BUSE 119 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a nice semi-self paced class. The prof interacts very little with you and expects you to get the work done on your own. She isn't very easy to get a hold of though. It took 2 weeks for her to respond to my email, and at that point it was too late. I took it online and I'd recommend it for those that are able to stay on top of their work.

MKTG 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Such a waste of time. I learned nothing. Claims that attendance is man. but literally reads you the PP which is on BB. Never went to class b/c everything is due on BB. Why come to class when the teacher puts in no effort to actually teach.

BUSE140 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I chose to take class with her because of her ratings on RMP and I was mistaken. She is unclear on assign. instructions and will deduct points if not followed. Assign. have very low point value so if you miss 1 point you might have failed that assign. Responds to emails extremely late, usually to answer your question after assignment due. AVOID!

BUS140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's AWFUL. Attendance is mandatory, but useless because she doesn't cover anything important in class. Besides, she is ALWAYS late. EVERY DAY. Sometimes she is 30+ minutes late. If you read the chapter and take your time on quizes, you'll do fine. Don't try to ask a question, she will just be rude and condescending. Ask your classmates.

BUS140 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I'll just start off by saying WOW. beware of this teacher. very hard grader, quizzes, hw, and trials are very tricky. she emails kind of quick, but her responses are useless and rude. There is a TON of work, you'll have to read the book like a bible. no multiple choice anything, you will have to type out answers. Barely pulled a C,take someone else

bus 119 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Super great class, you will learn and be a better person in the business world after her class, do the homework and pay attention to the syllabus for the schedule; 3 great projects that are worth 25% of the overall grade, they are also great exercises for the real business world. Take this class with Prof Winston, you will love it.

BUS140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Talk about a professor that wants you to succeed! She allowed everyone to make up any assignments they missed the whole semester. You would literally have to be trying to not get a good grade in this class if you receive less than a B. A isn't hard to get as long as you turn in all work and put some effort into the quizzes. Take her.. shes great.

BUSE119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Easy A if you read all the materials and highlight the important information! Also, keep in mind the deadlines to submit work, finish quizzes, and participate in discussion questions. I took this class online and it was pretty straightforward.

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

Winston grows on you as the class progresses.You have to do well on the online quizzes which make up most of the points.The questions are generic and a worded weird so be careful because you can't miss many-but if you do don't worry she gives extra credit and makeup exams for the student who show up to class. Read + outline textbook = A in class.

buse119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

RIDICULOUS teacher. I had been having trouble obtaining course material and emailed her for help. One, she takes almost a week to answer and two, she always seems to come off as superior and rude. Easy A, but horrible difficulty trying to communicate my issues to her.

Buse119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Online Course. 3 weeks left in the semester and she still hasn't graded assignments that were submitted in the beginning of October. She doesn't reply to emails, What on earth does this woman get paid to do? This is a Bus Communications class and she doesn't communicate, no feedback on assignments. Who made her Dept. Head? I'm totally disappointed.

BUSE119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took her for online Business Communications. Waste of time. Doesn't respond to emails, unacceptable waiting time for her to grade assignments. If all you care about is getting an A then by all means take her class. If you want to learn something find someone who cares about teaching take someone else. Business Communications -COMMUNICATE!!!

This is one of those classes that you hate to go to because nothing she talks about in class is on the quizzes. Other than that, smart lady, very fair and wise. LEctures I think are a waste of my time. I'm busy. BUt shes a great teacher, and you will pass above a B if you work adequately.

Dr. Winston's lectures are very entertaining and interesting (always made me laugh)! Learned more real world knowledge in her class then in any other! Tests are online with open book. Lots of extra credit opportunities. Would take any class she teaches!

Bus140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Class is easy but boring. She's very opinionated and if you try to debate with her she ends conversations with "you're not going to win this debate" (she's said it about 3x so far in class). If she's right, she needs to be more clear. She also goes on tangents and bases some issues solely on her opinions. She's limited in that sense.But Easy A.

TAKE THIS ONLINE CLASS! Super easy!!!! There is 1 assignment each week, which is EASY... there are a few discussion board topics worth 1.5 points each and 3 assignments worth 5 points each... THAT IS IT! So glad I took this class... because it was an easy A... JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO THE ASSIGNMENTS ON TIME! :)

BUSE140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely easy class. Prof Winston is great. Has a good sense of humor, some interesting stories to tell, and shows very interesting '60 Minutes' clips. This class seemed more like general law than business law, but that's the text book. Just simple weekly quizzes and some case studies w/ a presentation at the end. Good class. Would recommend.

BUSE140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely easy to get an A, but not very good if you want to learn or be challenged. She wastes large amounts of time every class going off on tangents. She rarely gets through he material each class because of that. All the quizzes are take-home, though, so if you just want to bump up your GPA then sign up and get your free A.
