My physiology teacher was just terrible! He was a last minute replacement , as the original professor took another job elsewhere. He spent the entire semester just reading the power points word for word, when anyone asked a question to explain something in more detail or give easy to understand examples, he told us to go home and look it up on wikipedia...... I kid you not!!!
For the first test we were told to only focus on the study guide, and 80% of the class failed the test. I only got a 75 (I have never gotten below an A on anything, not gloating, just expressing how devastated I was). When I tried to talk to him and get a better understanding of what I needed to focus on, he brushed me off and was not kind or helpful. He openly ridiculed students for doing poorly and talked about his "star" pupils to the entire class. He also made fun of a student who had to drop the class due to an alcohol issue and cracked jokes at his expense! I just began studying and memorizing EVERYTHING, and never got below a 95 again. He made many error in correcting exams, which had to be corrected after class, all of my tests had at least 5-6 questions marked wrong that weren't (and these were scantron tests, so he filled out the key wrong!) After he saw my grades his attitude toward me changed, it was like once he realized I wasn't dumb, I was worth his time, however, my attitude for him did not change and I made sure to let loose in my review. More than half the class failed, and many students went to the head of the dept to complain. I saw he was teaching last semester again, but not this one, maybe they wised up!
The worst part.... This man is BRILLIANT!!!! I guess intellect does not a good teacher make always!!
