Nov 21, 2013 Many students are told by others that this class is a simple one. However, this is not the case. Not only is this class a stressful, it is useless. A majority of the information we need on the test cannot be memorized in the time frame given to us. Many of the students cheat. When he witnesses cheating, he ignores it. Furthermore, he also invades one's person space, for some odd reason, he likes to take multiple pictures of students in class. Be wise and don't take this course. THISCLASSISAJOKE. Flag Rating

Nov 21, 2013 Anyone who is thinking of taking this class because it's easy, don't. Unless you have a lot of free time and easy classes, this is not a class you want to take. The amount of work assigned is overwhelming. Students must take notes WHILE he lectures, which makes it difficult to learn anything. 95% of his student fail the tests/quizzes but he doesn't help them improve. He knows that people cheat but he does nothing about it. If you want to actually learn something, try another course. Flag Rating

Dec 03, 2012 He seems nice in the beggining, but as you learn later on, he can't teach for jack, ends up being a sarcastic ass, and the workload he puts on you seems to FORCE you to go for his extra credit. His lectures are minimal, and his notes don't help at all, as they just go in to specific like an advanced class, not a high school starter one. The best way get by in his class is either waste time studying so much and taking attention away from other classes or cheat which most students admit doing.3/10 Flag Rating

Nov 24, 2012 I cannot believe that he was supposedly a good teacher in 2003. I have him for Human Physiology. His class is a complete joke. His labs are ridiculous because he doesn't give you any helpful information. The packets of vocabulary will be useless in the future and all the classwork comes straight out of a textbook. If you want to learn anything about Human Physiology, you're better off risking your sanity in Mrs. Goo's AP Biology class. Good luck! Flag Rating

Nov 17, 2012 I regret taking this class. I'm not even learning anything. Everything this class does is just book work. He doesn't explain things well and is always very vague. What's ridiculous is the amount of paper and ink I waste printing out 50 of vocab that I probably won't even use in the future. Don't take this class. It's a waste. Flag Rating
