BME111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Only teacher of required course BME111. Only points are from clicker,online quizzes, and tests. Save every quiz and share them with classmates, b/c the only thing to study for the tests are the quizzes. If you study many quizzes with friends the tests are EZ. Overall pretty easy course, but boring and pointless. DO NOT BUY THE "REQ" BOOK! NOT USED!

BME111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

First off BME-111 is required for engineering degree and Pauken is only one teaching it at ASU, so you cannot avoid her...and you shouldn't. Not the best teacher in the world but above average and the material is what you'd expect for a 100 lvl class. Overall much easier than the rest of your degree will be!

EXTREMELY Hard!!I do not like science and this professor does not make it any better. Her voice is a bit odd and throws you off... Her tests are designed to confuse you! (A lot of "All of the above","None of the above","A&B only") If you memorize and share all the quizz questions you will have a better chance of acing it, but don't get ur hopes up!

BME111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS! It is horrible. The tests are nearly impossible the way that she words them. I withdrew from the class after the first test because I thought I aced it but it turns out I got a D on it. This class is required for all engineers so I switched majors and pity all the other engineers who have to take this class.

Dr. Pauken knows pretty much everything about biology and how it relates to engineering. Definitely take the quizzes seriously and always trade quizzes via email to study. Test questions are EXTREMELY similar to quiz questions. Quizzes can make or break your grade!

Dr. Pauken knows her stuff, there's not a doubt in my mind. She lectures through powerpoints and gives good explanations of whatever's on the slide. Memorize quiz questions for tests but learn at the same time because she likes to make you second guess on the tests (i.e all the above or a and b). She's a pretty nice person, even learns your name.

BME101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed Prof. Paukens class. It is by no means easy material but I think she does a good job explaining it. She makes herself available if you need help. Make sure you get help early on if you think you're struggling. I would take a class with her again.

This may be the worst class I've ever had to take. She loves to play this game called "Let's pick a random person in class to answer a question. Then, if you don't know the answer she acts like you're from another planet. I hated going to this class everyday. Going isn't mandatory but you get attendance points for brining your clicker for participa

Ms Pauken's social interactions reinforce the concept that a hierarchy is established by social norms rather than ability.
