PHIL C120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was ridiculously easy. A 200 word discussion post each week taken from 2-3 questions in the book. I didn't even read the book. He literally gives you the answers to the midtermfinal. One paper that is easily graded and an essay midterm that I doubt he reads, graded mine within 1 day. Often misspells and confuses answers on the reviews.

A breeze. If you don't get an A you didn't even try. Everything is layed out clearly. Do it you'll pass.

PHIL 115 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

Super easy A! Grades final paper for word count, midterm and final review have the answers, everything is done online. Weekly discussions required. Whether or not you learn anything is entirely up to you.

It was an easy class. The other Philosophy classes I attempted to take and dropped were ridiculously difficult. I'm so glad I took Covert's class. I loved it and it was an easy A.

PHIL 120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

EASY A! 10 discussion forums. 4 quizzes. Midterm, Midterm essay(easy), and Final, he gives you a study guide with answers. EXACTLY the same! One research paper that I think if you do it with the right guidelines, he gives you all the points! If you do all discussion, midterm, midterm essay, final, and paper, you'll get an A even if you bomb quizzes

PHIL115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Easy A class! You must do weekly discussion forums. He literally gives you the answers to everything including the midterm and final! He reminds us a lot via email. I actually was low on income so I wasn't able to buy the book, but am still passed with an A+. Everyone is so helpful on Discussion Forum. I would recommend taking his class.

Easy A but you have to do your work! Weekly discussion forums but the topics are always interesting. The only problem I had in this class was the time limit on quizzes and tests but it wasn't too bad bc he practically gives you the answers to everything! Very kind, responsive, and clear on everything. Some students are just idiots.

PHIL120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Easiest class ever to take for transfer requirements. Weekly discussion boards, which he probably just checks to make sure the answer is within the word count. MT and F, he gives you ALL of the possible Q&A for the tests. If you did not get an A in this class, there is something wrong with you. I ended up with over 110%

Such an easy class! Sends emails constantly with due date (or do date according to him lol) reminders. DF are easy. I doubt he even reads the answers. Gives answers to midterm/final ahead of time. I cant stand when people say they don't like him becuase his class is the easiest class ever!

PHIL115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Gives answers to midterm/final ahead of time so you get a 100% on both of them. DF are pretty easy and you just need to write one 1500 page essay. 15 pt EC, which is really easy to get. Easiest class I have ever taken.

Online class. Everything is online: Weekly discussion board posts, 4 quizzes, 2 tests. He gives u answers ahead of time for tests. One 1500 word paper on anything u want. Dont think he even reads them. Gives 3% EC. Very disorganized. Syllabus/lesson schedule had dates from long time ago all semester. Answers questions on board daily. Got over 100%.

EthicPhil Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Poor orginization, rude cap writing emails, drops students and re adds students on a weekly basis which boggs down administration. Time for this man to retire, if you take a course with this professor be sure to read your emails daily or you will be dropped. He is grumpy and obsessed with weekly assignments. Run!!!!!

PHIL120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great online class. He tends to get a bit unorganized with the instructions so you might need to email him to confirm. Discussion board assignment every week. There should be 10 quizzes, a midterm, and a final exam. There is also a required project paper worth 100 points (1500 word count). I would recommend this class because it is an easy A class!

EASY A......Time for him to retire because he sure is heck isn't teaching. Don't ask a question unless you would like to be insulted. That being said, I don't think I have ever taken an easier class. Highly recommended for those who want to meet critical thinking preq vs want to actually learn things. Answers to finals and midterms given in review.

Mr. Covert is a kind hearted man, despite his use of CAP LOCKS and sometimes mean words. I suggest he get a assistant/student aide to get his course organized. It is all over the place to be honest. Also, it's difficult to go over papers and posts with only one man over 100's of students. It's better to have 2.

This class was REALLY easy. Do the assignments with the correct word counts and go to the review sessions, and you'll get an A. He isn't always clear about when things are due because he constantly points students back to his unclear schedules instead of just giving dates and info. He uses CAPS LOCK all the time so may seem harsh, but he isn't.
