This is a great Professor. He has passion and enthusiasm. He cares if you need asst. Uses PPT slides. I actually enjoyed Biology and now see why Chemistry is important. If you are a science major. Take a class with this Professor.

Very good teacher which actually cares if you are learning and staying with the class or not. You will study from hand outs but attendance is mandatory. You do not need the book. Quizzes every week, 3 tests which are easy if you study.

I almost got a perfect score in this class. It's ALL memorization. If you have a good memory, you are set for this class. I studied with flash cards, and I did great on almost every test or quiz. I hated Bio, but now I have a good understanding and appreciation of it. Don't buy the book! Take this class, it's not easy, but it's worth it.

It's a hard class but he's a fantastic teacher. He is easy to contact and always available for extra help and you never use the textbook.

Tons (and by tons, I mean TONS) of studying. Quizzes are fill in the blank, but almost always laughably easy as long as you study. Tests are a little more challenging and don't exactly reflect the material learned. Okay experience overall. Also, you don't need your book as long as come everyday and take notes.

Rob is just plain awesome, if you study hard, come to class and ask question when needed you'll be fine. He's the reason why I'm more interested in bio. His teaching style is impressive. Yes, his tests are hard but he'll do his best to help you out. Take Rob and be happy ;)

Best instructor I've had at Brookdale. Always on time. Always follows the syllabus so there are no surprises. Explains everything very clearly. Enthusiastic. Sense of humor. Grades all quizzes/tests as fast as any teacher I've had. Moves a little quick at times but Bio 102 had a lot of material.

Rob is the man. He made my hardest subject one of the easiest. Just memorize the notes and you'll be fine for the quizzes and test. You don't need the textbook. Great overall guy

He was awesome! I had to take this class to graduate, but he made the material easy to understand. Everything he writes on the board is on quizzes and tests, so no surprise info. I didn't need the book, it was useless. I would recommend him!

His tests are pretty hard compared to his quizzes(know your life cycles lol)however he's the best teacher I've ever had at Brookdale. So passionate about his job. If you need bio, take him and you will be able to show off your knowledge outside the class trust me.

Rob is pretty cool. He's extremely passionate about biology so he sometimes forgets that all his students are not. He lays out all the notes perfectly on the board so no need for the textbook but A LOT of studying is needed if you are not strong in bio. I raised my grade from a D to a B so I guess it wasn't too bad:) Great teacher but not an easy A

All around had an awful class with him. He's very arrogant and expected us to automatically know everything even though it was a 102 level class. I don't recommend him.

He's a great teacher and you will actually learn something in his class. Gives a whole lot of quizes but they truly help you understand his wording of questions in prep. for the tests. Only complaint is the amount of notes given during lecture, bc you dont use the book.

I don't typically like or do well in science, but Martens is the best! Makes it interesting, understandable, and most importantly, organizable. He made this class my most enjoyable of the entire semester! He's gonna tell you to buy the book. Then he'll say he knows what RateMyProfessor says, and buy it anyway. BUT DON'T BUY IT. HIS NOTES ARE PERF.

The best teacher EVER! You seriously cannot ask for a better professor. He is well organized, makes sure you know exactly what you need to know, makes it interesting, and is always willing to answer any questions.

For somebody who is not interested in the sciences, this professor made it interesting. If you study hard and ask for help when needed, you will do well. Martens is the man!
