"Pop quiz master" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

I did not like at all! He was rude, and he's a very tough grader. It is NOT easy to pass his class. Attendance IS mandatory. Safe all your papers from the semester, because if he counts one of your papers as a 0 it'll stay like that until you proof to him it was wrong. Do not recommend him. Just happy to be done with his class.

"Tough Grader" "Inspirational" "Respected by students"

Teaches at Lonestar College now. He's a great professor! He's really laid back. and all around nice guy. He'll rarely give any homework. A couple packets, and sometimes he'll tell you to read a chapter in the book. Also he has you do like three total papers during the whole semester. that's nothing! He can be a tough grader though.

"Participation matters" "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

Great English Professor!! Would recommend highly to other students. Attendance is mandatory and participation in regular class discussions is an obligation. Class is fun, interesting, and not difficult. You read from the text regularly, write a few papers, and take very easy pop quizzes.

Mr. Mack was very helpful, took his 1302 class at Lone Star Montgomery. He was really nice and always answered my questions. Be sure to attend class and do all of his assignments, he takes it personal if you don't. And be sure to engage in the class discussions. Overall he was awesome, as a professor and a person.

ENGL 1302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Professor Mack is a good professor with a fun way of teaching. The class is heavily discussion based, so be ready to voice your opinion. His "tests" are one question essay questions and he does grade hard, but allows every opportunity to discuss your grade with him. Also, when he gives you something to read, READ IT! Overall, good class.

He was honestly rude. I think he feels like he has power over his student and plays with his feelings to feel better. I would no take him again.

Good Teacher, Fun class for English anyway. True he is not good at keeping track of assignments, but does give u every opportunity to pass the class. Not alot of homework, but grades papers kinda tough in my opinion. I would take him again though.

A lot of his lecutres tie back to religion, if you're not a religious person you may be at a disadvantage at first, but later on in the semester his lectures didnt' tie back to religion. Also, he's not the best at keeping track of your grades, make sure you save every assignment he's handed back to you to prove that you indeed do that assignment.
