Dr. Madden will go above and beyond for his students. This class is not easy, but if you want an easy class why are you in college? He makes this class interesting and fun. If you need help, TALK to him! He will do everything he can to help you! You will feel proud passing this class in the end! Go to class as if you miss a lot expect a poor grade.

Definitely read the chapters that he assigns. Take the notes. DO NOT FALL BEHIND. It is very hard to catch up on the quizzes if you fall behind. He's a great guy and tries to know all of his students names and gets to know them. Very passionate about the subject. Great class. One of my favorites ever!

Extremely recommended you read the chapters when he tells you to, If not you won't understand anything. Great sense of humor and gets to know everyone. If you are offended easily, don't take him. Interesting lectures - they don't help too much but at least they aren't boring. Lets you use notes and stuff for tests. I would take him again!

Do NOT take his online class if you are looking for something to raise your GPA. Extremely hard grader who does not follow the syllabus. Syllabus states that assignments should be around 250 words each, but you will receive nothing higher than a C/D if you follow it. His examples of "good responses" are at least 1000+ words about 1-2 questions.

Took one of his online classes. Worked my butt off each week to write my assignments and answer the questions provided. Received nothing higher than an 85 on each. He posted an example of what our answers should look like and it was literally 10+ long paragraphs about 2-3 questions assigned. Extremely hard grader. We're at cal dude, not Harvard.

his history class was easy, its true you have to write 7 essays per test however he lets you do it in groups. Get a group of 7 and you only ahve to do one. best teacher I have had yet, took another one of his classes this semester!

I had Dr. madden for an online history class. I've heard he's great in-class, but this constitution class was very time-consuming. If you're looking for an easy online class- don't take him!

Took him this semester and was a huge mistake. He spends the entire class rambling about off topic things like texting then throws in a few F bombs for some shock laughs so all of the sudden everyone loves him. The quizzes are insanely difficult and you have to write 7 essays for each exam. You WILL have to read the textbook very intensely to pass

Doc Sean is the man. I've had him both on-line and in a classroom. He's definitely entertaining if you have him in class, but his on-line class was also very interactive. There is a lot of writing in his classes, but he gets you to think about the material. One of Cal's best professors.

Madden maintains a very relaxed classroom setting. He gives plenty of opportunities to earn your grade besides through tests. If you show that you work hard and seek the help (if needed) his class should be very enjoyable. He is a very refreshing professor and does not only teaches a textbook but life lessons as well. A very enjoyable person!

Madden was an awesome teacher. He's funny and his classes are fun. He is very helpful and will do anything to help ALL of his students. His test are hard but they are open book and he drops the lowest test grade. You basically have to try to fail his class. Do the reading, study, and you'll pass easily with at least a B. Best History teacher.
