Like many others, and even more who will never look at this rating, Albey's class continues to teach. A true master. Thank you!

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

I took Albey's class in '86. Then a Business Major, now with an MBA from the Univ of Chicago--yet, Bio of Cancer and Aids (back in the AZT trial days, no less) is the one class with the most lasting, profound impact. I've bought 'We the Victors' out of print, and contemplate the power of the mind and spirit with far more than the CAPM. Thank you!

Albey Reiner is the man, take his course if he's still teaching it, you'll learn volumes from his brilliance, compassion, humor and intellect. His is a class worth taking.

What a fantastic class relevant to anyone who lives in any society! Alby is an enthusatic, knowledgeable, talented professor who demands students attend classes and study. If you don't take this class you are selling yourself short.

Every student should take this class, especially if cancer runs in your family. Dr. Reiner may be hard, but what he teaches you may possibly save your life. Do the work, and the results may be more than a good grade.

So hard, yet so interesting. Don't sign up, just go to the lectures on your own so that you don't have to take the tests. Seriously, it's that interesting.

Microbio 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is the best class I've ever taken. If you attend every class, study the material YOU WILL PASS. It's a simple formula, folks. I am not even a biology or science-related major! Anyone who says this class sucks clearly doesn't even deserve to be at UMass. Transfer to Bridgewater!

microbio 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

GREAT CLASS...tests are unbelieably hard (I am an A student) but if you go to class and prepare ahead of time you should do fine...Also I think he scaled the final grades and optional final. MUST TAKE if you go here.

This was a great class, the material was very interesting, and Professor Reiner did a great job of presenting it in lectures. The tests are difficult, and you need to attend class to do well, however study sessions are held before each exam which are very helpful, I would highly reccomend attending.

MicroBio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

MicroBio of Cancer and Aids. People told me not to take the class because it was hard, but it seemed interesting so I took it. Good class, but tests are so hard and almost impossible to pass Only 3 test with no extra credit. There is a final which is optional.I am an A student and I failed the class
