Comment:
Prof Cashions classes will be a self assessment on whether you should go to medical school or not. His classes are very hard and require you study every day for atleast 2-3 hours. However they are not as challenging as medical school. If you can't deal with his classes, maybe you should be looking for a different profession

Comment:
Dr. Cashion is rude, not at all helpful, he plays favorites, and he would stab anyone in the back given the chance. A friend of mine asked for a referral for med school, Dr. Cashion said yes. My friend had a bad feeling about it, so opened it and Dr. Cashion gave him a TERRIBLE referral. Textbooks are useless in his class. Terrible person/prof.

In the first class, you'll be warned that this is not a course for lazy people and take heed. I've taken all of Prof Cashions courses offered and he's one of the best prof's at UNB IMO. Only way to get an A+ is to attend all classes, rewrite your notes immediately after class, and study every day.

Rumours about having to attend his parties to get a good grade are totally false; I never attended any. There is a lot of material and you can't afford to miss a single class. I recommend recording his lessons and rewriting them immediatley after class.

I've taken three courses taught by Cashion because I think he is an amazing teacher! His classes are a lot of work but they are totally worth it!

Excellent professor - I strongly recommend his classes to anyone who is interested in post graduate or professional studies. The expectations are high but they will provide rewards for your future education.

Comment:
There's A LOT of material, you have to work hard, and yes, he is a hardass, but this is by far the class from which I have learned the most. He really gets down to the why and how of biochemistry. Don't let the crazy handouts scare you-they make sense once he explains them. He can seem unapproachable but he is usually happy to answer questions.

Comment:
this prof was ridiculous. expected way to much of a second year student. Def played favorites. After discussing my final exam with him which was worth 100% and questioning him on it. He proceeded to tell me i was stupid and shouldnt be in univeristy. I later graduated on the deans list. That will show him. Horrible, try to avoid taking

If you are a dumbass, or even if you THINK there is a SLIGHT chance that you may be a dumbass, a Cashion class is not the spot for you. You have to work for the A+, but it is very possible to get.

I learned so much, I thought my head would explode. That aside, this man is an amazing teacher. Never was there a concept I never understood. And as for the favoritism, I never talked ot the man personaly one on one before, I just payed attention everyday in class and took notes whenever he explained somthing, and I got an A+. Amazing teacher

material isnt that bad but there is way too much of it. the class material is more than someone can reasonably know in a single term. immuno final, studied 45 hours to cover the material once well and the final was mostly on take home assignments which he gave out like 3 per class, at least. dont even think about missing a class, you will be MIA

The final will have you ripping the hair out of your head, but if you studied and understand it, you should be fine. His handout every lecture are crazy, but once he explains them, you'll understand it all. He explains it good, but I always took noted on what he was saying to make sure I understood handout, and I got an A+... does kinda play favs

All I heard about his classes was that you had to study tons and he expects a lot!! It's true, and the studying helps. Exam is hard, but once you get through with the course you actually feel like you learned something for once!!! Plus first class that i never fell asleep in
