BIO 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is extremely hard to understand. In every class I take with her she has a way of making fun subjects not so fun. After every class (esp BIO 300) that I took with her I regretted it. She would make things so difficult and tedious that I remember doing work but don't remember what I did or what I was suppose to learn. Dreadful experiences.

BIO 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

Super confusing, a lot of trouble with understanding what she is talking about. Not understanding of extracurricular activities, she expects you to put all effort into that one class. I don't recommend taking her.

BIO317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Shhe is HORRIBLE!!! By far the WORST professor that I have ever had at Winthrop. Genetics could be so interesting and fun but she ruins it. I feel like Winthrop is really letting its students down by not offering another professor for this course. I feel like I missed out because I had to take this course at Winthrop. Take Genetics somwhere else!

BIOL206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very nice lady, accent isn't too hard to understand, but Botany just isn't an interesting class. If you study like you should, it's an easy A. But you just gotta stick with it the whole year. Also really enjoys it when you visit her and ask her questions in her office.

BIOL203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Stoeva seems a little intimidating at first, but she is really nice once you get to know her! She can be hard to understand and the material can be difficult, but if you ask her questions she is always willing to help.

bio300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Stoeva is a nice lady, but I feel like she may have favorites in my class. She wasn't the best at teaching this course. It seemed like she did not want to give anyone an A. Her handwriting is hard to read, which isn't good when she's grading papers. I wouldn't recommend her for bio 300, but I don't know about the other classes she teaches.

BIOL205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is extremely nice and very caring for her students. She doesnt talk too well, but she tries until you completely understand. she teaches perfectly with many examples. She was always available for help anytime i needed it; the class is easy if you keep up with the reading. take this class!

BIOL317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible professor. You'll study your butt off and not get the grades you want. She is very picky on her tests. Basically memorize the book. She doesn't take attendance so I would recommend not coming to class unless there is a quiz or test. It is pointless. She copies and pastes the book on powerpoint slides.

BIOL205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a really sweet lady. She is fairly hard. Her notes come straight from the book but they don't make any sense and she doesn't speak English very well so when she explains stuff you can't understand her. I would recommend reading the book to study for the tests. Her tests are tricky so study hard!

BIO 300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a great prof. Just do your work and do what she tells you to do or not do. She definately makes you work for your grades--so if you're lazy, she's not the right prof for you.
