90% of test material comes from his powerpoints, so it's important to attend class! (extra credit for attendance) Dr. Corra is very funny and makes otherwise very boring info relevant. As long as you come to class and pay attention you'll end up with a pretty good grade.

Good communication but the subject matter hindered an otherwise good class. I think some of the tests should be modified because they come word for word out of the book and don't really test your knowledge.

SOCI2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Distance Ed. class. Corra is extremely set in stone on his course syllabus guidelines. You have three times to take a quiz. If you get a 85 the first time and take it the second time and get a 56 because you doubted yourself on the extremely specific questions, you get a 56 on the quiz. Discussion boards: 2 per chap. Do NOT take!

DE course, Reading the chapters is mandatory, quiz every two chapters, which is good compared to 5 and 6 chapters at a time. Two DB post and 2 response per chp but no minimum word count required, study and turn in ALL assignments on time. Easy A!!

I would avoid taking his class if you can. His tests are SO hard and specific. He reads straight from ppts and doesn't post them online. You HAVE to read the text. He's not that helpful and acts annoyed w his students. The class is very boring and nothing but stats. I managed a B but it was just luck. I got the same grades whether I studied or not.

Socio2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Corra is probably the worst professor I've had in my life (attended Duke before). His demands for a summer online course were intense and unforgiving. I aced all of the discussion boards, but the quizzes were practically Kantian in comprehension requirements. Harsh and unforgiving person in general which led to many issues in an easy subject.

I feel this class is demanding online. Discussion relate to reading topics, however, grading on them seems to be harsh. I worked really hard in this class.

I don't recommend this instructor. Took 6 week summer session online and was worked to death! Quizzes timed and extremely difficult. Mid-term and final not so easy either. Time consuming discussion boards and impossible to score great on them. Class was rather disorganized with confusing due dates.

soci2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him this semester and his class was truely enjoyable. He gives 2 tests and 3 quizzes. The 3rd quiz is optional, depending on how well you feel you did on your other quizzes and he lets you retake a test. If you study the online notes and take notes in class, you'll be fine. I didnt even buy the book and I made a 93%

I got an 'A' but this was the toughest class I've had in my two years at ECU. Dr. Corra stresses important points during class, but if you want to do well on the test, be sure to read the text. We also had group projects and a fairly easy research assignment during the semester.

Class could get boring, but he was very funny. He gave us study guides, but I learned after the first test that you really need to read all of the stuff from the chapters VERY well. Didn't have to take the final because I was satisfied with my grades and he gave us that option.

Dr. Corra is an awesome professor! His classes are boring at times but he knows his stuff. Attendace is not mandatory, but it pays to be in class. Test and quizzes are easy, as long as you take notes (which he provides on the overhead). Easy A!

Dr. Corra is a great teacher. As long a you study the study guide you will get a "A" on the exam. Be sure to go all of the classes because he gives extra point.

dont expect an easy A. his test are very hard and some of the information does not come from the study guide. some of the stuff i had NEVER seen before. does give points on your final average if you have extremely good attendance

Dr. Corra is great..he gives you so many opportunities to do good in his class. Just make sure you go to class and take notes..that' just essential. He gave extra credit and lets you retake a test at the end of the semester.
