    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's a hard but very fair teacher who encourages critical thinking and looking past the general understanding and definitions of subject matter. Her tests and quizzes are filled with application questions which test higher level thinking.Don't over think her questions, she's not trying to trick you, they are very straight forward but you need to know the material. Studying and paying attention during lecture is extremely important. My advice, print out her power points before class and add additional notes during lecture.

    Course highlights:

    Because of her format for tests and quizzes you have a higher retention rate of the material. The tests and quizzes are difficult but will only help you over time. She did interesting hands- on activities that many of my fellow classmates saw as childish, however I believe this to be an important part of learning is visually seeing the material being taught.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class is key, she bases her tests of off what she talks about in class, not necessarily just power points, have power points ready prior to lecture. There is a lot of pictures and information on the slides that she will tell you what you need to study and what you should just be familiar with. Study, ask questions and follow her class rules, it is rude not to.
