    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ruf is a sweet lady. She's fun and energetic, and she doesn't lull you to sleep with pretentious lectures. Her paper reviews are clear and helpful. I recommend this class to anyone who enjoys writing and wants to see their skills improve. For those of you itching for an easy Comp-II class, this should still scratch in the right place, as she tends to scale the class to the individual. The only real surprising thing that I wish I had been prepared for earlier is that she expects your format to be a little more precise than other professors do. She'll teach you the formats, so no worries if you don't know what that means, but just be prepared to write essays in a way you may not be immediately used to. As long as you're willing to listen and take notes, you'll thrive!

    Course highlights:

    My paper reviews with Professor Ruf were certainly the best part. She was very helpful and clear in her analysis of my writing style, prose, logical reasoning, etc. If anything, her ability to articulate issues and advice with equal politeness and enthusiasm was a treat. I learned a lot about my writing style in this class, as well as ways to improve it. Best of all, I learned how to conduct research quickly but effectively. I always wondered how graduates could write such long dissertations with so many references, but, after taking this class, I now see that I am capable of doing it myself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do not own a laptop, prepare to spend a lot of time in the library using the computers. If you do own a laptop, getting familiar with EverNote and Google Docs ahead of time couldn't hurt. There were a lot of newcomers in my class, though, and everyone did well so you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
