"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "Tough Grader"

Class is complete busy work, class average on the first test was an F and she still wouldn't curve it. Instead complained that students aren't reading enough. Very opinionated and one sided, would never take another class with her EVER again.

"Assignments galore"

Class is all busy work she claimed on the first day the class wasn''t. Would not ever take a class with her again. Nothing beneficial was learned.

Teacher that's interested in her students. It's not a difficult class, however, it is a high time commitment compared to your typical class. The work's not hard, but there is simply a lot of work.

She is awful! Very little direction given and tons of busy work. If you can teach yourself, you'll be fine, if not, run for the hills. She also refuses to work with student with special circumstances as far as class attendance goes.

class is all busy work. there is a mid term and final. at the beginning of the class we were told students with an A or B going into the last week would not have to take the final, but she changed it to only people with A's... needless to say she was very unclear with her directions. very boring, but if you attend you will do fine

I took a different business law class at my last college that didn't transfer here, and I loved it. This course was terrible. As all the other comments say this prof gives a lot of busy work but nothing interesting, and her lectures are boring and honestly stupid. I liked my old blaw profs stories about law and cases, here she's just ridiculus

If you like classes with no instruction for all assignments and a ton of busy work for the class and a teacher who was fired from being a lawyer as your law teacher this class is for you. If your not looking for a hard class go find another teacher. lolz.

Terrible Teacher! This class has nothing to do with the real world. I didn't learn a thing! She gives busy work every class that is pointless! Complete waste of time and money.

She gives a ton of busy work. It is all easy, but very redundant. She gives the same type of assignments all semester. Never any tests. You have to attend pretty much every class because she has in class activities. Used the book very little.

One of the worst teachers i've ever had. Gives pointless assignments as busy work thinking they help, quizes are weekly, doesn't respond to questions clearly and hardly answers the questions. Homework is unclear and almost daily. Only teachers required classes because students won't take an elective with her. DONT TAKE!

Penny is a little crazy and feels the need to refer to the class as "GANG" all the time. She does assign alot of busy work but if you have a decent group you will do just fine in the class.

This teacher is absolutely worthless. Too many group projects. It's as if she expects 5 hours of homework per hour in class. Quizzes are given before the chapter is discussed in class. I am a straight A student and am expecting a B+ if I'm lucky. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

A lot of busy work. If you miss class she will let you know and there is a lot of writing but it is a easy A quizzes she lets you use the book but there are some trick questions in it and the class is all about group projects if you dont like a lot of busy work dont take this class but if you dont mind doing homework almost every night take her!

She is slighty nuts. We had lots of tedious group projects. Overall, the only thing I really learned was from a project that I chose the topic of and I did all the research for. If you want to learn something, don't take this teacher!
