Honestly, she is such a sweet guy. Really cares about his students. Yes, he is a little older and doesn't quite know how to work blackboard, but it is an easy A if you just show up to class and listen.

Basow is a pretty good teacher. Yes, he goes off on random tangents and it does suck you aren't allowed to use computers. Overall though, I like him as a teacher. His tests are easy, he provides clear guidelines, and he is great when you go to him for help.

Not a good teacher. Rambles about nothing for as much as an hour in a hour and 15 minute class. Easy class, though.

There were points that I wanted to yell at Basow, but in the end he really does care about getting students a good campaign. He does so much for the classes, more than any other campaigns teacher. He is a little full of himself, but he means well. Only annoying thing is you have to do things HIS way or you will have problems.

JOUR676 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Bob carries a big stick. Campaigns is his life (even though he's terrible about making time to meet with him) and it's hard for him to realize that people have other commitments in their life, such as class, and expects you to drop everything for Campaigns. He is the biggest micro-manager and his teaching is completely outdated by about 20 years.

Boring. Thinks he's God's gift to teaching.

At the beginning of the semester, professor Basow and I did not get along and but heads a bit, but then we had a good conversation and he made me realize he's there to help. His class wasn't too demanding and he definitely helped if you needed it. I'd recommend him!

Basow is GREAT! I have him right now for campaigns and I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Unlike most campaign teachers he wants you to do well and outlines everything you need to do and not just leave you hanging. Def take him for campaigns!

Completely agree with the last review. Easy in the end but NOT WORTH IT. Really, I mean that.

Very poor professor all around. Easy class in the end but not worth making you want to pull your hair out over his stupidity.
