BIOL2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I don't recommend the online class at all!Prof. Bates can be helpful,responding to your emails quickly.You have to typed the answers for the homework straight from the book(in every detail).Proctored tests are ridiculously hard!Some questions cannot be answered even with open book. Tests are off the chain!Take the class on campus not online!

Took online. Hard tests, students are expected to learn the material straight from the book. He provides no additional help to learn the content. Take someone else if you can.

Good teacher, I found him easy to work with. Homework assignments are detailed, basically copying the text book on to an answer form. Tedious work. But you do still have to read the text to make a decent grade on the test. He finds minute details to question you over

BIO2402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took this class through course campus. I dont know how much influence he had in deciding the exam questions. The home work is like rewriting the whole book because he wants you to answer all the objective questions at the start of the chapter in great detail. The exams are done at ECC or NLC and some are hard if you havent read the book in detail.

I took Prof Bates' online biol 2401. His tests are taken in the testing center, and they are pretty hard.

I took his web based Anatomy and Physiology class. To get all of the points for the homework very good and long explainations are expected. The Homework and Pretests are a good indication of what will be on the protored test, but some questions are from out of left field. They come from obscure parts of the text book so you must read it.

Scit1407 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Bates means well, but this class is very difficult. I would never take his class. He doesn't help. If you ask a question he gets mad. In labs the teachers are worthless. They just sit there. My god what a waste of time and energy. VERY hard stay away

Prof. is really the best. he enjoys teaching. His class helped me a whole and in my program now as a nursing student. Ever since i did his course, i have been making A's in all my science courses.He is very popular and you really have to register early because his class gets filled within 30 mins of open registration.
