"Clear grading criteria" "Hilarious" "Tests? Not many"

This class was pretty cool. It consisted of 2 test(mt&final), a self-concept wheel, 3 1-page papers, & a 3 page essay. Overall, he's a good teacher. Teaches the subject in a relatable way. Not a hard grader, you just have to try. Couldn't say I was a fan of his personality. He was a bit pretentious and snarky. He looked like phillip seymour hoffman

Comm 9 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is easy and Berry is very upfront about what he expects you to know. The tests are NOT difficult. If you just go to class everyday and pay attention, you will get a B. To get an A you need to study and write college level papers. It should be common knowledge to not be late to a final. Just show up and turn in quality work.

Summer 14 - This class is NOT easy.Mr.Berry is nice and laidback, but his tests are no joke. He's funny and spends quite a bit talking about his life. Lecture can be interesting. Study your notes. Read the book if you really want to understand the concepts. Show up to class and dont be late!He almost failed two people for being late for the final.

Professor Berry is amazing. I am terrified of public speaking and he made the class a comfortable environment. He is a fair grader. You're in college, you get out of it what you put into it. Study, pay attention during lecture, and do not miss class. I recommend this class to everyone, you'll be missing out if you don't!

He's funny, he's interesting, always willing to help us learn. If you show up, participate and do your work there should be no reason to complain, just for those complainers out there:)

Good assignments that make it easy to get in front of class and he has a good sense of humor. Extremely helpful and puts students at ease while presenting. Pretty easy grader as long as you put in effort. Definitely recommend!

Never a dull moment in this class. He has a really great grasp of the subject and can explain concepts with familiar examples. The workload is light and the assignments are actually fun. He allows for discussion and awards participation points, so don't hold those opinions back!

I really enjoyed taking this class with this him. He is pretty funny and makes a lot of jokes. I took this course during the summer so attendance was very important. We didn’t have much homework, just a few journals. The midterm and final were both all multiple questions and were pretty easy, as long as you attended class and paid attention.

He actually made speaking in public seam easy and more comfortable that other instructors I've had in the past. He is fair and teaches in a way that is easy to digest. I got sick and couldn't make it for a test, you have to have a doctors note!!!!

Mr. Berry is animated, insightful, caring, and funny. He can at once be a down to earth guy, creating conversation topics the whole class can add to and laugh at, and an intense and serious professor who understands the breadth and depth of his subject. Got me interested in a subject I wasn't sure of. Few assignments, tricky tests, and a few presen
