BIS 302 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Awesome class! Took this class during the summer session so it was super accelerated. Do you work and meet the deadlines and you should do fine. Best teacher I've had in the past three years at ASU.

Great class. Professor requires thorough discussion board responses. A lot of reading and writing, but if you are willing to put in the time, he'll reward you with an A.

BIS 302 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Excellent professor. Took BIS 301 with him as well. Provides weekly modules that outline required work step by step. Lots of work but easy to understand and follow through. Very interesting research topics learned. Try your best and he will reward you.

BIS302 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A-

7 week class. Lots of assignments but not too difficult. Provides a little feedback but not too much. Each week depends on the next so you need to understand the class the first two weeks or you will hate yourself final time if you picked a bad topic. LISTEN TO POWER POINTS! 18 assignment and 1 extra credit. Lots of discussion and peer evaluations.

Super easy class as long as you show up for every class he will give extra credit. No homework or tests just papers and discussion. Class is super boring, papers easy as long as you follow direction.

BIS402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Four, five pg papers thats it, no quizzes, tests or final! There is a TON of reading if you actually do it, but its not necessary! I didnt read anything practically BS'ed my papers and still passed with an A. Also, he gives 15 pts ex crdt for not missing a class. If your looking for a a relaxed prof and an easy class highly recommend!

BIS302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took his summer class. FAST paced & TONS of work in a short amount of time. He gives minimal feedback on assignments, which is a problem when each one relies on the previous. I was extremely frustrated throughout the course. Dr P always answered my questions and emails..But wasn't the "passionate" prof I was hoping for.

Great professor! Very knowledgable. He keeps you thinking. I took his BIS 301 and 302 class as well as his Spirituality course and I would take more if I could.If you are not open minded don't take his class. Very limited book use, and he does make you buy them. I would suggest sharing a book with someone.

took 301 &302 this semester. Although it seemed demanding at first, it wasn't bad at all. I'm taking him for 402 in the Spring. He's a great teacher who keeps the class interested. Perfect attendance earns you 15 extra credit pts, why not go? For 302, read for the quizzes. They're not as common sense as one might think. I learned the hard way oops

BIS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took his winter session class for BIS 301 and was amazed with how passionate he is about his job as a teacher. He talks about his real life experiences to help you better explain certain situations. You can almost always reach him outside of class and even a semester after taking his class he remembers my name when he sees me. Great teacher,TAKE!

Great teacher. Makes you really think about where your life is going and how you're going to get there. Plus the extra credit points if you attend every class (Summer Session).

I had Pryzdia for BIS 301, 302, 401 and 402. He is the most passionate teacher I have ever met at ASU. Class is fun and his teaching style is open-architecture. You would be missing out if you did not take atleast one class with him.

He is a rather nice teacher. He sometimes rambles on during his lectures but is overall a good teacher who is trying to help students learn. He is a great teacher for BIS 301 and 302.

BIS302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr Pryzdia is a good teacher who uses a practical approach to teach different research methods. If you do the readings you will do well on his 4 quizzes. There are 3 projects: Annotated bibliography, Lit review, and content analysis. He ended up making the content analysis optional and he would drop your lowest grade if you decide to do it.
