MIS 320 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst class ever. He canceled 4 lectures over the semester. That equals month of missed class. Nearly everyone failed him midterm. Only good thing is he gave the final online.I think he was worried about failing the whole class! There is potential for this class, but he used lectures straight from the book. Literally this guy didn't even try...

MIS 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Cool, fun guy. He makes the classroom environment comfortable. He's very fair and helpful. Good luck to Mac users- this course is geared towards PCs. Take advantage of the online review questions. Read the textbook to review for tests.

MIS 301-004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C

Note to further students taking that class, don't listen to the professor, read the book and do the EZ tests and you are good to go. It got to the point that I would take the quiz and leave merely because he was confusing. Nice guy, but even recommends watching YouTube videos to reinforce lessons given. This class would benefit from being online..

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I didn't think this class would be difficult, but it was! Did pretty good in the beginning, but it went downhill after the midterm period. Homework was a pain, exams had tricky wording, and there were quizzes every week. Try to find a different professor.

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE Professor. Tests are super confusing and hard, because his ENGLISH is horrible. Assigns homework that we never went over in class. Does not curve, quiz every Monday for attendance purposes. Never take this guy! How does he have a job as a professor?

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He lacks sufficient grasp on the English language. This makes the tests and homework confusing and I lost points b/c I answered the question he wrote, not the question he meant to write. You are on your own for the homework as the topics are not covered in class. His exam study guides are USELESS. The class is hard only b/c of him! Avoid his class!

Menon is a nice guy, but he is a HORRIBLE teacher. The content is confusing, his lectures make no sense, his tests are confusing, and the homework has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. Avoid this professor at all costs; you will end up with a lower grade than you deserve.

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is nice but he is confusing. The homework he gives is always not clear. His tests are really difficult and only worth 37 points although it took me the whole class time to finish the last test. He has a lot of grammar mistakes in his pp slides. I regret taking him. Will probably end up with a B although I am an A student.

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy. The class is a bit tricky but not impossible. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND the material. Good thing though is that he is willing to repeat things over and over again until you get it. He's wording on test is tricky, but go up and ask him and he clarify what he means. Study for his tests! Take advantage of office hours!

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's really nice and easy-going. His tests are easy A's if you understand the concepts. He assigns time-consuming homeworks but the hw grade helps a lot in case you bomb the exams. Don't buy the textbook. Borrow someone else's then read off/copy the cases instead. Gives out pop quizzes so attendance is highly recommended. Oh and he curves!

Mr. Nirup is a great guy, but his test are really tricky and the way he words things makes it even harder since its hard to understand what he is asking. He will help you and walk you through the homework problems if you take the time to see him. You must know the material and not memorize it because the answers all resemble each other. k

MIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Menon is really nice and easy-going. His exams are a little bit tricky though. They require more understanding than memorization. Avg. of the 1st 2 exams was high 60's and final was low 70's . He does curve so it always helps
