She's GREAT. Just listen to her and re-read the notes. Did not really interact that much with her, but she is always willing to help anyone. She knows biology extremely well.

I'm a diver, so I was already interested in Marine Bio, BUT with all that aside, She is an AMAZING Professor. Absolutely my favorite! She always explains things to the fullest extent fpr question. Tests are all based on lecture notes (with a few things from vids/side notes). She's so sweet, like a mom, and I wish I could take her again! <3 you Dr!

BEST TEACHER EVER! Her lectures take up the whole class period & sometimes she goes super fast so I suggest you record her because sometime she says things she doesn't put in the notes. NO quizes & her test are straight from the notes, all multiple choice. Honestly you can pass her test by studying just the notes. TAKE HER!

Bower is a very nice and fantastic professor. The semester I took she had to cancel a few classes for health reasons, but she was always rescheduled due dates accordingly. Her exams were typically easy, with little points being weighted on the lab. A very attainable A!

Great Teacher!! Exams are straight foward. Unlike some teachers I have had, she doesn't waste class time on tangents. She only teaches things that will be on the exam and she doesn't give anything on exam that is not covered in lecture. You have no reason to not get an B or higher unless you just don't care, then that is your fault.

Really great teacher. You don't really need the book as long as you take good notes and don't dose off. Exams easy, alot of it ends being extra credit so over 100% is possible. I have over 100% in this class and I have struggled in the past in school but a great teacher is all you need to have interest and she truly knows how to teach the facts.

A very nice and knowledgeable Professor. Very reachable and very patient on explaining things. Her tests are all based on her PowerPoint. Therefore tests are easy if you have good English, because there are many difficult terms to memorize. But, overall a fun class.

Take this class of you want to pass bio!!! She's really nice and all of her tests are based on her notes that she takes in class. 65 percent is a C in her class so it shouldn't be a problem to pass. I highly recommend this teacher!

This is the hardest course I ever took. I really worked hard, but got a good grade. If you take copious notes in lecture you'll do well. Very fast paced. Labs are fun.

She tests on the lecture only. If you read the book you dont have to go to lecture lab is fun if you like cells and bio in general and they are easy too.

I like her class! She only test you on the things she go over in class, so the tests become very easy if you just study your notes! no need to get a textbook. Take her!

Dr. Bower is an excellent professor! She runs scantrons right after exams so that you can get your grade right away, and know why you made exam mistakes. Study spelling and plural forms of terms. The only sad thing is 1/2 the class OPENLY cheats on labs, but 1/2 the class is receiving an F. Stop cheating, do your own work, and you will do fine!

her favorite sentence is "if u think ur way through." i like her because she doesn't seem fake and girly she is a little clumsy. when students dont answer her questions in class she just answer them for us and never be mad like some prof. who get mad about why student dont answer. bower is optimistic

AWESEOME ! enuff said. Take notes, study them and get A. It's simple as that. Read your textbook for sections covered in class, then getting an A is more guranteed. I basically study the night before for about 3 to 5 hours before every test, got A at the end with 91%. Dr. Bower= SIMPLY THE BEST and a very cute and energetic young lady :).

Whoever says that she's rude is out of their mind. Dr. Bower is one of the nicest people I have come across at PCC. She is an excellent teacher, and knows her stuff well...she is one of those people who can't stop running their mouth when you ask one simple question (the answer is in that long explanation somewhere, you just got to dig to find).

She is great and she cares. I sit in the front and I really listen to everything she teaches. It is really a fun class if you make it so. Ask her questions, she will answer them with great detail. Not hard at all if you take good notes. And make your presentation interesting. Got an A, and so can u!

Although the subject matter can be dry--especially at 7am--if you pay attention in class and take good notes there is almost no doubt that you will get an A on the tests. Her tests are almost all extra credit anyways.
