TAKE THIS CLASS! He takes a week or two to get used to, but he is a great teacher. Very knowledgeable, on-spot test grading, online quizzes, very fair homework workload. Read the chapter, take the quizzes & if you do bad, figure out what you are struggling on and try again. Great class, excellent teacher. Hoping he teachers other classes!

His class is very easy. All of the homework and quizzes are online. He allows you unlimited attempts at the quizzes and about 3 weeks to do all of the homework and quizzes. There are in-class activites that are worth points. Make sure to do every study guide for the test. If you understand everything on the study guide you will do well on the tests

His class was very simple. You need to be in attendance for 7/10 activities, and each unit do the online work. He gives you 1 day off each unit to compensate for online work, which was awesome. Study guides are generally very accurate of what to expect on the exam and the online work was easy, extra credit too. I would recommend this class.

Best class I've had in my two years at MSU. The professor is extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, seems very willing to assist students, and always presents an interesting lecture. The class has a variety if requirements, many of which are interesting. The text book is readable and to earn a B is not too difficult if you study a bit.

He is a very easy guy to understand. His lectures get long and boring and are not really important regarding tests but you get points for in class assingments so you should go until you do all the ones you need to. I skipped alot but studied hard for the tests and still got an A. His expecations of you are very reasonable and not hard. Easy A

Easy grader, lectures can get a little boring but you can handle it. Make sure to get to class to get the clicker activities and in-class writing assignments. Discussions and assignments are online, grades are always up-to-date. Great funny guy! Knows his stuff. Highly recommended.

He is an amazing teacher, he is very helpful and you actually do learn and it is very interesting. Don't take this class with anyone but him. I personally think he's the best professor at MNSU. You'll love it.

Funny guy, tells great stories. Attendance isn't mandatory but he does surprise you with reaction papers (usually when people walk out of class). Can get boring but only because the class is over an hour. Super simple material and everything is up on D2L (including notes). Unlimited attempts for quizzes. So great! Definitely recommend him.

Took as summer class, 5 weeks, 1hr 45mn a day. You don't NEED to go class, but make sure you get all 4 in class response papers done by the end. Really nice teacher with fun little stories. Lots of examples to help understand material. A fun, fun guy. Doesn't like cell phone/internet usage, but he never called me out on it either.GREAT CLASS!

Incredibly easy class, go to class, do the online assignments. Tests are EXACTLY whats on the study guides, everything on the study guides is right out of the book. Boring to listen to, but print out the slides so you don't have to take notes and its a breeze. Doesn't really give any homework other than d2l stuff and a couple assignments. Easy A

If you're looking for an easy general/lecture, take this class! Vassar is great. There is a lot of participation points but they are all easy and help you learn. That way if you dont do too well on the tests you should still be ok. Just do the assignments, and the participation, and go over the study guide and you will be golden!

He is layed back and easy-going. The way the class is structured is amazing. He created these things called "web days" which are amazing if you need a break from that class for a day to get caught up. Online activities enable you to easily get a good grade.

Good luck staying awake. Don't take it in the morning, it is the most boring class I have taken.
