A very smart teacher, but very hard to understand. He goes to fast, and give a lot of material to cover. Test are 10 pages long and not really over what was talked about in class. If you can take genetics with someone else or some where else to it. Worst prof. ever.

Dr. Mendenhall is the most caring teacher I've had at UAH. Yes, the class is hard and he is forced to cover lots of material, but you will come out of the class knowing the information if you put forth a little effort. Get help in office hours and you will be just fine!

Excellent and very clear professor, but be warned, he has a very dry sense of humor and can be very blunt. He makes no secret about this being a weed-out class. DO NOT think that you can memorize his practice tests and walk out with a B. This class is much more understanding than memorization; you …more must must must UNDERSTAND the material to do well. less

Way more work then expected. Intense professor but knows his stuff. He expects a lot of prior knowledge from freshman bio, so be prepared to relearn some from the textbook. Go to office hours or tutor and learn to do the problems assigned. An A is definitely manageable with legitimate effort and …more sound reasoning on his tests. The labs are a joke less

You have to work hard for an A, but it is do-able. I did sacrifice a lot of time on the two take-home exams and grant paper. Be prepared to read A LOT. The class is time-consuming, but it's grad school. He is approachable and has a dry sense of humor and I felt I learned more in this course than …more undergraduate cell bio. Also make sure to participate less

Definitely a hard class, but it was seriously one of the most educational classes I've ever taken. If you legitimately want to learn and get a real grasp of biology, go out of your way to learn from him.

Difficult but rewarding learning experience. You can not just memorize the information for the tests, you have to be able to think through problems and really understand the concepts, so his tests can be rough. If you work hard, your grade will reflect that. My favorite class of the semester.

A very enjoyable experience, you're in college, you're here to learn, and he is here to make you UNDERSTAND genetics, not memorize it. Tests test your understanding of the materials presented in lecture. He is very approachable, but if you don't show effort, neither will he. My favorite professor …more out of my three years here. less
