COM Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Watch out before you take this online class. "Dr.P" has great lectures and material, but doesn't help you at all succeed on tests. Questions are always tricky questions that may be multiple or none. He makes you take the exams at 7:30AM on SATURDAYS. BEWARE.

COM 3122 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you take this course make sure you understand EVERYTHING the first week. After that, if you have question don't expect to get a straightforward answer from him. He is rude and not very helpful at all. If possible, don't waste your time with this professor.

Don't know what he's like in person, but online, he seems more interested in tripping up his students than in their success. Seems to have a very low level of computer literacy for someone trying to teach online. Has very Fox-news based opinions about everything.. skip it if you're looking for a smart professor who doesn't try to fail his students.

COM 3120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR !!! Test every other Saturday Morning at 7:30am. 40 minutes for 50 questions for Exams at 7:30am on Saturday mornings. Does not care about you as an individual. Horrible class boring online lectures. The teacher just talks about himself and his accomplishments and who he knows. WORST class of my USF career!

You will have to study A LOT! The class consists of 5 quizzes, 5 analyses, and 3 exams. Everything will come from either the book or Dr. P's PPT lectures. If you are willing to put in the effort you will come away with more knowledge about ORGCOM than you could have ever imagined. USF is very lucky to have a professor as knowledgeable as Dr. P.!!!

If you're looking for a give me grade then don't bother DR. P If you're willing to put in the time and effort, and want to get a real sense of what the REAL world is like, then this is then Dr. P is the right one. Tests and manageable if you study. Take the tie to go to his office hours. Dr. P cares about the quality of student he teaches.

Quizzes/Exams NOT easy to pass. He is not fair grading scale is HORRIFIC!! Miss one assignment or test poorly and and you fail the class. DO NOT, I mean DO NOT take him. AVOID

Not helpful, NOT computer literate, uses Drop Box instead of posting to blackboard for power point lectures, says info is posted online and do work early but the info is not posted and often isn't until a few days before-then he blames students for doing last minute work. Updated syllabus six times during semester. AVOID

VERY unclear instructions. Instructions on syllabus were different from what was stated online. Threatend class numerous times if received emails with what he 'deemed' redundant questions he would take points off your grade. Do Not take him or this class.

His directions for assignments are extremely vague. I took this online and it was the most confusing online class i've ever taken. The descriptions are all over the place. He does not seem to welcome questions or emails. I did decent in the class and I was thankful for having this option online but i wouldnt recommend him.

If you are an organized student, don't take this class. The syllabus is a mess, he posts quizzes wrong, and he's not helpful in class. Everything is his way or the highway. Good information, but difficult teaching style. Go to early office hours if you want help. Test questions are confusing even though the material is not difficult. GO TO CLASS.

Dr. P is amazing! I took classes he taught because he was teaching them! He makes subjects very clear and interesting. He helps those who want to be helped - go to office hours. Treats class like the real business world. Awesome professor!

Dr. P is very opinionated but helpful. He's a straight shooter and explains both sides of every situation. If you are easily offended or unable to use simple logic and reason don't bother taking the class.

Be patient. Dr. P is a great instructor. If you have difficulty, go to his office hours. It's that simple. Pay attention in class...read your WSJ articles and text. Do well on the BB quizzes; most of the questions show up on the exams. Be patient. Some things are outdated, and there are mistakes on quizzes. Dont question him; GO TO OFFICE HOURS!!

Dr. Pettegrew is very knowledgable, true; however he is extremely arrogant and definetley shows favoritism. His tests are made to be tricky too, don't let him fool you. Would NEVER take another class of his again.

I absolutely loved this class. Pettegrew is awesome! I would highly recommend this class to anyone. My best advice is to GO TO CLASS. You can't complain about this teacher if you don't show up.
