Tons of homework every week based off reading and videos, BUT it's not turned in until mid-semester or even the end of the semester. No big papers, except a course journal. Tests are actually pretty easy, questions are literally the same questions from the 10 question quiz at the end of every …more reading. less

Review by

He makes you type out tons of journal notes which are basically copied from the text he has already made you read every week. Don't understand the point of that when the exam is open book. Unrealistic amount of work considering it is NOT a GWAR class.

Review by

Avoid. He's terribly disorganized, does not explain reasons for grading, is completely unrealistic in the amount of journal work he expects. All of the material is filled with typos including the exams. You will work really hard and still get a bad grade. It's frustrating and disappointing.
