Opinion: Math 1322 - SHORT ANSWER: textbook is not needed, homework is lengthy and difficult, quizzes are infrequent but are easier than the homework (sometimes there is a partner, group or open-note quiz), exams are difficult but but do-able (except for at least one problem each test which is impossible) and come from the homework or notes, unbelievably slow at grading, the most reliable way of contacting her is email, but even sometimes she won't respond, outside tutoring is a MUST to succeed, in-class notes are posted online (huge benefit since she'll go fast sometimes), allows a cheat sheet for the Series and Sequences exam. LONG ANSWER: Calc II is a very difficult course regardless of professor and school. Ms. Nichols is very slow at grading all her assignments, like the worst I've ever seen. Some students were unable to drop her class at the drop deadline because she did not have the most recent exam grades in so the grades were not updated and they could not make an educated decision. Even the final exam grades were in way after the deadline for professors. She has several ways of contacting her (email, text, office hours, Skype, Canvas, even WebAssign) but most are unreliable--stick to emailing or office hours. I went to the Math Lab (different than the Success Center and are graduate students who are phenomenal at explaining the material) at least 4 hours every week for homework help because her office hours were during my classes. Her homework assignments are as challenging as the exam and can take an entire afternoon to complete one section of one chapter. The homework is through WebAssign which is like MasteringChemistry, an online service that students need to pay for rather than textbook problems, and can range anywhere from 10 to 32 problems. I averaged C's on the exams and an A on the final. At the end of the year the if your exam average was an A you did not have to take the final, which replaces the lowest test grade, but recent changes now makes the final for this class departmental and therefore mandatory. She swaps the grade weight of quizzes and homework depending on what helps your grade more. She is great at slowing things down in lecture (she'll frequently skip algebraic steps and other little steps). She posts notes from lecture online, which will be very helpful, and notes for Calc I. - Grade In Class:C+

Opinion: ACC 2303 - Dr.Ford is a great professor and seems like A very nice person. She tends to rush material at the end of class sometimes to fit the syllabus schedule. Going into her test you feel confident because of the way the material is taught after the test you will realize that her test are extremely hard. I felt like I was under prepared for her exams. There is only 4 PTS extra credit the entire semester. If you feel like this class will be a struggle for you I highly suggest taking a professor who offers extra credit. I took this class again in the summer and passed with an A with a Lower rated professor. The 80 rating on bubook should actually be like an 67 because of difficulty of her test. Again If you feel confident in this course you will do great if you don't take another professor. - Grade In Class:D

Opinion: 3422 - It's unfortunate that Dr. Tandy is the H. Phys professor because while he is very knowledgeable about the subject and has very educational lectures, it is very apparent that he doesn't have his heart in teaching. He is very rude and does not like office hours, he will always try to get you out of the door as quickly as possible. He also does not really explain things very well if you are having trouble with a concept, he pretty much just repeats what he said in lecture if you ask him a question during office hours. The tests (5 of them including the final) were not too bad though (usually around an 80 average), but there are many questions that have answer choices with very tricky wording. Overall just get a smart friend, read the lecture notes and attend class and you will probably be fine - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: Med Terminology - This class is a breeze. You have a quiz every week, 2 tests, and a final. There is plenty of extra credit opportunities offered on the quizzes and throughout the semester. Dr. White doesnt give out any homework, all you need to do is study your vocab. He's very clear about his expectations for the class and how he grades, and he's really nice. Attendance and participation is a pretty big part of your grade, so dont skip. Lectures are pretty boring but he tires to make them interesting with some greek/ roman mythology and facts! If you need to take this class I would 10/10 recommend Dr. White. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: Biomechanics - Dr. Shim is a really cool professor and wants his students to succeed! This class is tough but totally manageable. I'm terrible at math and physics so I was pretty scared of this class. But if you read the book and take really good notes during class you'll easily get an A or B. Dr. Shim is more than happy to help students and is extremely patient. Seriously, one time he sat there explaining one problem to me for like 20 minutes during office hours before I understood. Go into this class open minded and ready to work hard! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1305 - Had her for the team-taught class and she was very sweet! She had a lot of examples for the material she was teaching and her tests were straight-forward with no tricks at all. Definitely the easiest out of the 4 professors - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3331/3332/3238 - Organic Chemistry is a hard subject, but I've found it's a lot easier to learn when you aren't bored to death. Dr. George is great at explaining the material and using analogies that students really understand. Plus he has a really animated teaching style so it's easy to want to pay attention. His class is hard, but if you work a little bit almost every day he will really teach you organic chemistry, not just memorization. I genuinely enjoyed his class. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 23** - Although the workload was alot you can learn alot from Prof. Smith. I guess it looks like i\\\'m one of the few that actually enjoyed taking Prof. Smith. Probably because its just a bunch of girls on here complaining. But if you want a professor that is very helpful and has a clear ability to explain all concepts in English, take Smith you wont regret it if you just pay attention and participate in his class. If you go in with the mentality that it is a required course and its too much to handle, than you have the wrong attitude. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 1405 - This class was ridiculously easy! If you pay attention to his lectures and occasionally read the book you will be fine. If you are doing poorly toward the end of the semester, make sure you do really well on the book report (which is basically a given) and have a good topic for your final paper! I wouldn't say his was the most enjoyable class, but I don't find chemistry enjoyable so...... - Grade In Class:A
