Primov is a wonderful human, he has experienced sociology first hand though his studies and other walks of life, he knows so much about what he teaches that using the text isn't necessary. I wish i could take him for more of my classes. His tests were all written and had two questions one based on the book and one based on lecture.

Primov is amazing. His lectures are pretty independent from the assigned readings but they definitely do compliment one another. He has awesome stories and experiences, is super approachable and very passionate about sociology. You're not going to want to miss a class, but make sure you read if you expect to do well on the exams.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is a reachable A but not an easy one. You MUST read the textbook and keep up with the lectures. Tests are 50 MC with 1/2 from book 1/2 from lectures. 5 exams. Interesting lecturer. I enjoyed the class, just a lot of work to get an A.

I find his lectures very interesting, but when it comes to his tests, they're pretty hard. A little more than half comes from the textbook and those questions from the textbook are vague... It's hard to study for the textbook ques on the test. He also doesn't curve grades and doesn't give pluses or minuses.

Not great. Although a passionate lecturer, his tests are surprisingly hard, and to do well on them, you would probably have to read the whole textbook, which is quite boring. If I could just sit in on his class without the tests, I absolutely would, but with grades, it's not too worth it.

What a terrible person. His tests require so much effort just to get a B. I've spent more time studying for this class than Orgo and I'm still not sure i will get an A. Do not take this guy, he should at least curve. He's so unfair.

Very unfair tester. He doesnt curve even if everyone in the class gets a B, he wont care. His tests are 54% off the book that he never teaches or opens in class, the other 46% comes from the lectures. He is very picky with the textbook questions too. I got an A but had to spend so much unnecessary time studying for this class. Dont pick him

Awesome teacher. Really cool guy. Sat through a class taught by him before attending UM. Was so pleasantly surprised to see he was the same professor I had for Intro. The fact that 1st semester Freshman year I woke up at 8am 2x per week for his course and didn't mind is a testament to his awesomeness.
