As long as you expressed your ideas in your paper clearly, you'll be golden. Very interactive with the class, and a great guy in general. A lot of opportunities for extra credit, like you could pass this class on extra credit alone.

Good professor, and truly cares about his students. He is boring to sit there and listen to, but he breaks it up pretty well. I would take him again since he is a great guy.

I really wanted to like his class more because he seems like a genuinely good guy, but I never looked forward to class because of how boring it was. Fortunately, he let us out early most days. He was not specific enough when giving assignments, but none of them were particularly difficult. He just wants his students to put in the effort.

Great teacher with great lectures and he tells you exactly what is essential.

Mr. Post grades by total points, and getting an A is totally manageable! That is until he takes out 30 "easy" points (class participation and homework) 2 weeks before class ends and does not adjust the scale. You have almost weekly quizzes that are not super challenging, but they do make up a lot of your grade. Study for test 2, no one did well.

Very few assignments and most are group assignments or graded by students. Tests are incredibly easy. He rambles sometimes, but discussions can sometimes be interesting. The book will help you more than his lecture anyway, and the chapters are easy and short. Honestly, you'd have to make an effort not to make an A in this class.

This class really isn't hard if you take him. Go to class and somewhat pay attention! Participation bonus points added to your test, so answer questions at the beginning of lecture! You actually need to read the chapters for their quizzes, but not bad.

Mr. Post taught this class in a way that actually made me understand what I was learning. He gives you a chance to get 1-2 bonus points during every class. Definitely, read the book. Weekly quizzes over textbook readings, but average is taken from individual and group quiz.

Weekly quizzes over textbook readings. Attendance is taken every day. Two midterms and two essays, so a lot of importance lies in doing well in those. Extra credit is given every class period if you participate.

Mr. Post knows what he is teaching and HOW to teach it. I LOVED HIM! He gives weekly quizzes that are not hard if you just skim the chapter the night before. PARTICIPATE and you will get bonus points. He gives you a study guide before every test! A+ professor!

There are weekly quizzes on a few pages of reading. The reading is not time-consuming. Quizzes can be tricky but overall they are fair and come directly from the reading. Mr. Post is a phenomenal professor and this class was really fun.

The class is mandatory and really really boring if you don't like reading but you can play on your computer so it's not that bad. He lets you out early and there are quizzes once a week but the answers are easy to find if you look around!

Mr. Post is about as good a professor as you can get. He's clear about his expectations. The class is easy so long as you keep up with the reading and ask questions during lecture. His tests (2 tests and a final) and quizzes (weekly) are pretty easy as long as you have paid attention in class and done the reading.

I can see how Bob would be a good TA, but he should be barred from designing upper-division English courses. Honestly though, you need to be responsible and keep up with the material yourself, because he doesn't do anything to make sure people get it, short of having office hours. Also, he's weird in a quiet but disturbing way.

Bob is the greatest ever. He's super helpful and a very honest grader. He explains all the concepts clearly and is willing to go through it with you multiple times if you're not a quick learner. I would most definitely take another class with him. Good Stuff all around!

Hands down worst professor I've ever had. There was a total of four assignments through out this course. Two papers and two exams, some optional depending on your grade. He is VERY critical on essays, for example, he reported me for plagiarism because I forgot to quote the definition of an artist. Also, not helpful whatsoever and very rude.
