    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took the hyrbric course and in this class, it's a lot of online and self teaching. Good for independent students but not for those who want to learn and need extra help.

    Course highlights:

    Group discussions were always hard to get the ball rolling but you need a group effort.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review all the Information given online.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    English 1A informs students on formal writing, business style writing, and common errors in writing. Professor Sacks gives very in-depth lectures and provides the class with all the necessary references to fully understand the material. The course load is very manageable, and students are well prepared for quizzes. English 1A equips students with the writing skills they need to formally write in a college and career setting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is the instructor. Professor Sacks is very conscientious to know each individual. He is also very enthusiastic when lecturing and allows every student to participate in discussion. Sacks also provides mass amounts of insight about grammar, correct verb tense, point of view, and words often confused in writing. His lesson of logical fallacies is particularly interesting. Professor Sacks offers a compelling course on college level writing.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To prepare for a quiz, a student should take good notes and listen attentively because Professor Sacks goes over all the concepts covering the quiz. In addition, participation points are a major aspect of the final grade. The professor assigns in-class writings that are not graded, but count toward participation points. Lastly, Professor Sacks is a very strict editor, and he is very fastidious about format.
