BIOS 2500 - General Genetics

Pros: The lecture notes are online along with answer keys to correct previous test, quizzes, or extra credit. Gives frequent quizzes which help balance your grade.
Cons: Very monotone. The lectures are boring and hard to pay attention to or stay awake in.
Overall, the class is ok, but definitely not my favorite.

Pros: He is a very knowledgeable professor.
Cons: He can sometimes have trouble getting the point across and at times can be very long-winded.
His lectures jumped around a lot. They skipped to random chapters in the book, and he'd sometimes give exams over material we hadn't covered in lecture.

Pros: He gives 3 tries on his online quizzes and posts all slides on e-learning. He also does hand out a decent amount of extra credit.
Cons: His voice is completely monotone, making it almost impossible to stay awake in lecture. He isn't very approachable, and he rambles too much.

Pros: He can put everyone to sleep extremely fast while lecturing.
Cons: People only attend class to get the quizzes he saves until the end.

He crams chapter after chapter into hard exams that no one passes.

He just sucks as a professor all the way around.
