offers lots of extra credit - good chance in passing and getting A if you do all extra credit because class is a challenge. if you take this class, you will retain every information. her classes r hard n they do require time and effort - but isnt that what all students r SUPPOSED to do anyways? She is very passionate n does hav high expectatations

FOR A 101 CLASS IT IS VERY HARD. BUT I PROMISE YOU IF YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT HISTORY SHE IS VERY THOROUGH. I THINK STUDENTS GET FRUSTRATED BEC MANY DO NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT HISTORY AND JUST SEE IT AS "ANOTHER CLASS" SO THE TIME AND EFFORT REQUIRED TO PASS POSES A GREAT DEAL OF CHALLENGE TO MOST STUDENTS

Very hard class. I hardly read or did the assignments after the first test. I even wrote an extra credit paper on the wrong topic. She is very mean in class but talking to her outside of class about something not class related she is great. I tried to drop twice, she wouldn't let me and she gave me an A.

IN ALL FAIRNESS. HER CLASSES ARE VERY CHALLENGING. REQUIRES A LOT OF READING, TIME AND DEDICATION. THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. BUT I PROMISE YOU, IF YOU DO WHAT SHE ASKS AND SPENDS TIME STUDYING LIKE ANY STUDENT IS SUPPOSED TO, YOU WILL LEARN AND REMEMBER ALL HER MATERIAL. SHE TEACHES IN A WAY THAT REQUIRES A STUDENT TO REALLY USE THEIR BRAIN.

HORRIBLE! Does not give good notes. Does not give help. Thinks she knows it all and don't care if you don't understand. Talks too fast. Will look at you like you are stupid if you ask questions. I don't reccomend her to anyone. For a 101 class this makes no sense for it to be impossible to pass.

This is a gen ed class that I had to spend approximately 10-15 hours on per week. Maybe at Harvard, folks, but not at Upstate where students work and go to school full time. She is completely unclear, babbles on about unrelated topics, doesn't try to build a rapport with students. I've never dropped a class in my life before this one. AVOID!

She talks about useless information and gives tests on things she never even mentions. So if you are stuck w. her just tune her out and read your textbook.

Comment:
This is the worst teacher I've ever had. Throughout my college career, I have always been a full time student, I'm active in 3 organizations, and have almost always worked 2 jobs. I.e., I don't mind hard work. But Prof. Rickert is ridiculous. She's completely unclear regarding what she wants students to study. Horrible. Rude, not helpful at all.

Not a good teacher at all. She expects you to remember everything she has learned and get's an attitude when you ask her for help. She gives hard quizes and teaches pointless topics. Nothing in this class will help you in life. Obsessed with China and dosen't spend much time on the other subjects in the class. Her group assignments are pointless.

Keep track of everything you do online, because she will lose it and then grade you on what you can remember what you did

Do all of the allocated assignments. Read the textbook. Go to the study sessions. Actively participate in the class/group discussions. Pay attention to class lectures. Go to class. Thoroughly STUDY for the tests. Do all this, and you will do very well in this class.

This is by far one of the hardest history classes I have ever taken. In the beginning everyone starts dropping it and it is very hard and A LOT of work but she is an amazing teacher. She loves history, and covers everything. Hands down the best history teacher I have ever had. This class is not an easy A but an A is very possible.

I hate history so this was no fun She is kind of wierd but doesnt care what you think. She means everything she says especially due dates and assignments. You have to study alot and I just found the class to be a waste of time. Its irrelevant information that will never be needed. She can be really rude to people in front of the class so watch out.

Pay attention. Do your homework. STUDY. She covers a lot in a short course. DO ALL EXTRA CREDIT WORK POSSIBLE. Go to the study groups. She tests fairly and thoroughly. This is an intense class, lots of information. TAKE NOTES! If you don't get a good grade in this course, it's your own fault.
