Comment:
Worst professor ever! She is completely confusing and not helpful. The only reason I did well was because we had a fantastic TA. Concepts that the prof made extremely confusing were made clear by the TA who thankfully gave the whole class our exam review since Cathy was ill at the end of the semester.

Comment:
If you can do simple math you can do well in the course. The group project is a huge pain to coordinate, but doesn?t take to long to actually write. Teacher is a bit of a tough grader, and unjustifiably arrogant.

Scares you with the material but midterm/final are fairly easy. Didnt need textbook for much, know what she goes over in class. Cant read her writing, cant really ask for help but TA is VERY helpful, tells jokes but no one laughs, not the nicest lady but ive had worse profs. contradicts herself in marking and rips you a new one on your projects

Comment:
Unclear, aweful teacher. She watches over the restaurants like a hawk and takes far too much pride in her nosiness. Gives herself a triple chin when she poses a question and licks her lips frequently. Congratuate anyone who survives her, let alone her class.

This woman is the devil. Hates her job and is a terrible teacher aswell. She wrote the textbook and assumes that reading it will allow you to learn everything, therefore offers zero help. Not a nice person at all.

An alright professor, not the best. Always clears her throat, it's kind of nasty. Illegible handwriting, makes it even more illegible by squishing little words in a corner on the overhead. If you ask for help one on one, she will help you.

Somewhat organized. Writes all notes by hand using an overhead -it's hard to read sometimes! She's tough with marking and tests, but she knows her stuff. She can do crazy math calculations in her head. Make sure you read all of the instructions for assignments or you'll do poorly.

BEWARE: When she clear her throat you might want to vomit, it is the most disgusting noise you have ever heard. She is the most unfair marker and does not want to help you. She wants you to fail, I promise. She has this one blueberry outfit...it's nice. P.s- She hates you already.

- Wow - awful - zero help - rarely signed in to monitor the course - did not provide answers and would not clear up discrepancies - no office hours / never in office - slow at e-mail return (usually the middle of the night) - vague answers to questions that usually left you still wondering.

She marks very hard on assignments and isn't too sure of what she's talking about. She sometimes contradicts herself. The midterm isn't too bad but watch out. She seems laxidasical and unsure of several concepts.
