HUI 216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Nice kind-hearted professor. Friendly, says jokes in class. Hard grader on essay worth 50% of your grade. Very helpful though; I saw him weekly on how to improve my essay, and he was always very willing to help. Final exam worth 35% of grade KILLS your overall grade, because it does not relate to what's taught in class much. Overall good professor

HUI216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class was very interesting, he just kind of made it boring. Only three things that are part of your grade. Attendance (5%), 5-10 page research paper (45%), and Final (50%). Make sure to start the paper early since the topics are quite complex. Memorize the interactive quiz answers because those comprise most of the final exam questions.

HUI110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This. Class. Sucks. My attendance is 90%. The lectures were boring, his voice is monotonous. He goes off on tangents. The grade is based almost 50/50 on a paper and a final. The final is ridiculously hard, the paper was alright. Nothing taught is usable or applicable knowledge. I wish I never took this course.

HUI216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Im sure the topic is interesting but he drags it sooo much. People only go for attendance. Sign in sheet is passed around but dont leave because he will random people up to show an ID before leaving the class. Its just boring and I go to every class but I wish I had never taken this class.

hui216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Boring,dry,thinks its unfair that your grade is based off two things, a final and a paper. I studied, attended class and took numerous amounts of notes, felt he was unfair with the paper and the final was very difficult.. I think alot of people in my class failed this because of the final.. You should get more of a chance of doing well

HUI216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I felt really bad that after students would sign the attendance sheet they would just leave. After a half hour practically half of the Javits room was gone and that was because the sheet didn't reach the back of the room. It seemed pointless to go to class. Attendance is only 10%, I showed maybe 3 times and each time regretted it because the lectur

long boring lectures. The lectures tend to ramble on. Attendence is taking by passing around a sign in sheet. Attendance is a small portion of your grade. There is one paper for the class worth a portion of your grade, and another portion of your grade is from the final.

The people that gave Fedi a bad rating are probably the ones that don't show up to class. If you show up (not sign the attendance sheet and leave) and listen you will pass. Make sure you go on his website and study the interactive quizzes to see where you're at before you take the final, then you should be okay. Fedi Rocks!! =)

You can't understand him and he wants so much effort for a pointless class. He may be nice, but he is horrible and boring at teaching. He judges you off of a paper and exam. The paper takes time and the exam is to complex for a HUI class. Don't take this class!

he's a really nice guy, and doesn't make you feel like an idiot if you say something wrong. but his class is SOOO boring and pointless. he begins conversations about topics that not everyone can participate in and then gets annoyed that there is little participation. avoid having him for 411 if you can!!

HUI216 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dry and boring classes, mandates attendance but puts no effort into making classes useful or interesting, expects students to remember minute and ultimately unimportant details about everything. Powerpoint presentations are ridiculously long, and come in addition to readings of plays, articles, textbook, etc. Avoid at all costs.

He's nice, italian accent. w Go to lecture, focus during lecture, take down notes,& you should be fine. Do not start start Paper at the last min, bad idea! plan before hand, and submit early so he can tell u ways to improve your grade. 1 midterm,1final, 1 paper. Textbook used only 2X, mainly assigned readings. lectures are important= 80% of exam

Follow these steps and you'll do well in the class. 1. Never miss a lecture(attendance counts) 2. Hand in your essay before its due to get it looked over that way you can improve it. 3. E-mail comments and questions to the professor regarding the lectures(participation counts) 4. Study your notes for the midterm and final...Good Luck!

He's a very nice guy, but very unclear. He spends the entire class talking and referring to a very wordy power point presentation. Too much information, too little time. :-/

Fedi is awesome. As long as you go to class you will do well. His lectures can put you to sleep, but the slides that he stresses are important and will be on his tests. For the papers just be organized and stay on topic. ( you can hand them in ahead of time to be checked over).
