do the study guide and you will be fine. The study guide directly related to the test. tests had a few application of theory questions but pretty straight forward.

Very easy course. If you read the professor's lecture notes and review online quizlets, you should be fine. Attendance is not mandatory and lectures can be pretty boring, so lots of people don't show up. Professor gives extra credit sometimes when many students don't show up. If you bother to put any effort into this course, you should pass easily.

Very monotone and boring professor. He knows what he is talking about, but retaining the information said in class is near impossible. Luckily, there is online material for his class and his study guides are helpful before the tests. We only had three exams counted towards our grade, so you couldn't afford to have ONE off day.

His lectures are somewhat dry depending on the day. Luckily he doesn't take attendance. He gives you his notes from each lecture and study guides but your grade is only based off 3 tests.

As long as you come to class and write down notes here and there you should be fine. Took his class during a summer session, and it was way easier than the one online with Yulcin. You have 3 exams, and you write two essays on topics you talked about during class. You dont need to get the book. I honestly looked up most of the topics online.

Decent but boring lectures, you really don't have to go. There are 2 midterms and a final and he gives you a bank of questions for each of them. Even though you have the questions you have to make sure your answers are detailed and there are examples. Gives you the slides and all the answers are basically on there.

Graded on 3 tests & 1 paper (40%). Teaches w/o a microphone so even if you sit in the front you probably wont get what he's saying. Study guide is vague & doesn't help you on the tests, I thought I REALLY knew the material and made a 70 on the 2nd exam, so just hope you luck out by finding the right quizlet. I don't recommend, but some like him

Ferguson is an interesting man. He's funny, yet condescending. His lectures are boring and he tends to jump from topic to topic. He hates phones and people who don't listen/respond to him. He's an extremely easy grader on papers. His three exams are online if you look hard enough. Attendance isn't mandatory, but it helps if you go. Take him

Mr Ferguson was a good professor. If you show up to the lectures you'll be guaranteed to pass. His tests are word for word. He even posts notes from each class. His dry sense of humor is pretty hilarious too. He's awesome. Easy A and did not use the book just showed up to class. Also gives bonus points to past tests if you show up to class.

I loved this class. Ferguson is a unique man and the way that he teaches gives you a full understanding of business ethics. It relates to my own understanding of general ethics. Also he has a dry sense of humor but he's hilarious about it.

Class is boring, but there is no grade for attendance. 3 tests are the only grades, but there are study guides on Study Blue and Quizlet that are pretty much word for word the tests, so if you know those, you should easily get an A.

Dr. Ferguson has a hilarious dry sense of humor, but he can come across as condescending if you ask questions or disagree with him. Class is a super easy A if you pay attention or read the book (either one). He also gives extra credit on days no one's in class.

Only 3 Exams, and that's including the final. No homework, no classwork, no papers, no quizzes, no in class assignments. I wish he would have given us alternative assignments to help improve our grade.

Spends some time in class making fun of students in class who like to talk about their ideas all class instead of the course material. That being said, he's a great professor. One of the most interesting professors. The course material really matched my ethical belief system, so it was an easy class. The lecture can get a bit long at times.

Dr. Ferguson is hilarious. One would expect an ethics course to be dull and boring, but his humor about the topics make you enjoy the course. There's never a class period where he doesn't make you laugh at least once. He's very knowledgeable and I would definitely take another one of his courses.

Comment:
The guy is a socialist and some of the things he said were not accurate. He spends the lectures finding a way to bash capitalism and conservative ideas. If you notice the entire course is structured that way. Every bit of the 'ethics' is the far left wing platform. That said, he knows his stuff and is a very good professor. Take him!

Doesn't give the answers before the test like he used to. The first two tests he gave half the answers, and the final none at all. My advice would be to go to class and take notes and listen. Lectures aren't bad, kinda funny guy.

He does not give you the answers to the tests anymore. For the first 2 tests he gives a sample quiz of half of the test. Must go to class to get all the information. Very boring professor. For the final he gives a study guide but no answers or sample quizzes.
