Easy A! Just read the textbook and following along with powerpoint to know what exactly you need to remember for quizzes. READING IS KEY!! KNOW THE GLOSSARY or refer to powerpoint titles as well if you want to double check some stuff while testing.

This class was faced paced. I took online during Mini-mester. Dr. E responds so fast to e-mails. She is super nice, and cares that her students succeed! The book was mandatory. We had 4 quzzes and 1 paper. I had to read all the chapters. She does provide pp notes that are hepful during the test but you must read. This was a good elective class!

Hard class, but if you do all the work an submit your assignments then it is petty easy. Tests where difficult for me even when I read the material. The book was extremely boring. I would recommend her and definitely take another class with her.

Professor Emeka, is a good instructor. Overall the class was not difficult at all...you must study for the exams...they are not easy, but it takes an effort on your part to pass them.

I took her for two different classes. By far one of the best professors I have had. Assigns readings from the text then reviews them with well prepared PP presentations. Encourages class involvement. Grading standards are clear. Highly recommended!!!

i have taken her for two classes. she relies upon powerpoint which comes straight from the book. all you have to do is read the book and you'll do fine. the lectures are helpful to reinforce your reading. the tests are easy and she does give simple reviews. in this class had a term paper group project trip to justice center. very nice very knowledg

This professor is very knowledgable about the material. If you take the class online you have to be very discipline. I thoroughly enjoyed the class. In regards to the test they are extremely hard and you don't get a review at all. You can pass the class but you have to read and study. It is not easy at all!

She gave more work than a regular graduate professor. Daily 2 page assignments, 10 page paper, in class mid-term, and final exam during summer. Will never take her for a class again.

F2F class. Uses book and powerpoint. Attendance mandatory because she has speakers and in class assignments that she awards points towards final grade. Study powerpoints and keep up with chapters and will do well in class. Very helpful and responsive to questions and emails. Highly recommend, will take again.

Great course! Uses the book and Power Point to instruct from. If you come to class, do the work she gives, you should make an A! Will take another class from her again!

An ok prof, but she seems to have little, if any, experience in the real field of CJ outside of the classroom. If you want a fairly easy prof, take her. If you want to learn first hand from a CJ prof with experience in the field, dont. I must say, however, she is a very nice lady. This class had 3 exams, 2 article reviews,a paper,and a presentation

Great teacher, knows a lot about the juvenile justice system and makes class fun. If you sleep or act foolish she will call you out infront of the whole class. She is great.

I think she is a very good teacher. Her test are very easy if you study the study guide she gives out. There aren't any surprises when it comes to the the test. She may seem mean and it may seem like she have a smart mouth but thats just her. You will see. But if you want an easy A (or B if you dont want to work as hard), you should take her

I disagree with the negative comments. I have taken her for several classes. She is a great professor and her test are very easy. If you stdy the study guide and do your assignments, you will pass. She might come off the wrong way but thats just her personality. Once you get used to it you will see that she is not bad at all.

She's great! The test are easy if you study the study guide she gives. She goes over everything thats going to be on the test in class on powerpoint so take good notes. I got an A in this class. Just go to class read the chapters, ask questions (if any), and you will pass.
