I had Dave for AP Lab 1 & 2. I am confident I know my stuff because in his lab you have to. Yes it is hard and a bunch of brutal memorization but if you put in the time, you should pass. It is not easy and Dave does not bs his tests; know it or don't. I appreciate having to know it. He always would answer questions.

Dave is super helpful. He wants everyone to succeed. He is quite short but he makes up for it with personality and fun.

Difficult material but he doesn't make it harder than it needs to me. Really nice guy will help you out and work with you when you need it. Test questions are straight forward and easy to predict. All about memorization

This class is about memorizing...you just have to DO IT! The teacher can't teach that...he is fair and helpful but you MUST study! I'm taking him again!

IF YOU GET THIS TEACHER.. im sorry. He is very smart, but he teaches like he is doing lecture rather then lab. Quizes are very hard and when he teaches he is all over the place. IF YOU CAN GET SOMEONE ELSE!!!

Nice guy...knows his stuff but is unclear, not good at helping you to understand things. Only uses less than half of the lab time for instruction.

This was the worst Instructor that I have ever had to deal with, i felt confident that I was prepared for this class but this Instructor has a way of making you feel very Inferior. I tried my best to study to get good grades and it was pointless. He is not willing to answer any questions regarding his teaching or the course work, and his quizzes

By far the most difficult professor to tolerate. He not only doesn't know how to teach, he does not know how to write a decent quiz. He makes all quizzes ridiculous and humiliating and makes you feel as if you wasted your time studying. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!

Do not Take, again I say DO NOT TAKE!!! Hardest of all professors. Will rip your lab work to peices, especially on your scientific method papers. Hard to get all questions correct. Tries his best not to give you an A. Better know your material well before attending class. Most labs you get out early. Can work in groups. Better know phenotyping.

If you care at all about your GPA, do not take him. He is the absolute worst professor I have ever had. Does not explain material well, and gets irritated if you ask questions about it. The absolute worst is the way he grades papers. I have always held very high A's in english. The way he grades is just about impossible to get an A on. Very tough.

Very nice professor. However, he will kill you when he grades your papers. The class I was in had to write a scientific journal (the first that any in the class had ever written). Overall, the grades were horrible. You will fight for every point in his class because of the way he grades writing papers. The labs are easy, but the papers are extremel

As a lab teacher he made the labs kind of easy.. but he KILLS you on you papers and if you dont understand his level of intelligence you might just want to skip this one.

Had him for lab. Very nice man, very knowledgeable, explains the labs well. But you never, ever want him grading you papers. He has the most pedantic grading style of anyone I've ever had or heard of. You can learn in his class, but if you value your GPA, skip this man.

Mr. Karohl needs to retire. He is very knowledgeable in the subject matter but has much to be desired as far as teaching it. He may have been a good teacher but frankly he seems burned out. He talks way to fast and does not slow down even when questions are asked. He seems to get annoyed if you do not understand how he explains it. Avoid Him.

I am a 4.0 student and have to work very hard at it. He is tough because he doesn't teach well and his quizzes seem intentionally tricky. Not the kind of tricky that makes you think harder either. The kind of tricky that is humiliating. No matter how well I knew material, I fought like a dog for every point. Sorry, Dave. I tried to like ya!

He's a great teacher. Most who complain are merely lazy. Dave lays the groundwork and expects you to investigate the models yourself. I love this style of teaching, because everything shouldn't be spoon-fed to you. It means you actually have to study to do well in his class! THE HORROR! :) It's fine, when he dismissed early you can look at models.

He leaves plenty of time to let you look at models and will answer any questions you have. He's funny and I've never seen him leave the room to go smoke. His tests are hard, but study and you'll be fine. Yes, you actually have to study. You're responsible for making sure you understand the material. That's just the way this class is.

This class is all about Dave. It appears he is more interested in making himself sound intelligent than explaining the material that will be on a test. I studied my brains out for a quiz that he did not go over the models for because 'he won't treat us like fifth graders'. His tests are a complete shot in the dark-- you can't tell what's coming.
