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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

He is a very nice guy and willing to work with you. His tests aren't easy but if you study off his study guides you'll do fine. He also gives lots of extra credit oppurtunities.

If you took a good Anatomy class in high school you will be fine. Easy class, multiple choice tests(drops lowest), extra credit opportunities, really nice guy with really long hair that flows in the wind when he runs around the track. Highly recommended, but probably not if you want to become a doctor. :)

For all yall Adult Fitness Majors. Take Functional Anatomy with Osullivan. He is basically "the easiest porfessor" The class will be very difficult. However he give lots of extracredits. You will have to read the BOOK!!!! So get ready to read a lot. The lectures are boring but if you have any question he will help you and explain you in details.

He was an excellent professor! The pace of the class is really fast and quite a bit overwhelming but he's super helpful and if you study hard and participate in all the extra credit, you will pass with a good grade.

Dr. O'Sullivan is a great guy and great professor. He is not going to tutor you through his lectures, but what college professor is suppose to? He'll give you the basic information you need over the material, but it is vital to read the book in order to pass the class. He is willing to reschedule tests and quizzes to fit your desired schedule.

Wow, this class was extremely hard. Attendance doesn't count, you watch him click through a power point and if you're lucky you'll get to see him running around the track without his shirt on. Take Miller for sure because you will get an F unless you love anatomy.
