This professor is indeed one of the challenging professors you will find at fullerton college on the first day, but she does teach the students. She will make you actually work for your grade, which in turn will make you a better person in the end. Dr. Nolan is a nice person and is always there to help students if needed.

Took her summer class. Hands down, one of the best professors I've ever had. Definitely not an easy class. Reading is a must along with proper language in your essays. She definitely knows what she's talking about and expects 100% from her students. Can be intimidating at first, but don't be afraid to ask questions. She's always glad to help.

Great professor. She puts effort into her lectures and is always happy to answer questions. If you read the chapters before class and come prepared she’s your best friend. Loved her so much I took her for the next level of bio.

Dr. N is a really great professor. You can tell how much she loves the subject by the way she teaches it back to you. She helps you just as much as you ask for it. Going to office hours were very helpful. Very difficult class, but also very passable. Do the work, read the book, pay attention in lecture, ask questions and you'll be fine!

The most condescending professor I have ever experienced. She takes simple concepts and makes them difficult. I would HIGHLY recommend you find another professor. Are you clear on the concept? I find it hard to believe that the dean of fullerton college knows how she acts and teaches in class. I would fire her immediately.

Awesome professor and super helpful! She's got a sense of humor but she is really serious about making sure you comprehend the material. All you have to do is try to understand what you read and what you don't get she'll explain in a way that makes you think, "Why the hell didn't I get that?" Love her!

Dr. N is seriously my favorite teacher at Fullerton College. If you plan on being a bio major this class is great! It will prepare you to think like a science major. Stay on top of the readings and think about what you say and you will be fine! (Skimming does not equal reading in this class!)

By far one of my favorite professors at Fullerton. Yes she is demanding and yes she is intimidating but this class is not impossible and you learn so much. If you read the chapters and her lecture notes online you will be fine! However, if you're looking for an easy class to fly through take someone else cause she will rip you to shreds

Very particular with words. very difficult teacher. Do not take if you want an A. In one term, only 2 B's, everyone else got lower. At some point, youd think the professor would realize it's their inability to teach, rather than the quality of student.

By far the most challenging class I have ever taken, but it was totally worth it! Study, study, study is the key! If you come to class prepared you will learn a lot! Intimidating at first but that's only to make sure you're serious about the class,wonderful person and teacher. If you put in the work there is nothing she won't do to help you.

Online class. Prof unresponsive to emails. Online quizzes had a few mistakes. Prof also teaches face-to-face class. We all met in one room for the final. Face-to-face class seemed to have a good relationship. For the online class. . .it seemed like the twilight zone. Online reviews run/guided by student Qs rather than prof led.

I took the online class and it was difficult. You have to take time to read the book and the lectures and the powerpoints. She's really helpful if you go to her office and ask questions. Intimidating, but beneath it all, she's nice and knows how to do her job. The exams are multiple choice w/ essays. Take her if you can teach yourself.

Dr. N is an amazing teacher. She might scare you at first but as long as you do your work and study you'll be fine. More than half of the class dropped but thats because this class takes commitment. She has a spunky personality and she is by far my favorite professor :) be prepared to learn! A LOT!

Extremely tough class and she is really intimidating. Studied harder than I've ever studied only to get a C on the exam--A on multiple choice and F on the essay. Even if I didn't drop, I probably would have only gotten a C at best. Nothing easy about this class-be prepared to learn 99% from the textbook since she doesn't lecture. Good luck

Dr.N is very intimidating. She will analyze and disect everything word that comes out of your mouth to make sure you mean what you say. She pushes everyone to do their best.This class will definitely kick your butt, but in the end, it is worth it. You NEED to keep up with the readings and not fall behind otherwise your seting urself up for failure.

Exams are difficult and include essay questions. Labs are challenging. Wiley Plus isn't quite right for this class. Nolan should finish writing her own text asap.

She is an adorable woman but she's got a big bite and she's pretty intimidating. In her class, everything you thought you knew about Bio is wrong! MUST keep up on reading. It's intense. She expects 150% from everyone. The class is so interesting, but it will kick your butt if you don't put the work in. "They don't call me the B-word for nothing!"

Nolan was a very intense teacher. She goes through her notes and grades her test very hard. You have to choose your words carefully otherwise you won't pass her class. She's your last resort teacher. I recommend printing out the powerpoints text only because she goes through them quick I got a B- in her class
