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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Test are worded badly making it hard to pass. But lab and homework grades makes it easy to pass. You DO NOT need your book. He gives slides. Drops lowest test score. easy going!

He is a relaxed teacher. Easy points are the quizzes he gives online,do pre tests. His tests are hell, i studied all night and never got a B and im a deans list student.It's not just me, all his test averages are 50-60's range, but curved all of them. got a decent grade though. If you don't slack off he is a good teacher, just study & see him.

Jones had no homework when I took him but said he was going to start giving quizzes. The only grades were tests and labs. The labs are super easy and pretty interesting. We always got out early of labs and usually class. His tests are ridiculous though and you have to study to do well. Do NOT purchase the book. He gives powerpoints for everything.
