Professor Reviews in BIOL 106


  • Class rating 3/5
    Gets off topic in lecture quite a bit. Really, we don't need to know about her kids' puberty. I recommend just reading the book and avoiding lecture. As she always says, Cambell (the text author) shows this really well. The tests are covered in misspellings and confusing questions. Certainly not recommended. ...Continue reading

    Useless professor. Will randomly refuse to return emails. Lectures are unorganized, borderline useless. She also likes to say the word 'again' at least 100 times an hour. Her personal tangents are enough to make students just get up and leave class. Get a different prof. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    She is soo funny and adorable! She goes slow enough so we can copy what's on the slides. She gives examples but they aren't so relevant for the tests. Her tests are hard for what she teaches in class. It is basically required to read the textbook if you want to do well in this class and the textbook is huge. ...Continue reading

    Very concerned with concepts, lectures can be good but generally don't apply to the tests, study guides are hard to follow, but overall if you put in the hours and study the book you will do fine. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    She seems really excited about teaching biology and at times makes it interesting. Quirky sense of humor If I were to clone myself then there would be more professors, identical to myself, who would make horrible multiple choice tests as well. ...Continue reading

    Horrible teacher. Everytime I see her, I think of Yoda from Star Wars. Her test are so hard, no matter how much you study, you will do bad. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    I dont like anything about this teacher other than her bad jokes. Her tests are hard! If you miss class and ask her for help she will refuse to help you because she find that people who don't attend lectures are failures and will not succeed in the class. She's been rude/mean and made students cry! If you fail the first exam, you should withdrawl from the course immediately. I dont exactly agree with that but thats what you should do according to her. The test questions are complex beyond reasoning. I don't recommend her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    not helpful at all. Her test were impossible. Her lectures didnt help and she would get off subject a lot. She is expected you to learn a lot from her labs. Her exam reviews were awful she spent 45 minutes talking about the diaphram when only one of the exam questions was on it. ...Continue reading

    Really smart and lectures are funny. WSU needs more profs like him. This guy is simply great. Very funny and tells stories that relate to the tipic to help students understand the matrial. He is very kind and well organized. Gives everything needed to pass the class, so how well you study is up to you. Shows videos from youtube a lot, and they are helpful. Take Dr. Lee, I will miss his class!! !!!! :) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Dr. Lee is an amazing professor and makes class very interesting and engaging. Realizes you're going for a major and that you don't already have it unlike some profs. Tests are easy if you look at the study guide. Gives you everything that is going to be on the test. Goes over more than just the book. He's entertaining and uses stories to help you understand the material. Goes above and beyond to make the course ultra-simple. Don't use the book the exam comes straight off the study guide. He's a nice guy and is really excited about what he teaches. I highly recommend him. Be prepared for lame jokes! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He is a really nice guy but I felt that I was better prepared with the professor we had for the first half of the semester. He honestly tries to come up with ways to help you understand the material. Understanding and laid back. Funny! Going to lecture is not mandatory but its always entertaining. TAKE BIO FROM LEE! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He is such an amazing teacher wish I had him for the entire class instead of only the second part of the semester!!! He keeps the lectures exciting, helps you understand with funny stories, and will help you a lot if there are any questions. If you get the chance to take any of his classes, you should take it! He made 106 so much fun, and his exams were not especially difficult. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Super funny guy. Made lectures engaging. Knew how to talk to students so he wasn't talking down to them. Gave great study guides before exams so it was really clear what we needed to know. Would take any class taught by Lee! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    He is a great professor when he nerds out about biology and such, however some of his jokes were offensive and unnecessary. He is very humorous, though his humorous tangents often go on a little too long. His lecture material is covered perfectly on the test, and he is very willing to help or explain whenever any questions are asked. His classes are definitely one of the most enjoyable that I've attended so far He is hilarious and really tries to make class interesting. He is very relatable and shows some pretty cool videos in class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He is a good professor and really cares about what he teaches. His part of class was way more interesting than the first part of the class. The study guides are very long and extensive and aren't always the best when preparing for tests. Be sure to go to class and retain everything he says, because it will definitely be on a exam. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He says lecture is optional, but go. Considerate and precise, all test material is covered in lecture. The guy is a riot, and he made everything in the subject-matter into a joke or example that you could remember and relate to later on without even studying your notes. The tests are straight-forward so you aren't tricked out of the right answer if you're a bad test taker its A, B or C! ...Continue reading

    Dr. Lee is very funny and makes class fun. However, I found that he didn't prepare us well for exams. Yes, he makes a study guide but they are vague and confusing and didn't really help all that much. I found his exams to be pretty hard, because taking notes while he goes off on some random topic is hard. ...Continue reading

    awesome teacher, interresting lecture. I'm a good student and studied like mad for it, but still failed the test. I got B's on Roalson's tests (uncurved), but this guy gets so specific, it's insane. The lectures are more entertaining than Roalson. ...Continue reading

However, from the given information the exam questions are VERY specific and unexpectedly difficult. He does curve though. ...Continue reading

    Want an A&#63 Get a photographic memory... Completely and totally entertaining with an engaging and witty lecture style. His tests, however (like everyone else has been saying) are simply insane.

    Tests are extremely difficult for a 100 level class. Instead of going over a broad topic, he tends to have a very specific detail about something. Although he gives you all the lectures typed up, his tests are hard! His own TA's even think they are to difficult. If this class is not required for your major by all means do not take it, unless of course you are the next Einstein. ...Continue reading
