305 307 311 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

Great teacher! All of the classes have had side-notes. 10% of questions on test and exams will make you think he might be tricking you, but he is not. It is all very cut and dry questions that he always rephrases for exams. Just study the outlines and skim the books. Pull out info that matches his notes. Record lectures and you will get an +A!

BIOT307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

I finished the biotech program and had Dr. Kubo for all of the classes except 301. GREAT TEACHER!! So smart, fun, and enthusiastic. Is helpful in class and out, he absolutely wants his students to succeed with future careers in the biotech field. He puts a lot of heart in labs and you learn quite a bit that you wouldn't with other bio classes.

I was working so I did not get to study like I would have liked. Still got a C. Learned a lot in this class. I have never taken any Bio classes before so it was completely new to me.

After this class I will now be a biotechnology major. I have had no prior experiences beside hs bio and chem and that was over 10 years ago. I forgot most of it. Still got an a and the hand outs let me freshen up on stuff that I forgot. Was a great online class.

The class was pretty intersting. All you have to do is read and go over the study guides from his power points which he always prints out for you. Labs are simple and fun haha you play with fire almost everyday. GO THROUGH THE STUDY GUIDE and learn it and you will be fine. Worked for me and i got an A lol

BIOT307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Took Biotechnology in Today's Society online. Had lots of work but if you put in the time, you'll get an A. About 2 quizes, tests, every week a discussion board and a problem-set (which was the hardest thing of the class). Book: useless. I was lost a bit since this class kind of informally expects you to already have a Biotechnology background.

If you want an A, you should review the learning objectives, notes, and use the book as a reference. You should always use his office hours because he is extremely helpful.

I took this class and 307 online. I found both very interesting and informative. Hard to comment too much on Kubo from an online course, but he put together the online class well and I am interested in taking him in person.

BIOT305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

For a 1 unit class this class was a lot of work. Homework for this class should be cut in half. This class is very time consuming. He is very helpful, lenient with deadlines, and responds quickly to e mails. Class is OK,his other biotechnology classes are more interesting.Tests/hmwk are on a harder side, in my opinion.Would recommend to others.

Dr. Kubo is a great teacher & very knowledgeable! His tests are very fair & completely in line with his lecture slides. Everyone who doesn't have an A or B is lazy/probably didn't study & are upset that it wasn't an "easy A." FYI: You need to work to get a good grade, especially if you need to know the material for a future career. Highly recommend

BIO440 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Teacher that cannot teach is not a Teacher. I'm a Nursing major and this class was just a waste of time and my 4.0 GPA is also gone, unfortunately. He won't prepare you for the tests. If I have to repeat this class for a better grade, would take Miller. Why was he getting good reviews? Many students complained (not just me). Forget "A"; try for B's

I would never say anything bad about the teacher, but this time I have to. After reading all of the review I chose him and I was wrong. He is a great guy, but he can't teach and you will be lost on his tests. Some of the material you will see the first time ever. He grades his tests very hard and no curve at all. Don't know any one with "A"

he's a nice guy, but his tests are really hard. he teaches one thing then on his tests he asks something way off his lecture notices. I do not know what happened to him this semester. I feel very disappointment about him grading the tests. GOOOOOOOD-Luuuuck.
