Comment:
She only gave us 45 minutes to complete a 70 question exam. I didn't have enough time to fully read and process the questions. She also only gave us minimal info on the final less that 48 hours before the exam, then she did something completely different. She also read straight off of the lecture slides. The textbook was more helpful and engaging

Good prof. Only thing I would have to complain about is her tests. Since everything was online, the first exam we weren't allowed to go back and check over questions, a lot of people didn't answer questions and weren't able to go back. She did not inform us we couldn't go back. The final was also 70 questions in 45 min!

Comment:
Had my final today; 70 questions in 45 minutes, not a fair shot at all, you could hardly read the questions and think properly. The lectures were not worth it as she just read off the slides word for word. Was nice to have an option for extra credit.

Spent most of the class time reading word for word what the slides tell us. Only given 45 minutes on the final exam worth 75 questions - I didn't even have time to read all the questions. She also didn't tell us how many minutes and questions there would be. Do NOT recommend.

I didn't watch any of her lectures online which I know sounds crazy, but found the textbook was more helpful. Took about 3hrs for each chapter. Tests were easy as they were all multiple choice.

Comment:
Was a good teacher. Very large class so you can get lost in there. Tests were a bit tough, although all multiple choice. You really have to read the text and although it's not mandatory to show up, if you miss notes you could be missing stuff on tests as she will challenge you on both. Lots of reading in this course.

Comment:
The class was really interesting but if you're an arts student it can be complicated. the exams were difficult and the final was long. there are no marked assignments in between so the class is based on test marks alone which sucks, but she is a good professor and her topics were usually interesting. i really liked her use of videos as examples.

good teaching style. her use of examples made things easy to understand. exams were on lecture notes and textbook equally, so show up to class and read the textbook. i don't know why everyone is saying her exams are so difficult. if you read the notes and textbook and know the material, you'll do fine. a few tricky questions, but nothing too hard.

Comment:
Tests & exams are ridiculously difficult; especially since the grammar & punctuation are so terrible! She uses the text and her lecture notes equally. She lets people yak uncontrollably during her lectures, which is distracting for everyone else. She also lets people text on their cells during her lectures.

Sandra's tests are very hard, do not come into this class and expect to slack off. She puts most of the things she talks about on her exams, I would not get the book if I were you, I barely used too. Not worth that 100 dollars if you ask me.

Wonderful lady! Three hour lectures, wow. Tape recorders work great! Read your text, do some of the study guide. She reminds me slightly of Ellen DeGenres. Very good Prof!

Good prof, but her three hour classes get pretty long (read: bring snacks). Make sure you THROUGHLY read/study the text (three hours a chapter, I found) if you want to get anything above a B.

Great prof, very interesting and runs an enjoyable class. After taking this class I decided to further studies in psycology. Great sense of humor and great at explaining things.
