RCT 1005C-0 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

Jesus Christ, this guy is the most boring guy i have ever taken. I literally loathe coming to class. Never on time always late by at least 15 minutes, rambles for the entire class.That being said, take him anyway, he doesn't care if you use your laptop or slack off, easy test just read textbook guarantee A or A-. Still though, prepare to dieinclass

RCT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This is an interesting course and you can tell that he is very enthusiastic about it. He does lecture for the entire period, so you dont really need to have read the textbook.

Great professor. There is a paper, a group presentation, final, and 3 tests. Get a hold of his old tests cause he uses the same questions so it's an easy A class. Study for the final though!

RCT1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a really good professor and to be honest, he makes the class somewhat interesting. Sometimes it feels like a drag but everyone's always in a good mood because of the atmosphere he brings in. There were so many funny moments/jokes. 3 tests, 1 Final and 1 Paper. Try to get a hold of his old tests. Take him, you won't regret! I loved him.

He's lectures for the whole class without stopping. So you can just go to class zone out or take notes. One presentation, three tests and one final. His tests, however are tricky. You will not get an easy A unless you get a hold of his past tests.

RCT1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Overall, the dude's a nice guy, but class is REALLY boring cuz he straight lectures for hr nd 1/2. compared to other speech teachers, gives practically zero work, so thats a plus. his tests are VERY tricky, and its not that easy of an A. However, he doesnt change his tests or the order of the answers, so get a hold of them from upper classmen!!

Class is pretty interesting. I learned a lot about communications. We had 3 tests and a final. Also, there's one group presentation and one term paper over anything communication related. There's a lot of common sense on the test, but also know the terms.

He a really good teacher. he seems to be more interested in actually having his students understand and appreciate the material rather than just cram it in and spit it back out on paper. Hes very understanding but you cant walk all over him he does have his limits. Pretty easy class but dont take it for granted. know the material for the final!

7:35 AM Class. Does what he can to keep us going. I read book, I just suck at his tests. Tests are straight forward and decent. Got an A- in his class, was expecting a B+. Great dude! Relates to the class.

Speech was such a drag on mondays and he doesnt know how to make a 3 hour class more interesting. Other than that, hes definitely a nice guy and his tests are pretty easy if you just read the material once over. One group presentation and a paper, which he was very easy about. Definitely try to take him,all the other pharm speech teachers are worse

He grades easy on the projects and other assignments, as long as you put some effort into it. His tests are based entirely on his notes and textbook. It's also based on common sense. It's easy to get an A in his class.

He's okay but sometimes it can get a bit boring since he just summarizes the book. His test are a bit tricky so you have to read the questions Carefully. You have one presentation which is really easy and then a paper. But overall I think he was a pretty decent speech teacher.

I think that he was an amazing teacher. If i had a prob, he always helped. Trust me, an A is very doable. Just read the book. i used to cram two days before the test. The presentation is a joke but he takes the paper u write seriously. He will always look it over before u hand in ur final copy. He is the best professor i have had. Very approachable

he was okay. I mean he tried his best but my class wouldnt talk so it ended up to be a really boring class. His tests are not that bad but tricky questions. He gives curves but like 2 points on each test
