Take good notes and read the textbook. She is very keen about reading the textbook before class. Very passionate about the subject. Everything is pretty straight forward. Put in the effort and you'll get a good grade.

I've taken several of Dr. Holladay's classes, and I've enjoyed all of them. She is a fun professor who is excited about what we learn. Don't expect to get a good grade without studying. My only complaint would be that she repeats herself a lot. A lot.

Maybe it was my fault for taking this as a summer class, but it was horrible! Grade based on 4 exams with lowest dropped, try your hardest on the first 3 because the final is too difficult to pass. The information in the course is not up to date which makes it annoying to learn. Need the book for study guide, but don't need to read, just skim.

Had her multiple times and disliked her at first. After realizing that she will not spoon feed her students, I started to enjoy going to class and the material covered. She helped out with my grade when I had a borderline A. You must be willing to work if you want a good grade, but you will learn A LOT if you take it seriously.

Taken during the Summer A and I regret it fully. I must have missed this page prior to registering because if I would have realized all the negative feedback she gets is true, I wouldn't have bothered trying! This class is ridiculous! 33 questions in 35 minutes and the final is 100 questions in 35 minutes! No HW or anything to boost your grade!

I'm taking the 6 week summer course right now, I've done the first test, and it is HELL! There so SO much work. She gives out study guides but many of the questions are too vague to answer them. Most of the stuff from the long study guides weren't even on the exam! Exams are set up for you can only see 1 question at a time and can't go back. AVOID.

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!
