"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

She's a good person and very funny. She helps if you go to her. But in general you have to spend AT LEAST 10 hours a week studying for this class alone. Tests are NO JOKE

I'm a Bus Major, got an A. Don't stress.

Not the easiest teacher. This class will take up a majority of your time. She goes through material quickly and does not make her tests easy. She uses Mastering Biology and takes attendance but does not give extra credit for it. The one major assignment given is a lab report. In lab there are weekly assignments due on Turn It In and in class.

BIOL 1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Drumtra is a really great teacher!! The first class will feel bland, but it gets much more interesting! You *need* to attend every class, she goes over the material fairly quickly (plus you get extra credit for attendance). The tests are hard, but she does her best to prepare you. And you have to study A LOT!!

BIOL 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She takes her classes very serious, and expects you to know a lot of material prior to signing up. She wants the best for her students, but is not the best at answering questions and clarifying material. You need to keep up with the studying and notes or you will fall behind. All of her test are multiple choice with a cumulative final.

One tough cookie! She is clear and very helpful! But you better show up to class and you better study! I studied for hours and still barely passed! Lab was fun but a lot of work! Seriously, if you are looking for an easy professor, she is not it! But she is a great teacher.....so you decide!

Bio1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Drumtra is an awesome teacher! Had her for lab also! Smart & very knowledagble, always offers help. After taking her classes I changed my major to bio. Classes are super fast paced but she is always organized & efficient. Grades are promtply returned. Her tests are extremely difficult unless you go to lecture & know the info backward/forward.

Professor Drumtra is the BEST! She is super smart and helps out the best that she can. She knows her stuff and if you state that she's not she is!!! The class is hard but if you study and pay attention to her guides, you will pass the class. I recommend her.

Wow - had her for lab. She is a hard grader. By the third assignment, I realized she was verbally giving us the answers to the homework assignments the week before they were due!! All I had to do was listen and take good notes. After that I did great! Oh, she takes off for grammar and spelling.

She makes everything very simple to understand in class. You think you understand it, and then you get the test and its like a scientist wrote it. I studied almost everyday and received all C's on her tests. Nice woman, very helpful, but her class is ridiculous.

Absolutely great professor. I was terrible in science and never enjoyed it in high school so I've really put this course off for a long time. Anybody who doesn't do well is simply lazy and not paying attention. Come to class, do a little studying, and you're good to go.

BIOLLLab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had Drumtra for lab, and although I ended up with a 90, I wouldn't take her again. Go for Hyslop! Drumtra took every opportunity she could to penalize me and she grades kinda harshly. The only plus is a good bit of extra credit. If you miss a class your grade automatically drops a letter grade. Yes, an entire letter grade. Ridiculous!

Mrs. Drumtra is amazing. I really enjoyed her class. I would encourage students to take her. Even though I am a nursing major this was my favorite class. Good Job Mrs. Drumtra

She gives you access to all her lecture slides. This is all she uses for lectures and exams. Doesn't us the book at all. Exams are her only grade so make sure you study the powerpoints and you should be fine.

Continued... After her help, I realize I would have been fine had I attended lecture. You MUST attend lecture and take alot of notes if you want to pass this class. I think that the people on here that are giving her poor quality more than likely did not attend every lecture or take notes bc everything she says is on exams. Ask for help people!!!!

When I first started in Drumtra's class I didn't do so well b/c attendance wasn't necesssary so I didn't come. I got 2 D's and a C on the first three exams and was very frustrated. So I emailed her and she was willing to dedicate her time that she could spend at home to give me extra help. I got 100 plus's on the last 3 exams, including the final.
