Biology is not easy at all. In Dr.Priest's class,you have to work hard otherwise you WILL fail. She doesn't try to fail you on purpose, she wants you to pass. She is super helpful, smart, and an excellent teacher. I can honestly say I have never learned so much in a class before. My only regret is that I started taking the class seriously too late.

This class is SUPER hard. No one gets an A, and very few get B's. The majority of the class got C's or D's (mostly D's). I wouldn't take the class if you're a full time student with 3 other classes, or if you're a part time student. This class is SUPER demanding and stressful

This teacher has incredible expectations & teaches at an vigourously fast pace. She never acknowledges the fact that almost the entire class is constantly confused & falling behind. She just continues on to the next section. And now more than half the class has dropped. I believe her teaching skills are inadequate.

She was way to hard. If you have nothing else going on and have the time to put in some 10 extra hours of studying and working, go for it. If you're a lazy student that's going to try to get by as they go, look somewhere else.

If you're a person who expects to just show up and pass, dont even bother. Work must be put in to get a good grade. Not only does she give you the powrpoints ahead of time but you can also get her lectures, what more can you ask for?! Great professor and great class, definetly taking her again. An A is possible, but you have to work to get it

If you are a scholarly individual that can truly say you dedicate yourself to your studies, then this class is for you. Otherwise, don't take this class unless you want to waste 30$ on the hybrid online course account and not to mention expensive textbook & workbooks but at least you can get your money back on those. I have a 3.2 GPA because of her

This teacher is really bad. She treats us like high schoolers. Everything she lectures on has nothing to do with the exams. She's horrible. Expects us pay for a book we don't use and a 30$ trip to the aquarium. I don't understand how people actually pass her class.

Dr. Priest is a strict, but very caring professor. Biology is not aan easy class, but it is as easy as it could possibly get with Dr. Priest. You absolutely need to study and listen to all the hints that Dr. Priest gives you. Also use all the resources that you get in Course Compass because that really helps.

Bio 10 with Dr. Priest isn't an easy class because there is a lot of work. Dr. Priest has so much to offer, She makes bio 10 very interesting and relates it to daily life. Even when we didn't understand something she was there to repeat it for everyone and as many times. I learned so much from her, she's a great teacher!

Bio 10 is a very hard class. This class taught me how to work smarter and not harder. Bio 10 is a class you have to put effort in and attendance is mandatory. If you want to pass this class you need to use all the helpful resources that are there. Also don't take this class with other tense academic classes. Form study groups with your classmates

Don't take her if you're looking to coast through Bio 10. If you're looking to actually learn and you're willing to put forth the effort then take Dr. Priest, she is the most knowledgable teacher in her subject i've come across. Contrary to what people write, she wants her students to not only pass her class but be successful in their future.

Dr. Priest is a lovely woman. Even though I only got a C, I learned SO much from her that I am really happy I took her class. Dr. Priest really cares about her students, and that's why she expects a lot. She gives all the resources that a student could ever want, so use it wisely. You need to study a lot. Not an easy class, but it can be.

Dr. Priest is a great professor. What she teaches is what is exactly on her tests which are pretty easy if you study. People expect to just pass without putting in an effort but in a class like Biology you NEED to study. But Dr. Priest really makes it easy and fun. Her class is long but it is never boring with her. She really cares for her students

She is biased! She will grade you based on her choice of thinking if you have put in enough time, instead of actually grading by validity. She makes you pay for some online website account called coursecompass.com. It is $30. Find a better teacher! (trust me there are much better teachers).

Dr. Priest is the best professor if you want to REALLY learn Biology. She is an intelligent woman with a strong character but cares about teaching versus simply passing students. Her class has been the most challenging course that I have ever taken but at the same time the most gratifying. If you pass this class you can pass any class. Love her!

Dr. Priest is not a helpful teacher. The course was interesting but she becomes a Hitler in a snap second which I was willing to do the work, but when approached her she was extremely condescending. More than half of her class drops each semester and the ones who stay only about five pass with a C or B no room for A's .. HORRIBLE!!!
