Horrible. Worst teacher I've ever had. His lectures are not connected to that weeks lab because he's two weeks behind. All he does is read off of the PowerPoint and doesn't really give detail. He assumes a "learned reader" so if you don't have a strong background in bio it's even worse. Do NOT take …more him. He takes forever to grade things too. less

I love Dr. Mike! He really knows what he's talking about, especially when it comes to amphibians. He's a little unorganized, but he's always willing to help you if you ask. His tests aren't easy, but they aren't hard if you study well. He is an easygoing dude that is awesome to chat with (:

I love Dr. Osbourn! You'll do fine if you just show up and pay attention. He is so approachable, helpful, and funny. I can't wait to take his Comp Vertebrae Zoology and Herpetology classes. Best professor I have ever had- take him! (PS: yes he's unorganized, but it's bc many courses were thrown …more onto him all at once and he had no time to prepare) less

Dr. Osbourn is such a kind soul. He is definitely there if you need him. He is a little unorganized and is late to give tests/assignments back; however, he really enjoys teaching. His tests aren't too bad if you take the time to study. The lab is hard but that's because Comp. Vert is the hardest …more class at App State Bio Department. less

Dr. Osbourn is a nice guy, however does a terrible job of getting grades back, is disorganized in lecture, doesn't show up to lab because he doesn't know the material, and says he will provide study outlines for exams then doesn't post them until 24 hours before the exam. He's a bad teacher and if …more you want to succeed take another WID course. less

Late grader. The class was a WID and I didn't ever get a grade back on my final paper. Who knows if he even graded it at all. He's a nice guy, but he definitely prioritizes his research and more fun activities over teaching. Clueless in lab. Knows his stuff about reptiles and amphibians, so he's …more probably a great herpetology prof. less

Holy cow, this is the worst professor Ive ever had. HOW he has good reviews, I'll never know. I'm an A student in my senior year. This class destroyed me. Lab is 40%! He's unorganized. You won't get grades back (just took the final and don't have a clue how the last test went A MONTH AGO). Guy …more needs to be fired, honestly. Sweet, but no professional less

Dr. O is a very smart professor, especially if you are taking herpetology. He is a very slow grader, but he is always there for help and feedback. The practicals for all his classes are very hard but that's what I expect in a biology class. If you study hard, you will definitely be fine. I have …more taken 3 of his classes and exceeded in each.. hardwork less

Yeah he's not good at getting grades back but Dr O is freaking awesome he's super helpful and approachable and his lectures are realllly wonderful, not too dense and easy to read and understand. His exams are very straightforward and easy if you do the work (he also makes study guides). I had him …more for both CVZ and Mammology and he is awesome less
