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.

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.

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

He is a very intelligent professor with informative lectures. Tests and quizzes are a mixture of both in-class material and textbook readings, so it is beneficial to attend class. There is also a daunting ten page term paper that will require an adequate amount of research. He is a great professor, but his lectures can be boring and repetitive.

Prof. Craig is great with informative and engaging lectures. Make sure to take good notes and read the book because the midterm and final require "fill in the blank" answers. Show up everyday so you get your points for participation and you will succeed in this class!

This class is generally feared the most amongst the Physics series. This guy doesn't make it very scary. His tests dont have any surprises and he makes you understand concepts. Nothing really bad about him, id recommend him

What a great teacher. He makes lecture interesting and fun. Also, attending lecture is important because it's a big percent of the grade. He remembers when you show up and participate. Overall, its a good class!

I loved professor Craig! he is very interesting and has a passion for journalism. he seems over qualified for this position. There is one very long term paper but it is interesting and not hard to pull off a good grade. I got an A in the class and was very inspired by him. he makes this class fun!

Don't bother buying the textbook.Get on his good side by pretending to be interested in his long-winded stories, which take up most of class time.I learned absolutely nothing from this man.Cross your fingers and hope that you get semi-responsible group members.Don't bother going above and beyond. You'll get the same grade as if you do the minimum.

Prof. Craig is a nice guy. The quizzes, midterm, and final are moderately easy if you study and read the book. He grades the term project pretty hard, so make sure you follow the directions exactly. Classes are interesting if you like the area of mass media and he makes it fun. Make sure you show up for class cause his lectures are on the tests.

Craig is a nice guy, but his teaching methods are whack. He constantly goes off on a random tangent all the time. He has 4 quizzes and drops the lowest grade. Midterm is a nightmare. If your answers are not what he's expects, he'll grade you down A LOT. I'm actually thinking about dropping out of this class. Take this class at your own discretion

he's awesome! Interesting topics and lectures, he makes a lot of jokes and he's very funny! Attendance is important because the quizzes include details about what he said in class, but they are not hard at all. The term paper should be about 15 pages long, he can help you but he maybe doesn't have time to answer clearly to all the mails.

If u come 2 class & read the book u shld be fine. Don't try 2 over-analyze. When you're writing the report, give your opinion as much as possible & do the bare minimum- no prof wants to read an in-depth, gazillion page paper. I didn't like the class but that's because he didn't expect much from students & wasn't very helpful when I asked 4 advice.

He does not teach much in this class. He assigns group projects, and most of class time is spent working on those. He is happy to help if any problems occur. I learned a lot through hands on experience, but little from him.

Great teacher! I learned so much. This was a great class as an entryway to the Graduate Program. Craig is such an easy going teacher that makes everything more interesting. He is very knowledgeable of modern media and can easily relate to all his students. I'm going to take all of his classes!

He's very clear and enthusiastic. His powerpoint slides (available online) are a great reference for concepts, and he goes through good example problems on the board. He curves exams very generously, but if you pay attention in class & do the homework, you won't need the curve. If I had time for more physics classes, I'd definitely take 52 from him
