    Dr. Boothby is really nice and very clear. Lab is half of your grade and a LOT of work. Lecture exams are very detail-oriented but the dichotomous keys are very do-able and the essay parts are usually easier. Key to this class is just keeping up with your lab notebook & the material since there is a massive amount of it! ...Continue reading

    The lecture exams were easy, but you gotta study a lot and take good notes. They were a lot easier than lab exams though. Boothby is a very good lecturer and teaches you a lot of interesting stuffs. Goes over the materials really quick though so you have to reread your notes before going to the next class. Highly recommened professor overall. He puts his slides online so you can see visuals, but there's very few words so attendance is mandatory. The class is boring, especially when he turns the lights off, but he tells some funny stories once in a while. ...Continue reading

    Lecture is a total joke. Exam questions are directly from lecture slides and from assigned readings. The material covered in lecture is review from Biol 3 and also the Micro 101 lab (lab was consistently ahead of lecture). Nothing useful was learned. Wish I would have waited for Boothby or Rech. ...Continue reading

    Yes he's pretty good-looking. His fashion sense is, well, interesting at times. His bright red, tight pants I thought were a joke until he wore them a second time. Kind of a boring lecturer though, but he does get his point across. Exams are pretty straight forward, but you will have to study. His accent doesn't get in the way. He's really helpful if you ask him questions and he's very knowledgeable. His class is pretty easy because most of his exam questions are from the powerpoint lectures he gives. However, I hated how he always kept us five to ten minutes after class was over to lecture more. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Rech's microbiology course was very enjoyable. She knows the material well, presents it clearly, and pulls test questions from the lecture slides rather than the textbook (which is much more in-depth than the lecture). Tests are very reasonable, as is her grading. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Don't buy the book! She doesn't give reading assignments and expects the student to find the subject themselves (which is in 10-15 different places in the book). Things appeared on exams that she didn't lecture about. The obscure matching questions were horrible. Go to class and write down ALL! ...Continue reading

    completely useless teacher. exams were hard and graded as such. doesn't care about students or school only about herself and money. i hear she's also lazy and unattentive advisor for microbiology students. glad i'm done with her forever. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Skovran is fantastic. Dr. Skovran is really passionate about teaching microbiology. Very nice and approachable. She doesn't mind explaining the problem again until the students get it. Her office hours are extremely helpful for students to ask questions about lectures and homework problems. Exams are not hard, but long. Highly recommended. ...Continue reading

    Really good professor. She goes out of her way to teach you concepts that are relevant and current. She puts an enormous effort into her material and it shows. Not only that, she cares for all of her students deeply. Plus, she makes lectures fun. She is a gifted person and I would take any class she offered. ...Continue reading

    She's a passionate micro teacher. She shares the powerpoints before going to lecture. If you attend class, take really good notes, ask her questions during office hours and complete the study guides you will get an A. Not a lot of homework but really useful. Gives extra credit. Is super approachable and passionate about what she teaches. Her lectures are very clear and that is why you should come to class everyday. With that said, you don't really need the book she is the book itself. but you could get it. just pay attention to her lectures. it was her first time teaching so exams were a bit tricky. im sure she'll make it better. BIOFUEL FTW! ...Continue reading

    Nice professor. Didn't like her graders that much. Wish she expanded her office hours as every time I went, I wasn't able to get one on one assistance within the limited time she has. Lecture materials were clear but very picky on exams ...Continue reading
