"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Gives good feedback"

My favorite prof at FIU and one with real world experience in the Criminal Justice field. Professor Nanney makes his lectures interesting by sharing his personal stories. I would take him again if I could. I really enjoyed the class and I have learned so much. He does give you study guides but you will also have to read through all the chapters.
