her deadlines are extremely strict, and yet she never returns your work to you. go figure. as long as you read the textbook and attend lecture, the midterm/final will be a piece of cake.

i had her over the summer. she's pretty cool, explains as much as you need her to until you understand what she's talking about. sometimes she goes off topic during class and starts telling stories, but she's pretty funny.

The overall exams were easy and self explanatory. It really depends on your TA, but if you do all that you are required and study for the exams u will be fine.

Her class was very challenging! But in the end, found the info to be useful in other classes. Final was open notes and book, but still pretty difficult.

Class should be avoided if possible. I found most of the information useless. All of the lectures where required and a waste of time. The labs where sometimes fun, because I had a great ta, but Kam was just a bad teacher. She often contradicted herself and many times comes off as stupid just to get a laugh out of the class

Lectures are mandatory. I didn't take notes and still passed that class with a good grade. Just make sure that you attend all classes since that is a major part of the grade. Dr. Kam is very unusually happy all the time. She is somewhat ditsy and doesn't realize the dumb things she does sometimes. Other than that, this class was easy.

She's annoyingly cheery at every lecture. The tests were a joke, they were unusually difficult compared to what she taught and what you learned from labs. The one thing I couldn't stand is how she would tilt her head and say "MMKAY?" every five minutes.

The mandatory lectures on Mondays are the majority of the exams. She'll recommend that you take notes during the lectures. If you do that and review the notes the night before the midterm/final, you should have no problem getting a B or higher. Make sure you do all of the work assigned in the lab!

SP470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Teacher definatly has a lot of energy and keeps the class energetic as well. very hard to fall asleep int his class. tests are resonable. As long as you go to class and write the notes, tests shouldn't be too much of a problem. the test are 70% based on her lectures.

UGHH! I did not like her...I agree with the other person's comments: she plays favorites with students. I didn't find her funny--only lame.

AWFUL! Worst teacher I've had in 4 years at UH! I would not recommend her to anyone. However, she has her OBVIOUS favorites in class, so if you're a kiss-up/teacher's pet you'll do fine, if not, it's a hard A.

She's a very happy and outgoing person. She's like the energizer bunny that never stops moving. As long as you do all your work you'll pull an "A."

the class was pretty fun, make sure that you do all of the preparation steps for the speeches bc they count for more of your grade than the actual speeches themselves. intereting lectures, the teacher is very energetic

Pretty easy class in general. She gives you exact outlines so basically just have to copy those and be within the time limit. The midterm and final are hard though. Easy A if you pass those.
