the class...SUCKS! If you can't handle the bare walls of Public Policy Building and can't stand the NANO talk for 2.5 hours, DON'T take this class! I totally regreted buying those two stupid books! She IS a nice person and she bought pizzas for our midterms and final, but you have to be a total science nut to convince her that you are just as crazy about science as her. I didn't like her grading policy and that she never had a clear update on the grading breakdown. I did so much work for this once a week course, and ended up with a B+( which I don't even know why since I got an A+ on my midterm). Make sure you evaluate what you want out of this class before you register: if you desperately want a B to boot up your GPA, then you can take it. But if you don't want a 5-unit class that you thought you could ace but ended up with a B+ and brought down your GPA (like me), then DON'T take it. By the way, her TA was useless--don't even understand why she has a TA.

She's nice but not a very effective professor at all. Her instructions are too vague, her explanations are vague and one of the TAs was not effective either. Absolutely unbelievable how forgetful and/or unorganized she can be sometimes.. Didn't even get the final assignments until the end of the quarter. Seriously, everything is just so vague. You have to figure out virtually everything out by yourself and just hope that whatever you're doing is right.
My advice: Do NOT take her classes

Course Taken: Soc 172, Entrepreneurship

I've been anticipating this class all year, I should have paid attention to all the negative reviews. I've been in the class one day and already it is a shitty class.

Prof Zucker has low self esteem and bad jokes show it because she is the only one who laughs at them.

She goes off on IRRELEVANT TANGENTS about her personal life and I just don't care about that. I'm paying money to learn about entrepreneurship.

Poorly organized. She begins the class talking about things as if we already know what she wants us to do... "Oh look at the tables on this website they will really help you out" why should I go there if I don't know what I'm supposed to be working toward???

BAD FIRST IMPRESSION

Not only is Zucker a bad teacher but she is probably one of the least helpful or caring teachers I've ever had at UCLA. She did not give us a single grade back throughout the entire quarter and randomly gave students A's, B's and C's. She knows some students from previous quarters/siblings and favors them so they received the A's. While the ones she doesn't know but submitted their work received B's and the ones who may have been late to class received C's. She does not respond to emails, and then she gets angry when trying to confront her about your grades. Stay away from this teacher. Shes too unpredictable and unfortunately the grade you get is not based on your work.
