FAMR 230 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Amazing lectures" "Hilarious" "There for you"

Hands down the BEST professor at UH Manoa, he's a very helpful and caring professor. He often time will go out of his way just to help you understand somethingif your struggling. He does tend to talk a tad bit fast but after a couple weeks you get used to it, if I could minor in FAMR I'd do it just to continue taking classes with Dr. Caulfie

Rick is amazing. He loves teaching and really goes above and beyond for his students. His lectures were engaging and the exams are easy if you attend class. I graduated a number of years ago but still use him as a reference and he's always willing to help. Really great guy

Professor Caulfield is an amazing professor. However, I really got a lot out of this class. Attendance is mandatory.Here is the grade breakdown: 2 Midterms worth 20% each, 1 Final worth 25%, 5% In-class activities, 15% Assignments done over course of semester, 5% small groups, and 10% attendance. I highly recommend this class.

Fun class! his exams are pretty straight forward as long as you study until you memorize it completely. You have to earn an A, so don't underestimate this class though! attendance is mandatory. barely used my textbook, but still an easy class!. One more tip, GET TO KNOW HIM ON A FIRST NAME BASIS! really helps in the long run. highly recommend!

Not as easy as everyone says. There's a lot of content to go over and his lectures are all over the place. He's a super funny & nice guy and he's definitely helpful. Attend the review sessions, go over the study guide, attend class and you should be fine. He has three exams, a portfolio, and takes attendance through in-class activities.

Super funny guy and pretty easy class. He pretty much covers EVERYTHING that will be on the exam, so you should go to every class. I HIGHLY recommend taking Dr. Caulfield! He shows videos and tells little jokes. He also uses real life examples to make it easier to understand.

Definitely one of the easier classes available for a DS credit. Attendance is not mandatory but it's worth attending lecture because notes are not available online. Tendency to ramble but very nice and approachable guy, willing to meet and explain more if material is unclear. Overall, heavily recommend and Rick is definitely one of the best at UHM

Caufield is the best! His lectures are always interesting because he talks very animated and you can definitely tell how passionate he is about teaching. Even if the class isn't easy peasy, Caufield is more than helpful! He even gives you some answers on midterms if your stuck on something and running out of time. You'd be heartless not to love him

Professor Caulfield is passionate about teaching and it shows. He really cares about his students and wants them to learn. He will do everything possible to make sure you can succeed.

The professor is very enjoyable and I look forward to his classes. His notes are very disorganized, but he tells you what you actually need to copy down on the powerpoint. Exams are easy if you take notes and go to the study sessions since he goes over most of the questions that will be on the exam. Overall, he is a very funny and awesome person.

A very kind professor, takes attendance randomly so it is better to attend often. Tests contain only the materials covered in class and on the reviews. Do not need to get the textbook. He cares about the students and though he may get off-track he does teach you what you need to know. This is a good course for all majors.

Rick is a nice guy, but his teaching methods could use improvement. He spends a bit too much time telling stories about his kids. He also tends to speak too quickly and mumble during lecture. Bottom line: a cool guy, take this class if you want an easy A. Avoid this class if you want to learn the knowledge that your tuition has paid for.

The greatest teacher I know! Really cares for his students and very helpful if you just take the time to go to him. Lectures are straight forward and make sure you take notes because it will be on the exam. He speaks really fast but surely you will enjoy his class. Caulflied is cute, funny, and approachable. RECOMMENDED!

Rick is great! He sincerely wants his students to do well and really loves what he teaches. I recommend him to anyone. You don't need the book to do well as long as you take good notes and study what he goes over in the lectures. One of the best professors I've ever had.
