Dr. Farner is one of the best professors in community health. Her class is always straight forward and she is so knowledgeable on all of the topics she teaches. I love every class I take with her.

Any class with Farner is amazing. The paper was annoying at times, but you will feel accomplished when it's over. Awesome class!

CHLH 304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I enjoyed this class throughout the entire semester. Dr. Farner is an approachable and knowledgeable professor, and you should be able to get an A if you do well in the two tests (and turn in a good research paper, of course).

Dr. Farner is a great professor. I recommend her classes. She really knows her stuff and she is always willing to help struggling students. One of the best professors I've had so far.

CHLH250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wonderful teacher! Always had my attention and she always prepared us well for the exams. Some people do bad, but if you study the study guide that has only 20 questions on it you'll do fine. It's not cumulative. Very awesome class.

All lectures posted online after class. Mandatory in class assignments as well as articles to be read outside of class. Study guides given for tests. Tests followed study guides well. Great teacher!

Loved her and liked this class. So easy. The only thing that was annoying was the paper but it's due in sections so it's not too bad. Farner is so nice!

Farner is awesome. I went for help with finding articles for a research paper and she found three for me and printed them out. She's so nice and interesting. Love her.

SOC476 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a great professor. Kinda reminds me of my grandma. Exam questions are very open-ended and she's a pretty easy grader. And the class isn't so boring that it puts you to sleep, even at 8am. Take her class.

This class was really easy and interesting! Farner's reviews are perfectly representative of the exams (which consist of mc, t/f, short essay and 1 essay question). I would recommend this class to anyone!

Dr. Farner is an amazing professor. She makes class interesting when the material might not be. Her tests are super fair, just put in a some studying and you should be fine. Come to class cause she does random assignments for points. Wonderful teacher overall!

chlh494 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I have taken several classes with Dr. Farner. She is very helpful, just a little boring in lecture. Classes are easy. The thing I don't like is that in 494 you have to listen to her opinions. Australia is NOT like the US!

Soc476 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is really nice and class is really easy. Only 3 exams and 3 short papers. Exams are not hard, they are essay format, she gives you a study guide that tells you exactly what is on the exam and she is an easy grader. The topic is interesting and she seems very nice and genuine in wanting to teach her students. Take it, even if it's 8 am.

She's one of the greatest professor I'd ever had so far. She updates you on the worldly news on health care and bring in her personal travel stories all over the world. Very knowledgeable and highly recommended.

First off, DON'T buy the book. You will never need it. It goes into way too much detail for the class. Farner gives you everything you need on the slides and even tells you which slides to study. It's incredibly easy. She's also a really sweet lady who has been everywhere, seen everything and knows what she's talking about.

Professor Farner is by far the best professor I've had at U of I. You can tell she just wants to share what she knows with her students. Her lectures have way more information than needed, but she pretty much gives you the exam questions at the review, so be sure to go!

Class was babyish. Dr. Farner also is not someone to go to if you have a problem. She has no maternal instincts whatsoever and she will make you feel worse. She is good at working, that's all.

SOC476 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was absurdly easy, but incredibly dull. She is very nice and knows what shes teaching, but know that you are taking an intro to hospital management class. If you are not interested in the topic, it is probably not worth it.
