Students, Dr. Odeh is the one of the best biology professors out there. He really cares about his student's education and making sure that they learn the material. He has the highest respect for his students and will always respect you. On ratemyprofessors.com many of his ratings were removed by a jealous professor whose students CHEAT, Dr. Munoz. Down below you will see comments that were made by students and deleted. You will see what date they were made and what the comment said:



May 13 2010- Took him online for Spring 10, easy class. He has notes, reviews and quizzes and test easy as long as you reviewed.



Jul 08 2010-This professor is super knowledgable and understanding. I Was a bit apprehensive before i started this course because of previous ratings in ths site, however most of what is said about him is not true. This professor will go out of his way to help every student, and learning is guaranteed. Needless to say you must study and attend class. :)



In total about 33 positive comments were removed by a jealous professor. Everything that said good teacher, excellent teacher, easy class anything that rate this professor as being positive were removed. He left the negative comments on there as well as some that were good. The professor who removed Dr. Odeh's comments is a sad excuse for a teacher. Those comment were made by students who loved having Dr. Odeh as a professor. He is the best out there. The HIGHEST HIGHEST HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION FOR HIM. Some comment that were removed can't be replaced.

Pros: Explains material in a very understanding way! :D
This class is definitely not a class for those students who just want to show up and pass. If you are one of those students look for someone else to be your professor. Be prepared to attend every class and participate in all labs. Be prepared to study and understand the material. Definitely pay attention in labs, so that you know why something occurs. It's really important that in both microbiology and biology you understand what is happening in the experiments. Dr. Odeh looks at everyone during class time to make sure that everyone is doing something and not just standing around doing nothing. Make sure to do the quizzes because they will help you understand the material for the test. So, if he gives you an exam over chapters 1 and 2 make sure that you do quizzes 1 and 2. The quizzes help a lot. I know that they have helped me with chapter exams and final exams. His class is one that you have to work hard, but those students who work hard and attend class pass without any trouble. Majority of my microbiology class passes with A's and B's. However, there were like 4 students that were ify about their grades, but those students didn't study until the last minute. They passed, but maybe with a low B or C. Just do your work, study and go to class.

DR. ODEH IS A GREAT PROFESSOR. HE IS TRULY ONE OF THE BEST PROFESSORS I HAVE EVER HAD. I ENJOYED BEING IN HIS CLASS SO MUCH. I DIDN'T TAKE THE HYBRID, BUT THE FACE TO FACE CLASS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU ALL TAKE THE FACE TO FACE CLASS. IN HIS CLASS I GOT AN A. AS LONG AS YOU WORK HARD, YOU SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM PASSING. MY FAVORITE PART OF THE CLASS WERE THE LABS. I REALLY ENJOYED PERFORMING THE LAB TASKS. HE IS RESPECTFUL, HELPFUL, FUNNY AND OVERALL A GREAT PROFESSOR. IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE MICROBIOLOGY, TAKE IT WITH HIM. I'M GLAD I TOOK THE TIME TO CONSIDER ALL PROFESSORS AVAILABLE. I LOOKED AT ALL POSSIBLE PROFESSOR RATINGS, BUT I LISTENED TO VERBAL STUDENT OPINIONS. TO ME THAT'S WHAT I LOOK AT MORE STUDENTS VERBAL OPINIONS. DR. ODEH DOES OFFER EXTRA CREDIT AND HE IS VERY FAIR ABOUT IT. EVERYONE ACROSS THE BOARD HAS THE SAME OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE SAME AMOUNT. HE'S NOT LIKE ANOTHER PROFESSOR WHO HANDS OUT TESTS, LAB TAKE HOME TESTS AND EXTRA CREDIT FROM LAB BOOKS IN WHICH SOME STUDENTS HAVE THE ANSWERS DONE BY OTHER STUDENTS WHO HAVE TAKEN THE COURSE. DR. ODEH IS JUST AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSOR WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.



BY THE WAY IF ANY OF YOU HAVE TAKEN PHYSICS OR CHEMISTRY MAKE SURE YOU RATE HOW THE PROFESSOR WAS. I LOOK AT THOSE, BUT STUDENTS VERBAL OPINIONS ARE BETTER FOR ME.

Pros: Professional, listens, and helpful
Cons: None
I took microbiology with Dr. Odeh in the fall semester 2011 and received an A. Dr. Odeh does offer extra credit :) It's not alot, but it's something. :) For the face to face class he has 4 lab practicals, 4 lecture exams, quizes which are done online. He drops one lecture exam. The material is fun and interesting. It's really not hard if you study, go to class etc. Don't be lazy!!!!! He's such a GREAT professor and i highly recommend him. In his class you will learn SO MUCH :)

Dr. Odeh is incredibly fair with all his classes. He will never test you over a chapter he didn't lecture on. If he doesn't get to lecture on a chapter, he will simply remove it. He won't make you study a chapter on your own or make students go to other class sections. When it comes to final exams he follows the final exam schedule. No class will have their exam pushed back, nor will he change the time. He also won't make a class take the exam earlier than they are supposed too.

Pros: The best professor at South Texas College. He is such an expert at what he does. i just love how he is very fair with everyone and treats everyone the same. this professor is so respectful of his students and does not talk bad about them at all. He also frowns upon cheating and does not encourage it. however, he is so good at what he does that you don't have to cheat.

Pros: Professional

Respectful

Fair

Highly intelligent

Funny

Over 10 years of teaching

Cons: Nothing, he is terrific!
Dr. Odeh is one of the greatest professors and he is professional and fair. He is absolutely fair with extra credit, lecture exams, final exam schedule, lab exams, and quizes. He drops the lowest lecture exam grade. If you miss a lecture exam he won't allow you to make it up, you will get a zero. Professors do tell you ahead of time when exams are to be given. I had a teacher who allowed students to make up exams whenever they wanted. I remember when I was in my A&P professors office and a student was barely making up an exam that was given in February the last week of school in May. That A&P teacher is known as a teacher who encourages cheating. Dr. Odeh has microbiology and biology reviews, so if you do those not only do you learn, but you more less know what's on the exam. Not everything on those reviews will be on the exam and not everything that is going to be on the exam will be on that review. On those reviews you either have to explain how something works, does, is, etc. The take home exam you have to know why you chose the answer that you did. If he asks the class questions about that take home exam and no one knows anything he will cancel that take home and give a in class exam. He is truly exceptional and has over 10 years teaching experience. I highly recommend if you want to learn and actually earn your grade. If you want it easy, then take someone else. You actually have to study and comprehend the material.
