Worst teacher at Hofstra. His tests are difficult and too long. Avoid his class at all costs. Also, he doesn't give extra credit even though every other Bio 11 teacher does.

Rigel was amazing! Not going to lie, the class was really tough and you have to work your ass off to get a good grade, but he was a good teacher. Everything on exams are from his lecturespowerpoints, and he doesn't test you on anything he doesn't teach which is rare to find in the Hofstra bio …more department. Tests are hard but he's a fair grader less

He literally speeds through everything that he teaches in class. It is so difficult to understand when he tries to get through a 65 slide powerpoint in less than 50 minutes. I would strongly advise NOT taking him if you aren't that good at or interested in cell genetics and biology. Tests are so …more difficult and he takes points off for everything!! less

Professor Rigel is a GPA destroyer! His tests are way too long and hard. Even if you read the textbook it doesn't give you what you need to answer his questions. AVOID!

Dr. Rigel is one of the best professors I have had in the biology department. He definitely makes Bio 025 come alive. Very approachable, and clear as a teacher. Might be a little fast, but that keeps you on your toes and makes sure you are learning something. I have definitely learned a lot.

The class was challenging, not that I didn't expect bio not to be hard but this was ridiculous. The tests are challenging and the quizzes and workshops didn't help much. He is a nice guy who's hilarious and willing to help if you go to office hours but that still didn't help the fact that my grade …more was suffering. Overall, just stay away from this class. less

Rigel is Great in Lab, but lecture? He is TOUGH. His tests are so specific and he doesn't always explain this clearly. He also didn't have enough time for office hours so it was hard to get one on one help. He knows his stuff and is fun for more complicated classes like bio 025, but not for gen bio
