MGT466 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst professors I have had at GV. WAY too many papers and it wasn't even SWS. Guidelines were very confusing and he would grade too harshly on things that were not in the rubric. As a non business student it was a hard class to take and so much challenging work even for a 400 level class. Don't take him if you can avoid it.

MGT466 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Unclear. Disrespectful when grading. Ridiculous amounts of papers, and it's not an SWS. Material is good, but he doesn't present it well. Grades you like you're a child and makes you feel like a child. Do not take this professor.

MGT366 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very unclear. Not helpful. Grades on english correctness when he himself doesnt have it mastered. Paper 2-3 pages single spaced and quiz each week. Causing GPA to bomb despite studying and attending every class. Very boring. Says "umm" 200+ times a hour. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR!!

This professor is ridiculously unclear. When you ask for clarification, he just confuses you more. He just talks through a power point and then assigns a lot of writing. It's not an SWS class, so I'm not sure why he assigned 8 papers.

MGT466 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very unclear. Grades very hard. Doesn't make sense. Makes you feel like you're stupid. Doesn't realize we are not all business majors. Assumes we will know what we're doing without any guidance. Mean.

Adisu judges mid-terms and final exams subjectively. Always ask to go over exams in class. He won't like it. Trust me, he judges WRONG on his exams. Go over them in class. Challenge him or FAIL.

PA370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He was pretty unorganized and extremely pedantic. When writing papers make sure they are properly formatted and the exact right length content didn't seem to matter at all. Test were pretty straight forward but the material was excruciatingly boring. He's also a bit over defensive. The day of the final was almost a riot. Lots of anger.

PA420 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Ugh, this teacher is the worst teacher i have had at Grand Valley. He answers questions by saying that he is perfectly clear. basically he will not teach you when you ask him for help. What he talks about is not what his exams are on. I attended every class, studied a ton, and read the chapters and still this class is bombing my GPA

PA420 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I have no idea why this professor is getting high ratings, but he is the worst professor I have ever had at Grand Valley. Maybe it's because PA 420 is not a management class? He is not clear and extremely defensive. Whenever we ask a question, he acts like we're unintelligent. He openly insults people in the class and will not listen.

As mentioned earlier, "getting on his good side" means actually going to class and participating....not that hard people. I got a B+ by doing the bare minimum. 3 or 4 quizzes aren't hard and make you learn the material so the midterm and final are super easy.

MGT333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Tests are hard and it's hard to prepare for them. He is very passionate about the subject but doesn't lecture on material you will be tested on. He will listen to you opinions and try and help when needed.

Class could have been interesting but this professor systematically destroyed a great subject. I attended class did the work but thats not enough, he is bias. Be on his good side if your in this class, if your not on his good side drop the class because he has no mercy.

Attendance is mandatory. Quizzes are easy, its all memorization. He grades the presentation really easy. However, the final exam and his grading on the final paper is ridiculous. His grading is inconsistent so make sure you get A's on everything because the final exam will kill your final grade.

MGT331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

quizzes are easy they are just straight memorization all fill in the blank and short answer. Multiple choice exams are tricky.He completely bashes the final research paper and will lower your final grade by at least a whole letter. Thats my biggest complaint. Not as bad as people say. if you fight with him he often will adjust your grade. boring!

One of the nicest teachers, very understanding. He is hard to undertand in lecture, but all you have to do to get an A in the class is learn the power points.

Ignore all of those other comments. As long as you go to class he is an awesome teacher. He will let you out early and has a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend taking him as your professor. It is not a hard class!

he starts off seeming nice, but as the semester goes on he turns into a terrible professor. no one can understand him because his accent is so bad. I would suggest leaving if you have a chance. his tests and quizs suck, he gives a study guide but he puts a lot of questions that are off other chapters not on the study guide.LEAVE

I went into this class thinking horrible things from what I had read and he has turned out to be my best teacher this semester. Gives study guides so tests and quizzes are easy. I would definitely recommend him.
