I am taking his summer class. hes a nice guy and good teacher. however he gives an enourmess amount of work and doesnt care that you are taking other classes. no lateness and no late hand ins. he expects you to read over 100 pages in a night and write a 4 -5 page paper on it and its due the next day

if your a slacker this is not the class for you he gives work that's doable, the beginning is not bad but he is really tedious as far as writing your papers your practically on your own because he's bad at explaining

eng102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

YOU MUST ATTEND. PERIOD. You MUST give it 110%, because he does n he is 3 times your age. A LOT LOT of work: ton of reading and RRJ's. Hard if it is summer session. If you are a slacker- HE IS NOT FOR YOU. I watched him bring two chicks to tears over some b/s. Zero tolerence for b/s.DO not take him in the summer, esp. if you have other classes!

I had Professor Friedman last semester and LOVED his class! There are a lot of reading and writing assignments; don't take the class if you can't be bothered to complete them. Prof Friedman cares a lot about the class and he's passionate about English and Literature. I learned a lot from him. He doesn't belittle anyone. He's pretty funny too!

Excellant professor!! Dr. Friedman gives ample work but is always willing to help you. He expects 100% effort because he always gives 110%. Very funny as well, great class.

This is a discussion based class so you must do reading. RRJ's were a pain but he does them to ensure people read the stories assigned. 3 papers given, 3 pgs each+works cited and 3 in class writings. Do your work and participate you should get at least a B. Prof F. has a wicked sense of humor but no patience for crybabies who don't do anything.

He is a good teacher. The class is easy if u read and do all of the assignments. The RRJ could be a pain in the ... but you learn a lot! and class is very interesting. 3 in class writings, 3 short research papers on a short story, poem, and play ( minimum 3 pages + works cited) I would recommend him, I really enjoyed his class.

his teachers class is nothing more than an exercise in tedium if you want to learn how to do critical reading then this is the class for it, the problem is he wont help you or teach you how to do that he will just assign you reading. save your money and your time just read for 3 hours a week and watch stand and deliver. there you go class dismissed

This class is a lot of work, but its doable. If you are a decent writer then this class will not be difficult. There is no textbook, but he changes the course readings every semester
