CHM1020 BSC1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

I've taken Mrs. S for Chemistry and Biology + Lab. This class is easy if you just do the online homework and quizzes. Anyone who thinks this professor is hard is a joke. She genuinely cares about her students success. All exam questions are covered in the chapter quizzes, so be sure to pay attention when taking the quizzes and you'll pass the exam.

She was very helpful if you GO TO her office with questions. You will not learn everything in class, but study the powerpoint and DO the MASTERING. Tests cover about 75% from mastering. and extras are from other sources. I received B but I was close to an A.

Biology 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. S was awesome, if you study hard enough you can walk away with an A, but I kinda slacked and got a B. She was always more than willing to help me, in person or email. She knows her stuff, the course load honestly isnt that much. I would take her again if I could! She might seem intimidating but shes actually really nice! Dont text in her class!

Very rude professor. Not helpful at all. Don't take this class if you need to actually learn the material. Put in at least 20-30hrs a week just memorizing.

Honestly, labs were easy but She was not helpful. She always told us to refer to blackboard when we had a question. The tests are very different from our lectures also, confusing. She was very sweet but not helpful. She moved too fast and wouldn't go over anything. Not a teacher I would recommend for Anyone. It was hard.

Had her for my first semester in college after 2 years off of school. Labs were explained very well. Most of the questions on exams come from Mastering, with some more complicated things in there, but if you have an hour to study after class, not hard to pass. Consistent 70's on all tests but got a B. Easy HW. Everything in class posted on BB.

Her curriculum doesn't correlate well with the test. At the end of the semester we had 4 test within a 2 week period. It was as if she believed we had no other classes. I like this woman as a person but as for a teacher, she's awful.Therefore, if you're not a genius or premed student DO NOT TAKE HER!! YOU WILL REGRET IT!! PLEASE!

Professor Sinduhuvalli is a very sweet woman with good intentions and very intelligent, only she's very unorganized. During her lectures or power points she'd jump from subject to subject making it almost impossible to learn anything. She get's distracted easily by texters ,sleeping students,or late arrivals. Her curriculum doesn't correlate at all

Mrs. Sindhuvalli is an extremely helpful professor. You dictate how hard the class is. As long as you go to class and do the homework and quizzes online, you will be fine. Most of the test questions come from the online homework and quizzes. Mrs. S was great!

r. S is super nice and helpful, if you have any questions just ask! Do the HW! She uses the test questions straight from the HW online, almost word for word! Everyone in the class would just used flashcards of online HW questions and study them for the tests, really helped! Dr. S knows her stuff and is more than willing to help. Gives EC opps too!

I took an online course with her and hated it, you only get an hour for 50 questions on the tests and there is very little that is in the homework and quizzes that are on the test... the quizzes are pretty easy though even though you only get 15 minutes for them.

Professor Sindhuvalli is a smart lady but does not know how to teach. She is very disorganized, does things backwards and reads straight from the power point without going in depth of the terms meanings.Tests are random and nothing like what she has you study. Also she cares more about the texters than trying to get through a lesson. DON'T take her

Very helpful and positive!! This is my first time taking a Chemistry class and I was a little intimidated going into it; but Dr. Sindhuvalli eased my concerns with her smile and her awesome reviews. She incorporates specific lesson planning to fit the needs of her class and their learning styles. I'm very happy I ended up in this class!

This class is probably not as hard with any other teacher but with her she makes everything difficult. When you get confused, if you ask a question she will be condescending and give a smart remark. Also, her material in class she goes over does not correlate with what is in mastering biology. Do not take her for this class!!!
