PH202 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Cares for his students. Writes all his notes out on the board while he talks about them as well. Take home tests up until the final. Make sure to copy everything on the board and be elaborate on tests (essays). You'll get an easy A then.

Great guy, easy class. Tests are take home. Just copy down everything he says in class, and regurgitate it on the take home test. Easy A if you take notes. Not a lot of reading b/c he tells you everything you need to know.

Lots of detailed notes, but if you copy his notes down you will do well in the class. Very good at explaining the readings so you really don't have to do any reading on your own

PH01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He's a great guy who cares about his students. His class can be boring at times and yes like everyone else said you have to take gooood notes! He gives 3 tests that are taken straight out of the notes and a final. He's pretty funny and an interesting guy a little easier on girls, but w/e. I ended up getting an A- in his class. Definitely take it

AMAZING! I am majoring because of him. If you go to class and take notes you will do fine, tests are take home and word for word from the notes. He can be really funny if you listen to him too. Class can be dry and long at times but all around great class.

Very nice man. Take good notes copy them stright onto the take home tests and you should do fine. Extreamly knowledgable he knows his stuff and you can tell hes one of those teachers that is really passionate about his field. I loved him as person and actually took a lot out of his class. I dont recommend missing classes, notes are important!

If there is a prof on campus who will leave you wanting to be a philospher, it's this guy. His understsnding of the material is unbelievable. His notes may be messy, but his ideas are incredible.

Existentialism Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very nice professor, always willing to talk and help out when he can. Handwriting is messy, though, so don't be afraid to ask him to repeat himself. You should do fine as long as you take enough notes and repeat whatever was discussed in class. All tests other than final are take-home. Easy A if you know what you're doing.
