As long as you know the material you will do fine on the test. She makes it really easy to understand

These labs were honestly the biggest waste of time. The UA needs to review their bio labs because all of these labs were computer based kindergarten level activites, that were all mostly busywork. They scheduled activities for the entire lab time just so that no one could leave early.

Really hard class and waaay too much material for the summer but I didn't study as much as I should have. She gives practice exams that are similar to the real exams which were good but still didn't do well. The problem sets brought my grade up - she will tell you if you have the right answer on those.

Great course and I am glad I took it during the summer. She was very helpful and fair but I didn't do so great on some of the exams.

Dr. Wood is a great teacher - very helpful. Her lectures were good and she knows the material but there was so much to learn in such a short period of time (I took this class in the summer.)

This is a great class if you really want to learn biology. A lot of material was covered but Dr. Wood made the material easy to understand. She went out of her way to help me and other students. This is a good course but be prepared to work at it.

Wood is a good teacher, the class is worth taking. She explains the material well and I feel like I learned a lot. Her exams were fair and she was always very willing to help me.

Class consists of four tests and a final so it's important you go to class and do the homework. The tests aren't hard however - very similar to the homework. Wood is a good teacher, the class is worth taking.

This is probably the most difficult class that I have ever taken. It is all problem solving. I hated it but Dr. Wood did her best to help me through the material. I may have done better if I had studied more.

I don't understand some of the previous posts - she is a great instructor and really cares about student learning. I noticed that a lot of students expected a good grade just for showing up. This is biology, you have to learn the material to get a decent grade. I worked my tail off and expect an A - difficult but I learned a ton.

I took this class during the summer and it was my favorite biology class that I have taken to date. Genetics is difficult and she did her best to make it clear. She is very helpful if you want it. Don't expect to attend class and earn a C or above. You have to earn it.

The absolute worst science teacher I have ever had. Her exams do NOT correlate with her teaching. All she does is read her powerpoints. If you were ever skilled at taking SAT's or ACT's you may have a chance but it was absolutely horrible. Do not take her during the summer! Horrible just horrible. Nice lady though.

Took this class over the summer in the hopes of getting it out of the way. Unfortunately, there is far too much material and she gives far too little review. Absurdly difficult tests with trick questions. Do NOT expect to slide by with just looking at the slides- you MUST be determined to pass and DEDICATED to receive anything higher than a C.

She is clear and very helpful, if you ask. Do not expect to just show up to class and do well. This class requires some work. It would make the class more enjoyable if she joked around more.

This class is not for the faint of heart but if you truly have a burning passion genetics then you should take it! Test are hard. Oh.. and she is HOT! ;)
