Religion 111 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Your grade is based on five exams. I recommend going to class to get the notes because he only gives you an outline and you have to complete the outline by listening to him lecture. Does not give extra credit.

"Inspirational" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

Awesome professor, basically have to attend class in order to pass this class. Super clear about what he is trying to get across and what will be on the exam. The exams are short and hard.

"Tests? Not many" "Would take again" "Respected by students"

Great teacher. He is very understanding and the class is easy Tests are not hard as long as you go over the notes but he does not post notes or email them so if you miss class you have to get notes from another student. He is More than willing to help !

RELN 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He sets up every lecture with an outline so you can go back through your notes to find exactly what it is you need to know. Attendance is not mandatory, but the exams come straight from the lecture and the lectures are pretty interesting at times so try not to miss! Really easy class if you go, take notes,& just look over the notes before the exam!

He is such an amazing teacher. He shows real interest into what he teaches. His tests are exactly what he lectures about in class. If you miss class you'll have a rough time but if you go to class it should be an easy A or B.

This is probably one of my favorite classes i've taken at RU. Turner just lays out the facts, and he does so in a non biased way. Probably one of my favorite professors!

Turner is an awesome teacher. He is very helpful and if you ever want to talk of something irrelevant to class he will be happy to stay and talk. His tests are easy and he's a great teacher. His tests usually stick to notes but skim over the text just in case.

AMAZING TEACHER! I went to every single class and I could listen to him talk all day. You wont do well if you don't go to class or study your notes. You don't need your book but it is helpful. If you need this class and you have Turner you are lucky!

I had Dr. Turner for both Religion 111 and 205. He is so not a hard professor, at all. It's call reading the book people and in reality if that's not for you he takes all of his tests directly from the notes. There are not a ton of grades, but this means no homework and the tests are spelled out for you in the notes. Makes you write an essay.

Very easy teacher. You can miss no more than 2 classes before you loose attendance credit. Take good notes and you can do well on tests without reading the text books

Carter Turner is one of the coolest professors i've had, he may have an attendance policy but his class is actually really interesting. His Tests are not hard at all but there is a paper at the end of the semester. Turner is a great professor and tries to make students think about situations from every side.

Turner is a terrible professor. Very liberal and tries to play Politics into the class as much as possible (bash Repub.). Tests are way to difficult, and the material is VERY difficult to understand, mainly due to his lack of teaching and failure to get the material across efficiently. STRICT Attendance Policy, only miss 2 classes. Low # of Grades!

Oh my gosh! Love this man! He is hott plus he really engages you in class, if you like what he is teaching then you are gold. I sit in the front and he can tell that I love what is being taught and that I am engaged. I did my Prof. interview on his and it was great. Just be chill with him and he will be chill with you. If you love it he'll love you
