Just because her tests are not run of the mill multiple choice exams does not mean her class is impossibly difficult. She tells you exactly what to expect and has excellent discussions in class about the material. Class participation made this class, she should make it part of the grade. Oh well. She is still a great lecturer who really knows her stuff very well. If you are looking for an easy A, this is not it; if you are looking to learn a lot and are willing to actively listen, this is the professor to sign up with.

The course is a very good course with lots of good information. Though the professor does tend to talk too fast at times, she does repeat what is important. GO! to class, listen and take good notes because she only puts up outlines of her slides at the website; and the outlines are really outlines with only headings and things like that. Also, keep up with the readings for she tests from the text and lecture. Language development is an interesting topic and so you should consider taking this course, expecially if you are looking into child development. You will learn a lot! Therefore despite some of the professor's flaws, she was well organized, highly knowledgeable, and pretty fair in her exams. Testing on only the main overall concepts...things that she would want you to know "five years from now." Good Luck! :)
