Marilyn Steely is a very old woman that should be in bed. Her class is so boring but you have to attend because she takes attendace. Her exams are hard but her quiz' are easy. Just rely on the text book and you will pass.

If you can read independently, then you'll make it in the 80-90's... If you can't (why are you in college...) but really, you cannot base yourself on her courses because you wont get much out of it. In western civ, it's not that bad, but in Anthro, you need to read the book!!
