BUS 54 Taken for Credit:No Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easy class and super nice teacher. Had an orientation for both classes (BUS 54 and BUS 40). Assignments sometimes don't give the correct page numbers and took a while to get a reply from him via email. But he sends you an email and thanks you for each assignment you submit. If you have the self control to sit down and do the work, take this class.

Excellent instructor in law and Business 54. Too bad he had to put up with lazy, mean spirited students who didn't study, got poor grades and then gave him a bad time. I respect teachers and when they go through

BUS040 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

On-line class. Very unorganized - syllabus did not match the on-line lessons. Syllabus gave all lessons and exams the same weight toward the final grade, but 3/4 through the semester he announced that grading would be 50% exams and 50% homework/lessons -- a big departure. And when pointed out he disagreed with his syllabus, or didn't read it. Smarm

BUS28 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

REALISTIC Review: Easy but useless class. Constant off-topic rambling. Syllabus extremely unclear. Wastes paper printing daily schedule per student. Expects wasteful paper printing for end of year assignments. Textbook only useful for 2 open-note tests. Not suggested for students actually interested in law. Suggested for lazy students.

Bus51 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

He talks alot during class about off topic items. He is passionate about life. He tries to relate experiences to the subject matter which helps. He had open book/notes for 2nd midterm and final but they were still very hard. If you attend all the classes and do all the assignments and extra credit you will get an A. NOT for lazy students.

Don't buy these comments. You won't learn anything from this guy. In class lectures, he just told jokes and his fortune. All the stories about how rich he is. We don't care how rich he is. You won't learn much. He is also very mean in giving marks and credits.

outstanding teacher; reads all reports; organized, punctual, well liked, fair and helpful. Some students are very lazy; just do what you're told and you'll do fine.

Mr. Schock is probably one of the most flexible & understandable instructors at WVC. He's very helpful, straightforward, w/o any BS assignments and if you can't get an A in his business classes, then its obvious that you either don't care or should perhaps scale back on the "medication" you're taking. Excelsior!

Excellent instructor; puts up for a while the lazy students who want a free ride. Knows his stuff. Fair and honest; doesn't like games students play.

BUS28 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Big book,lots of assignments, must go to every class to do video quizzes,7 projects due at end of semester. Not difficult stuff, just tedious & time consuming. Nice guy, funny stories. Open note & book exams, no essays on exams, as I've heard other instructors do (that would kill your grade!) Overall, I liked this class & learned alot about law.

BUS28 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are a waste of time. Schock doesn't teach - just tells pointless stories. You MUST read the book to do well on exams. 2 midterms and a final - open book, but still very difficult. 7, 2-page papers due at end of semester. Easy grader - doesn't actually read anything you turn in.

Dr. Schock is a friendly guy and a good teacher. I had him a few years ago for intro to business on TV. I pretty much slacked off because I wasn't serious about school, but still managed a passing grade. I see him around campus at least once a week and he always greets me with a smile. Class was hard, but good professor who really knows his stuff.

Bus. 28 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

By far the most boring class I have ever taken, all he does all period is go over court cases and its soooo boring. His tests are hard and most of it you dont know unless your willing to read that thick book. I would not recommend anyone to take his class unless you want to fall asleep.

Business Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I didn't like him at first, but its actually very interesting class. He tells a lot of stories to illustrate points and grades on a bell curve, which boosts grades a ton. lots of reading thru out and assignments due at the end but its very managable if you stay on top of things. also gives great study guides that make studying easy.

Schock is an awesome teacher. Always telling stories during lecture to keep it interesting. The class is not easy, you need to pay attention, take notes, study, the usual gig. I would recommend taking Bus Law with Schock.
