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.

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

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

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

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.

CIS 105 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

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

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.

She will not help you, and if you question her, she will do everything to prove you wrong. Great class, useless professor.

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

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.

Took the online excel class and thought it was very helpful. Learned a ton of excel which is helpful for a business major. 2 assignments every week. Tests are really easy. A little effort and you get an A

Don't ever take it with her. Its called web design & development, ended up writing HTML and CSS and Java. I'm an intro student, not even CIS major. She NEVER answers questions/ emails. HORRIBLE professor. Course itself could be easy at times. Exams are 27 questions, quite tricky. If you can deal with a professor not answering email, then go for it.

The class was a 100 level but was incredibly difficult! There was no way to study for the Simnet tests. There were a lot of technical issues and I really didn't learn anything. She always responded to my emails and acknowledged the class was experiencing issues. It wasn't a good class.

CPS 105 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Literally one of the hardest classes I've ever taken. She has so many mini assignments that have 30+ tasks to do in each one. I ended up getting a C+ in the class even though I had enough points to get me a B. She's not very friendly either. STAY AWAY FROM HER ONLINE COURSE

Can't say much about the professor but the course didn't teach me much. Make sure to write down the simnet steps, assignments disappear after the deadline & you won't be able to review it for the exam. For the module exams you have to read the book and understand it.Weird questions but I guess it's easier online as you can use your notes for exams.

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

This class consists of 8 weeks of excel lectures and 8 weeks of vba lectures, with an excel project that you come up with at the end. There is also a midterm and a final. The lectures walk you through all the assignments and all the answers to questions can be found by googling it. If you have any experience with coding this is an easy A.
