You can tell that she knows her material. She is very precise and to the point. Great study guides and the exams were easy to read.

Class was online. Her class seemed unpredictable, it seemed as though quizes (once a week) was material from the book while exams covered material from the slides. I did not know how to study for this class the whole semester. :( At the end I went to her office and she gave to clear pointers on what to study for the last exam (not cumulative).

McGuire is definitely knows her stuff and gives a study guide that really helps for the test. She is sort of tough but not too bad if you prep well. She's helpful in office hours but makes you feel like an idiot lol. Overall, nice lady and a caring prof.

Excellent professor, she takes pride in teaching. I learned a lot by attending her classes. She posts all her lectures on online videos, and offers plenty of extra credit, if you have the opportunity take her class.

Attendance not mandatory. Powerpoint presentations from every lecture are posted to Blackboard. Study guide is also posted. Read the chapters thoroughly and be able to answer the questions on the study guide. Extra credit quizzes are posted randomly on Masteringbiology.com.

worst class I have taken at state. Class is at 8 am and extremely boring. Not necessary to go but there are some ec quizzes in class. Tests are ridiculously hard and detailed, I studied for hours and still found it impossible to know everything. Luckily there is a lot of extra credit offered and I pulled off a B.

this class sucked. she expects too much detail for the amount of material she covers. the material isnt too difficult, but since it's combined with principle cell bio., its a really heavy load.

SHE IS THE HARDEST TEACHER I'VE EVER HAD. Her slides are almost all words and the tests are very very very detailed. You can't get away with understanding the material.. you have to KNOW it in depth because the way she poses test questions and multiple choice answers is so tricky. Some questions are short answer and she wants specific answers.

Tough subject but explained it well. Study the study guide and you will do very well on her part of the exam.

Excellent teacher. She's clear and concise and pretty interesting. If you pay attention, take good notes, and do her study guide, you'll have no problem.

Her test was fair, but the grading sucked. Yeah, don't try to see her outside her office hours...

She's a good professor and the material she taught was interesting. I've heard some horror stories about her though. So don't go talk to her outside her office hours. Do the study guide she gives out...she expects lots of detail in the midterm.
