"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

HATED THIS CLASS AND EVENTUALLY DROPPED IT AT THE LAST MINUTE. THE MATERIAL IS NOT CLEAR AND HIS LECTURES ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE. VERY HARD TO KEEP UP WITH HIM AND HE IS NOT VERY CLEAR WHEN TRYING TO EXPLAIN THE MATERIAL. THE EXAMS ARE MAINLY FILL IN THE BLANKS AND OVER SEVERAL CHAPTERS. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANYONE.

"Tests are tough"

If you go to class and study you can pass pretty easy. Class was at night so you gotta stay on top of the work.

Dr. Ozier is a good teacher. The tests are straight forward and he is clear with the material. Yes you will need to study but that's what you are in college for!!! Go to class, pay attention, study, and you will have no problem passing with an A.

BIO 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hated this class!!! He is so confusing and not very clear on things at all. I wanted to drop him but I couldn't, ended up with a B, by the skin of my teeth! No study guides for the tests, and they are multiple choice, fill in blank and cover several chapters, lab exams are the same but actually come from just your labs. He is very unorganized!!!

This class is not nearly as hard as everyone makes it out to be. I recommend getting the disk that comes with the text book and using the practice test tool. Many test questions came from that. Know terms! Did this when I was dual enrolled at the age of sixteen and passed with A. The lectures are boring but Ozier knows what he is talking about.

If you are a freshman don't take this class. I loved this class. I learned a lot just by listening. Study TERMS! You will have to study hard and it will pay off. Serious students only.

Horrible teacher! Could not stand him! He would forget things that he told you and think you should know things that he didn't tell you. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!

Dr. O is noyt as bad s people make him out to be all you have t do is listen is class study what he say and you wil pass all of his test. People complain because he didnt give study guides but what they didnt seem to realize is he does a review befor each test in which they never stayed for.. I would most def take him again

It's a hard class, but if you study hard and go to class you will definitely pass. He is not above helping, but don't expect a free ride. I learned sooo much from this class it's amazing. If you are not interested in the effort, I wouldn't take him. But if you aren't afraid of a challenge, this is the teacher to take.

BIOL1111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I'm not going to lie - this class IS HARD. However, Mr. Ozier is helpful and will see to it that you pass his class IF you ask him for help and show initiative. I wouldn't recommend him, but if you have good study skills and enjoy biology, he has a great understanding of the subject. The material is difficult, though.

Very hard teacher, entire lecture is over slides printed off from textbook. Does not respond to emails, does not give study guides, tests are over 4-5 chapters at a time. No homework grades, classwork grades, Only grades you have are your test grades. Messed up 3 of our labs. Not organized or prepared. His idea of extra credit is a bonus quiz.
