TMA114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

My favorite teacher so far at BYU. He's funny, smart, entertaining, has great stories, and we watched a bunch of great movies. Then, you write papers on how the movie is an example of what we learned about in lecture. It's a good way to apply what you learned to actual media. Love him! Take him.

Samuelson is AWESOME!!!! I loved this class. It was fun to go to and he was always entertaining and interesting. The tests are straight from the lecture. No worries, though, because he gives you a study guide that contains EXACTLY what the test will be over. EAsy and fun. He is wonderful!!

TMA201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

BEST LECTURES EVER! I took this class to get civ credit and didn't think I would enjoy it much, but this ended up being my favorite class of the semester. His lectures were so fun and interesting to listen to. His tests are free response but every question comes from the study guides so its easy to prepare. TAKE THIS CLASS!!

Pretty interesting fellow. Learned a lot in the class and got to watch some good movies each week. Reading the plays each week was a bit annoying.

Best director and teacher I have worked with so far at BYU. He is genuine, caring and will go out of his way to help any student. I've never felt more comfortable in a rehearsal process, and I was pushed and grew a lot. Loved working with him!

Awesome! Definitely take from him. He realizes (unlike many) that religion is only 2 credits and not our top priority. Just go to class and take the easy quizzes. Love it.

Professor Samuelsen was an amazing professor! I learned more in his class than I have in all of my college education. He brings brilliant insights to the class and helps you understand those who aren't members. Also, he genuinely cares about his students. If you have a problem with anything he will do his best to help you out.

I love the man. The class was interesting and I learned some good stuff. Quizzes on reading everyday are easy as long as you actually read. A great man and the best choice for D&C.

D & C 324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

That guy below me is one ignorant fool. Eric is one of the greatest Mormons I've ever met. He has his own ideas about things, but they're spiritually based and inspired. He was more of a friend than a teacher, and offered great insight into the D & C. If you know what's good for you and believe in doctrinal grey area, take D & C from him. AWESOME!!

Extremely easy and fun class. You watch movies every other class period and write papers on the movie plus a play you have to read every week. Straightforward. Highly recommended for anyone.

D & C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had him for D&C and loved it! He is very interested in it and has done a lot of background reading so he as interesting stories tell in class (maybe his theater bacground helps!) There is a ridculously easy quiz every class (to make sure you read) and his tests are staight from his studyguide.

Eric is full of good intentions but sometimes gets lost in tangets and subsequently a lot of class time is wasted, but its almost always interesting. No real lectures.

This man is a fountain of knowledge. And an incredibly open-minded, talented playwright of Mormon culture.
