Class grade is based on tests, quizzes, & attendance. 10 written & practical exams. 6 quizzes. One test from each section may be dropped. Overall, if you slack off and don't study her lecture notes, and attend lecture, don't expect to get an A. Ask questions! She gives helpful info that will help you on her tests! She's a decent teacher to take.

10 Tests,6 Quizzes,& Lab points=100. Anatomy is a lot of info, so you MUST be willing to put in time as she does put tricky questions on her tests/quizzes. Pros: You can drop 2 tests (100 points each) & 1 quiz (20 points). Few extra credit on tests. Cons: Very confusing on what she is asking on test/Exams are difficult (I studied a lot).

Because Lamkin was an assistant professor, I didn't really have much experience with her. But from what I experienced, she is a seemingly good professor. However, you shouldn't just take my word for it. Take a class with her and see how you like it. I'd be happy to hear how others like the new Honors program being started at Mission next semester.

This class so so so hard. She not help me at all. She think she know everything but don't know nothing. If you know everything why not help people but since you pretend you do why don't you. God Says: The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern...

Dr. Lamkin is super hard. She jumps from first slide to random slides while explaining. Don't take anatomy with 3-4 classes. Requires a lot of reading, understanding and the most important memorizing. If you want an A you should like put A LOT of time studying. Definitely not an easy A. Her labs are extremely hard like her lectures! No extra points

Funny helpful passionate. If you want an easy pass or need a study sheet with everything that will be on the exam, take another professor. Goes through chapters quickly, go to office hours if you need help. Ppl that didnt do well either didnt understand or were just trying to slide through. If u need ur hand held like a baby, Lamkin is not for u.

What? I don't understand where the complaints are coming from. Took her for physiology and anatomy, A in both classes. True she can jump around a bit but she knows her stuff and gives you a really good idea of what will be on her exams. OK, not super easy but most of the people that take her classes are hoping to work in the medical field. Right?

Her powerpoints confused me a lot. She's not the type of teacher that gets straight to the point, she wants you to know EVERY SINGLE detail. She often rants abt irrelavent topics too.. No study guides either which made it difficult to know what was on her exams. I regret taking her!!!!!

I get really good grades, but this class was extremely hard. Her lectures on powerpoint are not clear. She jumps around from slide to slide w/o telling you what chapter she's on. She goes very fast in lecture and it is impossible to take notes. Erases everything after talking about it. Doesn't answer emails for help. Class test avg is in 50's.

Please listen! She is a very hard teacher! Anatomy is suppose to be basic but she is detailed to everything! Her exams are extremely hard and so are her lab exams. You need to dedicate at least 40 hours a week to study for only this class. This is only a basic anatomy class and she teaches like a university advanced anatomy course. Don't take her.

This is the hardest class EVER!!! It's horrible! Lamkins tests are so ridiculously hard!! I studied extremely well and still got D's on the exam and quizzes. She does not teach so that you can understand it. Lectures are so boring! She does not give hints for what will be on the exam. Don't take her if you want an A. You might pass with a C!

Super nice. Offers the MAX amt. of extra credit permited by the dept. Will always try to clarify. Dont miss class, she'll give EX quizes & activities. Get a good study partner or group, you WILL need them since its all mostly memorization. Dislike: She'll put models up for you to memorize but will not go over them. Drops lowest test score. TAKE HER

continue--Professor weakness is that she never go over lab models, and give you 1 or 2 days to cover everything 4 lab test. u have to learn your own way by taking picture of the model and go home study that. Make a good reliable lab partner.The good thing abt professor is that she gave you review whats gonna be on lab and lectue exam, best of luck.

She is not strict on attention for lecturing but lab. You must attend the lab section to get credit. She is funny, clear in lecturing, and helpful. She gives lots of extra credits, so take her to have a good grade. Reasonable time frame to learn and study for the exam, and she gives study guide also. Recommend to take her.

Professor Lamkin is great! She is passionate about the subject and is very helpful. She gives reviews before each lab practical and exam and a lot of extra credit at the end of quizzes/exams. Questions are pretty straight forward. It is not hard to get an "A" in the class. 1/3 of her class are getting "A's" right now.

if you want a bunch of "extra credit to pass this class.. this is the instructor for you!!I think that Phisio is important material for a healthcare provider, if you want to learn the material,and understand it.. do NOT take Lamkin.

When i first looked her up, she had a good rating so i took her. Big mistake. Her exams are so hard, her lectures are to boring, she never lets you leave on time. Some say that she was better before but she's most likely going through some problems at home. Regardless, there's no excuse to take it out on the students. Take Neary, she's very good.

She is often disorganized, rambles on tangents, and does not stick to her schedule. I often learn on my own, since she was limited on how to help most students. If you work well with the motivating/nurturing type instructor, Lamkin works. If you seek a more focused and outlined course, Neary is your better option.
