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.

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.

He is a pretty cool teacher. Tests were somewhat challenging because you have to really understand the materials and be put things together. Overall, it was a pretty interesting course.

Review #7 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: DOERRLER JR W
You really have to know the notes he gives inside & out. But his notes suck cause it's just paragraphs of info, not very organized. He's kinda goofy but not a terribly hard class, pretty boringm, but tolerable

This is an easy class if you're a bio major and already taken micro and genetics, doerrler is a nice guy, kinda goofy, but overall a pretty good teacher-tests are straight from the notes that are posted online-no need to go to class

Review #12 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: DOERRLER JR W
It was his first time teaching in fall 04. Test reflected the notes which were posted online. gave a big curve on the first test and he gave a 25 point bonus opportunity. Nice guy but not the best teacher.material relevant to other courses like 4087

Review #14 / Course: BIOL 4110 / Instructor: DOERRLER JR W
He was the most inefficient teacher ever. His exams did not follow the notes especially on the final. I have never known so many people in one class to go down a whole letter grade due to the final. Students in class sometimes knew more than him.

The material is pretty boring for this class, but it helps a lot with Biochem 4087. Dr. Biel was a very sweet man and an amazing teacher. Too bad he's leaving us for the Carribean!

This was a great class. It is a good intro for biochem. If you take it after biochem, it's really easy. If you're premed, it is a great class to take the semester of the MCAT b/c it's not too strenuous.

Dr. Biel gives you material that seems straightforward enough and even quizes that are possible to do well on if you study. However, when you get to the tests; he puts things on there that he said "YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW"

The tests are challenging and some questions are worth too many points based on the amount of time spent on them in lecture. If you come to class and study a fair amount you will do fine in the course.

Class was very easy, should not be a 4000 level, more along the lines of freshman or high school difficulty level. Dr. Biel is very nice and wants students to learn but needs to challenge students a whole lot more.

It was easier for the tests since we had quizzes that made you study beforehand. Definitely take before Biochemistry.

Dr. Biel is an excellent teacher, and the class teaches alot of fundamentals, that aren't hard to learn, but that are important for other classes.

Dr. Biel is the FIRST teacher that I had at LSU that really cares about his students. He also provides outside material to tie all the lectures together.

I loved Dr. Biel. He was always available outside of class in case you had questions. He was always very helpful and actually cared about the students learning the material. He teached as if he was here to educate not earn a salary.

Dr. Beil seems to be bipolar...some tests/quizes are eassy and some are impossible. regardless this is a good class to take during/before biochem.

It's fun class, great teacher in fact the best I've ever had at LSU. You souhld try to take this class before biochemistry you will find it very helpful. The thing to it is don't stress, and don't try to do do more than what he says to do.

Dr. Biel is a great teacher and the notes that he sells for the class are excellent. Study time outside of class was small and the reviews before the tests reflected the information asked on the exams.

This class is definitely recommended. It's a good class with only 1 notebook. But that is good and bad because there is no supplemental material. Also, you have to be a good note taker. Dr. Biel is great

Dr. Biel is a really personable guy, who really cares about the students personally, however some of his questions are vague and gerneral and he grades for a specific answer so that makes it a little tough.

As with every 4+++ biology, you've got to put forth the effort; Dr. Biel stands out in my mind because he truely appreciates the work students put in. He makes the class lots of fun through his personality, and really strives to help you learn.
