Mary Beth really knows her stuff. If you show up, participate, and take good notes I would skip getting the textbook. I would take her again!

I respect her but I personally do not like her. Points seem to be made up (no attendance pts but you lose pts for missing, random ex. credit) The quizzes were terrible as the questions were pulled randomly from such a minuscule section of the chapter. The course material was interesting, but her teaching is plagued by her arrogance for herself.

Comment:
Did not trust her abilities as the a/v person when she couldn't find the play button on Media Player. She is, self-proclaimed, computer illiterate. She was a little rude at times when trying to talk to her in her office. I was mostly disappointed with how certain things she said turned out to be false. I expected better from an associate professor.

MB is the example for how professor's should teach.Her classes are hard,but they should be!Everyone blames her for their mistakes, when the reailty is she is trying to help those who struggle improve.Those who claim she plays favorites are far from the truth. She is willing to help any and all students if they approach her with problms. MB rocks!

Her rules are a little ridicululous. 1. She will take your cell phone if it rings. 2. Only allowed one absence for semester. 3. Mandatory extra credit that is a waste of time. Easy class but she if full o herself

Great teacher and extremely interesting. Do not yank her chain and she will be one of the best Profs you will ever have. Do not gossip or talk about her behind her back because she will find out. She has a lot of friends and many people think very highly of her at PUC

MB is a phenomenal prof She gives a quality education, its tough, but she builds you up to handle real world MGMT. To those who said she is bitter & evil, TAKE RESPONSIBLITY! Look at yourself before blaming the prof. Are you afraid of the challenges? How'd you expect to handle the real world OR R U JUST SPOILED? Thanks MB Keep up the great work

I see a lot of anger coming from some students. That's your own fault for not following the class instructions and failing to do things correctly. The only time she comes down on anyone is when they are screwing up. You can get a lot out of her classes, but only if you have a positive attitude. I hope your snacks get stuck in the vending machines!

An evil person, why would someone who claims to have worked in the industry with big shots want to work at a college campus. Stay out of her classroom. I am transfering to Columbia College now that is true learning in the industry.

A very bitter person with major issues. Didn't learn a thing she spent most of the classtime intimidating students. Can't understand why she is teaching instead of working in the industry.WARNING: STAY OUT HER CLASS!!!!!!!!!

Comment:
I have a pretty good idea who this poster is under me, and I'd take all that with a grain of ....well....a salt lick. She can be tough, but I've never known a teacher to this endowed with knowledge, compassion and drive to teach as M.B. She's inspired me and others to reach for things we otherwise thought unattainable. I'd recommend her for anyone, regardless of major. If a student can offer an ounce of effort, she can change that into a world of education. Thanks M.B.

Comment:
she likes to make up rumors about students who no longer attend school at purdue- which is ironic seeing as how you have to sign a "no gossip contract" at the beginning of her classes. she also likes to pretend she cal blacklist you in the industry- which also seems ironic as one would think if she knew all these industry people she'd still be in the industry and not teaching at a sattelite school for purdue university. i advise everyone to stay out of her classes and i'm done.
