Overall: A
You should expect a lot of work in this class.  Very few projects, but they are a lot of work if you want to do them well and get a good grade (and get good stuff for your portfolio).

One of the exercises I thought was really stupid at the time (and I think other students thought so as well)You should expect a lot of work in this class.  She had things like a teapot, four different glasses, silverware, wood, plastic, etc, and had us go around and describe the surface properties of each object.  It really starts to get you to examine the difference between two different very similar objects and try to think of how to reproduce them. 

Should do to do well...
Don't be late, don't be rude, and always consider opinions.  One of Bridget's biggest peeves is people that don't listen to critiques.  She will constantly push you and try to get you to improve your work.  I've heard of some students from the game department didn't get along with her since she is from film and they are very into the low-poly mindset, and she really knows what she's talking about. 
Should know...
To do well, get your assignments done the class before they are due, and ask for critique, because she will always notice things that you didn't notice.  She really opened my eyes to a lot of things that I never would have noticed.  She expects a lot, and will push students as hard as she can until you stop running. 
Student Competency: Beginner

Liked Instructor?: Really Liked
Overall: D+
If you work on your own, you can teach yourself a lot.  I did.  Don't rely on her.  She actually told one student in my class he couldn't do something because it was “probably too advanced for him” the guy got offended and did it anyways- very well at that and with her refusing to help. 
Should do to do well...
DON'T say you dislike Rhythm and Hues.

DO kiss her ass. 

Should know...
Just suck up to her.  Look her up on IMDB and sing her praises.  If your face is all over the SCAD website, that's a plus too.  If the school likes to show you off, she'll let you have free reign of A's. 
Student Competency: Average
Student's Grade: A
Liked Instructor?: Strongly Disliked
