Biol101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I read the older posts and thought she would be OK but she must have gone senile because she is SO unorganized, gives multiple tests per day, WILL NOT tell you your current grade (she prob. doesn't KNOW herself) and is LOOPY in her instruction. At times told us flat FALSE facts only to punish us on the tests later! DROP NOW!

BIOL100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is completely incompetent, she repeats things she has already said, she stopped doing experiments halfway during semester in labs, turned into 3 hours of extra lecture to the hour and a half she already did, I never got my test grades at all even after I went to her every class and asked for them. DO NOT TAKE HER, at all costs.

BIO100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is so unorganized its ridiculous. You might as well find another teacher already. She should have retired 5 years ago. Puts everything off, shows up late, and sometimes doesn't show up at all. Didnt show up 2 of the last 3 days of class. Nice lady but she makes your head spin because of her scatterbrained attitude. Start looking for a new Prof.

BIO100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Terrible organization. She has yet to pass back and go over test scores. Its towards the end of the semester and I still do not know what my grade is. When she gets behind she will cram 2 tests into one day that will not correspond. She is very nice and you can tell she is passionate for the subject. But i would look for another teacher.

BIOL100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very nice, tries hard to meet needs of students, an easy class as long as you attend class and pay attention, & her study guides are very helpful ... ALTHOUGH, shes can be very unorganized, late in returning work, and doesn't keep up with her "word"- as in tests aren't usually when she says they are...

Worst teacher ever! 1.) Gave us syllabus FOUR weeks AFTER class started. 2.) Often gave MULTIPLE tests on one day (a test and a quiz or two quizzes, etc.), 3) Gave us waitlisted people BAD permission codes and NEVER fixed the problem (had to deal with the registration office for EVER to fix it) 4.) jumps around and is very confusing. 5)etc. BEWARE!

she is a very nice teacher. but she is soooo out there! i really dont know where her brain goes sometimes, so it makes it hard to understand what she is teaching. She jumps around subjects, so i ended up teaching myself half the semester. seems like she is way to smart for her own good and it doesnt really make for the best professor.

Presents material well - exteremely clear on EVERY detail. Provides notes/study guides for students and goes out of her way to make sure you understand it. Genuinely cares for students. She missed class a few times due to personal emergencies - but was late once. Overall a fabulous instructor (I got 100 in the class) highly recommended.

This teacher is infinetly patient. She is willing to come to school on her free days just to help you. Her study guides are FABULOUS. She even prints out the most important lecture notes.Sometimes she is a scatterbrain but overall a A+ teacher!

Dr. Gage is an extraordinary teacher. She is everything you could ask for in a teacher, and she makes sure you pass her class with flying colors. I am not kidding this lady bends over backwards for each and every student. Although she is disorganized, sometimes late, and out of it at times, she is still highly recommended.

Misses class alot and is late pretty much everyday. Kinda out of it. Crams everything in to the last exam. this semester she puts 6 exams into 1 final. very unorganized. very difficult semester. BUt,shes super sweet. Its hard to be upset w/ her but when you need this class for your nursing GPA you get kinda bummed. Make sure you NEED this class.

She seems out of it, sometimes doesnt show up to class and then hits you with a test the next class. TONS AND TONS of tests, she bases the whole class on tests. No final but 5 unit exams that account for 90% of the total grade, very hard tests, but she gives out a lot of study guides. If you study ALOT the class wouldnt be to bad...

Very sweet lady. I would not recommend this class for those who got all A's in HS science. This will be a very boring review for you. Her labs are like kindergarten (cut, paste, draw.) However, if you struggled in HS, she will walk you through. Her study guides are wonderful and if you do them you will pass with no problem.
