I had police operations as well as intro to criminal justice with him. He is so easy as long as you read the textbook. He is also funny. I would strongly recommend him.

I took Professor Darden's course online and it was very manageable. There was one assignment due each week, which was plenty of time to complete it. He grades quickly and is an easy grader. Gives lots of time to take the tests which is very nice. Great teacher, highly recommend, will definitely take his online courses again!

i took a lecture so attendance was no mandatory. boring class, all we did was take notes and no homework, just 4 tests which is not helpful if you arent a test taker!! he will help if u ask him, but does not do well with going over test material, just lots of reading for everyone in the textbook! every chapter u must read!

Easily one of the best teachers at COD. He knows what he's doing and is very informative, due to his many years in Law Enforcement. If you do the work, pay attention in class, and go every day, it's an easy A. I've had him for CrimJ 1100 and 2410. I'm looking forward to taking another one of his classes.

One of the best professors I've had! He is extremely intelligent and knows the important stuff about this subject! He's there to give you facts not ramble on about his opinion! I learned a lot, but his tests are not easy. Very specific and you have to student. A couple papers are assigned. LOVED this class!

Simply stated: if you are serious about criminal justice, this is the professor you need to have. His expectations were established right off the bat and he was clear as to what the class entailed. Learned alot and got an A. Fun guy, but don't cross him. I would definitely not want to be on his bad side.

He is the best teacher I have ever had!! His teaching style and his stories are amazing! I love the way that he relates to us as a class by sharing his own experiences. He is very knowledgeable and has so much information to share. I love that he shares life skills that will help us in the future. I will most definitely be taking another one of h

He is the best teacher I ever had. He talks about his police days and relates it to class to help us. Damn good teacher but at the same time intimidating. lol. I would recommend him for future classes. A little bit cocky but still cool.

MY FIRST C AT COD.. This class is hard regardless of the teacher but he is funny. Although an extremely tough teacher/grader. NOT A SLACK OFF CLASS. DOES NOT TAKE ATTENDENCE. NEVER CAN USE NOTES FOR TESTS.

Good, FAIR teacher. If you slack off and do not pay attention, you will fail the tests. Being an "easy grader" doesn't make a teacher a good teacher. That's why I like Theo, he TEACHES!! I actually learned a lot in his class and now have a much better understanding of CJ. This is a basic course, it's not rocket science! - Lazy people be warned!!

Its funny, if you're expecting to be treated like a child then dont take this class. Great teacher who knows ALOT and will teach you a lot, the man knows his stuff and will let you know that. Very helpful and if you read the texts and pay attention in class guaranteed a B and if you work hard you'll see a nice A.

Mr. Darden wants you to think he is the greatest professor of all time. He is always boasting about his achievements. In his own mind he does no wrong. He simply reminds students he has a PHD and numerous other accolades. Dozens of students emailed him about what the grade scale even means and he blamed them for it not being clear enough.
