Dr. Ahmed was overall a great professor. She always stopped during class to see if there were any questions and seemed to always want to help. Her tests, however, were very hard and did not cover just the things on the powerpoint. Take her class if you want to learn, but not if you want an amazing …more grade. less

Looking back on this class, I realize I learned a lot. However, it wasn't easy. Tests are hard, the best way to study is to read the powerpoint slides OVER and OVER unti it's literally drilled into your head. She asks specific details. Just relax and remember that lab is 40% of your grade and it …more does help your final grade a lot! less

Says incorrect information on a regular basis. Monotone. Unexcited. Nice outside of class, annoying in lecture. You dont need to go. I almost never did and got a solid B with minimal effort. Lab will save your grade.

Awful teacher. Tests are all trick questions. Doesn't answer questions and tell you to look up answers to your questions on your own. Not helpful at all. Expects you to know everything she says for her tests.

Drops lowest test grade. Remaining tests, final, lab, and a short paper make up grade. Generally gets through a chapter each class, reads straight from powerpoints posted before class, so print them out. Tests get more specific with each one. Semi-cumulative final. Always asks if there are ?s …more and gives reviews the class day before tests. less

Awful instructor, one of the worst I've had at ASU. Her response when you are confused or wanting to ask her a question is, "well, did you google it?" or "its just simple memorization." Trick questions on the test, it doesn't matter if you know the material you will still be stumped by her wording. …more Wanted to be hit by a bus before this class. less

Lectures are clear and interesting. Print out slides, take good notes because her tests are supa hard. Human micro was very difficult. You need to not just know the specifics of every disease covered but the smallest details and differences. Study hardcore.

I really liked Dr. Ahmed. Always willing to answer questions and likes discussion in class. Her tests are extremely hard... print out powerpoints and take the best notes you can. Lab helps out a lot, so take it seriously.

Dr. Ahmed is hands down one of the best/smartest professors within the Bio department at appstate. She is a virologist herself so the virology course is probably one of the hardest courses offered. There is a lot of primary literature reading, presentations, and writing assignments. However, she is …more VERY helpful and does care about her students. less

Dr. Ahmed is very intelligent but so very dry. I almost fell asleep in every single class even when I tried to pay attention as best as possible. She reads straight from the powerpoints and sometimes will give additional information. Doesnt take attendance so thats good. And tests are the hardest …more tests Ive ever taken. Be prepared to really study! less
