"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

If I had it to do over again, I would not have taken Dr. Vu.

"Tests are tough"

Dr. Vu is an excellent professor but his class is tough. He is an extreme believer in paying attention to detail. For his exams be sure to know every aspect of all major concepts. His class is not easy but he is very helpful. Ask questions during lecture and office hours! Pay close attention to his powerpoints.

Dr. Vu is by far the best teacher I have ever had, he teaches in a way that will help you remember the material. He is also very funny and tells stories that will keep the class interesting. The test are not easy they consist of a lot of critical thinking but if you study you should do fine. Take him if you actually want to learn the material.

Biol 2401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr.Vu is a great professor, I have learned so much from his class. Never pay attention in class, but I spent the whole 2 hours in class listening to his lecture and got an A. You just have to attend class every day because his tests are based on his lecture. Dont need to read the book, just read the powerpoint and take good notes.

BIOL01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is very tough. Defiantly will take up the majority of the time if you take it during the summer. I struggles only because of the fast paced schedule. Overall Vu is a good teacher but in my opinion his test have too much critical thinking for A&P 1. Enter this class with caution . YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK FOR WHATEVER GRADE YOU WANT!

I LOVE Dr. Vu. One of the best professors I have ever had. He is passionate about what he teaches and has a great story. This class was tough but I loved being challenged and Vu makes you think critically. I took another prof for A&P2 in the summer & I'm kicking myself for not taking Vu. He prepared me well for medschool. Such a warm-hearted man.

BIOL-2402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I think everyone going into nursing should take Vu, but anyone having a hard time understanding thick accents should stay away. Also, it's very important that you don't take him if you aren't a VERY fast test taker. You can study all day and night, but there isn't an adequate amount of time allotted for the tests given the depth of the questions.

Dr Vu is a really good professor but he is hard. Recommend to take it if you give your full effort and time in this class. only took 3 classes because i need an A for A&P and right now i'm making all A's for the tests. record his lessons! it was easier for me and also take good notes. study 24/7 and you'll do fine.

I loved Vu's class, but that is only because I like A&P. His class is best for those going in to the nursing field. He goes to a level of depth that isn't necessarily right for other programs. It isn't taught as the survey course it is meant to be. Ex: having to learn a long list of medications, both generic name and brand name

ANATOMY Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If your goal is to love and understand the information better than you ever have before then take Vu! BUT if you are looking for an easy A...then stay far far away from his class. I have never worked so hard for an A in my entire life, but I've also never appreciated an A so much either. I LOVED Dr. Vu!

Very hard I hope to escape with a B. I have a bad lab instructor so A&P is hard for this semester. Dr.Vu knows his stuff. Ive defiantly learned a lot. His test will just break you. I wouldn't take him unless you want to be a doctor.

Blessed to have taken Dr. Vu. He cares deeply about his students' educational standards, & rightly prepares them for their profession. Study ALOT, read the book, take good notes. 2 tests online 2 in class. A lot of his quizzes are based on attendance. Understand that you cannot slack off in this class. Be prepared to study!!

Dr. Vu is a wonderful teacher. Very funny. If learning is easy you well love him. Hard for me to understand. Test were very hard. He is very helpful. If you pass his class you can go on to be a doctor. Thats how much you learn.

BIOL-2402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C+

Dr. Vu is a wonderful teacher. He gives a purpose to learning the material, not just the ability to impractically regurgitate information for the semester. I like that his lab practicals make you think critically and not get you used to viewing everything in perfect anatomical position. His lecture exams however, involve obscure critical thinking.

Dr. Vu was great. Challenging and not the easiest but you will definitely learn ALOT. Took both A&PI & II in the summer and it was fast and tough. Test are multiple choice, but tricky and make you think. Grades on a curve. Only take in summer if you have no other classes and no job. I studied a lot and got A's in both I & II.

Great professor! I learned a lot from him and made an A but it required studying. Listen to his tips because they are helpful. If he says you have to know everything you do! Don't expect to leave the class without knowing anything too.

Dr. Vu is a good teacher and I will not recommend taking this class online! His very compassionate about teaching and his stories are funny. If you take him see if has a student assistant...(his SI saved me!!)If you going into the medical field some of his questions test on his test are critical thinking.

Hard to pass his class if attendance is poor. Exams AND pop quizzes are all critical thinking and problem solving. NO extra credit. He's funny and passionate and if you are looking to be a doctor or nurse, he will be the perfect professor that will help make the material "stick". RECORD HIS LECTURES. Trust me. He goes fast.

Dr. Vu is the best teacher I have ever had. He is hard, but fair and is willing to help if you ask. If you are serious about the medical field and want to learn the RIGHT way take him, if you want any easy A forget it. You will study more for this class than any other. Critical thinking a must and record his lectures it will save you!
