Bio 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Pop quiz master" "Hilarious" "Lectures are long"

He's not very reliable when it comes to replying to emails. He's pretty funny while he teaches. Too much material to study for, weekly quizzes, one exam is based on 6 chapters, lab attendance is a MUST since there's daily quizzes. Attendance is CRUCIAL on first two weeks or else he'll drop you and give it to the next student on the wait-list.

Dr. Collins class is not easy. You have to study A LOT. You don't really need the text book. Everything on the exams is in his power points. He is very clear and will answer any question you have without making you feel stupid. His lab however requires more homework than other instructors. No study guides. The man loves bugs! Very smart!

He is a great teacher! In order to get an A study the power points and especially text book! He helped me get more interested in biology, I didn't get a A but that was on my part for not studying as much, but he is very fair, I recommend studying the chapter very well before going in to lecture, I mean really getting the just and you will pass

I never opened the text book and got by with a C but did study notes. Study is crucial for success. I never missed class. Lab is easy. He drops lowest two quizzes and one test.

Definitely a hard class. Lab wasn't very hard. The midterm and final in lab were open book but his lecture tests were very hard and we weren't given a study guide. Only take this class if you have the time to study and put the effort in.

He was not the best teacher. He rather talk with the students that focus on work. He is nice, but the tests are unrealistic. I studied very hard but what we had to study was almost never on the tests. I wouldn't take him if I were you...

Take a different teacher!!! Took him in the summer and he was horrible! Test questions are unnecessarily confusing. Class average was a low C. Boring lectures and the book was hardly used. He just expects you to memorize every single detail in his lecture powerpoints. Wouldn't even give higher grades to borderline students. AVOID THIS GUY!!!

Collins is a great guy and prof. The poor ratings are from people who didn't do much. Lectures are from the book but in different order. Very helpful, attentive, approachable & funny. No study guides just go over the labs and powerpoint and you should be fine. Highly recommend using the book it makes things easier. Collins keeps it 1HUNNA!!! GBE

Dr. Collins is an amazing teacher. had no clue about the world of biology until I took his class. Study and listen during lectures, all tests go along with lecture and assigned chapters, no hidden bs.

I love the subject so much so the lectures were very interesting. The tests were somewhat hard but your golden if you study the powerpoints and read the chapters once. He helps you out with extra credit after the tests and is very nice if you dont understand a concept.

I was really looking forward to this class and Im sooo glad I got Collins!! Lectures were always funny and interesting, and if you need more real life examples to compare topics to, just ask, hes really good at trying to explain...and that curve he grades on wasnt too shabby either! I really loved this class, wish he was teaching Earth Science. =o)

Great teacher. Very clear in lecture. Study your notes and pay attention in lab and you will do fine. Very lenient. Wish he was teaching 170.

Dr. Collins is an outstanding professor. He knows what he is talking about! He spends a lot of time preparing his lectures and is frequently available to talk with students. He cares about each student and wants them to succeed. Take his class and you won't be disappointed!

Prof. Collins was very personable but not the greatest lecturer/teacher. He reads straight from powerpoint and since tests and quizzes are all based on lecture, you spend the whole time writing and not really listening. Textbook unnecessary but you better study your notes often and know them inside and out if you want a good grade. Hard class.

Good teacher, but poor teaching skills. Every class, he reads the power points, students are busy to copy ppts. There is not time to listen what he talks about. The power points and tests are totally different!

His exams were pretty hard, he didn't go over all the stuff over lecture and expects you to know it all. eh, don't take if you don't need too
