PROFESSOR J. WALKER KNOWS MORE THAN WHAT SHE TEACHES. THOUGH SHE SOMETIMES TEACHES OUT OF CONTENT, YET SHE GETS YOU BACK ON TRACK. WHAT I REALLY LIKE ABOUT HER IS THAT SHE REVIEW WITH THE CLASS TO PREPARE YOU FOR QUIZES OR EXAMS.

You can't come to class, and check out until the next class. You're asking for failure. She is constantly available for students to come to her outside of class. This extends past her designated office hours. I do agree taking Chem 121 will help. But she covers Chem 121 for the first 3 weeks or so. You give what you get. I got no complaints.

If you have never taken basic chemistry course do not take her. Ms. Walker will not be hands on. If you have a job run away from this teacher/class. If you plan to be a chemist that's the only way you might find this class/teacher. This teacher is not for people who are new to chemistry..

Professor Walker is friendly and you can tell that she enjoys chemistry but that is the only good. She is extremly unorganized.Like nothing I had ever experience from a teacher. It takes two to three weeks to recieve test and quiz grades. You really have no clue how your doing in the class. She seems kind but don't miss any test. Take someone else.

I took this professor's class this summer, and as hard as it was to condense the material for a full semester into an 8 week course, I think that Professor Walker remained very approachable and generally wanted students to succeed. Her exams are difficult, but with sufficient time spent studying, you can do well.

I do part time job and study hard to maintain my gpa above 3.0.I learned how to see great stuffs about science in internet from her class.Istill need to revise myself with topics like stoichiometry and molecular arrangements to solve problems.I wanted to study chemistry in her class,but she was never organized. I don't recommend my cousins to this.

Prof. Walker is very passionate about her field and this shows in her manner of teaching. I would recommend her to anyone looking to really learn the subject of chem. Her exams are complicated, but so is chemistry! Personally, I should have taken this over a full semester rather than the summer due to my weak chem background, but she is great.

Professor Walker is hard but fair. She will help you understand anything you're struggling with. She will definitely still hold you to a high standard. She is unquestionably a good teacher, and you will be better for learning from her.

She knows Chemistry and does lots of demonstrations in class. Overall, believe me her exams may be a little hard, but if you study and do your labs well, you will have excellent grade. If you are thinking of taking chemistry in Truman, she's the best. She is nice and her class is very interesting.

She's the head of the Chemistry department and rarely has time for her students. She doesn't grade exams and quizzes on time. Pretty much you have no idea how you are doing throughout the semester because she rarely uses blackboard. She has her own website, and provides answers to problems assigned. Does not have enough time for students!

I am not a science nerd but I learned a lot in class. It's cool because a lot of the content relates to real life stuff. And Prof. Walker is a great teacher. When it starts getting dry/boring she tries a different approach. A cool mix of newspaper articles/ videos along with more scientific stuff. A good choice to satisfy degree requirements.

Currently taking the current events in physical sciences class. Shes a GREAT teacher even if the subject isnt the most amazing. Im more into the biological aspects of science this is more the dirt and air of it. BUT tons of videos/articles/demos keep it interesting and a great way to take care of a physical science credit req. Also no text book!

Prof Walker is very enthusiastic and energetic. Even though she is the chair of the department, she still finds time to hold student study sessions all the time and her door is always open. Even if you are a good student and not struggling, I recommend attending all her study sessions. It's like an extension of class. She's a great professor :)

Her love of chemistry is infectious. She offers many resources for study outside of class: group study sessions and her own frequently updated website.

Walker is as good as it gets and if you care about your education then I highly suggest taking her class. She expects a lot but gives as much (if not more) than she asks. She's extremely fair in her grading and is very clear about her expectations. Any reasonably motivated student will have no trouble getting an A and learn a lot in the process.
