BEST PROFESSOR AT BU. She can seem very intimidating, but she is actually very nice and loves her job. I would take her and her class over again. Her exams are difficult and "make you think" but if you pay attention/ attend class, you should do fine. Every professor should be like her!

Best teacher at BenU. She can seem intimidating, but she's really nice if you get to know her. Her class really keeps you interested She shares funny stories to help you learn. 3 Exams, 10 quizzes:2 get dropped. Lab required but is easy and interesting too. Need to get an iclicker to answer ?s for attendance. Straight foreward tests/quizzes. TAKE!!

Dr. Tischler appears to be mean but that's just her personality and she doesn't mean it. She's a good teacher and her tests aren't too difficult. The tests require some application but just know your notes like the back of your hand and you will ace every test. She expects that you understand what you do in lab. Used the text once, it was pointless

If you want to challenge yourself then take her class but this is not an easy A. Reading before class and taking notes during class really helps. There isn't much homework in this class and attendance is not mandatory so tests and quizzes make up a big portion of the grade. You have to work extremely hard if you want an A.

I loved her class. I wish I could take her for every biology class at benedictine. She makes a lot of funny comments in class. She explains the material better than any bio teacher I have ever had. But you still need to read the book to understand things better. She had a tough semester yet she was trying to be very nice to us. I love her!

She is sarcastic at times, but she is a good teacher. Her lectures are interesting, and the information is clear. If you have any questions she is helpful, but you can also use the book as a reference (her lectures are straight from the book). You will have to study a lot if you want a good grade in this class.

although she has her moments where she can be mean and sarcastic, she definitely knows her stuff. study every detail of the bird book, especially the charts and any other fine print. overall, the way she taught the material was very helpful, you just have to put a lot more effort on your own part in order to get the grade you want.

She is a good teacher but can be very rude at times. She knows her roles as a teacher but can sometimes act like her students are nothing. However, she is nice and helpful one on one. You do have to work hard in this class. It is not an easy "A" type class. I recommend taking her.

She can be mean, and intimidating, but comparing the teachers at BU, I would say she is the best BIO 198 teacher, DEFINITELY recommend her!Be ready to read the BIO book cover to cover, without that it will be hard to pass

HORRIBLE. Teacher is sarcastic, mean, and not willing to help students. Teacher gave me an early warning notice 2 weeks into class. I am an A student. She told me I should 'reconsider if college is for me" AVOID this one.

She isn't rude guys. She is a lil sarcastic. just ignore it. she is really nice tho, especially in person. she is hard but fair better than the other profesor. It possible to get an A you just have to work for it. but she is a great professor!

My bro took her before and told me not to worry so much about this class and instead focus on my other science classes. He said that we wouldn't need our books. Considering that all of her slides were pictures, I'd say that she has changed. I ended up with a B instead of an A because of this. (i studied without a book at first)
