I personally loved Dr. McPherson. He really makes you work hard for your grade but it's so worth it. If you need help just go to his office hours and he tells you what you need to do. Don't fall behind, it's easy to get lost and behind. Stay on top of work.

Business 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

This professor is extremely frustrating and hard to understand. You basically have to rely on yourself and the help of your peers to learn the material because he doesn't teach much or well. Pretty much all of the work in class is busy work, it's easy but very annoying. Make sure you study because quizzes can be pretty difficult. DO NOT take him!

HBUS 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

McPherson is very disorganized and unclear. He is picky and gives a lot of homework and projects. Tests are online so it isn't too bad. If you keep up with the work, you can definitely earn the A, but it was my most work-intensive class by far. He is a funny guy but you probably won't understand 90% of what he says.

Dr. McPherson is a great teacher. He tries to scare you at the beginning but he is really funny and really cares for the students. He offers lot of little extra credit assignments so students do well in his class. If you do the homework you will do fine. He does talk very fast but you get used to it. He is a great teacher!!!!!!!!!!

hbus101 btst105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really funny and genuinely nice guy, but is very incredibly disorganized. Can not keep any of his own assignments straight. If you don't do stress, you can't take his course. Talks fast and rolls over words. Emails are confusing. 2You will never know what or how to do something literally 10 minutes until you have to turn it in. Avoid if possible.

Btst 101-005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. McPherson talks too fast to the point where you cannot understand him. The assignments were confusing and not addressed to the point of full understanding. He is a below average professor and I do not recommend taking this class.

Bus 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor I've ever met. Disorganized and cluttered. If you actually care about knowing your homework and doing it! He will change it the last second! AVOID AT ALL COSTS! He's scatter brained and has also rushing around. Tells some people this is due, others that it isn't. He's so confused and you just hate going to class

I learned a lot in this class, but not from Dr. McPherson. If you don't do well with stress I would advise you not to take this course. He is very unorganized and doesn't discuss some of the assignments that are due. He expects you to check noodle 24/7. He is very scatter brained, I leave with anxiety after his class every day.

McPherson is a really nice, funny guy. He moves really fast so as long as you go to class and keep up it's an easy A or B.

BTST - 321 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Currently enrolled in this course online. Instructions tend to be very vague and confusing (different syllabi, resources, assignment instruction everywhere). Very understanding of technical issues and very easy grader. Just pay attention a lot and stay posted in the message board.

I would definitely recommend taking this class with Dr. McPherson. The beginning is very fast paced, and there is a lot of work throughout the semester. Also, you receive 5 points for attendance. There are also easy ways to earn points like turning your slides you took notes on for the book. There is a lot of group work, and the tests are online.

He's an all around funny guy. Likes to crack jokes constantly throughout class to keep it interesting. Sometimes, it is hard to understand him because he talks so fast, but you get used to it. My favorite professor this semester. Does give a lot of course work though.

Dr. McPherson is awesome. He's one of the funniest profs I've ever had, and is an all around great guy. He does assign a lot of work, but no where near overwhelming. Often has classes online. I actually had a lot of FUN in his class. If you get the chance, take Dr. McPherson's class.
