    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's not the course I wouldn't recommend, but the TA. He's very loud, like he's shouting at you, and he has the worst handwriting and lesson plans ever.

    Course highlights:

    I liked how easy of a grader he was and I liked the papers we had to write.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I know you probably have to take it, so read the book, put a little effort into your paper, and don't choose this teacher.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved taking this class. I never really enjoyed English classes but I found this class to be interesting. I liked that we were able to choose the topics of the papers we wrote. My professor was very friendly and always willing to answer questions.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely gained better writing skills in this course. I learned how to write in many writing styles that I have never written from. I also learned how to better work in a group for workshopping papers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend to actually read the books assigned. I don't think I would have been able to do as well if I didn't read. Plus the books for this class were interesting and I enjoyed reading them.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Unfortunately, I was unable to specifically identify the professor for the English course I had taken in the fall of 2011. However, this university has changed the English program in that, when I was taking courses that year, the English class was still broken up into 4 different categories. It was something like EN111 Composition, where you would get the basic intro. EN 211D Technical and Report Writing, yes, specifically D, would prepare you for the technical mindset and so on and so forth. Now they have combined all of the different English classes into just a summary class basically, I have not taken it but I've heard that's how it has changed. That being said, I would recommend, depending on how the College or University that you're planning on attending, to look into if they offer a Technical Writing and Report Course. Its sounds like an off the wall random class, however, the points that are made within that style of writing and how it was presented by my professor, I believe her name was Ms. Aho, is something that I carry with me to this day. It goes in depth into the way you need to present information, how it should be referenced and the proper way to do both. It doesn't sound like a big deal but it can honestly even help you to cover yourself from plagiarism, which I know most Universities kick you out of school for. Plus if you enjoy writing and are looking to further you knowledge base, this would be the perfect sort of a class for you.

    Course highlights:

    I believe that I covered a little too much within the first paragraph....whoops... nonetheless, its a great way to know the ins and outs of being thorough with your writing, and who knows maybe the career path you choose down the road with have this as a requirement and at that point you may have already taken it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the readings, stay up on knowing when quizzes are and papers are due, I happened to let myself slip up one time and have to write about 5 papers that were due at the end of a week... And with Technical Writing it does not go straightforward.
