Tests are hard. Most are failing. Studying given material doesn't help, read the book.

Comment:
He's a nice guy but awful at online teaching. The COVID pandemic has really put a block in the way we students learn but the most important thing right now is that we are actually taught. That's not him. He read's off his powerpoints and only grades tests and ALEs which are only worth one point. His study guides are not helpful at all either.

This was genuinely one of the hardest classes Ive ever taken. He doesnt use any slides or even write notes on the board. If youre not an auditory learner, good luck. His exams are confusing and youre basically expected to memorize the textbook & know the exact words he said in lecture. Your entire grade is solely based off of 4 exam scores.

This man has no idea what he's doing. I crossed the street without looking on my way to his class because I didn't want to make it there.

Kevin Wolbach, NO PhD., is one of the worst professors I have had the displeasure of having. He gives minimal assignments, your grade relies mostly on exams, which are near impossible to pass. You have no study resources, and are often left in the dark about what is expected of you. He does not use powerpoints, so good luck figuring it out.

Does not offer PowerPoints or any back exams to prepare for his exams. Studied for his exams in advance, but still got 60. Unclear questions on the exam. But he is always available if you want to make an appointment.

Kevin does not use PowerPoints or any type of in class notes you can look off of. Basically sleep with the textbook under your pillow for the semester because you basically have to memorize every inch of it. He gives no homework or classwork, so your grade is dependent on only exams. Hes also obsessed with plants so get ready.

Wolbach is not as hard as everyone says. His lectures can be boring, but they are really helpful. His tests are from lecture and textbook. Also a really good teacher if you have to take microbio next year.

Unclear questions on tests. Adds tricky question which you have to read over like 8 times to get it. He claims he repeats important information 3 times, but this is not the case. Very challenging tests and he comes off like a jerk. Do not recommend.jerz.

Wolbach is a really good teacher! His tests are challenging but if you rewatch his lecture captures before an exam you'll do fine. His examples in class keep you interested. From what I heard he's not as easy as the other teachers but you learn so much more and walk away remembering things from class.

WOlbach is an AMAZING teacher. YOu learn soo much from him, but I gotta agree his tests are somewhat hard,but i would take him over mostrom any day. He actually gets you prepared for exams. I got a 94 on his exam by just rewatching his lecture captures, so if you listen to him in class and take good notes u will get an A! Wolbach Rocks :)

Comment:
Second semester is much better than the first in terms of interest level. He is more challenging than Porter, but I feel that he teaches well; if you study the lecture notes you will be fine. Lecture is MANDATORY in the sense that if you only study the book material, you will NOT do well.

Comment:
I don't recommend if you wanna get an A. He teaches a lot of things outside of textbook which can be interesting sometimes but when it comes to exam you dont want it. If you took AP bio you will do fine in his class but if you didnt, you better take Mostrom. Hard to get an A from wolbach..mostrom's exam average usually above 85

Comment:
Best bio professor out of the three (mostrom, porter, wolbach) (mostrom changed since last year, she became extremely hard). all his tests are based off the book. i never showed up to class and still got high B's on the tests. all you have to do is read the book and youll be fine. EASSYYYY Final. All his questions were from previous tests

Wolbach is the hardest teacher when compared to the other Biology teachers (Mostrum and Porter). Going to class isn't mandatory but you need to go to take down notes because all of his exams are based on his notes. He's a great teacher and is very clear but his exam questions are tricky.

never take wolbach for lab! he'll keep you in lab for the full three hours, and give you a terrible grade no matter how sufficient your work is. other lab instructors are less demanding and with them you'll easily receive an A+ just for showing up. AVOID WOLBACH FOR LAB.
