This professor is a great guy and really knows his stuff. He's been teaching business for such a long time and even though he goes on rants, he usually gets the point across. He's also pretty helpful. Overall, I recommend this class but watch out for the tests! They are sometimes confusing, but always ask him questions and you should be fine.

If he even responds to emails, they won't make sense. His tests are partial questions that you have to respond to within an hour, which is usually sent out at the wrong time/on the wrong day and, even if you miss the unexpected email, you can't make it up. Final grade was determined by classmates' opinion not on work, even though work was required.

Noonan is a good guy. If you want a good grade to help out your GPA take a course with him because it is impossible to fail. If you go to class and interact your guaranteed a 3.5. However if your interested in learning to prepare you for your future I would chose another professor.

Good guy. Very knowledgeable in his field. Loves to talk about politics and is very right winged but loves to debate liberal students so don't be discouraged. If you show up and participate in class he will like you and you will do fine. I would take him many times again.

I first had issues because I could not understand his instructions, which was clarified later. He talks a lot about politics little about the subject. The final project is the most important thing. In general, he is very easy, his classes are fun and he will appreciate your efforts, just be aware that you are going to teach yourself.

bsad300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This man is the worst professor I have had at FSC. He is incomprehensible at best, has a complete ignorance to the English language. All communication from him was in the form of gibberish. I will never take a class with him again.

He's okay, but he's not up-to-date with real life situations. He thinks he understands the advertising realm but i don't think he's progressed with the changes it has made.He's very old school and he'll teach you his experiences, which is knocking door to door. I wish he'd teach the digital, modern advances in the marketing industry.

The best teacher I have ever had. He takes you out of the the text book and gives you real situations. Though the textbook is used for some applications. I loved every class I took for him. I recommend him but be ready to speak in class and do a project.
