BIOL1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had her for BIOL for science majors. No surprises...she makes it clear exactly what you need to know. Tests were somewhat hard...but not if you study. I liked her. I left that class feeling like I really learned something. Don't take her if you want to sleep through class.

biol1406 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Her notes are useless. For exams, she asks us to study another professor's notes (David McCulloch). If you ask questions, she makes you feel stupid. If you ask her to repeat anything, she yells at you for not paying attention. She's always angry and ready to take it out on us. So basically you can't ask or talk at all! Really difficult to approach.

Dr. Borovkov is not the most dynamic teacher you will ever have. She has a fairly thick accent, but is easy enough to understand. She is very fair and consistent in her testing and grading. I highly recommend reading each chapter of text book prior to the corresponding lecture.

Bio1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you want an easy class where all you have is 4 exams then take this, but you should have a knack for Biology. If the subject is something that gives you trouble then Borovkov will give you no help whatsoever. When she teaches its like her reading a storybook. She just reads slides from the book. I want my money back.

This teacher makes CCCC look horrible. She uses the textbook, but thats all she uses. Useless monotone regurgitation. Makes no effort to make sure the students understand the material. And seems irritated when you attempt to make an effort. I asked what i could do for more practice. She replied "Read the chapter." Avoid.
