160w Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Tough Grader" "Better Like Group Projects"

Definitely don't recommend. Only took him for 160w credit. He's sadly the only one that teaches this course.. so you'll be forced to take him. He is extremely picky about his grading. One group project and presentation at the end of the semester that in total accredits to the W aspect of this class. Midterm and final. Class is easy but stressful

"Tests? Not many" "Better Like Group Projects" "Tough Grader"

Where do I even begin.. I dont know what possessed these previous students to leave GREAT feedback for this professor. All of those comments are misleading. He is a VERY picky grader. He's very presumptuous as well. The midtermfinal have absolutely nothing to do with what is covered in class. One group project & presentation. PLEASE AVOID

Bus 160W Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A+

2 exams & group work that include a 4pg proposal, 11pg report & 30 slides powerpoint presentation. Easy A if you pass the tests & receive a good grade on group work. Mainly criticize works on appearance base on little stuff such as missing period or misplace comma. You won't learn much from him & there are many writing.

BUS 160W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This professor is very hard to please. He's very ambiguous in terms of what he wants from his student. In addition, he is very "nitty gritty" when it comes to details (format, punctuation, etc.) and doesn't grade students based on the paper's/presentation's content. I did not learn anything from this class. He's very unprofessional if you ask me.

Business 160W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Take this professor! Very easy class, just a midterm and a final, as well as a group presentation. It's basically a writing class with barely any writing. You will actually learn a lot though. Take him! You'll be glad you did.

bus160w Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

although he is pretty easy.. he is not so clear. BEWARE, when you give in ur papers, correct everything and keep checking it over. b/c even though he says it looks good on ur drafts, he can mess you up on ur final. so just make sure you check everything for the final be perfect!

BusW10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Well, he was incredibly easy. Like, ridiculously easy. If you feel like doing only about a week worth of work during the semester, just go to him. Be weary though, it's a group class, so if you eff up, your team will be pissed at you. But it's really hard to. He gave me a perfect score on the final and I barely showed up. Easy A

He is a great professor. Gave us writing assignments and nip-picks on small details like format. As long as you follow instructions you should get a good grade. You learn how to write a formal report in this class. 1 midterm, 1 final, and a final presentation. You have to buy the text book for this class.

He is very straight-forward with the material and powerpoint lectures it. Read the textbook and you will be fine. Attendance never seemed to be an issue. He is actually a very funny guy and also pretty brilliant when it comes to economics.

Super easy. His test are simple he give bonus points. He throws curve on the grades. It is possible to score a 125% on your grade rather than a 100%. He is funny as well.

Prof Mitchell is pretty easy. If you show up for the reviews, use the reviews to study for the tests, and do the aplia assignments you should be fine. Definitely not the hardest of teachers.

He is the prime example of what a bad teacher is. He has spent 30 minutes setting up his laptop & then let us out half hour early. He has literally stood there & read paragraphs on end to us. When I ask a question, he referred me back to the textbook b/c he can't think critically! Don't take him! You won't learn anything except what's in the book.
