"Respected by students" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

Best bio teacher ever! I plan to take him for upper level bios. Don't bother getting a text book, everything is from his power points. I took this class in 6 weeks and even though it was fast he was very clear on what he was looking for in tests and quizzes. As long as you pay attention in class and take notes you'll pass easily.

BIO207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

nice teacher, but hard exams. study his power points and you should be OK for test time. Material is alot and involved but study each section as its covered and you should be fine. he encourages the class to get involved in lessons and stays after to go over anything with you. take him if you can. he explains material well. id take him again

BIO 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

He is hands down the best biology professor ever as well as the best professor at Brookdale. All you need to do is copy the notes he writes on the board/ study them, and you should be able to pass all the quizzes and exams. Super easy in my opinion. This guy deserves a medal just for being an awesome professor.

This professor was really helpful. His tests and quizzes are straight from the PowerPoints that he prints out for you. If you study you can do really well. He is a really good professor and I would recommend him for biology.

Rob was a really great professor and was really knowledgeable about everything he taught. Attendance was super important because there is so much info in one class. Beware that although Rob is a great teacher he is not flexible with grades and you get what you get. Overall, really enjoyed his class and he made a subject I hate very interesting.

Rob is one of the best teachers in this college. He is so knowledgeable about biology and truly cares about his students.You do not need to text. He writes all notes on the board and it all appears on exams (4) and quizzes (13)He drops the 3 lowest quiz grades. As long as you study his notes you will excel in this class. Huge help, and great class

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.

Biol 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

BIO 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

BIO 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

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.
