She is strict but very fair and you always knew what's expected. She explains every detail thoroughly, tells tons of interesting stories to help it all click, and promotes a lot of class discussion. Very little homework and tests were not that bad. Memorize notes and read articles and you'll be golden. One of my favorite classes because of her.

Professor Montella did a great job teaching this class. She was very clear and always welcomed questions. She didn't take any nonsense either which made it easier to get things done. She always had an interesting story to go along with topics which made things easier to remember.

Take her if you need to take RMI. Trust me on this one. HW (2x) & quizzes (4x) are an easy B or A if you study the PPT. Same with the exams (3x). She is strict but I prefer it that way, she keeps the "kids" in the class in check. No cell phones/laptops. Attendance is a must if you want to do well since you have to hand copy the notes each class pd.

she is a really nice lady and she teaches everything very clearly. I felt really strongly about doing well on the tests. She has good examples; you'll learn a lot.

I wish Temple would pay me to stand in front a class of 30 students to read the slides. She literally stands there and reads off the slides and there is no extra help to enhance your understanding of the material. You then get a test full of trick questions. Extremely rude as well and has no interest getting to know her students. Do not take he

Take her if necessary. Teaching is her second career and you can tell by the quality and effort of her teaching. Does her best to explain the material, but the material is overall dry and she doesn't have any talent explaining it in a way you would expect a professor to explain such a boring subject. Did not enjoy her approach to the subject at

She is very strict with attendance and in-class distractions. She makes the topics interesting and if you come to class and take excellent notes you will do well. No need to buy the textbook because the quizzes and tests are based on her lectures and the Bulk Pack that is required.

She is good... If you want to pass risk and get it over with Debra is who you want. The book is not needed... Just study the power points and you will ace her exams. Her lectures are sometime very interesting and helpful.. I learned a lot in her class...

Easiest class ever. Only need to memorize notes... meaning reading it 10 times before the exams thats it. Classes are boring and she just goes through the powerpoints but easy A if you are capable of memorizing notes!

The RMI 2101 course is very challenging. If it is not your major. This instructor should have broken it into 3 exams. Unfortunately she reads off the chapters on the screen for students to take notes. She is a pretty dry person with no character. I guess the insurance industry teaches you it?

Attend every class and take good notes, and with some time dedicated to studying it isn't too difficult to get a really good grade in the class. Not required to even use the book, as the notes given every class cover everything sufficiently.
