hsc 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

It is a very hard class but the extra credit i would take him over miller or Wortham. Mescia is probably the best to take then O'Sullivan

HSC 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C-

Really hard class. All his quizzes are extra credit, so make sure you attend classes on days you know you will be given quizzes. They really save your grade. Loved anatomy, and took it in high school and did really well. Here, I struggled just to get a C! Is not clear AT ALL on what he wants you to study. It feels like a guessing game! To much info

HSC234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hes a nice guy but the class was hard. He read off the powerpoints so it made class pointless. Do not take if you are a hands on person like me. I like full explantaions and I got nothing out of this class.

HSC230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He knows about the subject but he doesn't have the skills to be a professor. Very boring lectures you learn more by reading the book. He doesn't clarify concepts and it seems like he doesn't like to be interrupted during class. Hard and tricky tests. But so far I know that he is better than the other professors who are more strict.

HSC231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Pick another professor. I struggled for a C the whole semester. You have to teach yourself all of the material on your own because he is not good at explaining it in class. very very hard professor and trick questions on exams

Just reads off powerpoints. Not a very good educator, but a very nice guy. Recommend him, but it is a learn on your own type class

Dr. Osullivan is such a nice guy. Reads off the powerpoints, so attending class seems pointless. DO the quizzes, they boost your test grades. Tests are hard. Will bring you up a whole letter grade at the end of the semester if it showed you tried.

GIS101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Global Issues - Climate Change. He's pretty close-minded, or at least biased on this topic and targets people with different views. If you don't speak your honest opinion, then there won't be any trouble. Daily quizzes that are easy to cheat, which is what most people do - and he doesn't care. Lots of movies & only holds class for half the time.

A lot of content in not a lot of time. I've been in functional anatomy and A&P 1. He rambles a bit and the lectures are boring. Reading the book is a must and at least halfway paying attention is suggested. strongly. DO THE QUIZZES, they will save your grade. Exams are all multiple choice but not the stupid easy kind.
