Comment:
I loved this class! It was difficult at times, but I gained a lot of knowledge by being in the class. I took it as a freshman and he is a lot easier that way. just be respectful. no phones, no eating in class, don't sit and talk the whole time. (I suggest sit in the back) other than those things, great teacher, and nice guy.

He lectures and sometimes it can get boring, but for the most part, he's a great guy and he'll make you laugh. His tests are easy and as long as you study, you should have no problem.

Dr. Alexander is the best Bible Professor at Harding. He lectures, and gives test. That is all you have to do, just pay attention and learn the material.

He has a very strict no phone policy and humiliated several students for breaking that policy. Very strict attendance policy for a very boring class. Worst bible class Ive had.

Horrible professor! DO NOT TAKE HIM! Class was not challenging, but boring. If he is your only choice, transfer. His class was the worst I have ever had in my life. He does not care about students or his own material.

I like Dr. Alexander a lot. If you show up to class, take clear notes, and don't fall asleep during the lectures, you'll get good grades. He isn't unfair; everything that is on the test was in the lectures and study guides. If you're taking BNEW 101 be aware that he only used the textbook the first week and a half though...

Comment:
Dr. Alexander is a super caring guy and can be funny at times. HIs class is pretty dull, but it's an easy A. You just fill out the study guide as he lectures and if you study it you'll do great on the exams. He is very old fashioned and does nothing online. He is pretty strict about cell phones and food. He only allows laptops if you sit up front.

I did fine in the class, but I always dreaded this class more than any others. The class was very dull, and he seemed very opinionated, particularly about this generation of students.

I wasn't a huge fan of Dr. Alexander. Lectures were very dull, but they were crucial for tests, which along with attendance make up your entire grade. Everybody is different, but I'd probably transfer schools if my only option was to take him again

Just not a good professor. Treats his students like they are in junior high. Outrageously strict on cell phone usage, no food or drink besides water in a clear container. Not helpful when it comes to wanting to do better in the class. Goes until the bell every day, sometimes over. Not an interesting lecturer. Rude and unhelpful most of the time.

Only grades are tests. The tests are straight from the notes, which he gives in a powerpoint during class. Powerpoints online and he doesn't post his class on canvas. He absolutely does not allow phones and is kind of intimidating as a professor but he is kind. Lectures are boring, he's opinionated and his jokes just make me feel sorry for him.

Comment:
I took Dr. Alexander for my first semester of bible freshman year, and both sophomore semesters. I received an A all three times. His tests are straight from his notes and gave some type of extra credit work during each semester. His study guides are extremely helpful and many people have made quizlets for them! I really enjoyed his classes!

Comment:
I really liked Alexander when I took him. He is good natured and clear but his class can get boring and feel long. If you show up and take notes, you'll pass easily. He sticks to the text and doesn't preach at you. It's been a few years and he still remembers my name and says hello in the halls, which just shows what kind of teacher he is.

Comment:
Do not take Alexander. He expects way too much out of a required 2 hour class. He is archaic and dull in his lectures, tests are extremely hard, and he doesn't even make his power point slides available to you. I absolutely regret taking him. I feel that, with another professor, I could have gotten a lot more out of the class.

Not a bad teacher, he knows his stuff. Just take notes and give him respect and he won't bet agitated with you. Your only grades are from tests. We had to read from the textbook on our own time and they were only 5 out of 50 questions from it on each test.

Going to the SI sessions really helps to better understand this class. The material can be difficult to comprehend sometimes, but the test questions come straight from his lectures. Don't be absent a lot and take good notes and you will be fine! He is a very nice and helpful professor too.

He is a really nice guy and he is very knowledgeable. However, the class can be boring at times--it takes him a while to make his point. It was easy and I did learn.
