She is a nice person but AWFUL teacher. I took over 6 pages of notes a day, leaving with wrist cramps from writing so much. My notes were broken and hard to read bc she WILL NOT slow down. The info is very detailed so go to class and write down as much as possible. (Notes are posted online, but WAY more than actually needed) Just don't take her.

Notes that are posted online are so dense you have no idea what to study. So much information and she doesn't know how to go through it in a way that helps you understand.

I like Krizek. She is very approachable and helpful. Although this is not an easy class and I did not make an A, I think someone with more time on their hands to devote to studying can do it. She posts notes online and it is certainly doable. STUDY. Don't buy the textbook. 4 of 100 point exams and highest 5 of 6 20pt homeworks determine grade. :)

Excellent teacher! Understands the material very well (and actually did some of the experiments used). Puts all notes online and they are very detailed and are sufficient to get you an A on exams. Uses diagrams with notes to facilitate learning. Adds extra non-graded material to help with learning. She deserves a much better reputation.

shes very boring, but she knows the material and she co teaches with connolly, but the material is a little more difficult on the test than the actual notes. passable but the 3rd test will be a little harder. i would recommend both krizek and connolly.

She is really boring. Krizek partners with Connelly to teach this class. Krizek reads straight from the power points and repeats info in the power points. Questions were easier. The final is the new material and questions from old exams. She gave quizzes out but said they did not count, no one knows what she did with them.

Just don't do it man. She usually teaches this class with Connolly, who is tolerable, but there is NO teaching of the material. Concepts are ambiguous at best, and tests are much more complicated than they need to be. Ugh.

Terrible! She is very unsure of herself and gets flusted when students ask questions. She is the WORST biology teacher I have had! She is way too hard and teaches her class at a graduate level. She focuses too much on the nic picky and not on the main concepts. Also the course desciption does not say plant genetics, but that is what you learn.

She is very boring and not interested in the students being able to understand the info clearly. Dr. Connoly is the better half. After Dr. Krizek took over the grades and began to drop off. the tests were unnecessarly too hard.

She taught for half the semester and made the class completely boring. The tests are ridiculous and she could care less about her students. The final is cumulative and is about 43% of your grade. Class average at the end of the semester was a 73.

Acts like she's qualified, but just is not qualified. She's boring. She's mean, and just a terrible professor

She is very repetitive, but at the same time unclear and shaky. She says the word "essentially" like 20 times each minute and she is just not that great.

Dr. Krizek seems nervous when giving lectures to a big group of students, but she is obviously very qualified in her field. She has the knowledge and can convey it if you ask for help. Take notes!
