Mark is the absolute worst science teacher at MCC. He should no longer be a teacher, he does not teach. In lab it's all up to you, he does not teach one thing. While in class he doesn't even write notes down, it's all up to you to listen. His tests are a joke, and are just blank pages. DO NOT TAKE HIM! Unless you want a terrible grade.

Bio 263 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

He was stuck on old terms and not aware of the new ones that our textbook used. when the new terms were written on the essay part of an exam I was marked off and had to defend myself. He couldn't explain the materials without his notes. He also gave NO direction in lab, especially with dissection of the cats. DON'T TAKE HIM!!

Very hard class simply because it is all memorization!! Make sure you take good notes or record the lectures so you can go back to them when studying the objectives for the test! You will spend A LOT of time studying for these classes so be prepared and don't overload on classes when you take these if you expect an A.

A tough class and tough teacher. He expects a lot out of his tests and they are all basically memorization and essay questions. He is a nice guy and definetely makes the subject interesting. My advice is just expect to spend a lot of time studying in his class and take good detailed notes.

This is a hard class, but mainly due to the material. He is a very fair teacher, and loves what he does! I started the class hating biology, and he certainly made it interesting and enjoyable. He is a great guy, and I highly recommend taking his class.

You take a lot of notes in his class. If you want to get a good grade make sure you study the notes for at least a couple of hours. He is very willing to help you as long as you put in the effort. Very nic guy, learned a lot

BIO157 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult class. The entire period and much of lab is nothing but note taking and more note taking(your hand will be hurting). No time to comprehend what's being talked about. Very difficult tests and rushed labs. Dropped class after 6 weeks, effort put in wasn't worth C I was getting. Retook class in 4 week Intercession and recieved an A.

Tests, labs, and practicals every week. Given list of at least 2 pages of organisms that need to be memorized for each lab practical, which are ridiculous. Knows his material and gives out page saying what tests will cover, even though there have been times when more material has been on tests. I would definitely keep my options open if you can.

The class is really hard but he knows what he's talking about. He has high expectations & there are lots of tests (but you learn a lot). He's only annoyed with questions if it's clear that you don't pay attention or care.

This instructor is horrible, does not let students ask questions, is rude, condescending, and unclear on material. It seems his tenure is the only thing keeping him teaching. If you want help, he is useless, if you study your brains out you might pull a C on a test. He is a miserable man, who never smiles, seems very unhappy NO PASSION LEFT.

This man is a trip. dont expect to get your questions answered. when you do ask, hes irrated, and then refers you to the prior days notes, and it seems that he cant explain the material without his notes infront of him. be prepared to write fast, he talks fast and wont go over it unless you ask asap. dont take him!

Really nice! Helpful teacher with a good sense of humor! Best science teacher I ever had! Field trips were awsome, we got to wade around in MCC's ponds! Challenging course, but not overly for a science class. Would definitly recommend this teacher!
