Comment: Really bad lecturer. She would often yell at people for asking questions. Her exams were awful as well. Half of her midterm consisted of 'choose all that apply' type questions. There would be like 6 choices for each question and they were only worth one point each. (all or nothing; no partial credit) Avoid taking this class with her.

Comment: She's super enthusiastic so you become engaged in the lecture. You have to know everything for her exams though... take really good notes and don't miss anything on the board or anything she says.

Comment: She's not a nice person at all! She's the kind of the educator that expects "only the best" and called out the notetaker a couple of times, saying "don't ask questions." Her tests were tougher than you'd expect and is very specific.

Comment: Dr. Lew was very interested in her own material and had a whole lot to cover in her section in the class. Her lectures are fast paced and therefore hard to keep up with and also not that clearly organized. She demands an unfair amount of attention from students, expecting them to memorize details that are truly ridiculous. In studying for her section you will really understand the basics in your attempt to memorize everything she ever said. So you will learn a lot about the material but still may not do well on the test. However she is very helpful and enthusiastic about the material.

Comment: Professor Lew is a very entertaining, animated, caring, knowledgable, and experienced professor in her field. however, I can understand why some students say they don't like her. Her exams are definitely VERY detailed and require (for me, anyway) 9-10 hours of studying beforehand, but she's very clear about what she wants you to know. If you don't understand what she says, GO AND ASK - I can GUARANTEE that she'll take the time to help you understand. (She saw my notes and was horrified, and took her own time to CREATE AN ENTIRE TABLE of the concept that my notes supposedly talked about. The table was available to the entire class.)

Comment: Dr. Lew is extremely enthusiastic, and her lecture style is refreshing! She uses the chalkboards and moves around the classroom: she is really engaging. The wording and format of her exam questions, however, was unfair.

Comment: Dr. Lew is very intense. She has her own reader for her 1/3 of the class, which she references constantly. The reader itself is a little confusing, but overall informative. She tries her best to answer questions during lecture but is not very patient with people who haven't been paying attention. Take A LOT of notes, read the book, be present in lecture, and you will thouroughly enjoy her more hands-on, interactive style.

Comment: She is a very enthusiastic professor, I love that she has an accent! She brings in items to help us learn the material better. However, hard to follow when she talks because she goes so fast, and she writes on the board, but very FAST! Exam was a bit difficult for her because it was so vague.

Comment: Lew is an extremely difficult professor in that she is very detail-oriented. Her lectures are very quick and packed full of information. She covers the endocrine, muscle, and cardiovascular systems in less than 5 lectures. GIven that, she needs to go quickly. Her tests are very hard as well as they demand a lot of attention to minute details. However, as a student who got an A in the overall class and went to her office hours for about 10 hours, she is very helpful and really sweet. She values students' feedback and if you want do well (truly want) and are willing to give the class your all, you will do great :) I learned a lot from this class.

Comment: Her lectures are extremely disorganized and difficult to learn from. Her exam was the hardest out of all three professors and I felt lost most of the time even though I went to lecture everyday.

Comment: Helen is a really amazing professor. Her lectures provide real insight on how the human body system work and she has some really funny but relevant analogies. I've had her for both Bio1AL and MCB32, and the one thing I'd really advise is to really, really study the material and to go to her office hours. She has specific ways for testing students, so don't just study the facts; study how to facts relate to each other, what categories specific hormones fall into, etc. If you don't study it this way, you'll find the exam super, super hard.

Comment: Didn't really assign anything. Very engaging lecturer with a peculiar but likable accent. Notes and reader were easy to follow and midterm was based off these two. Exam was a bit difficult but that was because of the material, not her.
