He's a really nice easy going and patient guy. But in lecture he goes way too fast and can often be very confusing. Reading the textbook is mandatory if you want to learn but do go to lecture because he might explain something better than the book. He curved every test and he gives study guides which are fair game for the tests and final.

If you take Jim, you can't go wrong. He's the best at what he does, hand downs. No competition

You have to read the text book and study on your own for the lecture material. He is a great lab teacher and you spend most of your time learning cool new labs. He is funny and very approachable for questions all the time. Take HIM! But you got to put in your hours with the text book.

TAKE HIM! Great professor, funny and very helpful. I felt like I didn't really use my textbook and too bad I paid a lot for it. But as long as you take good notes you'll do fine without the book. He gives you a study guide and sends his powerpoint lectures. 3 Lecture exams, 1 Lab exam, lab manual is due at the end of the semester and 2 finals

Professor Dekloe is a must if you are taking microbiology. He offers study guides for exam he always says he likes the exams to be "no surprises". Use the study guides!! Hes very helpful and keeps class interesting but you need to study.

Dr.Dekloe is a very fun teacher. He wants everyone in his class to succeed. He gives 3 exams and a final and provides a study guide.The study guide is long but can be very beneficial to you. Very intelligent teacher, you definately cant go wrong with taking Dekloe for biology. The labs were also fun in his class.

TAKE HIM FOR MICRO! Nicest, smartest, best and most interesting teacher at solano.Doesn't go directly from the PPT so take good notes and pay attention-not too hard because he's really entertaining! Do the study guides and you'll be FINE. no surprises,ever. He often curves the tests too when everyone does poorly. i'd take him again in a second.

The labs in this class were actually really fun but during lectures he went off topic alot and i prefer to stay strictly on the subject. The powerpoints contain no info. they just supplement whatever he is discussing. Dekloe is good when it comes tests, gives an exam study guide and tells you what chapters to read for exams.

Best Biology teacher I've ever come across, his purpose is to teach you, not trick you. He will tell you straight out that there are no surprises in his class. Unlike many teachers, he will not guide you down the wrong path. Do your reading, study, show up to class and take notes - you won't be disappointed with DeKloe.

Dekloe is an awesome professor. He knows so much about biology as well as pop culture, history and literature,it's amazing. Anyway, by prepared to read the book for clarification of his lectures..bio 2 is a hard subject! when he gives the study guide, don't just answer them with one sentence, make sure it's thorough. Oh, and labs are fun too!

Great teacher. The subject cis really hard but his motto is that there are no surprises. he is very helpful inside of class as well as outside of class (respsonding to questions and emails and such) just be prepared to study because the material is difficult. I would definately recommend him for micro!

Great teacher. I have taken bio:1,2,4,5,16 and with multiple teachers. He was by far the best. One of the coolest teachers. You will watch youtube videos every lecture and towards the end you'll know most of them.

Material is complex, but grades generously (sometimes curves all scores up). End of chapter m/c questions are often on test. Study based on study guide: if there's something on there he didn't mention in lec, look it up in the book. Knew people who took with Re instead; Dekloe's class seemed like a lot less work. Lectures fast, so write quickly!

Dr. DeKloe's story makes you want to pursue further in your education. Labs are about eight hours long but it's really fun when your lab partners become your lunch partners as well. Your main source for information is the internet, make sure it's credible! BTW, it's OKAY to be a nerd :)

Jim is a great teacher. He takes the time to create a lecture to be fun to learn and entertaining after a long hard day at work. If you ask, he will take the time during his busy day to help you. He is a little nerdy, but I think that makes him just a little more fun!

He is such a good person and easy to approach. He is very knowledgable and understanding. He would give us extra points on the exam if he felt that the whole class was struggling. He's great!!! Take his class!!!!
