    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a requirement for me, and I didn't learn much from my professor at all. He cancelled class often for personal reasons. This was not a very professional environment in which to learn basic public speaking skills.

    Course highlights:

    From reading in the textbook, I learned various techniques for being an effective speaker and how to keep your audience's attention.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this class with Dr. Davis. He cancelled class numerous times during the semester. If you're looking for an easy A, this is the course for you! I believe that if I'm paying for my education, that I should GET an education, and I learned very little if anything from being in the classroom.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would totally recommend this class to anyone. The professor makes you work, but if you do what you are supposed to do and turn the work in on time then you should be fine.

    Course highlights:

    How to get rid of my nerves when I am talking in front of a group of people. Helped me with being able to prepare a speech on a topic of either my choice or the professor's choice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete each of the speeches, and turn in every exam. Participate in all the activities in class or you won't earn your points. The book isn't really used, so try to find the cheapest one you can get.
