Comment:
She is constantly making mistakes while writing tests and grading, ex. including questions in midterm you haven't learned about yet and you have to point it out to her, making lots of mistakes when grading so you have to always argue your grade, etc.. Her lectures are also not very engaging (online at least) and hard to get through.

Just don't do this to yourself. She seems so sweet at first, then 90% of the class failed the midterm. Drop the class.

Comment:
I can say without a doubt that Prof Ewing prepared me for upper graduate level courses. Her lectures were thorough and she had high expectations. So, if you are feeling "entitled" to a high grade, this is not a wise choice for you. If you would like to learn, this is the class for you. She is a rare, quality professor.

I found her a nice person when i took her class but she was one of the hardest teachers I've had, I failed the coarse. I had to take her class again but with a different teacher and got an A.

Comment:
She said she didn't want to teach anymore, so I wonder why she is still teaching? That comment made me feel a bit unwelcome. She is very tough in that she expects you to be able to memorize a lot of information. The tests were brutal. I usually get As, but I got a C- in this course. It was quite a shock for me. And I really tried! I wasn't lazy.

How such a hateful person exists is beyond me. If you don't want to teach, then don't be a TEACHER. She probably hates you already.

Karen is quite the professor. As with any really good teacher she takes the time to challenge you and pushes you to do your best. Do the readings, practive exams and keep your labs organized so you can access them easily for the lab quizes. Watch your grammer and spelling and if you have any difficulties go meet with her and record lectures too.

Comment:
Karen's an extremely nice and helpful teacher. I don't think her tests were THAT hard. She gives you practice/past exams to do;and almost 60% of the questions on the practice exams will appear on the midterms. If you know every question on the past exams, then you'll do well. If you don't do them, you'll regret it! GO TO HER STUDY SESSIONS!

she is a great teacher. the course itself is very hard, but she tries hard to help her students do well. she even volunteers her free time to students who want to have a study session. she also gives bonus assignments. very nice lady, but study hard for her tests!

Comment:
If you MUST take this course take it at Langara or SFU b/c it has about half the content of Cap's 112 (UBC's equivelant is just like cap). Lots of Reading Studying... very time consuming. Karen is NICE though, but very picky so if you don't got good english skills make sure ya skip'er class

The most warm and helpful teacher I've ever had. Don't be fooled; tests are extremely hard. Study everything!!! Get anything cleared up that you don't understand BEFORE you start studying for tests. Overall, Karen is definately one of the best teachers at cap by far!!

Reading the text, listening in class, asking questions and doing homework are the prof's job. You'll get our what you put in. Karen offers rides home, chances for bonus marks, intersting trivia, and endless access to her spare time. You don't find teachers like this every year. PS - Rhyolite!!

Karen's an okay professor, but her tests are hell. as are her labs. she's far too picky. don't use 'they' in scentences. always specify WHO. she dosn't always cover everything on the test, so read the text carefully.

Good teacher, bends over backwards to help students, understand hard college schedules. Tests ARE hard though, and sometimes she puts stuff on tests that you didn't cover. If given the chance i would take this teacher's course again.
