Very knowledgeable. Uses k-type questions on the exam. Very clear during lectures. Is a little arrogant but means well. Lazy so he will probably cancel class here or there. Will answer questions even if he sounds snobby. Clear about what will be on the exam. Straightforward class. Will take him again.

Funny proffesor and a fun class but you have to study hard to do well. 2nd and 4th exams are the hardest. 4 non cumalative exams worth 25% each although last minute he doubled our highest exam grade thus the being 5 exams 20% each. Would recommend

Before taking this class I had no idea about anatomy but was able to pass the class with an A. As long as you read the chapters, ATTEND CLASS and take notes you will definitely pass. He basically gives you the answers to the test but you will need to make sure to understand what he's talking about. Not the best teacher when it comes to his persona.

One thing is very certain if you take Ferdinand Gomez for Foundations of Physiology: You WILL learn physiology. The class is very hard, but show up to class and take notes on EVERYTHING he says (no textbook needed)and pass. Very fun and entertaining professor, but yeah, he's hard. Though he says he doesnt, he may curve the grades at the end :D

This class is not easy but he definitely makes it enjoyable. Straight to the point and studying is a MUST. Everything is straight from the notes so don't waste time trying to read the whole text book.

Don't buy the book! When "transcribing" your notes, rewrite everything from the PPT and EVERYTHING he mentions in class, even silly stories. His tests are pretty easy. I studied the night before and a few hours before each exam and got an A every time. Test questions are directly from the lecture so DONT MISS CLASS. He's hilarious and I recommend.

Great professor. He knows what he is teaching and he loves teaching as well. Very funny and keeps you entertain the entire class. However the class is VERY difficult. You REALLY need to study like weeks before and review almost everyday. He doesn't reply to emails and PLTL don't help. The PLTL only counts to a 10% of your lower exam (not helpful)

It's a tough class, but everything on the exam will be from what he covers IN CLASS. Not the power points, not the book, IN CLASS. Take a lot of notes, re-write the notes, and study hard and you'll pass. But it is a very hard class

He comes off really sarcastic but he is very knowledgeable about the subject. Everything he says, you must write down, he will not give you anything on the test that he did not talk about. Easy A if you study hard.

Best teacher and most engaging you will ever find in any college. He will keep you entertained and in the same time teach you. How awesome can you even get than him? I loved his class. His material will be hard if you don't pay attention. He explains his materials very throughouly, I give you the best teacher of FIU can ever give. He's passionate.

He gives you EVERY SINGLE ANSWER to his tests in his lecture. As long as you take good notes and review them you will get an A on this test. That doesn't mean its an easy course, it's very detailed. Don't let "foundations" fool you. He is very engaging and I honestly love going to his class. Don't buy the book, you won't need it at all.

This professor is engaging and challenges his students. If you want to learn, this is the class for you. If you're not going to put the time and effort to take good notes and study, don't take this course. You will fail if you don't study, period. The ones that complain are the ones that never study and expect a good grade. He knows the material.

His class was exactly was structured in a perfect way. He really gives you all of the answers to the tests in his lectures, it is up to you to study however. I recommend taking him. He has a rude sense of humor but the class was enjoyable.

You will LEARN your anatomy. Gomez makes his class interesting, enjoyable, and unlike other professors who just sit there and read and powerpoint without engaging with their students, Gomez is interactive all through. Like any other class, study and you will get an A on every exam. 100% recommend him!

Crystal clear and structured class. All tests are MC. They're tough, but he gives you everything you need to succeed, word for word -- you just have to study. Answers any questions after lecture. Great sense of humor. I left the class feeling twice as smart as I did beforehand. Can only speak for myself, but his teaching style is perfect for me.

I learnt more Histology with Gomez in his once a week 1hr long lab than I ever did with Terreros in her lectures. The lab exams are very easy. Write down everything he says in class. All you have to do is be able to recognize the figures he puts on the test. He is super funny & one of the best teachers at FIU. I'd take him again in a heartbeat.

You cannot slack off in this class and you must study the images every week and not wait 'till the last minute. Prof. Gomez will expect more maturity since this is a upper division lab. Pay close attention and take notes. There are two practicals: a midterm and a final. I ended up with a 97% and a 99% so I got an A in the lab.

STAY AWAY. the material is not that hard to understand its the way he formats it on his exams. He thinks hes teaching a MED school class and he tries to change everyones thoughts about nursing. you do learn a lot in his course but he pushed all 3 test into the last two weeks of school which sucked! 4 exams in total.
