"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Lectures are long"

Skip him. Nice guy but he is totally out of touch with the times. Boring long lectures and exams are ridiculous.

"Tests are tough" "Lectures are long"

hes a good teacher and likes what he does. doesnt always explain things the best and kind of throws you to the wolves with his tests. no homework or extra credit so its based off three tests. id look for other teachers but dont be afraid to take him. tests are 12 short answers 12 scantron. final is cumulative so good luck.

ANTH 285 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He is really awesome, I loved his class and him! I think I got an A because I showed up to class (being there for the films is really important) and reading every assignment he gave us really thoroughly. flashcards for the tests are key! Do all your film and attribute sheets and your golden! Its an awesome class, I loved it, highly recommend.

ANTH 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

William is a cool guy. Classes can be boring sometimes, but take good notes and you'll do fine! The subject is pretty interesting. Again: TAKE NOTES! There are 3 tests and no extra credit. Each test has 45 t/f questions,and the rest are short answers and one half page essay worth 6 points.

Three exams. True/False, Fill in the blank, Short answer, and last two tests have an essay question. No homework. Take notes. Use book for definitions of key words. Strict with attendance. Pay attention or at least look as if you are listening. Very interesting stories and easy to learn from. A very great teacher to have. Recommend 5/5.

ANTHRO 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Breece is such a knowledgable and friendly man! As long as you take good notes and actually study for the test, you'll be fine. You won't need the book, it's in the library on reserve if anything. On the exam (3 that make up your entire grade): tricky true/false but if you can answer the free response questions, it'll help a lot.

anth 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a very interesting man, very informative and somewhat funny. He gives a textbook but does not use it in class, and the older editions are much cheaper and have the same info. His test are worded in a way that may be hard to understand. He only gives 3 test, no hw and no extra credit. so basically if you pass the test you pass the class

Amazing teacher!! He is so incredibly reasonable, he asks you to pay attention, come to class, and read the book: that is all. There is no homework, just 3 exams that are very easy! Such an easy A with a little effort and an interest in the class! Highly recommended!

this class was work to get an A in for sure. If you're taking an Anthro class just for GE requirements, you may want to choose another professor because he loads you up with information and holds you responsible for a lot more than other professors might. his tests are fairly challenging, and there's no extra credit. have to go to all classes.

Just remember to take notes from the videos and read the book. There aren't many opportunities for extra credit, but as long as you pay attention the tests aren't too hard.

ANTH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This guy was an awesome teacher--extremely interesting! It was a bit difficult to get an A because he has a mixture of mult choice, T/F, short answer & essay questions on the exams. If you study the notes & pay close attention in class, you should do fine. I felt he was a little scattered at times, so I recommend organizing your notes after class.

ANTHR100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is super helpful and very nice. But it is bit hard to get an A for me.. True/False questions were tricky.. You really need to pay attention to his lecture. I think I will get a B, but I truely enjoyed this class so there is no regret taking this class. Extremely interesting and I didn't even fall a sleep during the lecture. Highly recommended.

Take very good notes. Just like everybody have said already. He's willing to help if you ask him questions. The book is only needed if you want to know more information, so I wouldn't buy it. He's very wise but he's getting old. Poor guy. Anyway, don't slack off and don't miss a class. He's that easy folks.

Cutest man alive! He was such a great teacher too. Tests are fair, but there's only three and they make up your whole grade, so you NEED to study for an A or B. He keeps you interested and is very clear about things.

Very knowledgeable professor. don't be shy if you want to say something (he's becoming more and more deaf). Pay attention to what he says, take good notes (even from videos) and you'll do well. It's easier if you're already interested in the subject, but as long as you keep an open mind, this'll become interesting.
