Comment: Ostertag's lectures go pretty quickly so notetaking can be a bit difficult, but it's all good info and her passion for the subject, especially concrete, is evident in her teaching. the two midterms were tough mostly because we only had an hour - they covered a lot of material so you had to be strategic about which questions you answered first. the final was better because time really wasn't an issue and the questions were pretty fair. the homework assignments were kind of annoying and time-consuming, so GSI office hours definitely helped. the textbook and reader were interesting to read, but pretty much only useful for the homework. i really loved the labs for this class even though the lab reports were a pain to write. overall, the class was tough but i really enjoyed it!

Comment: Ostertag is a tough woman, but she can be soft at times too. She seemed to noticeably prefer the students who knew the material. Her exams were tough but fair. She really loves concrete, and she has many interesting stories. You'll work hard, but it's worth it.

Comment: Ostertag's lectures are amazing, she really loves concrete. The assignments don't really prepare you for the exams, which are very difficult; so study hard.

Comment: Boy does Ostertag know her stuff- and expect you to learn it quick! I found her hw assignments fair. She is enthusiastic. I felt like her hw and lectures were not very effective in preparing people for the exams.

Comment: Ostertag is awesome, however her accent could be hard to understand sometimes. This class involves a lot of material and labs are annoying. Problem sets are easy to be done in OH. This class was a lot of work though
