Comment:
He is old-school. Do not expect a fancy powerpoint. Be prepared to write notes in class. highlight key terms he writes on the board. Discussion classes literally bump your grade up, so do the reading and participate in discussion. Advice - it's so helpful to audio record the lecture and review your notes later. Choose a comfy seat in class.

Comment:
His lectures were very interesting and he cracked a lot of jokes which made it very fun. We only had two tests. He warned us that people said his tests were tricky and he was correct. I studied my little booty off and I was still so stumped on a large majority of the questions which was frustrating because I knew the material. Still enjoyed!

Comment:
I really enjoyed taking his summer class. His lectures are interesting and he breaks it up with corny (but funny) jokes. There are only 2 test so its make or break, fortunately he does curve. Only a handful of the test questions are from the book and his test ARE tricky. Study your lecture notes thoroughly and you'll do well!

He is a great professor and I would totally recommend him. He lectures all of class but what he lectures is exactly what is on the test.

-usually has over 100 students in his class -he hates students arriving late, even 5 mins late -history teacher with the most personality in the school -there are 2 classes per week with him and one with his student assistant where you read a short story and talk about it. -exams occur every 3 short stories, 50 multiple choice and 1 essay

Attendance isn't mandatory, but the tests are based solely off the lectures. As long as you take good notes, and study the terms on the board then you can easily pass his tests. There are 3 tests and one big paper that makes up your grade. He is very old school, and lectures with no powerpoint so pay attention.

I found his class to be interesting. As long as you take notes and pay attention you will be fine. I had a HS teacher like him and found that color coding helps a lot. I do not think you have to attend class as long as you have someone you can bum notes from. I suggest getting the book for lecture but never used the text book.

Super funny professor, hates when people walk in late!! Go to his lectures and you will do good on the tests. There is a discussion class, that is part of your grade so just read the chapter and you just have to say a couple things about it. Very easy and doable class.

I didn't mind his lectures, I found him somewhat interesting. BUT whether I studied didn't matter, I still failed either way. I took his MW 10-10:50, which had an extra 50 minute discussion class. The grading system was terrible 50pts-sanction (2) 25pts- discussion/essay. It was hard to get full credit in discussion. I will avoid taking him again.

Comment:
He was ok. I found him to be interesting. However he gets annoy when people come in late. I did the class in the summer and we only had two test which kinder of make or break. He promised a syllabus which we never received. He is also very sarcastic . Overall I think he is an ok professor but would be my first choice.

The only day he ever takes attendance is on the first day, but don't miss a single day in his class. He gets straight to the point and tells you what to write. The notes are the majority of his test, so study well!

He gave scan-tron tests (worth half your grade) that were so old the paper was yellowed. They made no sense, and it was difficult to understand them. I never missed a class, took impeccable notes, read all assigned reading, and did very well on the essay portions and still only got a B. This teacher screwed up my 4.0.

This class was very difficult for me. Make sure you study weeks in advance because there is always lots of notes. He is a good teacher, there is just a lot of information.

He is a brillant professor. His class however was extremely difficult for me. Anything he writes on the board make sure you write down. Make sure to do good in the discussion classes and study the book and you'll be fine.

His tests are impossible. You basically have to read all the information in the textbook before the test and that doesn't even help. Doesn't give reviews for tests.
