BLAW 2361 - LEGAL ENVIRON
His tests are 25 questions, multiple choice and true/false and they are extremely tricky. He writes his own tests so its hard to study for them because they're what HE wants to test you over rather than what the book would test you over.
Pros: Open note tests.
Cons: Tests are extremely hard and tricky.

Pros: Lectures are interesting. Open book and note tests
Cons: Tests can be hard. He claims they aren't meant to be tricky, yet they are. His wife even complained about some questions. The answer choices he puts vary slightly and makes it hard to figure out what's correct.

Pros: I hope you find this helpful, however it just depends on the student. If you can stay on top of the reading and know that the pressure will be on by the 3rd test then take him otherwise you will fall into bad habits of not attending and not reading. overall great lectures knows how to make sense of terms and laws

Book is important, attend class quizzes ARE inconsistent (meaning you never know unless you were there) and read a little before hand

Pros: The textbook he uses is VERY helpful and VERY easy to read and understand. Bible is a reasonable guy and incorporates jokes into his lecture. Tests are open book and open note.
Cons: Bible is VERY monotone and easy to tone out. Have to force yourself to pay attention. Success relies heavily on text readings. Tests, though they're meant to be straightforward, are often confusing.
Overall, I'd recommend him. As long as you do the reading and go to class so you don't miss the random extra credit quizzes, you'll do fine.

Pros: No attendance

Extra credit

Interesting

Open book tests
Cons: Sometimes hard to follow what he's saying

Challenging course/hard tests
You really learn a lot from him if you pay attention. It's an interesting class with interesting material and if you like a challenge, I suggest him. The tests are all open book and open note, but that doesn't mean its easy.

Pros: Funny guy and interesting to listen to. Explains things so that you can understand and makes them relatable.
Cons: Test are tricky.
Go to class and take notes. ALL test are open notes and open book but still kind of tricky. Go to class because he gives extra credit quizzes and he uses some of the cases he uses in class on the test.

Pros: Easy class, don't really NEED to attend if you have a friend that goes, but you'll miss out on the quizzes (EC).
Cons: Very monotone and hard to pay attention to his voice, but he is extremely interesting and his stories serve as prime examples of the material he is teaching.
Definitely a good choice for BLAW2361.

Pros: Open book tests
Cons: Don't let the open book tests fool you! you still have to know the concepts.
He doesn't ask you to know definitions on the tests. The tests are short case law type questions so make sure to read the chapters. Go to class if you want extra credit points(quiz points).

Pros: Tests are straightforward. If you study and apply yourself, you’ll make an A. I have taken two of his courses and made A’s on every test - keep in mind that I am a very average student.
Cons: Kind of a dick of you ask a question he was already answered.
