He is the worst professor I have ever had in my whole five years of my college career. Please do not take him if you don't have to. He likes to see his students do poorly.

Comment:
I agree with Dr. Cowan taking pleasure in seeing students do poorly. He seems as if he deliberately makes his tests more difficult than they have to be. What educational benefit comes from timed identification exams? Where in the World does an Entomologist need to distinguish between different families of insects within minutes of seeing it?

Comment:
The class itself is boring, material is fairly easy. Many exam questions were a bit ridiculous...I was just waiting for the day "What is Cowan's favorite color?" showed up as a question. Exams are more about lecture examples than actual material.

Comment:
Exams are based on material covered in lecture. But his voice will put you to sleep. Take good notes in lecture and study hard because his exams are very hard.

Tests are difficult and wordy. They cover lecture material only. Do NOT take unless you plan to attend lecture. Interesting lectures otherwise.

Comment:
This is a perfect example of someone who gets their Phd just so they can be called Dr. He presents the material very well, but prides himself on making hard tests and seeing students do poorly.
