Bio 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Reynolds is a tough teacher. She explains concepts well. If you go to EVERY class and take notes (you should print out her slides before class), you will be able to follow along. Her tests are STUDY-INTENSIVE! Application stuff, memorizing won't work. If you want to understand A & P, take her. If you are just trying to get through, don't.

Bio 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Do not take this professor. It appears that she has forgotten when she was a student, and thinks i's funny. She often brags about how hard her tests are, and wants you to read all her slides.. She states the text book is stupid, and not very helpful. She enjoys what she does, but makes it awfully difficult for the students to understand.

BIO141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Do NOT take her class if you want to actually learn and pass anatomy 1. Awful teacher, only goes over the slides she thinks is important. Only gives 4 tests, and does NOT prepare you for them. Never on the material she says. In lab she gives you the quiz then sits there. Doesn't explain or prepare you in anyway for the quizzes.

BIO101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I did not like her 8 week online BIO 101 course at all. I passed A&P 1 & 2 with flying colors with other teachers. There is no reason a BIO 101 course should have been made this difficult. Too much unnecessary info that is not even used on tests. Waste of time. I do not recommend her class at all.

She was a good teacher and she really wanted you to understand the information and do well in the class. There was a lot of work to keep up with in her 8 week online course but she was willing to work with you. I would not recomend her if you are taking several other classes as well but overall she was a very good teacher.

Do NOT take this professor for her 8-week Bio 101 class. Bio is easy, right? No. Not with her. She makes it far more complicated than it needs to be. I took Anatomy and Physiology, and I did just fine. Had the hardest time staying afloat in this lower-level Bio class. Know everything. No consistency at all!

Dr Reynolds was a great teacher. Although the course material was very detailed and demanding she explained things well and even offered extra credit in the lab. This course is hard regardless of the instructor.

Bio03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I was so nervous at taking her class first based on some of the comments that people had on RMF. However i did realized that she was not an easy A teacher, and she's a very intelligent women that will make you think really hard. I did a C good in her class, that's because i didn't put that much effort into it. lab was AMAZING with her!

Dr. Reynolds was a very challenging proffesor, but if you put your mind to it and study for her class you will be fine. If you have an intrest in bio you will enjoy her. I had no problem with her teaching she just wants her students to know bio. I would recommend her. I walked out of there with a B+ so I was happy.

Her class was VERY hard, I withdrew because I knew there was no chance on passing after taking 2 of her 4 tests which she bases the total grade on. You have to know every detail to pass her tests and then she re words everything to make it harder. She made it clear that her office hrs were not for study groups and would not help you, dont pick her.

She was HARD, but knew her stuff. NO study guides given, you need to know EVERYTHING. Only gives you 4 Exams, no homework, no extra credit, nothing but exams so YOU better do Well or Fail her class! Would not recommend her as a teacher unless you are taking this lecture class as a Refresher Course! Good Luck if you get her as a Professor!!!!

She was hard, but knew her stuff and wanted to make sure you knew yours. no study lines given, you need to know EVERYTHING. I walked out knowing and retaining more than i thought i would. I am so grateful for her teaching, it gave me a great foundation for my other science classes.

She loves what she does and you can really tell that. However, the class is very hard. Your grade comes from 4 tests only. She has her MD so she really wants you to know a lot of info. I wouldn't take her again because her tests were very hard and there wasn't a study guide. She tells you to make sure you know everything for the tests.

I had Dr. Reynolds for bio 101 lab her lab is easy compared to her lecture. She goes around and helps the people who ask for it. Grades were based off attendance two projects and quizzes we had a quiz about every class but they were easy. I got a B in her class and I hardly studied. Bottem line her lab is easy her lecture test are hard.

APAP Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She tells you from the beginning that the test will be hard BUT if you have any questions before, during or after the test to come to her. As long as you pay attention and go to class you'll do fine. She only gives 4 test so study the material daily. The book is "stupid" so she says, so I just read and re read her slides.
