BIO301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a good guy at heart,but he's not a really good teacher. He teaches off his head, no notes, no powerpoints. Most of his lectures are focused on one topic of a chapter only. Spent the entire semester teaching myself from youtube and the textbook.However, he is a brilliant man and I loved his personality.

Bio 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Altimar is a very nice helpful professor who always has time to explain the material. You have to work very hard to earn your grade. Read your notes and the textbook and you should be fine. I recommend him. He is a wonderful human being and I wish more professors were like him at QCC.

Bio 301 and 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had Altimari for both lab and lecture last summer. He is one of the best professor in qcc. If you want an A in his class you gotta study study study! Study from text book and notes. It's always good to study ahead of time too. No jokes.

BI-301 Lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very nice guy, but he talks about unrelated stories too much, then dismisses class early. Also, you don't complete all the experiments on the syllabus. Experiments that you do do, he leaves the class multiple times. You will need to consult YouTube on the regular to see how the experiments are supposed to go. If you do, you'll get an A like me.

great professor. i had him for lab, got a 95 average. study your notes and you will be just fine. sometimes he throws in material from left field that you didnt discuss in class but if you 90% of the material you will easily get in the high 90s. def recommend, very easy to get along with

He is such a great teacher. I had him for lab, it was my favorite class of the semester. He's so funny and you still learn. Always willing to help his students, if you're unclear about something he will go over it with you till you understand. Very nice, funny, and helpful. highly recommend him for lab!

Nice Professor talks a lot about family and other unrelated everyday lifestyle. Not good for Lecture but excellent for lab but be careful ask him questions. His exams are surprising, so study everything.Things he never mention will appear and he will say everything will be ok when its not.

Had him for lab. He is a funny and intelligent person. What ever he writes on the board is sometimes weird, so you are better off reading the lab textbook instead. His practical exams are exactly what he says will be on it. Just study hard from the lab and you will do fine.

bio302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worse professor ever. Talks more about his family than actually teaching. In order to do well in this class you must read the book every single day. Do not go by his class notes cause the test will have questions from the text-book which he doesn't go over in class. You must self teach yourself in this class in order to do well!!

bio301L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof. altimari is an easy prof. you have to study the models on the lab book and you will be fine. whatever he says to study for the exam, it will not be on the exam. he usually gives something unexpectedly on his exams. he also leaves the room when you want to be explained on the models. other than that the class is easy and funny.

Prof. Altimari is fantastic. He makes class amusing, and this is quite a feat for Anatomy & Physiology. His explanations are very clear and he is very helpful if you have questions or do not understand concepts.

Professor Altimari is truly one of a kind. He's a decent human being and he cares about his students. Make sure to read the textbook before attending class and join a study group and/or get tutoring if you need it. I did and thankfully did fairly well. *A.L.*
