Great Professor. Prepared. Fun Lectures because of her funny comments. If you do your homework and show up you will do fine in the class. Easy to talk to. Professional. I would recommend taking her if you want to learn something. I would take her again in another class.

Rooney is a great professor. Really learned a lot. The best part was the speed reading project that I found out was mandatory on he first day of class. Seemed like a huge load of work but leveled off. I use what I learned in ALL my other classes.

I loved Mrs. Rooney's speed reading class, it was sooo helpful. I used to get B's and C's in my classes, but now I get all A's! The speed reading program is very beneficial and I would totally recommend this class for anyone serious about being or becoming a good college student.

This class was extremely helpful! I will be transferring to a 4 year college next semester and I feel very confident about using the skills taught in this class. I know that if I hadn't taken this course, and the co-req ENGRD 314, I would not be prepared to transfer. It's aslo plainly stated in the course description that this class has a co-req

ENGRD310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She gives a lot of busy work. Not very much critical thinking involved. Mandatory extra class to pass. Had less then 1/3 of the class left. She is not consistent with post and deadlines. Information is never in the same place. If you do not need the class, I would suggest taking something that would be a better use of your time.

Do not take her online class! You will end up working just for her class. She asignes a lot of homework. Other than that is helpfull, but boring. Her assignments are extra tough!

Rooney was a great teacher! I would take her again. Instructions on some assignments can be unclear at times. But for the most part she's funny and has a great sense of humor. Assignments were fun. I learned a lot.

She is very tough on grading. Gives very hard tests. Doesn't believe in extra credit. Takes points off if you miss a class or even if you are tardy. You have to work REALLY hard to get a good grade in her class. You get a lot of homework and you better have it ALL PERFECT otherwise you loose points.

rooney is very unprofessional when dealing with students, due to the fact that she gets very emotional when students question her or have a differing oppinion then hers. she does not follow the syllabus that she gives to the students in the begining of the semester, also.

Shes a great teacher...very very tough on grading and she doesnt do any easy tests either. You have to know your stuff if you want to pass her class. She gives a lot of homework but you get alot out of it and it is well worth it.

Very picky, but well worth it. She'll work to help you improve your study skills dramatically. I started the semester with 2 B's and 2 C's, but ended up with all A's because of RAD with Rooney. I Strongly recommend to those who want to help themselves.
