Pat is extremely confusing and unclear about what he wants as far as assignments. You don't actually learn anything in class, instead you have to use YouTube in order to do homework assignments. Wouldn't recommend taking any class from him.

I loved Pat, he is a really amazing guy. But he is a bit scatter brained, but you can tell he is really passionate. You do have to be in class and follow along very carefully to get a decent grade. Don't attempt to go ahead, and listen very carefully. I would recommend him, but be patient, be in class and listen carefully. Knowing MLA is a must.

If you don't go to class don't expect to pass this class. He is constantly changing the assignments and if you aren't in class you won't know about it. His lectors are pretty much useless but if you attend class and follow along you will get a good grade.

He put all his assignments online but the schedule was completely wrong. Every day the assignments moved. The class presentations were pointless and I'm not sure how the class description given by the school applied to what was taught. If you want a class that has any bit of structure, don't take this guy. You'll have no idea what is happening.

He was all over the place. Your reports must be in his "MLA" format that he changed several times. The assignments had nothing to do with what the class discription said or even what you go over in class. It was a waste of time. I wish I would have taken someone else.

This guy is ridiculous. He has his due dates for assignments screwed up three ways from sunday, he changes them on the fly after I'd already finished them, so I had to redo them and submit them the same day.. he just can't get his head straight. If he is ever the only instructor I have the option of taking, I'll skip the semester just to avoid him.

Pat cannot stay focused on anything, he is all over the place and very confusing. Never knew what was going on in class. Take this class online and you will do ok cause lectures are pointless. He does not respond to emails.

Pat is awesome as a person, but not a good instructor. Nothing from the tests and quizzes are talked about in class (they are open book and pretty easy) and half the class is wasted doing pointless things. The class is not hard overall and you won't learn much, but Pat is an enjoyable guy.

This teacher is horrible, its a beginning level class yet he expects a level of knowledge required by 300 level classes. He goes to fast and focuses on busy work and formatting rather than understanding concepts important to the class and the major. I will never take another class from this professor and would advise you not to either.

The guy is a genius but he is so scatter brained that he doesn't realize that no one can follow him. Most of the assignments are done right in class so you don't have to stress out too much. The tests, if you really want to know, you can google one question and find all the answers online. If you have to take him, then do it, it will be ok.

Pat is an extremely nice guy and will do anything to help you in the class. Attendance is mandatory if you want to get a B or higher. He moves quick so you have to be paying attention every second! You need to buy the book because there are quizes and homework every week that comes straight from the book! good guy, but yess moves very quickly!!!!!!

AVIOD THIS PROFESSOR! He is not clear in his instructions, his teaching style is all over the place, and he teaches important concepts way to fast. If you?re not an Excel expert expect to study! Don?t get me wrong, Pat is a very nice guy, but difficult to follow most of the time. If you do decide to take this class from this professor, watch his po

This teacher is a nice guy, but terrible at giving instructions! I dropped the class because I didn't have any idea what he wanted us to do! This was the most frustrating class I have ever taken!

Pat is AWESOME and will do anything to help students. There's a lot of busy work with this class but the tradeoff is that you will learn a lot. Students complain about the workload and prof but not an impossible class. I didn't take pre-req's and had no prior knowledge of excel or access and still got an A. One of the best Professors I've had.

This guy is really smart, but HORRIBLE at giving instructions. There is SOOO much busy work to do in this class, and he has so much to do that he rushes through everything, changing the assignment as he goes. You will need LOTS of clarification on the assignments. A child could write more clear instructions. Tests are insane!

I really liked this class. The teacher is very energetic and cracks jokes, which are usually funny. My only problem with the course is that the assignment instructions are very vague, & he tries to not explain anything b/c he wants us to create unique work. Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions- he might tease you, but it's the only way to pass.

Pat is a great teacher, very energetic. But I've taken 2 different classes from him and each class was basically the same, an Excel/Access class with student presentations. The book is used for weekly quizzes. Assignments are time consuming, and if you miss class, difficult to complete since the instructions are not clear. But he is very helpful.

Great Teacher, every class is fun! He does move fast with the assignments but will do a podcast if you don't get all it. I didn't expect to get an A but he gave so much participation and extra credit that it bumped me up. You must attend class or you will probably fall behind. He is very set on due dates so pay attention.
