Overall 2.3 Easiness 2.3 Workload 2.5 Clarity 2.2 Helpfulness 2.5

Most Helpful Review

I didn't listen to the flurry of bad reviews listed below because this class fit into my schedule, and it was the biggest mistake of my college career. If you value quality education that consists of a well structure class with a thoughtful, engaging and detailed professor who cares about your success... then do not take this course.

Her lectures are very loosely structured with no thoughtful connection to the exams. She basically shows up and blurts out everything that comes off the top of her head about each chapter, and then tests you with random information directly out of the book (most of which she never mentions in lecture), which basically means if you want an A you have to memorize every single detail on this EXTREMELY dense and complex subject matter. This is a lazy and, quite frankly, sadistic method of teaching. I have a 3.7 and have studied harder for this class then I ever have, and have never done so poorly.

Learn from my mistake and avoid this nightmare course at all costs.

Overall 2.4 Easiness 2.4 Workload 2.6 Clarity 2.4 Helpfulness 2.2

Most Helpful Review

She is one of the most unhelpful and condescending professors I've ever encountered. No matter what class she teaches or anything she's in charge of, do not take it with her. She doesn't guide you properly into understanding the material and when you do ask questions for clarifications, she makes you feel stupid and incompetent. She has no genuine concern for students at all which makes me wonder why she's a professor in the first place if she doesn't value helping students. She is super disorganized and is never focussed on one task at a time but go on tangents to different things. Despite being like this, she will openly and harshly criticize you for not knowing your stuff, when she ironically fails to even teach it to us. I have had my bad share of professors but at least some of them cared enough despite being bad professors. But, this one does not even deserve to be an educator, let along a professor or doctor.

Overall 2.4 Easiness 2.8 Workload 3.6 Clarity 1.8 Helpfulness 1.6

Most Helpful Review

Workload is fairly light, no textbook, readings each week on CCLE, with six 500 word reading responses due over the course. Two midterms, one is in week 10, plus a final. All multiple choice. Grading is extremely vague - an 'A' is the second highest grade in the class, so you never know how you're doing really. Mays is also the rudest, most unpleasant professor I've had - she's passive aggressive and plain mean to many students who ask questions. She also interjects her own accomplishments into every lecture, and not in a way that's meant to enhance the students knowledge; it's very much "look at how amazing I am and how important I am and how great I am." Work isn't difficult but she made the class unpleasant.
