2307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

Dr Schuster's ratings here are ridiculous; his knowledge is encyclopedic and his lecturing is inspired. Take a course with Dr Schuster ASAP. He is one of the best resources UWO has and it would be a shame to miss out. His undergrad class helped me into grad school, and his grad class guided my thought into new and exciting directions.

English 2308E Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Although he was not always clear, he was straight-forward. He does not try to trick his students and what you focus on in class is what you are tested on. If you attended the class you would do well without even reading the books.

ENG 2308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Sitting through an entire 2 hour class of his is agony. Incredibly inarticulate and boring. Talks a lot, but says nothing. Uninformed and uninspiring on some of the great works of literature. He can be likened to a bad high school English teacher. A very disappointing class.

Eng2308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Although not the greatest speaker, lectures were always interesting. Attending class was mandatory for success in the course. Overall a easy marker and definitely would recommend the course.

ENG1028 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

His lectures had no point, and his assignments made me feel like I was back in high school. I would not take a class with him again.

AmLit1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

By far the worst professor I have had in my undergraduate degree. While he's a nice guy, he can't lecture. The assignments are useless and just take up time scattering information instead of a focused topic that you can actually get interested in. He also requires you to attend even when he admits that we won't be doing anything important that day.

Eng3664 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is very nice, but a poor lecturer. Lectures are extremely unorganized, he goes on for 50 minutes about something random and talks about the important stuff for 5 minutes. He also tends to make broad and general claims which have no rapport to anything we are studying. I would not take this class again.

ENGL1027 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Schuster is unclear when lecturing and seems genuinely confused by the books we were reading. Total communication failure between the class and the prof. He doesn't appear to want to help students very much, but if you see him in his office he's at least nice. Avoid if you can.

ENG1028 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Though not the smoothest talker, he was always extremely entertaining to listen to. That being said, I found he was always very clear with his points and delivered them in a way that always manged to stick
