Had professor Barnum for BA 257 and thought she was an excellent instructor, an expert i'd say. One of the best. Very helpful, easy going. Complete the homework and study hard, one should do well if one did well and understood 256.

Comment:
Took the online course as a business professional furthering my education. She made us read the entire text plus the bonus chapters and we were quizzed on each. This in addition many weekly assignments and group projects that took massive amounts of time. I recommend just buying the class textbook, reading it and take the CLEP test for $75.

Comment:
I do NOT recommend this teacher for Online Ba 103. I don't mind homework, but she assigned a ton of assignments and discussion board posts over 15 weeks, & only graded 10. It's not uncommon to spend 5 hours on an assignment, and receive no grade for it. Also, tests are graded, but u cannot see what answers were marked incorrect-Bad prof all around!

Prof Barnum is awesome...but you have to work hard. She keeps everyone interested because she's so enthused even at 8am. Makes a tough topic understandable.

Awful! I had her for an online class... She was very unclear about the homework and NEVER would respond to anyones questions/problems. The class itself was easy... she was just a bad teacher. I've had several online classes and have loved them all except this one.

Comment:
She is by far the best prof. i have had yet. She makes sure every single person understand everything before moving on to something else. She grades tests and quizes amazingly fast, usually back by the next class. She knows exactly what she is doing, and makes everything easy to understand. If you dont do good in her class, it must be your fault.

She was by far the worst teacher I have experienced. She claims she has taught for years, but she does not know what she is doing. Plus she gives you literally hours worth of pointless homework every class and only collects certain things but doesent tell you which ones she will collect so sometimes you spend hours on something she doesent collect

~ ONLINE CLASS ~ WOULD NEVER take another online class with her as an instructor. She is TERRIBLY BEHIND on her grading and makes excuses for it. I had another online class at the same time and that teacher was grading immediately (within a few days) where Barnum takes WEEKS before grading things. The tests are terrible, she makes them timed and mo

I thought she was a great teacher! She constantly asked the class and indviduals if they understood before we moved on. Everyone felt comfortable asking questions, so if you weren't doing good or didnt understand it was your own fault. I understood the material she was teaching and was very encouraging! I recommend her as a teacher!!!

She can beconfusing, she goes too fast, and she expects way too much in too little time. Take someone else who will make sure you understand the material.

not helpful and more concerned with other matters than the students. Back stabbing, sour puss attitude. Avoid like the bubonic plague! Heck the plague would have been better and easier to deal with. Should name a hurricane after her!

She is a very nice person and all, but her class was impossible. She flew through all of the material and was more concerned about being on schedule with her syllabus than concerned with if everyone in the class got what we were doing.

I thought Mary was great. She tought with an incredible understanding of the topic and a great concern of student understanding. One thing that was of great use to me was the Business lab. You must realize it is going to be work. Fortunately enough, shes willing to help ya out too.

Be careful with this teacher if you are not determined to pay great attention. You will not get good grades on the tests and she reserves 50% of your grade for her final group business project. By the time that everyone gets done dropping out you wont have a group to work with and you will fail
