V1126 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B
"Hilarious" "Amazing lectures" "There for you"

I have her for Ana 1 and she's an awesome teacher. I have a blast in her class. She's very helpful and always there if you need any help. Ana is a hard course so don't expect it to be easy. I love the fact that she has lectures, videos, power points, and everything ready for you. All you do is print them out and follow along. Highly recommend!!!

Biology003 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B
"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Clear grading criteria"

This is a pretty difficult class; you will find yourself studying for hours, and even that didn't help me get an A. You have to UNDERSTAND, and not just memorize, for it wont help you much. This biology isn't even for majors and yet, it will put a dent in your GPA. Unless your really good at biology and other sciences, I probably would say nay.

bio 1153 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is amazing, always helpful and willing to give extra credit to make sure we are passing.She posts all the powerpoints for lecture ahead of time and she has already made outlined notes for you so all you have to do is actually pay attention and study. She also supplies you with practice test and review sheets before the exam. You will learn!!

Anatomy 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

it is a hard class and you have to study alot. a lot of memorization and exams are hard. if you don't want to study don't take her because you will not able to pass it. Do all extra credits that she gives, that would help your grade alot.

Anatomy 001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

If you study, the class is very do-able. If you don't study, you're in deep trouble. Dr. Brockmann has certain information she's required to teach during the semester, and there's a LOT. She's a brilliant teacher who does the work, & is there for the students if needed. She grades fairly and simply wants us to do well. Great teacher!

Bio 3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C-

Extremely difficult class. Does not grade on a curve, does not drop a test score, each test is 2-4 chapters long and has 70-100 questions. Teaches extremely fast and changes point values on tests AFTER the test was taken which decreases your grade. Previous reviews are based on personality and not teaching ability. sweet woman, but bad teacher.

Anatomy 001 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a great teacher. She's very helpful and FUN. Although she's fast-paced, she gives the students time to have study groups in class and Mock Exams (basically a copy of the exam) a meeting or two before the actual test. I recommend taking her.

Biology 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is very fast paced. I did not like her class at all. We had 6 midterms and a final for her fall semester and half the time the students were the ones clarifying her teaching rather then her. She doesnt do extra credit points and she never takes roll. First bad grade i got at LAVC.

She is the most amazing prof. Ever. She is so knowledgable and has so much passion for teaching. She deserved the best of the best. She never make you disappointed. I got bad grade in one of the exams. I asked if there is any possibility for A. She went through my grades and said yes if get strong A in the rest. I kept hope, tried hard and made it.

micro20 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Brockmann is one of my favorite professors I've had. I took her class over summer and it was very fast paced, we covered about 4 chapters a week with tests and quizzes each week. She was very straight forward and made lectures interesting and simple. Some people didn't seem to like her but I thought she was very nice and helpful. Take her!

Anato001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very challenging class. Lots of studying. Not the kind of class you can cram last minute. The test are difficult. Make sure to attend class, she does keep track. Also, make sure to do all of the worksheets that she assigns and do keep track of them yourself. She is fair, does offer extra credit. Make sure to do it all.
