If you want to pass don't take this so called prof. Also, it is clear he thinks doctors is a male field.

Read chapters before class and everything will be clearer. He gives you all the questions and answers before the tests. Learn them by heart and you ll do great. Dont take other classes if u want to get an A.

It's these kind of teachers that make the school look really bad. Also people like kuniyuki running the place makes it even worse. Really a bad teacher. I don't know how to explain how bad he is. He probably got picked on when he was younger.

Great professor!His lectures will really fall into place if you read the chapter before he starts lecturing on it. Intelligent and fun. Test are no joke, study the questions he gives you and you will do fine.

Only gives a midterm & final. Those are based entirely on banks of questions he gives you before hand. If you know those then you will do well. Quizzes on the other hand are on pathophysiology topics he gives you print outs for & you're expected to know them inside out. I wouldn't not take him again.

Takes attendance 5 minutes before class starts--marked absent even in you're on time. Teaches class as though he's speaking with other doctors, and is extremely difficult to understand as a result. Makes 224 MUCH harder than is necessary. I study very hard, and attend all classes--it still isn't enough for his unbelievable standards. DO NOT TAKE.

This Professor is one of the greatest Professors I have ever taken. Yes this is an intense class, but so is the medical field. Sofferman will aid you if you have any questions, he also challenges your mind by asking in depth questions. If you follow his study guide you will receive an A or a B no problem. He looks & sounds like Christopher Walkin

Difficult class & his teaching style isn't helpful. The PPTs/ lectures are super fast, expects you to read the book completely,& expects for students to complete & memorize 200-300 ?'s for exams & doesn't even go over those ?'s. Essay ?-type of exams. Pretty much have to teach yourself. If you're not going to teach, don't be a teacher.

This instructor is intelligent and hot in a Christopher Walken kinda way. He's got a dry sense of humor and doesn't hand-hold his students, but if you came to learn, you will from him. If you like being treated like a grown up then this is your guy. I loved his class and his teaching style - taking 224 from him in fall.

Dr. Sofferman is the BEST professor I ever had. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, respectable, and helpful. His tests are straightforward but you need to attend the class and review his class notes. He will prepare you for whatever you want to be. Take his class and you will be glad you did. Highly recommend!!

As everyone has stated, study the questions he gives you and know them and you will do fine. only had a couple labs and they are non-graded. I really enjoyed class with Dr. Sofferman.

A lot of people have negative things to say about Sofferman but the guy gives you every answer to the tests and quizzes! Yes there are about 200+ q's to study and he tests 50 but memorize every single question backwards and forward and you will get an A!

223 requires lots of study. We formed a study group meeting on Saturdays all semester and found success! Tests are challenging, but manageable. Some quizzes were overwhelming. Budget your time wisely. 5% ex. credit added to final grade for presenting a 5-pg report. Must be a good student. Challenging prof. Labs were informal and not graded.

Very challenging. He's unorganized & gives out conflicting information regarding testing, study questions. He gives 300+ questions to be completely memorized for exams and then picks 50. He intentionally misleads students on review questions, its a bit cruel. All Essay style testing. Basically teach yourself. Lecture are super fast and off topic.

I found this class to be extremely challenging. Prepare for at least 300 hundred questions to be completely memorized for exams and then he only picks 50 that you are tested on. He wants you to know all the material. If you put in the work you will pass. You basically teach yourself.Lectures come straight out of the book.
