The class was an easy requirement, but it's pretty useless to pay money to have to Google all the right answers (which she herself recommends). Her first rule was to ask questions yet she was rude every time I had to ask. She admits to not being interested in teaching this course. An easy class since you choose your project assignments.

She is very convenient with attending class. There are weekly quizzes. You have 2 attempts to take them. Pretty easy. I was not a fan of the group project. Which she turned everyones group project into the final which took me forever because it was like an exhibit but you are allowed to work together.

She is a great person. This class is designed for you to do what suits your skills and ethics. Do the easy assignments, which I did. People tend to make this class harder than it really needs to be. If you organize yourself weekly, as I did, you can actually get ahead and finish out the class strong and not wait till the end to complain. PREPARED!

attending class is not mandatory but you do receive points just for showing up. she posts everything online which is helpful. if you're bad with deadlines, do not take this class. students choose all of the assignments they want to do. online quizzes once a week that require google most of the time. she is a great person but not the best professor.

Its a lot of homework but you don't take any exams just weekly online quizzes which you have 45 minutes to do and get to take it twice. Besides that show up to class and you earn your points. Also have to do assignments roughly 15 and 1 group project.

For us, the non bio, chem (anything related to science) majors, this class was really easy. Yes I admit it she made a few mistakes and was a bit confusing at times but her assignments are beyond easy. I received a B because I was not as organized as I should of been. She even let's you decide what assignments to do. I actually learned many things in this class. It was different from other classes & I love her attitude. I highly recommend her :)

This was the worst class I took last semester. There's a ridiculous amount of work for a 100 level class. She treats all of her classes, including the "hybrid" ones the same, so everyone does the same work. However, if you took it as an online class, you'll be teaching yourself and Googling all of the answers during the quizzes.

Absolutely the worst lab professor.She is never on time nor prepared and sometimes has no idea what she's doing.Careless has a dirty mouth and she's the type that will say "ya that looks fine turn it in," and she'll take off points on what SHE TOLD you was ok.I fell like shes trying to prove that shes a "tough" professor when shes just clueless.

The class would have been easier if she had been a little more organized and if she hadn't taken the lazy approach to teaching. I normally get A's in science classes. Outside of class though she is an awesome person and I found out we actually have a lot in common, but I would not recommend her class to anyone.

By far the worst lab teacher I've ever had. She grades with no mercy and it's nearly impossible to get an A in her class. She doesn't tell you anything relevant to the lecture exam. She gives too much homework during exam week. DO NOT TAKE HER. Stick with someone else if you want your grade spared!!!! Worst experience ever it's pretty sad.

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. She allows you to choose your own assignments. You can make this class as hard as easy as YOU want. She knows biology and is an excellent prof. She tries her best to make bio fun and interesting and makes an effort to relate to her students. This class requires a lot, but nothing impossible.

Definitely the worst class ever. So much homework and she preaches about time management yet waits until the last minute to grade. Also she down plays quizzes, but they are a big chunk of the grade yet she hardly lectures on them. Way to much work for non-majors bio don't take it

Really nice, pretty knowledgeable about biology, Easy online tests. The only bad part is this 100 level non majors bio class easily takes up twice as much time as my 5 other 300-400 level classes combined. Take another class, its not worth it.

This class is unorganized. I am an A-B student, even got a B+ in BIO130 which has a lab. Got a C- here. Rachel is unclear and takes a lazy approach to teaching. She does have large knockers though

I LOVED this class. It's true she allows you to use google for online quizzes, but I mostly used the notes I took in class. She is always available to answer any questions you have, is understanding, & is VERY helpful. Yes, there is work, but there are no tests & you get to pick assignments that are interesting to you. Highly recommend this prof.

Absolutely horrible. She forces students to rely on Google rather than her lectures, and she assigns far too many things for a 100-level class. She allows you to pick the majority of the assignments to complete, but there are so many of them it's pointless. Bio 100 should not consume most of my time.

GPA DEATH!!! Dont take her!! STAY AWAY!!!! She was not experienced enough to lead a microbiology lab, I learned NOTHING!! She couldnt even figure out how to separate my two unknown microbes!! HORRIBLE! She lets the class grade final presentations and was NEVER prepared for class. She worried more about setting up Pandora on her laptop than us!

You basically have to be a grad student with extensive knowledge in biology if you want to enjoy this class. Also, as someone else said, tests are a race to find everything on the internet before time runs out. Have fun driving to Ann Arbor for field trips. Or for the adventurous, have fun hiking through Hines Drive on a 20 degree day.
