Sociology Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I cannot express how great Dr. Ness is! I have taken him for 2 sociology classes and I wish I could take him for all of them! He is funny, explains all concepts thoroughly, and gives tests that come directly from readings and class notes! Take him...you'll be happy that you did!

Dr Ness is a nice guy,and one of the best profs on campus. He gives open book test, study guide which is exactly the same question seen on test/quizzes.He also offers a lot of extra credit,almost 30points.Anyone failing any of Dr Ness classes,honestly needs to drop out of college.If everyone goes to college,who is going to keep the restrooms clean?

SOCI 1160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's deathly boring, and if you don't answer questions with the specific words he used, he won't give you credit. You don't really learn how to analyze social problems, you just look at a couple that interest him. It's mostly about racism.

Dr. Ness is so sweet, funny, and helpful. His class is fairly easy if you're willing to pay attention and study. Even though the class itself is boring, he tries to make it better. I'm definitely taking him for other sociology classes in the future.

Dr. Ness pretty much gives you everything you need to know. His lectures may not be bells & whistles, but they certainly give you all the information you need. It's not difficult...you just read your selections (which are very interesting), answer the questions that he gives you...he goes over it in class...he announces quizzes. Bam! You pass.

Dr. Ness has to be the nicest prof I have ever met, and a great one at that. There was a bit more work to do than I was expecting, but they are all guided to teach you concepts that you would otherwise have to read the text about. Very funny prf, and very easy to discuss questions about assgnmnts. gives extra credit on tests! I'll take him again!

Ness is awesome. The quizzes were open notes and so was our final test. The other tests consisted of 2 short answer/essays questions, depending on how much YOU write. I highly recommend taking him for this class.

WOW pretty harsh & unfair comments! Dr. Ness is a wonderful instructor; extremely smart & organized. Remember kids, you are in college now & have to EARN your grade. I plan on taking him for more classes - I actually learned something from him v. the instructors that hold a students hands because ASU is full of dumbed-down lazy flunkies. Grow up!

SOCI1160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a really nice guy. Lecture is not all that entertaining, but he does not waste your time giving notes that will not be needed. Ness gives notes that he is going to be useful when taking the test. Eash test come with a study guide, if you do that and then study it, there is no reason not to pass. I recommend this class, not too much reading!!

Dr. Ness is my favorite proffessor at ASU. If you like to write papers especially, then he is amazing. He has open note quizzes, sometimes open note tests and he always tell you in advance exactly what is on the tests/quizzes. I have taken three classes with him and gotten three A's. Do it!

SOCI 3381 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I have nothing against the guy personally, its just that he grades very harsh in my opinion. His lectures are boring, he gives heavy critism on projects, and his test questions are tricky let alone the fact that he is skimpy when it comes to partial credit. Despite all this, he will let students correct mistakes on projects for a measly few points.
