EXP 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great guy, great class, He is a very hard grader on papers but in general has an exciting interacting class. I would recommend taking him and I am not a great writer or the best student, but I still got a solid 3.0 for the semester.

EXP101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Finn is an interesting teacher and I enjoyed being in class, he tells it like it is. However he is an extremely tough grader, who is very upfront about it, so don't expect to take this class and come out with a good grade

EXP101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Really great professor. If you want to be a better writer definitely take this class. It is not an easy class though, he grades essays pretty harshly but he's very willing to help. He gives pop quizzes so do the reading. Don't take this class if you're just looking for an easy grade.

Professor Finn is mad funny but he gives out pop reading quiz occasionally so be sure to do your reading. But he is definitely one of the best professors I have at Bentley.

If you want to become a better writer, definitely take him! As long as you take his advice during conferences and work hard on the revision, you'll do fine. Do not take him if you don't care about writing because it is a hard class.

I thought I was a really good writer going into the class. I got a D on my first paper, worked really hard on the second and got an A. With this said, if you work hard and follow what he wants to see in the papers, you can do well but it is not easy.

I absolutely loved him. He is a difficult grader but i still got a 3.7. If you want to actually enjoy an expos class, i would recommend him to anyone. Just put a effort in and you'll do fine.
