Prof. Bobys is really easy, I didn't even use the textbook. I took him again because he's nice and almost guaranteed A. We had a paper and I think we had 2 tests. Honors option with him is a short report on a museum. Class was chill and enjoyable, but don't go in with super heavy expectations. Talks alot about personal experiences.

Interesting class, a ton of work and no spring break. But he is really quick with grading and leaves comments.Exams were okay but you definitely have to study a lot for them. Would recommend him to anyone who would actually like learn something about sociology. If you are looking for an easy A class, keep looking!

BEST CLASS IVE EVER TAKEN! He's very interesting to listen to. Tests were relatively easy as long as you show up to class. Very understanding. Super nice! A lot of people would stay overtime to continue talking about the subjects we discussed. I looked forward to every class. Wish I could take another class with him. TAKE IT!!! You won't regret it.

Rambles on & on. Likes to talk about growing up in DC & living in Idaho. He mentions Idaho quite a lot. He's full of interesting stories. Very understanding professor. There are 3 tests, no homework and a paper. Easy class if you pay attention. The textbook is a necessity unless you have an uncanny memory and remember everything in class. Take him

Took the morning class twice a week, but it was totally worth it! There are only two quizzes, midterm and final essays, and one research paper. Skim the chapters, and you'll be fine for the tests!

Bobys Soc 200 online. Lots of reading & watching videos. 3 exams- 150 points each-consist of 30 multiple choice questions and 10 short answer questions. Apparently, he's a great teacher in person & I could tell he was very nice and understanding, but online was not my favorite & seemed like more work. Something to consider.Took dedication for my A.

Dr Bobys teaches sociology very well. His tests are two short answers and one multiple choice exam. For this class there are no power points so you just have to read the text and come prepared for class discussion. For his discussion in class you dont have to talk. One more thing every class he would always talk of his time in Iowa.

I absolutely loved taking soc201 with Bobys! He knows what he is talking about and he has a great sense of humor! His class is very easy, all exams are essay format. I'm not a great writer, but I still managed to do really well on all the exams. Easy A!
