"There for you" "Inspirational" "Respected by students"

This professor is by FAR the best I've had at BC my whole 2years of college!!!! She listens when you have a problem with the coursework and is there to help. I had her for lecture and lab and her lectures are interesting because she relates it to real world events. Her labs are super fun and she explains every single lab before class.

"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "There for you"

I LOVE Dr. Ayala. Amazing professor, made microbiology interesting. I took her for lab and lecture. Lab was not a joke, definitely had to study and work for it and attendance is required. Lecture exams were straight forward, either you studied and knew the info or you didn't. Great teaching style, she is so caring. I would recommend her to anyone!!

"Tests are tough" "Respected by students" "Tough Grader"

Her syllabus and exams don't sound like how she is in lecture. Her lectures are not bad to listen to. Her exams are an eye-opener; make sure you study those chapters ASAP. Pay attention on what she emphasizes on ppts. Do the assessments and extra credit quizzes online, they'll help. There's one group project at the end.

"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Gives good feedback"

Attendance is important. Safety is important. Dr. Ayala is very proficient in this field and I grew to admire and respect her deeply. I will remember her in my future endeavors. She is very understanding but she's serious about microbiology she's the best!

Dr. Ayala Is one of the most knowledgeable people I know. She knows her students. When I didn't do as well on her exams. she personally asked me if everything is ok. I've taken her for several classes. Micro, Bio and Genetics. Her class is not easy, but you will learn. you have to read the book. Read and Re-Read. I highly recommend her.

MCB2010L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

She is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She makes everything clear, easy to understand and is very helpful.This class is a lot of work. You have pre-labs, post-lab quizzes, written exams and practicals, but this is standard for most of the micro labs. There is a 30 point extra credit opportunity. If you do all the work, you can get an A.

MCB 2010L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I absolutely loved this teacher! Very kind and helpful. She answers any questions you have. This class can be a lot of work, but it also gives you lots of opportunities to bring your grade up through homework, tests, lab skills, unknown, extra credit, etc. If you pay attention in class and study well an A is possible. My favorite teacher at BC!

Getting an A in this class is possible. She's a great professor and really understands the material. She will take time to talk to you if you need help or have any questions. Read the chapters, take notes during lecture, and do the online assignments and extra credit. The tests are challenging but she gives you the tools you need to get your A.

The tests are not easy. If you read the book you should pass the class. You don't need a tutor to pass with a C. You just need to read the book. If you get a tutor maybe you can get an A or B. Test questions are very specific. Read the book.

Loved her lab! I was worried going into micro but she makes lab so fun and interesting, gives a lot of quizzes online but it's only to help your grade. She loves to see her students do well if she sees you're putting the effort! Loved her and enjoyed going to lab! Got an A, all you have to do is study and don't slack off.

Shes a really nice teacher who likes to teach quick and end class. Tests are a bit hard, but you have to read some things that she doesnt explain in class.

Dr. Ayala is awesome. For the ones giving her bad reviews--you clearly aren't trying. I am the worst at lab but will be receiving an A or B due due to all the help she has provided. she cares if you care.

She knows her stuff, not easy teacher by any means. Gives a group project doesn't want to hear problems.Power points good.Her tests a whole other world! Unless you have 2hrs a day to spend do not take her class. Accent a little hard to understand. Only gives so much extra credit.

This class is hard. You must read the chapters, and understand what you are reading not just memorize or you will not pass the class. There are 5 exams 5 assignments,5 extra credits, and a case study. I got a B :) she is a very nice lady, but she won't give any Extra credit beyond the 5 points in total for the whole semester.

This prof. is extremely hard and her test is extremely detail. If u are willing to spend 24/7 in the textbook and still fail go ahead and take her class but if u are willing to spend 24/7 in the textbook and pass, I advice u to take another prof. This lady is so hard, once again her test is so hard I mean really hard. Please DO NOT TAKE HER.

Dr.Ayala is an amazing professor. She is dedicated to helping her students. Her class is easy if you study and read the notes she gives you. She also gives pre-labs which helps to make you understand the material before attending class. She gives extra credit and she makes microbiology understandable.
