Comment:
Professor Smith is a well respected businessmen & professor. He gives clear agendas and expectations. You are expected to participate and will be called out in class. Exams are brutal but it's more the class/textbook than he himself making them as hard as they are. Class is part psychology which makes it difficult. He is organized and structured.

Comment:
Bill is a decent guy and does a good job of teaching the material. However, he thinks very highly of himself and is prone to going off on irrelevant tangents during lectures. Ultimately, you either love him or hate him. Overall, as long as one reads the book and shows some interest in the material, this class is a relatively easy A.

Comment:
One of the best profs I've had at GV. He always kept lectures interesting and I took a 6-9 so that is no easy task. Tests are decently difficult but he gives you terms to study and they help a lot. Big group project seems intimidating but it is super easy and he grades it fairly. 10/10 would take again

Comment:
Bill Smith is a great professor. He owns his own company so he has a lot of real-world experiences to share during class instead of just teaching right out of the book. He does stray from the curriculum from time to time, but he makes up for this by sending out a comprehensive study guide (around 50 pages!) that goes over everything in the test.

If you want an easy A, this is the class for you! Only downfall is that you have to listen to him brag about himself during the entire semester.

Best teacher i have had. I am a junior that has gone to three different universities and Bill is hands down my favorite teacher I've had. Doesn't use the book, uses real life stories/experiences. Participate and put a little work in and you'll get an A and learn a lot!

One of the best profs I've had at GV. Makes class interesting. Has a sense of humor so don't take if you are easily offended. Tests are straight forward and he is very helpful. Slightly boring topic/class, but he does his best to make it fun.

He was a great guy. He owns his own business and is very successful. Knows what to expect in the real world, and gives great advice. I would take his classes anytime. Most helpful, dedicated prof I have had in college so far, and I have been in college for a LONG time.
