"Lectures are long"

She's a pretty boring teacher, her lectures are long and pretty painful some days. The class is pretty easy but you have to pay attention to do really well, and that can be a struggle sometimes. She's not the worst teacher you could get, but definitely not the best.

"Lectures are long" "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

I had this class on weds from 5:30-7:30, so you can imagine it's dreadful. She has a monotone voice and it makes the presentation of the material very boring. However, she describes things very clearly and I find her class to be quite easy. I'd take her again maybe MWF's? Overall, good teacher & decent tests. I've never got below a B.

Sit at the front of the class. She does random attendance (mostly on Fridays) so it's helpful to actually go. Minimal studying and attendance is an easy A. I never even purchased the text book. She posts all the notes online.

Go to every class, and write down everything she says when she goes over the powerpoint slides. If you study your notes, you will be fine. Made high As on all tests. Gives extra credit. Takes random attendance for a grade. Go to class, and it will be easy.

She mumbles like crazy and is strict about excused absences. She makes you pick one time to make up an assignment even if you have note. I finished with a 79.4 and she wouldn't bump me up. I hope I never to take her again.

Hands down one of the most dreadful classes I've had.. Don't take if you plan on skipping class(ever) because she does random attendance/assignments. Quizzes and tests aren't too terrible but you MUST go to class, write down every word she says, and STUDY. Very monotone and hard to pay attention to... Scraped by with an A.. Would not recommend.

VERY easy class. The only problem is she gives random attendance so it's good to go to class. Extra credit for attendance and different events around campus. The test are straight from the notes, which she actually provides for you. Great teacher. I would definitely recommend her.

Unlike many of the students who posted, I think she is a wonderful instructor and person! If you sit up front, you could understand her better instead of hearing mumbling. She is very sweet and helpful, and she's very knowledgeable about her studies!

BORING! You can hardly understand her because of the mumbling. Frustrating because of that. I did not enjoy the class itself, but I did learn a good bit. If you have taken Psychology 1101 then this is a complete repeat of that course. This class is very easy.I made an A in the class and did not open the textbook even once! EASY COURSE..BAD TEACHER!

Very boring class. Random attendance and gives random assignments worth 3-5 points in class. Quizzes are very difficult, but the tests are moderately difficult. Very soft-spoken and monotone. Hard to pay attention and listen to. If you take notes and do the study guides, you should make an A, you just won't have very much fun in in the procces

I wouldn't recommend this class. There arent many tough assignments. She does random attendance and her only 3 exams are tougher than they should be. She has little interest in her subject, making the lecture very boring. She isn't helpful in her office hours and doesn't strive for clarity in class. Don't expect your grade to reflect your effort.

She's really nice and very helpful. Gave a few short quizzes and 3 tests but she gives plenty of notice as well as study guides. No real hw assignments but as long as you're willing put in time to study for tests you should be fine and be able to get an A or high B. I'd recommend her.

Dr. Flanigan's class was cool. She was really nice, and she knows what she is talking about. She gave a lot of extra credit opportunities and she only gave 4 quizzes and 3 tests. My only problem is that she literally talked to the last second.

She is soooo boring. She talks way too fast & in a monotone. Takes the time to make a powerpoint but only puts the subtitles on the slides. The only way I learn is by reading the book on my own.

Though the class was easy, it was very hard to pay attention because she was so boring. She is extremely monotone, but she does try to make the class interesting. Go to class because she does do discussions in class that are worth grades and she also gives extra credit.

She is the MOST boring teacher, ever. She speaks in the same old voice the whole entire class. The class could be interesting but it is my worst class. She gives pop quizzes and her test are impossible. She's nice but that doesn't affect your GPA. i WOULD NOT recommend her. :)

She doesn't know what she is talking about. She reads straight from her notes and can't explain what she reads. Tests are difficult, and she always has some sort of assignment due. She is nice though.
