    Jim is definitely one of my favorite professors. There's no color or pictures, just black and white. I'm a very visual learner so I hate that. But his class is very interesting and he LOVES to teach it. He's very helpful outside of class. Would highly recommend. ...Continue reading

    Jim is passionate about FSHD and gives great lectures. Make sure you read the syllabus because if you ask a question that is on it, you will frustrate him. Take it online as long as you have a good enough memory to remember when to attend chat sessions. Easy A. ...Continue reading

    James Hunt is probably my favorite professor I have had at the UA. It was an easy class and Dr. Hunt is very easy to talk to. He has personal stories for everything which made the class much more interesting! Tests are straightforward and so are the papers. Attend class and do the writings and extra credit and you will be fine. ...Continue reading

    Jim is a great professor. he knows the material well and presents it in a learnable way. he uses lots of examples so it's easy to remember when test-time roles around. as long as you take notes and study an hour or two for the exams, you can earn an A. he is always at office hours and happy to help. ...Continue reading

    Dr Hunt is an amazing professor! There are group discussions in class for credit, otherwise class is not mandatory. Discussion posts are due online every week, but only 3 short papers and 3 tests in the class. Optional final since lowest test score gets dropped. Go to his office hours! ...Continue reading

    Absolute Great teacher. His class actually helped me to decided that family studies is what I wanted to major in... He's a really sweet and funny too :) His lectures are very easy to follow and he tells personal stories that relate to the course to help students remember certain things. I really wish Jim taught more FSHD courses!! ...Continue reading

    Hunt is an amazing professor. He makes topics easy to understand and easy to relate to. Tests aren't hard if you go to class. He's truly an inspiration and very passionate about the subject. If you pay attention in class and put effort into the few assignments you will be just fine. ...Continue reading

    I took this online over the winter and it was really easy. He is personable, knowledgable and keeps the students interested. He is a particularly unique teacher because he has vast knowledge for multiple subjects. Courses are easy, do not necesarily need to buy the books but they help, information is clear and the exams are not too difficult. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Hunt is an amazing professor, completely relatable. He really loves what he teaches and that reflects in class. There is group discussions throughout the semester which count as attendance points and the exams are really easy if you do the study guide! 4 tests including the final and one is dropped! 3 easy papers as well ...Continue reading

    I took the Honor's section and it is an easy Honors credit if you need one. Hunt is AWESOME and extremely helpful! I heard he's just as good in person for lecture. Take it if you want a pretty easy and interesting class :) I took this and then PSY150 in the Spring and they're VERY similar. He's kind of a ham but he's brilliant. He'll talk about something and then act it out. EX: Adolescent behavior he'll act like a 13 yr old girl and make the class crack up. Yough exams, lots of info, very interesting, you'll never be bored. Don't let him recognize you from the fake ID he took from you (He's also a bouncer). ...Continue reading

    Dr. Hunt is a great teacher, but his slides are boring. Weekly discussion and chats, 3 quizzes and 3 papers. He also allows extra credit. Easy class as long as you keep up with the material. Buy your book on amazon, it's way cheaper than buying it from the bookstore. He finished school early, scored big with the chicks, 158MPH on his MC, raced porsche, bounces, martial arts, football related career, 167 IQ, friend to all threat to nuns. He is a standup guy that would help you hid the body and tell your wife it was all his fault. Clint Eastwood has got nothing on him. Viva la Jim. ...Continue reading

    Fairly easy class if you aren't lazy to do the work. Show up, read the textbook, and do the study guides that he provides and you are going to pass.

    Go to class and do assignments, you will do well in the class. He teaches from the book and his inclass examples are entertaining. You won't fall asleep or be blindsided on test day. The inclass presentations follow the book and power points just like they should. If youu take Jim's class just let him know you want an A and then work to get it. He has a personal example for everything and it really helps you remember the material and concepts. You will get an A if you do the work and pay attention... if you're lost he is super helpful during office hours. I recommend the class! ...Continue reading

    I have a lot respect for Jim and how he carries himself and how fair he is to students. He is strict on most things but he is very much in love with what he does. Jim is helpful and tough on grading. He helps you understand the course work thoroughly and is always available to the students. In office hours he is beyond helpful and considerate. During lectures he has everyone participate and he is funny. He really knows what he is talking about and is an interesting professor to listen to (funny). Tests are not too hard as long as you study. I can't wait to take another class with Dr. Hunt. I really enjoyed this class. ...Continue reading

    Easy class. It was extremely easy. Besides the three papers you must do the three quizzes and attend weekly chats and completely weekly discussions. I pretty must only spent one day each week for this class. Keep up with the work and don't fall behind. Easy easy class! Seems tough at first but lets down his guard quick. Once you know his teaching style his class is a breeze. SO easy. I took 117 & 237 so far and will probably take more. I learned a lot and will retain it because his class sticks to the basics, teaching information well. He's a good guy who's worked hard to teach, enjoy. ...Continue reading

    He is a pretty cool teacher, the course is not bad either. Random discussion points throughout semester, so make sure you go to class. Tests are harder than they should be for this level of class, but if you study and ready the book you should do okay. The topics are really boring though. Hard to sit through class sometimes. ...Continue reading

    When I started class with Jim this semester, I did not think I was going to like him. I wish he could teach every FSHD course. I think what made it so interesting is that he accompanies his power points with personal experience and videos. He makes what you learn really interesting. Do the study guide for exams and you'll do great. I didn't even have to take the final! Loved him! ...Continue reading

    At first, I was very nervous to take this class. After taking this class and receiving an A I would recommend this class to anyone. She offers more extra credit than any other professor I have had here at U of A. If you show up, study the notes and book, you will 100% get an A. I really enjoyed taking this class with Dr. Romero. ...Continue reading

    Romero is nice, but a bad teacher. She doesn't go in depth and often doesn't finish her lectures. Her teaching style would be much better suited for a high school setting I think. The tests were easy and there's a lot of useless group work that makes you practice writing 5 paragraph essays. Her grading is inconsistent. I expect more from my profs. ...Continue reading

    She was a good teacher, clear and concise. Only 3 tests so if you fail the first one it will be hard to make your final class grade a B-A. Tests are tricky and you must study and know everything from notes and book readings! If you don't get a good grade in her class it's because you didn't study. As long as you go to class you'll be fine because the tests are exactly what's on the lecture notes. ...Continue reading
