This class is by far the worst I've ever taken. She is not helpful in the slightest.Her assignments are vaguely worded, and her "teaching" consists of you reading the book and answering questions. Her feedback is immediate and incredibly shallow, making it clear that she doesn't read responses. Avoid her if you can.

I wish I had taken the advice of the previous individuals. She is anal about APA, and doesn't try to inspire you but tear you down with her comments. I learned nothing in her class and she seemed distant. I had to graduate, so I couldn't avoid her class.

The Speech Communication course COM5401 is extremely challenging, but Dr. Hufman really knows her stuff, is very fair, and is helpful to the students. She provides excellent feedback and answers all emails promptly.

Professor Huffman is excellent! You will have to work for your grade; it’s not an easy course. There is a lot of writing and the professor will challenge you, both with the content of your work and the proper use of APA. If you are a serious student interested in learning then this course along with this professor will meet your needs.

Instructor gave very little effort in providing information about why points were lost. Nearly every document provided by the instructor (instructions, etc.) contained numerous typos. When grading, instructor appears to be more concerned with APA formatting than writing quality or creative thinking. I recommend this course, but not this instructor.

Very strict on APA style, but not the offical edition of APA, a pocket style manual, which is not true APA style. Rude, and whatever you do, don't "think outside the box" when writing your papers. Being "Christian" is what you live, not just an automated response citing the bible from your email, for which she does not respond to timely at all.

Needs to be more concrete about her expectations. Very vague. Let preachers teach about Jesus, and just teach the class.

This is the 4th class I have taken with this instructor and I would obviously take her again. Once you take a class or two from her you get the hang of what is expecting and the classes become much easier ( I made A's in my last two classes with her). She is a fair grader and for the most part I agree with most of previous comments.

This professor is extremely challenging. In truth, she's extremely biased, heavily political, and has a very hard stance on following APA format to the letter and citing everything under the sun. And she uses too many books. BUT - she's a good professor, provides a lot of feedback (if you press her), and she is very passionate about the subject.

Horrible professor. No examples of what she wants and is very critical of APA style. How can you be a teacher and not teach. I think she's very lazy and shouldn't be teaching. She's always quoting bible scriptures. She may know about the bible but she doesn't know how to teach. I would suggest staying away from this instructor.

Good prof. You will work in her class, and use more than one book. She will not accept lazy work, and her comments are generally to the point and not high school level. She will not hold your hand, but will help when necessary. Would take another of her classes.

unstructured, conflicts w/ book, talks during exams, doesn't have all sections of exam completed on-time thereby having students walk back and forth during exam which is VERY distracting, exams are difficult and weighted heavily compared to five written abstracts that take a long time to complete, like the fact that she prays in class we need it!

This teacher really has a bias as far as her political beliefs are concerned. She deliberately asks politically motivated questions and is not able to think outside the box and then penalizes you if you do not answer her questions in a way that reflects her ideas. I will never take a class taught by her again.

Great professor! Dr. Hufman expects college-level work. Read and follow her directions as she explains, and you will do fine. Dr. Hufman will respond via e-mail if you are taking on-line courses. Follow her examples and simply document your sources. I have taken two courses and will take more.

Dr. Huffman always uses more than one textbook per course. You are constantly going back between the texts, just to answer each question of your assignment. She is anal about APA format. She wants you to reference your source in every single paragraph. It was an overkill to document that often. I doubt I will take another of her courses.

I took five classes with Dr. Hufman and enjoyed the courses. I found her to be very fair and give timely feedback. I would definitely recommend taking courses with her. She does hold strong opinions and espouses her beliefs but students are free to express their views and make up their own mind.

Cuts the paper to pieces and doesn't care how much work the student put into it. Requests for help to improve result in statements, that when followed, result in the same grade on the next paper. This eacher will ruin your GPA...STAY AWAY!!!
