"Would take again"

I'm a Biology major and I have to say that she is my favorite professor I have taken so far. Tests follow the learning objectives. Do those and you will make good grades on your tests. Homework on Connect is required, do it. Easy A. I loved this class.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Would take again" "Assignments galore"

I can't believe what people are saying Dr. Dardis on this site. If you study, you WILL EASILY pass her tests. She gives you a lot of information in her lectures and assigns online homework (you'll read the chapter to complete this). Skim the chapter and review her PowerPoints to EASILY get a B. Just don't skip class; she'll lower your grade.

"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She was very nice but had hard tests. I sent her an email and never got a reply. If you miss a day you get called out. Do not be late to class. Otherwise fairly straight forward. She disagreed with the book a lot though.

GBIO 107 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Don't even bother scrolling down to read more reviews. Stop here. DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER FOR ANY REASON WHAT SO EVER. She is HORRIBLE. She is the reason I did not get a 4.0 this semester. I did get a B, but I still do not recommend her to ANYONE. Doesn't respond to emails, takes forever to grade everything, she is just completely unorganized.

zoo 350 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took this lady's zoo online course. Mistake. She has not answered at least 5 emails I've sent. The complications I had, she provided no help for. She doesn't answer questions. She is the only reason I haven't made a 4.0 this semester. None of the books material is on the test. You are at the mercy of wherever she gets her info.

GBIO 107 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Seemed nice enough, but very unhelpful as far as test material. She always posted a "study guide," but it NEVER had and anything to do with the questions asked on the tests. You MUST read every single chapter page-to-page in order to get a good grade. Even then, it is not very likely because of the difficulty of her tests. Don't take her online. =[

MIC 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is absolutely ridiculous. Doesn't help students outside of class, doesn't answer emails concerning the class, and enjoys singling out people on a personal vendetta for her own enjoyment. Absolutely AVOID her if you can.

GBIO151 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was very sweetv and easy to talk to. however, her class was insane. No matter how i studied i always did bad. Its like she pulled her test questions out of no where. They had nothing to do with the textbook and nothing to do with her study guide. Do not take her online!

She's such a sweet lady and made medical micro super easy to understand. She's extremely clear and wants you to succeed more than anything. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!

MIC205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Deborah Dardis is an absolute disaster. She's a good teacher as far as explaining material well goes, but when it comes to other crucial things, like posting important things online, she's the worst. Very irresponsible. She gives a study guide for the test, but usually only the night before. Not recommended at all.

micro221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is an okay teacher, but my lab teacher said we are really behind in the material we are supposed to cover. She gets side tracked really easily and goes off on tangents. Her tests aren't too bad, as long as you study and read the textbook; class, on the other hand, is boring and hard to stay awake for an hour and 15.

Mic223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is interesting. I learn just when it comes to the tests I'm lost. You HAVE to make time to study. Powerpoints do not help. I've taught myself from the book. Tests are complicated. She's a good teacher when it comes to explaining, just not at making tests.

She was an okay professor. In order to pass this class you MUST read the book. She gives powerpoints but the majority of the information on the tests comes from the book so it would be in your best interest to read it. She was okay, I managed to get a B.

SE101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She treated us like we were in kindergarten. No one wants to take SE 101 anyway and she made it extra boring. Easy class as long as you do all of you assignments which are straight from the textbooks. Easy assignments, just a lot of busy work.

Tough material, good professor. 4 exams, 1 final, pop quizzes, online homework assignments, and 1 paper. Class attendance is necessary. You can opt out of the final. I made a B.

She is such a good teacher! Highly recommended! If you read the chapters, do her learning objective study guides for each test and go to class! easy A/B! She is very helpful and enjoy her class even if you hate biology

She is very nice. I was a little intimidated at first, but if you read the book, study your notes, and attend class, you should do fine. She is very helpful and willing to help during her office hours. I learned a lot in her class. I would suggest taking her.

She has to be one of the sweetest teachers I've had. Genuinely a wonderful person, and very knowledgeable on the subject. Tests are based off lectures and material in books (so make sure to read the book for tests!). She drops the lowest exam, and also the lowest quiz. Easy to get a B/A if you make reasonable efforts.
