I go to Rutgers (NB) I can honestly say its the easisest science class I've taken and yes I'm a STEM major. He gives a lot of extra credit,no booke required and I studied 2hrs before an exam and got A's. He's not that helpful in lab but they're easy. He also tends to ramble in lecture. Take him especially if you're a non-bergen student.

the beginning of semester I didnot understand him, English is my second language.when I got used to his method of teaching,I learned a lot. there are 3 test from combined chapters and 3 lab test plus a research paper. be careful he is true scientist and picky one. if you want to learn something and science is your major take his class.

Honestly Highley is a very good professor. His tests are made up of everything that he teachs in lecture and during lab. Seriously if u=your looking for an easy A, dont take him. But dont let other comments scare you. He hard but if u really study hard then youll be fine.

The only good thing I remember about this class is that I didn't have to buy a textbook. There is so much to learn that if you don't study your butt off you are definitely going to fail. The tests made for you to fail. Even so, I got an A because I studied HARD. Take him only if you already have knowledge in Bio and if you are a bio major.

He is literally the worst! He doesn't like compromise and loves to argue with students because he always has to be right. Directions are confusing, and he gives a couple lab quizzes. Very uptight kind of guy. I advise you NOT to take him.

he may seem like a cool guy but not so much as a professor. during lectures, he doesn't explain the material clearly rather he will use analogies or some type of theory to explain it. labs he has us just sit there and observe things. he literally acts as if were at Harvard. his exams are tough and if your looking for an easy A, don't take him!

Had him 2 semesters in a row. Bio 1 and 2, He can seem a little rude but he's not a bad guy. If you ask him for help he will be more then happy to help. There are a lot of exams all based on his lectures and packets that he hands out STUDY!!! If you study and work your butt off it will pay off.

His class is difficult if you don't study or put in the work. He hands out a note packet and throughout the semester goes over each and every point and thats what the tests are on - there are no surprise questions if you study properly. If you're looking to learn, this class is for you. If you want an easy A, look elsewhere.

Loved the class, hated the exams. The exams were way too detailed and a complete waste of time. Grades on a curve! Horrible in the lab, never explained anything but expected you to spend the entire length of the lab just "observing".

I had highley for bio 101 summer class and he is amazing! He is very strict with cell phones and lab safety but he gave many extra credit opportunities and curved all of our tests.... So nice and cares about his students.. As long as you try and work hard you will get a good grade!

IF you take him prepare for the hardest class you've ever taken. the tests are impossible! the notes will help you so little. He barely helps in lab and the ancient projectors prefer not to say anything about that. If have another choice DON'T TAKE HIM

Highly anal and by the book! Not an easy Professor to get along with. Excessive rules cell phones, lateness etc... Dont take him unless you have a real interet in Bio or Chem. He can be very condescending at times. Tests on a curve!
