Her botany class is a tough one, but doable. Be sure to study for lab quizzes and you will do fine.

This class had a lot of work associated with it, but she graded very leniently. Lots of fun field trips to wetlands around the state. Highly recommend.

took for botany- She is the nicest, most helpful teacher ever! I am a slow learner & I bombard her with questions all the time, but she is patient with me and will keep going over things until I understand. Botany has hard material, but Prof. B. does her very best to make it interesting and understandable. Always willing to help. She really cares!

a lot of people had trouble in this class. But it was my first college lab ever the fall semester of freshman year, and I got an A no problem. Just read/outline the chapters, and be sure to use HER wording on tests; she is really picky about that. She was really nice though, and her lectures were always interesting. Take her!

Hardest teacher I've ever had. Weekly quiZzes in lab are exam difficulty, all short answer. Condescending. Doesn't respond to email. Honestly the worst instructor experience of my academic career.

I've had no problem with classes in Neuropsychology, neurophisiology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, and I've done ok. But now I cannot get through this Botany class. Is it because the material is hard? No. It's because the teacher gives weekly quizzes that feel like exams and scatters the subject matter all over the place. Avoid like the plague.

Her quizzes are a joke. Makes it ridiculously hard as the exam. The labs and lectures tie in together. She also jumps around in material a lot and one can easily get lost so you have to organize your notes after class all the time.

Awesome professor! Loved this class! Her lectures are interesting and she uses a powerpoint so it's easy to follow along.So nice and willing to help! Labs were interesting and you get to take field trips. Study guides for exams. Not an easy A, but not extremly hard either. Definitely recommend her for any class!!

My best advice is to attend lecture. Also pay attention, and take good notes and you'll get an A/B+ no problem. Shes very excited about what she teaches and very willing to help. A little scattered but shes a newer teacher and its a lot of material.

Got an A and never opened the text. Gives PPT notes ahead of time. Lectures can drag; tends to go over same thing over and over. Grading scale is a bit strict (>93% for an A) and grading can be nitpicky at times. Don't miss lab, even if it is excused as she might still dock your points. Assigns lots of stupid little hw papers. Def. tolerable prof.

She's a tough grader but she's really nice. If you attend lecture and lab you should pass no problem. You have to learn to do well in her class. She gives a lot of examples although sometimes can't explain them great. If you want to slack don't take her class. If you're willing to learn I recommend her.

If you have a choice, do not take this teacher!! Test are harder and longer then they should be and she is a tough grader. Like student said below...can't explain why something is wrong.

She's a ridiculous grader! She wouldn't give me answers as to why I was doing so poorly even though I completely understood the material! Do not take her!
