He describes what he's going to teach you the entire course, but never actually teaches anything you. He makes up for it by giving you study guides. Just take notes from the text, and ignore his rambling, and you'll do good. Don't go to lecture. You'll probably be more productive that way.

Do not take him! His lectures will put you to sleep and they do not help at all. He gives study guides for exams that include answers which are right from the tests, however, 90% of the material on the tests is not discussed in class at all!

Very boring professor, while he does know his stuff, he doesn't get it across well at all, expects minute details on exams, while general idea questions do not get asked. I'd pretty much avoid taking him if you have a choice at all. This was for summer session.

His class is pretty boring. He gives you study guide for tests. When he gives you the answers for study guide, and if that question on test, I would put the answer he gave from study guide but when i got it back it'll end up being wrong. Apparently for a few questions the answers end up being wrong (on study guide) but he still gave me the point anyways for the confusion. He approachable and tries making the class easy.

Lecture isn't very helpful for test. Just read the chapters in the book and the study guide. Note:Not all the questions in the study guide will be on the test. Lab is easy. He is approachable but not much help.

He is not a bad professor. You dont have to do much to pass with a B+ like I did. He is funny and goes over the material really slow it makes you fall behind to other Bio 2200's but at least your actually learning right? he is a good professor i barely did work always got out of class early and passed with a B+ he is very EASY!

First I'll start out by saying that he probably knows his stuff... but he has a difficult time getting it across to everyone. He gives out notes, but they are difficult to understand... so listen and take notes in the margins so you'll have an idea later. The labs are not too bad, he does not require a formal write up. STUDY for the tests!!

Where to start? Well I've never seen anyone so unorganized as him. His notes are convoluted and he contradicts himself 3/4 of the time. Most of the semester I taught the class and had to clarify his mistakes (what a joke). The questions to his exams have a zillion answers and sometimes the correct one isn't even there. Good luck w/ lab reports! Ha!

He is horrible, horrible, horrible. I mean it ladies and gentlemen. When he looks at you, you might he's looking at you but he's not. I mean the very uncomfortable. He expect you to know it all in one week. His test are very hard, trick questions,his notes has nothing to do with the test. Good luck. I been there

This guy knows his stuff but seems a little off in the head. He is really not a good teacher and is very unorganized. Be prepared to teach yourself. He gives good review sheets though. Terrible Adjunct

This professor will run a game on you if you let him. Very sneaky. He expects the impossible, when it comes to writing lab reports. Something I've been doing for a minute now. I'm not a novis when it comes to writing reports, but he doesn't know it.
