Professor Brown was very accommodating to me despite her difficult quizzes and tests. She will do anything to try to support her students.

She is extremely nice and very helpful. Sometimes her projects are a little over the top, but if you work hard enough, you will do fine.

She is the worst teacher I have ever had. Impossible to focus. she just talks and talk without ever stopping for questions. she laughs at her own dumb joke and is as old as dust. No help and her class averages for tests is always an F. if you get her transfer out immediately.

This was my least favorite class I had this semester. The homework was usually irrelevant to what were learning and her examples were not nearly as hard as quiz/test questions. I worked hard for the grade I got and I was surprised it ended up being an A. This class is challenging to pay attention because it is extremely boring.

Very nice lady. Not easy but very helpful. Puts many notes online which helps you study. She requires work but she's very nice and helpful.

This class is so ridiculously difficult for an intro level course. Her assignments really are impossible unless you've had coding experience prior to this. She gives an assignment and doesn't completely explain how to do it until after it's due. I regret taking this course, although she is a nice woman. She doesn't give much help either.

Had some previous coding experience. Didn't help. Most ridiculous "Intro" course ever. Not only were her assignments impossible to complete using only what she had taught us, but the guidelines for them were ridiculous and they had no real-world application. Even if your program works, if you don't do it how she wants it's wrong in her eyes.

I literally took her for a week and then peaced out before add/drop week was over. She is as old as a fossil. Throughout the class students will just get up and leave because they cannot take it anymore. She seems really nice though and appeared to be better at teaching computer science when she was a substitute for my class one week.

Great teacher and very helpful. I received a 90 or higher on all of my assignments. Yes, they're specific, but easy if you simply follow her directions. I had no problem completing any of the assignments and tests/quizzes were extremely easy and specifically related to the work currently being done in class. Thumbs Up.

Took her for computer science. Worst professor ever. She's about 90 years old, dresses like nanny mcphee and put me to sleep every single class. Does not teach you anything. just writes it on the board and expects you to understand. If you're not a complete computer geek, YOU WILL NOT PASS

IF you are not good at math, do not take this class, I am not the greatest math student and her tests and homework assignments are impossible. She is very picky about how you do the work for the math problems, and in class she talks to the chalkboard instead of the class...therefore DON'T take her!

Let me open this rant with a quote "What are these machines shes talking about?" She doesn't explain stuff. Friends just get up and leave when shes not looking because its not even worth sitting through. Excel projects are completely incomprehensible. 1.8 of 5.

horrible, horrible, horrible professor. I didn't even sign up for her, there was a scheduling conflict and we ended up with her. I recommend dropping the class immeadiately if you have her. Unfortunately, I didn't and now I am stuck with a C-. She can't teach at all.

If your a math genious, then you'll love her. Other than that...drop her class no matter what. Nice lady, very bad teaching, grades poorly and dresses poorly as well.

Not a great proffessor by any means. I struggle in math to begin with but she is very hard to follow at 8:30 in the morning. I highly recommend another proffessor.

The class was a joke. 8:00am with lights off and a projector running. She was never prepared for class. Spent two weeks teaching us how to check email!

Had her for both Elementary Functions and Discrete Structures, both at 8:00 am...it was a struggle not to fall asleep. Slightly odd grading system. She knows a LOT about what she's teaching, teaching style needs work. Makes leaps of logic in her proofs that are beyond my comprehension.
