ARCH290 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A great class, lectures were entertaining and interesting. Professor is eccentric, but the good kind of eccentric. Humorous, engaging, approachable. You MUST attend class and take good notes. Use of supplemental materials (documentaries, Internet) and the book are helpful to maximize retention of info. Recommended.

ARCH290H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class is very interesting and you will learn a lot. The test are somewhat easy and there are only four. If you can make it through the 3 hour per week lecture you'll be fine. The teacher is interesting and funny. The class was enjoyable and relaxed. The test are exactly the same as the notes and all you have to do it study a little bit.

His class is informative...but you should be a quick writer and a good picture sketcher! Just travel with him from ancient civilazations to mordern periods!

He's the craziest professor I ever had...he likes to throw his markers across the projector screen here and there. I've heard some pretty interesting stories about him...despite all of this, he's informative/highly opinionated, which makes the class even more interesting.

Prof Manuck is an acquired taste. His style is unique, but very effective. His grading system is fair and his tests will leave you high and dry if you didn't pay attention in class. I suggest using a digital voice recorder during lecture and a computer to take notes as you will be required to recognize certain buildings during tests.

he seems mean and rude, but actually he will teach you something that no other architecture instructor teaches. i didn't like him and dropped his class. but the next semester i had to take him, so i took his class and now i respect him and learned something.

Arch205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is sometimes rude to people and very negative sometimes. Talks about his life often and goes off topic almost every class meeting. Not very helpful at times because he expects you to know EVERYTHING. I took his history class and thought he was cool until I took this class.

He has a strange sense of humor that keeps you entertained. His class is interesting if architecture is something you are really passionate about. Other than that it is quite boring but, easy.

Arch296 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Super nice professor. The lecture is BORING and he'll throw the marker at the board to wake the class. Lecture doesn't really correlate with test. You need to study! Not an easy class, but do-able. You have to do the exc paper to get an A

cool subject, but theres a reality to it and you do have to study, almost every thing on the test is from his lecture notes and on power point, even his side comments on the whiteboard are on the test, got a B cause i didnt do the term paper at the end, do that, and ull pass with a great memory, hes funny, loves subject, good environment

Fun Class!!! Manuck is a nut but makes the class so fun. If you like architecture you will find lectures intertaining. No homework and only 4 test. Take notes and you will get an A. Kind of a long class but goes by very fast.

No homework. 4 Tests, best 3 count and a cumulative final. Lectures are a bit long but lets you out early if finished early. He can be a bit weird at times but it is just part of his personality.
