Great class, great teacher. If anyone needs the textbook I'm selling it for much cheaper than the NCC store. For more info, e-mail me at jcogz43 @ gmail

Vessels was a good professor and pretty funny. Goes off track a lot ao you need to pay attention to what you need to know. Doesn't use the board so you need to take good notes. Tests are writing definitions of terms and essays you need to memorize the review sheet which took time. A little tough on grading papers but was fair in my opinion.

Professor Vessels is one of the best professors at NCC. He makes the course interesting, makes your mornings better. Only thing, you have to study hard, specially before the two tests, midterm and final. I got A, he is so fair! Miss him! I recommend him, if you are a serious student.

he digresses WAY too much. when he was able to stay on topic he was very helpful and informative. he was also honest & not afraid to admit if he was not an expert on certain subjects. he is a good professor but i would have enjoyed this class a lot more if he hadn't strayed from the topic as often as he did.

Not the easiest going, but he's fair. He pushes students to make sure work is done correctly, college level not h.s. level (so he says) Not very clear at times, but pay attention & take notes b/c he never writes on board & it will be on midterm/final & put effort into assignments. Not so much an easy A, but not a tough A either...but its still an A

Prof. Vessels is a very funny professor, and his jokes are really hularious, and hes very nice, but when it comes to taking notes, hes is very unclear and unorganized. He talks way too fast and it's almost impossible to write the notes. His tests require a lot of studying from rev. sheet. but it's ok. Just keep up with his weekly writing.

Whoever didn't like this professor is probably just a slacker because Vessels is one of the BEST teachers I have ever had. He's hilarious, outgoing, LOUD but always keeps me interested! Only has a midterm and a final but they are all short anwser which I think is easier in my opinion. He talks about his ex wife and his love for whiskey. So funny!!
