Great teacher who really wants to prepare her students for the future and cares about their success. This class requires a lot of reading from the text book.

Dr. Wilkins is very demanding and challenges her students. Ultimately this prepares you for your future in law enforcement. Work hard in her class, and study hard to EARN a good grade. She is a lot of fun. Get to know her and you will love her.

Dr. Wilkins' classes are very difficult but will prepare you for your future. She expects the best out of every student and if you can't deliver she will let you know. I respect her very much and believe she brings the best out of everyone and will challenge you. Great teacher and person!!

Dr. Wilkins is a tough professor but is definitely one of the best. She knows her stuff. Must read and study everyday before you go to her class, because the quizes are pretty hard, the exams are just as hard. Cant skip more than a few days. But she definitely keeps class entertaining, pretty crazy/cool woman. Just do your work.

I took a few of her classes years back and did not appreciate her classes until recent. I went through a police academy in AZ and it really helped me prepare for the tests by having her classes in college. Great teacher and is fun!!

What a fun lady. I would have liked to have scored higher on her tests and quizzes, but man, it was sure nice to sit down and hear some of her comical relief at the end of a long day. I'd even have a drink with her. Remember to read the book!

Dr.Wilkins makes her expectations of her students very clear and does not deviate from them. She wants her students to do more then just commit bits of information to short-term memory for tests, instead she wants students to fully understand the core concepts of the class. If you read the book and show up to class then you should expect to pass.

Wilkins is interesting to listen to in class. Her lectures are worth attending the class. Her tests however are extremely hard. She is EXTREMELY detail oriented, which for this class I felt defeated the purpose about teaching about diversity.. If you want to work and study hard take this class. NOT for the slacker or even medicore slacker at that.

Great teacher I really learned a lot from Dr. Wilkins but her tests are fairly hard. If you study and know what she wants you to know you should be alright. You really do learn a lot in this class

She tells you what you need to know for the test; but grades on grammar, spelling, and being exact. Memorize what she wants you to know.

Ive been a cop for 4 years in Atlanta now. Tammy is the best teacher I ever had. To the guy who says she shouldnt be teaching because she has never been a cop, why dont you just sit back abd listen to her, she has more life experience than most the cops I know and gives a differant perspective on things. Great teacher!

Despite a hair style from the 1970's Tammy is awesome. Don't call her Tammy though, Dr. Wilkins. She knows more about Law Enforcement than anyone at MSU. Keep her in your corner and you'll excell.

She's a tough prof and it is necessary to read the books. She reviews for the tests, so you know what is coming. She's picky about spelling/grammar... but otherwise I really like her and enjoy her classes.

Wants the best for her students. Tough grader, but expectations are high as they should be. Read the book, study lots, and go to class and you can make a decent grade.

WILKINS IS AN EXCELLENT TEACHER. SHES A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHAT A PROF. SHOULD BE. SHE IS TOUGH AND MEAN IN INTRO, BUT DOES IT TO WEED OUT THE PEOPLE WHO REALLY ARENT SET FOR L.E. AFTER TAKING HER IN UPPER LEVEL CLASSES SHES A GREAT PROF. AS LONG AS YOU READ AND STUDY A DECENT AMOUNT, YOU WILL DO JUST FINE. SOMETIMES GO OFF ON RANDOM RANTS

Tami is a tough prof, all her tests are hard in any class. She does spell out the test so they are easy to study for. With a little effort and an open mind good grades are possible. Luck might help too....
