"Get ready to read" "Would take again"

Don't be fooled by these other ratings. If you're a SERIOUS student, then Jaeger is no big deal. He gives a specific list of the sections that he will talk about during lecture beforehand. Listen to what he says and review later in the book. Anatomy is ALL memorization. The physiology part is what you need to worry about. Lab exams are easy. STUDY!

Bio 160 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice guy, but i would never take him again for anatomy. Considering he's a research biologist for snakes and frogs, i hope you're interested in learning about the anatomy of them. When he's lecturing he veers off topic about HUMAN anatomy and starts talking about REPTILE anatomy.. This tends to make materialtests confusing.

"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough"

Lectures were to the point. You MUST read the book. Clarity about test material is very vague. No study guides. Labs are on your own. The exams are incredibly tricky, it's either a definitive A or B, could be both A&B or all of the above?! I felt tricked by the exams. Half my class dropped. Very nice guy though! Funny. Always available for help.

"Tests are tough"

Exams are horrible. The way he words the questions is not how he explains the material in class. 60% of my class dropped because of the exams. I would never recommend him.

Make sure that you're ready to do a lot of reading and preparation for the exams and quizzes. If you want to do well on the tests make sure you use the practice test under supplemental resources on the book website. He takes the tests from that material. Good luck.

BIO105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Mostly lecture with a few class activities sprinkled in. Pay attention to what he says, there's no text on the powerpoints. Has a good sense of humor, is quiet, isn't strict with texting, food. He's very young but he's extremely skilled and knowledgeable about the subject. Use the textbook! You cannot rely on just class notes if you want to pass!

BIO105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Lecture heavy. Class went over time almost every time it met. Gave you the information you needed for the test. Online open book untimed quizzes. Helpful if you ask. Knows the material extremely well.
