Comment: Overall, she is a very boring lecturer. Nevertheless, this class has so many different guest lecturers, it doesn't matter too much. Assignments and tests are fair. The material is interesting so despite her bad lecturing, it was interesting. Professor Rhew was more engaging.

Comment: Professor Firestone is really nice. Her lectures are interesting but the way she engages her students are not very great. Her organization for lectures are somewhat according to the order of topics she wants to touch on. She does care about her students and if they are having trouble, she does adjust her way of teaching to meet the level of the students. Her exams aren't hard if you study the study guides that she gives (which are usually close to what the exam will be like). Its a curved class so do well ;)

Comment: She's a boring lecturer and talks in a monotone voice, but her exams are easy and straightforward. Problem sets are graded a little nitpicky - so make sure your responses are as detailed as possible. Also, if you want an A, make sure you know the details, and not just the basics, for the exams.

Comment: Firestone was okay. She wasn't as good as Rhew and it was really easy to fall asleep during her class.

Comment: Fair exams, but boring, monotone professor. The class was not organized well either. However, professors were really willing to help students after all this, and problem sets and exams were fine

Comment: Firestone's lectures were dense and fast paced. The exam questions were for the most part straight out of the lectures.

Comment: This class is super easy for science majors such as myself because there aren't actually problems to solve, just answers to memorize, and because there are a lot of humanities majors weighing down the curve. I slept in lecture and never even downloaded the readings she posted, then crammed a day before the midterm and got a solid A. Problem sets are kind of a pain if you don't pay attention in lecture though, and even when you do they questions are still really out-of-the-blue. No sweat though, this class is a cakewalk.

Comment: She is a horrible lecturer, but the material is not hard - she provides a study guide that is very helpful! Although she is dreadful at lecturing, the material is very interesting and makes it decently enjoyable.

Comment: Boring lecturer. She tries but I fell asleep 90% of the time. Homework grading really depends on your gsi. Very specific on answers. Tests are a graded with detail.

Comment: Easy class. The class covers very basic aspects of the environment, so it's a good intro class.
