Opinion: PSC 2302 - As a solid but not excellent student, I have conflicting feelings about this class. Bridge made class interesting and I feel like I genuinely learned every day. However, the tests and essays were graded pretty harshly and somewhat irrational in my opinion. He would deduct excessive points for the smallest errors and the tests are all short answer. One of the essay topics was timed and not even remotely relevant to what we learned. I learned and loved the way Bridge teaches, but in terms of getting a high grade, I got a B+ despite a lot of hard work and feeling prepared for tests. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: ECO 2307 - These reviews are harsh. Ssozi is a solid teacher, the expectations are clear and if you take good notes and study efficiently, you will do fine. The only noticeable flaw is his accent, which just takes a little time adjusting to. However, compared to other teachers for this course, Ssozi is about as good as it gets. He is a great man, you will learn and an A is attainable with a solid work ethic. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3331 - Dr. Calloway is a very nice woman. She is brilliant, and she has a plethora of knowledge to share. She lacks organization in her classes. She also seems to be an extreme feminist and grades men more harshly then women. The amount of work required compared to the grade earned is not equivalent. I am an A student, and her quizzes and tests are absolutely ridiculous. She took five paragraph identifications from thousands of pages read and required you to identify them with very little context. She is a great person, but you can tell she just received tenure. Her grading just seems to equate to a graduate school course rather than a three thousand undergraduate course. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: PSY 1305 - Dr. Clark was an amazing professor. Her tests are mostly application based questions, which for those who want to go into health professions, are much more practical than questions on vocabulary terms. This is certainly;y a college level psych class, not an easy A, but Clark is very passionate about psychology and it translates really well into the classroom. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: STA 1380 - Dr. Maddox is fairly good professor. She is nice and tries her best to make lectures interesting, which is rare for a math prof. As far as workload goes, be careful, the class picks up VERY fast. The first test was an absolute cakewalk and I went into the second exam overly confident. There are only 2 exams in this class and then the final, and none of the exams are curved which I thought was strange for a statistics class with a focus on bell curves, but I digress. The quizzes suck. If you are off by .0001, the whole question is wrong on a 10 Q quiz. My advice would be to stay on top of material and don't get cocky after the first exam. This class ruined by 4.0, but it was my fault. Ugh. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: CHE 1301 - I really struggle with writing Dr. Klausmeyer a bad review, because he is such a nice and approachable person, but man he's merciless on quizzes and exams. I took him 8 am first semester of college, and was not in the slightest bit prepared for taking a real college level class. His quizzes are very hard but he gives EC at the end of the semester to bump quiz grades. The problem with Dr. K is that he goes very fast and there are such limited resources for help over the material (our SI was a joke) that it is very easy to end up in a hole feeling hopeless about your grade. The final is notoriously hard, but by the time I had to take it I had pretty much given up. I would strongly caution first semester freshmen from taking this class as it is a ROUGH welcome to the world of Baylor science. I ended up with a C- in the class and retook it with another prof and got an A. Dr. K is a sweet man but just not worth the hassle unless you are really passionate about combustion reactions. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: CHE 1301 - This class is the single easiest A you will find at Baylor. This, however, is a problem for those who actually need to learn chemistry for future chem classes and the MCAT. My advice would be to teach yourself the material as you go along to make sure you have a firm foundation for chem 2. Rabbe just reads off power points and works example problems that he often gets wrong, so going to class is not really helpful. If you just need the A, this is the perfect class for you, but if you need the A and an understanding of chemistry, prepare to put in a lot of time teaching yourself material using youtube videos and OWL homework. The textbook is completely useless, do not waste your money. Instead, use the power point packets he hands out as a jumping off point for teaching yourself. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: SOC 1305 - This class should be pretty easy if you attend lecture and read the books. Piper is so funny and I don't think there was a single class where the entire class did not laugh out loud at least once. He gives fairly detailed quizzes over readings, pay close attention to names, vocabulary, and just generally anything in the book that seems slightly tricky or possibly extraneous, because guaranteed that will be on the quiz. Tests are very easy, and if you're struggling, theres tons of EC documentaries you can watch to boost your grade. He is a Baylor professor through and through, very personable, passionate, and driven to help his students open their minds to the problems around them. This was an amazing class that I would take again in a heartbeat. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BIO 1105 - This class. Sucks. Because it is taught by TAs, your preparedness for the exams re 100% in their hands. My TA did not speak great English and did not teach us anything we needed to know for the exams, and I really doubt he even saw the exams or knew what would be on them. Since I took the class, they have changed it so there is no rat practical which is what killed most student's grades. You would think that the material would coincide with what is being taught in the bio lecture, but that is not at all the case. It is basically very dumb, uninteresting labs, often just watching beakers with plants or diffusion bags in beakers for an hour (lots of down time just sitting in the room, bring other work!!). Study the lab manuals only because the worksheets are not helpful. - Grade In Class:C+

Opinion: ECO 2307 - Professor Buckles is a great professor!! He always explained things very well and he was always open to discussion, no matter the topic. I didn't always agree with what he had to say, but the discussions were interesting. He was open to hearing everyone's opinion and he encouraged us to ask questions. He is always willing to help during office hours and you can go over your old tests and quizzes. We had homework questions on each chapter and he gave us a few really short quizzes to make sure we did the homework. We also had 2 multiple choice exams plus the final. As long as you pay attention in class, study the notes, and do the homework, you will be fine. I really enjoyed having him as a professor and I recommend that you take him! - Grade In Class:B+
