"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She's incredibly sweet and funny, but don't let that distract you. She is incredibly confusing and hard. The class gets easier along the way because she will review in more detail each test. People will drop the class because it starts off really hard but stick with it and visit her office. She drops the lowest grade and gives up to 35 bonus pt

"Tests are tough"

I loved her as a person before I took her class. She is funny and sweet but inside the classroom she is like a totally different person. She thinks every student cheats. If you take her please please please study from TEXTBOOK cause every single test is from book..

101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely hard class. She doesn't explain anything clearly. I had to drop the class after the second test, because my highest grade out of two tests that I studied daily for was a 55%. She doesn't curve nor drop the lowest test. You are going to mess up your GPA if you take her!!

"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "Gives good feedback"

Biology for me was hard and even though Dr. Hinton's personality will have you laughing and confused at the same time, I might take her again for Anatomy and Physiology. If you cannot handle a teacher getting off track and always laughing then do not the her. She's a happy spirit that really knows her Biology! She's awesome!

Bio 225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

This is a difficult to course to begin with. Dr. Hinton jumps around a lot and basically reads you the power points word for word. Study guides are a little helpful, but there is no telling what she will put on an exam. It helps that they are multiple choice. Do good in lab and it will help your grade

BIO 225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: D+

Super nice lady, but super hard class. If you can learn by reading from the chapters, then you should totally take her but wouldn't recommend her if you can't.

She is a sweet lady though very spacey. She will go off on tangents about herself or her family and the stories are humorous but is not class material. Reading the book to study is a must. Her class notes are simply reading her ppts and not much of that material is tested. She does give lots of extra credit in class so attendance is a must also.

BIOL225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Not a bad class, professor is very nice and cares about her students. She literally just reads her slides word for word in class however, and that makes studying a little difficult. I found the best way to study was to read the book (a definite must), while reading her PowerPoint slides. Going to class is necessary because she gives extra credit.

She is a very sweet lady. She gives out plenty of bonus points in class as well as on tests. If you pay attention and study for this class, there's no reason you can't make a good grade. She does take attendance but if you missed class, you won't fall behind--just read the book.

I don't know how she can even call herself a teacher she doesn't teach. She reads off of power points the entire class time and none of what she reviews is on the test.She is awful!Who cares if she's nice she is there to teach!

Such a sweet lady, not the best professor. Test questions come from different places, a lot off the internet. Teaches the subject in a broad manner and tests in a VERY precise manner. Don't expect an A just by reading the chapters and powerpoints. Get ready to teach yourself.

The worst biology class I have ever taken. I go to class and sit there just to be confused. I used to love science but now I feel like she is just shoving slides into my brain. tests are terribly worded! Do not take her!

I had heard from a friend that she was awesome and her class was super easy. I am a straight A student and I had a hard time keeping a B average in her class. She goes off topic A LOT and she expects you to always know more than you really do. Her tests are way more into depth than she teaches!

BIOL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very nice professor and incredibly informed on her subject. Lectures consist of mostly Powerpoints (that are also available online) and other small facts. Literally everything that is on the exams can be found in the textbook. She also gives huge amounts of extra credit, such as quizzes and free questions on tests.
