Comment:
For his learning community, I loved his lectures. He goes into the right amount of detail and you can see his excitement on the topic. His powerpoints are notes for him to follow when he lectures, so take notes on the points that he orates. He was willing to give me an extension on an assignment when something came up in my life.

Comment:
I've had Dr. Frank for two classes AND he's the chair of my major's department. LOADS of readings but he will give you tips on how to organize the information. He grades papers on their "potential" and his constructive comments make you want to smack him. However, his bark is definitely worse than his bite and he is actually super caring.

Comment:
By far the worst professor in Pace. He spends majority of the class time talking about his trips to certain places or his life journey. He wont be clear about the topic. Gives tons of work and never clear about what he wants in your papers. During the exams he gives out review sheet with useless info.

Comment:
Frank has some much information he doesn't know what to do with it. He is personally offended if all attention isn't on him and therefore will nag you if you have your laptop out even if you are taking notes. Overall he is more annoying than anything else. Take this class only if you have prior knowledge on the subject.

Comment:
Being a history lecture, it does get boring but his personal stories about travel and research related to European countries is a bonus. Took him for European Renaissance. Just take notes, go to class, hand in assignments... Guaranteed A.

Dr. Frank is an incredible lecturer. Don't worry if you don't catch everything he says, since he provides detailed review sheets. If certain terms you need to know are not in your notes, just Google or Wikipedia them for the exams. If you know your term paper topic early enough in the semester, he might suggest a book or two for your bibliography.

This guy is the worst professor on Pace by far. He has given me my lowest grade thus far. He expects you to know EVERYTHING and if you don't you are in trouble. There is so much information to take each class. If you don't start studying right away just drop the class. Midterm and Finals are HARD.

Comment:
Very difficult, but you will be treated like an adult. Teaches as if you should have prior knowledge. Tells you exactly what will be on the midterm and final, but the term paper will be awful (expect to make 4+ drafts). I got an A by doing all of my papers on time and studying everyday, if you cannot make that commitment then he is not for you.

Comment:
Very intelligent man but basically goes off on tangents for the entire class. Always interrupts Prof Connerney and is very slow on grading papers. Make sure you have an interest in Asian history and a cup of coffee because the class can get really boring at times. The only positive thing is that due dates on reviews are flexible.

Comment:
1 midterm 1 final 1 paper (8-10 pages on Japan) (1 book review 3-4pages). He makes you get your own textbook. You could go to the library or pace library or if your like me, I emailed him saying I got a book on japan but I never did and saved me $$. Gives review sheets for midterm and final, WIKIPEDIA IS A MUST. Pretty boring. Sit and listen tohim

He teaches as if you already know the subject. You dont really learn much from his class because he goes off topic so much. To study for the final, you use google more than his lecture notes because he doesnt talk about half the topics. I highly suggest not taking his class

I would never take one of his classes again. He does not give a book but instead you are supposed to pick one out that covers the material. He grades RIDICULOUSLY! Totally boring and not too considerate. He goes thru terms too quickly and the class overall is not enjoyable.

Comment:
Prof. Frank is a joke. Everything that comes out of his mouth is with the intention to open a discussion or begin a story that relates to his personal experiences with the Asian culture. He does not teach, he talks about irrelevant things. He cracks himself up all class long and leaves the students feeling lost and helpless. DO NOT take his class.

Well, the class is one that is unexplainable as well as unpredictable. Watch the movies, get the books, and make sure you have your coffee and your cigarette before class.

Comment:
He and Prof. O'Sullivan have these inside jokes that leaves them in hysterics but makes the rest of the class question their sanity. Other than that, he's an intelligent guy but he can talk your ear off and make you want to fall asleep in class to the point that Prof. O'Sullivan sometimes falls asleep while Frank is teaching!
