Great prof! I had to take a mandatory bio class and was dreading it until Sonish completely changed my mind and got me interested in Bio! She's very passionate and explains things clearly. The only problem was that the department made her curve grades after we all did well on the midterm so everyone ended up with a bad mark at the end.

Very easy midterm. straight- forward exam. She curved grades way down after exam. started with A+ in class & ended with B-. Easy material . make sure you attend for participation marks. Keep track of your grade & if your mark is low, go see your exam.

I had Sonish for biol 271,364 and 380, when I found out she was teaching Immunology I dropped it right away. She's a great person, but she focuses way too much on Biochem. She never tests you on the proper Biology topic. She is often unsure about the material as well. I'm not a big fan of her. She is attractive though!

Not only does this teacher lack confidence, but she doubts herself every 2 seconds. Nice person and all, but teaching is just not for her. Tries to be friendly with students to disguise her amateur teaching. Take this prof only if the course you have to take is absolutely mandatory.

SIMPLY ONE OF THE BEST TEACHER IN CONCORDIA. SHE IS REALLY HELPFUL, ALWAYS REPLIES TO YOUR EMAIL ASAP. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HER IN MY NEXT BIOLOGY COURSE.

Helpful, and nice. But her lectures are not systematic. If you want to know biology not a bunch of important definitions- read the book. Helps on exams. Very enthusiastic about teaching. Finals are hard.

what this teacher lacks is confidence, very confusing, doubts herself every 2 seconds, hard to fully pay attention better take it with a teacher who's more confident and knows the subject well

Sonish is amazing. She tells you exactly what she wants you to focus on and explains everything well by keeping the information basic. Highly recommended!

She is nice and approachable but doesn't know her stuff. Scratch below the surface of any topic and she has no idea how anything works biologically from life cycles to classifications of organisms- you have to write exactly what is in the answer key for credit, even if the answer key is wrong or incomplete. Her notes are inconsistent with the book.

Usually plants bio is really boring, but this teacher is really clear!! If you study her slides you will get an A for the plants part of the course. I enjoyed her final exam it was 100% from the power points and NO trick questions. I would definitely take her again. Memorize the slides and the diagrams in the slides.

Dr. Sonish is a fantastic teacher. She is personable, polite and very easy to talk to. She can make mundane topics (and there is a lot in this course) interesting and easy to comprehend. Her final exam is fair yet specific. Know your things, pay attention in the labs anf you should end up doing well. I would take any course with her name next to it

She is a very good teacher, very helpful, cheerful, and a smiling person. I enjoyed her lecture very much. This is an unfortunate situation that she is matched with Dr. Mangat for this class. Dr. Mangat lowers significantly the quality of the Concordia biology program, and Dr. Azam should teach the complete course including the plant section.

A great teacher. One of the best at Concordia. Very helpful and nice. She is very rational, doesn't bombard you with unnecessary information (that you will forget as soon as the final is finished). Attend her classes, read her slides. You will get a A+ and will have the knowledge maybe for the rest of your life.

This is a survey course, its a walk in the park. Dr. Azam is a helpful professor, and yes she is very hot!! DON'T BUY THE TEXTBOOK, print her slides and you'll be fine.
