Bio1410 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+
"Tests are tough" "Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass."

If you go to the SI sessions before the tests you will receive enough information that you don't really need a book considering only a few questions on the test come from it. You also need to study for his recommended 8-10 hours for each test to make an A or B.

BIO1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

I took Dr. Strenth's class just for my core science credit and it was very easy. You don't use the book; all of his lectures are on a power-point, which is good because Strenth speaks very quietly and is hard to understand most of the time... even with a microphone. There's only 4 tests so make sure you take good notes.

Dr. Strenth is one of the best profs I have ever had. He genuinely cares about his pupils learning, and praises those who show a personal interest in grasping what he has to teach. He will work with you on anything, and is to the point about what he expects from you. Goofiest old man I have ever met, too. He's soft spoken, but still talks a lot!!

I have taken him for 4 advanced bio classes and he is awesome! yes, it is true that you should sit in front because he is soft spoken. He is a great man and a good professor. Very understanding and cares more about what you are actually learning than what you are making on tests.For advanced bio classes, be prepared to be in the field!!

BIO1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Had him for lab. He is soft spoken so it's hard to hear when he's giving lectures. He also drags on lecture, so there's always a shortage of time on completing classwork. Someone else grades; she's tough. She'll count off for everything. Everyone complains about how its impossible to make an A. Don't take him.

Dr. Strenth's class by far has been my favorite class so far. He is so straight forward and will tell you exactly what is on the exam. GO TO CLASS and take your notes & you will do fine. He is very willing to help. I missed a whole week of classes & he worked with me. He is hard to hear so sit up front! His class is great! very, very clear!

I'm not sure why this professor has such a high rating. His class is okay but he is rude. He tells the class over and over again that alot of them will not pass. He also says "ok" so much that it is hard to pay attention to him. Also one day I walked in and was sick and he made me sit in the back by my self! Where is could not here him.

He is so funny! It is hard to hear him, so sit in first three rows, but his tests are STRAIGHT from class notes and maybe 6 questions each test from book. He tells you what to study. Must attend class to pass. Take notes and STUDY at least 5 hours for each test YOU WILL DO FINE. He is funny and wants students to succeed that deserve it!

Strenth is a humorous teacher! He keeps the class interesting. Tests are easy if you take all the notes, few questions that can from the textbook. Easy to talk to one on one. Cares about his students. Recommended to those who like to learn!

ENTO3461 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I have taken this professor for multiple classes. He really cares about his students on an individual level, and if you show potential, he will take you on research projects. His classes are very entertaining with multiple field trips. Somewhat softspoken but tells very interesting stories. His classes hold some of my best memories at ASU.

He is a very good teacher. He has a review for every test. As long as you try and take notes. You will do perfectly fine in the class! He likes to tell stories to during class. Keeps it intresting.

Wish his class wasn't so early, I'd be more awake when I take his test and would have a mid-A. Show up, write, listen, study, test...rinse and repeat.

Not very exciting. Of course, I took this class at 8 in the morning, so that could have had something to do with it. Make sure you sit up close to the front. He is pretty soft spoken. Not a terribly hard class.

BEST PROFESSOR EVER!! Okay. If we start to take a look at it... he now has a microphone so he is much easier to hear. Strenth is super easy to pass if you listen and take notes and take your time on the test so you dont make stupid mistakes. He is very easy to talk to if you ever have a question. FANTASTIC!

If we start to take a look at it, the only reason you won't have an A in biology is because of the person who grades the lab papers (jerk). The only hard part to his tests is not flying through it because the questions can be so easy. In my opinion, take this guy for lecture and Dixon for lab (he makes them).

Dr. Stenth is a wonderful teacher!!! He is the coolest professor I have ever had. Asking questions gets you on his good side! He is a bit soft spoken and that takes time getting used to, but he explains every thing very well, and will help you!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENCED FOR STUDENTS WILLING TO WORK AND LEARN!

Dr. Strenth is an awesome teacher. I was never interested in biology until I took him. While his lectures sometimes go off on different tangents, he's interesting to listen to and funny. Read your book and study about an hour each night a week before the test and you'll do great. Tests are straightforward and there are no trick questions.
