Please do not take this class. I found it extremely hard to focus during class because I simply could not either understand half the stuff she was saying or I was bored out of my mind because she had a very monotonous voice. She does not curve, so your grade will legit be your real grade. The workload is a lot, and sometimes she randomly puts assignments on courseworks and assigns random due dates for them like Saturday night or something which you end up forgetting because that is not the time of the class and you usually associate homework being due at the beginning of class time. I understood absolutely nothing from this class, and it was very hard to stay awake. so basically you will neither get pleasure nor the grades from being in this class. You will also not know anything when final exam time comes, so you will have to cram all 17 chapters of the book during reading week and basically address them like you are reading new chapters for the first time.
