BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

WARNING!! This is an extremely difficult class, very time consuming and a lot of memorization required, you will have to draw, color, and will not be allowed to take notes. His class is with the lights out and always wants to see you engaged in the subject. Seemed more like a theology class than a biology one. Very obsessed with religion!!!

101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great professor, doesn't let you take notes because he gets you involved in the lecture. He has his own textbook/packet. It contains ALL NOTES, HOMEWORK, AND COPIES OF THE MIDTERMS/FINALS!Do not take if you have a full schedule. Might want to take a drawing class. He will make you learn. LOTS OF HOMEWORK. Willing help you if you visit his office.

Biology 101 Lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Run for your life, I advise you...DO NOT take this teacher. He does not let you take notes. He is very condescending and he is all over the place, while not being clear on the subject matter. For lab, he'll lecture for 95% of the time, while only leaving 11 minutes for you to perform the lab. His tests and quizzes are impossible. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C+

Rainbow, seems to be intelligent and knows his stuff, but he is unorganized, he doesn't require a text book just a "study packet" that he, himself wrote, It cost $80, we didn't even use the whole thing. You have to memorize everything, he won't let you take notes, horrible class! If you seriously want to learn, don't take this instructor!

Rainbow is unclear about a lot of things. His first midterm was complete memorization that we didn't learn in class. He definitely brought my gpa down. He treats his students like children and it's completely annoying!
