She doesn't seem like a hard teacher but she never does what she says she will. The quizzes are pretty rough but you do get a notecard for her exams and final. Not my favorite but not the worst

Dr. Ramonell's class can be difficult, but if you ask her questions and go to office hours it will help a great deal. She is incredibly kind and helpful and actually cares about her students. Definitely take this class.

This class is very difficult, especially later on. You need to know literally everything for the tests. You get a note card, but many of the questions are insanely obscure and not stressed in lecture or not discussed at all. Many of her hints about the tests turn out to be false. Gives extra credit for attendance, so show up to every class.

This class has gotten MUCH harder than in the past. This is the first class in college that I've gotten a "B" in because I have no idea where she pulls her test questions from. Even bringing a notecard to the tests didn't help me make A's because I didn't know what to write on it. I struggled in this class more than I did in organic chemistry.

Go to every class. She will tell you exactly what is on her exams if you listen closely. She is also always available if you have any questions about the material. Her explanations are detailed but are presented in a manner that makes the material easily to comprehend. If you take cell bio take it from her.

Great Teacher. Definetly can get an A if you know how to study for her. Don't bother buying book. Tests come straight from lecture and she does tegrity so if you study that an A is pretty easy

Difficult tests but you can use a note card on them so they're not too bad. Dr. Ramonell puts all of her lectures on tegrity and doesn't require class attendance. Overall, a pretty good class. The only negative thing is that she rounds your final grade down (ex: 89.9 will be a B+ not an A-).

Dr. Ramonell is a really good teacher. The notes aren't super clear, but, if you go to class, she explains everything very well. She makes it very clear what is to be expected on her exams, and she is very willing to work with you if you have issues. I really recommend her for cell biology.

Tried to take this class with Churchill and he sucked. Ramonell is so much better! She is actually interested in what she teaches and tries to make it doable. She allows you to have a notecard for the test which helps. The only thing that made me mad was I had an 89.8 and she gave me a B+ instead of what most teachers would do, and give you an A-.

Took cell biology with her. No clicker questions and attendance wasnt mandatory but you should GO EVERY TIME. Its a hard class, and you have to study a ton. She doesnt teach very well though. Have fun teaching yourself :(

I was hesitant about taking Dr. Ramonell, but she was a great professor. There are clicker quizzes every week. The tests are difficult, but she lets you bring a 3x5 notecard with notes on it which helped me alot. Gives bonus points randomly throughout the semester. Important to keep up with the material and not wait til the last minute to study!

I was hesitant about taking Cell with Dr. Ramonell because of her ratings on here, but she was a great professor. There are clicker quizzes every week. The tests are difficult, but she lets you bring a 3x5 notecard with notes and such on it which helped me alot. Gives bonus points randomly throughout the semester. Overall, a great class

yes, this is a hard class, but it is do-able! doing well in this class will require a lot of outside work...go to class to take the quizzes and get the occasional bonus point, but study study study and read the book on your own! she is willing to help as long as you show her that you're really trying.

Dr. Ramonell is a very helpful and kind teacher. The tests are hard, yes, but this isn't freshman bio, it's a 300-level class. If you read the read and expand the notes from your reading of the text and do the learning objectives throughly, you'll have more than enough to do well on the tests and the class.

This class is very challenging. Her tests are very hard, and she covers material really fast. Read the each chapter at least once maybe even twice.

Her notes dont prepare you for the test. You have to know all the stuff that is going to be in the book, which her tests are tricky and difficult.

This Class isn't easy but if you do your work, read the book and come to class you can do well in Dr. Ramonell's class. She goes through lectures pretty quickly so reading the book is a must, but she gives plenty of extra credit. Tests are pretty damn tough though.
