Opinion: 1301 - I took this class in the summer during the first session, and I have NEVER done so well in a class in my life. I had the advantage of taking Spanish in high school, so I had a little more experience than some of the other students, but Garza was very helpful to those who didn't have the background like I did. There's really not a lot of homework for this course, just online activities due once a week, which take less than 30 minutes. I got a 99.75 in the class, and I don't think I spent any more time studying than the other students. Just keep your textbook organized (I would recommend sticky notes for the vocab pages so you can find them quickly) and you will be totally fine. He is truly the best teacher I have ever had at Baylor, I created an account just to review him. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: REL1310 - I took this class during Summer of Discovery and didn't encounter any problems. We had a discussion, reading questions, quizzes, and a test each week, but it was all very manageable and took about 2-4 hours each day to complete. The tests are very easy (3 of them were all multiple choice, all about 35 questions) as long as you do the reading and all of the required work. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: SOC 1305 - I took his class online this summer. He held weekly zoom office hours where maybe at the most 4 people would show up. But, he's nice and definetly willing to help. Even though I only had him for an online class I'm sad this is his last semester. The class was very doable. He had videos where he explained the readings and went over statistics. For online, there was a weekly content quiz at the end of every week. They were multiple choice and easy as long as you paid attention to the videos. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CSS 1302 - I took her class online in the summer. Although, I didn't meet her in person, she seemed nice. There was a quiz at the end of each week that was multiple choice except for the last two questions, which were the short answer. The quizzes were easy as long as you read the textbook and take note of the definitions. We had to present four speeches by recording them and uploading them to canvas. If you have a hard time remembering things or don't want to present a speech in front of your class, then I suggest taking her class online in the summer. She was a fairly easy grader, which balanced out the amount of reading we had to do. There were three weeks where she assigns five chapters to read. It's very important to read the chapters in the textbook because that info will be on the quiz, and her lecture videos don't cover that. Because of the many chapters, I would usually finish reading that same day; the speech was due. Therefore, I would have about 12 hours to write my speech, revise it, record it, edit the recording, and upload it to canvas. But she's a nice teacher so take her class! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3332 - I do not recommend taking him online -you watch videos and he makes a half-hearted attempt to zoom with the class once a week. In addition, summer courses are very fast paced, so you will have 11 hours of video lectures to learn in 4 days. I felt like I understood the material well after watching his videos, and this was a GREAT MCAT prep class, but I ended up with a 78 due to not understanding his confusing question style. I think that if I could have taken the course in person, I would have been more used to his lecturing style and therefore his questions. Material for each exam finds its way to the next exam, which is difficult if you bomb one exam and ace all the others. He loves tricky questions, like what would happen to plasma K+ if you were lost in the dessert with no water for days. It's not enough to just memorize "K+ moves by solvent drag" - you need to think like Tandy and know he will ask it as tricky as possible. All in all, I'm glad I took this course as it has made my MCAT bio score increase, and I have learned a lot, but I was disappointing in his lack of lecturing and feel it kept me from the grade I had hoped for. Start studying now! The first two exams are the hardest in my opinion, the reproductive/GI tract is the easiest. - Grade In Class:C+

Opinion: 1310 - I took this class online over the summer. He was honestly a little uncommunicative and didn't respond to problems regarding miswritten questions and such. A lot of documents regarding the schedule and due dates were confusing and contradicted one another, and many students ended up getting 0 on assignments because of it. The course included no lectures-- it was all textbook based. The tests and quizzes were easy as long as you read the textbook; most questions could be found word-for-word from the textbook. Answers are not available online, but as long as you have your textbook you should be able to answer easily. I only occasionally found the reading assignments overwhelming, but in general they weren't too difficult. The textbooks are relatively easy to understand as well. The discussions and essays were a little more difficult in that it was hard to tell what he wanted to see in the essay. When asked, he essentially just said to "do your best." If you're someone who gets hung up about rubrics, this might freak you out, but he's kind and an easy grader. As someone who is not Christian and has never learned anything about Christianity before, this class was pretty easy, though I will admit I don't think I learned very much. I sent about 8 emails to get him to fix my grade on a quiz question he admitted to being worded wrong-- it took a while to get it done but just don't give up, and don't be afraid to contact him! He is very understanding and technology can definitely be difficult sometimes. If you have questions just email him LOTS, and if you have friends, get them to email him too because it usually takes a while for him to reply. Overall, though, an easy class and easy A, at least in my experience! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: REL 1310 - I knew when signing up for an online class over the summer, the situation would not be ideal. However, Kennedy proved that it can be worse. Many students in the class would discuss our difficulties of the course together. On the first day of class, we had a syllabus quiz and he didn't post it until multiple students emailed him. He doesn't actually teach, just gives assigned readings and you teach yourself. The only grades I received for the course were for multiple-choice computer-graded quizzes, he didn't input our essay or discussion grades until the day after the class ended. Overall, do not recommend this professor. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: MTH 1308 - I took this class over the summer and online, so my opinion may be different than those before me. I never actually got taught by this professor. While the videos he provided were good and informational, they were another professor, which is why I had to give a low rating for teaching ability. I knew condensing a semester-long class into a month would be a higher than average workload, but it was very manageable while I took another course and started a summer internship. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1321 - summer online course here. This was done online and was a huge amount of work. She doesn't get back to you with emails. The Test are NOTHING like the practice questions she give, so don't do those. Her Test's are hard. Make sure you know factoring or else you will fail. The don't review trig so make sure to take pre-calc. If you took AP calc, take PRE CALC or else you will get a bad grade. Don't think just because you did AP you will be amazing, you won't i promise. Do not take her online. The exams are proctored and not easy AT ALL. The attentiveness of the professor was sub-par. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 1300 - I took Dr. Wingerd's HIS 1300 class as an online summer course, but even online I found it easily manageable. The daily readings take time, but are in no way unreasonable. Make sure to put effort into your reading responses, including specific names and dates, not just entering general information. - Grade In Class:A
