Amazing teacher. People say his class his hard but really the only thing you need to do is turn in all labs on time and study. He's an easy grader and a good guy overall. I really like that he's totally real with his students. Also, his class is super super fun and he is good to his students. Great great great track coach and is very encouraging and fun. I understand some people including teachers think he's a grouch but he is just way to brutally honest which is an awesome quality. Great guy!

Tests are hard even with studying expect a D or lower. You can survive in the class with the homework and labs since the grade is by a point system. Energetic and funny teacher. Good luck in his class!

I had him for Anatomy/Physiology class. The 1st semester was an easy A. Do the HW, reread notes and you'll do fine on the quizzes. 2nd semester will be quite difficult due to muscle quizzes. You can make cheat sheet for the tests but not for makeup

This class is terrible - don't take it if you can avoid it. Davies is very knowledgeable, but he isn't good at teaching. Tons of busy work and the tests were absolutely impossible. He even let us use a cheat sheet for most of the tests and the average was still a D because he doesn't teach the material that is on his tests. It's an easy B because of all the busy work but good luck getting an A.

he was really boring, and he never seemed to get that the reason why the average on every test was a D was because hes a bad teacher, not because were all stupid. HW was really easy, but the tests are nothing like it, and they include stuff he didn't go over in class!

Mr. Davies doesn't really teach. He just glazes over everything and then you are expected to know it for the finals. I especially felt this way during the cat dissection, when he just pointed out the body parts then scurried away. Dedicate A LOT of time to studying for the exams, and expect busywork

Really funny and nice. Had him for astronomy...one of my favorite classes. Made the tests and work during class fun but not too easy. Dont expect to get through this class by not doing anything and just sleeping through class. But its not going to be painful. Fun but tough

He's funny, you'll stay awake and active- but teaching strategy and method is absolutely horrible. You'll really have to go out of your way to learn the material- don't expect to be learning from him. But a great funny person. I do not like how he incorporates his political beliefs into class though

I had him for two years, not a bad teacher . He is funny and you will stay wake in his class. But his tests are extremely hard. If you have him for CS2 study hard or can't get an A. In anatomy he is easier. He can be extremely annoying and he can be moody. Sometimes understanding and sometimes not.

he is an amazing teacher and always willing to help. The kids in my class are extremely disrespectful yet he puts up with them amazingly well. He has patience and is always willing to help. His tests are ridiculously hard but quizzes are ehh passable if you study well. He is a great coach as well.

I don't like Mr. Davies too much since he is not willing to help students. During my 35mins CS2, he just being like a DHH teacher that shouts and plays with students with low EQ.
