He is unbelievably hard. I studied and made below a 50% on the first test so I had to drop! Take anyone but Dr. F

Dr. Freiley is not nearly as bad as these people make him out to be. Yes, it's a hard class, but it's GENETICS! Tests aren't bad at all, as long as you study. Super nice man, if you give him the chance.

This class is soooo hard. I made my first C in this class and I was very happy to get it. I studied for 17 hours for one test and I made a 57%.The tests just make you want to cry. I heard that they are about to hire some new genetics teachers, take anyone but Freiley if at all possible.

This class is the hardest I've ever taken. Tests are killers, and don't expect much help from him. Sit at the front of the classroom, because he whispers when he lectures. You're best bet on a good grade is to somehow get his old tests. Lab is no relief. Until next fall, he's the only prof teaching this class, so good luck! You'll need it.

Seems like a nice old man, until you see his tests! Very confusing and doesn't back down even when he uses trick questions. NO curve, Adv. on the first test was a 61%. Know all terminology, he likes to use it it trick you. Good luck

He is an awesome teacher, take the time to get to know him and you will benefit. Old tests DO NOT help! Just read and go to lecture and you will be fine. Good news is the final is NOT cumlative.

He is SOOOO confusing!! Good luck if you have to take him! He's a nice guy, but it's hard to understand what he's teaching. Get the old tests!

He is a great teacher but the class is hard because the only points come from tests and from lab. But lab is only 25%. The test are mostly multiple choice and usually same Q's as previous semesters so studying off of old tests is best.

You have no choice on this one if you take genetics, but he does seem very excited about teaching.
