Dr. Onaivi teaches in lecture halls so there isn't one on one help with him. You'll have to go to the SEC for help. He tells you half of the test questions before the test. A lot of the other test questions can be found at the end of the chapters in the book. He hates cell phones, and is also picky about other classroom etiquette.

Great professor. Don't get too friendly though. He gives you a practice exam which literally has 50% of the questions on the actual exam. Study the guide and the practice problems in the text book. He wishes for his students to do well so take advantage of the extra credit opportunities. I studied, went to tutoring, and earned an A.

Respect, respect, respect. You do that and you should do fine. Very hard to read him.He gives you every opportunity to succeed,but everyone was scared of him. Do the work,read his PPTs, and do the extra credit and you should be ok.

Required work for this class is minimal (only 3 exams). His lectures are fast moving and a little hard to follow, so it is important to read prior to class. The study guide he provides before the exam contains exact questions from the exam, so memorize it! Also, attend tutoring at the Science Enrichment Center to receive extra credit points.

Dr. Onaivi is a good guy. He wants his students to do well and is willing to help them. He gives out great review sheets for the test, which have questions that are usually on the test. Go to the extra credit he offers and you'll do fine! Definitely try to take him for both lab & lecture. I got an A, it's really not that hard if you try.

The material for the class is a lot but he finds a way to make it work! He wants everyone to do well and offers a lot of extra credit. The tests are literally the review sheets he gives and the white pages at the end of the chapters. He is an amazing professor!

He's very intelligent and strict, but teaches you lots of important information. The class requires attendance even though he rarely takes it (only on exam days), 4 exams 100 questions, he gives you the powerpoint slides and review sheets to study from. He makes the class interesting when he talks about sex & his study on marijuana lol.

Has an accent. Not that bad of a professor. Just study hard for the exams. The exams come from the study guide and the back of the chapter. He tries to be funny and personable.

Nice guy .. A little crazy when taking exams his favorite phrases are ""the nitty gritty" or "plzz I don't want to call the police" with his thick accent. He gives you review sheets that are what's exactly on the exam and in the same order. And the rest of the exam comes from the end of each chapter the exact ques. If you study those or even just memorize you'll be fine. Do extra credit it's worth it he gives up to 20points

prof is insane and he gets easily confused and side tracked which is hilarious. 3 lecture exams - straight from the book ch. reviews. i never even read the chapters b/c it's not necessary. lots of opportunity for extra credit (15 pts). didn't do squat in labs, but he gives good reviews before lab tests - bring your camera

Exams are fairly easy in that he gives you many of the questions beforehand. Asking questions in this class is useless and this professor may confuse you more if you dare ask for clarity on something.

Best Prof at Willy P. Truely cares about his students. He is very funny. Show up to class, dont use your cell phone - take his reviews seriously and you will do well.

Didnt learn much. Just how to go to the science enrichment center. That's it. He's an okay teacher for lecture, but for lab, its alittle unclear at times so make sure you pay attention to the models because they are used for the lab exams. Anyone can learn on their own by copying from the back of a book! Dont need a teacher 4 that
