Subject: Not Bad  (Jan 16 2007, 10:57AM)

Class:Basic Biology (A)

 This is probably the only class I never minded going to. It was mostly all power point lectures, but she added information/stories to them and nothing was difficult. The tests were all multiple choice, but still difficult, so you couldn't get away without studying. She began giving pop quizzes, but soon turned them all to either take home, open note, or just points for attendance. She doesn't cancel class, and she always took forever to put the presentations on Blackboard, but overall I think she was great.

 Dr. O is a very smart lady but her class was not all that difficult. She teaches from powerpoints which she later posts on blackboard. You do have to read the book and be prepared for the pop quizzes, but they just made it easier for me going into exams since I had already looked over most things. Some work is expected, but there weren't any big suprises. This was really a good class and I learned a lot of stuff that was actually interesting. Basic Bio with Dr. O was a good gen ed. I really recommend taking her.

 Dr. O is an awesome prof. She is the sweetest lady and is always making sure that you are following her lectures. If you aren't she is open to suggestions, criticism, and is readily available for questions that you may have. The lab reports are cake and I happened to get an A on 2 out of the 3 she assigned. Her tests are very hard so I recommend going to lecture and studying the notes and power points (the book may also help clear any confusion). Also, she posts your grade on blackboard so you always know where you stand in the class.

 Okay so I just took a seminar with Dr. O but it was well conducted and I am not worried about virology in the fall with her. I expect it to be a challenging course, but at least I know that the prof will not be what keeps me from doing well in the course. Dr. O is very willing to answer questions during/after class and is a very nice lady. Unfortunately, she does expect college-level performances from her students...

 Shes one of the nicest people in the world. Attendance doesnt matter. Shes always willing to help no matter what the situation. And she really knows what shes talking about. The tests are fair too not too hard and not too easy.

 Well, she wasn't there for half of the semester, because she had a baby, but when she was there, she was really nice. She knows a lot about Bio, and she really gets into teaching. She's not easy, but she's not impossible. You do actually have to put forth an effort in the class and do some reading. There are 8 pop quizzes, but you get to drop the two lowest. She usually hinted to when they would be too. She's a pretty good professor, and she has a great British accent.

 Very knowledgable professor well educated in the subject of biology. Many quizzes, but if you actually slightly looked over the notes from the previous class you pass with flying colors. One 3-page 100 point paper that helps the grade if you are thorough. Exams crappy much material to study. Overall good professor, sweet woman, makes things interesting.

 I'm very impressed by this professor. She keeps the class challenging because she is very well knowledged about the subject. She studied extensively in Britain and her sheer intelligence comes through crystal clear. I know you'd expect that with her superior knowledge of the subject that the class is going to be really hard, but she helps you understand it so well and in no way makes you feel stupid. She's also very helpful one on one she answers email religiously, allows people to call her, and gives you feedback on quizzes, exams and papers. If you do your reading in preparation for each class you'll do fine, and if you don't understand anything for god's sake just ask her for some help.

 Dr.O is a super nice person and very smart. She knows what she is talking about but is the most G*d awful lecturer I know. All she does is read the power pionts. Her tests in both classes were mainly multiple choice but really anal. You can totally understand the material and still do poorly. Lab is not to bad and she is great at helping one on one. Try to avoid her but if you have to take her make sure you do well in Lab it will help.

 Alright..so the other people that have commented have not taken genetics. Sure she may be ok for human bio or some other gen-ed course, but for genetics, forget about it. Her tests are ridiculous, you have no clue what to study, and dont even get me started on the final. Worst bio class I've ever had here. Her lab reports are so hard and she never explains them right, and you do a lab on freakin fruit flies for what seems like months. Genetics could be an interesting subject, but coming out of that class I feel like i know nothing about it. I wouldn't recommend her...

 Dr. O is an extremely sweet lady, no doubt about it, but...her genetics class was extremely difficult...i mean TOUGH. Tests were quite hard but there is a decent number of points elsewhere in the class to bring it up. So like I said, very nice, but you gotta work VERY hard in this class to survive

 Ok I would like to say that she is a very nice lady. She grades very hard and her tests are impossible. She expects you to pretty much memorize the entire book for her exams. There are no quizzes and I think there was one extra credit assignment which gave you a total of 5 points. So it doesn't help much at all. If you do badly on one exam expect to do bad in the course. You can go to her for help which I did multiple times but even if you do exactly what she tells you to you still get like 10 or 15 points off your labs because you didn't do them right. There is no tutoring for this class so I would recommend bothering her as much as possible to get the grade that you want. I have to retake this class and there is a new teacher who is teaching it now so I hope to get her because Dr. O is extremely tough and I could barely understand her. I like genetics very much but she just doesn't teach it well.

 She talks like the dry eye guy! Her class is boring. You have to read about 15 pages EVERY nite cuz she gives 8 POP QUIZES! She does give extra credit... That is the only good thing about her.
