Comment:
This class was very difficult and there were lots of quizzes and a couple discussion boards. It is a very hard class but each quiz has two tries. The final exam only has one try but is a compilation of all the true/false questions on the quizzes.

You have to work for it but it's a fair class. Theres exams, discussion boards and a final. He's very specific with the discussion boards. He lets you take the exams twice. A or B if you do your work.

Comment:
I highly recommend taking Mass Media Law through Dr. v online. There is a lot of material, but he let's you take each exam twice. 4 exams, 1 final, and 4 discussion boards for the 8 week class. No reason to not get an A or B with the exam retakes.

He's not really my cup of tea. He can be rude and downright mean. Not looking forward to taking anymore classes with him unfortunately i have to.

He's brilliant and fair. People say he's hard? Well, it's college. College is not supposed to be handed to you on a tray. I LOVED his class.

What a JERK! He is full of himself and does NOT care about you as a student or learner. Avoid his class. He is there just to amuse himself at any1's cost. He belittles you no matter your age. It's a speech class and I had to study more for his class than my A&P class and only made a B. He's a waist of money and time. He's an Unfair arrogant butt.

This guy is so full of himself!! Don't bother to try and ask him any sort of question pertaining to the material, or the studio, because he will most likely try to give you a smart-alecy answer that makes no sense. He smells like a bad of dirty laundry, and is so arrogant..he is absolutely NO HELP AT ALL!!!!!

He's really nice and for the most part really easy. We barely used our book and did a lot of things inside the studio. His voice is really funny and he has a lot of knowledge about radio.

Dr. V is very helpful and entertaining. His explanations are are detailed and precise. He also is very clear about what material will and will not be on the test. At first I wasn't too excited about this class, but I have learned alot and he makes it interesting.

Dr. V is cool, just don't get on his bad side. And please, please don't bring food or drink in the studio, you'll never hear the end of it!

Great personality, but very demanding course material. It's worth every bit though. You'll learn a lot from him, and he's great at giving useful tidbits of knowledge that'll help you navigate the maze of communication laws. Exams come from lectures.

His classes are tons of fun you learn a lot without realizing it. He's helpful in and out of the class room. His tests are easy if you listen to the lectures and pay attention, but that's not hard to do because he's an exceptional teacher!

8:00am in the summer is hard to take, but this man will wake you up and keep you interested. Just make sure you dress really nice for your speech. Great class!
