Mr. McLinn is effective in teaching what he wants the students to know, but not necessarily in preparing them for the AP. I did well in his course but I had to read through the AP book on my own to prepare for it at the end of the year. It is an honors course, so it would've been helpful if he had focused more on the information that students needed for the AP exam.
Other than that, he was forgetful and skipped around in the textbook, which was confusing.
Overall great teacher, you need to put in the work yourself. He is a very nice guy.
Mr McLinn is nice and somewhat knowledgeable. His class is very fun, except for the fact that it is not an AP class. While it is labeled AP Bio, we are not at all prepared to take the AP. The tests and cirriculum are from at least 5 years ago, as some of the people in higher grades remember the exact questions on the test. The textbook is very old, and he has us revise it in class because half f the time it is just wrong. That being said, I love the dead cat stories.
This guy is amazing. Best teacher. He's everything a teacher should be. He's knowledgable, sarcastic and funny, understands that we have a lot on our plate, I could go on about him. I wish every teacher was like Mclinn. Thanks for everything!
Mr. McLinn was my bio teacher and boy, oh boy! I could not have asked for a more interesting experience!
This guy is the greatest teacher ALIVE...If you dont learn bio from rob mclinn, you havent learned bio
Very tough class and he's upfront about that. So many quizzes, but good for making sure students know their stuff. Very good teacher.
Rob, your class was REALLY hard for me and it was so tough but the challenge was awesome. Thanks for not making it easy. It pushed me to be self sufficient. Your class was the toughest especially genetics. Oh my gosh!
Great teacher. He might not put that much prep time into class, but he is very thought provoking, and taught me tons.
He's really nice, but also unbelievably lazy. He even uses Maggio's pics sometimes.... He does have a very "interesting" teaching method.
By far the best science class at prep, and quite possibly my favorite class.
you provided an awesome foundation for biology which is now my major thnx
