Excellent professor. Kind of hard to get used to at first but afterwards becomes very funny and understandable. Makes taking notes incredibly easy. I didn't even buy the text. I just used the notes when studying and never got lower than a b+. Exams are hard but he pretty much tells you what's going to be on them the day before.

He was funny...thats about it. Even with studying I could barley pass his tests. The textbook assigned is horrible. He talks very fast, and does not repeat himself. I found the class boring, and he was really unclear with the subjects to study. He is a nice man, but not a good teacher.

Straight forward, gives you the whole roundabout of Sociology, gives you great examples and loves to help. Doesn't care about lateness and your overall grade is your test average. So if you ace your tests, you will get an A or an A+. Highly recommended.

I loved him he's very punctual and hard working. Believe me work with him and he'll definitely work with you. He's not much of a Blackboard or e-mailer however, he's a very good professor trust me! Good Luck =)

The man is funny and pretty interesting. He has a problem where if you ask him a critical question regarding the topic, he will get red and after yelling for a bit he will disregard your question. Then he will come to you before the class the next day and apologize and answer your question. Never opened the textbook and easy tests based on notes.

Professor Wilkes is wonderful! He is extremely knowledgeable in his field, giving examples and situations for every new topic. His sometimes old fashioned views bring some comedy to the classroom...especially when rap music is discussed. Make sure to keep up with the text readings and take good notes. The exams are very difficult if you don't.

He is an adorable little man but DO NOT take as a night class. It gets very sleepy. I dont agree with not reading the textbook. I took good nmotes and did perfect on his exams and i red the text book chapters once and saw questions from the book that he did not teach. Although notes are the key and he explains very well.Do well on 1st quiz =)

He's class is very boring, but it's carefree, no stress at all. He only count midterm and final as the grade. He gave 1 quiz, but if u get low grade on this quiz, he won't count it. I didn't need to read the text book at all because i took notes and he explain very clearly. All i did was review the notes for my midterm and final. So u can do it too

lmao well it is true that he is very boring. I had him once a week on Wednesdays for 3 hours and felt like i was going to die. I found myself drifting into lala land and missing things that he was lecturing about. I'm sorry I couldn't help it, I tried to stay alert in his class but my brain tuned him out lol. Biggest advice take a tape recorder

Prof.Wilkes is ok his class could be a little boring but u do learn. He stick 2 the subject & writes on the board. if u copy all the notes & do the bonus credit u will pass the class. Buy the book it helps. 1 last thing he doesn't accumulate the exams which is fair & there's no surpurises either. Overall if u take Wilkes your in good hands.

This professor is a wonderful old man. Usually he adds about 5 points to each quizz and tests that he gives. His tests are very easy. There are not that many of them about 3 for the whole semester. He uses Richard T. Schafer "Sociology: a brief introduction", 6th edition. He is very sweet and funny. Take him!!
