Opinion: JOU1303 - I took this in the summer along with another class. Big mistake, this class has an unrealistic amount of work. The exams were around 70-160 questions long and he only gave 50-60 minutes on them. The homework consisted of using the online book and answering 40-60 questions, oh and you have to get a 100% on them. Then he posted things to read and quizzes on each chapter on Canvas. The class is doable, but extremely and unnecessarily time consuming. My performance on the second class suffered because of the amount of work done in this class. I'd suggest to get another professor or take this class alone. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: bio 1306 - Harvill is probably one of the easiest gen bio professors you will take! His tests are super book based and his class is not terrible to sit through. During office hours he can come across as a bit standoffish but over all he is a nice guy. Only super annoying thing was that he made us all purchase a Tophat subscription and I think we may have used it twice within the span of the semester. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: gen chem 2 - LOVE Dr. Hodson! He truly cares for your success and wants you to learn. He is a sweet and funny guy. He sometimes shows videos of his adorable children and will let you out of class early occasionally. I got a C in gen chem 1 with Hassell and the difference was night and day with Hodson. He bumps up grades and drops a test basically. The SI is helpful as well! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3330 - So, she makes her powerpoints pretty much in step with the text book. She doesn't test on random facts too much, and sticks to whats on the powerpoints for test questions. She's SO SWEET too. Seriously, she is so worth getting to know and she will bend over backwards to help you if you aren't understanding something very well. Her lecture style is a little boring, but the class is worth taking. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ELC 3314 - Professor Grady is unlike any professor I've ever had. He hands a syllabus out on the first day that could fit on a notecard, but it at least looks organized. Then he promptly forgets about said syllabus, and just rambles on for the entire semester. The first month or so, we relearned basic circuits...which he did teach us some kind of helpful technics. Then it was just random information that was either so far over our heads (PHD or +30 years of experience needed), totally out of left field (he seems to really like solar panels), or entirely too basic (how to row reduce a matrix). I learned next to nothing, even though I generally try and eek every bit of knowledge out of classes. There was no homework collected, and the homework he gave us was one of the three options listed above. You might as well go take a test in some random class on exam days because you have about as good a chance of being prepared for a random test as you would Grady's. The good news is your grades don't really matter, as long as you are respectful of him and don't goof off in class you'll get an A. It's the most oblivious grading system I've ever experienced. Thank goodness the lab with this class is very involved and difficult because otherwise I would have flunked power electronics. You'll learn a couple of practical things in the lab portion of Grady's class, but other than that there's hardly any substance. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1304 - ABSOLUTELY TAKE DR. E IF YOU CAN! He is a great teacher who really knows his stuff and makes an effort to make it interesting and enjoyable for the class. The workload is super light with some outside reading and essays that are extremely easy. For the research paper, I suggest you pick something that you really care about or else it will make it difficult to find the inspiration to work on it with everything else going on. Overall, Dr. E is great and I thoroughly enjoyed his class and would recommend him! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: Multiple - Mr. Lewallen is going to be one of those professors that I attribute my success to. He is a great man as well as teacher and I can truly say he made my college experience better. If you have to opportunity to take him, do it! The workload is never too hard and he is always available if you need help or advice. I laughed more in his class than in any so far at Baylor. He has so many great stories and lots of advice so please take advantage of his generosity and get to know him. And yes, he's a little kooky but in a great way and you will benefit from sharing in his silliness sometimes. Overall, his classes are great fun and I would definitely recommend taking him! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: PSC 2302 - Dr. Nichols is the most straight forward professor I've had at Baylor. The course is designed for you to pass it and the workload is very manageable. Most of the time you can get away with studying the day before and still get an A on a quiz. The only parts of this course that require more studying are the midterm and the final. However, you can use a "cheat sheet" on the final so it not as bad even though it is cumulative. Dr. Nichols tries to make the course exciting as he knows most people are they just because its required. He also shortens the material you need to know. No need to worry about the insane amount of court cases that other professors require, Dr. Nichols only covers about 30 of the most important ones. He even uses a chart for them which can save you when you forget their names. I'd recommend Dr. Nichols to anyone that wants to get an A. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1302 - Dr. Rhidenour was not a very good teacher. She never teaches you. She expects you to teach yourself from the book. She was not helpful if you asked her how to make your speeches better. She gives quizzes that are ridiculous and they will lower your grade even if you only miss a few questions. I would NOT take her again. I learned nothing in this class and was very frustrated when I worked on my speeches because she has no grading rubric so you don't know what she looks for in your speech. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1304 - DO NOT TAKE MR. SMITH! He likes to lead his students to believe that he cares about them but does NOT treat them accordingly. Every time I walked out of his class I felt embarrassed and degraded. He asks questions to the class but is never satisfied with the answers given and makes that known. He is never clear when giving instructions for the various essay assignments. When you ask questions about the assignments he looks at you like you are stupid then proceeds to answer the question with so much fluff that by the end of his explanation you are even more confused. At the beginning of the class he makes it clear that all you have to do is follow his instructions to make an A. Which may be true but his instructions were always SO confusing that it was an impossible task. I walked out of his classroom multiple times on the verge of frustrated tears. I put everything I had into trying to follow his instructions but was never able to succeed. DO NOT TAKE. - Grade In Class:B+
