The class was hard, but I learned a lot and enjoyed attending her class. I also enjoyed Dr. Saheba's humor. I came to class regularly for lectures, re-read powerpoints, hardly opened the book, and was able to get a B in the course.

Bad professor, she has made a lot of mistakes in class, if you try to correct her she won't let you and she will keep going with the class. Avoid her.

Biology 1305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

See here is the thing: If you want to actually learn, take her class. She is hard, you will have to attend and study, allot. Her tests are hard and slightly different from her lectures because her exams are comprehensive, you learn something in lectures and the exam is not the exact thing but us based on it.

Ridiculous professor. She is very hard to understand, and doesn't explain herself well. SHe reads off a powerpoint her whole lecture. Likes to confuse students with exam wording. No curve, no reviews, no time to do her extra credi b/c of the ridiculous amount of studying you must do to attempt her exams. very stressful semester with this class

bio1305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The absolute WORST teacher I have ever encountered. Unless you want to fail or drop this class, do not take it with her. I studied and stressed for countless hours and only had a D! I was forced to drop the class, due not being able to have a GPA under 3.5.

This class was very difficult for me. Entering as a freshman I studied but not as much as your suppose to when taking this class. Her test are very difficult if you don't read like everyone says, but I still suggest you don't take her

Hands down the best professor I've ever had. She's so intelligent, and she truly cares about her students learning. She's so so great. Always available at her office and she's so funny. Her class keep me interested always. Don't expect an easy A; actually an A is hard. You'll have to work for it, but she's so great, it won't be a burden.

Very nice, always available. BUT she is very difficult. Her tests are confusing and have little to nothing from her powerpoints. Your book will be your life. If you don't mind reading, take this class! If you hate reading, look elsewhere.

Professor Saheba is very intelligent and did a wonderful job in teaching this class. Although she is not easy, she is simply trying to push you to WANT to learn and be successful. I absolutely LOVED this class. Her availability is outstanding and she really wants her students to succeed. GREAT CLASS AND WONDERFUL PROFESSOR.

Overall the class was a little bit challenging, but not overwhelming. I got a C on my first exam. But once i got familiar with the tests i made good grades on the rest of them. Managed to get a solid A because of help from up to 10 percentage points of ex credit. Used book internet and homework for study. Professor seems smart but a bit opinionatd

Her class is very difficult for freshman level. She does provide the lecture power points on black board. Check homework twice for tricky questions. Make sure to read before the class. She offers 5% extra credit if you make a powerpoint on a medical condition. Her exams are very difficult. Study hard.

This class is rough but it will definitely prepare you for future course. Passing with a B or A is possible! all the other people that drop are people who've never had to actually work hard in a college course ! Her final exam is actually the easiest test.. its almost like a gift . Definitely take this class is you wanna see what your made of.
