Easy class if you study. You must keep up with the reading to do well on exams. Lectures are based on her own ideologies which she presents as facts (this can be very annoying, especially since she tests you on this non sense). Lots of essays throughout the semester, and she refuses online sources. Research paper consists of outline format however.

Her class is very easy. Just make sure to PAY ATTENTION during class, not very hard. And I read the book the morning of the tests, I aced every test but one, I got a B. Do all the extra credit. Its so easy and I did all the extra credit the morning of or night before. She sometimes makes her students feel stupid, thats for sure. Attendance is key.

Great professor and subject. Just need to read sections of textbook and review lectures. Professor provides study guides for test. Grades fair, and is willing to offer extra credit.

Rillorta is an amazing professor. She really puts the subject material in perspective for you by providing examples. You will get to talk and learn a lot about yourself through her class. She is straightforward so make sure you follow her guidelines and you should be fine. She always wants students to succeed and is very helpful and supportive.

She requires punctuality. But she has a great conversational tone to her lectures, and she puts things in perspective.

Very nice. She was determined to have all her students pass and even though she said there were clear deadlines that would result in a drop if you ignored, there were several students that still stuck around. Regardless, I really liked her class. Exactly what is on the book and what she lectures is on the tests. Easy if you don't mind volunteering

One of my favorite classes at Mt. Sac. She knows what she is talking about and requires her students to participate. This is a fun and easy class, but also very informative. I received an A by going to class everyday, doing the extra credit, and memorizing the vocab for the tests.

She's amazing! You absolutely need to read the book and study all terms! Class lectures are also important, since she does not teach from the book! Extra credit is highly recommended; although, you do not need it to get an A in the class. Read, pay attention, participate, a show up to class that's all you need. She also expects you to know things.

I was really interested in taking a Gerontology class but was disappointed with lack of useful information in the lectures.Lectures were comprised of one or two simple topics dissected ad nauseam.The class itself is easy but what makes this class more work than it's worth is the mandatory 50+ hours of volunteer work you need to do to get an A.

Dr. Rillorta is one of the best professors I have ever had. She introduced me to Sociology and was my mentor in community college. She changed my life and without her I would not be where I am today, graduated from CSUSB and USC and a Sociology professor at a community college. She is fair and dedicated to her students and she is a great person!

Professor Rillorta is a great professor! Read the book. Go to class everyday. participate in class and you will be fine. There is a lot of extra credit opportunities. It is not hard to get an A as long as you do ALL the work.

Not a fan of her teaching style but her class is very easy. You absolutely need to read the textbook because she does not teach from it, but she will test you on it.

Liked to play favorites...that got old pretty fast. Lecture consisted of one to three main points being dissected to oblivion. Overall, she's easy as heck as long as you read that outdated godforsaken book. It only cost me twenty bucks so I take that back. Oh...and you can win her heart with food as the previous person stated. That is all. :)

Ridiculous excuse for a college professor. A class period consists of everybody sharing their experiences with one particular sociological term, and you have to buy your grade by bringing food for the class before every test.

I also took her for SOC 20H, and SOC 14. She is an amazing professor. She expects students to follow directions. You need to read the book to get an A in the class (for all her classes). I am a straight A student and she is the only class I have had to read for, but I would definitely suggest reading.

Awesome teacher. Just study notes and bolded terms in the book, and your good for tests. As far as written assignments go, there aren't too many and just don't make grammar mistakes or force conclusions and your good. I also too her for 20H, I wish I could take more of her classes. Soft sciences ftw

Linda is nice but she does play favorites. Sucking up to her helps and if you are in her SL3 class it helps even more. She does not lecture from the book so you need to read it yourself and study lecture notes as well, which works out for her I guess. She gets impatient so don't ask too many questions. Also: "watching TV kills brain cells"

Shows a lot of favoritism, not cool if you are a professor. Some people can be late to class, no problem, while others will lose points and be ridiculed.If you like being treated with fairness and respect, then she is not the teacher for you, honestly.I will give her this, she is very structured with no surprises, she sticks to the syllabus.
