MKTG445 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Easiest, most straight-forward professor in the world? No. But true learning isn't about regurgitating facts. It's about learning how to think. Will it help if you stay up on current events outside of class? You should anyway being you are there to be educated, but besides that, yes. Great professor, and you will agree looking back.

BA303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I had a soul when I walked into the classroom, but as the semester progressed my soul would dispear. This class was the worst class ever. We learned toliet paper. And he lives in a lucky box. Ask him about it. If you value your soul, do not take him.

Bergstein is a great guy, and genuinely cares about every student. If you participate and make an effort to talk to him, you should do well. However, his class is very disorganized and his quizzes always have typos, double answers, terrible grammar, etc. I think he types it up 5 minutes before class. Overall, I really enjoyed going to his class.

mktg455 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

To sum it up: He said at the end of the semester that we don't need finals or to learn anything substantial cause "you can just look it up on the internet these days". It seems good when you only have quizzes, but he has very unclear lectures/notes. I think I only got an A cause my class had persistent suck ups that got the rest of us freebie pts.

Bergstein is a great person to know and gives a lot of good advice outside of class. His class however is a mess with no structure. Classes are interesting and go by fast but you will leave wondering what just happened. Weekly quizzes are difficult and are not a reflection of what was discussed in class.

BA303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Bergstein is a bit of a paradox: he makes class fun and interesting, but at the same time your exam scores will not benefit AT ALL from attending. All he does is talk about random trivia, which is entertaining especially when you can win $50 gift cards, but less than 5% of the exam material is from class. Great entertainer, AWFUL professor.

Andrew is a great professor, but an even better person. I saw the negative comments here and couldn't disagree more with them. If you take the time to get to know him you'll be able to get some real world advice and have a great resource in an employment search. Find classes with him and take them.

BA303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I CANT NOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW MUCH OF A WASTE OF TIME THIS CLASS IS. DO NOT TAKE HIM! YOU WILL LEARN NOTHING ABOUT MARKETING! We talked about Starbucks coffee, footbal1, and blackberries. than you have to remember and try to guess what collection of random facts he will put on the exam.. he always contradict what the textbook says. WASTE OF TIME!

BABA Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE. I had him for freshman seminar and thought i'd give him another shot for BA but what a mistake. He DOES NOT teach he just rambles on and on about nothing. His exams are poorly written (some questions don't even use correct grammar) and you'll be extremely unprepared for them. Avoid him any way you can.
