Great guy, simple class. Tests are take home. Just copy down everything he says in class, and regurgitate it on the take home exam. Easy A if you take notes. Not a lot of reading b/c he tells you everything you need to know.

Lots of detailed notes, but if you copy his notes down you will do well in the class. Very great at explaining the readings so you really don't have to do any reading on your own

He's a great guy who cares about his students. His class can be dull at times and yes like everyone else said you have to take gooood notes! He gives 3 exams that are taken straight out of the notes and a final. He's pretty hillarious and an fascinating guy a little easier on girls, but w/e. I ended up getting an A- in his class. Definitely take it

AMAZING! I am majoring because of him. If you go to class and take notes you will do fine, exams are take home and word for word from the notes. He can be really hillarious if you listen to him too. Class can be dry and long at times but all around great class.

Very friendly man. Take great notes copy them stright onto the take home exams and you should do fine. Extreamly knowledgable he knows his things and you can tell hes one of those teachers that is really passionate about his field. I liked him as person and actually took a lot out of his class. I dont recommend missing courses, notes are important!

If there is a prof on campus who will leave you wanting to be a philospher, it's this guy. His understsnding of the material is unbelievable. His notes may be messy, but his ideas are incredible.

He is a very friendly man. It isn't a difficult class if you take really great notes and use them on his take home exams. He is a generous grader. Final exam is the only difficult since its in class. just memorize notes, not so bad class I didnt work much for an A-

Very friendly prof., always willing to talk and help out when he can. Handwriting is messy, though, so don't be afraid to ask him to repeat himself. You should do fine as long as you take enough notes and repeat wdislikever was discussed in class. All exams other than final are take-home. Easy A if you know what you're doing.

Seriously, just make him read his notes after he's written on the board (terrible handwriting), attempt to answer questions once in a while, maybe read the material (a sentence or two) while he's taking role, then copy all of your notes on the take home and you're completely golden with a friendly big A
