CJ 331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

As long as you have a pulse, you should be able to get at least a B. His lectures tend to stray away from course content in the books and focus more on his life experience and opinion of the criminal justice system. Overall the course consisted of one multiple choice exam, one take home essay, and a group presentation.

cj351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Textbooks are main source of information. He knows the material but does not present it well. I've learned a good deal from his class. Assignments consist of writing and he encourages good writing skills. If writing papers and summaries is too much for you don't take the class. He provides a different outlook on cj that is quite interesting

CJ353 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is horrible! Fell asleep during a movie and the whole class left him sitting in the classroom after the class period was over! During presentations, he can barely keep his head up, let alone his eyes open! Also, all books required are books he or his friends wrote. Can't believe I had to pay tuition for this waste of time!

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

He was awful. I went to class three times. First day, middle semester to turn in the draft paper and end of semester to turn in the final paper. The ONLY project for the whole class was a 10 page paper. No requirement to read book if you're creative.

Worthless prof. Don't even have to go to class. He repeats himself daily and only talks about his experience in prison. You hear the same stories all the time. Doesn't stay to syllabus

Cj300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Don't read his book!! He doesn't test on it. Spends class time railing at the world and gloating about his books. I didnt mind though its beats listening to most professors material.

CJ355 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Any classes this man teaches are a waste of time. All he does is rail against religion and capitalism and even went so far as to claim that the world will inevitably evolve to a system of global communism. He claims to be a person who is open to different opinions, but in reality he is against any opinion but his own.

Not a hard class because you do nothing. Watch movies, or take a test, thats it. The tests are rough, very rough. You can't really study for them, so good luck.

corrections Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class just involves watching a lot of movies, but only went the full 3 hours i think twice or so, and we didn't even have class two of the weeks. just don't get behind in reading and you'll be fine. but DON'T read his book, he doesn't even give a test on it!! he goes over some exam questions right before the exam so listen up.
