DO NOT TAKE HER. She is the worst teacher ever. She pretends to care but she really doesn't. You are not able to make up any tests under ANY circumstances. She's horrible.

Professor Corn is great. She has very short quizzes which are straight from the notes and if you pay attention to her lectures are very easy. Her tests are much longer but they are everything from the notes, no surprises. Make sure to attend every class because if you miss one you can't make it up and stay after if you need help, her 1 on 1s help!

Such a nice person. I don't understand why there is any hate for professor corn. Very clear with her expectations and lectures. Gives you guided notes so you can stay on track. Tests are very fair. The problem is that her students (or just alot of people at bucks) do NOT want to put in the work. Take her if you can, honestly she's the best.

BIOL 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Excellent teacher. Expects a lot from her students. Do not take her if you are not willing to work hard and study a good amount. Labs are long but she grades fair if you do the work! Doesn't try to trick you on tests and gives outlines of all things you need to know before the test. No surprises. Final is rough so do well on tests before.

Ignore people who say she's rude and unhelpful - that is completely wrong! I'll be honest, you have to WORK in this class but if you do you will get the grade you deserve. She goes very in-depth but she knows what she's talking about. The material is hard but that's the nature of the subject. She was always willing to help me - I loved her!

It is impossible to get an A in lab in her labs and going really fast in chapters.Therefore, her lectures are not clear.

I wouldn't suggest her to anybody. The material is easy but just how she teaches it makes it that much more difficult. General consensus of the class is that she makes it a horrible place to be

She is a sarcastic woman with no children and doesn't believe in God. What can you expect from a professor like her. She does not speak she SQUAWKS! She gives lectures so loud that it gives me a headache every single class. I do NOT recommend her at ALL! I'm a bio major and I used to love it but with her it is impossible. If anything take FIEDLER

BIO101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lectures were mostly pretty interesting and Corn provides an outline of each chapter. However, I worked sooo hard and barely passed the class! The labs were fun, but the lab homework was so hard and it's almost impossible to get an A. The only extra credit she gives is 10 extra points for an essay on the Exams. All the exams were VERY hard and long

Joan Corn is a wonderful teacher. Her lectures are interesting, and useful if you are serious about biology, unfortunately she's not very organize with the course material and you will have to study a lot on your own. Labs are impossible to get an A on and you might have to write a lit review. Lot's of work. Decide for yourself

Her outlines and PP presentations do not correspond. The labs are scheduled out of time with materials covered. Big disconnect between information provided. Scheduling labs, tests and lectures was extremely poor. Her sentences are convoluted in lecture as are the questions on tests and quiz's

I took her class because of all the good reviews she had on here. I dont know if shes different this semester or what, but she is not a good teacher. Very difficult tests and she makes you seem dumb when you dont understand something. Do not recommend.

Fantastic teacher, an A is very obtainable in this class, she gives you a week to turn in labs and the connect site for the textbook has pre-quizzes that are helpful. She has a lot of discussions and gives a lot of honest answers...she is not an evil-pro-evolution-and-that's-it kind of professor, she is open minded. I am taking her for 102.

Professor Corn is a good teacher. Her classes are boring because all she does is lecture, however the outlines she give you of notes is pretty much word for word on the tests. It's a lot of information, don't study the night before the test, too much information. But if you review your outlines, your good.

I took her class the first time she was teaching it so there was a learning process. At first her tests were very difficult but later on they got much better. Do the extra credit it helps so much, the quizes are challenging. Very helpful and will explain anything as long as people bother asking her to :)
