Philosophy Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Amazing lectures" "Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback"

I loved taking Philosophy with Mr. Davis. Expectations are clear cut, lectures are organized, everyone knows what they're supposed to do to get an A from day 2 becuz he gives written & verbal instructions. Very good about returning emails. READS each n every paper and gives specific feedback. Really wants you do to well and earn a gd grade.

Phil 25 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Although he was very confusing, he was helpful whenever I had any questions, he did his best to answer them. His tests are easy except for the 3rd quiz. You basically just have to write a paper turn in a few homework assignments, and do well in the quizzes and you'll get an A.

Professor Davis is a very intelligent man. He'll definitely challenge you to THINK about what texts and documents mean. He's not very structured but, that will require that YOU remain structured, attend class, and know what the hell is going on (read the material). This class will be hard for people who expect a college class to be like high school

Phylisophy 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Extreamly difcult class! He lectures in circles. Tests are extreamly hard to understand. Did not use a text book his tests are on hand outs and his lectures. If you take this class use a tape recorder. The group project was rediculous and is worth 40% of your grade. Most group members did not participate and I ended up doing all the work.

POLS005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If taking this class, you must be willing to actually attend, be involved, and think. Very dry sense of humor, but if you bring yours, it will be a very fun class. Davis is a very well-rounded, intelligent man. The rest of these reviewers likely failed; don't listen to them.

PHIL25 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very disappointing. Unclear and unorganized. Simply forgot to give students mandatory materials and web page information necessary for the class. Don't even try to offer your opinion because he will just shoot you down for it. This class should be called Philosophy 25 (The Glory of John Davis)
