She has absolutely no desire to teach - and it shows. She should just stick with research because she is an awful teacher. She makes fun of students in class (whether they are there or not); refuses to listen to questions; very rude in person; terrible notes and powerpoints; she is, by all …more practical definitions, a bad professor. less

Many people think that she's a bad teacher, but all you have to do is go to the lectures or even listen to the istream. She's fairly clear and uses her notes for about 95% of the questions on the test. If more than one person asks the same question she'll be a little mean about it, but you had it …more comming. Just study and you'll get at least a B. less

She is horrible! She makes kids feel bad for asking questions. She will make sure you feel dumb and has no desire to teach. She will make sure to talk about only her research and cares only about herself. Take embryology with Dr. Ulbright!

She is the WORST professor I have ever had. It's obvious that she has no desire to teach and is only doing it to fund her research. She lies about what will be on the exams, and she will give you different answers for the same question. Then she treats you like you're an idiot for not knowing the …more correct answer. The mandatory book is useless. less

I went into this class terrified because of all these reviews. Everything you need for the exams is in the Powerpoints. The practice tests are like 50% of the exam... plus she devotes an entire day before each exam as review! She gives extra credit for pop quizzes. It comes out to over 10% in EC. …more Exams are curved too. I really enjoyed the class. less

Dr. Chernoff is a great professor. She's very approachable, and she makes some corny jokes during lecture, which I enjoyed. She explained any questions that students had thoroughly. Exams are highly based on the practice exam which she goes over the answers for during review day. She also curves …more the exams. I would take her class again! less

THIS IS A WARNING. DONT TAKE THIS CLASS BECAUSE SHE IS A HORRIBLE PROFESSOR. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOUR DAMN GRADE IS AND SHE WILL MARK YOU WRONG ON STUFF WHEN YOU ARE REALLY CORRECT. CHECK EVERY EXAM AFTER THEY ARE GRADED FOR YOUR SAFETY. RECORD EVERY LECTURE SHE WILL TEND TO CONTRADICT HERSELF ON …more MULTIPLE ENCOUNTERS THEN GET MAD WHEN YOU ASK Q'S. less
