Micro 233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Dont be late. Attendance is mandatory. Posts slides after lecture because she wants your attention. She's an amazing professor, but feels that for you to understand, she must explain it first. Frustrating, but play the game. After getting outlines, memorize every page; draw, color, whatever helps. Many ppl got A's. Her quizzes will be on the exam.

233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

labs are n very unclear even after you've read the lab manual and instructions but she doesn't bother explaining what the lab is about leaving everyone confused esp with the complicated labs. She is very serious. Make sure you don't play around in her class.

Dr. Farah was one of the greatest professors I've had. She went above and beyond her call of duty to encourage her students and make sure that they succeeded. Whether it be staying late to help a student learn a concept, or encouraging students to visit her office hours, she was always there to give any extra helpt if needed. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Farah was an excellent teacher. She was willing to work with her students in helping them succeed, even if they were not the typical "A" student. She was always available in her office hours to help answer questions or concerns. She wanted each of her students to do well. She kept the class entertaining by telling personal stories and jokes.

I took many of my undergraduate biology courses at UIC as well as Northwestern. Bio 251 with Dr. Farah at HWC really sealed my knowledge. I was so pleased to have her as my instructor for Microbiology as well. She is really motivating, very responsive to emails. I highly recommend her as a professor.

This was one of the best classes I have ever had in college. The instructor was highly knowledgeable due to her many years in research, very approachable for help, and fair with grading. The class was taught using the project based learning method, which proved to be highly effective for creating a team learning environment. Highly recommend!

MCROB233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I enjoyed having Dr.Farah as my instructor. She seems tough, and her exams aren't easy, but she truly cares about the subject she teaches and her students. She's a generous grader, and a pleasant person. Her thorough teaching of the material helped me to succeed in the course and her enthusiasm about microbio made me excited about the subject too.

I don't mind being challenged by an instructor but she was hands down the worst professor I have ever encountered. I felt like it was a humongous waste of time and effort.

Mrs.Farah was excited about the subject, but failed to teach it in a way that the students would understand. WORST instructor I've had.

She's awesome. She's fair in grading. I'm fortunate enough to only have to 'study' a grain of work to pass. Posts lectures on blackboard, hw done online.Due tomorrow?Do tomorrow! Winged her class w/ no text.Mandatory groupings for lab, use charts in your reports. Wished she would've gone more in depth in certain subjects though. A++ will take again

Dr. Farah is for sure passionate, Dr. Farah really cares about her students. However she puts everyone in groups which is not the best thing to do. I also found that her quizzes may not coinside with the pp lectures she tells you to study. Overall she is a nice person.
