"Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

Micro is a tough class but Professor Padma is great! She explains things clearly and has office hours for extra help. Do not miss class because she is strict about attendance. Be prepared to study on a regular basis. I highly recommend to do the extra credit. An A is achievable if you put time & effort into this course

She just reads her power points in class, and expects you to know everything from chemistry, A&P ,and will not go over, but will expect you to know it for the tests. For the tests know everything not just the review sheets, as that's not the only information on her tests. A good grade is obtainable, but you must teach yourself and put in 120%

Extremely difficult course. You need the text book to refer to.She doesnt teach;all she does is read her powerpoints outloud and the information is scattered. You need to sort through it and basically teach yourself. Tests are crazy!She tells you stuff will be on the tests and then theyre not. No clear directions.Lab is slightly easier.Study hard

Her bark is a lot bigger then her bite! I only had her for lab and I was scared, but as long as ur in lab (don't be late, better off not coming) and u do her study guide. You'll get an A!! I was surprised when I took the first test on how easy it was. Some of the pictures were confusing so study the. Well!!

Microbiology is a difficult course, but this professor makes a good grade obtainable. If you record the lectures, it is a big help, she goes everything with much clarity. The tests are difficult but 2 extra credit questions on each, both worth 5 points! You don't need to buy the textbook, lab is recommended though!

microbiology is hard but start studying from the first day. Make a note in her handout during lecture because it is difficult to understand. Listen attentively in class because she gives hints and ask if you dont understand. You will get an A if you follow my advice and good luck.

Anyone who rated this lady a bad professor apparently never should have made it to microbiology. You're a college student. Do the studying and you'll do fine. And just for the record, consider yourself fortunate when you have a teacher who gives tests reviews-IT'S NOT MANDATORY!

Prof. Seshardi is clear in her instruction but she has alot of material to cover and at times has to move very quickly thru it. Over all she is a nice person a good teacher and gives you every opportunity to get an A on her tests. Her bonus is helpful and so was the curve. Good professor.
