"Amazing lectures" "Tests are tough" "There for you"

I really liked this zoology class. Betsy has very interesting lectures and teaches you little facts you'd probably otherwise never learn. Shows amazing videos in class. I think she has clear expectations, I've never had an issue preparing for her tests. She prints off her powerpoints, so study those and the lab packets- you'll be good.

Bio 253 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I'm not a huge fan of biology but I liked the way she printed her power points into packets for your notes. The tests covered quite a bit of material and were fairly long but if you take time to study you should do fine. Like all good classes, you have to work a little for a decent grade. She's a nice teacher and enjoys answering your questions.

"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader"

She's tough her Lab exams are extremely hard! she's a nice person. She gives you a study guide the day before the exam but she tells you don't study the day before. Lecture exams are very specific she gives the same 5 choices for 12 questions typical and you better not mix up your phylums on those. Lab exams no guidance of what will be on them

BIOL 308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

Extremely disorganized, will waste your time, confusing lectures, confusing syllabus, and requirements are unclear. If you disagree then you will get a bad grade, thus my B+. And I have over 150 credits and a 3.963 GPA. She's a worthless lecturer and worthless human being. She is boring and coughs the entire class period. Worst class ever, no joke!

Very confusing course. Not organized. It was very easy due to the lack of organization. Had 3 tests and 6 online discussions.

This class was AWFUL. She changes what you are supposed to do daily and is not clear about anything. You can't crunch 15 weeks into 3 and do everything you do in the 15 weeks and she tries to.

Biol 308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Gerbec is a great professor! She's funny, helpful and sweet, but she also can be very strict at times. She is my advisor and I lovr her and everything but she tells you that this class is easy. Well it is except for the tests. There is just too much to study for on the test. She likes to make her tests hard even if it is just for a elective

Graduating this year and Betsy is by far my favorite professor. Friendly, funny, helpful. She really likes to see everybody succeed and she makes class interesting. Really great as a person, advisor, professor, and club advisor for the Pre Health Society. Nothing bad to say.

Gerbec is a really nice professor and wants you to succeed and know the material! She was very helpful with me and a couple other students who were worried about an exam and she gave us feedback on what to study! You have to put time in to study but definitely worth it!

Betsy is the best professor i have ever had! She is very nice and is willing to help with anything if you ask her. Study your notes and it also helps to rewrite the notes. Pay attention in lab and take good notes because her tests are difficult, but as long as you study your notes then you'll be fine. Also do not slack in her class. Take her!

Fantastic teacher, always willing to help. Gives you the handouts as well as study guide, go to class and study and you're golden. She wants you to do well and she gives you all the tools to do that. She is also entertaining and shows videos to help break up lecture.

Very easy class, especially with her as a teacher. She hands out packets for notes and goes over everything that will be on the tests. She doesn't have the powerpoints online so go to class and it's an easy A.

She's a very entertaining professor. Knows alot but is willing to research if she does not have the answer to a specific question. Tests can be difficult if you do not study. I really enjoyed her class. I would definately recommend her.

Very dull and dry speaker, not very engaging. Notes are presented in a rather boring manner, are sometimes contradictory and are filled with spelling and grammatical errors. Very nice lady though.

Good teacher. Class was challenging but if you study you can do pretty well. She's also a really nice lady. She's very reasonable about grading and absolutely loves answering questions from students. You can tell she likes her job.
