"Hilarious" "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

Great professor overall. You don't have to show up for lectures or buy the books but of course your grade would be better if you did. He is very clear in lecture and entertaining to listen to. There are 5 mandatory days; 2 test days and 3 "classwork" days.

"Tests are tough"

Tests are very difficult. Everything sounds so obvious in class then the exams are so detailed. Good guy, terrible professor. I'd go to him with questions in real life HR, but he doesn't get that most of us aren't majors in HR. Way too hard for what it should be.

"Clear grading criteria" "Tests are tough" "Respected by students"

This is a very hard class, don't get me wrong, but Dr. Inks is the best professor I've had at Fisher. Always willing to meet with students and is very interesting to talk to. He is a useful source to find out how corporate HR departments work and what they want in a employee when you are looking for an internship or job.

I dont know what everyone is talking about. If you go to class and read the text book you can easily get a good grade in the class. Lots of memorization but he doesn't get to tricky on the exams. You either will know the material or wont.

Pretty much everything that needs to be said has been said. He's a great lecturer, very engaging. Quite a decent person, approachable and willing to help students. Just be prepared for a lot of memorization, some exam questions come directly from the book which I didn't buy, but I still got through. Not a bad class overall, go Larry!

BUSMHR 3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: D+

If you have a high gpa, take this class in your last semester because the grade you earn won't be factored into latin honors. This class is abhorrent to the ideals of higher education - pure memorization of pp slides and textbook definitions that are not applicable to the real world, unless you're majoring in hr...

BUSHMR 2291 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took this class as a distance learning class from the Newark campus. Dr. Inks is a excellent instructor and really cares about helping his students understand and apply the material.To get an A, you have to do well with the take-aways, memorize ALL of the slides, and know the definitions from the book. This was a great class!

BUSMHR3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a great professor and keeps the class engaged during lectures. His tests are pure memorization from the lecture notes. The only reason you need the textbook is for the vocabulary terms, which he will ask about on the exam. There are opportunities to earn extra credit. Go to class because he will ask questions on the exam straight from lecture

BUSMHR 3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a hot silver fox that is genuinely interested in helping students. 3 exams based on memorizing charts and highlighted terms in the textbooks as well as 3 "takeways" which he tells you the dates of ahead of time. They are easy opinion questions. There is no reason to not do well, the notes are online and we had the chance to get extra credit.

Larry is the best prof I have had yet at this school. He made me want to attend lecture and he is really knowledgable. Down to Earth guy that shows clips and things that keeps students interested. His tests ar not easy by any means. Must know the material very well to get an A

MHR701 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

There's a few things to know about this class. for one, larry is a good guy. however, his tests are utterly pointless. in most classes you can learn the material and be fine for a test. with him, it's all memorization. you have to memorize the 5 points of a start in clockwise order... come on larry. plus, his jokes are rehearsed (dr. fear)

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

Dr. Inks is a good teacher. He teaches you a lot of useful information that is helpful for interviewing and working. However, his tests are very hard. It's pretty much all memorization for 3 50 question tests. So if you can memorize everything you read and he says, then you're good. Not the easiest.

MHR710 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Basically the best teacher I have ever had. Makes the two hour class go by very fast and is very engaging. Never once fell asleep in class, he keeps you awake the whole time. Only reason you need the book is for the bold definition terms.. which is awesome. Tests aren't too bad if you attend class.

This is a class of memorizing other's opinions. Do NOT take it as a class you don't need to study for--it will not work out well for you. We received a total of 8 bonus points and a 1% curve, but just make sure you don't blow it off.

Dr Inks is basically THE MAN. If you approach this is just another requirement you'll dislike it, but if you just give it a shot and consider the implications of what you're studying and what he says, you'll be so much better for it. He's a great teacher, really surprised me. Take this with him.
