BIO231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Guy is very good at involving the class in his teaching process. He teaches you a lot, strictly abide by the syllabus. Hes tough at times but very fair and will help you out, take the SI sessions. I took him for a summer class and enjoyed it. Would take him again.

Bio107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is seriously easy. I don't know why people are saying this class is hard in any way. You answer the questions at the end of the chapter for 20% of your grade, seriously? I haven't done that since middle school. I took this class over the summer for transfer credit and got an A with very minimal work. He's a nice enough guy and good lecturer.

BIO120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took him for Biology. He is definitely not the "coddling" type. He expects you to be in class no matter what. His lecture is very interesting, he uses real-life examples to illustrate what he's talking about. There is a lot of review before the exams, which is very helpful. He's tough, but a great teacher.

BIO1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He can definitely be rude. He is a nice guy but doesn't want to get to know you or you know him. He puts you to work the second you arrive until departure time. Notes on the board are illegible. He keeps you busy. Tests are fair but a lot of material is covered. Keep up you will do fine. But, he definitely is RUDE and can be insulting.

BIO101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

All-around great teacher. Kept lectures interesting, made it fairly easy to keep up with your work, and was always willing to answer questions. Literally NO IDEA why people are complaining about him being mean. He's very fair and often entertaining. He's not going to treat you like a baby, but is never rude. A++ teacher!!!!

Good guy, straight forward, non-coddling. He has his points and gets to them. Not sure why people are crying about him being rude, haven't seen that. He repeats things from previous weeks to help you see how they're related to what you're working on then (good technique).

I took this class and he was not a favorite of the student, ALTHOUGH, students don't follow directions, and he got angry. If you are smart enough to do what is required in the class, he was great. But if you pass in papers late and don't study like he tells you to, then it's your fault. I really enjoyed this class.

SC2100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He can come off a little rude but if you go and do your work...you'll get a good grade. He pretty much grades on the fact that you did the work and its in his hand on time. He writes notes on the board and give study guides...what more can you ask for?

Intro to Bio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Definately not a favorite with the students in my class. Kind of rude and condescending, impatient. Not a bad guy, per se, but he could use some tact. I'm glad the semester is over.

I took this class after being out of school for over three years. I thought he was very nice and fair. Assignments were easy and tests not too difficult. Just go to class and do your work and you'll be fine.
