FD 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Agree with other post, She will judge you for your opinions and once she thinks your not good enough, not only will she openly tell you in front of the class but she will refuse to help you anymore the rest of the course. Even if you begin to understand she will tell your your wrong and say it in her own words.

The comments about Karp are accurate. Karp knows her stuff but she would be better suited teaching a more advance class. It is very easy to get lost especially if you are new to draping.

She gets so nervous and has this annoying laugh. She is very unclear when teaching, the guy that is assisting the class is really a better teacher. Never rely on her angle account because it is no help at all. This class was pointless and alot of unnicesarry steps

Please do yourself a favor and never take her online class. Other than that, she's very thorough and a difficult grader but she is willing to help.

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, gets annoyed when you ask questions or whenever she has to repeat herself in general. Referred to ways of doing things we'd never been taught. Definitely do not recommend taking her class, will never take her again. Good luck if you get her.

Want an A? Make sure u press your muslin well. Draw clean lines. Take copious/neat notes during demo even if u have a good memory. Pin well/evenly. Final project; make it creative but not 2 difficult. It takes longer than u think. She did not collect our final muslin/pattern paper (but she could). She brings snacks. She can't answer questions well.

She is very nice and helpful, I think Draping is a hard subject so even if you are the best Prof. Sometimes it will be hard to explain it. She was always available to talk or teach in outside of class. Overall Very good Prof. to have.

IF YOU SEE THIS NAME ON YOUR SCHEDULE RUN LIKE THE WIND! GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN OR YOU WILL NEVER SLEEP. she emails hw assignments on the weekends, and is very frazzled and unorganized. take these ratings seriously because i for sure didnt and regret it. she has a shrill laugh, the banana bread on the first day is a trap
