BIOL 466 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Better Like Group Projects" "Participation matters" "Tests? Not many"

Grades made up of only presentations and catalyst quizzes. Presentations were not bad, but quizzes kind of stressed me out even though you could work with other students. Just do well on your group presentations and fairly well on your catalyst quizzes and expect a high grade. She is sassy, awesome, and fairly lenient on regrades. She's great!

Bio 220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Zeman was a great lecturer and shows a lot of passion in animal physiology. However, her exams can be a bit tricky and application is necessary. Bio is a hard course anyway, so studying is indeed a must. She even visit students in labs :)

Biol 360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

AWESOME PROFESSOR EVER. Her classes are tough, but she will commit enough time to explain every detail you need to know. Her office hours are very helpful, and she will never turn you down if you just walk into her office with a bunch of questions at any time. If you take her lectures seriously and read textbook, you will do great in the exams.

Biol 403 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely amazing. The amount of effort she put into this course was unbelievable, and she truly cared whether or not we learned. Exams were pretty tough, but she graded very liberally, focusing on how well we could defend our observations. I've never had a prof be so enthusiastic about the material. By far the best prof in the bio dept.

You'd think that after decades of teaching, she'd be a bit better at it. Her teaching style is completely different from the norm. She has quizzes in addition to midterms and the stuff is cumulative. Her test questions are impossibly difficult. Avoid at all costs. Her class will kill your GPA & any desire to take another bio course ever again...

She's really helpful in office hours, but exams are more like solving engineering problems. Do NOT expect to memorize stuff and be able to pass this class. Be prepared to think like a scientist, know *processes* instead of facts, and you should do ok. Professor Zeman knows A LOT about physiology, don't be afraid to ask questions. :)
