BIO 311C - INTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY I
He is a wonderful professor and I would recommend him to everyone.
Pros: He is a very kind professor that really wants his students to do well. He is more than willing to help you if you need it as long as you show the initiative.
Cons: He sometimes is a little too smart for his students and can't relate topics to an easier level for everyone to understand.

BIO 311C - INTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY I
Pros: Seemed like he cared about the students and us learning the material
Cons: EVERYTHING!!! Was the worst class I've ever taken in my life! The "course transformation project" is the worst idea anybody could ever come up with. Our lecture was a discussion and our discussion sections were useless! DO NOT EVER TAKE HIM! No teaching was done at all, only discussion in class. The 1st and 3rd tests were too long so no one finished in time and the final exam was so difficult he had to give us a curve. Avoid at all costs
