"Participation matters" "Hilarious" "Respected by students"

Chris is a great teacher. He has been teaching this since some time now and he is very clear with whatever he teaches in class. He grades the assignments very easily but fairly so just put some time in each assignment. Class over all is very easy. Just memorise all the slides.

"Participation matters" "Better Like Group Projects"

TA for 304. Discussions are easy, had lecture every other week. Lots of group projects, and you need to buy the book.

Participation in the ELC is necessary, HW for lec/disc are graded on effort. The midterm was pretty straightforward, so was the final. Memorize the video lectures and powerpoints from lecture, discussion, and video. It will help! dont just memorize from the video. The book is useless, dont buy. Groups are useless!! Go to his office hours, hes nice!

Chris is great! If you can, take him! If you participate, the class is very doable. He is a very fair grader and wants you to do well. Watch the video lectures and memorize all the slides and you'll get a good grade.

304 is a mandatory for business majors, and it's structured so the discussion instructors basically do everything. So, if you're having issues with your grade, GO SEE CHRIS!!! He is extremely helpful/clear and wants you to succeed. Other tips: Watch the video lectures, have him go over your study guide before tests, and participate a lot in class!

Bresnahan is the TA for the class and thus teaches the discussion, although he never teaches anything useful or even reviews the online lectures... but he and Tolan grade similarly so dont be stressed. I surprisingly got an A in all my classes but this, so I suggest going to office hours and get him to like and help you- also for the group proj.s!

Chris is amazing! He has a good sense of communication and knows what his students want. Go once or twice to the office hours and you will not have a problem. He's fun but, he means business though

Chris is a great, energetic and funny professor. I really enjoyed this class - his discussions are interesting and the work in the ELC is fun. The homework is easy, I got full marks on all. I only went to his discussions (I went to 1 lecture the whole semester) and I still got an A. In the exams you just need to apply a lot of terms!

Bresnahan articulates course topics in clear, concise fashion. Has students work in groups in many of the discussion sections, that and going to the ELC for simulations. Course isn't very difficult in content, but in order to get a good grade you need to demonstrate mastery. Participate a lot, as it helps your grade - to see if you deserve a 'bump'

Energetic teacher who makes the somewhat bland information come to real life with examples. Memorizing everything is how you get a good grade in this class. The concepts are cool and I learned a lot about myself, but this class takes basic ideas and turns them into overcomplicated theories that made me furious. Average class overall

This class was really difficult overall, and not that well structured. Chris helps you get through it all, even if it is a pain. He is entertaining, open to meeting and will talk you to death during office hours. Work hard and you should do well. Excellent experience with him. Meh course...

He is pretty "straight forward" and isn't that hard. Memorize every word on every slide and you'll do ok, but DON'T try to wing it. Just memorize and review the book and you should get a B or higher!
