Overall, students found Professor McCrindle to be an enthusiastic lecturer, communicating the course goals very effectively. They appreciated her availability and approachability to answer questions in class and in office hours. Some thought that Professor McCrindle should grant the class a break in the middle of the two-hour lecture to allow the students to digest the informaiton. One suggestion students have is to use a newer textbook, as the current one is outdated.
