This class was detailed and difficult, but definitely passable in comparison to the other 500 level classes. Just study. Study. Study. Study. And you can pull a C or B easily. Good prof. but way too difficult on grading certain assignments on top of a load of material. Recommended, but just be careful.

Very good teacher. He gave homework which most bio teachers do not give and also gave extra credit. I liked his class because he really helped you understand the material and he recorded his lectures

Hes super easy. If you pay attention and do the homework you will get an A. He is probably the easiest professor I have ever had. He is very clear on what will be on the test and what he expects from you. He puts out study guides... He also gives extra credit. Also SI helps ALOT.

AWESOME professor. Extremely helpful and very entertaining. He's fun to listen to and isn't too bad on the eyes, either. Highly recommend taking his course!

Dr. Labanick is the best professor at Upstate. I recommend him to anyone taking Biology. He is very helpful and explains any questions you have. He's very funny and never in a bad mood. He inspired me and plan on taking him in the future. Final grade was an A, study a lot.

He knows his stuff but is not very good at making it clear. It is VERY hard to figure out what exactly will be on tests. I would study for hours and take the test to find stuff on there to my surprise. GO TO SI for homework review because those will be the essay questions on the tests. But as far as multiple choice it is very hard to study for it.

Straight up professor. Put the effort, and he'll do everything in his power to make sure you'll learn it. Best Biology professor I've had here at Upstate.

Not the easiest professor, but he wasn't very hard either. He is very clear when it comes to instruction and sometimes he'll tell you what's on the upcoming test. He hardly ever missed class (he only missed one of mine). As long as you study and do the homework, you'll be fine.

Great professor. Not extremely easy, but has a sense of humor and doesn't take attendance. Tests are straight from powerpoints.

I LOVED his class. He was very clear on what he wanted and very clear on what would be on tests. Show up to class and lab, do your homework, and study some and you'll be absolutely fine. He's super fun and loves to joke around with his students. I had a 100 average in this class without even re-writing in my final paper. Extra credit is plentiful!*

Of course you had to do work, its college. Overall his test was easy. The only thing you need to do is your homework assignments and study them. On another note he allows you to do extra credit assignments which also helps boost your grade. I believe he is a really good professor.

Dr. Labanick is the best professor ever! Don't get me wrong, his class is hard. But if you pay attention in class, do the homework, and go to class you will do good. He gives you a few homeworks each test, and if you memorize them for the test you get all of the essays right. he is so caring and helpful! :)

Definitely one of the best science teachers at upstate. He is really nice and actually wants you to succeed in biology unlike the other teachers who try to weed you out. Go to class, memorize the homework, and learn your vocabulary!

Great professor. Everything on the tests comes straight from the notes and homework. The material can be difficult, but Labanick gives you chances to rework the homeworks, lab reports, and even some of the tests. He even gives extra credit just for coming to class. If you are willing to put in the work, you can easily get an A in his class.

Very Rude and he talks down to you. I was very intimidated to ask questions. Expect A LOT of work (easy) but its something atleast twice a week. He gives u the chance to improve ur grade (test retakes) and there is always free candy. He is a good prof. I would just seek help from other students before i go to him.
