Not as great as... i anticipated but the man knows his stuff! Hes a very admirable professor but if you want an interactive class, this is not the course to take. He does enjoy sharing stories about his worldly experiences but hes not much of a one on one man. The 3 exams take ALOT of effort! PREPARE! Ask TA for notes and DONT miss a class

Dr. Yeh is one of the best and most qualified teachers in the Sociology Dept. He knows his stuff. Dr. Yeh's classes are lecture base. I took two of his classes: 301 - m/c tests completely out of lecture(don't need text); 401 he won't teach again before retires. If you apply yourself, you'll thoroughly enjoy his class and learn a lot.

Really easy class. His lectures were very precise. Sometimes he even told the class when to add a comma! What was even better was that the exams were based directly off his lecture notes. I didn't even study for the tests, just read my notes briefly before class.

Professor Yeh is the biggest joker on the island. He looks like E.T. Although he is funny at times, everyday you will have at least 6 pages of notes. His tests are extremely tricky. For example, on the test it will say A, B, c= will be both and B D= all of the above and E= none of the above. Basically you need to know every answer.

SOC251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

"make a note of this" = take notes; test is exactly notes -test format is ridiculously easy and no trick questions, just know the info; has many "jokes" and stories; dont be late to class; some interesting info/topics; a bit odd, but fairly nice guy but doesnt hear? questions sometimes so he doesnt answer them necessarily..& has slight accent

Go to class every single day because there is attendance and all you do is take notes, and your notes is EXACTALLY like your test, but read the book too because he gives pg numbers and only those pgs are on the test. Study hard though and remember exact information because its on the tests!

He's a funny guy and the class is easy. I really liked how he talked slowly so we could write all those notes! And there's plenty of it - most of which are important to the tests. The tests are easy (the 2nd midterm was more difficult though) as long as you study the notes - no need for the textbook really. Awesome professor!

EXTREMELY STRAIGHT UP on what to expect on the exams. 3 non-cum exams=your grade. Def tries to side with the females in the class (class was almost all female too) So just be sure to think critacally of what he says. Study 5-10 hours for each of the three exams and your set for an A+

Smart funny man who knows his stuff. he gives jokes every now and then. He speaks slow so you can take great notes. Very interesting subject. I probably missed 2 to 3 classes cause it's not a hard or boring class. Take notes and you'll be good for the exams.

He's sucha kewl teacher!! He talks really slow, but you'll get used to it. His "I'm going to crack a joke now" is super funny. Think of an old man cracking sex jokes. He's very clear, use of examples is excellent. He's the type that he gives you definitions and clarifies in a personal example.

YES HE GOES WAAAY TOO SLOW. And the way he talks, you know hes so full of himself. His jokes are lame like no tomorrow. One of the very very few classes that actually make me want to sleep even though I am interested in the subject. Lectures seem easy but he grades hard.

Wonderfully funny guy. Spoke with an accent. Reminded me of a silly grandpa figure. Lectures were interesting. Exams easy-but you gotta do the readings. Hes available for help and is very nice. Possibly my favorite class at this university so far and i have been here for 3 years!

Great Professor. As long as you go to class & write down EXACTLY what he says you will do fine. His tests follow his lectures to a T. If your the type who skips, don't take him b/c you will have trouble on his tests. He is quite old & a slight accent so listen carefully but he does have lotsa great stories to tell. He is an overall great professor. I recommend him.
