GST 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I had him for GST and it was soooo boring! We bought books and could write our papers w/o them. Only good thing was you could be on your computer the whole time and still make an A. At least it was easy!

BUSCOMM Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

tells you to buy a book, but tells you not to refer to it. Smokes so much he has to take time out of class. Not helpful. Talks the whole class about things that could be summed up in 30 minutes. Take it from Giles. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!!

Bring some entertainment to class, this guy is Boring! Goes off on tangents, rarely makes himself clear on what the lecture is actually about or what he expects from work. Avoid unless you like zoning out.

Class overall is not that hard. Exams arent easy, but they carry no weight, they are only worth 75 out of 1000 total points each. Just do the work and make sure your grammar is correct and you will get a high B or A.

Great teacher. He tends to talk a lot, but he jokes a lot which makes class go by quick. He gives a lot of helpful information such as which business feilds have the highest demand and which ones make the most money. I always go to him instead on my advisor because I feel like he cares more and knows a lot more about business than most teachers.

BUS202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very inconsistent grader, never gives a clear answer on anything. Tests are hard, a lot of pointless assignments. Takes 5 points off for not having a hyphen in a Spanish name. Loves coffee and delicious muffins(He will say this at least 100 times during the semester) Walks around the room constantly because he is so jacked up on coffee.

Chain smoker who is addicted to coffee. Grades purely on his opinion. Class does terribly on simple assignments. Hard to get an A, A- to B easier to obtain. Not too much work, but he grades strictly on opinion. I didnt learn anything.

This guy's global class is awful! He rambles on and on and on. He piles on work near the end of the semester, and says he'll put things on Blackboard and he never does. Worst Global Teacher EVER!

BUS202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I've ever had at Elon. Required the book and rarely used it. Told students what was expected and then graded differently. Says one thing and does another. Should never have been a teacher. Ever.

Worthless class. Teacher is enthusiastic, but can not teach clearly. Instead of following the book and learning something, we did mindless memo assignments. My original enthusiasm for the class was crushed by the mindlessness. He is teaching you to be a sheep!

Really slammed my class with a ton of work right at the end of the semester. Was easy at first, then he really piled it on. Overall and easy class though. Just too many mindless papers.

Very organized, clear thinking prof. Lays out details very clearly as well. Fairly tough grader, you will have to work for an A or A-. Most end up with B range.

If you have the opportunity, take this man's class immediately... He cares if you learn and he's a great 8am... even after a rough night at the bar! You've got to be able to write well, but as long as you get on his good side you shouldn't have a problem. GREAT GUY!
