I highly recommend Dores for cell bio. His tests are straightforward and don't try to trick you and he gives extra credit. The course material wasn't easy, but I wouldn't take it with anyone else.

Easy tests with extra credit, what more could you want? Attendance isn't mandatory but the lectures are entertaining.

Nice professor. Didn't do well in lower level bio and was worried going in but tests were simpler than i expected from a class like cell bio. Gives lots of extra credit and is very approached after and outside of class

TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. He lets you bring a note card for tests and gives extra credit. Cool guy, very nice, will definitely help you out if you are struggling.

He's a wonderful professor. I'm so happy I got to take a class with him before I graduate. You learn how to read papers and interpret data which was really cool. The material was really interesting and he made it even better. He's always available for office hours if you need help and he's very …more east to talk to. Would recommend him to any student! less

He's an awesome professor! Super happy all the time and seems like hes genuinely excited about teaching Bio. I heard Bio 11 was suppose to be tough but hes exams are pretty easy, gives extra credit and his lectures are easy to follow. If you have a chance take him!

Bio 11 is supposed to be difficult but he explains everything so well. If the teacher doesn't teach, people complain. If he does, people complain that he's boring. Dores is as good of a teacher as they get. Very accessible in office hours. I went to almost every single one and he gave tons of back …more points when I explained my reasoning. less

Horrible professor. Does not explain things well, gives ridiculous tests compared to how we are presented the material in class, and comes off as very arrogant and cocky. First test average was a 30, and the next two tests weren't much better. Basically no extra credit. It seems much has changed …more from his teaching last year to now. Do not take him!! less

He is a mean person and makes test to trick you. He laughed and told one of the students that he purposely made the final hard. Very unapproachable and does not do a good job of teaching topics he covers in depth on the exams. He leaves many gaps in his lectures and a lot of what he teaches isn't …more in the textbook. If you need good grades don't take! less

This class is definitely difficult, but not impossible to do well in. Need a good understanding of the material throughout the semester to perform well. Always accessible via e-mail and by appointment - he makes sure you're comfortable with the material and that is highlighted in his exam …more questions. Good luck - it's a fun class! less
