Comment:
The prof is very flexible with due dates, and all tests are open-note and open internet. There is a textbook, but you don't really need to read it; you also don't need to watch the lectures. The midterm and final are take-home style, so you have a week and a half to do them. Nice prof. Easy course.

Had Mr. Pursley for Summer 2020, gives you 2 chances at the quizzes, exams only 1 attempt, I did not study or read too much and passed with a 85%. The only difficult thing is the diagrams do go to tutoring if you want an A. I appreciated that he gives extensions on all assignment for everyone. him accepting late work saved me.

I just took his class this semester for winter and it was hard considering that it is philosophy 6 and it goes by fast. I would absolutely take him again! He is so understanding and always leave you nice comments on your work. The course was hard, but he makes it easy enough for you to be able to pass as long as you're doing your work. Take him!!

Take it online, 12 assignments total. Very flexible, for example if you need more time on a paper or on another assignment just let him know and he will give you extra time. Only 2 essays (2-3 pages long) NO BOOK NEEDED! Overall pretty easy class. He will give you another try on his Exams if you are not happy with your grade, except for the final.

Comment:
He was a really nice proffesor that enjoyed what he was teaching. The only thing was that for me at least it was sometimes hard to stay awake because it was so lecture heavy. Other than that he did have quizzes, a group presentation, midterm/final and a paper. You really just need to show up and he will give you everything you need to do well.

The dude is too laid back, and the way he grades is confusing but helpful only on paper. Not a lot of papers or projects.

He is a great professor. He is very funny. I found his lectures entertaining and educational. He is also very clear on how he grades and is lenient as to when to turn assignments. Beware of the truth tables and the Venn diagrams the material is a bit difficult and confusing. Overall he is an awesome professor.

Easy A. he goes over the midterm and your final is a take home. His lectures do get boring but take a couple of key notes and you are fine.

Funny professor but speaks very low so anyone can barely hear him unless you are right in front of him, you don't have to attend class because he doesn't roll call but his notes daily are necessary, easy course

He tells a lot of jokes and laughs at all of them. he has some interesting views on the subject he teaches and explains his opinions thoroughly. class participation is never a thing because he talks so much. if you read the books and do assignments, you don't really need to show up. super easy class. he is an decent teacher.
