"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

More than 60 percent of her lecture is not coming in pcat or mcat or even dat because they are all about plants. So if take somebody else you would save your gpa at least. Her exams are hard an make your semester so miserable.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read"

Exams are hard. It is not easy to get A. Prepare to study a lot but do not expect to get A after that. If biology is a hard course for you this instructor may hurt your grade or gpa no matter how much you study. So it s better to take somebody else.

1406 PO8 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Let's get to the point: she's terrible. Don't bother answering q's in class bc she will laugh at you if you're wrong. She will tell you one day something isn't important and the next look at you weird for not knowing it at all. Doctorateknow it all who expects everyone else to know everything. She is super rude.

"Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

Very rude and disrespectful to students. Does not give correct information regarding tests. If you want to study your butt off and then not see any of the info on your test, this class is for you.

BIO 1407 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B
"Big time extra credit" "Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

as long as you study you will do fine. she gives all the answers to her tests in her lectures. Even then I never studied for her tests and only payed attention in class and I got a B. She is very nice and genuinely cares whether a student passes or fails.

"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

she tells us to ask questions, but when we ask she gives us a hard time and doesn't understand why we don't get it.

This instructor would not be easy for everybody so before you take her class make sure you really want to take her lecture because A is not guarantee. Her exams are hard for most of people in the class.

Dr.Sub is a nice and tender teacher and knows bio II and physiology pretty well. If u made B or less on bio I strongly recommend u to take somebody else for bio II if you still have time, because she isn't an easy instructor for everybody, so she may hurt your gpa. Exams are hard also she gives u some extra credits and online tests too.

Biology II is a hard course and she knows it very well.If you already know the biology or had similar courses before you're gonna be fine . In totall she's a hard teacher with such hard exams, also some extra credits and quizzes. If you're worry about your gpa, I strongly suggest you to take somebody else.

You're gonna be fine if you are biology major or had any biology materials before, otherwise she would be hard. She gives some extra credits and take home exams too. Tests are very hard and confusing for most of the students. You must study a lot but A is not... . Also using voice recorder helps you to make better grade.

BIOL 1407 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

The tests are very easy (others didn't find this true). If you've taken anatomy and phys then you'll find this class a BREEZE! The last month is spent on A&P. She goes on tangents a lot but that's because she's always really hyper. She will poke fun at you but she means it with love. All the quizzes and HW's are extra credit.

Bio II is already a difficult subject so if you're looking for an easy A, I wouldn't suggest taking her. But she's very helpful when you have problem with materials and she has a unique humor! She gives super hard multiple choice exams so study study study and know the material but there is no guarantee for A or even B.

I think she is a quality professor who knows her stuff. She really tries to make sure her students understand the material because her exams are extremely hard. Her class is not a good suggestion for everybody and may hurt your GPA and you have to retake it again with somebody else. You must be very good in bio if you want take her.

Very kind woman and passionate about biology. Her hard exams ruined my motivation. There is no guarantee to make A even you study hard.
