CIS 105 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-
"Assignments galore"

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. Seriously, I know most people think that reviews like these mean just the one person had a bad time with a teacher, but EVERYBODY hated her. Assignments are scattered in 3 different places, you have to search for due dates, Excel files won't open on Mac and she doesn't care, and she won't help you fix the problem.

"Lectures are long" "Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

Took this class online as my first online class. I would suggest that everyone take the class in person. You get so much more out of it. The online course moves very quickly with two or three lessons due per week. Each lesson takes several hours to complete. If you're an online class master then you should be fine, if not then stay away.

A Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The 1st half of course is easy. 2nd part is all VBA and this is where her direction sucks. Essay questions in an excel exam? - you bet; this coupled with no rubric for your project leads to subjective grading. When you do ask for help, she repeats herself. Very frustrating. Good thing is grading is weighted in your favor.

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

Since it was an 'A' session course, there was a lot of work crammed into the few weeks you have. I was basically doing assignments every other day. The tests are really hard. You need to be computer savvy. The positive was you could work ahead of the class if you preferred.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

The online class is riddled with glitches that seriously hurt your grades. Overall, the course was manageable and I feel like I learned a lot. I like that you could basically work at your own pace, including working ahead if you needed to.

CIS 308 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Apparently could care less when students provide feedback. Exam questions are stupidly vague. Much material is basically recycled from CIS 105. Easy A, but would avoid taking any of her classes if I could.

Class is very simple, just make sure to submit the assignments before the deadline and read the notes posted before doing the test and you'll get an A.

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Would take again"

THis professor was by far the worst I have had for computer science and the pace was staggering to me.. the amount of classwork that she expected completed was hilarious not to mention the methods used to make excel formulas. Super retarded. would never take another course through her again. EVER.

"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Do NOT take this class online with her, the way her grading is set up it MAKES NO SENSE!!! Dont even bother emailing her with a question because she'll just tell you to look at the syllabus and wont help you at all! ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!!

"Tough Grader"

Course material was probably easy, but don't bother taking the practice tests if you already know the material, they don't end up being counted into your final grade, although it will look like it will, I found out the hard way. Didn't seem to get much help when I asked questions regarding difficulty in lessons and had no explanation about my grade

"Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback" "Would take again"

I took this class online and I've taken 3 computer classes before but somehow none of them transferred. If you know how to use Excel and Access it's a piece of cake. Just do the MyEducator lessons and a reading exam every couple weeks. I found it to be pretty easy.

FIN300 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She handles an excel assignment portion of FIN300 and I really wish she didn't. Her instructions and videos are hard to follow and she is very unpleasant. She gives NO feedback on grades. I emailed her a few times and she was very rude. Having her handle a small portion of this course would make me STAY AWAY from her other classes.

Honestly the class was fine despite what others have said. The simnet test are replaced with another program. The professor has obviously improved the class and is continuing to do so. I've never taken a class like this before and I thought it was more tedious then it was difficult. Do the work and you'll be fine!:)

CIS394 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS! She is not helpful at all, I emailed her a question and she basically told me to google it. Lectures are painful to listen to and are not informative on what we are supposed to do. There is also a ridiculous amount of assignments due. Could have been a great class... but this terrible teacher ruined it.

CIS 300 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Her lectures are old, and many of the techniques she uses are out-dated. She is very unresponsive to e-mail, or criticism. Her guidelines are not very clear and she is a very nit-picky grader. If you need the class, take it, otherwise, I would avoid her.

Re-uses old video lectures and files with errors. Tests have essay questions (FOR EXCEL?!?), so prepare for out of place subjective grading. Slow and not detailed when answering questions, luckily most of the issues can be solved by searching online (some by searching HW questions verbatim). This class is a necessary evil.

Poor professor, does not care about students learning. Her lessons are poorly planned and all over the place. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS. Worst ASU experience, she is a joke of a professor.

Easy credit for graduation but really frustrating. She's EXTRMELY unhelpful - there are ALWAYS errors in the spreadsheets she gives you, she can't answer simple questions. I had an issue with a VLookup and her response was "If I make the negative # a positive it works" Nothing to do with the function. You'll have to teach yourself VBA.
