BIOL 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

So... Dr. Neilson. He's a good teacher, but the tests are confusing. Yes he gives you a study guide, no you can't follow it efficiently. The study guide makes sense after you take the test. The essay is easy, just do it. And take advantage of his office hours.

Highly recommend this professor. Offers 3 extra credit opportunities (10 pts to final grade each) and basically spells out what will be on the test (study guide answers all the questions). Really good professor and lets class out early a good bit. Occasional quiz but like the tests he gives you a study guide with all the information needed.

BIO 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Neilson was very nice and funny but his class was so confusing. Although he does give study guides out they are very complicated and hard to follow. He gives "bonus points" which are helpful. He isnt very good at teaching the content he gets side tracked but he is a great person. He is willing to help you and cancels class often.

BIO 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Hands out study guides, but they aren't always clear. Grades the paper fairly easily, and there are extra credit opportunities. He's hard to read, and you never know what you are going to get. He'll spend entire class periods talking about stuff that won't be on a test at all. Definitely not hard, but not super easy either.

Dr. Neilson hands out all of his power points in class. He also gives study guides with the specific information that will be on the test. There are options for extra credit and he is very helpful. His lectures are pretty boring, but it is fairly easy to make a good grade in his class.

BIO150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely loved him! He is such a sweet person and is willing to do whatever to help you! Notes are printed for you and he gives you a study guide with all of the answers for each test. He's extremely laid back and often lets class out early or cancels all together. He is by far my favorite professor!

He is an awesome speaker, so you won't fall asleep in his class. He hands out notes and his tests are easy if you look over the study guide.

BIO150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Neilson is such a great teacher. He really knows what he's talking about and is always willing to help if you don't get it. He makes really corny jokes in class and then laughs at himself. Be sure to ask him about your grade when you get a paper back because he raised my grade 5 points from a B to an A just because my friend asked about hers.

Dr. Neilson is a very kind man. His tests are fairly easy and he gives a lot of extra credit so it's very hard to not get at least a B in his class.

Dr. Neilson is a great professor! Biology, and all sciences, are one of my weaker subjects. Dr. Neilson really took the time to help all the students, answer questions, and wanted us to do well. He made the class interesting and kept my attention all semester. I would take Dr. Neilson again for any and all sciences possible!

BIOL150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Really nice guy but his tests will KILL YOU. He gives handouts and whatnot, but it doesn't help because he covers too many chapters. You will go through over 20 chapters in a semester. It's just not possible to learn everything. Only take the class if you like to learn and want to learn. If you're slack, pick someone else. The textbook is needed.

Neilson is so cool and so nice! He usually lets you out early and on Fridays, he shares little tidbits that are actually kind of interesting. He gives you a lot of information to help you understand each chapter but make sure you study! I would definetely recommend him.
