5*****
Pros: Super sweet woman!! She is a wonderful teacher and you can tell that she is very passionate about what she is teaching. There were a few guest speakers for the class who were all very interesting.
Cons: The information can sometimes seem overwhelming. There is no book for the class and all of the information for the tests come from fill-in-the-blank power points. The tests are not very hard, as long as you study.
An overall nice class to take and not very hard as long as you pay attention and study a little.

Pros: Very nice and helpful teacher. She really explains the material well.
Cons: Tricky test questions.
You get to watch a lot of supplemental videos for the class but they are not necessarily helpful for the test. Tests are actually difficult so make sure you start studying soon, especially since their are only 2 tests. She usually drops questions after the test so your grade will go up. Definitely not an easy A class.

Pros: Ms. Brigman is very helpful and wants her students to do well. There are a lot of projects in her class, but she provides work days where she is available for help in class.
Her class is straight forward. Study the material presented in class and you will do well.

Pros: She posts the powerpoints online.

She has good energy and is really nice.

Her final exam is composed of questions from the previous unit tests and you can copy down all the old test questions and answers before the final.

She gives extra credit.

Pros: Great teacher, very nice

Don't need book

Easy A if come to class and pay attention

Extra credit for going to class
LOVE Mrs. Brigman! She is super sweet and a really great teacher. You have two easy projects and three exams plus a final. The final is mandatory but you get to drop your lowest test grade which is awesome. She gives 10 points extra credit for going to class. Overall easy A just make sure to take the notes (she doesn't post all of them online).

5*****
Pros: - no pop quizzes

- attendance is only taken randomly 10 times throughout the semester

- you don't have to purchase the book

- exams are lengthy but very fair (no trick questions)

- awesome and sweet professor who will be able to answer any questions you might have

- she teaches in a way that's easy to understand

- she won't make you memorize numbers mindlessly; everything she wants you to do has a purpose
Cons: - if you miss a day of class, make sure to get the notes from someone because the tests are thorough in covering all material (not in fine detail but briefly)

- only 3 tests and a final plus 2 projects so you have to do well on the tests (which shouldn't be too hard to do)
She is so sweet and the best professor ever! She is my favorite professor I have had so far in my college career. She goes through slides at a slow enough pace so you can copy everything down AND understand it. She is a bank of knowledge that is reasonable. Her tests are completely fair. If you come to class, take notes, and review them, the test will not be any surprise. I completely recommend this class.

Pros: Drops lowest of three tests

Gives extra credit for attendance

Throws out test questions if a lot of people missed them.

Two super easy projects.



Cons: You HAVE to go to class because the notes are fill-in-the blank and to get the extra credit.

Tests cover material from around 200-300 slides.

Can get really, really boring at sometimes
Overall, Ms. Brigman is super knowledgeable about her field and is a good teacher. She tries to make things interesting and is always super willing to work with students. I ended up really enjoying this class, it's just a LOT of hard work and time that has to go into it. I made 600 notecards just for one test, so if aren't someone who can study for weeks ahead of a test I would recommend taking someone else.

Pros: * Tests right off her powerpoint slides (although must go in class to get some of the extra detail that she says



* no textbook readings



* keeps the material interesting
Cons: * no study guide for tests



*rarely takes attendance



*
Her tests are relatively easy if you study. Nothing too laborious. No homework, just go to class and take notes and study them for the test. The one "project" in the class is also very simple and not time-consuming in the slightest.



Easy A.

Pros: She drops a test (you only have 3 to begin with), the first test is on koofers WORD FOR WORD, notes for every class are online on eLC, 10 extra credit points just for attendance (but no penalty if you don't go to class), two VERY easy projects that are basically completion grades.
Cons: There is a cumulative final, BUT it is only made up of questions that you've have before on the other 3 tests
Take this class! The extra credit/curves make it so easy to do well.

Pros: Powerpoints are put on-line but she leaves some things out to encourage you to come to class. Tests come straight from the lecture notes and the textbook is not required for this class...AT ALL. There are few little assignments but they are very very easy!
Cons: Lectures can get a little boring after a while. But other than that this class is okay.

Pros: She posts the PowerPoint online, but you have to go to class to fill- in the blank.

Cons: She always says that her tests are very easy but she does try to trick you. Her tests are not as easy as she said.
She has her favorites. She is nice and really wants her students to do well. Her class is pretty straight forward but can be boring.

Pros: Posts all powerpoints. Easy tests.
Cons: Go to class. Even though she does not have an attendance policy, if you want to do well, class is a must. She posts skeletal powerpoints on eLC and you can go through the book and get most of the info from it, but taking her notes in class is so much easier.

Pros: Easy extra credit just for being in class. Projects were a breeze.
Cons: All notes are on powerpoint, but just given skeleton so you have to got to class to get it but she goes through the slides too quickly. Lectures were absolutely boring.

You don't need to buy the textbook as long as are in class for the notes. I really enjoyed having her and want to take her again in the future. She tells stories while she's teaching so it doesn't get boring.
