    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't strongly recommend the class because there wasn't anything striking about the course and some people might not be able to understand the professor because of her accent.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the field trips and the extra credit assignments. They really give you a chance to redeem your grade and give you extra insight on the course.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and participate in class. Most of the material on the midterm and final are in the textbook and aren't discussed in class. Also, you receive a participation grade, so make sure you participate. She also has a weird philosophy that no one can get a perfect score on an assignment, so make sure you do extra credit if it is offered.

    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Teaching style is archaic and she allows no makeups for midterms. She mostly talks the whole hour and test material is hardly taught in class. discussions are sometimes engaging, but mostly just short responses from students.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the discussions and the extra credit she gave.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you get her as a teacher, it may come off as an easy class, but you must study the textbook vigorously. If you don't, then you will miss a lot of questions on the midterm and final. There are only 2 assignments outside of the midterm and final, so make sure you do well on the tests. Also, make sure you participate in discussions and attend class often because those are also separate grades.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course material is eye opening and the professor is very knowledgeable and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I got the big picture of the US society. By taking this course one does not become an expert on social problems and methods of resolving them, but certainly gets the big picture. Financial, health and psychological phenomena in the US need to be viewed in the context they exist, US society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions. Professor McNeec is very helpful and appreciates participation. If you have difficulty with anything don't hesitate to ask.
