HSC 1531 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took the 8 week course online. Pro.Jost gives a test review for midterm and final you look up answers on your own, this only covers 60% of exam. Expect a lack of communication and late grading.

Med Term online. Easy course. Prof Jost is completely hands off. She does not respond to phone calls or email. Takes several weeks to grade assignments.

HSC1524 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Jost is awesome. This is a difficult class, but it's not hard if you apply yourself and do the work. My only criticism is that this could really be an online class. You come to class, open blackboard on projector, read powerpoint from blackboard verbatim, go home. North campus isn't the most conveniently located.

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

Mrs. Self proclaimed medical terminology wizard needs to attend a course on common courtesy.. She comes off as arrogant and will not return emails/phone calls. I think she even makes up some of the acronyms used... If you are already pretty fluent in med term and need a somewhat easy class, then take this class, if not look elsewhere.

mcb2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

In order to be successful you have to be able to do the work on your own. Her test material come from all over the place and are unpredictable. Her study guides are useless because she do not test what is on them. She is hard to get a hold of and never returns calls or emails. Hybrid course tests are in testing center outside of classtime.

MCB2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class was absolutely horrible. Took her over the summer as a hybrid class. No one could ever get ahold of her...not even our lab teacher. When the tests were actually graded, they were graded by her assistant and graded incorrectly. Im still waiting on my final grade to be posted..which was due yesterday by noon.

bsc2085 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is usless if you are trying to learn. She is very smart i giver her that, but as a teacher useless. Her lectures were nothing to do with the test MOST of the time, the notes she handed out were very confusing and useless, you NEVER knew what was going to be on the test. basically she just is not "teacher" material.

Very frustrating teacher. Had a hybrid with her, and she doesn't respond to e-mail, no phone calls back. We only got our grades after Ms. Thompson got on to her for not grading tests. Not sure what it is she's doing behind the scenes-- but she needs to use better time management, or work less teaching. Avoid her. Ms. Thompson rocks!

I would not take her again. She taught the online portion for the hybrid class, but not the lab. This makes it difficult because it's like 2 different classes! She never responds to emails and doesnt answer her phone. You never know what is going to be on the test, so you have to study everything since you cannot get ahold of her to find out.

MCB2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a hybrid class, she will e-mail you within 2 days of you sending it.Tests are multiply choice and given at the beginning of class and then you will take the lab quiz. The reference materials are too numberous making it difficult to gauge what might be on the test. Absorb as much as you can or be sorry on test day.

APSECT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a very interesting teacher, a little on the nutty side buy very inteligent. She has a habit of geting off subject, but she grades and test fairly. Expect alot of reading and homework time to get an A in her class though.

I made an A in the class but I had some med. term. experience before I took this class. She is a good teacher, she give practice tests which are similar to the mid-term and final, but there is alot of memorization, so if you DO NOT like to study don't take this course!

BSC2086C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very understanding, helpful and eager to teach. Many classes (5-6) were cancelled this term due to various issues - getting both her programs re-accredited and an unfortunate situation with her loved one. No big deal - READ your chapters and you'll be fine. She simplifies everything. If you can't pass this class, you won't pass anyone else's.
