BIO2080 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His class is very challenging, yet rewarding. I took it earlier this summer and I can still recite the muscles, bones, and brain. He teaches for understanding, and is very willing to help (he does it without asking). Loved the lecture, loved the lab. Absolutely recommend him to anyone, interested or not. He will make you love it!

BIO2070 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

great man and he cares about his students, but i had to self teach myself the entire semester. His lab was easy if you studied. His lecture was terrible. I didnt learn anything, we talked more about his personal life than biology. He didnt tell you what to study he just said read the book. I did at least 7 hours of studying each night to get a B

BIO-2070 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Brother Coggins was definitely a character, a very funny guy and made class interesting with his little side stories and comments. I really enjoyed his class, but if you want to pass you HAVE to study, especially in lab... He really does want his students to succeed, so if you give him the effort to learn he'll help you pass!

Professor Coggins is a good teacher if you want a good laugh. He teacher off of a CD which is boring. He also rambles off talking about other things....His test are extremely hard and Id advise to study really hard if you want to pass.

Prof. Coggins is the best! His class was fun and I learned a lot. I had him for both lec & lab. Just be up to speed on the material before class and study.

Great Teacher! This is college so be prepared to put in a lot of memorizing for this class. Professor Coggins makes class fun with stories and jokes. Class is more like a conversation rather than just him lecturing. He finds away to include everyone.

Brother Coggins, Is a good but hard professor. He really makes you work for your grade. But he is helpful with any questions that you have. He treats everyone in the class like family and makes it for a fun environment. But make sure you study study study!!! There is alot to know in 2070. I love how he sets his lab exams up go so smoothly!!

Brother Coggins is one of the BEST professors I have ever had! Anatomy is tedious and is a lot of memorization, his personality and teaching style made every lab and lecture a great experience. We are one big family in his classes. I really wish he was teaching 2080

Brother Coggins is a wonderful professor and mentor! His class is difficult, time consuming, and at times frustrating but mainly because he makes you think and work for your grade. I earned an A in his class because I took his advice to really learn the material and find a strong study group! You'll do great if you want to!

He is an excellent professor. The best biology teacher I have ever had! Brother Coggins course is intense, but you will appreciate it in the end. He's always willing to help! Study cranial nerves, muscles (insertions & origins) & the skull! Try to get in his lab,as well. Take plenty of pics in lab. Ask questions, if you don't understand!
