If you find yourself about to take one of Thompson's courses, RUN Transfer out of it as soon as possible. Do an e-Permit, transfer to a different CUNY college if you have to or something. This man will ruin your academic career. Aside from not knowing any of the material not being organized for any of his lectures, this man grades you based on

soc 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

You only get an A in his class if you stoop to his level.He takes things personal,you get graded based upon your attitude not hard work. So if you want an A just be nice to him.He told me I write too much like the English. He needs God. He picks the students he will give A's from the first week of his class. He is not organized, needs to retire.

He is not organized,students get good grades based upon their attitude,if you give responses that he is against he will take it to heart or take it personal. Regardless of how hard you work in this class the only way you can get an A is if you stoop to his level, worship him, and play nice. He told me I wrote like the "British." He needs God.

SOC25300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Too much personal life stuff, he is OK but will avoid him in the future. Hard grader. For the tests he provided a list of terminology terms for us to study and will add some other additional secret terms not added on the list. Sometimes he starts talking about one thing and switches to the other, gets you lost. Contradicts himself a lot.

This class wasn't as easy as I imagined it would be, but it was a good course, not what I expected but good nonetheless. Thompson is a great professor, I've already taken 4 classes with him and will Miss Him greatly. Advise: Be on his Good side, don't speak rudely or disrespectful; he hates that. He's a grammar freak so STUDY LOTZ!

Be prepared to study! You won't be able to pass his class if you don't read the chapters assigned to you. I barely made it out of that class with a B-.

SOC266 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I agree with the person who said this course is like sitting with uncle on the dinner table. He is not easy anymore. He makes you buy around 3 books and he gives A LOT of extra articles for you to read. His comments are quite blunt and rude, which fits with most of the people who take this course. Avoid taking Family Relationships with him.

His Family Relationship class is not easy as everyone says. He makes you buy and read so many books and articles, especially for an elective class. The people who take this course has the typical high school attitude and mentality. All he does is read from the text and he isn't very clear. If you have a demanding course load avoid taking this class

He is a very laid back and funny professor. Read the textbook and listen to him talk in class and there's no way you can't pass his class. Answers to exams come right out of the the text book. Come to class and you will pass.

he does talk alot about his family but i think it makes it easier for some to relate with the material. lecture is straight from the book but if its a class you have to take its a fun class good to pay attention b/c exams are tricky multiple choice sometimes. overall fun and easy to just go through the material. dont expect intensive lectures.

First of all this class is a joke. He teaches straight from the book, except that he doesn't teach at all. He basically makes fun of people, and refers to his daughter 99% of the time. (BTW she came to our class and she is rude.) He confuses himself when he speaks, and swears he said something when he really didn't. You won't learn anything here.

His course in family relations probably won't teach you very much that you don't already know but he's a very nice guy and an easy grader (his reliance on personal anecdotes can be a bit annoying though).

He really wants his students to do well, he jokes around and intertwine his real life stories with his lessons. He tells exactly what to expect on the test well before hand.

In class Professor Thompson would mostly read from the textbook and get into interesting discussions. He's a funny guy, and he likes talking about his family a lot. The tests were pretty straightforward, except for the second one which he forgot to tell us all that we had to study. One book review, which wasnt too difficult.

Prof.Thompson is great. I read negative comments, which I disagree with. He've educated for years, which demonstrate his knowledge.You need 2 do the papers & if u need extra time speak 2 him ahead of time.Midterm & final r take home because he may not understand ur hand-writing. shrt papers 3/4pgs, it is easy if u do your work, go 2 his office hrs.
