Pros: .....
Cons: Heavy Studying
Dentler gets his kicks from degrading students. His tests are extremely hard, and were only passable when he provided the questions to the test as a 'study guide'. He does daily clicker questions that are 20% of your grade and they usually came straight out of the last lecture. Every single question he writes requires you to think. It was all just mindless studying, he never gave a clear idea of what to study for so you were kinda just at a loss and over whelmed with all the material he covered. Take this class in the Fall if you can, it'll be the best thing since sliced bread if you do. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid Dentler.

Pros: Offers a new prospective on some subjects, that helped me understand older concepts in a new way.
He is rude to students, and teaches beyond an introductory biology level. If I did not love biology I would be running the other way after this course! The TA's were great, but avoid the professor if it all possible!

Pros: Clicker Questions
Cons: Difficult Tests
I found this class to be very difficult. For the tests you need to study the book forwards and backwards, you can't rely on his lecture power points or your notes. Also on tests he requires you to draw the mechanisms of a cell, which can be very difficult because he has high standards. And it was also very hard because you had to conceptualize everything. l The clicker questions are utilized at almost every lecture, and they helped improve my grade. So DONT miss a lecture. Also some clicker questions were on the tests. Overall I wouldn't want to take a class another from Dentler. So I would recommend choosing another instructor. And sometimes he can come off as rude and belittling.

Pros: you get to learn how to teach yourself biology
Cons: you have to teach yourself biology
Dentler means well but he's too smart for a majority of the class so we rarely understand what he's talking about. he goes straight to the big picture before we're able to see the smaller parts of the picture so it doesnt really make much sense. I got a tutor and things are going better now but if you need a study hall in college at 8am tuesday and thursday, take this class
