My fault for not heading all of the reviews, don't take her! In terms of her expectations, to be quite frank, the are ridiculous. Too much work for an intro level class. For reviews she asks if anyone has any questions. Her expectation is that you know everything that has been covered and in detail and her tests are written as such. Avoid her...

This is probably the hardest class I've ever taken, but probably the most rewarding. I took this class right after BIO and CHEM 100, so it was tough. But after taking this class, other classes were a breeze. Dr. K is very tough and rather nit-picky on tests. Make sure your technique is on point. She's always watching even if you're in the back.

Dr. Kulkarni is a good teacher. She's the first bio teacher I've had that actually got me to understand the concepts rather than just memorize them. Her tests are pretty difficult but if you understand the material, you will do fine. She does nit pick your work, so be sure to be very thorough and include everything she mentions in lecture!

This is one of the worst teachers I ever had. I tough that the point of teaching is to help students to come to the knowledge not to punish them for every smallest mistake. Her expectations are like you are in Microbiology 400 not 230. I asked her to give us more time for the tests as she expect details in essays but she refused with the smile!

Dr. Kulkarni is very enthusiastic, but her expectations are unreasonable. The study guides do not accurately reflect what she actually tests on. Lots of group projects where you have to buy/bring your own stuff - just too time-consuming. Half the people in my section dropped because they did not have the time for this class.

Dr. K and this class in general are extremely demanding. The best favor you can do yourself is take micro alone, stidy your butt off,and attend everything!!! But I enjoyed Dr. K, maybe not her grading, but you learn a TON!! Eat, sleep and breath micro and you can do well. Good luck! And... go to learning communities!!!

I will be honest: professor K. is not easy to deal with, but she geniunely cares for her subject and students. There is a very warm heart behind her lab coat. She is a great cook too. I miss her treats already!

She is very helpful and very warm hearted. Sometimes hard to understand but she will further explain if needed. Great teacher, she knows her stuff but the class is difficult.

Be ready to teach yourself this course from the book as the lectures lag behind the syllabus layout of the semester. She is very picking when it comes to grading which wears on you as everything loses some points, however she is a fair grader. Be ready to buckle down with lots of work for little pts.

This class was very difficult, however it DOES get easier near the end. Expect to read and study more than you probably ever have. Dr. K definitely picks favorites, and picks on other students but near the end of the semester she becomes a lot nicer. Sometimes work load is outrageous for silly things worth five points.

Absolutely wonderful professor! She is light-hearted, easy-going, and has a good sense of humor. She is very strict with grading which is understandable because it's an upper level science course. This class is a MAJOR time commitment but it's a lot of fun. I'm so happy Dr. K was my professor!!!

Professor K is a great teacher but very diffucult. My favorite class but the worst grade I have received, B. She is very knowledgeable and knows her stuff and is willing to help you along the way.

I found Dr. K to be extremely difficult but knowledgeable. She is very approachable and willing to help you if you ask. She does give a study guide for her exams but you need to know every detail for her short answer essays which are truly not short answer. She is very intelligent and teaches down to a student's level. Just study hard!

Great professor. one of the better at MCC. She is hard, but this is a difficult course anyway. willing to work with you. Spends the exta time, even in her open lab. you have to ask questions if you don't understand, just ask she is good with that. I would recommend her, bu know that you will have to do the work.

I read a lot of the comments from other students and was amazed. You can pretty much tell the good ones from the bad. Dr.K is a great teacher the class is hard but she will help u as long as you ask her. If you work hard getting an A is easy. I'm sick of people blaming teachers when its just they are to lazy to work.

This class is difficult... mostly because Dr. K is not a great lecturer... all powerpoints. She sort of breezes of the content and then tests on it. But if you read and re-read the text you should be ok. She's very nice and approachable and her labs are very good. I'm getting an A so far... but I had no real interest in Micro to start... just a

It may look like I rated Dr. K low, but that was because the class wasn't easy. I think she's a fine teacher! She's sweet, but not as warm as some. Ask lots of questions! Go on a date with your textbook, frequently! I went to tutoring once a week, even if I felt I understood the material. Labs are tiring, but it's amazing how much you can learn!!
