MARK 3000 - Principles of Marketing

Pros: She is very enthusiastic and clearly knows the material well. The only out of class work you need to do for this class is study for the exams, which doesn't take too much time. If you attend class, you can normally get about 3 points extra credit per exam by doing in class assignments, which helps a lot in the end.
Cons: The subject itself is boring and seems somewhat pointless at times. The exams can have tricky questions in them.

MARK 3000 - Principles of Marketing
Pros: Easy, easy course material.
Cons: This woman takes questions from her class for the exams, but her classes are mind-boringly simple and long-winded. The exams are much too difficult for the content you are asked to learn, and if I have to listen to her ask the question, "Right?" one more time I might just be upset enough to yell back, "WRONG"

I liked Grantham and thought she taught the material well. I had this class MWF, which meant all of our tests were multiple choice. I feel this made them easier than if she would have included essay questions. For the most part, the exams were pretty simple and straightforward if you knew your definitions and took good notes in class. However, on each test, there seemed to be questions that had multiple correct answers, and it was tough to figure out which answer she was looking for. Also, she doesn't answer questions during exams, so you're on your own in terms of figuring out what she meant. Even though the tests could be a little tricky at times, I only studied a few days before each test and am probably going to end up with an A- or an A thanks to the extra credit. Overall, I'd recommend Grantham since I hear Emmelhainz is harder and not as enthusiastic.

She is very knowledgeable and you can tell she really enjoys teaching marketing. Tests are multiple choice and an essay. The essay question is different on each form, which is sort of unfair... Questions are mainly application based and somewhat hard, but not at all impossible

Pros: You can get about 3 extra points on tests just by going to class. She gives some decent hints about what's going to be on the tests.
Cons: She's really boring and this class is painful to sit through. The tests are a little too hard for an intro to marketing class that the cohort black has to take. Just over all a pretty boring class.
Make sure you bring a crossword to class or you won't survive. She is kind of tough but I think I'll be able to manage a B, B+, or A-. You're kind of stuck with her as a Terry student but good luck.

Pros: It's required for Terry... that's about it.
Cons: Her tests are far more tricky than the subject material seems.

Her lectures are boring, she will go off on tangents and waste class time as well.
You need to study hard, memorize the obscure details. Those tiny things have a tendency to pop up on tests

1*
Pros: She's nice and outgoing, and gives exam bonus points for attending lecture.
Cons: Every lecture just seems like she's shouting sporadic information at you. She only has one tone of voice that seems to say "LISTEN" and I can't really make much sense of what she's saying because there is no inflection in her voice. Plus the tests are much more difficult than the subject matter.
The subject matter and the class is pretty easy, but the tests are made to trick you and it seems unnecessary.

Pros: Tests are pretty easy

Extra credit for going to class
Cons: Mind numbing lectures
She never changes tone, everything is equally exciting to her, so there is no way of listening for the important points, it is all delivered in a semi-shout.



I read the textbook the day before each test (after spending class time on facebook) and did well.

Pros: 3 point extra credit attendance/home works for each test. No attendance required.
Cons: Grade is strictly test based. The questions on the tests are sometimes tricky and the free response section is not always equally balanced in the class.
She is passionate about the class but marketing isn't my thing.

Pros: Pretty easy class if you read the book and go to class. She offers extra credit for "in-class" assignments. Sometimes they are online and you don't have to go to class that day, and some are like homework.
Cons: Part of the test is free-response and sometimes the topic is on something she didn't put a lot of emphasis on in class.

Tests get more difficult as the semester goes on. Your essay questions are hit or miss and can help or hurt your test grade depending on which one you get. Tests can get really detailed. You can get some extra credit points for your test for being in class to do random assignments. Not an easy class.

When I had her she was pregnant so our class was rushed. She's a nice lady but she picks the most obscure things to put on the test. Be sure to read everything in the textbook even the things on the sidebars as she likes to put that kind of stuff on the test.

She doesn't provide all the notes on her Powerpoints and only uploads them in pdf.
Tests aren't that hard but can be tricky and nit picky on the essay questions.

MARK 3000

Pros: Helpful and friendly, loves her subject
Cons: A little boring, doesn’t take clarifying questions during tests, no laptops or phones
Grantham is a pretty nice teacher who is always there if you need help or anything. It’s obvious that she really likes teaching marketing. A lot of reviews on here say she’s boring which is sort of true but not nearly as bad as it could be. It’s really more boring because of the subject not the teacher. It’s not like she talks in a monotone or uninspiring voice or anything like that. It’s just a pretty bland topic to begin with most of the time. It wouldn’t be as bad if she allowed laptops or phones, but she doesn’t allow anything like that so it kind of makes it more painful. Attendance isn’t required and she does give some extra credit, although sometimes you need to go to receive the extra credit. No homework except for extra credit. The only grades are 4 exams.



All that said there is one glaring flaw that she has: she doesn’t take clarifying questions during exams. She claims that it’s not fair which really doesn’t make sense to me… Most of the material is basically vocabulary based so it’s not too hard but the problem is that sometimes she writes questions on her exams where it’s hard to figure out what she’s really asking or what she was really thinking when she wrote it. So it can be hard to figure out what the best answer is sometimes and since she doesn’t answer clarifying questions during the exams you kind of get screwed over and have to assume what she meant in a question. This seemed to happen a lot. Her exams don’t seem that hard but since they aren’t too long, if she puts several questions like that where you have trouble figuring out what it’s asking and you get them all wrong it will really drag down your grade.

Pros: Very passionate teacher. She knows her stuff and loves to teach it.
Cons: Talks very fast and has a tremendous amount of energy which can be overwhelming sometimes.
Easy class if you just read the books and know the definitions. The tests are basically just over definitions and the main concept of each chapter. The definitions won't be word for word on the tests but they will be put into context but still pretty clear and straightforward. No need to attend class except for the extra credit. Every test she'll give the opportunity for 2-3 extra credit points by either doing an easy HW assignment before class or some kind of in-class activity. I made a 103 in the class and never studied until the day before the tests.

Pros: She really enjoys teaching the class and is extremely enthusiastic about MARK. The test are not that hard, they pretty much just are knowing a bunch of definitions/processes and applying them to situations.
Cons: For anyone that is not a MARK major it is pretty boring stuff. A lot of the class is taking common sense ideas and putting pretty words and processes behind it.
I didn't really like the class, but I enjoyed the teacher. The test are pretty fair and you know what to expect. She gives extra credit for each test (1-3 points) just for going to class pretty much. The homework part is never mandatory, if you just come to class and do the assignment you get credit.
