Took this class as a ge req., and it was not a bad class; however, the professor does tend to get off topic at times, stick to a certain idea for a long time, or changes what she says often during her lectures. Despite, she is very helpful, if you have any questions email or go to her office hours, she is clear and will answer your questions/provide the help you need.
YES you need to READ the books, her lectures and assignments are based off what is read and learned from lectures. Also, the final exam is multiple choice and will ask you in depth/specific questions on the books. So basically, if you don't do the readings assigned, you will not pass the exam, or if you do read, make sure you thoroughly understand the books (do not skim read).
