This class was hard for me. I know many people that did really well in that class. Very boring class. Get MWF because its only 50 minutes. If you have never taken Biology before (in high school) wait a semester or two. She expects too much and it can be overwhelming.

Dr. Bensen's class isn't too hard if you take good notes, pay attention in class, and do the homework assignments. She gives you lots of ways to earn points besides exams, such as online assignments and participation points. She also gives you time to take notes from her slides. The material can be overwhelming, but studying lots will get you by!

I think her tests are fair compared to the material she goes over in class,but I believe she gets way too detailed for a non-major biology. She will never let you out early but she is easy to get in contact with. Fair teacher but strict.

impossible. so hard and she makes it so much harder than it needs to be. especially for a non major class. she's really nice and will try and help you if you go talk to her one on one, but the class itself is so hard.

This woman is heartless. I was very ill on the day of a test. I could barely get out of bed, but I went to her and gave her a doctor's note, hoping she would let me take it at another time, but she said she didn't care if I was sick. I still had to take the test. Very pro-woman and health freak. Just awful.

She is a great teacher. Make sure you go to class and answer the clicker questions. As long as you do that, and do all of her study questions, you will do well on the tests.

She is a good teacher. Some people cant get past the fact that she will never be hopping around, making a theatrical scene for biology 101. She is serious, but she is helpful. She makes her best effort to get to know her students. If you pay attention, answer the clicker questions, take notes its really easy to make good grades.

At first I thought she was going to be a terrible teacher, but after a few classes I changed my mind. She isn't the most entertaining class and it can be a hard class if you don't pay attention. But she's very helpful if you ask questions and she's willing to work with you if she knows you're trying. If you just make sure to show up to class every day, she counts off for absences, and pay attention to her lectures you should be fine.

So HARD, and boring as hell, she expects wayyy to much out of her students. The final is impossible, and if youre not ready to commit all your time to this class dont take it.

She is one of the most BORING teachers i have EVER had. she thinks that her class is the most important class on campus (she said so herself) and she just sucks as a teacher. she has one monotone voice and will keep you until the very last second of class. don't bother being late to class cause she's been known to call people out on it.

Hard class but you can do well if you attend and pay attention. Gives 5 points everyday you attend. Clicker is needed for daily quizzes. Doesn't matter if you get the quiz wrong, only used for participation.
