    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recomend this course because it helps you write papers in the future. While in college you generally have a lot of papers, this class helps you formatt it correctly, and helps better your skills as a writer.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a long argumentative paper, and how to cite MLA. I learned not to leave your paper to the last minute.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your papers as soon as you get the assignment, otherwise you will be scambleing to get it done and it won't be a decent paper.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class with this teacher because he is very opinionated and often grades on his opinion rather than how well the work had been done. He often comes off rude in class and makes a student seem incompetent if you ask the wrong questions.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the ins and outs of an argumentative essay. We spent the whole course working on a single essay and made about 6 revisions of it throughout the semester.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall for his scare tatics the first week. He is the type of professor that likes to weed out students often by calling them out in class and giving tough Op-Ed quizes. He requires us to read three opinion articles in the local newspaper every week day.
