Worst teacher i have ever had! he's so unorganized and hard to fallow! H'e makes no sense and his test are really tough, and he expects way to much for what he's actually teacher. He literally just talks mostly about his travels and showed us pictures of where's he's been.

I was extremely excited to take this class before it started. It seems to be a bit of a letdown though. The course is interesting and he goes off the textbook fairly consistently, no problems there. The problem comes that he Quizzes on material that hasn't been covered. Bit of a problem there. Open office, great guy. Wouldn't take his class.

He's a smart professor with a passion for history. The lectures can be a bit boring at times, but as long as you pay attention and use the study guides you will ace your tests.

This professor expects WAY too much of his students. Not the amount of assignments (which are a lot too) but the amount of detail required in our weekly responses/essays/whatever else is ridiculous. If you miss one minor detail, he'll mark you down into oblivion. If you aren't an eloquent history buff, getting a good grade will be difficult.

I took this class on Monday and Wednesdays for two hours. I literally woke up and already dreaded this class. He is so boring, whenever he talked I would read in the book, the reading you receive for the night is literally what he talks about in class. He sucks at grading and gives you B+/B grades which are unclear he says he goes by "percentage"

A supportive professor with a genuine interest in the student's understanding of the material. I suspect he loves the subject because it shows. He provided good supportive material that made the stories connect much better. Fantastic class.

He's very disorganized, random, and hard to follow. The class is extremely boring. If you come everyday and are able to stay awake enough to take good notes, you should do well. Study guides never helped me on the tests, the topics are just way too broad. Maybe a cool guy deep down but teaching isn't his calling in life.

Boring, unorganized, repetitive, loves to interrupt. He doesn't teach new material, just repeats what is in the book. Save yourself from his messy handwriting and poor teaching skills. I just spent the whole quarter in his class pondering what we were actually learning...

cons:unorganized, rambles, boring, critique's and deducts points for dumb reasons, incomprehensible essay feedback. pros: passing grade is 50%, if you attend every day, take good notes and study hard, you should do well.

Doan is a tough teacher in that he expects you to know about the subject before he teaches it in class. Unorganized and doesn't really tell you what chapter you are in. His feedback to essays and quizzes are difficult to understand. 3 text quizzes and 4 map quizzes. the textbook will be your best friend on tests, all answers will be in there.

TERRIBLE TEACHER. He is very disorganized. There is either a text quiz or map quiz or exam in every single class until the end of the quarter. This class is so much work, and he spends all his time not getting to the point. Yet he has high standards when grading our papers.

He is quite possibly the most distracted and disorganized teacher I've ever had. In his 101 history of civilization at the moment and he just rambles! I'm lucky this is my favorite subject, if I had no or little knowledge i'd fail.

Hard to follow his lectures. He would ramble off on different topics. I would not recommend him as a professor to take.

He's one of the easiest teachers I've had. He lectures and shows clips a lot but that is enough to get A's on all his tests. I haven't even opened the book yet. In his 210 course there is a lot going on so he has to bounce around but he gives you the timeline. He's also really forgiving about late work. He's a good teacher and very passionate.

I am an older student, taking a summer class. His grading is inconsistent. WHen doing quizzes or tests it is all over the place. You better memorize all the books or you will never pass his class. He doesn't tell you what to study for and you have an abundance of reading.Forget taking other classes,this one requires all your attention. :)

Doan is possibly the worst teacher I've ever had. I was completely unable to follow anything he ever said. He rarely ever had powerpoints, and he rambled constantly about topics that had absolutely nothing to do with what we were actually learning. The only way I survived this class was by reading the textbook. DO NOT TAKE HIM.
