BIO152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a great professor. Like any other professor, she expects a lot from students. She teaches only one class and is always avaliable. He exams are pretty simple; multiple choice and she gives a lot of extra credit. In this class, she focused more on the forensic parts of bio. If you listen and do the work, the class is easy and fun.

BIO306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a horrible teacher. Doesn't give one crap about the students. Her test are impossible to study for because they are hard and nothing related to what she teaches in class. Average grades on tests for the class are failing. Do not take her unless you have absolutely no choice. Your GPA will drop.

Bio152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Not a good professor. Doesn't really care about the students or her class. Consistently unclear in her lectures and no notes to go from for clarity. Takes all her quizzes, notes, handouts directly from other sources- she doesn't do ANYTHING! Her tests and quizzes are tricky and your grade ends up dropping because of 1 or 2 wrong answers.

bio152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I would NOT recommend this teacher. she really doesn't teach, and when she tries to describe things, often messes up and contradicts her self in the same sentence... really hard to follow. also, when students ask questions, she usually doesn't answer them or gives a roundabout answer. This is her only class and doesn't seem to care about it.

BIO152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Wouldn't recommend this professor. Class was pretty easy but she focuses too much on stuff we know and not enough on new material. Only teaches one class but doesn't put any effort into it. Uses pictures and lecture but no powerpoint, lectures tend to go too fast and are contradictory. Tests are 20 m/c questions and often she words them tricky.

Upper level bio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

When I first had Sartori, I thought Vertibrate Physiology was the toughest class in the world. But if you see her for help and know how to write an essay for her exams, you will do well. She is always more than happy to answer serious questions and is very knowlegdable about the subjects she teaches. I personally learned a lot from her and because of the types of exams she gives and how her lectures are set up, the classes. Definitely do not expect to artifically learn the subjects she teaches.

Genetics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her exams are fair, lots of multiple choice. The lab exams are a little insulting. The exams are also short, which can either be good or bad, she mis-teaches a lot of material though, so you need to use the book a lot.
