Comment: She isn't that great of a lecturer but do make her slides very clear and helpful. OH are not recommended. Not much help. I would rather read the book for this portion of the course.

Comment: Boring and horrible. Lectures were useless. Wording on the midterm was confusing. Made easy concepts difficult to understand.

Comment: Her lectures are mainly what her colleagues have done. She is very unclear and simply can't explain concepts very well. Her exams are poorly worded, but aren't that difficult. It'll just be very confusing and irritating. Read carefully and try to go to lecture a few times to get a feel for her style. Her tests reflect upon it. Overall, worst of the 3 1b professors.

Comment: Her lectures were pretty vague. Her exams were more or less average on the difficulty scale, but there were a few questions that were quite ambiguous. The worst of the three professors in 1B.

Comment: Terrible lectures that were pretty unorganized. She goes over a lot of random case studies that involve her friends work and whatnot. She doesn't really go over that many actual "real" concepts so it was extremely difficult to figure out what we had to actually study to do well on her exams. Her exams were pretty easy and straightforward though. She is pretty enthusiastic about the material so thats a plus.
