she has 5 major tests(each test has four sections) and one paper, in my class she spent too much time on the greeks so she had to cram 2 major tests within the last month, which included the 5 part final exam. why she does this to her students ill never know, don't torture yourself.

Prof. Smith is a very nice woman but I had straight A's until i took her class. There are about 5 large test and one average size paper. It doesn't seem like a lot of work but it is. she spaces tests too closely together and they are extremely hard. she also puts material on the test that she states would not be on there. dont mess your gpa up.

Worst humanities teacher I've had. She has 4 different sections for a test. Art, multiple choice, fill in the blank, & matching. It sounds easy but that's where all your points come from, never clear w/ direction, not clear what you need to know for tests, she was okay as a person but I will NEVER take a class with her again.

WORST PROFESSOR EVER DONT TAKE HER! Grading system is very unclear. She never tells you how much assignments are worth & doesnt post grades. Dont bother asking for help, she doesnt care. Her tests are beyond ridiculous. Gave midterm out of nowhere with no warning. I got As in all my classes except hers. Save your GPA & pick a different teacher.

Professor Smith is a very nice person, however she doesn't really teach much. Her tests are very hard and cover several chapters. I've read chapters thoroughly multiple times and still came across questions on the test that had no reference whatsoever to what we had learned. If you want to work hard, take her.

The professor is unclear in her grading point system, each test varies in points. She briefly covers over the material. Hand outs for every chapter. Unexpected mid-term. Grades are NEVER available online.

You must LISTEN to her Lectures, she gives Handouts for the lectures, read and study the handouts, she is well versed with sculptures, paintings. You must memorized the PP and will be available in blackboard. Don't take the 7 or 12 week classes, it's a lot of work. She is very understanding with students needs and circumstances.

Does not teach much. Strong focus on student presentations. Tests are ridiculously hard. She does give extra credit, but many questions on the test are not covered in class or in the book. Don't expect to know your grade in her class until the semester is over. She does not post grades.

Ms. Smith is an alright teacher. She only teaches the pictures and main concepts and the rest of the information for the test is up to you to learn. It's annoying and you have to use a lot of out of class time in order to get the rest of the stuff for the test. It's easy if you're a history major and like to read, but if not I don't think this teacher is for you. On the other hand she does a lot of extra credit on the test, but you have to know the answers...

My class never used the book other than the first week of class. I received over an a on every test without studying for most of them. Her notes tell you everything you need to know for her class

Prior to taking her class, I have never failed a single class in my life. She is very nice and sweet and is willing to help you to succeed in her class. However, her tests are very hard. She is good if you are very interested in Art, but if you are not a good test taker and cannot study for hours at a time, then look at other professors instead.

Great teacher! If you like Art, you'll love this class. Learned so much in such a short period of time. Tests are NOT hard if you take notes and study. Occasionally, she might throw something out there she may not have covered in class, but when there's easily 30 extra credit points on every exam, it's dumb to complain. Overall, loved it!!

Tests are incredibly hard... even if you study the handouts she gives you, there will be stuff on the test you never learned. However, she does give a lot of extra credit which will boost your grade tremendously (I always got B's on the tests but ended up with an A). Grades papers way too hard. Overall just a boring, difficult class.

Tests are beyond rediculous. Questions are on things that arent in the book or handouts, very contrived grading system, On art section of the test she puts pics she said she wouldnt, dont Take her if u have a choice. She does give extra cred though

She's very opinionated! You have 3 big speeches at the end.If you do how she wants it, you'll pass! She's easy, but I don't like her attitude.

Nancy is a great teacher...really makes it easy to give speeches. As long as you follow what she says in her guidelines and do a good job with your speeches its an easy A or B. Would def. recommend her to anyone!

Awesome professor! I was not looking forward to my speeches, but found it wasn't that difficult. Energetic teacher and has a great sense of humor if you are paying attention. Attend class regularly, take notes of what she expects, and follow her instructions and you will be just fine. I earned an A by simply following her instructions.

Excellent professor! No assignments throughout the course, except for one essay, which is very straightforward. Tests are ridiculously difficult, but if you pay attention in class and read the handouts she provides, you should be fine. Overall, excellent professor, and I would definitely take her again.
