Comment:
Kind and entertaining lady that follows a simple protocol: everything that's on her notes is exactly what's on her tests- no funny business. I aced all her tests just by reviewing the lecture notes and answering the questions on her review sheet. This was an organized and simple class. I didn't show up to most lectures. A minimal effort class.

She is so hilarious and you can tell she takes pride in what she teaches. She doesn't do powerpoints but sends out the notes on a sheet. She also gives out review sheets before the exams which include almost everything that will be on there. Only negative is that you're only graded by 4 things. So definitely show up to class.

I really enjoyed this class. Professor Schmitt is so funny and while her lectures consist of her speaking the entire time, she is straight forward and clear on what she expects from you. Everything she says is on the handouts. The topics get a little wacky sometimes which is fun and get ready to hear a lot of chirping from her bird!

Professor Schmitt is a good one. Her lectures are fun and she discusses a lot of outside topics, which is good. You are only grades by two quizzes, a midterm, and, a final. THERE ARE NO EXTRA CREDIT!! She gives you topics that are going to be on the midterm and final. Make the review on that and you should be fine. Take her!

Only graded on midterm and final. No extra credit or homework. Three quizzes. Not enough room to grow.

You are graded by a midterm and a final, she claims she gives no extra credit but show up to class and a B- can become a B potentially. I would not recommend her because her timing for her atrocious tests was too short, and she seems to be vague at times on her review sheet. Not everyone can remember all this info. She is nice though that's it.

Your grade is based on only midterm and final. So its really gonna hard to increase your grade. There is no extra credit and the exam questions are so tricky. Dont take this class.

She tries to make her class entertaining and really does care I wont lie. But she grades by very few things which is an issue for some. She should give just a few more assignments to help bump up grades for those struggling with test anxiety etc. Overall I did learn a lot from her class though. Shes very knowledgeable.

She's really funny and goes off lecture sometimes, but the class is really interesting. The exams can be a bit tricky and she gives good study guides. There is no extra credit. You do have to buy a reading packet that's about $35.

great professor - shes so sweet, and tries to make lectures interesting. attendance isnt mandatory, but she does bump your grade up if you show up most of the time. there was a book assigned but i never used it and still did well. only way to get the notes is to come to class, though. only graded on the midterm & final, study guides given online

Your grade in your class is depended on your attendance (if you have a perfect one), midterm, and final. So get ready to study intensely to get an A. The textbook was pretty useless as her handouts had the necessity. Overall, the professor was sweet and quite funny but doesn't care about how her students perform.

I went into this class thinking it would be an easy A, as Ive always loved Anthropology with a passion. Her tests have questions that are terribly worded as all the answers more or less make sense for the question. The book she makes you buy isnt really pricey but she makes you read nonstop so get ready to read. Dont take this class.

Took her for ANTH 289 too. She's firm, but fair. Exams are pretty easy and 90% straight from her lecture/handouts. If you show up to class and study the handouts, you'll pass easily. For 104, if you have good attendance, your grade gets a nice bump too. Despite her no nonsense policy, she's actually one of the sweetest professors you'll have. Gem!

she is a hilarious lady, made us laugh. posts book on bb so u don't have 2 buy. gives take home quizzes which are not graded but good to see if u know ur stuff. no EC except for tree question on final. she tries to trick you (does this never, sometimes, always or usually happen?). mean to those who don't do well and tells them to drop the class.

one of the best professors in QC. took her for summer LCD- 2 exams which were basically based of the quizzes she gave in class. If you come to class daily, she bumps up your grade by 1/2 a letter grade. For ex, A- goes to A. Tests are simple. Easy A. She is a gem!

She is a lovely little old lady (old school new yorker); her grading criteria are easy and straightforward. Sometimes she babbles off-topic or tells stories, but she is sweet and caring. Show up to class and skim the reading/ class notes since the subject is dense (especially for summer). But overall good professor I recommend taking her.

She has a book that can be purchased at the copy center, I used it close to tests to skim cause she does ask qs from the book. She goes over almost everything on the test during the lectures, so if you go to class, its not difficult to pass. She only grades based off the midterm and final. Overall great expirience in her class.
