Terrible exams 28 min to complete a 35 question exam and the material doesn't match the content taught. When asked to adjust this he flat out told the class this is how he teaches

Comment:
Efa is Efa. He has a well-deserved reputation as a maverick who spends most of the class on off-topic discussions springing from his lectures and for straight forward MC tests. This class was no different. He did lean on the textbooks heavily, sometimes more on one book, sometimes more the other, but his tests were easy for the most part.

Comment:
Efa is my fave. He basically just lectures off of his slides and tells his own personal stories, which help to understand the material. He stepped up his tests this semester, so you actually have to study, but as long as you read the textbook, and write notes in your own words, you'll do fine. Participation is also worth 20% of your overall grade.

Comment:
He basically just monotonously reads off his slides in class, and he posts them online far in advance so it really tempts you to skip class because you can learn it on your own without having to listen to his tangents and personal stories, BUT he plays u and makes attendance worth 20%. His classes are a great place to catch up on other homework.

Efa is one of the best profs I have ever had he is so laid back. All you need to do is read the textbook then review your notes and you will get great marks!

His tests are literally so easy. Read the textbook, take notes, follow the slides and you are good to go. If you put in the effort, this class is definitely an easy A! I wouldn't depend on his lectures though.

Comment:
Would not recommend Etoroma. He talks more about his personal life and where he likes to eat than he does Sociology. Has really disorganized slides and is all over the place. If you want to do good in his class learn from the textbook or somewhere else, do not depend on his notes and lectures. Really nice and funny, jokes are better than lecture.

Majority of his tests are whats on his slides and his slides are always accessible to students. His exams are also not hard and pretty straightforward and it's easy to pay attention because he makes the lectures entertaining.

Dr. Etoroma is quite possibly one of the best professors I've had in ALL of my sociology classes. I went out of my way to make sure he was my prof in all of my socio classes. He tends to ramble on and go off topic but its nothing harmful as what he tests on is clear as day. Just follow his slideshow and relate it back to the textbook and that's it!

Best prof i've had so far, attendance is 20% of your mark and it really helps those who need it . Study notes and you'll ace the course. Funny teacher which i believe every student should have, instead of a teacher who is boring and doesn't brighten up your day.

I took a spring class with Efa. The class was scheduled from 1pm -4pm not once in the 3 weeks did Efa go until 4 pm. he ended class on average at 2:30 pm. He wasted class time by repeating himself and telling stories. Tests were straight forward, but material is barely covered in class. Avoid if can.

I found the class interesting but did not enjoy the lectures very much. The exams were straightforward but the questions were not always fair and a lot of people struggled on the exams. Overall, not a bad class nor a bad prof, just not my favourite.

Great guy, full of funny stories, he makes lectures interesting, however, his tests have items out of left-field that were never covered in class or in the textbook, so if you can think your way through questions unrelated to what was taught, take this course, if not, stay away.

Worst prof ever. I'm sorry to hear he's returning after his leave. He barely lectures or covers material. One class he sat at the front almost the entire time and didn't teach us anything. Other times all we heard about were irrelevant personal stories, 'blackness', or Trump. Going into my third year this was by far the worst experience. Avoid!

BEST prof I've ever had in my life. He's absolutely hilarious and he's so straight forward. Read the textbook, read your notes, do your exam. Never gave any assignments and was very straight forward on all exams. Love this prof. Wish I had him for every class.
