The most amazing professor I have ever taken!!! Seriously wonderful! Not easy though, you really have to put in the work to obtain a good grade. Read the book before class, ask questions and study!! Nobody better to take a class with!

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.

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.

BIOL224 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

Biol 224 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

AP 223 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B-

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
