    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Aside from degree requirements, I would recommend this particular class and professor for how the class is organized and operated. The verbal lectures and given notes, the testing procedures, the professors willingness to answer questions are all set up in such a way that really gives students a great opportunity to be successful. Even for students who are "bad" at math, I would still highly recommend this course for reasons stated above. The professor covers each topic very well and in depth leaving many students, or at least me, with very few questions left to ask. She also provided a lot of resources on her blackboard page, in addition to the textbook, that provided further clarification and help when needed. The few questions I did have were answered with full understanding on my part, and sincerity on her part.

    Course highlights:

    She really emphasized group work, and from that, I figured out that helping someone else understand something, or even having both of us seeking an answer really made the content stick. Even if you completely know what you're doing, helping someone else learn it re-emphasizes the process in which you yourself learned it in addition to the benefits of repetition. In my opinion, doing so is just as effective for truly mastering the material, if not more so, than simply laboring through an endless amount of practice problems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the test reviews! Every test review was significantly harder than the actual test. If you are able to complete the test review, than the actual test will be much easier. After each lecture, she scans the notes and posts them on blackboard. This is helpful for when you miss class, but relying on it without writing in class or paying attention is foolish. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Some professors can be pretty scathing when you ask questions that are "dumb", she is not one of them and will politely answer any question(and I heard some pretty ridiculous questions).

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class to anyone who is willing to learn. Professor Sells is a bit poor at teaching but provides many opportunities in his classroom to do well.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Sells tests were very relevant to what he taught in his class. There were no surprises.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you need a strong worth ethic.
