Review #1 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: BATTISTA J
I'm the one who wrote the review below this one on battista for biol 4110 Just wanted to clear up that the grade obtained was a B, not an F. But still, DON'T TAKE THIS COURSE WITH BATTISTA, YOU WILL THANK ANY ENTITY THAT YOU BELIEVE IN THAT YOU DIDN'T. Take ANY other professor, if you can't, I highly suggest waiting for another semester, summer, or intercession if available. I wish I would've been warned before it started

Review #2 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: BATTISTA J
I'm a microbiology lover, but taking this was a silly decision in many parts. In my head I wanted to take one of LSU's hardest courses by one of the most "respected" professors (mainly by the faculty and research students…only). Basically if you're not a pretty little smart girl who does research or wants to, don't take battista. I mean, he married one of his previous students… He has some impressive previous discoveries, but his time is way past due. I loved the course content, couldn't stand him (neither could anyone in the course). Class started with over 20 students ended with less than 10. Lectures are boring and you have to go, exams are 14 pages and all written/essay (for science…). I finished in the top half (of less than 10), but advice anyone against it. also, as mentioned earlier, if you're not a pretty and smart girl DO NOT ask for a rec letter, he WILL fuck you with it

Review #3 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: DOERRLER W
Terrible teacher. After the final I had an 89.99 and he would not round up to an A for me. The class is boring, and you have to write a paper at the end of the semester. The tests aren't too terribly difficult, but he is just a douche. He hates premed students, so tell him you are interested in grad school.

Review #4 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: BATTISTA J
If you are going to take microbial physiology, do NOT take Battista. This class was far from being an introductory class. The exams were essay only, some of which were worth 30 points. STAY AWAY.

This is the hardest class I've ever taken! Worse than Organic Chem II
