"Inspirational" "Tough Grader" "Gives good feedback"

I thought Dr. Joe was excellent. The grading was fair but not studying would hurt you. Please make sure to study. He provides all of the words and handouts. Study them and it is a piece of cake.

Never bite the hand that feeds you. Knocks on students who attend community college. Remember this Joe, a community college signs your paychecks, and oh by the way didn't you start at one?

I definitely would not recommend this teacher. Although he grades very easily on your online forums, his paper grading is very harsh. I received a D on a paper and his comment as to why is that it was "average", and average at the college level is passing. Also gives lecture power points but half the info for tests you have to look up on your own.

If you want a teacher who doesn't respond to your concerns and questions and gives you 40 minutes to complete an 80 question test hen this is your teacher

I'm not sure about some of the posts. Dr. Boyle was great. He really wants everyone to get a degree. i wish everyone was like him.

TERRIBLE! I am an A/B student and I'm doing terrible in his class. All he wants to talk about is how Brookdale students have a very low success rate. His grading scale is impossible and he does not even give you a clue what will be on exams. He prides himself on being a hard professor. WORST PROFESSOR EVER.

He was just a great guy. He really showed me how to pick a transfer school. He talked about how to not avoid losing credits. Tests can be hard.

Dr. Boyle was very fair. I thought his class was clear. I also found it quite easy. If you just keep up with the work, you will be fine.

His grading is very hard. I have written many many papers and always do well, but I received a C from him. His tests are hard and he is not very clear on the material that is on them. He said for the test it would be just definitions but it was way more than that. Also he expects you to be on to respond to forums every day, which is ridiculous.

Dr. Boyle thinks that community college classes are too easy, and he prides himself on making his classes a little more difficult. I got an A, but only because I worked my butt off. I'm a decent writer, and I only got a B on two of the three papers. He genuinely wants you to be prepared for the real world, and for that, I liked him.

Not a hard class/teacher! First I wasn't sure if I could trust everything that he said. I wanted to believe him because he's my teacher, but some stuff just seemed wrong. After time, I liked him. He def wants you to become better students for the real world. He's looking out for your best interest. Great wake-up call to the slackers at B-dale.

Dr. Boyle is the ideal professor for anyone interested in learning and becoming smarter, not just get an easy A for aesthetic purposes. All of the material is applicable to the real world and he starts every class by answering all of the questions in the question box used for attendance. He truly cares about his students and his lectures.

I thought his class was an easy A. Just 3 exams, 3 papers, and plenty of extra credit. No homework. It's a lot of studying, but he gives you everything you need. College = work. College =/= handouts. Don't take him if you're a slacker.

CJU245 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the worst professors I've ever had. He's obnoxious and thinks his views and opinions are the only right ones. His online class is ridiculous. He feels the need to critique grammar like he's an English major and basically makes you feel like whatever you've written has no value. Pompous, arrogant, and his grading scale is hard.
