I couldn't believe how much DeGrauw was helpful with office hours. If you ask for help and study, he is willing to do A LOT to help you.

If you're trying to decide what professor to take for A&P at PCC then STOP what you're doing & register for Ed's class. I promise, you won't be disappointed. Yes, Ed is hard but he will prepare you for future medical ventures like you can't imagine! He cares about his students & will answer any question. All in all, an OUTSTANDING professor.

Ed is amazing with a love of A&P. His followers are VERY true to him and I recommend him to anyone I can. I have taken the entire series from him and this term I have really missed Ed! Yes, he is difficult; however, he WILL prepare you for any health field you are going into. If you are taking A&P at PCC or PSU, TAKE IT FROM ED. I promise.

BI 231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Ed is a great teacher. Comes across as a jerk sometimes in class, but very helpful in person. Cares about the students and their success. Teaches from powerpoint. Tests are VERY difficult. Makes recordings of his lectures available (if you buy the subscription service with the text). Study harder for this class than you've ever studied before.

My experience was DeGrauw makes learning A&P harder than it has to be. Not enough attention to basic structure & function. Way too much focus on MICRObiology and PATHOphysiology. I earned an A only by relying on the text (which DeG discourages use of) and a good Lab Instructor (Richardson). Enthusiastic, but NOT recommended.

Ed is an excellent professor. He gives examples that are relevant & makes jokes to help you remember things. He is willing to repeat things until you understand it. If you utilize his help, he goes above & beyond to help you to do the best you can do in his course. His tests only cover what he covers in lecture so use the book as a reference.

Ed always takes time to answer questions and has an obvious love of his subject. makes himself available out of class and doesnt make you feel dumb when you are unable to grasp a concept. This class is no joke in workload: STUDY! tests are practice critical thinking tests; be prepared to think rather than spit up facts. grades on curve

Ed is great. One of the best instructors I have ever had (I have multiple undergrad & grad degrees). He really cares about his students and wants you to succeed, which is why his tests are so hard. He really tries to prepare students for success in their future programs. Listen to his lectures, use the ppts, and talk to him and you can succeed.
