There are a lot of bad reviews for Dr. Gordon, but I like him a lot. I took him for biology and he is fair. Go to class and keep up with the reading because there are content and attendance quizzes. You have to really study for the exams, even if you have past exams. The hardest tests are the ones from some of the guest lecturers second semester, but they are doable. All of the guest lecturers are available for office hours or you can email them. Hardly anyone actually asks them for help, so they'll appreciate if you do. Also make sure you go to lab. There are quizzes every lab as well. Lab second semester is A LOT more difficult than first semester. Study a lot for the practicums. My lab TA second semester was absolutely terrible, but I learned everything on my own and still got an A. If you put forth the effort you should be fine.

He is one of the most unconcerned instructors at this university. His courses are not clear or concise. When lecturing he takes pictures out of the book and talks about them, and randomly goes off talking about things irrelevant to biology. His attitude has to be one of the worst, he acts as if he doesn't want to be here. Read on your own!

If you're a bio major, you will go through Gordon for BIOL 101 and 102. I liked Gordon! He is very honest about what he feels and sometimes curses in class. It's great. LOL But he's also very impartial. He uses old exams, so ask an upperclassmen. It's really the guest lecturers during 2nd semester that are tougher. He WILL have pop tests! Go to class!

I've had Gordon for Bio 101 and 102. He is very blunt, but an outstanding teacher. He is very strict about being impartial and makes efforts for students to do well with extra credit on exams. If you work, you'll get the grade you deserve. DO THE READING!

Dr. Gordon is rather cranky and rude in class sometimes, but outside of class he's really friendly. He doesn't "give" any grade, so you have to work for your A if you want one. Going to his office hours help a lot. DO YOUR READING AND COME TO CLASS - HE DOES GIVE POP tests. His exams aren't that bad, but you need to study. Overall, I love him!

Great prof., shows interest in class and knows what he is talking about. Doesn't care for attendance but does give random tests. Exams are from the book and the notes, so buy the book, come to class, study and you should get an a.

Gordon is getting old in his days and can sometimes get a bit cranky..but we all do. Attendance is MANDATORY even if you think it isn't after a week, because there are pop tests randomly throughout the semester that count for 10% of your grade! He won't GIVE you an A, but if you pay attention, do the readings, and study well, you're sure to get o

Dr. Gordon is an AMAZING teacher! He's attentive & accommodating. However, he's not afraid to tell you like it is. He spares no feelings when it comes to gis teaching techniques. If your willing to work he's the great prof. ever however, if you want an simple A look elsewhere. He's also stop giving back his exam as of Spring 2010.

Gordon is the easisest biology teacher at Howard but his class isn't simple. He has two other prof.s who teach the remainder of the class and their exams are difficult as hell and most of the class fails them. Do well on his exams and great in the lab so you don't have to worry about F's and D's you get on Butts and Dickson's exams.
