This class was the easiest class I HAVE EVER TAKEN IN MY COLLEGE CAREER. IF YOU DO NOT GET AN A.. THEN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU. It was honestly A JOKE! YOU DONT NEED THE BOOK, JUST READ THE NOTES THEY ARE EXACTLY WHATS ON THE TEST!! SOOOOOOO EASY

Not a bad class. Pretty easy but you have to study. Dr. McDowall is extremely difficult to understand, and unfortunately, she writes her exams the exact same way she speaks, making it impossible to understand the question. Go to class for extra credit points, she always takes attendance. One big paper at the end of the semester, but it's easy.

Professor McDowall is okay, but not a great teacher. The class material is pretty basic and self explanatory. The tests are easy and you have a couple of easy papers to write. It is sometimes hard to understand her and she can be really rude when you ask her questions. Attendance is only mandatory some days. Take her if you want an easy A.

I really enjoyed this professor. She is very sweet and funny, even if her Thai accent is a little hard to understand. The class was easy, one big project split into 2 parts. Attendance is mostly non-mandatory. Tests, guest speakers. No laptops. Class was hard to sit through sometimes but ultimately it was an easy grade.

This class is really easy. Attendance isn't mandatory. She did confuse the class on the instructions for the final paper. We had a field trip and three guest speakers. She's worth taking.

Nice lady, easy teacher. No reason not to take it, but sitting through the class can get to be frustrating. She will show pictures from her vacations, and youtube videos. Like I said, very nice teacher, but class drags on.

Easy class, no reason not to take it. Just go to class and you will be fine. I have a hard time with accents, but it's not like she's speaking another language.

Dr. McDowall is an execellent instructor. Her English is just a bit hard to understand but she is very diligent to speak clearly. Many students are disrespectful I think because of that and think they are smarter than her. It amazes me of how rude and ignorant some students are. This instructor is very organized and knowlegeable. I learned alot.

She's an easy teacher. She even lets you use your notes for pop quizzes! She does have an accent but you can typically understand her. This is America, many people have accents and some people just need to get used to hearing them. She's also amusing, but don't expect to learn much.

Dr. McDowall was great. I can't understand why some people would say such horrible things. She has to be one of the sweetest teachers at Rosen. As long as you show her respect she shows you respect. An easy A & even though some lectures are boring she says some funny things. Her accent isnt that bad I could always understand her.

She has poor classroom management skills. Asked the class for written feedback and spent the whole next class defending herself. Review sheets are helpful. Make sure you follow guidelines for paper/project! If you dont have to take her I would not.

So basically, it's a really easy A, BUT prepare to be frustrated beyond all belief! If you aren't double checking her grading on EVERYTHING, you will fail. She messes up a lot, but will fix it if you bring it to her attention. Class is mandatory and pretty boring, but she gives a lot of really easy extra credit. Accent is hard to understand.

Nice person. Bad teacher. She has no respect for her students, therefore they have no respect for her. She has a twisted sense of humor. This is the 3rd college I've attended, and she is by far the worst I have encountered. She is good about getting your grades back to you. Who says a paragraph MUST contain 10 sentences?

Dr. McDowall CARES so much about her students and if the students in her class had given her a CHANCE to speak, they would have realized that you can understand her just fine and she has a lot of interesting and often funny things to say. Profs that take time to help students so much like her are rare- Treat her with respect and she will in return!

The worst professor I've ever had. You can only understand half of what she says. The class is uninteresting and redundant, and she doesn't help it. The 10 page paper she makes you write is full of details that are difficult to add. Avoid her at ALL COSTS.

First of all, you cannot understand a word she is saying. Secondly she is unorganized and never knows what she is talking about. The class is about Event Risk and the only thing she has actually done with EVENT risk has been to take us to the OCCC for a field trip. The rest of the class has been about 9/11. Be prepared to be confused at all times.
