Contrary to what others say, I think Dr. Long is awesome. Yes, his class is challenging but it's not impossible. You do have to study on your own but once you review the material everything from lecture makes perfect sense. It's a difficult class but you learn SO much! Dr. Long is a good dude.

Don't miss two lectures in a row, you'll never catch up! Lectures tend to follow powerpoints pretty well, however he adds extra information during class. Tests aren't too bad if you dedicate the time to look at the study guides. Tempting class to blow off, DON'T if you want a good grade.

He's filled with knowledge, but not the greatest teacher. Definitely a lot of independent work and it's basically all up to the student to do the work. The labs are extremely easy though!

Very difficult course but not much is taught in lecture. Very vague and unclear in explanations.

Not such a great course. Stood up at the front and talked at us the whole time. He has a wealth of information but a weird way of teaching it.

great class if you have self-discipline. go to class, study the powerpoints and practice tests, and just do well in lab. he is funny if youre paying attention. getting an A is do-able. just be involved. a lot of the people that complain dont put in the effort

Read the textbook, you pretty much have to teach yourself. He is so boring and way too smart. He assumes you understood everything the first time. Class moves quick. Pay attention. His tests are hard, but the finals are based on previous tests.

Not easy an easy class to be sure. Lot's of information and much of it is quite complex. Dr. Long made it interesting and he has a fun and off-beat sense of humor. I'm looking forward to 222. O.G.

Uses wikipedia and an out-of-print textbook as his primary sources. Nickel-and-dimes you when grading :/

Doesn't explain concepts well. Uses a lot of jargon, and doesn't explain anything well. When he lectures on something you actually might know, his explanation confuses the hell out of you. Avoid even if you have to wait a semester.

He is very knowledgeable however his way of teaching is not the best (in my opinion). This course required a lot of time and effort and one can do well but he is very detailed oriented and knocks off points if you miss a detail or two.

He does not explain things clearly. He teaches more human phys than animal phys.

ANAT/PHYS was super easy with him. He is very boring, but very nice. He is really trying his hardest and classes in college aren't taken for prof.'s personalities. His tests are super easy b/c he bases them all off previous exams, which he gives you access to. A & P is easy, if you think it's hard b/c of him, you need to realize this isn't for you.

Worst teacher I have ever had. He doesn't answer your questions clearly, the class is extremely boring, and he mumbles when he is talking in front of the class. Way too much studying and memorization involved. He is absolutely terrible.

If you can read the book on your own, youll do fine. This sucks for someone in my situation, I cant read.

Not a good experience, poor communication skills, you'll only excel in his class if you can study on your own
