"Would take again"

If all of my online classes were like this one, I would take so many more credits. His class is so easy if you know how to follow directions. Each week you have either a quiz or a 3-5 page essay. There are a total of 5 essays and 8 quizzes for this class and quizzes take about 20 mins and essays take 1-2 hours PER WEEK. Easiest online class yet.

SOC 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Quizzes are easy and straight from the book. No final, but there are 5 papers due throughout the semester. Very strict paper guidelines so always double check to make sure you have it right. Not terrible, but I have had better.

SOC-101-NIN1 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I would not recommend this instructor to anyone. Very unprofessional. Worst instructor I've ever had. Assigns essay's every other week with test the week between essay's. If taking other classes...I strongly suggests against his class. Very time consuming!!!!

Bob can be funny, but he can and will also hurt your feelings. I did pretty good in the class over all, but I miscounted my pages for a paper once and he said he wouldn't accept it and gave me a 0, taking my grade from A to C... He is very strict...

SOC101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His online quizzes can be passed easily enough by browsing the glossary in the textbook. The topics of the essays assigned throughout the semester were seemingly pretty pointless, as was the entire online course. His emails struck me as curt and lacked proper grammar. I do not recommend taking this course to fill a social science elective.

Bob is the greatest teacher I have ever experienced at any level. He keeps the classes attention and is interested in you as a person. His tests are easy if you put in the time to study. Class is never dull with him and if you do not mind a prof who swears then he is a must take for Soc. Looking forward to taking Soc 210 with him in the spring.

Had him for online SOC 101 - as long as you read, it's an easy class with one assignment per week. Just make sure you follow his formatting guidelines for papers.

Great teacher! He's a funny guy who doesn't mind laughing. he drops the "F" bomb a lot so if you can't take cussing, you'd hate the class. Very strict guidelines, test are hard if you don't study. I would recommend him...hopefully he teaches the other SOC classes I have to take.

CCAC for 3 years & this guy was easily my favorite. Knowledgeable, personable, helpful, hilarious. You will learn a lot and enjoy it. The tests are hard but not if you show up and do the study guides.

Great teacher who actually takes time to get to know his students.Had him more than a year ago and he addresses me by name when I see him in the halls.Take note because his tests are based on his lectures and you will get an A.

Excellent professor. You must have a sense of humor and know how to follow strict guidelines. Bob is there to teach, but loves to joke around. Just make sure that you study and do your work.

Excellent teacher who made me want to come to class. He kept things interesting every day, but you do have to study, his tests are not easy. If you want to learn, I recommend him.

He really knows his stuff when he actually talks about his subject at hand. He very easily gets off track and talks about other things, but that can make you pay attention more and not dose off. His test and papers arnt as hard as everyone makes them out to be. Study and pay attention in class and you'll be fine.

First things first. Bob is a pretty decent teacher when it comes to his knowledge of the subject and lecturing abilities. All of this is over shadowed by his lack of professionalism and need to appear cool and relevant to the class. Put a filter on your mouth and keep up the crusade against stupidity, Bob!

A good teacher overall. However, he will call you out and even embarrass you whether he means to or not. He has a foul mouth as well, he'll drop a few "f" bombs every lecture. A nice man and a good teacher, nonetheless.

Bob is an awesome teacher! If I were a Soc. major I'd take all of his classes.. but unfortunately I'm not. If SOC-210-SC01 (Soc. Sexual Behavior) is ever offered again, TAKE IT! ;)
