CJFS 1500 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: F

Awesome guy, but he should only be teaching upper level classes. I took his intro to CJFS as a filler for my poli sci degree and he teaches the class like all of his students are seniors. His exams are beyond difficult and he does absolutely no preparation for them. READ THE BOOK.

CJFS6920 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

He is on top of his stuff 100% his age brings experience and it's really a good time in class listening to him share his knowledge. Not an easy class, but completely manageable if you attend.

NEVER take him for the Intro to CJ class even if you're a CJ major! He should only be teaching upper level courses.

CJFS1500 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great guy but he tests you like you've been on the force w/him his whole life... I've attened every class, took all his "notes" on the board and still got a D on his first test. Attendance can be worth up to 12 points so don't miss OR leave early!

CJ5825 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall, if you are in law enforcement you will understand him very clearly. I recommend him because he brings need-to-know arguments up for discussion that are incorporated with the material, making the class as a whole interesting.

Dr. Pierce is awesome, I had him last semester. Make sure you sit closer to the front or you will have a hard time seeing what he writes on the chalk board. Also make sure you read the text book & go over the review. Do not mess up on the third test or you will be in trouble.

CJUS1500 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very funny man - however, his lectures seem to bounce around from him stories as a cop to important information. He isn't very clear on what you need to make note of and what is useless information. His tests were hard - my attendence grade saved me.

Pierce is amazing. He's funny and really helpful if you have questions. He makes the class easy to follow as long as you're doing what you need to (taking notes, etc.). He'll tell you exactly what to study for the tests. And the flowchart isn't as bad as everyone says. Take him!!
