SOC 1 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Took him during summer intersession. I put in a lot (and I mean ALOT) of effort in this class in order to get that A. I was taking this class while on vacation and it was tough. He doesn't reply to emails ASAP, he grades hard without any feedback, and there's ALOT of reading. Other than that, his extra credit was interesting. Would not recommend.

Mr.Medina is a great professor! The class is hard but i loved it. Students are required to read and UNDERSTAND the material because the TEST are right off the book. (BUT THEY ARE HARD.) I received a B in his class! His lectures are amazing.... You will love to go to class.. Although attending is NOT required.

His class is not very easy, but he is a nice professor, if your overall only got around 87, he will give you A on your final grade and transcript.

Sociology 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

It's basically an online class. Everything is online, but you still have to sit through his classes. His "lectures" are basically on his life, family, & opinions. The online assignments are easy, but he doesn't cover the book at all & that is what the 200 question tests are on. It is basically just teaching yourself & faking your way through.

SOC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Even if you don't take his online class, most of his work to do is online. He rambles a lot on NOTHING that was supposed to be the lesson of the day. Made the class learn about 3 weeks later than what the syllabus said where we were supposed to be. He doesn't care if you sleep in class if you have a B. Class was frustrating, but will change you.

Professor Medina is a really nice guy and a dedicated professor. He really loves sociology;however, it was not an easy class. He gives lecture exams and textbook exams. YOU NEED TO READ THE ENTIRE BOOK! I got on A but it was not easy. It took a lot of work. I would not recommend. HONEST TOOOOO MUCH WORK. Exams are online, they are hard, and timed

I found Mr. Medina to be quite helpful, and the work that had to be done for the class was not hard at all. YES, you must read the text book in order to pass the exams. I found the course overall to be quite interesting, made me view society a lot different.

I just finished this online class and received an A, it was really easy. Just don't fall behind and keep up with the readings, also be sure to study well for tests because they are timed. Also do the extra credit LA tour it is really interesting and brings you up 5%. Overall great teacher.

The Online tests are a joke. If you work a lot and don't have time to literally read the whole textbook, then your out of luck, and I wouldn;t go with Medina. His tests are all from the book and really require a lot of studying and memorizing. I love Soc. and I have to re take his class

Don't take his class, you basically teach yourself. Everything is online and he doesn't teach from the book, even though all the tests are from the book. Doesn't give enough time for tests. It's just a life class.

I took his online class and it was great almost like a regular class.For people saying uhave to read the book on your own that is with any class so everyone should expect that. The lectures is help you understand the material you read on your own.

1)You have to read the textbook on your own. 2)His lectures are interesting, but not what i wanted to learn in this class. 3)Took 6 weeks before he even began to give a lecture. 4)Basically an online class, if you dont like them, i wouldnt suggest him. Overall, i wasn't impressed with Medina and i will probably have to retake this class.

This professor is unrealistic his exams are 120 questions in 90 minutes. He does not give study guides or return any papers you have no way to improve because you never see what he graded you on

Professor Medina admits to changing his class up all the time so I don't know how helpful this will be. Test homework and quizes all online. Tour of LA extra credit worth 5%. Will open your mind. Read the book lectures more on concepts but not what was actually read. Had him summer got a B.

Can change syllabus at ant time. Be prepare to teach yourself in regards to the book. Lectures are long but if you don't answer exactly the way he wants, he will put you down. Class is interesting; however, he can be contradicting.

This class was pretty fun. Lectures were extremely interesting and he has two separate tests: One for lecture and the other is from the book, so be sure to read! Overall, awesome class AND teacher :)

Great Profesor!THis class really got me thinking about where I fit into Society. Mr.Medina kept me on my toes with his lectures. An eye opener for the roles you play out in your life. Take lots of class notes, you will have quizzes on them. Read all assigned chapters to keep up with the class. Overall, a great class.
