Bio 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a good teacher, but doesn't baby you. You need to put in the time to make the grade!

BIO 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is a hard teacher, but she is very helpful and always willing to meet with her students. She makes herself available to all her students. She knows her stuff very well, and the text is not used very much. Expect to study, remember you are in college she is not going to baby you. I fell in love with biology after her classes.

BIO 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Not "easy".She expects you spend time studying, AND reading text. I did. Everything on exams come from her powerpoints, very thorough. If you understand the concepts and can apply them you will do well. If all you want is to memorize an answer, forget it. Must be able to LISTEN/follow instructions. Whiners don't do well.

BIO202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a great person, really sweet and cares about people. She does not know how to teach however, she sits in the back of the room and says the "blankes" on the powerpoint. No pictures, nothing, if you have questions read the textbook.

BIO 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is by far the best instructor I have had at Chandler Gilbert Community College. This is not an easy class but if you work hard and ask questions, it is worth taking with her. If you are looking for an easy A then this class is not for you.

Bio 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr O is definitely the worst professor I have ever had. She is rude, condescending, and talks down to her students. Dr O does not care about the success of her students which is evident by the large number of Ds and Fs on her tests. She seems to find humor in the low test scores and posts them proudly.

Bio205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is by far one of the best teachers I have ever had. She isnt an easy A but she will actually teach you and you will walk away more knowledgeable. She understands that things happen in life and will get to know you. She is extremely straight forward and tests directly off her powerpoints. You can get by without a text.

BIO205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is awesome. She puts the information into language you can understand. If you listen closely to what she says, and study her power points (completely memorize them) you will do well in her class. It's not any easy class and she doesn't offer very much extra credit. You have to actually work and study to earn an A. It's not just given to you.

BIO 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is one of the best professors I have ever had. For all the people complaining about how hard her class is or how bad of a teacher she is must not be paying much attention in class. She is very clear on what she wants from her students and if you pay attention and put in the work achieving a high grade is fairly easy.

Horrible teacher. I got A's in both bio 201 and 202, but I can't even make it through her class.I study hard for this class and I know all the materials but Her exam questions are so tricky! She asks the same question at least 3 times on the same test! She is so unfair when she grades your paper with short answer questions.

BIO205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

By far the worst professor I have ever had! I do not recommend her to anyone that wants to learn anything about microbiology. Her teaching methods are horrible! I do not know how she even still has a job teaching.

To be honest if you think this class is hard you should not be in the medical field. She is really tricky on her tests so always double check your answers. She does this to prepare you in the medical field. You mess up once and you can kill someone is the moral she tried implant in us.

You will do fine in Dr.O's class as long as you do not allow yourself to fall behind. It is not hard, but you need to study. She gives you everything you need to get an A. She is very willing to help if you ask for it.

Worst teacher I have ever had. Powerpoints are terrible and hard to understand, and the exams are extremely hard and tricky (which are your only grades). Her class averages are low. She is extremely rude ,childish, and does not care. Like someone said, if you value your GPA, I would not recommend wasting any of your time in this class.

Dr. O is a great professor. She is a very strict person on her class but she does it so people can learn. Through out her semester she provides powerpoints which are all you study off, so its helpful. I honestly would take her again.

BIO202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O is a tough instructor but only because she expects her students to participate in the learning process. I had to work hard in this class but I learned the subject and am confident enough to go on. If you get a bad grade in her class it's your own fault, she gives you everything you need to succeed and will work with you if you need help.

I took her for 202, and am gladly taking her again for 205. Dont understand how anyone is saying she is a tough teacher. She condenses the book into power point and tests directly off her powerpoints. How is that hard? Very helpful, really love her class.

Dr. O is quirky, but knows her stuff and expects you to put in the work. She will help you if you ask, but will not babysit. The tests are not hard if study as you go along. You get what you put in with this class. My advise:STUDY, do the Pre-labs, and GO to class! She tests right off her power points. We hardly used the book- BIG waste of money!

Want the easy breezy way out of taking Micro?Don't take Orozco.If you want to really learn the subject/ know micro as a whole- take Orozco.She's not the kind of teacher that will sugar coat the subject.She's straightforward.She literally gives you ALL the material you need to know for tests-and leaves it to you to know it.Really enjoyed the class!!
