Professor Markson is exceptional. She genuinely cares for her students' success, and she offers helpful resources to complement her classes. She grades quickly and communicates deadlines and goals in a straightforward and concise manner. She also offers study guides for exams.
He was an excellent professor at the start of the semester, but then Covid-19 struck, and he started to ghost us. He stopped lecturing and he wasn't so responsive. When a large number of students requested lectures, he declined. Due to the lack of lessons, an averagely difficult class became nearly impossible. He was unconcerned for his students' well-being. Thank God there was CASA.
Prof. Winston is deeply concerned about his students' well-being. When you're stuck on a project or a homework assignment, he'll always come to the rescue. He also helps us plan for our future jobs by giving us excellent career advice. Winston is such a blessing to GMU!
Prof. Fries was very energetic and he's clearly passionate about teaching! However, the lectures were average, and the recitations were where I learned the most. He would clarify concepts in lectures, but I already knew them from high school, so I didn't learn much.
I enjoyed Professor Alvarado's class. She's always very helpful and wanted her students to succeed. She encourages tutoring and meetings with her, for you to improve your grades. Unlike memorizing everything, she actually wants you to learn the course.
There are many things you need to buy with Professor Wilkinson's class like a clicker, textbook, and course reader. He doesn't grade your weekly work and essays, the teachers assistants do. Also, you're not allowed to use your phone in his class. Do not skip his class or else, you'll not pass. Overall, it's a great class, but definitely not an easy A.
Professor Ostroff's exams were hard. He did not offer any extra credit on assignments. His class is tricky with time consuming questions on exams. If you get an average score, you get 3.0 GPA. And if you stay below average you get below 2.9. He teaches well though, but the grade you'll get is not worth it.
I took Professor Nelson last Fall 2020. She's easy and nice. However, she doesn't explain enough in real-world terms. So, I don't think I've learned anything from her class. On the other hand, she offers extra credit and her syllabus is really simple. Also, she's great in answering questions and really accessible via email. Her adjustment to online classes was very well.
Professor Packard is a great teacher. But let me tell you this, you have to do your part. I suggest you make sure to attend her lecture classes, stay on top of the HW and always ask for help if you're confused. When it comes to exams, always do exam reviews and be clear that you understand it. She gives extra credit and allows you to use a grade card for exams though.
He's a sweet man, but he's not the best professor in the world. He reads his slides word for word, which will put you to sleep. His quizzes are based on the previous class you took and are fairly easy. His exams were also okay. If you take him, you'll have to teach yourself though. You should be fine if you read the book and take your own notes in addition to his.
Professor Shannon is a very straightforward prof. We had lots of busy work (letters, resumes, etc.) but no presentations in class. I liked how she organized the class so that it finished much sooner than the semester's end. The grading criteria are pretty clear as well! You can get an A if you complete the work, obey the rules, and apply her feedback.
Professor Cardillo is amazing! She's very helpful and knowledgeable. Her class is fun and engaging. She gives lots of opportunities for you to boost your grades. If you do your homework and practice, you will get an A. Her exam reviews are definitely helpful!
Prof. Dyer isn't a good prof! Her lectures are tedious because she speaks in a robotic manner. If you ask her a question, she will be impolite and tell you to read her notes/textbook instead. She provides review sheets and posts her slides online. It's simple to pass, but an A needs effort.
Best decision I've ever made! She is very enthusiastic about teaching, and her lectures are fascinating. Exams are manageable and not challenging if you read the powerpoints beforehand. Assignments are pretty fair and reasonable! You can get an A if you complete all of your assignments on time, review the powerpoints, and attend class.
Simply attend classes, take notes, and complete the homework, and you're guaranteed an A. She requires you to post your homework on a discussion board so that you can see how other people handle issues that you might be having difficulty with. The midterm and final tests are almost identical to the exams. She's honestly one of my favorite math professors.
I liked this professor because he was a good lecturer who has the best pacing in class. Exams account for 84 percent of the class, but you are only scored on the best three exams out of four. The only disappointment I had was that it seemed that I was wasting a lot of time doing arithmetic that a computer program could perform really quickly.
Super love Prof. Jones! Everyone holds a special place in their hearts for her. Her class is incredibly easy! You've got an A in the bag if you meet her halfway. She is very clear about her expectations in essay and how she will grade it. She's also the sweetest lady I've ever met! 10/10 would recommend her!
