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..

She assigns ridiculous amounts of reading and her power points contain useless info and many typos. Overal the class was easy, just extremely boring. Her tests suck because she finds the least covered tiny details and puts several questions about it on the test. Also many times the question has more than one correct answer, but you can only pick 1.

Prof Rabe-Hemp was interesting and sassy, with sarcasm thrown in there too. Many valuable experiences and a lot of valuable knowledge to share, the best part about her as a professor. The powerpoints are kind of useless, she doesn't put too much info on them. Tests are pretty difficult, plan on reading a lot. Go to Study Blue for study guides!!

I really had no interest in taking this class, but I actually really enjoyed it and learned a lot. However, there is so much reading it is ridiculous, and the tests are pretty difficult. Just a warning, if you end the class with an 89.5% she will not round it (happened to me).

Rabe Hemp is a decent professor. She kind of thinks that she "knows it all", which gets annoying. Writing assignments once a week that you will get full points for if you make sense. Study guide for tests are somewhat broad, but it helps you learn the material. Tests were kind of difficut, but not impossible if you study.

The class isn't that bad. She switched to weekly writing assignments this year and as long as you write something that makes sense, she will give you the points for them. Only 10/12 writing assignments count and the other 2 are EC. Also gave EC for attendance a few times. Just make sure to study for the 3 exams. No final. Take her if you can!

Before taking her class, I knew nothing of the Criminal Justice System. Though she assigns a lot of reading, it is best to just do it when it is assigned and take good notes. Whatever she puts on the study guide is what will be on the exams. Her writing assignments are pretty easy too! She really is an awesome professor!

Do NOT take this class. She's really tough and has you do A LOT of reading. She jumped right into the book without any explanation and she does not explain the readings. The readings are long boring and very confusing. There is a writing assignment every week and it's worth 100 points total. do not take this class it's very stressful.

I really enjoyed taking this class! Rabe-Hemp is a great professor. She really has a passion for the material and it shows. She is very clear on her expectations. A quiz on the reading once a week. Make sure you read! And a few tests covering the material read too. Attending class is necessary also. Strict but I got an A! It just takes some work.

I read every assigment and still couldn't get a perfect score on her weekly quizzes. She says she wants you to understand key points but then contradicts herself by asking nitty gritty stuff. Exams suck. Also, I was less than 5 points from an A and she would NOT round up. Take politics! Im sure its easier and there isnt nearly as much reading
