Chuck definitely knows his stuff, but he doesn't really know how to teach. Study the terms; you don't even really need to know the concepts of things because the exams are all fill-in-the-blank. But you don't really have a choice, because Chuck is the only anatomy prof, and the only people who take anatomy are those who absolutely have to.

Chuck knows a lot about anatomy/phys but he isn't a good teacher. He just reads off powerpoints in a monotonous way and then tests you on the most detailed things you will never imagine. Try to get summaries off the internet, that's how I got a B+ in his class. Then cram them and make sure you know every single word in his ppts. Good luck..

This is old school hard. I hated these classes and the sheer level of how hard they were, but I learned more under him than I ever thought was possible in one class. Also, he is a great guy and will try to help you.

The class is extremely hard, exams will destroy your self esteem. However, Chuck is helpful and does a good job with the material. You've just got to study more than you ever have.

BIO341 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I am a Guilford Alumna, class of 2005.Chuck's class IS HARD, but if you put appropriate time and effort into studying, you will do just fine. The lab was always open at night and on weekends so that you could come in and study the models. If you needed clarification or needed to arrange an alternative location for test taking,he will work w/you.

If you have a learning disorder DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!!!!! He is not helpful or clear about what he wants. ( unless of course you are young, pretty, and have money or influential parents)

It took me a while to understand what Chuck wanted from his students, but now I think he is the best professor at Guilford. You will learn more in one semester with Chuck than you will learn from the rest of your classes.

This was supposed to be a lab science, yet all we ever did was take notes from power points. Never did a lab, no experiments, no observations, nothing hands on. Just power points.
