BIOL466 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 took this class a few semesters ago and had a blast. It is such an interesting course and Walker was good at capturing everyones attention. Had a take home final, and all of the tests were easy in my opinion but he was also a fair grader. You have to put in effort but if you're somewhat interested in behavioral ecology it won't be hard.

Bio 171 is your first science course as a Biology major - and its a difficult one, but you couldn't ask for a better professor than Dr. Walker. He makes lectures fun, and you can truly tell how much he cares about his students. You need to do your part and study, but if you put in the effort, Dr. Walker will do everything he can to help. Take him !

BIO171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

GREAT professor. You can tell that he's very passionate about what he does, and it resonates in his teaching. As long as you just keep up with the work, reading, and labs, it's not that bad. Definitely know the stuff inside and out--the Plant test and Final were both pretty tricky. All in all, I totally recommend him :)

BIO171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you're a nerd, you'll love Sean as a person. He's pretty funny. His lectures are pointless, but you need to go so you can get points for the PRS questions. 4 Exams, not terrible, except the PLANT ONE AHHH! And the final sucked. Questions can get tricky and seem like there's multiple answers if you don't know your stuff. Overall not a bad class.

Class is easy if you have the time. If you work and have 4 other classes like I did it's a little challenging, very demanding class. Beware lecture is merely a bragging show to boost seans ego. he gets off when you get PRS questions wrong. He tries to trick you on tests as well, so know your stuff. best part of this class was lab and field trips.

Definitely the best professor Ive had so far.He's motivating, enthusiastic, helpful, and dedicated to student success!Not only him, but the TA's, and student tutors all are available to help since it is a class with a ton of course material.Field trips, attendance, and dedication on your part is required. You can't afford to slack off in this class

Dr. Walker is a great prof and really enjoys teaching. Lectures can sometimes be a little boring, but he always try's to brighten it up with comedy. If you have any questions for him he can be very helpful in his office hours.

One of the best professors at Fullerton. Great personality, knows the entire class by name, and really wants his students to be into the material and learn it. Tests are straight forward and lectures are interactive and interesting. Highly recommend taking at least one class with Walker!

By FAR the best biology class I have ever taken. Walker makes it clear, fun and interesting! He is funny and actually cares about his students. There is a mandatory field trip to the desert, but that's part of the class no matter which prof you take it with. Make sure you do the reading and pay attention in lecture and you'll do great.

based on the comments i thought he would be a great teacher. truth was he did not teach, he just repeated what was already in the book, did not clarify well during lectures. tries to be funny during lecture to make up for the fact that he can't teach. oh and you have to go to the mohave desert for an overnight trip lab was extremely demanding!

Greatest instructor ever! He made sure you could reach him at any time if his students needed help. He's very involved and enthusiastic about teaching and the well-being of his students. He also makes you learn the material. I'm not one to retain anything from a class but I will from this instructors class. I LOVE HIM! HE'S AWESOME!

Prof. Walker is great! Goes out of his way to help students learn; offers extra credit; many study reviews so everyone can attend; nice; and approachable. Course requires a lot of work and time. Many things to keep up on, but that just means that your final grade doesn't depend solely on exams! That's good! Be honest w/him. Come to class!

Biol06 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are very boring, disorderly, and repetitve. He posts them online AFTER each class along with the class audio. Exams are extremely hard and require a lot of studying. They consist of multiple choice and short answer essays. Requires you write 2 papers.

I hate biology. This class made me hate it more. There's only 3 tests throughout the whole semester, 2 papers, and sometimes a pop quiz. When he lectures he uses pictures to explain things. I'm more of the person that'd prefer definitions and write down EXACTLY what was goig to be on the test. I did like that he gave credit to the creation theory.

Sean is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's helpful, passionate about his work, and above all COMPASSIONATE. He cares about his students a lot and he really made that class easier. He's a great guy and would take him for every class if I could. Thanks Sean.

He's a really outgoing guy, big dork. Class is tough if you don't really like science, but if you read, and go to the study sessions, you'll be fine. He puts all his lectures up on blackboard (both the powerpoints and the audio usually)...so the only thing you really have to go for is the occasional pop quiz he gives for attendance points basically
