ANTH111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

You really had to attend the lectures if you wanted to do well in this class. She does know what she is talking about, but her notes can be confusing sometimes. She tests a lot on the stories she tells in class, but if you go you should do well. Also she has quizzes that can really boost your mark!

ANTH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Enthusiastic prof. Loves to encourage class discussion and learn about each student. Her slides are quick and all over the place, but even if you don't get the info it's always in the book. Exams are heavy on the textbook and what is discussed in class. You can do exceptionally if you attend class and read the textbook thoroughly.

ANTH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I wish people would stop complaining about her! Ii found her to be really intersting and helpful. Yes she does put people on the spot but she's not mean if they get something wrong. Her notes aren't the best but her quizzes are easy and if you read the textbook and take notes from what she says in the lectures you WILL get an A!

ANTH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Stop complaining about Brenda, she is very knowledgeable in her field. People..stop whining about no easy A, you HAVE to go to the lectures. She is easily approachable and accommodating to individual needs. She doesn't give good notes. Read the textbook and keep up and she elaborates in class. Not hard at all, but you actually have to try.

ANTH 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoy this prof as a person. Her lectures are always interesting, and she obviously has a vast knowledge and love of the subject. However, I did not find this class as easy as I thought I would. Her questions are very specific, and rely heavily on local topics not covered in the text. Also uses a lot of video in lectures.

anth 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very boring prof, lectures were completely random. Notes were absolutely useless, she is also overly aggressive in making sure you right down the name of pointless books she wants you to read.

anth111.3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Brenda is incredibly knowledgeable in her field of work. Although I do agree she was a bit hard to follow, she got to the main points of an introductory anthropology class. If you went to class, made an effort the class was great, a good thing to do with her is do in depth research of the information she gives you. The topics were fascinating

Anth111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you are generally interested in anthropology, you will be able to tolerate the class. You have to go to all her classes because she takes random questions from topics she briefly touched on and puts them on her exams. You feel stupid if you ask questions and the class runs pretty slowly on most days. You have to work hard to get a high mark.
