BIO105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hard grader and not many grades. Expects a lot of reading but tries to be helpful in clarifying. Generally funny and cool tempered and out of nowhere blows up. Overall pretty good but tough (as is the class).

He is a very brilliant man. At the beg of the semester he will give you all the concepts he will test you on. Class material might not even be on the test. Only the concepts. Doing the concepts and reading the book will get you an A. His exams are graded out of 60, but you can get upto 68 usually.

BIO106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Benington understands all the topics in class extremely well. He also expects you to know them just as well as he does. The classes are very defendant on the text book. The only problem is, he is terrible when it comes to extra help. He just yells at you and puts you down when you go to his office hours

great professor, cares about students, expects a lot from the class, uses objectives but youre better off reading the whole chapters instead, go to him with any questions and you will get an answer, each test has 6-8 extra credit points, lab factors into his class grade, sit in the front and participate A LOT

TERRIBLE professor. Uses his class merely to boost his own ego. Take Bio somewhere else if you'd like to avoid being "talked at" for the entire class and would rather not watch him sweat.

Benington is an excellent professor. He is very helpful and clear. He provides students with outlines and objectives that show exactly what will be tested on exams. He does expect a lot, but he will make you learn the material and you will enjoy learning it.

Clare 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

One of the better Natty World teachers. Always took the time to see how we were responding and learning from his teaching methods, and was open to new ideas and available for outside help. Engaging, very intelligent. If you put in the work expected for the course, no matter who your professor is, you will do fine.

Dr. Benington is a brilliant scientist and teacher. His curiosity is phenomenal. When a man as smart as he is makes you feel like you have raised a great question, it inspires you to continue learning. He is interested in everything and has the biggest record album collection I have ever seen.

Great Man, Great Professor. Not like you have a lot of choice at Bonas anyways, but he is brilliant and humorous. He does expect significant effort from his students.
