Review #1 / Course: SOCL 2001 / Instructor: SLACK T
Professor Slack is a little less dramatic version of Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. Sometimes he's really nice and cracks jokes, other times he gets irritated when people walk out of the classroom to use the restroom. His tests are somewhat tricky, and when asked about them he gets really defensive. If you have an 89.4 in this class, he WILL NOT help you out. Try taking someone else before you sign on with Slack.

Review #2 / Course: SOCL 2002 / Instructor: SLACK T
Very easy class, but only if you agree with Slack about everything. He is extremely liberal, and his arguments about policy are superficial and weak- I say try to get me to believe whatever you want, but have a good argument! Easy to get an A if you bite your tongue and just write what he wants to hear. As for the material itself, it is total BS. There is no place for opinion in science. Either stop trying to make policy, or stop calling your discipline a science. That sad thing is that it could actually be very respectable if sociologist would focus only on what's going on any why instead of trying to push their agendas on what needs to be done about it.

Review #4 / Course: SOCL 2001 / Instructor: SLACK T
Slack is GREAT! He’s a happy-go-luck guy, young, and absolutely full of energy, which is a big change from the usually boring teachers. He's always making sure everybody understands the concepts he's teaching, answers any questions you've got, and tries his best to get you to interact. It's obvious he's the kind of teacher that loves what he does and tries to get you to like the material too. His exams are easy as long as you know and understand the major concepts he teaches and that you read the book.

Only have 3 tests. Hard to make an "A". You have to read the book. There are easier teachers for this subject.

Review #7 / Course: SOCL 2002 / Instructor: SLACK T
Slack is a great teacher. He lets you participate and posts all powerpoints online so you can actually listen to the lecture. He grades fairly easy, and if you put forth effort and attend class you'll have an A or B.

Review #9 / Course: SOCL 2002 / Instructor: SLACK T
This class is not very interesting, but the material is easy. Two exams: midterm and final. Both are multiple choice and T/F. The Honors section has to do a research paper and their exams have short answers on them.

Slack is a fairly good teacher. His tests are pure memorization, but the class content is excruciatingly boring. Slack is easygoing but dont get distracted by how hot he is!

Review #15 / Course: SOCL 2001 / Instructor: SLACK T
Slack is an ultra-liberal and will tell you all about his political views that are not related to the class. He does post notes online and that is all you need to do well in the class. Going to class is pretty terrible though.

This class was very easy. Slack is extremely friendly and willing to help anyone if needed. Be prepared to write 5 short papers and one 5-6 page research paper. Overall, a very easy class.

Very nice guy but strict on grading. Take the normal intro. to SOCL from him, hear its alot easier, will count as the same credit & you don't have weekly essays, research project or essays on your tests. Def. a great teacher just really anal grader.

20 bonus points are given for attending class. I never read the text and I got an A. Just read the summaries in the back of the chapter. Exams aren't cumulative. EASY.
