I really enjoyed this class and I feel like I came out of it with a better understanding of myself and the relationships I have. Hes very good a tying the material into real life. He knows how to make people comfortable. The class itself is very straight-forward and would be hard to fail. Show up, participate, and do the study guide.

He puts on a tough impression, but if you take the chance to discuss things with him it makes the class a lot more worthwhile.

Irogoyen was an amazing professor. He makes students feel really comfortable in his classroom which is super important. I took his interpersonal communications class at CSM and got an a. The only things we got graded on were really just the quizzes which he gives study guides for exactly what is going to be on them.

Great Person. For me, the funniest professor I've ever had. However he is super line ant, he won't forgive you if you missed something, not even the 10% penalty, he won't give you ... Also, the last speech outline will b the hardest and for some reason, he pushes the assignments a lot. Like I mean He CAN give us more time to do our outlines but

Awesome guy. You learn a lot about the subject from his fun lectures, but get ready to read the mediocre textbook.

Great professor! Makes expectations VERY clear - 3 tests with questions in the textbook, 3 speeches. You have to show up for all days that speeches are being given. Speech outline guidelines are very clear in class and in the book. He's funny and will help you out if you ask for it and ask for help in a timely manner. Only HW is speech outlines.

Comment:
I suggest you avoid taking this teacher. He comes to class looking miserable everyday. He wastes class time on bs. He is no help, and does not teach speaking techniques. If an unfortunate event happens where you can't come to class to present a speech (even though you still can the following class) he will purposely fail you. Very unsympathetic.

Fermin's class is awesome. He tends to use his personal life quite a lot as examples for the topics we're learning, but it works. Lectures are clear. Gives a study guide for tests which are pretty straight forward and easy if you pay attention and show up to class. Likes to have conversations in class instead of a straight up lecture, which helps.

Makes it obvious that the textbook is an essential item you need to use to help yourself pass the class. The quizzes are hard, at times, but it gets easier when you continue to take them. Memorizingreviewing examples and vocab words will help ALOT on the tests. Make sure to check with him your grade and how you can improve it.

Comment:
Fermin was the most unreasonably pompous, self-righteous, sarcastic, arrogant, and self-centered professor I've ever had the misfortune of encountering at Skyline. Get ready to hear endless stories on his dissertation and his journey on becoming a world-renowned COMM professor. His booklessons become repetitive and useless. But "upward and onward"

Quizzes are a little bit hard, so you really need to pay attention in class, and probably skim through the book every once in a while. Thought I was gonna get a C or a B in his class, but he ended up giving me an A, he is full of surprises. Just show up and pay attention, and he will pass you.

Super funny class but depends if the students are willing to communicate. Tests are easy, same questions as in the book. For speeches I think he takes off points for incorrect formatting and if you're missing sources. And also, presentation-wise, I think he pays attention to 3 things. Eye-contact, hand gestures and voice.

Easiness:3 speeches 2 tests no homework. Clarity: He write the book. Follow his format. Helpfulness: Ask questions he's already willing to help. Just show up to class and do the work like a good college adult. This is not high school. This is an Easy class.

Fermins a pretty cool teacher. This guy knows what he's talking about. Just show up to class and study the book questions. Your grade is needed on midterm, final, and three speeches. I was nervous at first but this guy is super cool. Makes everyone feel really comfortable. Thanks a lot Fermin, Dr. Fermin to you freshmen.

I took his class FAll 2012 and got a B. Pretty easy class, reads from textbook, quizzes on each chapter, 3 tests.Quizzes were mostly take home. Tests were take home.Not many students participated in discussion so the class was a bit dry, and he would get irritated because of the lack of participation.

Easy A...He wrote the book & test ?s come straight out of the end of chapter ?s. 3 speeches & plenty of in-class tim to revise & practice! Hate public speaking but he made it pretty painless. I also recommend taking his night class, he seemed to like us better than his day classes which may have something to do with the variation in his ratings!
