Dr. Schneider is a great professor and knows his material. He presents everything in a way that is easily understandable and relatable. The book is crucial for success in the class. Assignments are very heavy and do require a lot of time and work. With hard work in the class, you can get an A.

Dr. Schnieder is a great professor that clearly outlines what he expects from his students. I heard horror stories prior to taking this class, I assure you that they are not true. He is a kind person and his class is doable. Read each chapter as it is assigned, I know it's hard but you'll regret not doing it! And ask for help if you need it.

He is honestly my FAVORITE prof. I have had him twice now, and am taking him a third time in the fall. ADVICE: Do the exam review, Take good notes, Read the book, and come to class. His class seems really tough but once you get an idea of how his classes work they are a breeze. Take him and put in the work, you will learn so much.

This is by far one of the best profs at SVSU. He is caring, and very informational. His classes are lecture heavy so be ready to take notes. READ THE BOOK WHEN ASSIGNED-DONT WAIT, TAKE GOOD NOTES, DO THE STUDY GUIDE AND MAP OUT THE ESSAY QUESTIONS. His exams seem like they are impossible but study in advance and you will be fine.

Great knowledgeable guy and his lectures are interesting! But EXAMS ARE TOUGH- you MUST read and attend class. Exams have essays that he wants to have 20 different details and be long written with little time to do that and finish multiple choice questions. He also calls out the person who wrote best essay after exams grades to read it to the class

Comment:
It was a little annoying at first that he would teaching on half of the chapter and expect you to read the other half, but you get used to it. His essays on his exams seem daunting at first, but if you write as in depth as you can on the subject, you should do fine, and he likes that better than you rushing to answer the whole question poorly.

If you do not buy the current edition of the book, and you don't read every chapter of the exam meticulously you won't know a third of the exams! He's a great professor, and he's very knowledgeable. I've enjoyed having him, and he makes lectures go by fast because your so interested in the content.

Everyone will tell you that Dr. Schneider is scary and you should avoid his classes like the plague, but NONE OF THIS IS TRUE. I loved his lectures, and if you put in the proper amount of effort, you'll get an A. Do not fear, fellow COMM majors, Dr. Schneider is not evil.

His lectures are interesting but long. There is 3 speeches and one paper. The tests are all about what he lectures on with some book questions. In class we get into group sometimes or it is a lecture setting. I would take him again!

He is a very laid back professor. I would take him again for another class. He is very clear when telling you what he wants and if you listen and participate its an easy A. You won't pass without a textbook.

Great class, make sure you are there or you will loose out on a lot of information. If you have a friend to take notes when you are not there you will be fine, but he does attendance for points. I would recommend him. He is very knowledgeable in his subject.

At first I hated Dr. Schneider's class because I had to work for my grade, but I ended up enjoying it. He is very clear in everything he wants from his students. He is now one of my favorite professors at SVSU. But I would never take him again, he is just too tough for my liking. Overall he is a really good professor and very personable.

Dr. Schneider is VERY knowledgeable and he has some great insight. That being said, his lectures are not very exciting and are sometimes hard to stay awake for. You will learn a bunch of great material for this class, especially if you're going to teach! It's worth it, just make sure to drink some coffee before you go to class.

Dr. Scheider is a great instructor - tests are a little difficult, but if you study and read the text book, take good notes in class, you will do well. Would take him again for another class

Pretty good professor! I enjoyed going to class, but pretty hard grader on papers and presentations! Make sure you follow the exact guidelines or he'll take points off. But as long as you follow those you'll be just fine!

I loved this professor a lot, he was probably my favorite one since i've been at SVSU. He made class interesting and the way he teaches things is very easy to understand. Super nice! For exams he puts study questions online that go over the book chapters. If you study those questions, that will cover the book portion of his tests pretty well.

He is an excellant teacher, and one of my favorite. He is not a teacher that will had you an "A", so you must put work in to earn it. Reading assigned chapters and taking notes will help a lot. Overall, a great teacher and I highly recommend.
