This class was the most boring thing ever. I dreaded going to it and he talked monotone while reading from PowerPoint the whole time. His tests are crazy hard no matter how much you study.

Pros: very knowledgable

funny

good at teaching
Cons: can be difficult to get in touch with
Dr. Connell is an excellent teacher. Even though the class has 350 people in it, he still manages to make his class interesting, and entertaining, no matter what the material is that he is covering.

Pros: He has his Ph.D so he is very knowledgeable.
Cons: Boring and easy to just skip class because he has no attendance policy.
As long as you study for the tests, you will be fine. Go to class every day and print out the outline to take notes from and just study the study guide.
