Bio 196 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B
"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Hilarious"

Mixed review,he is super cool. Makes lectures enjoyable,funny yet relatively confusing too. Moves quickly before the class has a clear grasp on topic. MC tests 60 ques. worded in a confusing-misleading manner. Best advice-record lectures,replay back often,memorization will not help-must understand processes. Take chem n bio189 prior as help. Study!

"Amazing lectures"

Great Professor!! Young, hip, and hilarious. He made lectures fun and interesting. I'm honestly sad it's over. Need to go to every class and you need to do the work. This class is not easy but he made it fun.

"Hilarious" "Would take again" "Gives good feedback"

Great professor! He enjoys teaching, very willing to help, and answer any questions you might have. Go to class, take good notes, and review his power points (which he uploads). You can also record his lectures if that helps you. You don't need the book, but can use it as supplement. He's very funny too and not too bad to look at either.

Bio 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great Profeasor, challenging class but i got an A. Upside he really wants u to succeed and is there if u need him. if u put in the time u'll do fine. Tests are insane, u have to understand the material not just memorize. Drops ur lowest test grade. Works off PowerPoint, iclickers, book not mandatory but helps. Gladly take him again!

I just found out I got an A in this class. If I can I'm sure anyone can. I don't know why people would think he's hard. He gives you everything you need to do well, but if you don't want to actually figure things out for yourself then you should take someone else. Great professor, great class.

BIOL196 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Rhett has passion for what he teaches, but students beware. Attendance is a must to pass this class. His exams are extremely difficult and do not follow his power points. I suggest reading the book and utilizing the practice tests.

This is the only science class i've ever had and it was definitely HARD. But, I think he did a good job making it interesting and explaining things. He's also kinda funny which helps. I just wish he had extra credit and more reviews!

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Umm...no. Sure he's a genuine guy, but that's not going to give you a good grade. He admitted he doesn't teach BIO 101 which is why the class is hard. He goes WAAAY too fast in notes. He doesn't even let you finish or think. And he doesn't post notes until Fri. His notes are all over the place. iClickers help/ruin ur grade. Better attend!

BioL 196 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

It took me a while to really start doing well in this class. He really does expect a lot from you in studying, but he's a great teacher. You must come to class, but also a lot of outside studying to do well on the exams. Very easy to talk to, and pretty funny at times. Good for lab too.

Very enthusiastic and excited about what he teaches, but he expects you to be the same way and also to work hard outside of class. Exams are not simple. Organized, uses some white board projector. Notes download off of a website. Also uses iClickers for quizzes. Would also highly recommend for lab.

Great teacher. Bring a recorder like your smartphone. Sit in the front, take notes. You dont need the book but it helps. Not an easy A but very doable. His tests dont have ridiculous questions, they are very palatable. Put the time and effort in the class and youll be fine. No one got anywhere sitting on their but, except Honey Boo Boo.

I would agree with most comments here. He is excellent, but not near as hard as some people say. It just isnt the kind of class you can ignore. He makes you think and you have to be able to really think about the stuff to do well on the tests. I loved the class and would recommend.

Honestly one of the best biology teachers ever. His class isn't really hard if you study, the test might be something to watch out for. He's really helpful, and funny. I recommend him as a lab instructor as well.

BIO189 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His class is up beat, he encourages the use of recorders, quizes are takin with the iclicker almost every class, but even if you get the answer wrong you get credit for being there, im in his class noe, he will go over any questins you have! All in all he keeps it interesting! Material is hard in nature, I got a B on the first exam and D on the 2nd

Professor Michelson is the absolute best. He is very clear and you do not have to use the book at all. He tells you everything that you need to know in order to pass the class. He is extremely helpful and nice. He is by far the best biology teacher.

Awesome professor...very chill. Makes class fun and will crack jokes from time to time....you can get by with just the powerpoints but the book will help. I got by with a B without using the book but 189 covered alot of the material in 196. His tests do give ppl problems so study hard for an A.

Dr. Michelson is an excellent professor who genuinely loves his subject. his lectures are lively and he is very enthusiastic. His class is not easy by any means and his tests are worded in a very difficult manner. I recieved a B in his class and I had to earn that. Make sure you read the book to get an A but you can get by with just lecture notes

I got an A in this class. After getting a B on the first test I started recording the lecture and going through it a second time with his notes and it helped a lot. After that I got As. You don't want to miss class because he has clicker quizzes. Had this professor for lecture and lab, he was awesome. Really down to earth.
