Students enjoyed the course material however many found it hard to keep up with Professor Sanger as she tended to speak quite fast and never repeated subject matter to give students a second chance. This was an enjoyable course despite its shortcomings.

For the most part students enjoyed Professor Sanger as an instructor but they had various suggestions regarding course structure. Some felt the essay component was too heavily weighted (40%) while others were unclear as to grading expectations. A few students felt that two-hour lectures were excessive without a break and quite a number of students note that multi-media course material on short term loan in the library was inconvenient. Still, on the whole, students were satisfied with the course.
