Professor Reviews in His 1302


  • Class rating 5/5
    Amazing professor, but you have to do your part as well. You could show up and do the work, and be fine, but if you get the chance to talk to him, do it. He has an open door policy, free drinks and candies in his office, and that's not even the best part. Talking gives a chance for you to tell him how you work, and he can then help you do well. :) ...Continue reading

    This will be my 2nd review since I just took him for another semester. I still highly recommend him. I used to hate history, and now I find that I'm watching historical movies/documentaries on Netflix. I made an A for both sections. If you do the work, you CAN make an A. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    She is a nice lady but is super scattered brained. Shes a hard grader and even though it was a hybrid class, she found ways to confuse me. She never has assignments up when they are supposed to be and due dates are never clear. During class you never do any work It's basically an attendance grade and she talks about herself the whole time. ...Continue reading

    BEST history teacher. She is a very helpful person and kind don't be afraid to go to her for help. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    First of all let me just say, I wish she could teach every class I have to take. Ok so she is super passionate about he topic, in my case it was history 1302, sometimes she does get a bit too exited and talk about one thing for too long but she sends you notes to keep you up to date. When I was in her class we had 4 exams total, extra credit, no HW ...Continue reading

    I loved being in Dr. Baker's class, she is truly an amazing educator if you have the chance to take any of her courses I suggest that you do. Her lectures are amazing and she gives very accurate study guides and tons of extra credit opportunities. I didn't get an A, but that was on my part since I didn't study hard enough for one of the exams. The book is SUPER helpful to scan through and highlight, it has all the study guide answers in a way that is asked in exams. ...Continue reading

    I don't understand why anyone will give her bad ratings. Take her! She has the entire lesson plan laid out perfectly. I took her online class and it was A LOT of work, but it's super easy stuff! She's helpful and responds to e-mails fast. I would defiantly take her for another class! Love her! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Easy! She is a good professor that seems to care about students passing the class, of course if you submit work on time. The only mistake I did is put off the first assignment where I made a low grade an affected my grade a bit. Overall take her, easy grade. IF you do the work and submit on time. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    SHE IS AMAZING! you do have to go to class because it is apart of your grade. for every absence she takes off 10 points. so you forsure want to go to class. her lectures aren't really boring, and you don't need the book if you good notes. she also tells you what terms are on the test. and the quizzes are easy (matching) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This is the second time I've taken her and I would do it again. 350 characters is not enough to say how much I enjoyed her class. Don't go for another easy professor that doesn't give a crap. Cook helps prepare you for the future job market by improving your skills and she even offers top 6 students chance to exempt her final. Best professor ever. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    The very first day we found out she doesn't take attendance then we found out she doesn't have exams just weekly short essays and you have all week to complete them so that's easy. She gets very into her lectures and really gets you to care about the content. The tests are made in class by the class. She's very nice and cool. (And super cute) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    She's wonderful. The best part of taking her is that there are 14 weekly essays and she drops the lowest 6!! She's awesome and gives extra credit as well. Take her if you want an easy A. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    She was a cool person in class, (made a few unnecessary comments) but she does in fact grade harshly. I made a C on my first essay that I tried extremely hard on and prepared for and made an A on the next which I stayed up until 2 a.m. trying to finish. Very unclear with directions and what she expects. Unfortunately, I would not take again... I really liked her as a person. But she was inconsistent and confusing. Her classes were somewhat interesting because she has a good sense of humor and is really nice. But, her assignments were not clear, and she would be laid back in class and then her grading would be totally opposite. Grades hard. ...Continue reading

    Taking his online 1302 class was a mistake, he lists conflicting due dates for all his assignments, little to no help and his course does nothing to teach you history. It's not that his course is hard, it's the fact that you have 3 different due dates so your forced to guess what is due when plus getting him to respond is like pulling teeth. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    I don't know where to begin. Half the time I cant understand her. She's incredibly biased about the students' opinions, especially if she doesn't agree. She's very condescending. She won't listen to what a student has to say. She's extremely unprofessional and rude. She loves purple, so you'll probably hate it after the semester. And I'm being nice ...Continue reading

    Professor Phelps is the best professor I have had for a history class, maybe even the best professor I have ever had in college. Highly recommend is class. Show up and you will pass with flying colors (: As long as you go and take notes, it is easy. He works with you and gives LOTS of extra credit!!!! Take him!!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This Professor is THE BEST! There are quizzes over every chapter, but if you read it you have a guarenteed 100, the questions on the test come directly from the qizzes, so come test time all you have to do is look over the quizzes a little. He's super funny and knows absolutely everything! Ask him anything about history and he will know it! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Ok first of all Kerr is a great guy but only if you are willing to be a great student. This is not an easy class for most but it can be. He hates giving tests, quizzes are an exception but read and no worries. He could not be any more specific with what he wants on assignments such as papers and group presentations. He's a really cool guy just work ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Foster was a great professor, but you do have to work for your grade. He is very sarcastic, which I appreciated. There were five essays, which were killer, quizzes that correspond with the readings, a midterm, and a final. Don't be intimidated because if you work hard and turn in all assignments it will pay off. His class is not an easy A and to get one you will have to work for it but you will not fail unless you do absolutely nothing. ...Continue reading

    She's really sweet. You have to do a lot of writing, but she will help you the whole way. She will proofread your paper so you know exactly what she wants. Just show up and do the work and there will be no problems! There is a lot of writing, but she encourages her students to come to her office hours. She gives great feedback. She always has a smile on her face. TAKE HER ! The only downfall is , she doesn't allow students to be on their phone. Other than that, everything is good ...Continue reading

    Great Professor. Does not care about attendance however, he does make you sign in just to keep record and if you go and ask for extra credit, he will look at attendance. His exams are 3 short answers and an essay. He gives you the essay a class before the exam and allows for you to take an outline. They are easy if you read the book. ...Continue reading
