Don't be scared off by all the negative reviews. I got an A in this class simply by reading the book, going to class, and reviewing for an hour or two before the exam. Despite other comments, the reviews are a great help prior to exams, and she does her absolute best to make test questions are straightforward as possible.

One of the more difficult classes at UCF. If you're a communications major and this class is required there's really no way around it. Her lectures are fairly useless. She gets sidetracked a lot. Tests are extremely difficult and she comes off condescending most of the time. Fortunately she takes the time to write study guides which help for tests

This class is tough, there is no way around that because of the material. She really tries to make it manageable for students and is willing to help out if you ask. She's sarcastic and funny, but you have to learn to appreciate her personality or else you'll just think she's rude. Great lady! Tough class that makes you really learn. Must have book!

Super nice lady, not the greatest teacher. Passionate about what she does, very difficult to follow. Sidetracked EXTREMELY easily. Can be condescending, but not directly to students' faces. Be prepared to work hard on your own - read and double read power points and the text book. Go to class if you're not familiar with concepts. Dreadfully boring.

I had Professor Holladay for two courses and I enjoyed her the most in this class. She is knowledgable, passionate, and very straight forward. She really encourages students to engage in the material and chooses things that are relavant. While it is not the easiest class, it certainly isn't the hardest either! I got a B!

She's really nice, but very boring. Her PPTs don't have anything to do with anything, and maybe 4% of that will be on the test. She likes class discussion, and loves current events and The Body Shop. The 3 exams are all from the 2 light textbooks, which weren't very fun IMO. Some test Qs from vids she posts online. Takes attendance bc so many skip.

Professor Holladay seems like a really nice person, but she's not a very good teacher. Class was long and boring, and yet there was little information on her power points because it was mostly her rambling the whole time. Test questions were fair. I got an A, so it's not impossible, but this is a class where you really need to study hard.

This class is 100% the hardest class I've taken. NOT because it's a hard subject, but because you basically teach yourself. You have to read pretty much the entire book to pass. Going to class is pointless because her notes are pointless. She rambles on about nothing related to the tests. SUPER NICE LADY, but take another professor if you can

She is the worst teacher I have ever had, I have never done so badly on tests or in a class. Her tests do not reflect the guides she offers and her lectures revolve around television shows. She is probably a nice woman but even rambles DURING our tests. I honestly feel like I am failing because of her "teaching" style.

She's kind of condescending. She isn't clear on definitions and examples of things in her lectures. I honestly learned more on my own than going to class. Take online if they offer?? If not, stick it out you will get through it. Do the reading guides, study guides, and quizzes you will at least pass :)

AVOID HER CLASS IF POSSIBLE. I had her for Corporate Social Responsibility and we talked about Ben & Jerry's for a majority of the semester!

Takes her a full 3 hours to cover 30 minutes worth of information. Rambles on and on, and takes a million years to make her point. Very boring, and everybody dreads the class. Very sweet, but a horrible teacher. Avoid!

Wow. Now, we all know people at UCF hate studying and are opposed to thinking or reading, but, this professor is an abuse of power and control. Is the class hard? No, not really, just prepare yourself to digress and talk about MythBusters till you're blue in the face. I learned nothing from the horse's mouth, only by reading the text.

I took her for Mass Media Research Methods and cannot understand the ratings below. She is an awesome teacher and knows what her studets need to succeed. She lets you know exactly what will be on the test & is extremely helpful in answering any questions. I highly recommend her! Trust me, you'll do amazing if you go to class,pay attention,& study!

Terrible teacher! Her class in incredibly boring, and a waste of time. She rambles on about Myth Busters and other trivial thoughts until she can find her point, which can take awhile. She treats you like an elementary students, constantly telling you to write your name on the test and explaining simple concepts. I dreaded it every Monday! AVOID!

Super nice, but probably one of the worst teachers I've had at UCF. Very condescending and she will make you feel stupid. Grades VERY hard and focuses so much on showing how much she knows she forgets to make sure that students are grasping the concepts. I dreaded every day of her class and would not recommend taking her if you can avoid it.
