Multimedia is a challenging and time consuming class but Chimbel is very helpful and wants to make you a better reporter.

Easy class and a good teacher. If you study for a couple of hours you should make a A or B on the tests. Show up to class because news and reading quizzes(easy) are 20% of final grade

Incredibly nice guy who loves what he's teaching. Completely willing to help you always. Make sure you attend class for clicker quizzes (basically every day). Great guy, easy class.

Prof. Chimbel really knows his stuff. He uses power points that relate directly to the "Intro. to Journalism" book, and class discussions for the "Elements of Journalism" book. Read the "Elements" book, because the points from the quizzes really add up! Also, there are news quizzes, so pay attention to the news! I recommend his class.

Like all intro classes, this one covers so much that it's hard to keep track sometimes. Tests were harder than expected. News quizzes and Elements (the book) quizzes can destroy your grade if you don't read or know the news. "No powerpoint" Friday's were so boring.

Chimbel is awesome! This class can be pretty boring at times, but all the ppts are posted to eCollege and the only test is the final. If you have a question he's extremely helpful. If you are considering a journalism major, he is a great introductory professor.

The class is pretty boring, but all the lessons are posted to eCollege. He is nice, but some of the classes felt pointless. Doesn't give a clear understanding of what you'll be studying as a Journalism Major. His lessons are very easy and simple. The News quizzes are also easy if you stay informed and he gives bonuses sometimes.

Chimbel is great and the class is pretty fun. There is a midterm, final, and 2 projects. Both the projects are pretty easy and he is very helpful if you ask him questions. Newsquizzes every week so you have to go to class b/c it is worth a good chunk of your grade. I really loved this class. Take it!

Intro to Journalism class was great. There are exams that need to be studied for and current events quizzes keep you on your toes. Chimbel is a great professor and wants you to succeed. One of the younger professors at TCU, but very knowledgeable. Becomes a great friend/ally. Highly recommend.

He's a hottie... Takes attendance every class and gives a news quiz every week. No tests, just a big paper and final project. I think he's a pretty good teacher. And you don't really have to pay attention in class. Easy A if you do extra credit

Good professor, but as others have said, not an easy grader. Means well and is smart, but it won't be a blowoff class. Could stand to teach how to shoot/edit video by example--he kind of explains then pushes you out the door.

Great instructor, funny and very helpful. At first it seems he is being very critical of your writing but it helps you get better. Everyone did well in the class. Take him!

Media Writing & Editing II. He's a good teacher. He graduated from TCU and works for channel 8. Workload isn't too hard and class never lasts for the full time. He's helpful with assignments.
