She is not digging the whole teaching thing. It is a boooring class, but all the ppt are the answers to test, study them. Class is CURRENTLY Averaging at a D.. D for depressing. Easy class, but boring.

You don't need to show up for her class! Class is boring. You can pass the class very easily. Just study her power points. She is not passionate about teaching anymore. You can tell. She's not rude or anything but she really needs to consider looking for new teaching habits. :/

No complaints about the professor. Beware of taking this course with her during the summer though--was shortened to 8 weeks from the usual 10 and I think she tried to cover the same amount of material. Grades were based on many components, including 1 midterm and final. Study guides were LONG. Over half the class got a D or lower for the midterm.

Her class is easy. Class might be a little boring sometimes. You must study every single thing on her slides pass the three (not cumulative) exams. Gave extra credit by answering four module quizzes on the etext,all her lectures are online. I would take her again!

All power-points are posted online. 3 test in total and all are based on the power-points, so you don't really need to buy the book. Labs are easy, and she gives extra credit. An A is attainable if you study the power-points carefully. Overall great professor.

No need to attend lecture or open the book, all the notes are on blackboard. Study the powerpoints and you'll pass.

3 multiple-choice exams incl. final (non-cumulative) (the other 25% of grade is labwork). It's not too difficult to get an A--study guides for tests are posted on webCT, and questions come straight from the powerpoints. Lectures are not mandatory, and she often just reads from the slides.

She never returns emails, and has a difficult time standing up for her students! There was absolutely no help from her. She understands the classical approaches to biology, but she is lost with the new evolution of biology. I rather feel bad for her, as you get the feeling she wants to help you, but for some reason feels helpless and doesn't.

She comes in late every single lecture, reads out the ppts like a robot and tries to cover tons of material.Study guides simply tell u to review everything,not a real guide.it's true that you don't have to buy the text and come to lecture.

Took her for BIOL100B,C. She's a helpful and very nice professor. You can honestly get an A by just studying the PowerPoints, which means you really don't have to attend lecture. The exam material is very fair. Highly recommended.

Overall a agreat teacher, she knows her material, is hella approachable and reasonable. You do not need the book, in fact the exams are based on her lectures and powerpoints, which are hella helpful.

If you study the ppt and textbook you will get an A. A lot of extra-credit opportunity. If you fail this class you don't belong in science class. THE LAB BOOK'S OUTDATED!!! NEED TO UPDATE THEM FOR REALS!!!

Be careful with people who are saying, “I don’t learn anything,” what they mean is that they are not interested in biology. This a hard class if people do not study on their own, it is easy if study the powerpoint and study guide. There is a lot of info, so start way before the final. Not as hard as other sciences classes.

Had her for 100A and also 100B! Study guides helped a lot, it's just the lab assignments and the lab instructor screwed my grades up. Unhappy with the lab instructor but happy with Dr. Veno.
