Comment:
Dr Hsu's class simple if you put in the work and study the slides, but there is a lot of info on her PowerPoints so DON'T CRAM. Her tests have open ended and true/false as well, so be ready. She's funny though, and will call out kids in front of the whole auditorium for dumb answers, so I would leave participation up to people with thick skin.

Best bio professor ever! Dr. Hsu really cares about her students and she will do so much to help you if you approach her outside of class. She is very passionate about teaching biology and makes the funniest jokes to. Her class is definitely hard work, but it is so worth it!

she's the cutest person ever, her tests are all just powerpoint so just memorize that, she really cares about her students, but your grade is based on just 4 tests so don't slack off

So I didn't do good in the class. But I'm being so serious when I say she's an amazing teacher. She know's what she's talking about, everything is straight forward from her slides. I just think her tests are ridiculous hard, I knew the info, just was a bad test taker. Her tests are T/F, MC, and short answer,it's tricky. But she's funny, and nice.

she is a great teacher but tests are definitely tough. besides learning the material, you have to learn how to take the test because the questions often try to trick you, which I dont understand why, but put in the effort and should get a B. only 4 test grades including the final, which is alot of pressure but can be done if you put the effort.

Comment:
Dr. Hsu was probably one of the best professors I've had. She is respected by students, and shows the same respect for her students. You need to read her powerpoints to pass, and you can definitely study the weekend before the test and still do well. If you have the opportunity to take her, do it.

Worst professor i ever had the displeasure of taking a course with. If you want to hate your life this is the class for you. She makes the course (the tests) as hard as she possibly can, do yourself a favor, take the class with the other bio 1201 professor.

Do not take. Horrible course set up. You will be wasting good money. Powerpoints and vocabulary. Exams are not easy and a lot of reading. Exams are confusing. The professor as a person is sweet. Your education wise not so much. Made me switch majors

Dr. Hsu is the cutest old Chinese women and I love her. Her exams were difficult but manageable and her lectures were very clear and understandable. She gives extra credit by having you read an article and she lives office hours. You only fail if you don't put in any effort.

Hsu is like everyone's grandmother. She relates a lot of lessons to her life and it is the funniest thing ever. She's also really good at teaching, make sure you read her slides and do the vocabulary she gives to you on blackboard, they help a lot. Love her forever, also she will remember your name!

Took as an elective. Would not take again. Class is hard. Tests are difficult even if you know the material and studied every vocabulary word. Save your time and money.

Comment:
Some words to describe her: very well-read, insightful, great sense of humor & does not believe in excuses. In other words, to get an A in her classes: work your butt off by studying for her exams a week or two ahead and ask questions. Also, great resource for pre-med advising, helped me with some great advice & contacts. She is brilliant.

Really nice, very funny and definitely knows what she's talking about. Makes lectures interesting and fun, and always is available to help. Her tests, however, are not easy. They are more like test-taking skills tests rather than straight-forward biology. This can get quite annoying as you studied a lot but get tripped up by tricky questions.

Shes a really nice professor but her exams were so confusing that even if you studied for hours the questions trip you up. Definitely study for her exams and ask questions when confused.
