Comment:
Very disorganized notes and teaching style. Class was a mad scramble to write down every tiny detail he mentioned... because he tests you on them. His notes lack clarity and cohesion. He seems like a good guy, but he is not a good professor.

Best prof I've had yet! I look forward to the classes, he always make the material interesting. He expects a fair bit of detail and requires you to do some thinking on exams.

I am absolutely in love with this man. He's the best prof I've had in my 4 years at university. Wants you to do well and succeed, and wants to make sure you actually get a university education! Has so many office hours to help you out, and is so friendly. Seriously I can't even find enough words to describe how amazing he is!

Also took wildlife nutrition with him. He is an amazing professor. Keeps classes interesting with stories and jokes, and explain things in an easily understandable way. He marks fairly. He is very busy but will always make time for you - he really wants you to do well!

Jim is a great guy. He is exceptionally helpful and kind. Also, he enjoys a good laugh. I've never heard him be angry, though I'm sure he gets frustrated at times. I have never had difficulty with his lecture style, but probably b/c I am interested in the topic. Make sure you write down all 'examples' - they are imp. for exams. Good man, Jim.

He was super nice, but i dont feel like our class was high on his priority list, you wont get a midterm back until the day before your exam. However the exam was very fair.
