Comment:
Discrete Signals and Systems. This class was pretty cool. I was expecting to get a bunch of applications stuff, but it ended up being purely a math class after week 1. Rust is really clear about what she wants. She gives a ton of practice problems prior to exams. Exams are semi-multiple choice. Did I mention open-book, open-note exams? No problems.

A good professor that is very clear and helpful. Tests are always open book and open note, which is definitely a plus and she is consistent for all her classes. All in all, you'll do well if you study properly.

do not take, her game is to pick students to bless and others to fail, and if you're one of the undesirables she'll fail you or get you to drop before you get to fill out one of those reviews, pay attention you'll see

Comment:
People told me that she was harsh and not fair at all before I had her. But that is COMPLETELY wrong! I have had her for 2 clases in the past 2 terms and would take any class with her. She wants everyone to know whats going on and she explains everything very clearly.

Hands down my favorite teacher at Kettering. Very helpful throughout the term and mins before the final. She starts taking attendence at the beginning of the term but if you have a reason she is pretty reasonable about it.

Comment:
She is proficient in her skills to get the information across. I had a hard time understanding the way she graded test a bit on the low side. One error and she graded the whole problem wrong. I think her personal life is affecting her availability since she was not always easy to contact and she seemed rushed.

Comment:
Took her back for Circuits I: Half of our class failed out. Of the remaining 8 students, 4 (including myself) were doing an audit. Ranks high on the list of Kettering's WORST profs. Whatever helps you to understand or work out problems is irrelevant, because only her methods work (false). Could care less about the comprehension of the students.

Comment:
This professor is a very compentent teacher however, she does not interact well with the students. At times she looks like she is off in space. Her mood swings go from high to low which leads me to believe she is experiencing some form of disorder like mania. I would recommend her but beware of her mood swings very uncharacteristic.

Excellent professor, she is extremely clear, does a lot of examples in class. You have to go to class and pay attention, not arrive hung over, as my neighbor did constantly; I got As he got Cs. Its all in how much time you put towards it.

Comment:
Overall, terrible. Have taken her before and her grading is dumb - One small error and expect to get nothing close to even half credit on the problem. Boring most of the time, and when she spices things up its generally about some off topic item. Often mixes up words and KVL/KCL when talking in lecture which is confusing when taking notes.

Showed up late to many classes. Missed without notice many classes. Exams were difficult and quizes impossible with the time requirements. Would not help when asked during office hours. This prof needs to be replaced!

I liked her overall. My grade wasn't the highest, but it wasn't her fault. Her teaching style is clear, doesn't require much work, very helpful. No complaints here. I'm taking her for EE 310 now and she's still a cool prof. I'd recommend.

Terrible Professor, Nice one day and mean the next. Watch your back, you may get stabbed with a resistor. Had to re-do labs even though lab was graded and was above a 90%. Only teaches using one style of teaching. Expects students to do problems her way even though there are several different ways to do a problem. Willmarkyoudownforrightanswers

Comment:
Not very helpful, has overly strict guidelines, and teaches 15 minutes worth of material in an hour long class, but 15 minutes that are NOT easy to make up, as she differs from some online resources and her notes are hard to follow if copying someone else's. Also threatened to drop me from the class for missing a lab I couldn't help missing. Bad

Basics Circuits shouldn't be this hard. 75% of our class was failing going into the final. Her quizes are practically impossible to do in the 10 minutes she gives you. She had to have curved the crap out of the class, I think I got about a 20 point curve from what I should have gotten. DON'T TAKE!

Avoid her if you can help it. One day she will be nice and helpful and then the other she will be out to screw you over.
