You may want to take the beneath ratings with a grain of salt - this guy writes his own reviews. He's a snake. All he cares about is the money coming in and who can pass the bar exam to help the school's reputation improve a little bit. The exams are graded anonymously so you will be judged in how you appear in class. Avoid this all togather.

He is a really nice guy. He is just a REALLY HARD GRADER!! All of us thought it was the easiest exam we have ever taken in our lives and when we got our grades back it made our stomachs drop. I'm sure that there will be some dropouts after taking this class. I did get my moneys worth though and learned a ton! Just know your stuff and work hard.

Cercone is a straight baller! Dont even bother with the books. Just go to class and take GOOD notes. That's all I did, and all I studied was the notes I took from class and got an A-. Not too shabby eh

Best professor at cooley. Incredibly intelligent, and relays the material to a point through repetition and power which will result in the information being engraved in your brain. Exam is not bad. All essays. Tough grader.

Comment:
He is my best professor thus far! I learned so much from him, and he really taught me how to apply the law. I hate civil procedure, and have no interest in lawsuits. I got 99 out 100 on his exam, just because he taught me so well! He is always willing to help.

Prof cercone was the best prof I ever had, very friendly, helpful and replies to your your Q and A promptly without any delay. If you need his help he will be always there no matter what. You may give up, but he won't. If you have prof cercone for Civ pro, you are very lucky to be in his class. I wish I have prof cercone in civ pro 2.

If you're reading this and you're wondering about what Cercone will be like, GIVE yourself a high five, because you scored a class with *the best* professor Cooley has to offer. Tons of legal experience to impart, and he genuinely loves what he does. Class is entertaining, but he expects the best from his students - LEARN IT, DO NOT OUTLINE DUMP!

He is a good teacher. Dont be under the assumption this class is a guartaneed A because there are no multiple choice. You either give the law back to him his way, or he wont give you ANY points what-so-ever. DO NOT get your information from ANY OTHER SOURCE - take dilligent class notes - and meet with him as often as humanly possible.

Dean Cercone is the best teacher I have had so far here at Cooley. He gives you everything you need to get an A in his class. Listen to what he says and there should be no way you get lower than a B! He will meet with you as many times as you need!

don't be fooled, dude is a very hard grader, he lets on like its all cool and easy. He HATES outline dumping so be short and to the point no fluff, homeboy dinged me for it really bad. For those of you who believe he's a gentleman, I don't see it he seems like another NYC shark to me but more power to you.

Dean Cercone is the best professor ever. His lectures are not only educational, they are entertaining. You are lucky to learn from the best trial atty. CIV PRO IS THE BASE OF VIRTUALLY EVERY SUBJECT. Do NOT groundlessly complain just because you fell. Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped. Fix what you can and move on. Good luck.

Dean Cercone is a Great Great professor. His Twens are all you need. dont buy any outside help. Base your outline off of his twens, do his problems and practice his past exams. Exam was all short essays. Look out for a tricky question. There will be at least one. Others should be straight forward. Got an A. If you get him your extremely lucky

Doesn't read your test properly, pretends to be helpful, but if you have the answer wrong he won't correct you, ambigouis question answering and plays favorites. This is not high school and we pay too much for a sub-par education. But the Civ Pro department is lack luster, so you lose either way. Conflict of interst with appeals, he is final judge.

Professor Cercone is absolutely the MOST HELPFUL professor I have encountered yet at Cooley! He says he is your tutor and he means it! He will NEVER make you feel stupid and he will bend over backwards to help you. If you have him as a professor be very thankful because he has a knack for teaching like none other!

The exam for us was all essay, no MC. You may think this will raise your grade if you bomb MC, but don't count on it. The exam was straightforawrd with no nity picky questions; everything on the exam was relevant. You may walk out feeling like you just got an A- or B, and be shocked at your grade. The curve for our class was fair.
