    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an easy class, but that really was not a good thing. The class never started on time and our finals were rushed because the professor was a little unorganized. Not a bad class, but I would not recommend this class.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn the basics of public speaking, and I learned that you should always be on time

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get your hopes up for an easy course, because the teaching style is odd, but if you get it, then it should be no problem to pass

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this class if you are afraid to speak in front of a group of people. By the end of the class you will feel much more comfortable with public speaking.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to relax during a presentation. I used to get all stressed about public speaking but i learned how to speak with confidence.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go over your speeches over and over before you go up there and give your speech.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself was rather simple, but the teacher was pretty poor. She had a short temper, and graded harshly if she did not agree with your discussion topic or just didn't like you.

    Course highlights:

    She taught good methods of how to deal with the nerves of public speaking, and also had a lot of personal experience in the field. A great asset to have in a Speech teahcer

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to have a thick skin. She can be harsh, but she does know what she's doing and does care about her subject.
