BIO 1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I personally really enjoyed taking this class! His exams were a little tricky and his final was difficult, but I learned a lot in the end. If you come to class, skim the book, and review his lecture power points before tests you will do fine!I would recommend taking him.

Genetics 2490 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

He was to the point in his lessons. First half was him writing on the board, second half was power points and the pace picked up at that point. I enjoyed his class and labs. Take notes and read your book and you will be fine.

Genetics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His test are unnecessarily hard. If you can memorize the entire text book, then you will do great on his test.He ask really detail specific questions, a lot of it being stuff not greatly focused on in class. He expects you to know everything, not just understand the concepts and how things generally work.

BIO 1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C-

Jones is a very intelligent. He seems to be more interested to show the class that he is smart rather than informing the class. Although it was very tough, if you went to his office he tried to help! Lab was fun, test was impossible, but he was a very fun teacher. I would avoid unless you want to memorize every word and chapter he says and assigns.

BIO1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class was definitely harder than I expected it to be, but you can easily adjust to the way he tests. Tests are very challenging. Lab was fun and easy and is worth 40% and an 88% is an A. No homework and he dropped lowest test grade and replaced or lowest test grade with what we made on the final! I ended up with an A!

Bio1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Jones is a great professor and a cool guy. He is always willing to help if you need it. The material covered is not easy and his tests are difficult. He does make Lab fun. But if you don't have a good background in Biology, don't take this class.

BIOL 1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice guy, but this class is ridiculous. I'm a 4.0 student and I made D's on tests. For the tests you need to know really specific things. Make sure you do well in lab because that's what is going to help your grade. Don't take him unless you absolutely have to. There are other professors who will explain better and help you more.

BIOL 1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Seemed to me like he was more focused in showing you how smart he was and in the small unimportant details than he was on actually teaching you to understand what was going on. Easy going. Doesn't use the book. Over all good guy! Would recommend taking someone else though for a beginner biology course.

BIOL1440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice guy but his class is awful. I took him in the summer so that could have made it tougher but his tests are very difficult. I never made above C. The lab grades help out a lot and when I took him there wasn't any homework. He gives all the notes on slides. I would not recommend taking him if you can help it.
