Pretty easy class, gives a study guide that goes along with the book, study quizes and you will be fine. Was kind of a jack ass outside of class but in class was awesome.

Dr. Bearden is an awesome Professor. He is very clear about what you need to do to earn an A and gives plenty of extra credit opportunities. I simply made outlines of the chapters and studied that as well as my notes and quizzes. Easy A if you study.

Comment:
Dr. Bearden is not a bad teacher, but he goes extremely fast in his notes so bring a tape recorder if you are a slow writer because you do not have a prayer at keeping up. Test are not all that easy but only because so much material is covered. He is a nice guy and really wants his students to do well.

Comment:
He does power point lectures and sometimes goes real fast (so bring laptop if you write slow). Dr. Bearden is a very helpful professor. Exams are easy if you study study notes, quizzes, and material from the study guide. He gives pop quizzes and does attendence checks from time to time. Make time to attend 3 research sessions. Easy A if you study.

Good professor, cares about students and will go out of way to help. Must go to class and take notes. Tells you what you need to know from book. exams aren't too hard, and final is optional. Getting the cd from 11 edition of text will help you out greatly on tests and quizzes.

Cool professor. Classes can be a little boring, but he wants his students to succeed and he will do everything he can to help you. Go to class! He gives random quizes. The textbook is very helpful on his exams. Use the CD that comes with it. He grabs exam questions off the reviews on the CD. Optional Final exam. Very feasible A. Nice guy!

Dr. Bearden is a good professor overall. His lectures are a little dull but you almost always get out of class early. Uses quizes and attendance checks. Lets you drop some quizzes at the end. There is also opportunity for extra credit. Exams questions are ambiguous.

Mr. Bearden is an amazing teacher! His class is extremely easy and I loved it. The only "homework" is reading assignments that are sometimes followed up by a quiz. He announces the class before what chapter to read. These quizzes are used to check attendance and he drops lowest. I had 4 exams and he gave study guides for each. Extra credit opps.

Great professor, easy to understand... cute TA's (they were seniors). Tests were really easy as long as you took a little bit of time to study...gives you a study guide which makes it easy.

Interesting class. Good professor. Take the notes in class & read the chapters for quizzes (there are a lot of them, but he lets you drop). Uses questions from CD and quizzes on exams. Some of the material is dry but some of it is really interesting. Try to do the marketing studies early, they fill up quick! Have fun. He's a nice guy.

Excellent teacher. he's extremely nice and curves everything! the final is optional. his tests are hard if you don't study, there are "pop" quizzes which are hard as well if you dont study. he uses some of the questions on the textbook CD for quizzes and tests. I would def. take him if you are a MKTG major or even if your not.

Definitely a great choice for this class. Dr. Bearden is a really nice guy who really cares about his students (hard to believe with all the students in this class). Tests weren't too bad at all if you actually read and payed attention, and quizzes can be an easy opportunity for points, so just read before class. Attendance is required. Take him.

He will go out of his way to help you. He will help you get the grade you want. 11 quizzes that are tough, and moderate tests. Quiz questions reappear on tests. Drops 2 quizzes, curves tests, and gives PLENTY of extra credit opportunity. Stickler on attendance however. Take him, you won't regret it... and both of his TA's are HOT

Attendance quiz given regularly. Lots of notes. No homework. Four exams, with the final being optional, all multiple choice. I didn't use the book. Kind instructor, breaks up class to keep it interesting. Occasionally lets you leave early. I recommend this instructor.

Comment:
means well, but he is very condescending. definitely show up to class, he checks attendance in a 300+ person class. tests are a bit tricky, so make sure you study hard & re-read notes. study for the quizzes, and use them to study for the test because a lot of the questions are the same. he's an ok teacher, some of the subject matter is sort of bori

If you show up for class to take quizes and take decent notes this is an easy class. Not the most interesting in the world, but he usually ends class early and doesn't waste your time.

Dr. Bearden is a great teacher. Go to class because he gives pop quizes. Also, its a good idea to show up to class because if your overall grade is an 89 and you have good attendance he will give u the A. There our four exams and the final is optional. Gives tons of extra credit opportunities. Take this teacher
