Opinion: 3355 - I love this woman, but I will admit she is a savage and not for the faint of heart. When I took her class it was very small, so we were all able to get to know her much better than most students. She expects a lot, and she is not afraid to fail students she does not think have a mastery of the material, but she has a really big heart. Dr. S is no walk in the park, but get to know her and you have a fierce lady on your side. She is so worth it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1310/1350 - Professor Werse is the best! I went into his class having no idea how the semester would go and I was completely satisfied. He makes the class actually very interesting and is clearly very excited about his subjects. He is great at engaging the students in conversation and keeping them entertained, whether it be by simply speaking very excitedly or telling them old rabbinic stories. I would recommend him 100%. You do have homework every night which consists of readings from the textbooks and a homework assignment/quiz to go along with them, but the reading isn't too much and the assignments are very doable. (P.S. When I took the class, no essays were written, bonus!) - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 2402 - In my opinion, 2402 was harder than 2401 but still very doable with sufficient effort. The test questions were pretty much at the same level of difficulty but the content was a little harder to comprehend. Definitely take both anatomy courses with Dr. Taylor if you want to be prepared for nursing school; just try your best and literally give it your all. For both 2401/2402 I thought the final was the easiest out of all the exams. (& heads up... the ppt pool was much lower for my 2402 class than my 2401 class) Just hang in there and study as much as you possibly can. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 2402 - I thought I could do 2402 because I did well in 2401. I was WRONG. This class was completely different and in my opinion 10x harder than API. I dropped within the first month, which was good because most people I talked to failed the class. Take it at MCC or anywhere else. - Grade In Class:DROP

Opinion: 1350 - Overall, he's not a bad professor. He's funny and energetic, and if you like just listening to lectures rather than seeing powerpoints, he's your guy. The reason I dropped this class is the workload. It's a ton. I had this class late in the day and sitting through the lectures was hard enough already, but the work we had to do was simply too much for a required class. Pretty much daily there's questions (handwritten only) due on the reading from one of four books we had to buy, and on top of that, twice were we given extra assignments via email. I was already feeling like this class was too much, but after I got an email on a Friday before a three-day weekend about a 1-2 page, single-spaced essay about two online readings and a video, I deleted the email and went to BearWeb to drop the class. TL;DR, the prof is a good teacher and he's fun to listen to on occasion, but don't torture yourself with his workload. Wait until you can get an easier Heritage prof. - Grade In Class:DROP

Opinion: 1310 - I had his Tuesday/Thursday class which became painfully boring to sit through. During lectures he just talks about whatever he feels like, usually based on his powerpoints. If you take Kennedy, you will either need to already have extensive knowledge of nearly every book of the Bible, or be ready to dedicate lots of time to reading and rereading it. You will read nearly the entire Bible in this class. He provides study guide questions and claims that all of the test questions come from the study guides. However, there are so many questions, I couldn't remember all of the information during the exams. There are 10 online quizzes and 3 of them are dropped. The exams are multiple choice. Tuesday/Thursday has three exams with 75 questions, and MWF has four exams with 50. If you have no other choice, at least choose MWF, that will make it easier to do well. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 2311 - This course is quite different from other math courses I have taken in the past. Dr. Conni is very well intended, but the way she teaches doesn't work well with everyone. Most of the lecture is more theoretical and doing the homework after requires a lot of interpretation on rereading the book. She has a quiz every time you finish a section, and several quizzes get dropped. Her office hours were helpful, but it felt awkward to go in without a particular question about a problem. MIT has Linear Algebra lectures online, which I would recommend watching the first few before starting this class. The exams are a good representation of your knowledge of the material. There are some True/False questions which can be frustrating, but they aren't worth that large a percentage of the grade. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 1430 - Booth is easy to deal with if you don't run into any problems with the material. If he feels like your question is stupid, he will often answer it in a very demeaning way. He is able to give good examples, which are important in an intro class. He is pretty entertaining as well, and this was one of the only classes where I wasn't watching the clock and counting down how many minutes until it was over. The only homework was the programming assignments, which some of the later ones can be difficult to figure out and might take some time. I enjoyed them though, so I didn't mind (I am a CS Major). The programming assignments are pretty much the same for all of the Intro I classes though. The exams weren't that difficult, but Booth always graded them harshly. On one exam I lost 20% of the grade for one thing that he didn't like. The practicum is worth the same amount as the written exam, and you pretty much get 100% if the code compiles, and produces the desired result, which you can test with the upload site before leaving. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1306 - This class is very manageable with Mr. Sandwisch. Most topics I understood right away, and even if you didn't, he was very available to help you understand. There wasn't very much homework, mostly book reading. You don't need detailed notes, just look it over. There is a lot of extra credit available, and it is easy to get if you pay attention to details that he talks about during class. Even if you think it isn't important, it may be an extra credit question. The most difficult part was the final paper. He was very helpful in helping me get through that. - Grade In Class:A
