"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

While he is a cool teacher, if you fail a test and dont improve on the 2nd you basically fail the course, beg for extra help he will just say, "it wont help" if he doesnt like you he will not look to pass you. lectures are long and hard to understand.

Hes literally an awesome guy! He makes class very interesting and PHI 101 is fairly easy considering we only have 4 tests, and they are essay questions! He's a great professor, take him for philosophy!

I had Professor Halfron for my fall 2012 semester&he was amazing! He says read the textbook but you can still get an A w/o it. He explains in simple english, is funny, and even if you miss a class, guarantee next class he basically sums up the class before. His test are super easy&if you email him with questions before the test he appreciates it

Dr. Halfon is the best. he gives you the pages to read and goes over everything thoroughly in class. Very funny and interesting guy to talk to! He is very helpful and reviews before each test. if you do the reading and pay attention in class you can get an A. He also gives extra credit assignments.

Great professor.He's very funny and makes class extremely interesting. His lectures may seem confusing but as long as you read the text book and take notes, you should do fine.It is very possible to get an A in his class.He's one of the nicest, most reasonable professors I've ever had. He may come across as arrogant but that is a misrepresentation.

This class was definitley an easy one. He is a very funny guy and often enjoys just talking for alittle before starting class. Before every test he tells your every single topic that will be on it and even tells you what pages to study in the textbook! Attendance is mandatory and do not take out your cellphone!

Very solid teacher. Nothing special by any means about him hes just a solid to good teacher. Learned a lot in class. He can be a bit of a prickley negative man so do your'e best to get on his good side and dont mess up. Other then that his tests are fine. Don't cut corners which includes reading the book paying attention taking note ask q's=A

Halfon is awesome! Really smart guy, lectures are never boring and the class actually relates to real life. You will learn a lot and Halfon is more than willing to help when needed. I'm sad I only got to take one class with him, I would definitely recommend him enthusiastically, all in all one of my favorite classes at Nassau

He is such a goofball always cracking jokes but an awesome professor. He is very understanding and doesnt mind helping you out if you ask. The textbook is super important in his class as well as good notes. Make sure to have both to get a decent grade.

It is a tough class but you can get a high grade if you do the reading and go to class. I got an "A" and my friend got a "D," but she did not read much of the book.

Great Teacher! He captivates the attention of his students and keeps them interested through his humor. If you read the text, your more than good. Even if you don't read the text you still have a chance to get at least a B if you take good notes. Easy Test. Easy A
