Review by

Prefessor Novak knows a lot about sociology but he is very boring. He assigns multiple readings and once you get to class he just talks the whole period. It's hard to take notes in his class because he talks very fast and just writes one word on the board. He shows a lot of videos that you will …more have to analyze. Only one paper and final. No tests. less

While he is very strict about no phones in class, as long as you show up and participate you'll do well in his class. If you like no test and easy, one paragraph papers then this is the class for you. It's an easy A as long as you don't mind the papers. great professor, very knowledgeable

He isn't a good teacher. Straight forward with what he wants. His class is an easy A if you do all the work, show up for class and participate.

Rambles but has some interesting insights. Students are just a number to him. Once a week you read an article and write 1 paragraph on that. Grades 2 papers, midterm, final and those weekly paragraphs. Really need to listen to jot down notes because he doesn't write much on board. Gives NO feedback …more at all on papers. Straightforward guy. less

You're just a person in a seat to him, he doesn't even know my name. Gives absolutely no feedback on papers and allows for no defense of your work. He's just not a warm/kind person, especially compared to other amazing professors I've had at Hofstra. If you can, take someone else.

The class is ALL lecture and very hard to stay awake. Grades are based on tests, reading memos, and essays. The reading memos will definitely help your grade but he is a tough grader when it comes to the essays.

Bring a matress and a pillow to his class because you will pass out from his boring lectures. His tests are basically impossible to do well on even though he gives you a review sheet which is no help at all. This professor is horrible and I would advise you to stay far far away if you are looking …more for a class that you can do well in. avoid this man less

The only way to get an A in any of Novaks classes is to be Albertson Einstein. You may want to invest in a tempurpedic pillow to bring to class because his boring lectures will put you right to sleep. He gives you a review sheet for midterm and final but they are useless because the mult choice …more questions are so incredibly hard to answer. AVOID less
