He's awesome! He's flexible! He doesn't try to fail you by giving tricky questions on the test just to trip you up. He's approachable. Lectures were recorded, although if you come to class and study the lecture slides, you're good.

Awesome prof. Was super accomadting throughout the whole strike. Made it very clear as to what was expected on midterms and final, so no surprises. That being said you should practice questions on your own and attend tutorials.

Loved him for BIOL2040 Genetics. Consistently paced lectures, and very clear on what wants to be known for tests. Read the textbook, but according to what he says is relavent. I recorded my lectures and they helped a lot. His tests/exams are fair - put in the time and effort to understand what he wants to you to understand and you should be fine.

He is a very nice and understanding professor. Always willing to help and understand your situation. The course requires a lot of writing and he helps you to become a better writer. Presentations were very helpful also. Great prof!

I learned a lot from his course, but was it hard! 2 credit course, but one hell of a workload. He was very caring and accommodating, also very soft spoken. Yet, I still found him somewhat intimidating. Prepare to read lot of research papers and you are expected to understand every word of it. For presentation, pick a topic he is unfamiliar with.

I have had professor Hilliker for Adv. Drosophila Genetics and selected readings. I honestly learned ALOT and surprisingly became fond of fruit flies!! I highly recommend taking his course. Just make sure you attend his class, and take notes if you want to do well. Overall: He's an awesome prof, and very enthusiastic about genetics.

His glory days are over. Most confusing professor I have ever been taught by and he uses an inconsistent marking system across students. Nice guy but no longer fit to teach. He will teach to you like you're a fly obsessed PhD student. I recommend to avoid.

Had Dr. Hilliker for several classes at the University of Guelph in the late 80s and early 90s (40-200 Introductory Genetics, 40-303 Cytogenetics, and 40-406 Transmission Genetics). He was clear and consice and very interesting and always found time to help his students.

The best geneticist on the planet (and the last one, am I right, Dr. Hilliker? :))! It was a great pleasure and a life-changing experience to do the honour thesis under his supervision.

Excellent prof. Initially I found his lectures difficult but I went to the tutorial which most students didn't and found it cleared up my difficulties.

No Professor could ever be better than him. He knows too much and as his knowledge is way beyond his students understanding, most of his students usually hate him. Despite his lectures are unorganized, he makes the point well clear and doesn't expect anymore on his exam.

I'm going to avoid taking any class with him from now on. The course is heavily dependent on the lectures, which are confusing in themselves. He jumps from one thing to another constantly, making the note taking process incredibly difficult.
