COMS 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

BEST TEACHER EVER!!! I do not say that lightly. This man won my heart online. He genuinely loves his students, and his job. Grading was a little slow, but you love him too much to care about that. He is more than willing to work with struggling students, he is more than fair, and so very helpful! I was scared out of my mind, and still managed an A.

COMS110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

COMS 110 being a Mass Communication course, it is slightly ironic that class was interrupted multiple times due to Prof. Lyster's inability to use a computer. His lectures are boring as dirt, and he doesn't seem to know a lot about the topics covered. His assignments and tests are a breeze, and so while it's an easy A, you won't learn much.

COMS110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you want an easy A, this is your class. I slept through his classes and read the study guide twice the night before test and got full scores. You really don't learn anything.Don't ever say you deserve an A for your project self-evaluation. He doesn't like that. sweet, boring, easy...

COMS234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Definitely the easiest professor I've had. Just do the assignments, and you'll be fine. Easy quizzes and no tests. He didn't really teach me anything, but I actually taught myself plenty for the assignments so it wasn't a total loss a class

Dr. Lyster is great if you want an easy A. He almost never lectures, he grades on the assignments and the exams. When he does lecture he can be dry as sand but he brings cookies at least once a semester and he will cancel class at least 3 or 4 times. He also makes a really great Santa Clause.

COMS110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Lyster is an incredibly boring lecturer (when he actually does lecture). He literally reads word for word his powerpoints. Incredibly easy class however, his study guides are exactly word for word straight from the exams. Very easy A but you really won't learn anything in this class. Nice guy, just not a great teacher.

He is the most monotone teacher ever. He likes to start every class with prayer requests and taking roll. He rarely lectures; he puts the power points up online, but his study guides- which he gives you the answers to, are straight from the test. This is the class to take if you want an EASY A. But not the class if you want to actually learn.

incredibly easy but incredibly boring too. All he really cares about is journalism. that's what we learn most about in his class. Easy A, and allows a lot of missed classes.

He is the sweetest, nicest, caring, grandpa-type man ever. He is THEE most boring lecturer though (I suggest coffee). You can still learn a lot with the textbook. It's an easy A (but don't be dumb, you still have to do your work).

Dr. Lyster is one of the best teachers at LIberty. Very Humble, I learned a lot in hs class, especially on how to overcome my phobia of public speaking. He gives a study guide for all his test! and he is an easy grader for speeches. I would recommend him to anyone, he also cooks cookies and susage balls and he will dress up as Santa...Great Guy!

Dr. Lyster is probably a great guy, but the class is a little time consuming for a DLP class that has time restraints. There are 16 quizzes, 4 exams that take a full 2 1/2 hours each to complete, a group paper, and 3 speeches which all require quite a bit of research and time. The class was a requirement for me, but again way too extensive!

Best teacher ever, when I took him, he was actually Santa at the mall and came into class one day in his santa outfit! Easy A, he gives you a study guide for the tests, study that and you'll make an A, the test questions are directly from it. You have a like 4 speeches, but he is such an easy grader. If you take him, you will not regret it.

He is the best! He showed a genuine interest in our well being as students and was consistent and funny. He is one of my favorite teachers and actually made the class worth going to.
