Easily one of the greatest professors I have had. He is extremely helpful and will do anything to make sure his students achieve! Great guy in and out of the classroom!

He is a great guy. He really tries his best to explain everything. I just didn't like it when he would agree with something a student was thinking even if it wasn't what we should have been learning just because it "could" happen. We need to be certain what to know about. But, he is definitely on the student's side and gives lots of extra credit.

Great teacher! I think the students in my class are the idiots because they make him go way off topic and confuses everyone. I'm a bio major and given the opportunity I will take him again even if I have to spend more time studying that time sleeping lol

Very nice. If biology is not one of your strongest subjects, take him. He explains in terms that non-science people understand and he realizes that all of us are NOT science majors. If you want the grade, you have to do the work, but he is the best bio 101 prof. (for beginners) at state.

This teacher is probably the most sexiest teacher on campus, however he is so intelligent that he is difficult to understand. He is aware of this though. His grading is very fair. Nice guy.

He is not fair when it comes to schedule conflict if you have to miss he class for another class for only one time.. he is a little on the "i am better than you side." His test has nothing to do with his lecture class, go by the book and study and you will be fine. Wouldn't take him again!!!

I had him for bio101 and micro. I got an A in micro and I'm an idiot when it comes to science. He was very helpful, but stay on his good side. If you need a test pushed back...ask.. he just might say yes!

Dr.Ford is always provocative,never boring. He is an excellent and sensitive teacher and a master at making biology make sense to the non-science major.

He needs to make sure he slows down and clarifies, which he doesn't.. At some points he will review.. But be prepared to fail tests if you don't study everyday..

He is very hard, and if you do not want to spend you life studying day in and day out and still fail your tests then do not take him.

He can be sarcastic at moments when he gets nervous He is very INTELLIGENT Although he cant always portray what he is trying to teach. The best part about his class is the lab and HEATHER WARNER teaches it. Another good thing is that he offers extra credi
