This class was kind of a yikes in the moment, but okay in hindsight. I heard from previous students that there was a ton of busy work to do for this class, and was expecting it to be like the LS7 series, so I was a bit more prepared for the workload. There's usually pre-class reading and quiz, along with a post-class quiz, and a group project to be working on throughout the quarter. The readings can be long and boring, and often not very helpful for details you need on the written exams. I know this because I answered each topic section question of the textbook before exams to study, and it didn't help much. I've heard from other students that the lectures helped more than the textbook to study for the exam.
Let's talk exams. There are 2 midterms and 1 final exam, all written short answers, and make up like 50% of your grade. You're given a pretty small time slot to answer all questions to the best of your abilities, of which around half of the class complained directly to the professor about. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS WELL. We told the professor this several times, even eating up time through our lecture to tell her, and she still didn't budge on giving us more time for the midterm exams (despite giving us a poll that made it seem like she would). Most of us really just wanted an extra 10 minutes to answer around 23 questions in the given 75 minutes (so a total of 85 minutes), and she was unwilling to compromise. I did okay on exams (averaged B's on all exams), but KNOW I would've done better with those extra 10 minutes. Also, she spent a lot of lecture trying to justify her decision to not increase the time limit, even claiming that since we're nursing students, we should "be held at a higher standard." She literally gave us the "do better LUL" and didn't change a thing.
The one redeeming quality of this class: the extra credit. My GPA was saved from all the extra credit opportunities in this class and literally bumped my B to an A. What a godsend.
Overall: okay class, just pay attention in class to actually answer the clicker questions right and hopefully do better on your exams.

Professor Parker was an overall good teacher. She knows her information pretty well and at first I enjoyed the class like the first two weeks but oh my gosh the work load this woman gives is insane. You think you are done with work and when you check CCLE there is another inquizitive or smartwork hw you have to finish which are hard at times but not that hard because quizlet gotchu. Just make sure you do the inquizitives on time, make sure to do the smarthomeworks on time, post questions which she calls muddiest points, and participate in class. If you are a shy person, you are literally screwed because she has this name generator that calls on people randomly and if you answer the question you get the point if you don't then ya don't get a point. You have to present as well in front of the class your case study presentation and yall just get ready for this class because yall thought chem was the only hard class? NOPE! Goodluck?
BTW instead of taking notes get her objectives and answer those questions instead. You can fill those out as she is lecturing.
