    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of my favorite courses I have taken, and I definitely recommend it. The professor does an immensely great job in explaining and teaching the class. He encourages class participation which is a plus, and he offers extra credit for students who want to present their research papers. Also one important thing to keep in mind is that he will drop anyone who shows up tardy or does not show up at all to class.

    Course highlights:

    I personally loved this course because I can truly say it improved my writing skills much more then they were before. Though out the semester we were taught how to write good persuasive essays, but then we were also required to write a ten page research paper. I know that leaning how to organize one's ideas and writing the research paper itself it a very useful ability to acquire.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course the student needs to maintain himself on top of the game because he could fall behind real quick. I got to witness several students who kept playing catch, and that did not work out to well for them. I would advice the student to see the professor in his flexible office hours, and that will definitely reflect higher scores on papers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend anyone taking his class to show up to class everyday and on time because he does not hold back on dropping anyone, doesn't matter who it is. He's great at helping students who need the help and he offers flexible office hours.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a ten page research paper page by page, I know this skill will come in handy when I start working on my graduate classes. I learned much more in depth about elipses and all those grammar punctuations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to stay on top of things because this class can get tough real fast if they fall behind. As long as the student does everything assigned she'll do good because even is she doesn't feel like a good writer, her skills will increase with practice.
