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.

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.

He's really nice, but also unbelievably lazy. He even uses Maggio's pics sometimes.... He does have a very "interesting" teaching method.
