BIO 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: F
"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She is not interesting at all. If you do not like BIO I do not recommend you take her because she does not explain the material clearly. During her lectures, she writes messy, you can barely read her notes. Tests are tough. I learned more from reading out the textbooks than from her.

BIO 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is a good teacher and all but she is not clear writing her notes. It is written lightly on a chalkboard that I cannot even see it from a distance. Her exams and lab quizzes are a cluster of questions that we didn't even learn about. Her notes are sloppy and unorganized. I would not recommend taking her

011N Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: D+

Honestly she has good intentions. That being said, she is a terrible teacher. Much of what is on her tests were never discussed. She also takes information for tests not even described in the book. Once again, terrible teacher.

Taking this class is suicide. She is the worst teacher I ever had, and will make you feel like a complete idiot.

BIO 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is by far the hardest class I have ever taken. She writes all notes on the board and her handwriting is not legible. There are no notes/powerpoints on Blackboard. The tests are crammed with too much material so it is difficult to remember everything. She gives extra credit assingments troughout the semester but you must do well on the exams!

BIOL124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Oh dear... Try not to take her. If you go to GMU and have her for BIOL124 or BIOL125, godspeed to you. She tends to read off of the textbook & lab manual but you can honestly just read it for yourself... Her lab practicals made me sad and made me fail. She doesn't teach you anything for the practical! Also, don't leave class early unless excused.

BIO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Good teacher, not "mean" at all. Writes notes on the board for lectures. More visuals would be better, though. Thoroughly covers the topics, so take notes. Tests are hard, so study your notes and memorize. Quizzes are easy. Lab is tough in this class; pay attention or you will have trouble with the lab quizzes. Lab project is easy if you try.

BIO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is really really hard to understand. Pretty much all her notes from my class came from her, not the book so if you miss youre kinda screwed. Her tests are SUPER hard, even if you study. She only gives 1 extra credit assignment and it wont even make a dent in your grade. Dont take her unless you like biology and can keep up...

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. She IS MEAN, NOT helpful. I'm just being honest. She can't teach. My friend who majored in Biology couldn't even understand her notes & teaching. The ONE time she was "acting" nice was when we had a monitor come in, take notes & watch her teach. Her notes never make sense & they're unorganized.

BIO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Aww shes not MEAN, she just doesn't know how to teach. She wants us to learn and gives a good amount of extra credit. Her notes are just all over the place.
