SOC270 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

This was an interesting, but tough course. You need a lot of time to spend on the material, which I wasn't able to, and barely passed. I recommend taking this if/when you have the time to spare to concentrate on it. The professor was nice/helpful and responded in a timely manner to questions.

SOC270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Ballesteros is the reason I chose Sociology as a major! I now have an A.A and B.A in Sociology, she was a great teacher.I just think too many people expect community college to be a piece of cake, you should want to be challenged in college.I took this class with other teachers and failed and I passed with her, and math is not my strong suit.

SOC 270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: WD

About to xfer to SDSU.I have a 3.9 overall GPA. I had tough teachers before. This lady really doesn’t know how to teach. She lacks passion and her lectures are extremely boring and confusing. It seems like she needs to proof something and treats you like a child. Prof. R Contreras is awesome! Do yourself a favor…don’t take this class with her!

Soc270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a very good teacher if you are a good student who completes the online homework/quizes and you actually read the chapter. If you don't do all that, there is no way you will pass this class. This class is a lot of work that requires real time and effort and you need to ask questions if you don't understand something. The book at SWC is ~$110.

She's a very nice teacher. I don't know why the other comment say she is not. However, she should clarify more what the next class will be about. Actually, she's pretty nice but take the time to go to her office hours and get to know her. She will definately help you a lot more in her office hours. I recommend her, but be ready for a lot of work.

Soc501 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible teacher, doesn't care about her students. If you email her she will respond to you like you're stupid, her tests are hard and the amount of time she gives for a test is ridiculous! She doesn't give extra credit except on a few of the tests, that is if u have enough time to get to the extra credit Qs. She shouldn't be teaching...

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR!!! Even if this class is the last one u need to transfer and all the other classes are full...wait another semester or even if its a year wait!! She doesn't care about her students and she's not clear at all! It's like she hates her job or something! If you email her shell respond back rude and talk down to you like you nothing....my GPA was perfect till I took her class!
