Comment:
I am glad I was not the only one who thought her PowerPoints were confusing!! You definitely don't need the textbook because she expects you to know all her PowerPoints word by word on the test. If you are off by a word, she will dock points. If you want to pass, make sure you memorize everything and are able to cram all the notes on a 3x5 card.

Dr. Scully is in my top 3 favorite professors here at Delta. She has a plethora of knowledge and covers everything you need to know. You get plenty of in-class study time if you don't skip class. Tests are very straight forward, clear cut copies of the study guide. Extra credit given on tests. You need the lab book, only $7. One of my fav classes.

Absolutely love Scully. She's incredibly intelligent and she genuinely cares about her students and the subject. That being said - Her. Tests. Are. Really. Hard. If you want a decent grade, she will make you earn it - never think that you can pass her test without some serious studying. You need the article book - you don't need the textbook.

Scully is a great professor. If you can handle coming to class, lame dad jokes, and an enthusiastic bears fan you'll pass. The lecture was fairly easy just do the articles (super easy) and listen when she says something will be on the test. Lab requires more work but if you let her help you then you'll pass.

Dr. Scully-Linder is a brilliant Anthropologist with a wealth of experience and knowledge into the field. She has an amazing approach to lectures (the information is all relevant on tests) while simultaneously throwing in the occasional dad joke for good measure. She is extremely helpful to students who reach out to her. I highly recommend her!!

Took her lecture and lab seperately. But absolutely love her class. She will be retiring soon. I highly recommend to take this course with her. You will find her humoring and very engaging. She loves what she is teaching and will help you no matter what. Don't miss lectures and do the work !

You don't need to take the lab to pass this class. You can take just the lecture class. All her tests are based off of her powerpoints and she also gives handouts telling you what is going to be on the test so all you really have to do is show up and take notes. There's not much homework and in all honest, you don't really have to read the textbook

She won't accept your homework if you are late by minutes after she collects it. She went to berekely but her powerpoints are absolutely horrible. She clicks enter in between her sentences & it trails off into the next slide as a TITLE? The entire class is powerpoints. Tests are based off your notes that you take off of her bad power points.

Comment:
Not gonna lie, this lab requires a lot of memorization (skeleton, processes, etc.), but she gives a clear expectation of what she wants. Lots of class time to study the bones/ask her or her lab assistants a ton of questions! The lab manual serves as the textbook, and it's easy to follow along with. Be prepared to review outside of class too.

This is lecture-heavy, but the study guides tell you exactly what's on the test. Scully-Linder really cares about the subject matter; while her slide shows aren't the best, the way you'll understand is by actually listening, not just copying down what's there. Kind, funny, accessible, and gives so much extra credit during tests. Minimal homework!

Cheap books/workbooks. Really nice and enjoyable teacher, but if you're gonna take the Lab class, then be prepared for a workload and I hope you have good memory. It's very difficult to remember 100+ terms and having to identify which part of the body it is. I'm not over exaggerating either. Only one month in and it's stressing, upcoming test.

Comment:
Been in her class for a month now. she went to Berkeley and brags about it all the time, but her power points were made by a first grader. I don't think she knows how to use it, she clicks enter in the beginning of a sentence so random words are capitalized they're so unorganized and messy. She's great at explaining but not at making power points

Her class is very clear and to the point. Listen to her when she talks she will tell you what you need to know for the test and the secret to her class is to follow the study guide that she provides, its like having a copy of the test, She will help you with anything. Take her great teacher

This class was extremely lecture heavy and objectively boring. She does powerpoint lectures that are confusing to copy down and keep track of where you're at. The tests were not too bad, but her grading was harsh for the essay. If you're looking for a life science csu g. ed course, hold your nose and take this class.

This was such a hard class! She was too strict and talked on and on and on. Her lectures were very dry and although she seemed to love her subject, she didn't care much of how it was presented to her students. If you were one word off then all your effort was for nothing.

Professor Scully was awesome! She is so passionate about anthro and archeology, so it's kinda fun to hear her talk during lecture and lab. She loves questions, so never be afraid to ask. Yes, this class was difficult but if you do the work and study, you will pass.

Don't take her! She makes you write so many notes and her tests are not easy. She is a tough grader and she expects you to know EVERYTHING from the course.

This is the most boring class I have ever taken in my whole life. Please do not take this class, the high rating fooled me for sure. Her lectures are complete nonsense and you have one essay that she takes off 30% if you don't have in text citations.
