Preachy and patronizing. Presents very boring lectures. Tries hard to be funny but he's not. Has a noticeable accent but he's understandable.

Out of all my teachers Benibo has definitely been one of my favorites. It's all lecture but he makes the subject very interesting and he's really funny too. His tests come straight from the notes so as long as you pay attention, come to every class and write good notes its an easy A. I recommend everyone to take his class!

As a first year student, I had the honor and privilege of having Dr. Benibo for two classes in one semester. In both classes I was completely focused on his teachings, as he presented the material very professionally. Dr. Benibo is a very intellegent man, & what I learned from him will last me a life-time. He opened my eyes!

Dr.Benibo is a really great professor! He is a mine of information and experience and his class is really a cultural experience! I really enjoyed it, though I must say, I think he mentioned at one point that he is a pastor because he does mention God a lot, but not too much to interfere with the info if you're not religious, overall, great prof!!

Thought for sure that it was going to be the most boring class ever because it has nothing to do with my major but ended up being one of the highlights of the semester! Dr. Benibo is a great professor. Take notes, go to EVERY class, read chapters and you will get an A. I learned so much. Kinda happy now that the university requires you to take it.

Great professor! Exams are based off material from the book and his lecture. He usually outlines the notes on the board for you so just listen and write what he says and you'll do great.

Dr. Benibo is one of the greatest professors i've taken. his experiences are just wonderful and very interesting to hear. his class seems hard because he relies heavily on his essay-type exams but it really isn't that bad. i'd probably write down every word he says if i were you. definitely recommend him! Race & Ethnics is a great class to take.

Dr. Benibo is an AMAZING Professor! His tests are essay form and they are tough but if you learn how to take notes from him (which i did so anyone can) and take the time to do the study guide for his tests, then you can get an A! I would say take at least one of his classes...especially if you are a Sociology major or minor.

Dr.Benibo is quite an interesting personality. He has jokes and real life experience. He knows his subjects and is a great lecturer. Be prepared to have hand cramps from writing so much down though!

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

WRITE DOWN EVERY SINGLE WORD HE SAYS VERBATIM then repeat on the exam. He had a grader a while ago who tipped me off to this and it works. Textbooks were not necessary for me in any of the classes I took with Dr. Benibo.

He has a heavy accent and expects his students to write word by word what he says because he doesn't have any visuals. His tests are challenging but mastery is attainable if you do his study guide since that is the exact questions he will use for the test--essay format. Good Luck!

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

Agree with other ratings- his tests aredef pretty hard- must answer about 16 study questions and memeorize them since you do not know which ones will be on test- got smarter just taking his classes- disagreed with an answer he gave in lecture- and did so on test with scholarly ref for my backp and he gave me an A- a walking sociology dictionary-

Lots of SOCI Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Benibo...Where do I begin? I recommend a laptop to take notes - All the tests I took were essays - he expects at least 2 pages per answer and you can't really get an A unless you "think of an example of something that he's never thought of before" - But overall, I liked him...he's a good man...and he DEFINATELY knows his stuff.
