Attendance isn't mandatory but everything on the tests are on things from class. He didn't tell us to rate him high, he said rate him honestly. Dr. Cantrell is a good teacher and a good man. He is concerned about his students and more than a few times I went to his office to discuss things. His classes are hard but he is always willing to help.

Dr. Cantrell is a great teacher. He notices those students who try as well as those who don't. If you are willing to put in the effort, he is willing to help. He has a lot of experience with what he teaches. It helps to show up to class. You will learn a lot more if you are there to see when things go wrong, and how they're fixed.

Gary is an awesome professor. The class was engaging and it was easy to stay focused on the assignments given. The only complaint I have is the book is bordering on complete garbage. Attendance isn't mandatory but if you want to complete labs and do well on tests you should probably show up. Awesome class and professor.

Dr. Cantrell used to not be my favorite Professor, but has quickly become one of my favorites. If you allow yourself to get to know him and his teaching style you will do just fine. If you talk with him, he is more than willing to help you out. At first he may seem difficult but if you show him you are willing to work hard, he will reward you!

Good professor. Can be unclear at times, but will bend over backwards to help you out. Attendance is not mandatory. Overall a great teacher. Recommended.

Gary Cantrell knows a great deal about a new field of Forensics. He has a motto 'Work Smarter, not Harder.' That means you have to attend class and ask questions about his assignments. It is easy to get a failing grade from Gary Cantrell when one makes assumptions about what he wants. Rule Number One; Work Smarter, not harder.

He is passionate about what he teaches. Attempts to be fair in grading, ask for feedback about quizzes and assignments. He is new to teaching College and it shows in his difficulty in creating test. For example the midterm was extremely difficult to complete for many students, 25 essay question in 50 minutes.

This class was definately very challenging and made me work hard and study hard. Yes, his clearification on a lot of assignments and things are pretty bleak but his study questions are very useful. I did great on the Midterm and Final and I am not very computer savvy. Yes he act like a "cool guy" and needs to calm that down but I enjoyed the class.

The worst professor in the history of CJ. He doesn't care if students understand or not. He just cares for teaching his class. The instructions for the hw are useless because he doesn't provide enough info. All his test are comprehensive! The power point he provides for the class are so confusing and hard to understand.

The tests in this class are essay style. It seems to me he pulls the must random useless garbage out of the book for the tests. The home work would be interesting except he makes it so complex and the instructions are so vague. It is virtually impossible to get a good grade in this class.
