1010 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B
"Would take again" "Tests? Not many" "Lectures are long"

All tests are online. Can look up every answer on google. Just show up for attendance and draw a pretty picture in your notebook or something. Gives good examples and can be funny as a bonus.

LAWS 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Terrible. Doesn't test on relevant material to what he lectures on. All tests are open book, although no one will ever receive a perfect grade. Doesn't test on anything that was lectured all tests are out of "the bin." This guy ruined my GPA. No homework, and forgets to test. Doesn't show up prepared or sometimes, at all. He should not teach at all

LAWS1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Didn't like him. He's very disorganized. I go to class to LEARN, not sit there and hear dumb stories that never make any sense. He gave maybe one or two quizzes the whole semester and didn't take attendance. He's boring to listen to and hard to follow at times. He never stays on point and if you ask a question he barely answers it.

LAW101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Pettis doesn't exactly teach out of your book...he comes right into the room, and starts lecturing what he experiences as a lawyer. He tends to repeat himself a little bit, but he gets his point across. Very smart, but a little disorganized, in my opinion. I have been in his class for weeks and he still hasn't come up with a quiz or test.

Criminal Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This guy is the man. He's like a mix of pee wee herman, and the principle from problem child. I would take every class with this guy if I could. He a little repdative, but thats because he lets everyone skip his class. Just show up once a week and you'll do fine. Pettis, YOU ARE THE MAN!!

I took him while I was at CCRI and he was great! If I could take him again, I would! He's very easy going professor, very helpful, and yes he repeats things over and over again but he does that for a reason! His final will kick your ass!!
