BIOL 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Probably my favorite professor in the department. His lecturing is unbelievably clear and interesting the whole way through. A lecture on evolution by Bertin is like a sax solo by Dave Brubeck, fluid and mesmerizing. Tests were pretty difficult, be prepared to answer questions that aren't very straightforward.

BIOLSTAT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class was incredibly difficult, yet it was a tough subject to teach. The professor does not write enough on the board. Overall I learned a lot from this professor, yet I would not take him again, since his tests are to hard and I feel that the class was more work then it should have been. Yet this class is very very useful!

Love this man. He is very willing to help and if you go to office hours it will help your grade. His tests are VERY hard which is frustrating but mostly the tests are on his lectures. I would recommend him to anyone just be ready to study hard.

BIOL132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Bertin keeps students interested in what he's teaching (zoology for me). He puts something in for everyone (who is a science major). Good humored. Tests were ridiculously hard however. You thought you were going to do well, because you seemed to understand it, and would get a C. Study hard for this professor.

MONT100N 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 had Prof. Bertin for the Environmental Science seminar. His lectures are really clear and everything on the test comes from lecture notes. Tests seem easy but he's a hard grader and wants a lot of detail. He's a really nice guy and is fair and helpful.

BIOL132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His lectures are very clear, though they won't make you interested in invertebrate zoology if you didn't like it before. Very helpful. Tests can be hard and are based mostly on notes. Bio 132 tends to weed out Bio majors, but don't be discouraged because other Bio topics are more interesting.

Professor Bertin is so nice, and will make a genuine effort to help you. The class seems easy until you take the first test.

Bio 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

STUDY YOUR LECTURE NOTES!!! He is a really nice guy, but his tests are REALLY hard. I had so much trouble with his multiple choice questions (10 per test, worth 4 points each). In two exams, I got 32 points out of 80 on the multiple choice. Yeah..
