Dr. Wolgamott's pedagogy is egregious. It is amusing that many students hold lofty opinions of his brilliance, but then it takes a certain level of scholastic maturity to differentiate between possession of a respectable quantity of knowledge and genuine perspicacity. He's one of the worst instructors I've had in completing 199 credit hours.

This class is almost impossible to pass or make a B in if you haven't taken it before or if you somehow have old exams. I studied a lot for this class and have a C to show for it. Lectures are sometimes interesting but exams come from notes and figures. A's and B's are hard to get, just pass and move on.

An intense class that covers an incredible amount of material, Wolgamott tries very hard to make students understand better, through the use of many, many figures. KNOW the figures! I achieved an A fairly easily, mainly because the course content was very interesting to me, but I'll concede that most people do not feel the same way.

Great professor. I pulled an easy A. I studied maybe two or three days in advance for his tests and did well. He explains everything well and the information is repetitive so once you know it, you are set. I recommend his class!

Very difficult class but mainly because the course material is very difficult itself. He is more than willing to help if you ask questions but sometimes he covers the material so fast it is hard to know enough to ask a question.

I recommend Dr. Wolgamott. His microbiology class is very straightforward--no busywork, just 5 quizzes. Be prepared to study! Each of his quizzes has 100 questions, and many of them are pretty tough. Pay attention to detail! He'll ask about some pretty obscure stuff, like some weird enzyme involved in some biological process. Grades curved.

An excellent professor. tough class, but really does a good job of bringing the info to a level that is available to his student. One of the best at SWOSU.

Nice guy but his lectures are hard to follow. You probably wont get much out of his class unless you read ahead in the book and his notes. His exams are really tough. Pay attention to detail. I suggest you use tabs to mark key figures/charts in the book b/c you will have a chance to look at these for the few minutes that he allows during his exams.

Nice, personable, and knowledgable guy BUT possibly the worst teacher I have ever had. Not clear about test content. Tests too difficult for an undergraduate course. Lectures were worthless as he speaks way too fast.

Dr. Wolgamott is very intelligent and always has a joke to break the monotony. My only complaint is that since he knows the material like the back of his hand, he sometimes lectures at an auctioneer's speed.

Tough class, but he's a great lecturer and cares about his students. Always willing to help anyone who wants to learn and has a good attitude. By far the best professor I've had.

Very tough course to teach, but he does it well. Pay attention in class, read the note packet and take notes on the diagrams. Very smart guy, very nice outside of class.

Not too tough of a class class but he is rude when asked for help. he is just a very arrogant and rude guy and is not eager or even willing to help outside of lecture. (or in lecture)

One of the best instructors I've ever had at SWOSU. The the exams were difficult and much studying was required, but class was always very interesting, and entertaining. He knows his stuff, but is able to explain it on a student'level.

you won't find a more knowledgeable professor, up to date on current events and not afraid to have a sense of humor, he's not easy but willing to work with you
