Wilkinson is great and there's no reason to take this class with anyone other person. He's completely hilarious, the material is easy, the book is easy to read, and going to the night class is seriously worth it.

Class wasn't too bad, Matt is a good prof but tends to let class discussing drift off sometimes. Go to class, read and you'll get an A; I missed class too much. Let us out early every night.

Unorganized, Biased, Inconsiderate, and completely impossible to reach or get a response. Stay away from Wilkinson.

Matt Wilkinson is a great teacher. He has fun projects that are worked on outside of class. The notes are online and he goes into detail of them in class. If you put forth a little bit of effort you will be fine in his class.

He is a really cool. You MUST go to class. His tests were harder for me, but he's willing to help you if he recognizes you from actually going to class. (I got the study guide version of the book, instead of the actual book, and it helped ALOT)

Wilkinson is cool and class is fun. He gives bonus opportunities and actually added one percentage point to my grade at the end. He doesn't tell you when the tests are until a week and a half before and they are harder than some other sociology tests

Read the book, study the website. Easy if you do this, almost guaranteed an A. Matt is awesome, funny, cool, and young. It's like he understands us as college students. Everything is discussed in class by the whole class and that is we learn it.

He was a horrible teacher. Everybody says he's great, but he tries so hard to be cool that he doesn't even really take time for the material. The tests are difficult, and he takes so long teaching a section that you only get 2 tests instead of 4.

Wilkinson is the best... his tests are harder in this class than they were in 2001, but he still makes everything interesting and promotes a lot of discussion instead of just sitting there lecturing.

Descent teacher, runs through power point slides very quickly if he doesnt think they are "really important" or he needs time to get to other stuff, and for exams go to book website and there are practice exams with word for word ?'s on them

Very fun class, good teacher, but his bias shows through in his teaching. He loves to hear students talk, but sometimes if they say something that contradicts with what he says, he just blows them off. Textbook is VERY biased.

Very fun class, good teacher, he is fairly biased though and that shows through in his teaching. He loves to hear students talk, but sometimes if they bring up something that disagrees with what he says or what the book says, he just blows them off.
