I enjoyed Dr. Bishr's class! He is humorous yet very stern and passionate about A&P. Prepare to study your butt off and pay close attention to things he repeats in class.

Dr Bishr is a very smart man and very passionate about his subjects. But he has a very thick accent and that made it hard for me to understand the material. I ended up teaching myself. Also his teaching style consists of reading from a powerpoint. He does allow students to use one 3x5 index card on test, which is helpful.

Dr. Bishr is a very fair instructor. He gives 4 exams and 4 quizes for the whole semester, so there is not a lot of opportunity to earn points. If you study and show interest and dedication, you will do well in his class. Be on time to class, because he periodically gives pop quizes in the first five minutes of class that count as extra credit!

Very hard to understand. He doesnt care if your car breaks down, if you miss he gets mad. His test are even hard to understand. I would not recommend him at all for A & P

This guy is a TERRIBLE teacher.He only like's certain students and you will know if its not you! He is a not a good teacher.He makes you feel so stupid if you have a question on anything, lab or tests. I would not suggest him for A&P unless you want to FAIL.He needs to find a new profession cause teaching isn't for this guy at all.

Not recommended at all. Very thick and hard accent. Avoid him. Half of the students of our class they dropped it, because they could not understand him.

Dr Bishr is a great teacher if you show interest and pay attention. Language and accent can be difficult but if you read the material before class you should have no problems. Material is difficult and there is a lot to cover so keep up and there is no problem getting an A.

I liked Dr. Bishr. He was difficult to understand but as long as you showed up, did your work, there was extra credit to be offered. KEEP YOUR CELL PHONES OFF!! If it goes off in class, he will embarrass you.

If you leave early he will remember and at the end of semester you guys wont get along. Dont EVER leave early from class/lab and study hard outside of class so its obvious to him that you do study and you should do ok in this class

One of the worst instructors I have had. He doesn't like answering questions/e-mails or phone calls. Changes his mind with answers and doesn't clarify. He can also be very rude with you if you don't understand and keep asking him questions.Exams are very hard, he does allow a 3X5 card tho.He is smart man but he shouldn't be a teacher.

Bishr is one of the best instructors I ever had. This micro class is also very easy. I feel like a loser for getting a low A in the class. If I had just studied a little more I could have gotten nearly a perfect grade. Nothing is hard about this class. Everything is in the book and in the slides. I hope nursing school is this easy.

I don't think Dr. Bishr is a hard teacher. This is a hard class,it covers a LOT of info in one semester. I found him willing to explain and answer questions and he gives you extra points on tests. Attendance and participation count and will improve your grade. I had 3 other classes and still got an A.

He makes this class virtually impossible unless it is the only class a student takes for that semester, but with financial aid being what it is who can do that. This man makes a hobby of destroying people's GPA. Even if you are 2 points away from the next higher grade ie 79.7% he will not round say bye bye to med school!

Micro/A&P are generally harder classes. Dr. Bisher is one of the best professors I've had. he will spend extra time with you if your put forth effort. He allows you a 3X5 card on exams but don't rely on them. If you pay attention and study, his classes are easy, and his extra credit is helpful. A's are possible. You suck if you get less than a B.

He will tell you one thing and do the exact opposite. His tests are based on the most obscure information possible, if you think there would be no logical reason for this to be on the test study it! His labs are self teach he does not really help! The extra credit is a joke, he will forget to give it to you and then refuse to correct himself.

Great teacher..Treats good students w/much deserved respect & a little more leniency. Hates cheaters or sharing of test questions with other classes

Really great teacher. Exams are hard but there is extra credit to help boost your grade. You need to study hard outside class and read the text. Read labs before you go to lab. If you are a slacker the instructor will notice. Show him you want to do good by studying hard outside of class. It's not a hard class if you spend a lot of time studying.

He is a great teacher, has a great since of humor, but doesn't like students to be distracted or being a distraction. He is a little hard to understand, but his heart and his teaching is in the right place!

Dr. Bishr is A-Mazing, he is so helpful and REALLY wants you to understand the material. He does have a thick accent however was not a problem at all to understand. My entire class loved him. He throws in alot of extra points for attending class and pop quizzes. You WILL have to study, but any A&P you WILL have to, LOVED HIS CLASS!
