MTG 490 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Midterm is real hard but curved. Simulation is fun until the end. Make sure you pick your group right.

MTG 490 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Class is OK, professor is really good. He's not easy like in 350 but helpful and having two tries at the paper helps a lot. MIdterm is tough, but he curves it a lot.

Keeps class moving along, keeps it interesting. Lots of examples. Take great notes and it shouldn't be too difficult.

MGT350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He tries to be funny but isn't, calls people out if he thinks you look bored, and gives way too many quizzes. Don't take notes on the computer, write them as he won't let you use electronic notes on open book quizzes. Tests are easy, except the fill in the blank section which can drop you down 1-2 grades. Also, doesn't round, at all.

His tests are not easy. He is a great guy and you will learn a lot. Make sure to take really good notes and laugh at his corny jokes--he likes it when you do.

He is a great teacher. As long as you go to class and take notes and study the notes you will get an A and the tests. He tells you everything you need to know for the tests and it is easy material.

MTG688 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Over all a good class but he is very hard on grades, tests are not that hard, if you read his notes you'll be fine. I had a simulation to run with a team,(our team just had 2 of us against 4-5 ppl in other teams), but he still did not consider the fact, any ways I'm sure I deserved an 'A' but walked out unhappy:(

THE BEST MARKETING PROFESSOR HANDS DOWN! I have had O'Brien for both MTG490 and MTG350 and both classes were the most interesting and insightful classes I took at Bradley. He is intelligent and will help you as much as you need outside of class. I went to every class and reviewed the text book and got 98% on all of my tests and a 98% in the class.

mtg350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Really good class. One of my favorites at Bradley. Goes slow enough to cover almost all the material (so much so that you don't really need the book) but keeps the class interesting through examples and humor. Let us drop both and exam and a quiz. Worst part of class was the whiners in the class who used computers and complained about quizzes.

Worst professor at Bradley university. He makes way too many jokes that have no relevance to the class. Also don't trust his syllabus or what he says on day one because he will change it mid semester. Useless excuse for a teacher happy I walked out with a B. Matt, I know that you read these and I want to let you know that I didnt give you a chili pepper. I figured you could make another lame joke about it in class

Great prof! Helps a lot, gives study sessions but tests are hard. Go to class and it is an easy C, some work for a B, and tough A.

MTG315 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is a required class for many majors. He was funny and tried to make class fun and interesting. He admitted when information was going to be dry and he tried to get through it quickly. He says we use the book but as long as you attend class and use his lectures you will be good. Some questions come straight from the book but not many.

This class was a drag. He's a nice guy, but his examples in class are always about himself, and he trys to be funny and he's not. His tests are hard and the group paper is a HUGE waste of time. I have never written about such useless information in my life. He will not round grades even if you have a 8.999%.

He's tougher in this than in consumer behavior. He grades the marketing plans and the tests stricter, so make sure you do them right. Also, make sure you pick a good group that you can count on...it sounds arrogant, but I got a B because the other members of my group sucked on their parts of the marketing plans. Great teacher and a great class!

Best teacher at Bradley hands down!! Had 2 classes with him so far, and I just signed up for another for next semester! Not easy at all...but going to class, taking good notes, and studying are a guaranteed A. Fun class. Great teacher. Awesome experience.

cool teacher, cool class, just couldn't grasp everything. He is very knowledgeable about the course, but he is realistically the stereotypical college professor, he doesn't round if your at 89.9%, and he doesn't really care if you fail or not. Good teacher, funny, and will take again

The cases are a grind, one every week, but no textbook. He keeps the class relevant and let us pick the topic areas. The topics and cases are hit or miss, but he is pretty good. Helpful and fair.
