He doesn't teach the class, rather puts up the syllabus, then you take your exams off another site, the grade is automated by the site, and so forth. There are no discussions, just tests, quite an uninteresting class, and an uninterested professor. Take for an easy A, but don't take if you are looking for something to hold your interest.

This professor was by far the worst I have ever had, I had nothing but technical issues all semester and I emailed him 5+ time and not once did he take the time to email me back, honestly I don't know how he can call himself a professor because he was no help at all.

By far one of the worst professors I have ever had. Can't understand anything he says and does not clarify or explain any assignments or questions you may have. Does not respond to any emails. The textbook and movies are way out of date and not relevant to our day in age. Would stay away from this class if possible.

He is useless, shows movies that are way out of date. The textbook he uses is out of date as well. Only talkedabout Africa when the class was supposed to be about the U.S. Would not recommend taking the class with him. His TA was more helpful than he was.

Useless, unclear and shows outdated videos.Takes attendance.Only loved the class when his TA (Believe his name was Oz)was there.TA was a good role model and probably much better than Raymond. Will recommend to take the class only if his TA is around. Just go talk to his TA and he will help you out.

This professor has a very difficult to understand accent. He only comes half the time to class and leaves the rest of the class periods to his teaching assistant who shows videos. There are only 2 tests a midterm and a final which was nice. The test are all multiple choice and true/false(probably because he wouldn't ave to actually grade them.

This class was very interesting. Raymond tells you from the beginning to stick to assignment deadlines, don't slack and you will be very happy at the end of the course. Like any professor he wants the student to take an interest and put forth their best effort. My questions were answered promptly. I did need the textbook. No complaints here!

He teaches core classes so you're stuck taking his classes. The MSU is not interested in hearing the frustration the students are having...so just suck it up and get through...Their program will be gone in a few years because no one will recommend it to others, That's what happens when upper management doesn't listen.

I took this class online and he is by far the worst professor i have EVER had. He doesn't care at all about his students and shouldn't even call himself a professor. He has his assistant Frank do everything for him, who is also useless. All of my emails went unanswered. You don't need the book, just patience to sit through hours of pointless movies

He is Rude and mean. he doesnt understand english very well. if you dont have an assignment done on time he will yell at you infront of the entire class. if you try to say something to him or ask to clarify the notes he will yell at you. dont take his class unless you love to be yelled at because it happens daily even when you dont do anything bad

You have to really listen because he does have an accent but he recognizes that and makes an extra effort to make sure you understand. As long as you pay attention and do the readings, you will do well in the class. Very interesting films and topics. Very fair in grading and cares that his students learn.

The most frusterating teacher I have had. Has no structure to the class, when lecturing it is incoherent rambling. Accent really creates a barrior I can honestly say I did not learn anything from this class.

Raymond is a great teacher. Very intelligent human being. My only complaint is that his accent really gets in the way of what hes trying to say.

He's a great teacher. Very willing to help you - he gave the class one of the test answers because it wasn't on the study guide! Very interesting to talk to as well.

This guy is NOT a good teacher! You can tell that he knows the material and knows what he's talking about, but he sucks at telling you about it. He's really hard to understand b/c of his thick accent and is TOTALLY disorganized. You will never know what or when things are due & his tests are really weird. Don't buy the books, don't take his class!!

Raymond is a great professor and is very interested in what he teaches. He's really easy too. You hardly ever take notes. He sends all his powerpoints to you. Only one test and then the final, which comes straight from the powerpoints. Don't buy the books because you won't use them.
