I loved Dr.Downing! He's very nice and easy going. Very professional. His class isn't hard at all. Do the work and remember the work, it's not hard to get an A or B. He gives quizzes back with answers so take advantage and use quizzes to study for final. Final is 50%-85% all questions from previous quizzes. Help is great, he has labs to get answers

Alot harder than 259, we never met as a group, technology is a GREAT thing! Definitely read the textbook if you want to do well on quizzes, some things he doesn't cover. You can easily share a textbook with someone since it's online. He gets off topic alot, but still a great guy and tries to help if you need him.

Going to class is extremely helpful to get the homework done fast and correctly! One day a week is mandatory and the other you only have to show up on ur one day a month to finish group work. 7 quizes that are online from the beginning. TA's are very helpful in everything. Bring your laptop and do the work with him in class... BAM!

Dr. Downing is a very funny guy. He spells out the material. If you pay attention and keep up with homework, it's a pretty easy class. Another plus side is that class rarely goes the full scheduled time.

Dr. Downing is great! He does all the work on stage. All you have to do is watch. Additionally, he makes everyone create "skill videos" for a problem or two on covering EVERY HOMEWORK in the class = Never receive lower than a A on an assignment as long as you do it!

This is my first rating because Professor Downing is Awesome! I mean the guy has his own site instead of using boring ol'blackboard. How cool is that? Material can get a bit tough if you're not tech savvy but go to lectures, do well on the quizes* & get in a good group. You should be fine. He is very helpful unless you're a "Pinhead". I got an A.

Dr. Downing is a great teacher! He only requires you go to class once a week, most of your work is online, and then you take quizzes based off of the online material. Fairly easy stuff, his lectures were always clear and helpful, and I would recommemnd him to anyone!

Dr Downing is a good professor. He makes his lectures interesting. He give real life examples. You must go to class to get participation scores because he uses the clicker. He drops 1 quiz and 10% clicker questions. A lot of opportunity for extra credit points. Get in a good group for the VC Group oroject. ou will get at least a B.

Professor Downing is a great teacher. His lectures are mandatory and he uses real examples to incorporate what he is teaching. Pay attention to his powerpoints and clicker questions and the class should be simple.

Go to class answer the clicker questions. Go over the quizzes that ARE ONLINE a couple days before the quiz and it will be the easiest class you'll take.

Downing was a very interesting professor. He was very energetic and went off on random tangents a few times each class, but it still made for an entertaining course. I received an A by practicing the old quizzes online, reviewing the power points and clicker questions and somewhat reading the book. The information is boring, but Downing is not!

Dr. Downing is a terrific professor. He's really energetic ("So you just type this here and POW!! You got a webpage!"). Keep up with the homework and you'll do fine. The program shows you what to do step by step. I'd recommend this class to anyone, business major or not.
