CJS 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Reading every week for at least 2 hr plus 10 ? Quiz every week. Took a lot of time out of the week especially when not interested in topic. Tests were easy if you knew the study guide she handed out. Did not enjoy this class due to reading and quizzes every week.

Take Rabe-Hemp! she is such a sweet heart, she genuinely cares to get to know her students and she's a great professor. the first two tests were pretty tough because I never read, but the final was a breeze because the book we read was actually interesting! I recommend her 100%!!

Great professor, knew her stuff and made class interesting to go to. You need to buy the books because there are 10 point quizzes every week on the material required to read for that day. Frustrating because I was one point away from an A with a 89.75% but she will not round up even if asked, so don't try. Overall a good course I would recommend.

I would suggest reading for this class. Those 10 point quizzes will really make or break your grade. Also, do the readings and ask for help. The readings can get confusing sometimes.

Overall, this class is OK. She assigns a ridiculous amount of reading, and has a 10 point quiz every thursday over all the readings and in class notes. Spends the first 40 minutes of class talking about current events which is always a waste of time. However, if you go to class and do the readings, it shouldn't be too hard of a class.

Really good professor but only has 400 points for whole semester 3 tests, and ten 10 point quizzes. Do not mess around with the quizzes, they are over a lot of reading and usually a website. However, she only tests over what she puts on the study guide, if you complete those, tests are easy.

There is either a quiz or a writing assignment every week. Lots of readings. But if you do read everything, you'll probably be guaranteed an A. I rarely read right now and I'm still getting a B. You also do current events every day.. which take up like 30 minutes of class..
