ETHN 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Don't take it. This class was super hard her lecture and notes didn't help on the test. If you have to take it. I recommend doing all the extra credit you can and attend class. Lectures are boring and dumb but attendance counts and study out of the book.

Terrible professor. Forces her beliefs on students and has no interest in any opinion besides her own. Tests are absolutely irrelevant to any content learned in class. Class time is nothing but an hour long rant..

ETHN100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Went into the class thinking it would be an esay A. I was wrong. Her lectures are incredible difficult to follow and the tests are basically what she beileves should be the right answer, not what you read in the book... which is what she tells you to study. She doesn't answer questions, uou have to talk to the GA's if you want to know anything

She is such an awesome professor! Professor Phan does talk a bit too much at times and can get off topic, but if you listen well, she always come back to what she stated first. Listen to her well and maybe you might learn something new. I think she is one of the best staff on this campus! Smart, intelligent, & willing to help.

This professor is horrible. She gets off topic with the same personal stories, she hates on white people, she has her TA do EVERYTHING, she doesn't tell you what will be on the test, she freaks out when the class does bad, and worst of all- she complains that this is the first class that's had a problem with her teaching techniques. AVOID HER.

Very passionate but not very good at hitting the points. uses outdated movies and blamed the class when the highest grade on a test was 31 out of 40. needs to teach more facts and less her opinion. The wording of the tests can also be difficult to decipher at time. Find another professor is what i recommend

She keeps going off on pointless tangents, and it's near-impossible to figure out what is going to be on the test. Half the things I took notes on and studied didn't show up on it. It'd have been helpful if she spent less time on rants and more time telling us what would be important to study.

Ethn101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this professor! She is very entertaining and her teaching is more experience based. Although focus on the book for tests. She cares and really wants you to be involved and you get to argue what you want for a grade! Lots of extra credit! Come to class and you should have no problem with the tests.

ETHN100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I think she needs to teach more on a regular teaching method. She is very scatter-brained. Take notes, do all the extra credit and read the book a little and you will prob get a c. She is the weirdest teacher I have ever met. The tests are hard, but really there is nothing you can do about it.

As a person she is nice, but nice doesnt cut it. I am here to learn, but instead I waste my time in her class. She a horrible horrible teacher. She doesnt even teach the class, she talks randoms stuff. She doesnt even talk about the book, its a waste to even buy the book. Her exam are so stupid too, she test you on things she doesnt even teach you.

This prof is very straight foward and can be rude sometimes. The tests are difficult, I remember people getting low scores. You can do extra credit to help. If possible I would definitely find a different prof.

I just read other comments & I can't believe there is one overall positive comment about Professor Phan. I don't think she is a bad person, & occasionalyy she is funny/witty, but whatever you do, don't take this class!! I even learned some interesting things but it's not worth it to have to listen to her everyday and deal with her sass. Terrible!

Putting aside personality differences (& the fact that she is rude/condescending)this proffessor is unfit to be teaching class at a college level. She is completely unorganized, doesn't follow any type of flow in lecture & is hard to understand. I am a good student, did all the reading/xtra credit/studied the notes-but barely eeked by with an A-.

She honestly is hard to understand and is kind of frustrating. She doesn't give good notes at all. Skips from one thing to another and doesnt give you time to write it down. Tests are hard, nothing is really from the book, mostly about dates and such. Lots and lots of extra credit :). Not too helpful at times. Don't recommend her!

Wonderful professor, she really knows her stuff and she was voted Best Professor of the entire college several years in a row. The other people that rated her poorly are too stupid to appreciate her intellect and humor.
