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 class was more than just facts-he wanted you to connect it to your life to help the development of yourself and those around you.

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.

Rick is the best professor I've had this semester! He is such a sweet guy, you'll love coming to class. He uses his kids as examples a lot and it's super cute!

Best class ever, mostly because of the professor! He's so passionate about what he teaches and tries to be so involved with everyone. The T.A. Diana is pretty cool too and really funny.

It's rare to find such a passionate teacher. I highly recommend. He's funny and sweet, extremely helpful. Offers extra credit. Attendance not mandatory, just go so you don't miss answers to the test or reflection questions. One of the best teachers I've had, hands down.
