Comment:
Dr. Islam is an amazing professor. He has a thick accent but he is aware that it is hard for students to understand him so he frequently asks the students if they understand what he is saying. The only grades we had in the class were test grades but if you pay attention to lectures and take good notes, the tests are extremely easy.

Comment:
Lecture: He skips around a lot. Although he knows what he's teaching, he is hard to understand. I recommend printing off anything he posts online and doing problems outside of class. Lab: Super easy as long as you show up (and bring a calculator). Attendance is mandatory for lab.

Comment:
Dr. Islam is one of the best professors i have ever had! He is one of those rare professors who truly cares about the progress of his students. He encourages students to ask him questions, at the beginning of each class period review what had been covered during last lecture, always glad to answer all the questions you've got. There are four tests

Comment:
A great teacher. I think he knows his subject incredibly well and if the student is receptive, will pick up on it easily. He is hard to understand, but it is naive to think all profs will be American born. If you listen, you'll get good at deciphering his speech.

Very interested in helping his students. Obviously has good grasp on material, but it's really hard to understand exactly what he's saying sometimes. If in doubt, read the book!

Great guy, so knowledgable. Would take again if only I could understand half the things he says!!! Write down everything he does and study 'til you're blue in the face. Then study just a little bit more...

Lecture: wastes too much time calling on people than explaining the lessons. take notes, go to any study sessions, tests are easy if you study. He likes to give problems. Lab: very easy as long as you try. Tests are easy if you go to the study sessions.

He is hard to understand at times, but he's a very knowlegable guy. He knows what he is teaching but sometimes finds it hard to relay that knowledge to you. The tests aren't too bad but you need to know your stuff.

His english is sometimes hard to understand, but he knows it, so he goes slow at the start of the semester. He is very willing to help, I recommend him for organic! He is good!

Dr. Islam's english is as good as can be expected for someone of his nationality. I had him for the 300 level Biochem and I enjoyed it. He's very helpful and willing to explain to make sure you know the material before he goes onto new material.good guy
