I took the online lab course and I must say she is one of the worst online professors I have ever had. She is EXTREMELY unclear with the assignments and most of them make no sense or are completely pointless. The directions are vague and treats this class as if it were 4 units. Her grading is unpredictable and gives little feedback. AVOID HER

Great person and personality but horrible professor. Her lectures are very unclear and if you ask her a question to clarify you end up more confused. When she talks about what she wants on research papers in class you MUST double check her prompts online because it is always different. Only take if you are confident in anthropology.

I'm currently taking her class fr the Fall Semester and have to say, she's one of the best professors at PCC. University level class and she's a great lecturer which is always a plus. She expects you to keep up with studying and class work, but really there's no excuse to slack off.

Try not to take this professor, her clarity level is beyond incomprehensible. She gives you a broad outline of what to do. I put in effort for responses to her questions and yet she pins it down as if there was a structured outline/guideline on how to answer everything. Very b-word/rude/picky professor that doesn't clarify anything. Total waste.

Listen to lectures,practice tests,review handouts- all are test material. Must know college level composition for research paper! She's tough when grading because she expects students to show they understood the material. She gives extra credit that really helps those who need it.

Probably one of the easiest lab classes, every week you write a one page paper. Sometimes confusing and she can grade hard. You need to put in the time for this class, I got an A but it was not easy. Honestly, you really need 5 hours or less a week for this class. Some assignments are easier than others, some are pointless. You will learn nothing

Her test questions are very confusing, but the questions do not really get into the material specifics, just general questions. Some of the answers to her questions are bizarre.

Talks too fast and her tests are very difficult. She tests you from 3 different books which you have to virtually memorize to do well. Lectures are long and hard to understand because she inundates you with info.

Very, Very easy class...almost too easy. She is very nice, helpful, clear lectures. Her class is fun too. It is easy to pass, even with light studying. I honestly wish the course had been more of a challenge, it didn't feel like it was college level.

Very easy going, wonderful personality and clear on all subjects. Her classes are interesting and she tells many stories to make you feel connected and encouraged to learn more - just approach her for questions, you'll get good answers. She cares.

Lauren is a very-helpful teacher. She is also a good teacher. Whenever you need a help, she will be available to help you (in class, in her office, or via e-mail).

She's easy but you'll only get a good grade if she likes your name. She talks about certain names she likes on the 1st day of instruction. If your name isn't amongst her fav, don't expect to get an A unless you do some work!
