If you get anything less than an A in this class you should be embarrassed. You don't have to pay attention in class, you just have to click in. Just read the Review Questions he posts online: they're the exact questions he puts on the exams.

This class is not easy as people say it was. However, you should not get anything less than a B. Class is mandatory due to clickers. There are a couple of homework and exams (drop the lowest for both). There is also a final. The professor is really nice. He is always willing to help if you do not understand the materials.

The class was really easy, there are 3 midterms(lowest one drops), 6 homework (1 lowest drops), attendance and final exam, studied only one day before the exam and got an A.

Not as easy as people say it is but you really shouldn't get anything less than a b minus if you are willing to do the work. Pretty interesting though.

Really easy class, you only need to show up to class 80% of the time to get full participation points. You get to take a cheat sheet in the exam (which are really simple). Drops the lowest midterm! Won't regret taking this class!

Attendance is taken, but you can miss almost 2 weeks of class. I sat on my phone all class and got an A. His slides are online and class is boring, but the points are needed to get an A. The exams are easy. Study the practice questions-some are the same. Also allowed a study paper in the exam front and back full of answers..hard not to get an A

Not as good of an experience as I expected. While Mr. Robinson was pretty easy and required no textbook, his ability to instruct was only average. He was confusing, unclear, and underprepared on multiple occasions and bad at class control (talking). However, he was nice and genuinely did his best to help students. Decent overall, but not exemplary.

Easiest class ever. I went to class to get clicker points and watched tv. Before the test i would do his practice questions which most were on the test and went through his slides a couple times. Super super super easy class. I loved it. Interesting old man and tries his best to make this stuff interesting to college kids

Easy class, but not as easy as i thought it would be. Lectures can get boring so bring your laptop and lunch. Clicker points but you can miss a few classes or leave after just one (it counts for the whole day). You can use a cheat sheet on the exams so just copy the practice questions and youre good to go!

Whoever thinks this class is easy needs their head examined. I'm really struggling. The exams are difficult, and don't use the study mate questions because the answers are wrong and you'll get them wrong on the exams. I regret taking this course. Tim is passionate about the subject, but what he talks about in class is hardly on the exam.

Not as easy as I expected. I still had to study for tests, but as long as you average As on the first two exams (they are open note), you can get a B on the final.

Not as easy people say, but he isn't bad either. The subject is dry which doesn't help, but he does try to make it as interesting as possible. Most if not all the questions are the review questions. If interested in the subject, take him.

Mr. Robinson and Mr. Ritsko are like Batman and Robin. Mr. Robinson is very easy teacher and Mr. Ritsko holds college-student friendly office hour and answer all question. Mr. Ritsko may be the most personable profesor/teach assistant I ever have even with slight American accent and linguistic. No dislike for this instructors. Take this class!

No textbook is required. It's a very easy course, you just have to do the studymate activities. His lectures are boring though and he covers a lot of material that isn't needed on the tests. If you need an easy A, than take this course.

Easiest class I have taken thus far at Penn State. The exams are the practice questions. He will help you if you don't understand the homework. This is an EASY A and not a bad class for a gen ed.

Real nice guy! Easy class but I would suggest taking it online if possible. The material for this class is boring and all the material is online. No need to buy a book.

Mr. Robinson's a cool guy. Didn't use a textbook, only an iclicker for attendance. Attendance is checked daily. Six homework assignments that take five minutes, unlimited attempts. No quizzes. Three midterms, lowest one's dropped, and a final. Exam questions taken straight from review questions. Easy A and actually pretty interesting.
