I really enjoyed Dr. Gilbride's class through the Chang school. She is very approachable and helpful with questions. Most of the material is review from grade 12. Big on definitions and processes so if you pay attention to her notes and the process images, you shouldn't have a problem. Midterm was fair, the lab was easy, final was harder though.

Generally pretty easy to understand but went through material really quickly. Made a lot of analogies which were pretty helpful. Notes posted online. Don't need textbook.

Good prof, uses great examples to help understand material. Was very monotone and quite boring to listen to. Exams were also quite hard and needed a lot of studying.

I didn't find her to be as bad of a prof as many students claim she is. She's great at explaining things, and her notes are straight out of the textbook. Study hard for her midterms though, many students fail her short-answer section.

She's an ok professor. A little sarcastic sometimes. I took a first year class with her and didn't find her as hard as everyone here said she is.

Talks super fast, seemed confused while explaining Z scheme. Just read textbook at home, its the safest bet! No point in lectures when the stuff is going to be from textbook!

She gets a kick out of making things hard for her students. Had a horrible experience with her and had to appeal my final mark. She changed her marking scheme after the course ended and I called her out on it because I had the original course outline she had posted. Received the mark I deserved but writing an appeal took away my Christmas break.

Very good professor, extremely helpful, exam will be easy as long as you study the book. Attendance is not mandatory.

She knows her stuff, but is REALLY hard. You gotta work really hard in microbiology for an A. Midterm/final were relatively straight forward with not many tricks. HOWEVER, she does expect you to know very suttle details about specific topics that you WOULDN'T think to study! Overall, knowledgeable but could improve in overall easiness.

Prof Gilbride KNOWS her stuff...yes, she is TOUGHh, and I mean REALLY TOUGH, BUT (& this ia a BIG BUT), if you work hard, you can get an A grade. The issue is this is a 1st yr course and students are NOT used to studying...WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD! If you study, its great, if not, ANY material is difficult!

Dr. Gilbride is not a bad professor, I think she goes into good detail about what she teaches. However, her exams are beyond what you learn in class. I don't Recommend NOT taking her class because they usually ahve 3 prof, the othet two are extraordinary.

Is a very nice person but a horrible teacher. She over simplifies and rushes through the material in class but then blindsides you with questions out of left field on tests. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS DO THE COURSE IN THE SUMMER TERM, this was a suggestion from one of the Biology faculty members who agreed with my description of her methods.
