BIO 311D
INTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY II
5*****
Pros: Dr.Buskirk is an amazing teacher. It is noticeable that she enjoys the subject and helping her students. She is very approachable and emphasizes student participation in class. Definitely one of the best professors I have ever had. Her tests are also very fair and as long as you study, you will do fine.
Cons: The only problem I had with her class was that she only posted brief powerpoint of what was going to be taught in class.
