This class requires alot of memorization and is not a blow off class. He changed up the format this semester though. There was a very generous curve since most students scored between 30-60 on his final. Study the power points,quizzes, the old tests he posts and the questions he asks in class. His wording on tests is a bit tricky so be careful.

teaches you only what you need to know for the test. Class is just as boring as everyone says, maybe more. Made a 70, 85, 80, and a 100 on the final. got 3 ec quizzes and made an A due to some next-level curve. Srsly, just take notes on his slides, do the chapter an ec quizzes, study old tests & use the book for just the sections he covers in class

It's very hard to understand what he says. Mumbles way too much. Monotone and VERY boring. But he records everything and uploads it to BB so attendance is not mandatory. Gives EC. Tests were kind of tricky. Study his lectures/notes and old exams!! HUGE CURVE at the end of the semester.

Never went to lecture cuz timings conflicting with traffic(commuter probs). You are kind of risking taking this as a online class since lecture quality isn't great. Overall,his tests are easy if you carefully pay attention to his lecture and memorize the slides. He is very generous. 4 bonus pts. from quizzes. Insane curve. Saw him in his undies lol

Be warned, you will get bored in class. I only attended the first day but he posts everything on BB and curves. I just went over the powerpoints and did well on the tests. Do the extra credit quizzes they'll help your grade. I did not even buy the book.

Dr. Knapp is a great professor! Sure, his lectures might be boring, but the material is interesting & his notes are exactly like the test. Know everything on the review sheets and you'll ace every test! Grading consists of in-class clicker quizzes, 4 online quizzes, and 4 exams. Take Dr. Knapp!

Super boring class. Speaks in a monotone voice the entire time. Random clickers throughout semester so coming is a must. Posts lectures online. Tests are okay. Lots of studying on your own time since usually I doze off during lecture. Has a "fun run" sorta thing during the semester but no one usually attends. Maybe 4 or 5 show up. "Meh" class.

This guy really needs to take a class in public speaking. Insanely boring; very monotones. He doesn't even look like he likes microbio at all when he lectures. He's not entirely clear at all when he lectures. Test aren't too hard but VERY detailed and maybe a bit tricky. Unfortunately, he's the only person that teaches.

Do not take him. He does not care about his students he just cares about his paycheck. I did not graduate because of him. I studied a great deal for this class and I still failed his tests. I just took the class at another college and made an A. So please take another professor he will just ruin your gpa. He should be fired.

tests are very tricky, u need to read the slides in DETAIL and watch the video lectures online to do well. The final wss hard, the lowest average all semister, also make sure you do well on the quizzes b/c they can make the difference in letter grades at the end.

Tests are extremely tricky. Not understanding at all and does not care about his students. You basically get what you get. He makes you feel intimidated and stupid when you ask him a question. Take another professor if you can.

Pretty easy class if you take the time to study. His tests can be tricky so really understand the material, don't just memorize. All of his material is online so class is optional but it helps if you use both.

Dr. Knapp is such a nice professor. He tries his best to help students and answers emails quickly. There are plenty of extra credit given. However, his tests are tricky and detailed so study hard.

Worst professor I've had at UH. Micro is ridiculously difficult. Whenever I went to ask him a question he made me feel stupid and uncomfortable. His class will put you to sleep. Exams are too tricky. Wish he would ease up.
