Come to class, take notes, turn in your assignments on time. Purdy is funny to listen to and the class is easy. There's only a handful of assignments.

I really enjoyed Dr. Purdy's class. It's not a hard class if you show up and take notes and put at least a little effort into it.

This professor pushes you to excel, making you want to learn how and why people think the way they do. Show up to class, ask questions, and show interest and you will learn enough to pass with an easy B or A for your grade. Bonus: know how to write properly to get a good grade.

He kept the class interesting, very experienced in his field. Must stay attentive in lectures or you will miss a lot. Overall good teacher.

This was a **** of a class...way to hard for a 101 class. He is fun to listen to but what he talks about has nothing to do with what you are tested on. Don't take SOC 101 with him

Dean Purdy sucks. I hated his class. His lectures had nothing to do with the readings or with the tests. The tests were abnormally hard. Without the curve my class' average was a 33%. So I guess what tells you what a horrible teacher he is. I hope he gets fired...

I though Dean Purdy was really nice and he always made the class laugh. You do have to attend class regularly if you plan to pass because he does give 3 pop quizzes. You also have to do a paper, but its not that bad if you try. I liked Dean Purdy!

He gives pop quizzes and on the second pop quiz he asked one question that could be interpreted in two different ways and the majority of the class did horrible on it. If you don't do well on the quizzes your grade is pretty much screwed.

He was a really bad teacher. Always got off the subject. Never reviewed for exam.

Great class, uses good examples and uses slides for lecture. Downfall, having to work with a partner on major paper.
