GREAT professor. Simplifies an extremely complicated topic. Great lectures though you must come to class, she doesn't post notes and she always uses the chalkboard. Tests are tough, but nothing outside of lecture material. Extra credit opportunities and in class exercises to prepare for exams. Highly recommend.

Her tests are based on lecture and she is very specific about what answers she is looking for. Also, she is very clear in lecture and goes over concepts slowly so you understand the subject better. There is no need to buy the book.

Immunology - Zwollo is a really nice lady who knows a LOT about the subject, but doesn't do a great job of conveying it. Her lectures are very hard to follow and her tests are a major challenge, but then again, the material is inherently difficult. Take it if you're interetsed, but be prepared to work hard. Never skip class.

My favorite bio class so far. Straightfoward class despite the complicated material. A pleasant change from the intense difficulty of heideman's classes.

Pretty friendly, not moody. She did like the crazy multi choice style but dropped it after complaints. Tests reflected the key points from lecture and were usually straightforward, despite the complexity of the subj. Challenging, but very manageable class. In-class assignments pretty EZ. I took good notes, crammed before tests and pulled an A-

Best class in Biology that I have taken, hands down. I can now read primary literature with ease due to this class.

I was very interested in the class before, but now regret that I ever took it. The reading isn't that bad, but she's unclear in class and makes interesting material boring. Tests are a disaster. She likes MC with "circle ALL and ONLY that apply." Only 5 A's on first exam. Don't take the class.

Not too difficult to get an A. Stressful class though. Gotta keep up with the journal readings. Zwollo's demeanor kind of scared me but she is really nice.

You will learn a lot in her class...and she will answer questions...but she's kind of moody so watch out. Sometimes she can be the nicest person...and sometimes she's not... (I got an A in her class...so this is not speaking from bitterness).
