Dr Irwin's exams are easy as long as you pay attention during her power point lectures and take notes. During review sessions she goes over exactly whats on the test and gives numerous extra credit opportunities. She is approachable and helpful

Soc335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Fun class. Dr. Irwin is sweet and also silly at times. Attendance isn't taken but extra credit assignments are given during class so attend or get them from someone. Final is exact questions from previous exams; mostly cummulative and based from textbook reading. challenging class but you learn if you apply yourself.

Kinda crazy but entertaining prof. Powerpoints and lectures are easy to follow. Don't have to come to lecture but make sure you get the notes from someone and go to the review sessions before the exams. Exams are kind of hard, but that is all you have to do all semester for the class. So study hard for those and you golden

Make sure you go to class because some of the lecture material isn't in the book and ends up on the exams. She is a lot of fun and is really passionate about the subject.

She's a really nice and fun professor! She tries to make everything more enjoyable for everyone. It was a pretty interesting class, but it's not as easy as you'd think. Pay attention in class and some of the book info is really helpful on tests.
