Comment:
I've really enjoyed his class. He's a really nice guy. If you study vocab and do a thorough job on the homework, you should be fine. You should definitely attend lecture because a lot of the content he will test on ccomes from notes that he writes on the board but aren't on the slides.

Comment:
Grading is extremely subjective, and counts points off for not including things that were never mentioned in the question. The class avg for multiple tests was around 75%, and he blamed the students for "not studying enough" when I spent 3 hours preparing for it. Also includes material on homework not covered in class. Would not recommend his class

Comment:
My goodness. Do yourself a favor, just take it during the school year. Horrible lectures, extremely dry material. Turns an interesting subject into a lullaby. Way too specific on test questions for easy concepts. MUST READ THE BOOK TO PASS. Dwells on unimportant topics. Gets off track easily. HORRIBLE LECTURES. Need i say more? Don't take this guy.

Overall, the class didn't take a lot of work and I ended up doing pretty well. However, you absolutely have to go to class to succeed. His exams are hard, and cover material from class not in the book, and they also cover material in the book not covered in class. Would have been better if he covered all the exam material in class.

Comment:
He's probably one of the worst professors I have had at IU. He never covers all of the material the he plans on covering, so he ends up cramming random things in on the class before the test. He seems like a nice man, but he should not be allowed to teach.

Ok I believe he has some type of mechanical turrets, but after getting past that he's VERY fair and straight forward about course expectations. Very easy ... you get out what you put in.

God he made intro to biology simple. It was the easiest class I've taken in 2 and a half years here.
