FCS170 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

To all the people that took 170 & are giving her a bad rating..... I COULD NOT AGREE WITH YOU ANYMORE. Everything these people are saying is 100% true. I am surprised to see that she actually has a couple of smiley faces. Tests are ridiculous & please keep all of your work. I had a problem with her losing one of my assignments as well.

FCS455 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She gave me an A because I had to study extra extra hard. Dr. Robinette is absolutely the worst teacher I have ever had, evil, not helpful, confusing, senile, teaches straight from the power point and book and act as if it is coming from her own mind. BUT she is the only one teaching this class so you guys are stuck unless by some luck she retires.

worse advisor yes! I have to wait to take the comprehensive exam because of her. She forget to sign the paper work. I wasted one year because of her. 3 year to got my M.S just because of her. She only does this for the money! she does not care about her students. BAD NEWS IS THAT SHE IS THE GRADUATE COORDINATOR!

FCS455 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This whole class is about opening your own business. I thought we were going to learn about merchandising and buying but no. There are about 6 papers and then a final business plan due at the end. Not enough time to complete all the work. Two tests, multiple choice and short answer, not enough time to answer all the questions. Grades hard on papers

I will admit her test are pretty hard but her projects are extremely easy!!!! She teaches in a way that doesnt sugar coat anything, she tells it to you how it is! She is not a bad advisor its all mostly stuck up girls who cant get what they want so they complain instead of excelling in their classes!!

worse advisor i have ever had! she tells students 2 take all these classes and then u can't even get into them cuz they're full & seniors get 1st priority. she treats the class like a bunch of kids and she makes students submit notes 4 if we don't read. she lectures on power point, we can take notes that way! i'm so glad she's retiring.

VERY UNORGANIZED & IGNORANT. Refers to Asians as "Orientals" + other **** comments. Her test are ridiculous. 7 Chapters with over 50 questions + 10 short answer in 1 hour!! Hold onto ALL of your work! She lost my assignments, gave me a bad grade, so I lost my CalGrant because of her! She still has NOT corrected my grade. 2 THUMBS DOWN!
