Dr. Peterson is a difficult professor. But you will learn an outrageous amount of stuff for one semester. She makes you really confident about biology if you do well. You have to read the textbook, study her slides AND take notes on her lecture. She's understanding about certain absences and gives great extra help. She's really excited about bio.

This class is not impossible! It is challenging, got to admit. Make sure you study!!! Ask questions, she gets kind of frustrated when the class seems to be ok with the material, but when they are about to take an exam... then the questions are being asked. If your embarrassed of always asking, go to her office! no excuses.

Dr. Peterson is not as bad as everyone say she is. I went into the class thinking it would be the worst class I ever had, but that was not the case at all! Her tests and quizzes are hard but not impossible if you just study her notes. Don't let people talk you out of taking this class. I got a B in the class and actually enjoyed it.:)

She's helpful, only when you understand what she's talking about. On the exams, try to get as much points as possible! Every point counts, even if you don't really know the question ESPECIALLY ON THE FINAL. Memorize her slides. Study after each lecture, it helps. Ask her questions to get her to notice you.

Excellent prof. and is dedicated to the subject! overall the class is quite difficult, her tests are quite challenging and not merely just memorizing information but knowing concepts! She does go over everything in class drng lecture, but people tend to slck off, thats when you use your book! take the class seriously, my only regret :(

Overall, she is an okay teacher. She is not the type you can kid around with. She takes Microbiology very seriously. She was way tougher than the other Microbio teacher, Comiso. Her tests are more applied knowledge rather than just memorizing content, they are very hard. Rarely uses textbook. Just memorize her slides and you'll be fine.

In order to get an A just memorize all of the powerpoint slides and make sure to know any mechanism she explains. Be ready to add a lot of material to the ppt slides. In all, this was a pretty challenging class.

If you basically memorize the notes you'll do fine in the class. Attendance really helps your grade out at the end of the semester just be sure you sign in or have someone sign in for you. As soon as you get those notes, MEMORIZE MEMORIZE MEMORIZE. Only use the book to do SI assignments and to look at the figures (sometimes tested/quizzed on).

Everyone thinks that she is such a hard teacher but in reality, they just don't understand how much work they need to put into the class. If you just go and talk to her, get to known her, and show her that you are interested in her class, she is very helpful. Her tests are challenging, but if you put in a lot of time studying, it's not too hard.

Just don't take her classes. She has no idea how to teach. She puts up ppt slides but she doesn't put them on angel so u have to type them up and then she doesn't give u study guides and she says to study everything for the exam. When you ask her a ? she doesn't know how to help. She really is useless as a teacher.

It is her first year teaching so she adjusted a lot over the course of the semester. Her lectures were somewhat confusing and her tests were really hard in the beginning. Towards the end, she got the hang of it and her lectures became more clear, but her tests and quizzes remained hard.
