Dr. M is absolutely a great instructor; pay attention and do the work, ask questions for sure if you don't know what's going on. As the title of the class says, it's advanced programming so be prepared to learn.

This class is definitely not something you should take as just a filler course. You should have an interest and be ready to spend some time working with programming. He is a really good teacher though. Make sure you presentation time in class to ask questions or he assumes it means everyone is understanding material and ready to move on.

CIS525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

First part of the semester is rather easy and the second part gets very difficult. For the last couple of weeks, you have a 10-12 page, single spaced term paper over various security topics and need 15 reputable sources. The tests are fairly straightforward if you study for them (essays, true/false, multiple choice and fill in the blank).

Top-tiered professor at MSU. Many other professors could learn a few things from him. Attendance is not mandatory, but I would go so you can understand the language (C# for my class) Very down to earth real life guy. Your grade is your homework and projects...

One of my favorite teachers in college. I really enjoyed coming to this class. It wasnt something I dreaded. I appreciated his real world approach and classroom atmosphere. I hope I will be able to take a class with him again in the future.

CIS 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is always late to class and very disorganized Doesn't post grades in a timely fashion & is not helpful with assignments you have to learn the material on your own. All semester I thought it was hard but I got an A b/c he obviously did not grade my homework and i memorized the answers to practice exams It is not a hard class but he is agrivating

I took him all the way through my college life. He is the reason I am a CIS major. He takes the real world and places it in the class room. I enjoy learning from him. He is a hard teach if you don't keep up with the work and get behind. You can ask questions and premote your learn and he is willin' to help with you. You need to take him!!! :)

Shannon is the best teacher I've ever taken a class with. He is incredibly helpful and very fair. I would recommend taking Shannon's class if you want to learn from someone who actually knows what he's talking about and has real world experience.

Great class McMurtrey makes it fun and tries to help as much as possible. I would recommend taking him for as many CIS classes as possible. The extra five points he gave really helped.

If you want to come out of a class a better student, and more specifically VB programmer, take McMurtrey. I'm a soon to be Senior and he is the best teacher i have had so far in college.
