zoo4733 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B-
"Clear grading criteria" "Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass."

He use to be a good teacher but now he's cocky so his lectures are dreadful. He is clear and if you can memorize everything then the class isn't too hard. Got Bs studying two or three days before. If he had a better personality he would be much more respected because he does know what he's talking about, but he's attitude is ridiculous.

Easy class if you have a good memory.And by good, I mean photographic. Got As on his exams, so doable. Doesn't have the best personality. Doesn't like stupid people.

Pcb2099 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Transcribe, transcribe, transcribe! He is very straightforward. Go to class,take good notes, and pay attention. Exams are straight from his power points, no book needed. Super easy if you're good at memorization. His stories help you remember things

ZOO4733 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

He says he gives you the answers to the test but in fact he just gives you a bunch of content like any other professor. The class itself is boring since its all memorizing and there are no skills involve in that. Do not take over the summer unless its your only class.

He is a great professor! Very fair, and cares about students. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very detailed. All exam questions come from his PPs. Record his lectures; it helps A LOT! Go to class! Not an easy A, but not impossible to get one.

ZOO4743C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is very knowledgable, The one thing I didnt like about his class is that he only gives 3 tests including the lab practical final! Your grade is made up of only this!! He wants you to transcribe everything. This class is not easy. He curves each test but, the person with the highest score gets the 100. He is a little weird, goes off on tangents.

He's a funny man and has a dry sense of humor so I was able to enjoy his class despite it being a night class. The book was useless because his tests were straight from his notes. TAKE GOOD NOTES! He's fair and curves. I didn't take PLTL and I turned out with a B+. Not impossible.

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.
