    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Kennedy tells everyone on the first day that it is impossible to pass his class. Some people love him, but a lot of students struggle through his class and come out unsuccessful. I was one of those unfortunate ones. Only 6 people finished his class and I know 2 of those did not pass. With this class being a requirement for many majors, I think it would be much better to provide access to positive and encouraging instructors, even if the course is notoriously difficult.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it is very important to log onto Rate My Professor website and research the instructors. This instructor I mentioned earlier had a student average grade of a D at the time I registered with him. Had I looked, I would have most likely made a different choice.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Enroll with a different professor. If you do end with with him, use websites like Khan academy and YouTube videos to supplement what you do not learn from him. Find other people to study with. I made the mistake of not having a reliable study partner. If I had, I'm sure I would have done a lot better in this course.
