He makes things harder than what they need to be! He doesn't test on facts he tests on concepts and principles and takes away petty points if you don't think exactly like him. Yes he's available for students who may need extra help but his help gets you no where. JUST RUN LIKE HELL OKAY. Also he's kind of rude if you have problems with clickers.

Dr. Cao doesn't go over as in depth as you need to know to do well on his exams. Except for clicker quizzes, I could have skipped every lecture class to save myself time to actually read and analyze the text book, which is what he tests on. He prides himself on being fair and I guess he is if this was supposed to be a reading comprehension course.

If you want a professor who's going to break down concepts and lectures geared towards test. JUST STAY away. He makes everything complicated for no reason his test require written responses where you lose many points for small things.Yes he tries to help you out. However this class should never be this hard, he piles on work especially in lab.RUNN!

Takes his job way too seriously. He makes everything harder than what it needs to be.Offers study sessions but its just a repeat of lectures.He isn't clear on test directions so you lose petty points for simple things.He's also the"tough luck" kind of person so he doesn't care if your clicker messes up mid-test. You will get a 0.Avoid Him!

Yes, this class is a bit tough but Dr. Cao is always there to help you if you need it. He would also start off the class with something really interesting going on in the world & stuff. No study guides for tests but this is a college course, don't expect him to hold your finger and walk you through stuff. Take responsibility for your own learning.

Wonderful professor! His PowerPoints are incredibly thorough and he has so many extra resources available to students (LEAP sessions/worksheets, bonus opportunities, office hours, etc.). It does take some effort to get an A, but it's only because the concepts are complex. He is more than willing to help and constantly encourages you to succeed.

Dr. Cao is a great teacher but it is a tough class. You will definitely learn a lot but you must keep up with the reading and go to class. He doesn't give any homework or projects but he does give pop quizzes. His class has 3 exams + the final. He wants his students to do well and is willing to help in any way. I would suggest his class!

I would encourage you not to take the course with him. He doesnt provide study materials, and the exams are usually 4-5 chapters worth of studying. He has discouraged me from being a biology major which sucks a lot, but things happen. If you plan on keeping a Bio major, get a different professor.

Dr. Cao is a great professor! Biology is not an easy subject, however he does a great job of explaining the material. His tests require that you make connections and think critically, but if you take notes during lectures and study throughout the semester this class is very manageable. I am definitely taking him for Bio 2130 next semester!

Overrall he is really nice but his class is intense. There are pop quizzes and exams that can affect your grade. If you do not study HARD you will not pass. His exams are part short answers. If you need supplemental aid such as homework or study guides do not take him because he does not give it

His lab is not the easiest but he goes into detail on everything on his quzzes & practicals in Power Point presentations. So if you don't get anything in Lecture, you'll get it in LAB. Also very helpful.

T.C. was the most helpful TA ever, not to mention the hottest. Defintely study the material, and follow his exact instructions for his papers. Show up for every class, he makes projects fun, even when outside in the rain.

Excellent TA! He is more than willing to help you. If you show interest he will remember that when grading comes around. Just go to lab and participate.
