Comment:
Lots of lectures. As you go through the videos you can fill out the homework. However, many of the homework questions you actually have to research answers to online. Exams are the same way. It is not difficult, just time consuming. There are 3 essays (1-3 pages double space), grades easy, just put in the effort. Overall a great guy and great class

Loved this class!Dr. Bushway posted lectures/slide shows and then there was a 10 question or less homework assignments (just a word document with questions on it) that got turned in each week. He made you researching the topics yourself to get answers. Tests were just more in depth questions. Love his teaching style. Great professor!

This was such a wonderful class! I learned SO much and the way Bushway has this class set up is so clear and straight forward. Sometimes the lectures seem long and a little dry, but it's all important stuff to learn. Bushway is also a very nice grader. All you have to do is put just a little bit of time into your written answers.

Great Prof! Very approachable, helpful, and organized. I have now taken two courses with him and plan to take another in the future. He gives you all of the material you need. The textbook is used more as a reference.

The professor is fair and if you miss an exam he will work with you so that you can make it up. There is a food intake project due near the end of the semester but there isn't a final exam.

This class was the easiest class ever, I think I only went to about 10 classes and passed with a B+. The only thing you have to be careful of is the suprise quizzes that he gives! Great class and super easy. Great teacher also, he can be dull but still great teacher.

A really nice guy who's 100-level class is super easy. He knows what he's talking about, though.

Great Professor. His voice may be monotone but he is really helpful and knows his stuff. His basic classes may be boring but thats because they are 100 level classes. Once you get into his upper level classes he is much harder.

Very easy but boring course. Never took the book off my shelf all semester and I got a B+. Very little work, just follow the instructions on all assignments, very straightforward. Read the practice exams, they take ten minutes and 75% of the questions are reused on the tests. Professor was extremely nice, knowledgeable and very approachable.

This professor has a monotone voice and the material was common sense too me-for this class you did have to write a few reports that were a few pages long, but still easy.

Comment:
Oh. my. God. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS. You won't understand anything he says because he doesn't know how to talk in front of people. If you do hear what he says, you'll fall asleep. Nothing of what he says actually goes on the test anyway, so you'll fail it and not know why. I can't believe this guy is actually a professor.

He is a wonderful teacher. His class can be a little boring at times but he is one of the nicest guy you will meet, and if you have a question or need help he very easy to talk to. The class in my opinion is easy also long as you study for the exams.

If you are a linear learner, this isn't the prof for you. He doesn't organize the lecture/slides very well. It is clear he knows a lot but doesn't transmit it very well - he tends to mumble and ramble, perhaps it is because he is used to teaching small classes?
