It was an awesome class Mr. Larkey is very passionate and the class was very fun and easy. The book was required for the tests.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class/professor is a relatively easy grade. He is a decent guy, passionate about his field. He is very relaxed about how he runs his class, which could mean the loud/obnoxious students can sometimes run the show... Interesting topics covered... as opposed to some other commenters, no illuminati or aliens were brought up in my class.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Do NOT take this class if you are going into the social service field or if you actually want to learn about sociology. Larkey is a nice guy be he is a horrible teacher (which is really sad since he actually likes "teaching"). I would only recommend this class to people who need an easy social science class.

SOC 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Most ridiculous class I've ever taken! He is a nice guy but he spent all class time talking about the illuminati, aliens, and the Rothschild family, and he never mentioned anything from the textbook. He actually said that nothing in the book is true because it is written by "them", whatever that means. This class was a huge waste of money & time

To get a 4.0 you need to show up to every class and get yourself to participate. You need the book only for the open book tests. This class is mind-blowing and the best class I've taken out of the 55+ credit classes I have so far from Pierce.

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is awesome! I love his personality. He really gets you to think outside the box. You only need the book for tests because they are all open book. He also shows movie clips as well. As long as you show up everyday bring your book for tests you'll pass! Overall great professor! I'm going to take the 200 level course he's offering as well

SOC211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Class did not seem to have any structure; lectures turned into meandering, irrelevant discussion often. All tests were open book. Easy class, but not one to take from this instructor if you want to learn something.

Landon Larkey is a great instructor, his class is interesting and informative almost like a therapy session and helps you understand more about the ppl around you and yourself. If you're into psych, phil, sociology and enjoy hearing/sharing personal experiences & viewpoints, this class is for you.

I think he is a wondeful teacher! He takes his time when he is teaching and doesn't give homework. He teaches in a style that gives the student a chance to get a solid A!

soc101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Mostly shows movies/clips. Short lectures. No real motivation to even read book since tests are open book. Good for an easy A, but not for actually learning subj. He's in it for an extra paycheck. Doesn't take the time to even try to learn student's names or even teach. Just passes around attendance sheet- lots of students leave soon after signing.

Great teacher that cares more about you taking interest in the subject than packing you with homework and hard tests.
