*A 5 star workload is an easy workload; a 3 star is average; whereas a 1 star workload is extremely hard.
Comments:PSY 1455 - She is awful. Lectures are a waste of everyone’s time. Tests are nothing like the review she gives us. She doesn’t understand that it’s for non-science majors. It’s suppose to be an easy A but the average on the tests is barely passing. Take anybody else - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1455 - Heed the advice of those before me. She is one of the worst professors I've had at Baylor. DO NOT TAKE HER! - Grade In Class:DROP
Comments:1301 - This class was terrible. Professor Endl teaches this class like its for science majors. The mastering homework is pointless because what's on the homework is not on the exam (especially the math portion where we get no help on how to solve). The lectures are super long and dull (again almost like she's teaching a 3000 level class). When it comes to exams, Professor Endl will give us a "review" that does not help for the exam. The exams are so difficult and you will leave the room not feeling confident at all. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU WANT AN EASY WAY OUT. - Grade In Class:C
Comments:1455 - This course had the reputation of being the easiest lab science, that is until she took over. Lets start with the homework. She assigns the homework online. She picks the hardest questions she can. Half of them are math questions with absolutely no context on how to solve them. Most of the questions on the homework aren't on the exam, so there's really no point in assigning them. It's just hours of hard, unnecessary busywork. The lectures are long and unnecessarily detailed for an introductory course. You can stand outside the door after an exam and every single person walking out of the room will say that they failed and that was one of the hardest exams they've ever taken. It doesn't matter how many flashcards you make, how many times you go over the slides, how many times you reread the textbook, it is almost impossible to do well on her exams. Many of the questions have nothing to do with anything she's taught. The only reason I'm able to get a B is because of the lab. Avoid her at all costs. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1455 - This class is impossible. She posts a study guide and the lectures online but then the exams aren't even relevant to what is taught. I literally don't know how to study for her at this point because even if I study all the material on the study guide it won't help. I studied like 15+ hours for an exam and my friend who didn't even study did better than me...because her guessing skills are better. Literally everyone does terrible. I'm having a mental breakdown right now because the 4th exam is in two days and I just don't know how to study for it. I'm trying so hard in this class but I'll be lucky if I get a B-. There's no way to prepare for an exam. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1455 - She is a horrible teacher lectures are super boring none of the info she teaches is relevant. Homework is very challenging and she doesn't give clear instructions. I have emailed her on 3 different occasions and never got a response. Her test are fairly hard, all multiple choice, but they have large curves. All in all the class isn't too hard but you have to teach yourself all of the information. If you study really hard a B or an A is manageable but it won't be fun to do it. I would highly recommend not taking her if there are any other options. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1455 - It was an interesting class and she's very sweet, but lots of work! Dr. Endl is super cute and she's definitely interested in the topic. Her exams are very difficult, and the online homework is very important to help pad your grade. She does curve the exams but they still don't help others. I'm not sure, but she may give preference to those who attend her class. They are very difficult to follow, but going to the lectures is essential to the class. You will need to read the book and take really good notes to pass the exams, because she uses both for them. She does drop the lowest exam (excluding the final) but you'll need it. I would avoid taking her if you want an easy class. The lab component is a piece of cake (its the easiest lab I've taken here at Baylor), and luckily it will factor into your grade. - Grade In Class:A
Comments:ASTRONOMY - Please don't do it, take anyone else here. She is a terrible professor and not that nice to people who visit in office hours. She curves but even with it it is nearly impossible to do well and you will somehow leave having learned nothing. Don't do it. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1455 - Don\'t take this class and expect an easy A... Apparently this used to be a really easy lab science \"for non-science majors\" (that\'s literally what the course description is) ... but now you really have to work for a good grade.
Labs are relatively simple, but SO time consuming, lectures have almost nothing to do with the material on the tests, online homework ridiculously difficult at times (but if you buy the textbook, you can find most of the math answers in there + the majority of the other questions can be found on quizlet)... She curves like crazy because everyone does terrible on the tests. She provides \"study guides\" for the exams that are so broad and unspecific, but pro tip: study quizlet sets online from Russell\'s classes for the first exam (you probably won\'t do incredibly well, but it\'s your best bet) and after the first test (you get to take home the exam after you take it), look up the questions online, find quizlets with questions over the upcoming chapters and study those. That is literally how I\'ve learned everything in this class, and have done decent on the exams.
You really do need to put in effort to get the grade you want. - Grade In Class:B+
Comments:ASTRONOMY - She is very hard to understand. There is not a lot of homework, however her test are very hard. She gives out a "study guide", but does not actually put ANY of that on the test. Quizlet will be a lifesaver. Labs are easy, but take up the entire lab time. This is NOT an easy course anymore. - Grade In Class:A
Comments:Astronomy - Nice lady, AWFUL professor. Gives us ridiculous amounts of mastering astronomy homework full of math and formulas that she doesn't teach us and then tests us on something else. She blows through the slides and doesn't bother to explain anything during class, and her tests are ridiculously hard. If you are a humanities major like myself, don't make the same mistake I did and sign up for this nightmare of a class. Take geology or environmental science instead, just not this class. It is stupid difficult for a non-major class and it will probably cause my GPA to plummet. This is not a class that I should even be worrying about but thanks to Endl's horrible teaching, here I am. - Grade In Class:C
Comments:1408 - Don't do it!!! She might seem nice and cute at first but she can be so mean and doesn't really even want to help - Grade In Class:C
Comments:1408 - Ok, sweet woman, terrible teacher. She gives one hell of a curve but you will learn nothing, and honestly her mastering is freaking hard. She picks the hardest problems, and her tests are nothing like the mastering. The average one one test was a 22... she had to curve by like 60 points. But god it was misery, I don't know who else to take, but don't postpone your mastering, even if you have a chegg, they are long and hard. Just don't do it. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1408 - Endl is an okay choice to take 1408 with--you could take a better professor, but you could also be stuck with a much worse professor as well. She speeds through practice problems during class, so you will need to teach and understand the math/working-problems portion on your own. She is good with teaching conceptual material, however, and she relates it to a lot of real world events. Her tests were extremely fair, and usually had a 5-15 point curve. She took her questions from a large test bank from the Giancoli physics book, so doing the practice problems at the end of each chapter (just the level 1 and level 2 problems) helps a lot. Do the extra credit. It bumped me nearly 4 percentage points (86-->89.7, which she rounded up to an A). You will be tempted to not attend class, but trust me, you get more from going to her lectures than you think. As a person, she is very lovely and kind and always willing to help with questions about Mastering, the universe, or life in general. - Grade In Class:A
Comments:1408 - I don't understand why she's getting hate on here. She's such a sweet lady who is passionate about physics which made a very big first impression on me. Yeah, the tests were hard, but they are curved like 30 points so if you go in with some conceptual understanding of the subject, you will do fine. She gave out random one question quizzes during class to test your understanding of the lecture but they were only worth like 5% of the entire grade. I got a B in the class because I didn't do well on the first exam but her class is very doable. She has a very warm heart and a very good person overall. - Grade In Class:B
Comments:1408 - Ok she seems like a very nice woman, but she is a mediocre to terrible professor, she gives 1 question quizzes that are multiple choice and she will not drop any of them, she makes mastering impossible, picking the hardest problems, and then only makes them worth 10%. She has such tough tests she curves 50 points, but the quizzes bring your grade down so much, I had a B test average thanks to the curve, i had a 30 quiz average so i ended up getting a C- and now have to retake, do not recommend. Took mattingly the next semester and got an A with no effort, take him instead - Grade In Class:D
