Opinion: 1305 - Guys take Dr. Andersson if you want an easy A. His class has quizzes almost every class but as long as you read it's sooooo easy! Like literally, I put very minimal effort into this class and I didn't study for the tests until the night before and got high grades just from reviewing my notes and the vocab at the back of each chapter. This class is an easy A, but you do also learn if you bother to listen. There's no homework besides reading the chapters for the quizzes, and he'll tell you exactly when to have a chapter read by. He is also a very nice man, always willing to help you and he wants his students to succeed. He might not be the most interesting teacher, I don't know but I would highly recommend him to anyone. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1309 - Not too hard. He has weekly homework quizzes that are open note. He also holds review sessions before every test and he answers any questions you have. You can email him a question and he will solve the problem and send a picture of his work to you. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 2306 - Professor Hollingsworth is a great person.Baylor graduate and loves Baylor more than anyone else I know. Be ready to talk about Baylor sports for at least 10 minutes to start off class every day. Really cares about his students and want them to succeed. But with that being said, he has been teaching for less than a year and is not the best at relaying the information, but has much improved over the course. BUT, the class is so easy and the tests are not hard. Would definitely recommend taking him. Homework is worth 30% of your grade and if you make above a 70 on it, he just gives you a 100. Tests, 2 tests and a final, aren't hard as long as you do that homework. Always available for help whenever you need it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1309 - To put it simply... I've had terrible math teachers from the dawn of time and I am able to work around them, but not with this professor. She does not explain how she would like you to format your answers on tests and for that she counts off FOR EVERYTHING. I'm talking 30+ points just because you didn't put an f(x) where she wanted it. She is very nice, but is not very helpful even if you go into her office hours. Honestly every rating on here about her being late and biased is true. Just do yourself a favor and take a different professor. #seeyainsummerschool - Grade In Class:DROP

Opinion: CSI3371 - I took the advice of a post below this one; when he asked "What is coupling?", I responded "It's like GLUING two things together", but he told me "Hmm...no it's more like PUTTING two things together." - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 2D - Professor Force is literally the angel of the art department; I have never met a more helpful, genuinely kind person than her and she will always go above and beyond to help her students. She does emphasize craftsmanship so make sure your projects and neat and well-loved and her class will be a breeze. The workload is lighter than any of my other studio classes and she moves deadlines if the students all seem to need more time on a project. Overall, best professor at Baylor!! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1305 - I took Pieper because he had really good BU Books ratings but I ended up dreading his class. It was the most boring class I have been in. I went into it excited because I had friends who had taken Sociology with different professors and what they learned was very interesting and applicable to our lives. What we learn with Pieper is a bunch of theories and people's names and books. We learn about social problems that are "impossible to solve." WHY ARENT WE DISCUSSING SOLUTIONS?? I ended up with an A so I'm not just a salty student who failed his course, but I do not recommend Pieper. There are 3 essays, 2 opportunities for extra credit (total of 4 points added to final grade), 2 exams, 3 reading quizzes, and a final that isn't cumulative (basically a third exam). I didn't participate at all during class and a lot of the time I would space out but I got high A's on all of the tests, quizzes, and papers (which is a miracle. A lot of people did very very poorly in this class because the tests and quizzes are basically a guessing game). There are so many good and interesting sociology professors at Baylor who will teach you how to interact and communicate with people more effectively on a day to day basis. I wanted to learn why people act the way they do (what sociology is supposed to be) and I didn't get that out of Pieper. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: WC IV - Dr. Perry is very opinionated and if you don't agree with him on everything it's going to be a rough semester. He is very forceful and wants to be the smartest person in the room. He will state his opinions as facts, no matter how subjective they are, and will shove them down your throat. He's a terrific scholar, but he's a tough grader and I did not enjoy his class. - Grade In Class:B

10. Rating on Robert Miner in the Great Texts department

Opinion: Capstone - This class was by far the worst class I have ever taken in the Great Texts department. First off, the class is actually team taught by both Dr. Miner and Dr. Lynne Hinojosa, which was not communicated through bearweb or by advisor. While the two professors brought different scholarship backgrounds to the class, I found this to be unhelpful as both professors had conflicting expectations and preferences in regards to participation and the two essays. There is an optional rewrite at the end, but the way they had the rewrite set up was basically a "screw you" to the class at the end of a stressful finals season (the rewrite would be the average of both the amount of changes you made to the original essay and the quality of the new essay, they straight up told us not to do the rewrite if you weren't going to completely change everything about the original essay or they would give us a C+ for changes made). Especially if you made good but borderline grades on the two essays (B+ and a B for me) there was no way the rewrite would work to your advantage in boosting your grade, unless you started completely from scratch, which is ridiculous and not what a rewrite is supposed to be. As far as the daily quizzes, they quizzed on the most obscure, irrelevant details on 150+ pages of reading a night during the big novels and on really hard concepts during the philosophy sections. While I did not really mind Dr. H, Dr. Miner is a horrible professor who I genuinely felt like does not want you to succeed. He is snappy, on many occasions in the class he would chew me and a few of my friends out for our comments on the texts that he didn't agree with. Absolutely the worst class ever, if you can, honors contract another 4000 GTX class or wait for the spring. - Grade In Class:B
