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

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!

Hist 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

There is not enough words to boast and describe about Prof Jones magnanimous lectures. His interpretation of events will challenge your paradigm of world history. The readings have been eclectically chosen; no one will be disappointed. His tests will challenge the dexterity and stamina of your fingers- no further warnings. Just brilliant.

Such an intelligent teacher. I definitely recommend him! I've never met a professor who was so passionate about teaching. He truly cares for his students and does his best on explaining things. Tests are pretty hard and definitely have to read to pass his quizzes. I learned a lot from him

Jones is a really cool and nice guy. He knows tooooo much about history. There are multiple books and yes ample reading that his lectures dont really reflect so make sure to take good notes even tho his are scattered all over. Tests are all essay/ short answer. This class is one of the hardest classes to get an A in.

His1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is very nice and passionate. There is a lot of reading and multiple books must be purchased and read to do well on tests/ quizzes. No hw at all. His tests are all essay and not too too hard if you do well on the quizzes and read, but if you are taking large load or work a lot, dont take him. The reading is time consuming. His notes are scattered
