PHI 1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is only easy if you take notes by hand and pay attention to everything he says. (no computers allowed). Make sure you ask atleast one question per class. Pop quizzes are annoying but if you pay attention and review notes before class, they aren't horrible. He is a great teacher, just a bit difficult.

PHI1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I got A's on all my exams, including the final and ended up with an A- in the class. I participated a good amount, however I don't think he was impressed. He makes you read the book a lot and you have to go to class because he gives pop quizzes. Not a bad teacher, but he's not very easy.

PHIL1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The content is, IMO, extremely difficult to grasp. He did a fairly good job explaining things. If you keep up with his website it makes a huge difference.

PHI1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Okay, his class and tests were fine, but I was still pissed because I got a B+ after having achieved a 98% test average. His class is not about content retention, but rather about participation, which I think is awfully silly, but oh well.

PHI1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Novack was funny, and I found the class interesting and fast paced. Unfortunately, he seemed to be standoffish, and he had a policy of deducting 5% off our grade for every time we were caught with our cellphones out. If you crave a lot of interaction, or you can't keep your hands off your cell phone, this may not be a good prof for you.

What a hunk. It was hard to pay attention because he is so dreamy. I love me some Dr Novak.

The readings were interesting, some harder than others.. but all you have to do is use the study guide he gives you, they're the same questions... easy =) And if you have Mohammad as the TA, makes everything easier. =)

He is a very strange professor but he knows his work. If you get Mohammed for a TA pay close attention because he goes over the study guide in discussion class and he give multiple examples that you could used on the exam. Exam questions most of the time come directly from the study so you know exactly what to study.
