She acts like you should already know everything. Doesn't explain very much. Power points are super fast. Not a very good teacher. Rambles during lecture.

Good Professor, she knew what she was talking about and was always excited to teach the class. My Recommendation is to always go to her class prepared and always be interactive in her labs because that can earn you extra points. Only negative is that she made me feel like I was dumb when going over quizzes in the lab.

Assignments are relevant to the corresponding textbook material, very concise and easy to navigate. The layout of this online course is incredibly easy and enjoyable to use. Pairing with Chem 100 online was a manageable course combination, however I would not recommend overloading yourself with anything else. Take the time to truly understand it.

Online course is very well put together. She is attentive to student's needs and adjusts course load to better suit everyone's current progress by extending due dates for instance. The book for this course is phenomenal.

Very helpful. She wants every student to succeed, and she is very clear about assignments. She's great at mixing things up in class so you don't get bored. She's very organized and driven. Great teacher. She truly loves anatomy, which is why she's such a great anatomy teacher!

Be ready to work because this class is not for the faint of heart. If you plan to not study and sit around YOU WILL FAIL! She likes those that help themselves and if your questions are good then she is ok. If you ask a 'easy' question it's in your textbook. This class is COLLEGE LEVEL.

She knows her stuff, but makes you feel stupid when you ask a question. She speeds through PPTs and doesn't explain things well. Be prepared to teach yourself everything for better understanding because she won't help you without making you feel dumb. I would highly recommended taking anatomy with any other possible teacher.

Be prepared to teach yourself! She is very smart, but stingy with her knowledge. She will make you feel dumb when you ask questions. She does not cover much in class, nor does she review what students are struggling with. You are better off taking this class with a different teacher.

I took this Anatomy course online thinking it wouldn't take as much time but I was wrong. It was extremely hard but it was not easy. If you plan on spending A LOT of time studying on your own then the online would work. The teacher was not very helpful when it came to taking tests, emailing and sorts so try another teacher if possible.

I took Bio 201 online because this is the only school where I could do A&P online. I did OK but I worked hard. My only complaint with the course was the disorganization and lack of clarity with assignments and dates. Also we used a new book that the pages did not match our study guide.

I had Cynthia for Anatomy last semester and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. This class is very challenging if you want an A, but it can be done! She made this class an amazing educational experience!

This teacher has high expectations of her students but she holds herself to the same high standards. She is a quick grader and is avalible for students. I took her class over a year ago and I can still accurately recall most of what I learned in her class! She may be tough but if you really want to retain information... she's the best!

Don't take the online class. Teacher is absent, the class is more expensive and the online discussion boards are worse than lame. You have to teach yourself everything--and she is slow to respond on questions. I have had way better online teachers.

Lots of memorization and minutia. Does NOT know chemistry, physiology, math, unless it's in the book! If the book or key is wrong, you'll have a hard time correcting her! Tries very hard. Does know most anatomy although pronunciation is often off. Don't get on her bad side or ask difficult questions, she holds grudges. Likes suck ups.

If I had to take this course again I would definitely choose to take it with Cynthia. PAY attention in lecture, alot of her lecture exam questions come from the actual lecture and not just the book. Try to make labs also, I missed one and it was hard to catch myself up on what was covered in lab. I really enjoyed this course and teacher. :o)

makes your questions feel belittled, never lectures on topics that show up on the tests, textbook is a must (read everthing), though she is very knowledgable about anatomy
