Attendance is mandatory in both lecture and discussion, but if you're not one who loves to participate, just focus your participation in discussion and you should get full points. She passes a sign-in sheet around lecture, but you kind of have to go anyway because she doesn't post her slides online (so lecture is the only place to get the handouts and notes). It's not always the most interesting material, but I thought it was fine most of the time, and the weekly HW was always manageable. The tests are just a packet that you have to fill out, so pretty much all question types can and will be asked. The tests weren't super easy, but it was also hard for me to find a way to study linguistics. I learned that paying attention in lecture, especially when she's going over her worksheets / handouts, prepared me well enough for the tests. There's one midterm and one cumulative final, so at the end of the quarter I just reviewed all the worksheets she gave us throughout the 10 weeks and I was just fine.
