MCOM 72 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. Don't skip lectures. Generally, he knows who comes and who doesn't - he's a tiny bit more favorable to those who always go to lecture. I started the term paper 2 days before it was due and got an A in it - follow the instructions carefully. pick out your sources a bit earlier though.

MCOM 72 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worse professor I've had at SJSU. He only gives one major assignment which is a term paper which he gives no help in and expects to be written at a journalist level. Don't take his class

JOUR 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He cares more for this class than mcom 72, which is great. Attendance is not mandatory, but he will notice if you are gone! He knows everybody by name. This is a great class! They are online and in-class and he is tricky about his questions. Midterm and final are in the same format. Don't buy the books. Paper is important, do your investigating!!!!

He's a really greta professor! He likes to engage with the students so there are always class discussions but it makes class interesting. He tells you to buy the books but i literally haven't opened one of them one time, so don't do it! but it is important that you go to class, he'll notice if your gone. & all the quizes/tests are online its great!

Mcom72 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

His lectures were so good I would go even when I was dead hung over. Great professor. Go to class everyday and you'll pass. Don't buy the book cause you won't ever use it. There is a 8-10 page report but it's not deathly difficult. I strongly recommend him.

MCOM 72 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Teacher is really cool, he makes this class interesting, this semester attendance was required as quiz material was mostly from lecture, only very little was from the book. Do the term paper accurately and you will receive an A

He is a cool professor. Quizzes are very easy. Midterm and Term papers are NO JOKE. I was extremely confused by the term paper and will not be surprised if it greatly drops my grade. Class would be great if the term paper was not included.

Great teacher, very energetic and funny. Quizzes aren't so bad, just pay attention in lectures and you'll be fine. Also theres is 10pg research paper but just don't procrastinate and you'll be fine.

MCOM103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good teacher. TIPS!: most of the questions on his exams are based on what he lectured in class! so take good notes & go to class. the book is just for reference and to get more background knowledge. He does assign a 12 page paper! so do it early do not wait the last minute like i did, easy grader and does curve grade scale for exams.

Prof. Craig is great with giving energetic, engaging lectures and in my opinion has a great sense of humor. He's extremely helpful if you go to his office hours but his tests are pretty comprehensive and the 10-12 page term paper can be stressful. Definitely need to go to class since what he goes over is always on the exams
