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!

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...

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!

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

Great teacher, but tough class. Read the book!!! The exam is all memorization, which is difficult to do with how boring some of this material is. But larry does a great job in lecture

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

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)

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.

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.

3 (multiple choice) non-cumulative exams make up your grade. Really friendly, funny, and helpful (if you go to office hours). Course is easy if you read the 2 textbooks, and memorize lecture slides. Easy B or A-, really has to work for an A.

Redundant course. Not really practical. Basically a test of "how good is your memory?". Tonnes of material, out-of-the-book questions on exam, little focus on real issues. Exams are hard, material is easy relatively.

There's not a ton of material in this class. Inks enjoys talking about his experiences in business rather than the general theories listed in the text. Most of the material is something we'll have to experience rather than memorize, so I found the class pretty squishy and worthless. HR701's better title is "The Life of Larry Inks"

Dr. Inks is a great teacher. His lectures are very helpful for once you graduate school. Know the powerpoints and the definitions from the book and you should at least get a B.

one of the best professors i had in FCOB, makes class interesting , shows clips and movies, loves teaching , and is very easy to talk to. just dont be an idiot , pay attention and try to apply some of it to your own life. thats all he is asking. great class. but imo way too many models.

Larry Inks is the man! One of the coolest professors in the entire Fisher College. Great outside of class and pretty effective inside the classroom as well.
