Pretty easy, overall.
This professor is great to say the least, he kept us all in check, he's hilarious and his tests are simple if you study his study guides and listen in class. At the very beginning, I was very iffy about adding this guy's class to my cart because of his reviews of "Mandatory attendance or you lose points for every day", that didn't apply to me because I didn't mind but still, it made me feel as if he was strict. He wasn't, it was the best money ever spent and he was the best professor I've ever had.
I'll try to be as thorough as I can but honestly, it's simple. The highlights of this course were how he gives extra credit and the all but rare times he shows he cares about his students. What I learned was professors at my school care about their students. Through just this one professor, he showed me that I can get an A in every course If I just study hard. Every single test I got an A on and it only added to my confidence.

Advice for students:
My advice, DO NOT SKIP CLASS. One, why would you skip any class you paid for, that's wasting money and two, you will regret it! He gives extra credit at random as well, if you miss one or all, sorry! He won't give you another chance even if you ask. He only rewards people who showed up. He recognizes faces pretty well, almost inhumanely. I sat within a wave of people during his class, I went to his office hours a few weeks later to ask him a few questions and right off the bat, he recognized me, even told me almost exactly where I sat (we have assigned seats), but it was all because I show up everyday. Keep in mind this class has 200+ students and most professors just see a wave of young minds, not individuals. Part 2 is STUDY for the classes and don't think you can get by without studying for his tests. They're designed so you can't breeze your way through them unless you study and I'm not just saying that because I've seen it first hand with quite a few people I sat next to. If you don't study, you will not pass. You may not need the book for Tyrone Tillery's class either. The key is to study his study guides as they are identical to his tests. When you study them, memorize, memorize, memorize. Do flashcards to teach yourself. It may sound like a lot of work, but it isn't, I promise. It took me 6 hours a week studying for a class where you're supposed to study 3 hours for every credit hour the course has (So the optimal amount of study time for this class is 9). Work smarter not harder. I typically buy the books for classes, and they are useful but for this class I found out a month into the material that it wasn't extremely necessary. All it takes is finding the tricks to doing well. Follow this advice and you will make an A like I did.
