This class is a hybrid course, so half online half in class. I thought this was going to be an easy A but his online exams are ridiculous. I read every chapter and took about 5 pages of typed notes for each and still averaged a high C on each of them. Lots of assignments and a 20 minute …more presentation/report due at the end of semester. less

This is is probably the worst teacher I have ever had. The class was hybrid so half was in class and half was online, whenever we did attend class i learned nothing. He had a very strict attendance policy so if you miss more than 2 classes you fail, no questions asked. He also reguired writing …more assignments each week and graded them ridiculously. less

Great teacher, made the class interesting and fun. Always very helpful. Assignments and quizzes are hard, but if you are computer savy and read/study the material, could be an easy A.

This guy is awful. Tons of useless writing, minimal feedback. A paper a week as though I were in grade school and writing on topics that are a total waste of time. He's rude, he demands you meet deadlines but grades whenever he feels like it. A lot of work for nothing--avoid if you can.

I received an A- in this class. If you do the work, and on time, you'll do fine but not without a lot of attentiveness and hands-on work. But, expect him to get on your for turning in an assignment late -- and deduct from your final grade for it.

This has been the absolute worst online class I have ever taken, and I generally enjoy them. Herb is an awful teacher. Everything is so spread out, due dates are ridiculous. There are so many pointless assignments that he grades really hard on. I know this is college be he was way too tough of a …more grader. DO NOT TAKE THIS MAN less

Coming from a double major in WCOB, this has been the hardest class I've had. I'm a deans&chancellors list student and I'm struggling to make a B in here, that's how hard he makes this class. He is the least flexible professor up here and kinda seems like he doesn't want you to do good in his …more class. Do anything you can to avoid taking Herb's class. less

This man was by far one of the hardest professors I have ever had. I devoted every day of first summer session to this online class. He grades extremely harsh, doesn't give good grading criteria, and is difficult to communicate with. Please do not do this to yourself. I tried to get out of it and …more couldn't. less

For someone with a PhD and teaches a communications class, he is not very good at communicating instructions. Very rude when giving feedback and speaking to students and doesn't even follow the formatting that he grades so critically on. Unnecessarily harsh grader for what is essentially an English …more 3 online class. Not set up to succeed really. less
