I had taken A&P 1 with another teacher and did not learn a thing. I took both 1 & 2 with Sarah and loved the class and lab. She will answer ALL your questions. Great PowerPoint and follows her syllabus. Her lab quizzes and lecture exams are hard but fair...if you do her review sheets. Would take her class again in a heartbeat.

Anatomy and Phisiology 1 with lab. She was very helpful in class and out. You could ask questions during class for clarity or get help outside of class when needed. She handed out material that was beneficial to the learning process (so you could listen to her and learn in class without focusing on writing notes). The lab portion was interactive.

Sarah is really a great instructor. She is VERY clear on what she expects and is really helpful. Her lab quizzes are easy, her exams are challenging but if you study the materials you'll do great . There are never any "surprises." I HIGHLY recommend her!

Sarah was always helpful with clarifying stumbling blocks and providing supplemental materials to make the material accessible.

I took her for A&P lab. I was very disappointed with this class. She expects you to learn a lot of material in a short amount of time and her quizzes were only 20 questions on an enormous amount of material. She didn't go into details about things just a brief over view. I would not recommend taking her.

Yeah, I was not 100% impressed with the learning experience in this class.If you value your GPA, I would advise students to speak up if they feel that the grading is biased, and to also speak up if you have a classmate who seems to waste 15 minutes of every class with nonsensical interruptions. Because Sarah will not. Good luck. Terrible class.

If you're present and you take notes, there shouldn't be a problem. She does go over about 20 slides per day and we just take notes, but it's a lecture class so that's to be expected. She's very willing to help if you ask for it.

Sarah was a great instructor. I had her for AP lab and I'd like to have her again for AP lab 2! She is very knowledgeable about A&P! You do have to read and study to make the grade but she's a great teacher!

Great teacher, uses powerpoint presentations that she hands out and are very helpful and complement the text. Tests are difficult, but are fair and comprehensive. Very receptive to questions and always does a quick review at the begining of class before she moves on. She covers a lot of material and as a result you learn a lot.

You'd have to be crazy not to think she's one of the best teachers you've ever had. Really awesome and amazing. Great lecturer, nice person, caring and helpful. Friendly and happy to be teaching. She's just great.
