Cons: a lot to remember!!
The material for the course involves evolutionary relationships of vertebrates that lived FOREVER ago. I found it very difficult to remember the names of the animals because a lot of them have 15 letters in them! :( The final was by far the hardest exam...it was cumulative and extremely long. Really the difficulty comes from the odd names and remembering the relationships of which vertebrate existed when...he likes to test on cladograms, too.

2**
Pros: class is easy material

simplifies textbook information to his slides

animated and loud talker
Cons: takes attendance randomly with iClicker

spins easy material into hard test questions

LOTS of confusing questions on exam (example: a, b, both a and b, neither a or b)
I love biology and thought that the material for this class was relatively easy, but the tests that this professor gives are ridiculously hard. I don't recommend him at all.

Prof. Blob is a pretty good teacher when compared to most Clemson professors. He is really enthusiastic and likes what he is teaching, which makes a big difference when teaching a biology class. He does some of the most crazy motions in order to emphasize different concepts. As long as you read the book regularly and pay attention in class you should get an easy B.

Pros: He is a funny professor.

Class is interesting.

Uses powerpoints.

Has iclickers for participation points so that his tests don't count for your whole grade.
Cons: His class is difficult, its not an easy A but a do-able A.

Takes attendance.

Final exam had a cumulative section.

BIOSC 303H
VERTEBRATE BIOLOGY
5*****
Makes lectures very entertaining. You have to study to make an A, but it is very doable. You never have to read the textbook. Memorize his powerpoints and you'll be fine.

BIOSC 303H
VERTEBRATE BIOLOGY
5*****
Pros: excited about his subject, good explanations, good lectures in general
Cons: talks a bit fast, tests can be hard
tests are hard if you don't study but if you study the slides (ignore the book, i never even opened it) in detail, you can make an A. He's an easy grader on the honors project too
