"Tests? Not many" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

Updike's cool! His lectures are fun, he always has something interesting to talk about. The material isn't hard to grasp. I'll use some of the things I learned in that class for the rest of my life.

Updike is awesome! He's funny and definitely knows how to keep a class interested and engaged. I had a lot of really fun times in that class, and he made it super interesting, using pop culture references and jokes to make his points. Take him! He rocks!

Easily one of the best teachers I have ever had, if not the best. He loves what he teaches, and you can really tell that he cares about his students. Also, just a really funny and down to earth kind of guy. Highly recommended.

He's one of those rare breeds who actually lives and breathes logic...I don't know how he does it. With that being said, he does a great job teaching it. He does a great job of introducing topics and helps students understand to the best of his ability. You won't regret him.

PHI 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Updike was always extremely helpful and willing to spend extra time out of class to help you with assignments. The class can get a little tedious, but he is very flexible on when you can submit homework. All work is take home, including the 2 midterms and the final, though the final is very difficult. Definitely loves logic & teaches it well!

PHI103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Logic is not intuitive nor easy for most. It requires some knowledge of algebra for comprehension, but if any one can teach it, Eric can. He loves & knows logic and can relate arcane matter to the average person. He is a true gem among professors and will make you think and laugh all in one class. The only way to fail is to give up on yourself.

Professor Updike isan outstanding teacher. I took both PHI103 & PHI105 from him online over the summer. I would highly recommend Professor Updike and am grateful I was able to have him as my instructor. VERY HELPFUL!

I did not think I would be able to learn Proofs and propositional Logic. I did. I aced this class with help from Robert Sharman, the tutor. Eric is brilliant and hilarious. I would recommend him.

I found his class very easy. He is a very cool and funny teacher. Take his class and you will learn a lot. One major thing is that he accepts late homework! It's a win win situation.

Eric was my professor for Logic. I really learned so much from him. He makes the subject very understandable, even though it can seem very confusing at times. He has a lot of office hours and even made himself available some evenings. His homework was very relevant to the exams and I think his grading tends to favor the student. He rocks!

Updike is an overall great professor! It was apparent that he loves the subject he teaches, and his enthusiasm for it helps keep the class interesting. The examples he gives in class make things easier to understand.

PHI101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I wasn't sure how I'd do in Philosophy, but Updike made it easy to understand. He's fun to listen to, and makes sure everyone understands before moving on. He will stay after class if you have questions, and even answered some questions for a philosophy- based research paper I was writing. However, you MUST show up to class and do your homework!

Updike is quite the character! He makes you laugh, and always makes sure you understand what he's trying to teach! I enjoyed his class, and thought it would suck at first...and turns out it wasn't bad at all! Go to class and you won't have an issue! Do homework too!

Mr. Updike must be one of the most helpful instructors i've had. He is very engaged in what he does, and it shows. Comments prior to this one mention that he does not grade promptly. I can assure you, that has changed. I definitely recommend taking this class!

This class was AWSOME!!! I dont want it to end :( Teach could have made it the most boring class ever but instead i love it. Its like doin a puzzle that is easy enough but obscure enough to make you feel smart ha ha ha.
