CCJS225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Dooley makes things harder than they need to be. Lectures are very boring. He rambles away while you have to copy the notes from the power points. His grading is unnecessarily harsh. Glad it's over

CCJS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class hsouldve been an esay A. But dooley likes to make assignemnts more compliocated than they need to be. The material wasnt hard he is just not an effective explainer. He does top hat grades which really boost you. and a few extra credit. Overall, not a bad class but more complicated than neccesary.

CCJS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

While this class is easy, he makes the material unnecessarily complicated. He consistently made promises that he couldn't keep (he said we could take the final early and then the week before told us that he didn't know university guidelines and that we can't). Maybe I just didn't like his teaching style, but I did not enjoy this class at all.

CCJS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is very interesting and animated. Young and knows how to connect with the students to make the class interesting. Definitely need to read the textbook and follow along in class because there are pop quizzes. The class is not too hard as long as you do the work and all the info is not that hard to absorb so it's ok

CCJS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class is extraordinarily easy. I went to lecture twice and each time regretted wasting fifty minutes of my life. To get an A, you just need to attend discussion regularly and study the textbook the night before the exam. Dooley himself seems nice, though he does get really upset when people talk during lecture.

Hilarious and extremely sexy in a nerdy/cool type of way. Clear about content, great TA's, easy exams (multiple choice), One in class writing. I kept up with the readings and attended lecture and discussion some of the time. Overall, great teacher! We need more profs like him on campus.
