in class! As long as you pay attention and take notes there's no reason to not do well.

BIO 156 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Phenomenal! If you enjoy learning and want to make the most out of your education, Ty will provide you with all the essentials you need to succeed. He records all his lectures that you can access at any time and provides detailed notes aside from the book during his lectures. He's tough but he knows his stuff! #APPROVED

Ty is a great professor! I had him for BIO156 and he really knows his stuff. He's very helpful and puts his lectures and slide shows online. I wish he taught more classes, I'd take him again in a heartbeat.

BIO181 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class contains a lot of information and can be overwhelming at time but he is a good instructor who tries to help as much as possible. The test may be tough but if you put a lot of time into studying you will be fine.He records his lectures for his students which is very helpful.

Best Instructor I had this semester. I honestly don't know why there isn't more A's in his classes. All I really had to do is listen, take notes and quickly review the lessons before the exams. He even records the lessons for you. This instructor is great. You can read the Bio book as a supplement but it is't required. Highly recommended instructor

bio156 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

You REALLY have to study and put the time in for his classes, but he explains the material thoroughly and records lectures so as long as you put your time into, it's an excellent class.

BIO156 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

VERY HARD! I received an A out of the class but there were only two others that received one as well. You have to study exactly what he says. Listen to the lectures twice and make sure that you comprehend everything. I sucked at the lab but made it up with the lecture exams. The class started with like 27 and ended up with 10! Pray for wisdom!!!

BIO181 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hoffman is a bad professor. You have to attend every class and understand his notes. He talks very fast and your grade is all tests. There is absolutely no homework to help your grade. I would NOT recommend this professor.

Dr. Hoffman was a really good professor! His tests were pretty hard but he was always ready to help. He recorded all his lectures and posted them online, along with the slide shows, which was really nice.

BIO105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Ty is REALLY hard, but he seriously knows his stuff. If you want to learn a TON and don't mind studying a lot-take his class. There's no texbook for biotechnology which was cool, but his tests are really hard (& they're most of your grade). He's really laid back & willing to help students out, but only about 8/20 people got a B or better.
