Info 1120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice enough guy, but when it comes to teaching students he is terrible. It feels that he is just providing the 'WHAT' to do, but not the 'HOW.' There wasn't a single class when he didn't have to go back and re explain himself because he went too fast. I would rather take an online class than from him, he just makes it more confusing.

"Gives good feedback" "Participation matters" "Would take again"

pat gets bad reviews for no reason. He is clear cares about his students and the subject matter. He is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and has worked in industry unlike many other teachers that have never left academics. I dont understand the low rating he is excellent.

INFO 1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I haven't dropped this class because I work full time and this is the only time available. The 1st & 2nd day of class consisted of mass confusion. We're barely even a week into the semester and we're already behind. Assignments have ludicrous requirements. This class is not for anyone who doesn't have a lot of extra time outside of the classroom.

INFO 1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A-

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.

1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.
