Excel for Acct Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

Ms Valdivia expectation from her students is high but she is dedicated and definitely cares if you learn or not. If you are lazy, looking for easy A, and you feel you are entitled to all.. do not take this class but if you put hard work and actually willing to learn, she is a good professor

CIS 01 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

The worst teacher I ever encountered in SMC and I completed 2 AA’s in this school. Makes lots of mistakes in grading, contradicts herself and she is vindictive. Try to complain and she will come after you. Any other teacher is better than this disaster. The worst experience ever.

AACTG35 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Frequently throughout the semester she would issue exams without grading the relevant homework assignments. Feedback was lackluster and it was more efficient to perform a simple google search for answers on the material. She is an overall nice person and not evil as depicted in previous reviews. English and organizational skills need improvement.

Acct31B Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

VERY hard to understand the instructions for class especially if you did NOT take ACT31A. Don't ask questions after you are graded. She will find more things wrong to reduce your grade. Her eaxpectations for Comma and Dollar formatting is impossible to understand. Expects formatting to be different from book. She does not provide good example.

Acctg 31A Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Valdivia is absolutely horrible, avoid at all costs. Does not return homework and assignments until the end of the semester, so you never get to learn form your mistakes until its too late. Expects perfect formatting, yet her own instructions and organizational skills are the lowest ive ever encountered at smc.

Acct31AB Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took 31A and B online. I think the content was easy if you do the work. Yes, she is a stickler for details. Which is ironic given that her instructions and explanations are often full of errors. She talks about "professional" documents but her work is full of errors, excess formatting,and confusing instructions. Not very clear.

BUS17 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Class started out confusing because instructor did not seem to have materials prepared. The syllabus was confusing with incorrect dates and materials listed. But once that is clarified, the class was pretty easy. Read the textbook and do your work and you can get an A. She is a stickler for formats so make sure you follow instructions to the T.

CIS30 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online for summer! From the beginning you have to be very attentive! It is definitely not an easy class, since it requires following instructions from the textbook and building on from them. I barely recieved a B, but learned a lot! She will grade depending on you, and will help as long as you communicate and is eager to learn

This is my third online class and first time with Prof. Valdivia. I must say this is the most i have learned in or out of a classroom. She is a bit tough but good teacher.

Excel1047 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a demanding instructor but reasonable. We get so use to lazy teachers that when we get one that actually has expectations from her students, we think there is something odd. Hey.. lets start earing our grades!
