Professor Davis is a character. The class mostly consists of him giving lectures on irrelevant but interesting topics. There are only two tests. To do well on them you really just have to study the textbook, it's not too hard if you put effort in. The course content is pretty boring so Professor Davis does a good job of making things lively.

Davis is really funny in class, but I found his actual personality to be a bit condescending. While his class is easy and straight memorization, mostly from his handouts and the textbook, he rambled and strayed off topic. Class was extremely boring while he lectured but he made funny jokes on the side.

Most enjoyable lectures I have ever attended since professor is highly interesting. Tests are not extremely easy but are not hard and attendance is mandatory but class and teacher are certainly easier than most! Highly recommend this professor! Homework is minimal. A breath of fresh air! Interesting teaching method and perspectives.

In a boring class, Davis makes the class more bearable with his dynamic personality. There's not much to be taught, so he tells stories a lot. Nearly 100% of what you'll learn is from the book and not him. It's an easy A (2 tests), but he still makes attendance mandatory, and he checks randomly.

This guy is a boss. Class was so much fun. Lectures have NOTHING to do with the 2 tests though, so you have to read.

I looked forward to attending the classes. He's a great lecturer. He gets off topic often but everything he says is always interesting. Read the book, read the handouts, attend lectures. Easy A.

Just read the book, especially those handhouts he gave in class. He cut the A line at 90 instead of 94. Fun lecture. Go to class is not that boring, but you are not gonna learn anything neither.

Prof.Davis's lecture was not extremely helpful but not useless either. I enjoyed his lecture and it was actually very fun! I read the textbook and got an A at the end.

Davis is the best. He tells a lot of great stories, yet still relates it all back to management. His class consists of a just 2 easy tests (all multiple choice and T/F). Definitely take him.

Professor Davis was my favorate teacher at GW back in 1981. Now that my son is in college he turned me on to this site and I had to rate him. He taught materal that was not always in the subject area but was usefull in life. I always told friends about the prof. who tought me how to pick a steak in a butcher shop. Thanks Prof Davis good luck to you

The class is easy if you just read the textbook. Prof. Davis takes attendance sometimes and gives out notes in class. He is a pretty interesting guy but likes to talk a lot about himself, his life and football (he is obsessed with LSU). Two tests make up the entire grade. Both tests were multiple choice only. Both were easy if you study.

Prof. is a nice guy and it is very easy to do well. He does not require a lot of work, just know the text and you will do well. No tricks in this class, just two exams.

What a waste! The material on the exams comes straight from the textbook. Don't bother going to class. Aside from his poor teaching ability, taking class with Professor Davis, who spends entire classes rambling about his conservative views, is worse than watching Fox News!

As the professor, he knows exactly what to teach material related to this field. His interesting experiences and fulfilled knowledge of economy show us what to study in order to be a future entrepreneur.

Useless professor. His two tests have absolutely nothing to do with what he says in class. Make sure you read the textbook word by word. You learn nothing. Waste of time and money.

On top of everything everyone else has said (which is all true), he is an offensive, ****, inappropriate, arrogant, nutjob who pushes his own political and religious beliefs on you and makes you cringe with some of the horrible things that come out of his mouth.

Awful teacher. Old man rambles on for the entire class about nothing that's useful. Has to spell every freaking word out loud to make sure he's writing it properly on the board. Cares more about graces us with his wonderful insights than teaching the subject. His tests are practically copy and pasted out of the book and he will not explain a questi

Davis rambles about LSU football, the weather, and everything but management! i still have no idea what he spoke about this semester. two tests 50 t/f, 25 mc are your grade. he is a very funny guy to listen to. YOU MUST READ THE BOOK LINE BY LINE TO DO WELL ON THE TESTS.

Davis spends almost the entire class talking about his experiences abroad or the current economic situation. All of it is very interesting but has nothing to do with the class. He only takes attendance once or twice, but if he does and you are there, you get extra credit. Must read the book to do well on the two tests (multiple choice and T/F).
