SOCI101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her class was very interesting. Class participation is key. Final and midterm is based on the slides she presents in class and have little to do with the readings she hands out. Not a lot during the semester other than reading,but don't get behind on the book review and 15 page paper/project. She's also known to move deadlines if enough people ask.

Work wise, there's really not a lot, so if you have a heavy course load, she's an easy addition. The class is mainly discussion based. Participate and you'll be fine. She's strictly multiple choice for exams and we've had one 6 page paper, and a 15 page group research paper

One of my favorite professors. Super nice, class was really easy. Midterm and final exam are multiple choice, not that diffficult if you study. Only one book to read with a 6 page summary and one 10 page group research paper. Class was interesting, would take her again

Suarvana is a very nice women. She wants her students to do well overall. The tests can be a little difficult, but all of the material is on the study guide/in your notes. I was out of class for 4 weeks and she gave me so much extra time to make everything up. She was so understanding. Plus there's no final, just group paper :)

she is extremely unorganized and you learn very little in this class. she spends half the time treating you like you are children and the other half being a ridiculously hard grader. tests are hard and bring down your grade tremendously. wouldn't take her again.

Actually participation counts for very little in her class.(1/15 of a test to be exact) Incredibly helpful but understand her tests count for ALOT! Not to mention the are difficult. Just do work and you will do alright.

Dr. Cherukuri is tough but good; took crunch class which was hard. If you do work and participate in class you'll be fine; tests are hard but directly from handouts. Interesting insights-very helpful and always available.

She throws a lot of information at you at once, but doesn't go through the information in detail. Her way of teaching is reading one scentance of the slide and skipping to the next. Be prepared to talk a lot, even if you sound stupid, as long as you talk she's happy.

Such an easy class and teacher. As long as you do the readings and pay attention in class, there's no way you can do poorly in this class. She never gives homework and always tries to keep the class interesting

this class is so easy. there is not way people should not get an A it is a lower level Sociology class were here first words to the class and so far I have an A. Her tests are right off of the powerpoint slides and she gives out a review sheet. I would def. take this class if I had to do it again
