Her class was not hard. If you read and study the textbook, you'll be fine. Just stay on top of Word Search Assignments and do the extra credit as needed. She gives a few assignments to help boost your grade. The course alone requires much studying. No matter who the professor is. Just do your best you'll be fine.

Memorize all the term in the book and you'll be okay. Spend an hour each day to learn the terms, then you will pass with an A. The exams are fill in the blank. There is extra credit work.

Although there is no pre-requisite for this class, it is strongly recommended to take Anatomy & physiology I and II before signing up for this class. If you're slow, don't take it online. Be your own teacher and e-mail Ms Jodi only for technical issues. Do all the extra credit quizzes. Final exam format: 130 fill in the blank question. Good Luck!

The class in general is not in actuality not that hard. It just utilizes alot of memory and even some prior knowledge. But this teacher doesnt help for the class at all. She answers every question the same expecting us to read her mind and it's frustrating. The word searchs are ridiculous with her constant undergrading. I havent gotten an A yet !

Online class, really difficult since it's A LOT of memorization. If you study the A is possible & EC is offered! Gootkin is quick to answer questions and helpful, she hand grades quizzes/exams to see if a higher grade is possible. Hard class but w/ all the material provided it's easier. Take alone if possible & do flash cards, extremely helpful!

Study, study, study! This class was very challenging, you'll do well if you read the chapters, make flash cards, and do the reviews within and at the end of each chapter. I loved the class. Professor Gootkin was extremely clear about what was expected, she was helpful with any questions and the online class was easy to navigate.

Ok,I was worried when I read the whining & complaining about this class. Is it hard? Yes. An online class w/out face to face contact w/ an instructor makes it more difficult. BUT, read the chapters, do the exercises, make flash cards & study, you will do fine. Don't expect to breeze thru! Prof, is helpful if you just ask. Do the extra credit also!

class is way too much, online quiz are shotr answers with little time to do it. Chapter test, plus word search that are due by midnight every friday.Never gotten any good grade on the Word serches no matter how much work I put In. Bottom line Is I wish this class was on campus than online so people can get better grades.

Just be self motivated and study. Very clearly layed out course. Every email I sent was answered the same day. I took the advice of an earlier rating and took this one course alone, and I am thankful for that advice. Professor Gootkin was very attentive. Chapter tests aren't too bad ( if you studied). Just do your part and you'll get an A.

The first 4 chapters will feel like a breeze, because they consist of just word parts. But then, the terms start coming, and boy they don't stop. It's a LOT of terms to remember for a 6-week class, it almost seems impossible. You have to manage your time wisely. Gootkin was VERY attentive though. She's a great online professor. Got an A!

If you take a summer course, if it's an online course, and if you care about GPA, PLEASE do not take this course. very hard and a lot of work. and just trying hard doesn't help you to get an A in this course. This is very hard and you don't have time to breathe....

This class is fairly hard if you don't study. An ease when you do study and learn the terms. I was recently in her class and as a teacher she is excellent! She is explains the material clearly and responses to emails quickly. Understand a situation once you talk with her. I would recommend anyone to take her class, but study well!

If you value your GPA I would suggest you not take this course with Jodi Gootkin or Gregory Ferenchak. Just to clarify, the reason the responses are polar opposites of one another. The reason is because Jodi Gootkin feels the need submit her own comments in an attempt to sway and mislead the truthful comments posted by students. So sad & pathetic.

For anyone who is not in the field avoid this professor, I tried to keep up, if you are taking it, take it alone or with easy classes as it requires time. Even for an online she makes it difficult and u cannot use the online exams for review, you can only see your grade.

I cant speak for everyone else but she was VERY nice to me and helped me pass. It's an online class so there's only so much she can do and it's not like your really gonna need her help anyways all you gotta do is memorize a whole bunch of vocabulary words. Make some flashcards and quiz yourself daily. Not that difficult.

this class is not easy to take. the test is 15 minutes, if you work do not take the classe online. Jodi she is worst professor. if you work at least a part time, don't take medical terminology online at BC. you better go to another school.
