Just a bunch of Mumbo jumbo. 
Should do to do well...
Try to take the course if she goes on sabbatical. 
Should know...
It's totally random.  Never get papers back. 
Student Competency: Expert-Level
Student's Grade: A
Liked Instructor?: Disliked
Overall: D
WHat a complete waste of time and money.  The tests asked questions about some other materials, and none of us ever got one single paper or test back. 
Should do to do well...
Do not ask questions and don't expect to get any papers back.  The grade is pulled out of the clouds, and the tests are all T/F or Multiple Choice in graduate courses.  Plan to watch old youtube videos and to be alone while you're doing that.  No true discussion of ethics or psychology, just read the Ethics textbook and plan to take a test on some other book in family therapy! 

Just a complete ball of disorganized misery.  It is clear that this professor and this university just want to hand students the piece of paper (degree) at the end without doing the hard work of engaging, interacting, and educating thinkers and practitioners. 

Should know...
You have to smile and laugh at Dr.  Kelley, pretend she's charming, and kiss up quite a bit.  If you're bright, she'll be threatened and defensive.

Love this professor!  She knows her stuff!  Her classes are interesting - a combination of lecture, activities including cases and discussion.  I learned more from this professor than most! 
Student Competency: Expert-Level
Student's Grade: A
Liked Instructor?: Really Liked
Overall: A
This class was great!  The material covered was relevant and interesting.  Dr.  Kelley really knows the subject matter.  I learned a lot in this class, more than I thought I would.  I have a much better understanding of addiction!  I would strongly recommend this class! 
Should know...
Read the material and lectures.  The videos are great and interesting.  The questions on the final come from lectures.  If you do what is required and submit it on time you will get an A and actually learn something.
