"Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Dr.B loves biology and will talk about it for days. Labs are easy and she will give you the answers to the tests in lab before you take a quiz which is every lab. She knows what shes talking about but is not good at teaching it. Exams are tough & if you do not like bio then you will not get it in this class . Everything is fast paced and confusing

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

I LOVE HER! She saw that i was trrying and she will bump your grade if you meet the reqiurement. Like if your grade is a 69.5, she'll bump to 70. Shes helpful and you can tell she feels bad when people do bad in her class. Friendly, Good Teacher, Smart, and would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone who is not a big fan of science like i am!!

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

SHE WANTS EVERYONE TO GET AN A. JUST FOLLOW WHAT SHE SAYS. SHE ALWAYS EMPHASIZES WHAT IS GOING TO BE ON THE TEST WHICH IS USUALLY FROM THE POWERPOINT OR JEOPARDY GAMES. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL EXTRA CREDIT

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C+

DO NOT TAKE HER! She hands out easy study guides which are the COMPLETE opposite of the test. She is a PowerPoint Professor, but she does give mandatory background information during class to help with the test and worksheets. Her lab is easy, but there's always a quiz so be on time! I studied hard, always showed up and got a C+ for the semester.

She's very excited about what she teaches, loves it. This class is challenging but if you show up and take notes you'll pass. Exams are super difficult be sure to study up.

BIO 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Before attending this class I had a preconceived notion that this was going to be a very hard class because of my previous Micro prof. Dr. B is an amazing and passionate prof and is willing to help you if you help yourself. The assignments are fun and if you pay attention and study, you will make a good grade. VERY fair professor! LOVED her!!

BIO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Intelligent and observant... you can very much tell that she LOVES what she does. Makes an effort to personally know each student to the best of her ability. Her hobbit-like size suits her witty personality very well, shes too adorable. Definitely my favorite professor, the type you actually want to ask questions because of the way she answers you.

Bio 101 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

Such an amazing professor! She truly cares about the student, even giving numerous extra credit assignments that boost your grade! There were three tests and an optional final. She did a resource hunt at the end of the semester, which was practically an easy A if you followed the instructions. She gave quizzes out in lab, but went over them before.

I was scared my some of the comments on here but if you do your work and put a reasonable amount of effort into it you'll be fine. People complain because they slack off and don't study. Her labs are very straightforward and she helps with them a lot. I would definitely take her again. It was a great class!!

Horrible professor! I was late to class due to unusual traffic and I already live 1 hour away so she gave me a zero for a class quiz. Anything she ever explains is never explained clearly but it shouldn't even matter cause its never on the exams. I got a B+ but if it weren't her class I was taking I would've have had a 4.0 GPA

Dr. B is the best I loved her! If you're here to get an education take her. If you want a spoon fed A don't even think about it.

I showed my friend who's a bio major at a 4-year university her tests and she was surprised how hard they were for a bio 101 class. Her tests have a 55% average, very small to no multiple choice. I had a 4.0 before this class and it ruined my gpa.

Nice, funny, and helpful. Good if you're a bio major, otherwise, don't take this class. My 3.5 GPA dropped drastically because of her class and though she's a nice person, i would NEVER recommend this to anyone. ever.

hard class, but still an awesome teacher. somehow makes her lectures the least boring as possible and is ALWAYS willing to help. the only people that fail her classes are the people that refuse to accept the extra help she is willing to give.

nice & funny, but dont take her. 55% average on her tests, lots of homework that can help your grade, but only if you actually get the questions right. goes too fast on powerpoints, AND SHE KNOWS EVERY STUDENTS NAME EVEN WHEN A HUGE CLASS. she will notice if youre not there. and must go to labs, quiz every lab day. dont take even if last option

The thing about Dr. B is, if you are not trying she can tell. I don't personally have that much interest in the subject but Dr. B saw I was making effort and she helped me a lot. To pass this class sit in the front section, read the chapters and do the work in lab, I got C's and B's on the tests and still passed with a B. Great Proffesor.

Dr. B is a great teacher. She is soo helpful and really cares about her students. As long as you keep working hard she is willing to help you succeed. Her tests are really hard and you need to study for them, but she provides study guide which helps a lot. She also has a game called BIO JEOPARDY for review for the test. She is fair grader.
