CHEM 152L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Bowers is an excellent prof. I took her lab for intro chem. She's down to earth - explains things directly, answers questions directly, and is perfectly clear about assignments. She expects you to remember everything you do and learn in lab, but that does not make her hard, that makes her a good prof. Always read ahead and prepare for quizzes

O Chem Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is the BEST !!! Not sure why people gives her a bad review. Don't expect to skate thru her class for an A. Whatever comes out of Dr. Bowers mouth in lectures is fair game that she will quiz/test you on it. Be prepare to study at least 6+ hrs outside of class, do your reading, practice, practice, Chemical reaction and nomenclature =Easy A+.SiMPL

O Chem Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Becca loves teaching and it shows. She really cares about students and she has a good sense of humor. She also really wants students to master the subject so she gives hard tests in Ochem. If you want to have more fun in a class with her, take BIO132. She gets the class involved.If you want to make an A in her classes, come prepared and study hard

chem130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Definitly not the best teacher ive had. She is quite tough whn it comes to knowing reactions and information from memory. She spends enough time to only get the basic frame of information. Tests are hard, easy Lab class but lecture is torture.

Dr. Bowers is the best! She loves what she does and is always more than willing to help you. Also has a sense of humor which is a plus! Make sure to read your text book and lab manual before class for preparation and quizes. Tests were everything you learn in class, so go! I highly recommend her class, it's tough but you learn a lot!

CHEM101L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Bowers is great for lecture and lab. If possible take her for both, the material compliments each other nicely. Labs are usually quick and you can finish early. Just a warning, be sure to read the lab procedure PRIOR to each class after the first few labs, most of the quizzes include procedure questions from the previous and current lab.

Dr. Bowers is one of the best instructors I've ever had. I was terrified going into the course but she teaches the material with clarity and enthusiasm. Her office hours are fantastic, turnaround on grades are super quick, and all emails are promptly returned. If you're a nursing major, take this class BEFORE micro and physio, I wish I had.

Chem130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of my favorite teachers ever! Yes Ochem is a difficult class but she makes the course easy to learn. Book is helpful but she tends to refer to the slides from the exams. GO TO CLASS! You can get an A if you attend class and pay attention. Ask questions, and she will be happy to clear it up for you. I recommend her!

Dr.Bowers is probably the best ochem prof in Miramar, extremely detailed & organized,& she made sure you understand the subject. But this course is very tough. I studied everyday, read (& reread) the book & did ALL the exercises in the book, so far I have an A. 4 exams (w/ 5 EC qs), 1 paper, 1 presentation. Take her if you want to pass this course.

BIO131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very detailed and organized on the syllabus. This allows you to stay on top of the assignments and upcoming labs and tests. Be prepared to read and study for the exams! They have some matching and fill in the blank questions, but most of them consist of short answer questions.

I really enjoyed taking Chemistry with Dr. Bowers. She is extremely organized, and follows her word. I loved how she used current "in the news" Chemistry to explain some of the concepts. One of the best teachers I have had for Chemistry. She also went out of her way to meet with me, and I really appreciate that.
