Comment:
I loved Dr. Klimowski however, I would never want to take her class again. She is a very nice and understandable person but, her test were extremely difficult and she does not teach at all. For most of the class she rambled about her sons and other family members. I would recommend reviewing notes before test because her test were extremely hard.

Comment:
She is a very nice woman but she does not do a lot of actual teaching. She lectures and goes through material too quickly. I would recommend doing outside research on diseases before you take this course as she lectures as if you have a medical background. She is willing to help you out if you are struggling but her tests are very hard.

Comment:
Dr. Klimowski is a very nice, warm and personable woman -however her Bio class is none of the above. It is 100% lecture based, and all slides are taken directly from the textbook (don't bother purchasing it, you won't need it). She is very willing to help her students, sometimes offers review sessions before tests, but grades on very few things.

Comment:
The class was enjoyable but the professor was dreadful. She always just talked about her life, her friends, her children. She lectured so much. Almost every class she had a video that was from the 80's and no longer relevant to this time. If you go against her opinion she will fight you in front of the whole class.

Comment:
Hate science, still do after this course. Class isn't too bad if you're good at memorizing technical stuff. 3 Tests and 2 easy "grade booster" projects. No nightly homework. Her notes are LONG and Copious, so be ready to write. If you're not a science major looking to fill a credit, this is probably the best choice.

Comment:
This class is based highly on memorization and tests were just a regurgitation of what should be in your notes. I never used the textbook because everything was covered in class. She was an easy grader when it came to projects and we never had homework or reading to do. Overall a good class to get your science requirement completed.

Comment:
Prior to the class, I was terrified by the other remarks thinking she would be horrible. She really isn't that bad, and is generally a nice lady. She does do notes at warp speed however, and it is so hard to copy everything legibly. She always gave a clear outline for every test, but they were pretty challenging. I alwyas got Bs on the tests.

Comment:
The class was mostly easy, but I am a science major. I don't see it being nearly as possible for non-science majors. However, if you are interested in it and don't mind reading I highly recommend it. The projects are easy grade boosters. The tests are pretty specific, but it's easy to weed out wrong answers. Nice sense of humor and a lot of stories

Horrible. She reads directly out of the book. She has a pdh but does not use it. Worst Canisius professor I have come upon.

Comment:
She's a nice person, but the class is rough. You really have to read the book, because if you just study notes you wont get above a 70. That?s all this class is, is note taking, and she really speeds through them like you're supposed to write at warp speed. The tests are hard, and ask VERY specific information that you learned about 3 weeks prior.

Comment:
This teacher is very boring to listen to and often goes very fast on notes. unless you are good at note taking or you have a laptop you will be so far behind in the first class you will never catch up. The material she teaches is incredibly difficult for a non science major and there is a significant amount of information to learn. lexture class

Nice lady, but class was horrible. It is straight note taking with one or two boring videos. Tests were impossible and she tested us on material that was not covered or in the notes. Loves kids in the pharmacy, pre-med program and will call on them all the time.

Comment:
She is the worst professor that i have ever had. She does not teach any of the material that appears on her exams and tests. Gives note on an overhead and does not give students enough time to copy notes down. She does not have a clue what she is talking about and if you ask her a question she rarely knows the answer. Do not take this class!

She is so stupid. Her notes are confusing because she write on an overhead with marker like we're still in middle school. She doesnt know how to spell and abbreviates everything. Her tests are hard. You have to study from her notes and the book, but sometimes its still not enough.

Comment:
I beg to differ. Klimowski's class would be easy... if it was the only one you were taking. Homework assignments and tests seem easy until you get them back with a failing grade marked at the top. Her only bit of advice is "study harder". She is an extremely tough grader. Avoid her unless you enjoy helplessly watching your GPA plummet.

I don't think shes a bad professor. However she does get side tracked a-lot and is a bit of a hypochondriac. The class is mainly note taking and its not hard as long as you study.
