By far the worst teacher I have come across at USC so far. Test material is not covered in class at all and comes from a random online source which she blindly chooses from. Reads straight from the power points and uses her life and business as examples nonstop. SO ANNOYING. If you have any hope in passing MKTG 350 avoid this woman at all costs

One of the rudest teachers I've ever come across. Don't ask question bc she's so rude about answering them. The class itself was fairly easy. I'm glad she let us watch the lectures and take the tests online. Open book tests are the only reason I passed. Her lectures are awful though. I feel bad for next year when they are required to go to class.

The class was extremely easy because the test and quiz questions were from an online data bank meaning everything could be Googled. Her lectures teach nothing as she just reads off the slides and her "hybrid" model is more annoying than anything. This class should be way more interactive than it was.

Awful teacher. Very sarcastic, will not be polite when answering questions. Syllabus is very inconsistent with the dates and then will blame the students for not knowing when things are due. Awful woman.

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. Dr. Martin is useless and does not help or care about her students. The exam questions are tricky and nothing like what she talks about in class. I wouldn't even call her a teacher; she uses the publishers slides that she reads directly off of, and the exam questions come from a data bank. AVOID HER if you can!!

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT take Dr. Martin. She is terrible at explaining things, and spends 30 minutes telling a boring story on an easy concepts than skips over a confusing topic that should actually be explained. She refuses to answer any questions and tells you to look it up in the excessive and confusing syllabus. Horrible class and professor.

Pretty easy A but she is painfully rude. Don't ask any questions in class because she will make you feel like an idiot.

She's quite the insufferable individual, with an insidious smile and a consumeristic gluttony that's disgusting. She's unhelpful and an overall drag to be around. You will get an A, but expect to hate her by semester's end.

Good professor! Very clear and straightforward about expectations. Very helpful and an easy class as long as you put in the effort.

Easy A, not a difficult class by any means. Have the option to go to class or watch lectures online which is helpful. She can be a bit mean at points, but not a big deal. Put in a bit of effort and you'll get an easy A.

Easy A, but don't expect to learn anything. Martin does not provide any insight past the textbook, so all you need to do is read the textbook and run her recorded lectures on mute for credit. Only complaint is that she had a little obnoxious of a personality and comes off very abrasive of you ask a question or have a problem.

Amazing professor! This is how a prof should teach. If you try hard and show motivation she will happily help you. Tests are just like the homework. Just read and don't ask stupid questions which she has repeated a billion times. If you ask for help she will try her best. You can exempt the final! Definite recommendation for easy learning.

If you are good a sheer memorization than take martin. Her tests, quizs, and homework are just memorization from the textbook. Can't say I learned very much from her.

Expect an A in the class however its not a result of Martins teaching. She is incredibly unclear and always is confused yet speaks to the class as if we are stupid. Changed the syllabus 3 times, she messed up research credits, blamed me and spoke down to me. She is not respectful in the least, so she doesn't deserve any. Very simple class however!

While the class was undoubtedly informative, I found Martin's teaching style to be incredibly unprofessional. She needs to communicate better with her students and lose her superiority complex. I find it hard to respect teachers who refuse to respect students.

When it comes to exams you mind just well forget the lectures. Answers come straight form the book. Very wordy and make sure you read between the lines. If not you will fail her tests miserably.

Dr. Martin does not directly answer questions or provide clear, specific guidance. This is a course you could completely self teach, classes are a waste of time and boring, but mandatory. No tests, mostly group work - this class is like living on a hippie commune.

Fairly easy class. The material is really boring and Martin goes off on tangents a lot. She likes to hear herself talk (you'll hear a lot of personal stories). Class can be online if you want it to (via podcasts). Just keep up with everything online and study. No big deal.

Incredibly easy class. Never went once and I made an A. Basically an online class. You never have to go, but you can if you want to. The only part that was hard was remembering to do the daily homework assignments. Definitely recommended.
