Comment:
Prof. Talarico changed my outlook on life, even years later. Initially upset that I had to take (pay for) Success 101, I quickly learned to pay attention to the source material and take advantage of extra opportunities. Students that cared and listened succeeded, those that didn't, didn't. Be goal oriented, participate, and get to know the prof!

Comment:
Professor Talarico, took forever to grade assignments. Yes, I understand she has other stuff to grade but it shouldnt take over a week to receive a grade. She does not give feedback on what to improve on essays, and if she does she is not clear on what she is looking for. So I never knew how to improve my essays. Therefore I learned nothing.

Prof. Talarico gives prompt feedback, makes time to clear up any doubt, and an amazing professor. Would definitely want to have her as a Professor again.

Professor Talarico is a respectable, realistic and caring woman. She gives great, honest feedback, so if your essay is bad, she'll tell you. At the end of the day, Professor Talarico is a solid choice for any of her classes at BCC.

Easy work but plenty. Up to 2 chptrs, 2 discussions, & 1 worksheet due ea. week. 1 final project but no exams & only 2 quizzes. Free PDFs of texts provided. Authoritarian during lecture but sweet 1on1. Lecture not mandatory. Credit for late assignments. Class avg 82%, mine 99%. Great for figuring out college/career choices. Pace yourself & succeed!

Prof Talarico is clear on what is expected week to week and seems organized. I did notice she takes a long time to respond to emails and also to grade your work. If you complete all the assignments, you will receive a good grade. Nevertheless, I didn't learn much. (Keep in mind, course was completely online)

Some days you would get the genuine side of her, but for the most part she always gave me a hard time. She liked to talk about herself a lot and always had a very obstinate way of thinking. She also wasn't available to talk to and you had to set up an "appointment". Be prepared to do a workload of assignments. Every. Single. Day.

Do your work and shell help you if you need something. She gives feedbacks and papers on a timely manner. Prof Talarico is not an easy professor which means you need to work hard, but at the end of the day youll feel that she cares for you/everyone. Shes not confusing. I wish I was able to take her again, but my schedule didnt match to hers.

She's great and I learned a lot of useful stuff about time management and mental health. This prof cares and keeps it real. I learned things I never thought would get talked about in class.

This teacher is really something else... She puts everybody on the spot in front of the class and will call you out on minor mistakes. Every time I go to class there is a problem with this teacher and she gives way to much work for a success class. She gives the dumbest assignments and If I were you DON'T TAKE HER CLASS what so ever.

Prof T was one of the best at bergen. The readings and discussions were good and she doesn't shy away from controversial sugbjects. She is a fair grader but you must be in class and do work on time. All you have to do is tlak to her if you have a problem. She has a lot of heart.

This prof was really good. Not a lot of work if you keep up and do all the drafts. You need to be in class but she keeps it interesting and she's funny. She has a heart if you have a problem and you go and talk to her.

She gives out so many homework its not usually the average homework that people get. Everyone tries their best to pass but she still doesn't pass them. She barley doesn't even teach in class and she laughs at the people whoever is going to fail.

She never gave busy work and most of the readings adn discussions were actually interesting. She really cares and listents to students. You need to come to class but she will work with you if you have a problem with stuff. I took her for success class first, and she was inspirational.

Prof T is a really fair teacher who gives you rewrites as long as the homework is handed in on time. She will work with you. And you can talk to her about anything.

She is not the nicest teacher and is very difficult to work with. She is very specific with her work and is unclear with what she wants. I would not recommend.
