"Hilarious"

I only showed up to take the exams and got an A in the class. You will not learn Genetics with Tracey, he doesn't teach. His class is basically a space for him to socialize with other people. He is a nice funny guy, but not exactly a professor. If you really want to learn Genetics, you'll have to study on your own. Study, do Clutch and pass :)

pcb 3063 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

No need going to class, he talks about useless stuff. I passed with the help of Clutch, I'm sure class helps a bit. He's funny and if you're sensitive don't take it to heart. He has tests graded a few hours later. Gives a huge curve, probably because the averages are always in the 60s. Jokester, but clutch taught me everything.

"Hilarious"

Tracey seems like a great person to get to know outside of the classroom. While in class though he easily & frequently goes off topic to tell stories and jokes. You can tell he is extremely smart but is so poor at explaining the material. Won't learn about genetics; do CLUTCH if you want to actually learn and get an A in the class.

"Get ready to read" "Hilarious"

Tracey is a really nice guy, but horrible when it comes to actually teaching. His lectures start on track and not fifteen minutes into it he goes completely off track and tells you his life story. The answers to his quizes are all online. Test banks and CLUTCH are a must. You'll probaly learn more from Bio Lab than in his lectures.

"Clear grading criteria" "Hilarious" "Would take again"

He's a good guy with a pretty entertaining personality. He doesn't teach thoroughly and gets off topic a bit, so you have to study on your own. But overall, I'd take him again.

PCB 3036 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

attendance is useless. He is mean when you visit him during office hours. Don't take PLTL, everyone gets credit for it regardless!He never talks about anything in his lecture that has to do with the exams. I got a B only because i did CLUTCH. just avoid.

Genetics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Attendance is futile. The class is pretty easy, but if you really want to learn he doesn't actually teach well at all.

It's not just about memorizing his old exams, you have to understand the concept behind each question. He has a unique sense of humor which many people dislike, but if you're going to a class to blame a mediocre academic performance on the teacher's personality, you're a moron. Relatively easy class as long as you try at least a bit.

He is intimidating to talk too. Don't expect to learn too much from him because he continuously goes off topic or is talking about biology that will not be on your test. He cracks all of jokes especially about women. He is very hard to take seriously and the tests are easy if you have the test banks.

Tracey is a nice guy and helpful in his office hours, but his lectures suck. You won't learn much. But, his online quizzes and tests come straight out of a test bank so just read the chapters and study the test bank, and do PLTL to opt out of the final, and you'll get an A.

He does not teach at all. I did not attend class and still got an A. He's a terrible teacher but his tests are really easy as long as you read the textbook. He tries to help students independently but do not rely on him or his lectures!

Don't even think about taking Bio with him. On the first day of class he said, "I get paid to come here and do nothing but crack a few jokes, you guys have to do all the work." Going to his lecture is pointless all he does is talk about his daughter or talk about old stories about his past. Stay away from Tracey!

Tracey is a good professor. I was able to pass his tests mainly because of his office hours and how helpful he was so for sure go to them!

I have no idea where this guy gets his questions from. I think I learned more about his daughter than I did about actual biology. He's very rude. If you can help it, don't take him! Take PLTL. You're gonna need it.

Tracey is a trip. I only went to class about 2 times and for the exams. I don't know what people are talking about when they say they used the book. His tests and the answers are completely off of what tracey thinks, and god knows what that is. Visit him during office hours and get him to remember you by name. You'll be fine.

He is a nice person and is quite entertaining so class is not completely boring. However, his lectures do not help, but he'll post them online anyways. As long as you have the book and take the time to read you should be fine. There are online quizzes every week for 2 chapters. Do PLTL to avoid the final, it'll save your life!
