BIO 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

MS. Kalison is a funny professor and used lots of stories to illustrate her points. She is somewhat disorganized and there is not much organization in your notes. she uses no power points at at all. When you get to her tests she words her questions in a way they are hard to understand. Definitely requires full attendance and your attention,not easy

Ms. Kalison's Biology class is the most helpful science class. The test questions covers lecture material only so attendance is a must! Ms. Kalison does not use powerpoints, and her stories are hiliarious. I recommend her to anyone pursuing a medical degree of any kind.

Ms. Kalison is an extremely knowledgeable professor with a passion for biology. She does not utilize powerpoints, which I prefer. I typed all her notes in my laptop. The test questions covered material given in lecture so strict attendance is recommended. Her stories are just hilarious and on point. I enjoyed her class immensely.

Mrs.Kalison is very passionate about science and especially marine biology. She goes over everything very well but her class can be difficult. It requires a lot of studying and you must pay attention in class. If you're good at absorbing a lot of information very quickly, take this class. Fun teacher, fun lab, fun subject.

she is a very goofy elderly lady, who really knows her stuff she teaches you more by talking then off of the actually worksheets. her enthusiasm carries over to the class. if you don't like the ocean then don't take the class, if you don't like being reminded how destructive humans are ..don't take the class. other then that she is a teacher

I'm a blco 2 nursing studet, everything Ms. Kalison has taught has been something I've had to learn and test for in Block 1 or 2. If anyone takes her class they are very lucky. It's not an easy class, but nursing school is hard. If you work hard in Ms. Kalisons class, you will be much more prepaird for nursing school. I'm glad I took her class.

Mrs Kalison was a wonderful teacher! She is definitely passionate about this topic and it shows in her lectures. There are a lot of handouts and a lot of information to study but you'll do good on her quizes and exams if you study. Don't take this class if you don't like to study or not good at memorization. All in all, pretty easy class!

I loved this class!! It is alot of work but if you are interested in the subject it is a very rewarding course. Mrs Kalison is very knowledgeable and provides concise content notes so there is not a ton of note-taking. Her class moves a a very relaxed pace and she is great with helping you succeed.

Favorite class this semester!! :) Mrs. Kalison is very fair, and explains things thoroughly. She makes herself available if you ever have issues. Has typed and written notes on the board. Notes easy to follow, and exams are only on these notes. Guys this class is not hard. The grade you receive DIRECTLY depends on how much YOU study.

She was a fair teacher. Anatomy and Physiology is a tough course and you have to study no matter who the teacher is. Her tests were challenging in the sense you can't just learn the terms you have to know how that "term" effects the body. Overall though I would say it was an easy class and would recommend her to anybody.

you can understand her lecture but exam is not related to lecture. she won;t give extra time to explain what was discussed because her lectures are brief and comprehensible ONLY that is not appearing in her test.

BIO202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I have had while in college. She assigns quizes each week which are tests in themselves and has exams every three weeks which are impossible to get a good grade on despite the amount of time you spend studying. She also isn't afraid to yell at you in front of the entire class if you dare to come in late.

This is one of the most uncomprehensable classes I have ever taken. I have worked in and around the medical field for over 7 years and this woman is the most confusing instructor ever!! Her quizzes are her own creation, literally. I'm not sure she can even remember what she discusses in class. I would suggest to use any other instructor!!

She is a nice lady but she is extremely difficult to follow and her test are not even close to what she goes through in lectures.I recorded her lectures and studied every night and i still had to withdraw. My GPA is 3.7 i failed 2 of her test and gotten c's on the other she still told me I would fail. Try and avoid her at all cost.

Come to every class, record the class if you can, pay attention in lecture/lab. I found Professor Kalison to be extremely helpful and honest in her opinions. She maybe a little more difficult but as long as you study, take notes and an interest in the subject then you should do well. This class is a foundation to others in the medical field.

If you read this run quickly from even thinking of taking her class. Over half of the kids withdrew, stop going, or flunked her class.

Her tests are extremely hard, I study for hours and think I am prepared and the test has very tricky questions about things she barely skimmed over. No study guides are given out to prepare for them. I was originally signed up for another teacher but that teacher decided to bail before the semester started. Avoid her at all costs.
