102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I do not have a single good thing to say about this professor. I had her for orientation class, shes usually a psychology teacher and she told my whole class to take another professor for psychology because hes better, the class is stupid but everyone has to take it, she mapped out my courses wrong for my major and my adviser had to fix it

Psy208 online Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I must say I have taken online classes before and she is by far the worst professor ever! I was excited about taking this class as need it for Nursing and she managed to make this class very miserable for me. Her tone is rude. Maybe she is much nicer in person. I will never take an online class again and I owe it all to her!!

If you have a choice, do not take one of her online classes. I have now taken two, and I will never again. maybe in real class she is different, but online, she is absolutely useless. I have A's in every single class I have taken at RACC. in her class, I get A-. she acts like she wants to help until you ask for it.

Although the work is simple and she makes it pretty clear what is expected, her personality is lacking. Maybe she would be more enjoyable to take on campus, but online she often comes across as rude.

psy 208 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This teacher was USELESS! The work was easy and manageable. I did not appreciate her sarcasm and negativity. I also disliked how she would respond to my homework questioning what I did as a child... Would not recommend this teacher to anyone who has a broad outlook on life because according to her she is always right.

Carol is the most judgmental rude professor I have had to deal with. Her class is very simple, but you have to do the work. I would rather have a challenging teacher than have to deal with a poor attitude and a closed mind. Never express your opinion or let her know what you believe in because she will automatically bash you for it.

Her class is pretty simple she gives a lot of opportunity for good grades and extra credit. However, She is not a nice person, she's very sarcastic and has a way of making you look stupid in front of everyone. I wouldn't take her again, even though the class is simple.

PSY 235 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Carol is a very straight forward professor in every way. She lays out what she expects from you and does not diverge. There is a lot of work but she gives extra credit which gives plenty of opportunity for a good grade. She allows a first draft of to be submitted for papers which ensures you an A. She is very opinionated but fair in her grading.

She doesn't care about any situation. If you don't do her material then you will fail and don't go to her for help. She happily tell you that she doesn't give special treatment to ANYONE. God forbid you end up in the hospital she still won't let you make anything up.

Refreshing to have an honest and tell it like it is professor! Loved this class, easy!!!!You just have to do the work. Some students need to lighten up, she would never hold a difference of opinion against anyone.

Judgemental and moody professor, who marks things off papers just to be critical. VERY opinionated, and sometimes downright ignorantly so. I haven't had a worse professor in my life. Do not take her class!

Worse professor I have ever had. I spoke out about my opinion and than a day later I got a very bad grade on my homework. When I asked her why she made up lame reasons that didn't make any sense. She told me I didn't answer questions that I did and gave me a fifty for it. Do not take her class if you do not have to!

PSY210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Guidelines and directions for certain assignments would fail to include items she actually wanted, and I would be marked off because of it. One flaw would bring my A or B paper down to barely passing, sometimes failing. If you take her class, make sure (no matter what) to submit your projects and papers by the feedback deadline.

This class is easy if you put in the work required. One quiz a week, one Chapter question a week and 4 papers. This final is the quizzes combined. If you are to ask her a question, do NOT get offended by her answer. Accept it and move on. YOU ASKED FOR HER OPINION She does want everyone to do good, show her that you try your best & show up to class

3.) If my work quality is capable of a B or an A, then I would appreciate a grade that recognizes that. But the fact that every week she gives me less credit than I deserve and it makes me want to not do any work, since my work is clearly not making a difference! My grade is so low right now because of her form of grading.

2.) She would give me a much lower grade than my work would be worth, and her reasoning would be some nonsensical excuse that clearly does not make up for taking a big chunk of my grade off.

Awful! I agree with other posters, keep your mouth shut and all opinions to yourself and definitely don't disagree with her opinions unless you want to be graded unfairly. All she talks about are her poor kids that she adopted and her personal problems. On the plus side, her classes are never challenging and always an easy A...if you can stand her.

I do not recommend taking a online class with this lady especially over the summer. It seems that I just can not please her. I am mostly A and some B student. I am definately not learning from this class. I agree with the other posts that if you disagree with her she is very hard on you. I would't recommend taking her class
