The tests are really easy but the classes we're pretty boring as he just talks and talks on and on, doesn't really interact with students. Read the book and go to class and you'll get an A.

Make sure you read the book and you will pass the tests, they are extremely easy! Braddock has a good sense of humor but his lectures are a little unorganized and hard to follow sometimes. But as long as you read the book then you should be able to follow what he is saying. Great Class.

Classes are boring but the tests are really easy. Professor Braddock has an amusing sense of humor but his lectures lack structure. Read the chapters and there's no way to fail the class.

Comment:
His lectures are horrible-READ the book so that you know what he is talking about. Each test covers two chapters; 4 tests total w/ lowest score dropped. Two exams & a final. Questions on each are easy if you read. Attend class to catch what parts of the chapters are important; 3 extra credit opportunities. READ the book.

If you read the book and listen in class, you will get an A. Lectures can be boring but he really knows what he is talking about. No HW ever but reading. 4 tests and 2 exams and the tests are super easy. Drops the lowest score of the 4. Gives out up to 3 chances for extra credit. Not that fun of a class but not hard at all.

He knows what he's talking about. His lectures are boring, and he talks really fast. His tests are from the book and his notes. No homework! Most of the class was failing i got an A though with the help of a tutor and i like history.

This class was fairly easy. There are no homework assignments except read the passages he assigns. There are three exams and then a final. If you stay awake in class and take notes you should pass the class.

Comment:
I really liked him as a person, but not so much as an educator. You can tell he knows a lot about what he teaches, however he does not have the best methods of conveying it. I ended up with an A- though I have no idea how. His tests are crazy but he is very fair when grading papers.

Prof. Braddock takes some getting used to. I hated him in the beginning but after forcing myself to go to class, found that he actually has a rather funny sense of humor and really knows his stuff. He likes his topic and teaches it with an air that he himself was there. He cusses some but likes to tell good stories. He's cool.

Professor Braddock is a man who really knows the material that he is presenting to the class. He is an easy going guy who offers many extra credit opportunities. He is the first to admit the test will be difficult. He doesn't write them, rather he buys them from a company. Very easy to talk to and the class goes by quickly. Not my favorite topic.

He is awful! He makes class interesting?! Are you kidding! This guy is horrid you can hardly understand him 90% of the time the other 10% is him going off on tangents relating nothing to the class. This guy is awful and the course as a whole is horrible. Does not help that the subject is very boring. If you take him be prepared to teach yourself.

Braddock is a funny guy. I find history mostly boring but he makes it pretty interesting. He knows alot!! And loves to talk, he cracks some jokes which are kinda funny. He does stray off topic, and he loves to tell stories that you wont need for the test but are interesting. He tests however are mainly from the book. Only 3 tests, and one is droped

I absolutely love Braddock. Yes, he does stray off topics and sometimes its hard to take notes because you don't know what to write down, but just read the chapters and listen well. His tests are basically based off the book. You'll do fine!

Knows his stuff and tests 75% on lectures. He will stray off topic, but keeps the class fun and interesting. All you need to do is show up to class and listen to pass. He will drop your lowest test score (out of three), which really helped out a lot of his students. Great guy!

Typical history class, most students won't like it but it's something you have put up with for GenEd's. Braddock is a great guy who just can't seem to get to the point or stay on topic. Drops lowest out of three test grades; cumulative final and one movie review paper. Easy points in class. Overall not hard if you study and pay attention in class.

Lecture-heavy but pay attention because he jumps all over the place. Lots of reading, with an extra book review on top of the assigned texts. Friendly, funny, and smart. SVSU's History Department is one of the best around.

Just another general education class. Braddock seems like a great guy with a lot of experience but the material for HIST 100D is boring and he tends to stray off topic a ton. Don't take the college success course, waste of time and money. You'll need the book, very helpful! Hes a fair grader, you get what you earn. Exams are VERY easy if you study.

Braddock is a really funny guy. Some of the lectures were really boring, but if you take notes and read the text then the exams are pretty easy.

Comment:
I enjoyed the class even though the lectures were super long. He does get off of topic and you really have to pay attention to take notes. Reading the textbook isn't that important, skimming it will work. I did very well on the tests with little or no studying and only having read less than half of the assigned reading.
