Hist-8 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Clear grading criteria" "Get ready to read"

Beat professor at Mt. SAC! I've taken 3 of his history classes and loved everyone of them. His tests are all essay so it challenges your knowledge of the subject but his questions are open enough where you can explore areas you are interested in. I cannot say enough good things about Professor Jones.

HIST 3 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+
"Amazing lectures" "Would take again" "Get ready to read"

this teacher is fantastic he makes lectures very interesting and funny. there is a lot of reading but it only helps you with the vast amount of options you receive for tests. it gives you an opportunity to pick from a lot of terms you've gone over. kind of a stickler on papers but it only helps for Cal states and Universities. It only improves you.

"Respected by students" "Get ready to read" "Gives good feedback"

Professor Jones is very knowledgeable, yet I took him for an intercession and there was a lot of reading. 3 essays were written in the 6 weeks of class yet, his tests are not difficult if you do the reading.

"Gives good feedback" "There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Great Professor. I hated history courses in grade school but he made it a lot easier to learn. Very easy going, not strict on rules, does lectures like he's telling stories. Talks a lot about his personal life, but it's not a total time waster, he's done some interesting stuff. (: Overall i'd take him again!

HIST3 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C+
"Respected by students" "Get ready to read" "Amazing lectures"

He is a teacher who knows his History. His lectures are not a bore, he makes the material interesting. Aside from the lectures, he shows educational material you will most likely be interested in. Study and read the material and you will pass. The tests are kind of hard. I would rate the easiness of the tests a 610.

"Gives good feedback" "Respected by students" "Lectures are long"

Professor Jones is an excellent teacher. Although you have essays every few weeks he gives really good feed back about what you could do better next time. Tests are only tough when you don't pay attention read and study but if you do all of that you're fine. Take him! He also likes to make jokes(:

HIST 4 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely LOVED this guy. He's hilarious and easy going. He really knows his stuff and always willing to help. Heavy workload and tests are pretty difficult but if you read the books and actually study you'll do just fine. Highly recommend for social science majors. If you're not a big fan of history, you might not enjoy this class.

HUMA 1 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Mr. Jones is an excellent professor; he works with a team of three that makes class feel like a lecture hall. There are only three exams that pretty much make up your whole class grade, and you better be specific on what you're saying. If youre cool and willing to participate in class, you'll get an A '

Professor Jones is an incredible professor. I enjoyed his class so much that I took him twice. He definitely knows his stuff, he makes history interesting, and he has a good sense of humor. He cares a lot about his students and he will clarify anything you don't understand. You'll learn a lot from his class, and I highly recommend taking him!

Jones is an excellent professor because he makes the lectures so entertaining with accents and humor. He is very straightforward about what he will have on his tests. Study what he asks and you should be fine. Going into history I was so nervous that the subject was going to be boring. Jones made the class enjoyable and easy to understand!

HIST 8 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Jones is such a great professor -- he is knowledgeable, funny, and helpful. He uses power points but does not read directly off of them. If you need help with one of the essays he is willing to help with ideas. (It is writing intensive so if you don't like writing essays you might want to take another professor)

Very nice teacher! Will clarify any questions on work or tests, gives a fair amount of extra credit. The 3 teacher class is really interesting and I enjoyed the class. Be prepared for doing some reading and taking notes but I think it was still a great class!

Not enough words to boast/compliment about this teacher! Great class, and his side notes/accents are very funny! I recommend him to anyone who wants to take history! Yes, a bit of reading, but he makes the class very enjoyable, and I look forward to going each time!

Mr. Jones is the coolest professor ever. I don't mean cool as in lenient. But cool as in he's been hip and witty since the 60's. You have to read a lot and the exams can be a little tough if you get behind. He has a great attitude all the time and hes really interested in helping students succeed.
