If you have him for AP transfer out. You will not be prepared for the AP exam, and unless you really like bio youre going to hate it by the end of the class. He may be a good living environment teacher but i don't think he knows ap bio himself.

Mr. Bacchi is a really eccentric guy. He's always wearing a tool belt with his writing utensils and rides a wacky bike. He's really cool as a teacher, though, and tries to get his students to enjoy biology. I really liked the bio labs especially frog dissection, lamb heart dissection, and strawberry DNA extraction.
He has students complete packets for each topic which really help when you need to study. His class helped me score a 97 on the regents exam.

Really cool teacher, who is funny, nice, and creates a great atmosphere. Gives textbook homework which is okay. He saw me using a palomino blackwin pencil, and gave me cool free pencils throughout the year. He's good at teaching, although alot of students complain he isn't(its because they dont pay attention). Gives pop quizzes, but aslong as you do the hw you should be fine when taking them. Great teacher

mainly just dont fool around in his class. do all assigned work. he is a neat freak and a perfectionist so make sure you label everything that he tells you to like the heading and name, row and seat and class number. his tests are kinda hard STUDY!!!

Awesome teacher. All you have to do is your work. Also, do the packets he gives you and make your labs colorful and you'll get an 80 without even trying. But I would actually do the lab to get 100. Tests are pretty fair, sometimes tricky.

He is the worst biology teacher ever. Tests are super hard! Gives surprise "Pop-Quizzes" that are 27 MINUTES LONG! Can't teach, and stutters a lot. He is really stupid. Tries to act like he is funny, but really isn't. He's also very immature. He has an awkward laugh.

The best science teacher I had at tech. His tests may be hard, a little confusing, but he explains. He gives you alot of review worksheets and can be very helpful because he gives you a bunch of notes(including his cool and SOMETIMES funny slideshows ^_^). Homework can be a drag, but it helps boost the grade. Just do everything he wants you to and you'll do fine.
