Coming from someone who dislikes history, I loved her. If you want to learn and DO WORK(as a college student should), than you'll be fine. Take notes, highlight, read, make flashcards, print multiple maps, pre-write essay questions. SHE GIVES YOU A STUDY GUIDE that has everything on the the test. She's only hard if you refuse to try and are lazy.

She is an awesome teacher! The test are extremely hard especially if you don't take notes. There are plenty of readings. Only take her of you are interested in History!

Tests are short answer with no word bank. If you're looking for an easy elective,don't take this class.

She is a good professor when it comes to the lectures, its the test that suck. It's all fill in the blank, essay questions, and nonsense. If you even slightly give her what she wants for an answer its never right. You have to be extremely specific when it comes to answers. Don't take her unless you're desperate like I was for another clas

Dr. Ritchey is really great! So helpful and interesting. Her class is crazy hard for a 101 class and there are a ton of readings. But if you're interested in history and don't mind studying a little, I'd definitely recommend her. Map, readings, and essays on every test but theres always a study guide. She made me decide to minor in history!

Sara Ritchey is genius. This class is a challenge, but that is what college is all about, bettering yourself through hard work. Dr. Ritchey really makes you re-think everything. The class is super open and your opinion about religion is never shot down. I recommend her to anyone who is not afraid of a challenge. Also I think she is a timelord.

She makes the class harder than needed to be. People like me that just need 1 history to get it out of the way she makes it like we are trying to major in history. She made us do more work than any other class i had. I would suggest not to take her!!!

A very difficult course. Her lectures are boring but I managed to stay focused and studied my butt off and still barley passed. Her assistant grades the tests and obviously grades really hard because barley anyone had higher than a C in my class. GOOD LUCK! Is all I have to say!

If you are just taking this expecting it to be an "easy" class, do not. This course requires a lot of work. Cheers.

She is an amazing professor. I enjoyed her lectures. She did cover plenty of material and the tests were detailed, but if you took good notes and studied, it was possible to make an A. She was also very helpful if students had questions.

If you can find a better teacher to take this class, do SO. If your an upperclassmen and just taking this class and really dont need it, NOT TAKE HER! She does the most and want you to read so much. She kind of assign readings as if she knows her class is the only one you're taking. Her test are long, you have to memorize a map on each test.

She really is an amazing teacher. Bring a laptop and type everything she says. She is very easy going and knows what she is talking about. The best professor I have ever had. I typed my notes, printed them out before tests, and highlighted what is on the study guide and got As on every test. Take her. You won't regret it.

Dr. Ritchey is AMAZING! As long as you show interest in her lectures and actually put forth effort, she is an easy A or B.

Have a laptop! I can't imagine hand-writing her notes. Sooo much info. If you take good notes, though, you barely need your book. Also, read the Moodle docs!

She is a fantastic lecturer. She tells you the stories and is very colorful. If you don't understand something, go talk to her and she will help you as much as you need. She'll even look over your notes with you to make sure what you're studying is correct. If you fail her class, it's your bad, not hers.

Tests were hard & you must read the readings on moodle!(And remember the century in which the event happened.) You pretty much write for the entire class session, & she gets mad if you start packing 30 SECONDS before class ends. This was the first class that I EVER failed. :(

Do not take her. She grades erratically. Also, she seems to favor the female students. If you're a chick she'll love you. I do not recommend this prof.; the worst I've had in a while.

SUCH a great professor. She loves her job and it shows. Her lectures are interesting and therefore easy to stay focused on. Tests come almost exclusively from notes and Moodle readings. Lots of writing for the tests, but not hard if you understand the material. Go see her if you have any questions. She is super helpful and filled with awesome.

She is really hot but gives WAY To many notes. Her tests are really hard! She makes a 101 class way harder than it should be.
