Okay, Okay. This is going to be an HONEST review! I know that as I was in this class, I hated it so much just because of all the work we had to do. [It actually wasn't even that much -- all that was a lot was the readings]. So, if you are good with managing your time, take this. Anyways, I complained a lot because I felt I had a lot of work to do! But, now that I am out of this class, I feel like i LEARNED so MUCH! Like, I kind of forget things I've learned, but this class I find myself still knowing what we learned.! This class, I think made me more conscious of everything around me. The midterm and final study guides can be a bitch, but if you've been reading, you should be fine! And, everything on the midterm/final study guide is the EXACT same thing, she will not give you tricky stuff. So just study! Lecture sucks -- she some what sucks (However, she is very knowledgeable about the material) what we learned is GREAT! If you want a lazy class, don't take this. if you want an easy A, don't do this. If you want to learn, take this. If you like to learn about women, inequalities, chicanos, immigrants, etc. take this.
She’s the kind of professor you either LOVE or absolutely HATE. I personally DISLIKE her. She is RUDE & Condescending. And no I’m not hating, or one of those students that sits at the back of the room on Facebook, expecting to get an A. I’ve gotten A+’s in BOTH of the classes I’ve taken with her. I do the work & get the A. But besides the grading aspect, she does not know how to teach. She lectures, puts everyone to sleep & then expects people to participate after she shuts them up with rude remarks. She cuts ppl off constantly & puts people on the spot for no reason. it’s like she gets a power-high from making ppl feel like shit in her class. Unfortunately she just got tenured so UCLA will have her till she died. WACK. BTW. her book is a JOKE. I read it & I know people who say that she copied & paste other ppls work & didn’t give them credit. All the Chicana feminist at UCLA know she’s a B&%$#%& for stealing peoples work. Anywhooooo.. I don’t want to sound more rude than I already did, but if your considering taking her class, sign up & then sign up for another class so you have a back up class if you need to drop her. Get ready for the ride tho!
