This man was literally the worst professor i have ever had. He was so rude and unfriendly. If you approached him to ask a question or to better understand what to do in the class he responded with 'i dont have a crystal ball".. most of the class failed. DO NOT TAKE HIM. I had the worst experience at community college, and I go to a high university

HE IS THE MEANEST TEACHER IVE EVER HAD. Not understanding in the slightest / extremely condensending. I don't know how Nassau hasn't taking action yet. It's ridiculous. No curve. So don't even bother relying on that.

This guy isnt a bad professor. NO HW!! but review on your own after class, and study for 2-3hrs before a test and you'll get 90s. Quiz every lab, you can literally study for 15min before lab starts because he is always late and get 100s on them.

Great teacher but serious! If you want to pass you have to study and be on top of your game. I recommend this teacher because hes not a push over, if u want to lean something take his classes.

Biersuck is never nice. he's full of sarcasm and makes you feel silly most of the time, but his lectures are very clear. you have to study if you want to pass. his class is interesting. He has a 0 tolerance level so if you're late or not wearing a lab coat, you'll be kicked out of class. just read book and study for lab quizzes and you'll be fine!

He is a horrible teacher. Constantly says, You should already know that/ You should have learned that before you came to class. Hardly curves the tests. If he curves it and you find a question that was wrong he won't give more points b/c he already curved it. Take with another teacher!

He is not a bad lecturer. His tests are IMPOSSIBLE. He doesn't curve the tests fairly. He also expects you to know a lot walking in the door. Not going to be an easy class with him as the teacher.

Spoke to the class as if we were a group of morons. Wasn't afraid to belittle people who didn't know the answer. Acts aggravated if you ask him a question which was often as we basically had to teach ourselves cat anatomy from a black and white, hand drawn lab book. He seems like he could have a good sense of humor but never showed it in our class

I took Anatomy with Biersuck and it was a difficult class. His lectures are not quite clear so make sure to write down everything he says. Lecture tests were tricky but lab practicals are pure memorization. Got a B+ but had to work for it.

An easy class made difficult. He is a good person; easy to talk too; and makes time to clarify things during office hours. However, his lectures are boring and insufficient: textbook and notes are required if you want an A/B. Lab exams are easy, but preparing for them is tedious. Basically, make time to study, or fail or receive an unwanted grade.

professor is ridiculous. he refuses to help, and goes way too fast in his lectures. Lectures rarely pertain to the exams given. lab tests are fair, because he doesn't write those. when asked to slow down, he gets annoyed. what is the point of attending lectures? i looked forward to taking this class before i encountered this guy
