BIO 311D
INTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY II
4****
Pros: He really does care for his students and tries his best to help everyone out. He makes a lot of jokes in class and tries to keep us entertained. Curves exam average to 80.
Cons: I thought the exams were extremely TRICKY and long. People say just to study his slides, but most of the time it just says one word like "bark." What am I supposed to do with that? Some of the answer choices would both TECHNICALLY be correct, but he says "Pick the BEST answer..." I didn't really feel like he prepared us for the exams. He spent a lot of time on topics that weren't covered.

INTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY II
4****
Pros: He was a good professor and generally very fair on exams. No homework. All of his lecture notes are on powerpoint slides and he posts them online. I made a B but barely put any effort into the class.
Cons: Sometimes hard to understand because of his accent. Throws some questions in his tests sometimes that are a bit confusing. Generally managable tests though

Pros: Very easy. He WANTS you to pass. He curves a lot. A friend of mine failed every test and still passed with a B. He puts all his notes online as well as practice exams. Very nice.
Cons: He speaks Chenglish (he acknowledges his speaking as this, it is not an insult). It might be difficult for you to understand him.

Pros: He's the most passionate professor I've ever had. I actually enjoyed going to class just to listen to him speak about subjects that he loved so much.
Cons: His accent is hard to understand but he's extremely apologetic about that and after the first 3 weeks you get used to it.

During our first and last lecture, he sang to the class. He's a lovely professor, always plays music before class begins. He cares about his students. Gives curves.
