"There for you" "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

She is an amazing professor. I wish i could have her be my professor for the remaining of my college years! .You have to do your homework and show her you are trying hard and trying your best. She is very kind and down to earth when you get to know her. Her questions in the beginning of the class are like a mini test review. Always pay attention!

"Gives good feedback" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

She talks extremely fast and does this annoying, pre-lecture, going around the room asking everyone questions until a row doesn't know the answer. The tests are very tough and her grading system is weird. Quiz+worksheet grades+80% test gradeoverall test grade

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

Study along the way and you will do fine. It helps to have a gap between classes so you can review the material from the last class. She is a fantastic professor and if I could I would definitely take her again. She repeats important info and is very clear. She reviews you before each class which was nice, and her tests are pretty fair. Take her!

"Would take again" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

Easy "A". Just w any other classes, attend class, take good notes, ask questions, participate, be prepare, do your homework and practice good study habits. Professor goes over the material before class to reiterated the previous lecture, Genius. Listen to the questions being asked. it will be on test.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Assignments galore"

I'm intelligent and I enjoy science. This is, by far, the worst professor that I have ever had the displeasure of interacting with. If you want straight lectures and tests I.e. how college should be, then do not take her class. If you want homework assignments every night and to be treated as a middle school student, then this is the perfect class.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Respected by students" "Pop quiz master"

So grateful I had her for my first class at Collin. Her class taught me how to work and how to listen and comprehend quickly! All I had to do was write down everything she said and read and rewrite my notes at home. I would've been better off with a recorder, but I barely opened my book! Easy A if you commit and listen.

Most of the students complain about this professor. At first I would have said the same thing. If you study the lecture notes that she gives you like you're supposed to, you will do fine. Her tests are not extremely difficult, but she doesn't make the answers so that they are obvious. She's willing to help and available to talk to if issues come up

"Assignments galore"

Cons: she goes down then rows in class asking each person a question to start class, she is normally late, assignments done throughout the week are turned in on test day and each is worth 5 points on the test, very bad hand writing on board Pros: Test content comes from the power points so thats all you need, not very hard

"Would take again" "Pop quiz master" "Participation matters"

I was intimidated at first by her accent, but you get used to it real quickly. She is ALWAYS willing to repeat material and answer any questions you have. She likes to tell jokes too. We had 4 tests with an optional comprehensive final that would replace your lowest test grade. I only made one B. Only had for lecture (Fall 2014). Take her!

The only grades were from the tests and all of the homework was extra credit. Sometimes she would let us use our homework for the tests.

Excellent teacher!! She doesn't use the book, but if you follow along in lecture and pay attention in class you will do well. She is very good about going back over things you don't understand and she made class fun. I recommend her!!!

She was a great teacher! If you do the assignments and pay attention to the lecture, you can get a good grade. She is good about re-explaining things to you if you don't understand and is very helpful. I recommend her class!

Very unclear. I did better on tests when I did not attend. Puts students on the spot then gets angry if they don't have the answer. Did not post grades. I did not know I was failing until the final. Was so behind on lecture that it impacted my lad grade negatively. I had all A's and a B until I took this course.

Prof Rangarajan holds good lectures and frequently engages her students with questions. Not the easiest class I have taken at Collin but if you print her power points, go to class, and review your notes you will do well. Textbook was only used for one extra credit assignment in my class.

so sweet, as unenjoyable biology is to me she made it easy to understand, class is easy if you go to her class everyday. tests are from her lectures, and she asks everyone questions in the beginning of class which i hated at the time, but i found that it really helped on the test. such a good teacher, you can tell she cares about her students

She is a very clear instructor, and her reviews are highly helpful if you take the time to do them. However, she comes off as a little insulting to the students, and she has a horrible habit of treating the class as though we are still in middle school. Overall not a terrible course, but she often made students afraid to speak in class.

I took her for lecture, and it was very difficult. She's not mean if you go up and talk to her one on one, but she has a habit of calling people out in class. Also, she's pretty clear about the concepts in class, but the test questions are worded in a confusing way. Be sure to study, or you won't do well.
