Comment:
Plant Science was a hard class, but if you actually studied and went to the SIs it made a huge difference. I have a lot of respect for Dr. Zweifel. He is a good teacher who will answer all of your questions. I would take his class in a heartbeat.

Comment:
One of the most boring classes I have ever taken. The lectures are long and boring. I learned virtually nothing out of any of his classes. You have to study hard and for long periods of time because if you don't you will not pass. Even if you do study hard the questions don't correlate to the lecture. He has a lot of gotcha questions on the exams.

He is a good professor and will help you if you need it. That being said his test are very hard and studying is a must!! I studied my butt off and still got a C, and that is after he had to curve it so much. Definitely do not take him as a freshman.

Comment:
Z is a great guy and very knowledgeable. He gets a bad rap because plant science is super difficult. He can ramble on a little bit at times, but if you ask him a question he will clarify for you. He's a peculiar guy but pretty funny. I definitely recommend going to the SI sessions. Don't expect an A unless you work your butt off.

Comment:
Class is curved luckily. Exams are extremely hard, we've had to do two credit recovery things because the average was so low. If you study for a class usually, go even harder for this class. If you study hard and attend SIs you will be fine. Zweifel is agreat guy, everyone talks about how hard his classes are, but just study and you will do fine.

Comment:
Basically impossible for some classes. Asks questions throughout the class and will chuckle if you answer wrong. He gives tests that usually are different than that information went over in class. If it is on the same topic he will make the question basically impossible to answer correctly. Short answer questions have to be 100% correct.

He is easy to talk to and always willing to help if you have any questions and does not belittle you. However, his class is not easy. You HAVE to put in the effort to do well. It is not impossible to get an A. I am just an average student typically, but I was able to pull of an A in this class, but I had to study my butt off to do so.

He is a very knowledgeable, and funny guy. He really cares about you, but he's definitely a teacher that expects a lot out of you. You have to attend class, pay attention, and take notes to get a decent grade.

Zweifel is a great guy, but his plant science class was super hard. A lot of things covered on the test didn't really seem to come from the notes. I studied for every single test in there (and not just the night before) and I ended up with a 53% in the class. I even went to SI's and to talk to him for help. He didn't do the best job of explaining.

Extremely tough tests. Great to help if you ask, covers a lot of information in one lecture, so you have to pay close attention. If you go to him outside of class he's great at making sure you understand the material.

Poor Z. Everyone always hated his classes! Must suck being "that teacher." For the record, I've used a lot of what he taught me, and I'm glad he went into such detail. He's actually very funny, and very helpful if you just go and ask. Once you get to know him, you'll love him. If you make a big effort,and let him know you're doing so,you'll get by.

Z's class is tough. It isn't a class that you can sit back and wait until the last day to study. For an A: go to every class, use the SI regularly (especially b4 tests), pay attention in class, and take time to review your notes after each class. class is cummulative and builds on eachother. If you dont understand something you wont get whats next.

He is a very difficult teacher, and hard to understand at times. Lectures are pretty boring, dry, dull, etc. You must work very hard outside of class to do well, also he loves to do pop quizes. Show up to every class! This is very important! He thinks very highly of himself. Dont be afraid to ask questions even though he will belittle you.

To be completely honest He is really nice! A little conceded at times but his lectures are always interesting. Go to EVERY! SI it really does help. He normally has random quizzes on Fridays. His tests are really hard, but if you study you will do fine. He pulls the grading scale down at the end of the semester which really helps.

His class is difficult and challening but fair. If you put in the time to study and attend class you will make it. He is helpful if you talk with him outside of class. A great class that will seperate those who have the want to and those who don't.
