Biol 1111 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+
"Respected by students" "Would take again" "Hilarious"

She is very passionate about teaching. Love her lectures helped me to remember material better. She give you all the information for the test. All you have to do is read over lectures and do the learning curves and you will pass the test! Would definitely take her again. She also gives out extra credit.

PROFESSOR MCFARLENE WAS HORRIBLE... DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS. VERY UNORGANIZED AND SHE WAITS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO POST TEST OR WORK IF SHE CAN REMEMBER TO POST IT...

BIOL 2250 n Lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Mrs. McFarlane has ways of teaching that help you relate it to real life. Therefore, you'll remember it easily. She does have funky ways such as looking at you with an evil eye if you walk in late, or bust you out if you're not paying attention. Turn off your phone prior to entering her class. She doesn't return emails so don't waste your time.

BIOL 2250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Ms. McFarlane is super funny. She always relates topics to everyday situations, which helps you remember the harder topics. She gets extremely agitated if you come in late...SO BE ON TIME! Her tests are average..she does try to trick you on T/F questions. You do not need the book, she tests from her notes and she posts lectures online.

Biol 2250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Ms. McFarlane never responds to emails, takes 2 weeks to grade tests and she'll look at you like you are crazy if you ask her a question. However, her lecture is awesome, she always gives a few easy extra credit points on tests and she is hilarious. Always show up, don't be late, don't expect her to hold your hand, study, she's really cool.

Micro2250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I learned alot and still ended up with a low grade. I am a 3.5 gpa student and have never had such a hard class. Do not take alot of classes if you are taking her. You will be expected to UNDERSTAND everything, not just remember. She doesnt return any emails and will scowl at you if you are late. Does not curve anything and does not help.

She seems very hard Professor and she is, but at the end of the semester you will learn lot from that class. And trust me if you work hard and study hard, You will get A. I think I did not put my all my hard work in that class, and I got B. She is a good Professor.

Biol1151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very hard prof. However, she is very dedicated to helping her students learn. Do not recommend taking this class unless you willing to put in the time required to understand the material. Also, make sure your on time and cut off your cell phone unless you want the look of death.

I LOVE Professor McFarlane! She's funny, comes up with awesome stories to help you remember complicated topics! She can be "hard" but if you come to class, listen to what she says, and study, its really a breeze. She doesn't put up with any BS,so before you sign up, decide if you are in it to learn or play around. If its the latter, find a new prof

Bio1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

she's a cool teacher but her style f teaching is not the best. Wasnt very good with replying back to e-mails or phone calls. Questionable when it comes to her grading methods. I recieves an 89 out a 100 question test and each question counted 2 points a piece. When confronted with a question about an answer that was marked wrong.... no valid answer

BIOL1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took this class for the Sprng Semester and all I have to say is that she is good but her tests are VERY hard and tricky. I studied for all of my tests and I didn't do good on them. On the first test, she only had five or six people pass her first test everyone else failed...don't take her unless you dedicate you life to the book and to the class

bio1152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a good teacher but you must STUDY. She does make errors in grading and takes forever to grade things. I made a B but you must work for the grade. The tests are straight from her notes she gives you. I never looked at the book once it will confuse you because she is limiting what she wants you to know. If you study you will do fine

BIOL1152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I don't think Anatomy and Physiology is her field cos she is very horrible in teaching it. Although I made a B, I had to go to other professors for help. She don't return or explain her tests. People complained about getting wrong grades on the tests. If you must take her, be prepared to find other resources.

She is a good prof. Doesn't go over tests in class, but you are welcome to go to her office hours. Her tests are not hard IF YOU STUDY the material. Use her outlines AND read the text, don't just expect to learn by osmosis and you'll do fine.

Bio1152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a horrible teacher! Please don't take her if you really want to pass. Her tests are hard and she don't return or explain them. She reads off the ppt and gets an attitude with people who asks questions. Don't bother to send emails cos it will never be replied. I felt like her tests was set up purposely for you to fail it. Don't take her!

She was an excellent professor, who knew her stuff. She was willing to help you when you asked, even when she was frustrated. Her test are medium-hard, but everything on her test, she goes over during the review session.

She's ok. She can get an attitude in the lab, so be prepared for that. Oh and she has favorites .. Her tests are hard, it's almost as if she's really trying to trick you into answering wrong. Seriously!

She is funny as can be, makes class enjoyable and and fun BUT her test are completely something else. They dont really come from her notes, they're random and I didn't do as well as I would have liked to and I studied for them.
