Review #1 / Course: SOCL 4471 / Instructor: PEDRIANA N
He's very fair, organized, but a little strict. Similar to a history or law class. Major case studies in the history of the US. I learned a good bit

He's a funny guy who has to teach a rather boring class! The tests are easy, but the quizzes are pretty tough (Even w/ the cheat sheet he allows). Class can be entertaining if you participate!

Read the textbook, some test questions come there that weren't discussed in class. Besides that the class isn't too difficult.

Dr. Pedirianna is a hilarious guy. His class was a lot of fun. He has really hard tests though. Make sure you do all the readings. I did all the readings and studied the notes & got a C in the class.

He doesn't know that Socl 2001 is an Intro. class, He expects the studentst to read all the chapters in the book, know all the lectures, and videos he shows in class, there is no way for you to know what's going to be on the test. Bad lectures!

Pedriana does not give clear expectations on tests and thinks that he is a law school professor. Says that you have to "earn" his A,; all this means is that he does not give them unless you create a legal masterpiece suitable for the Supreme Court.

Review #16 / Course: SOCL 2001 / Instructor: PEDRIANA N
Excellent class and prof. Gives you notes though does require you to read the chapters for a few questions on the exam, but all you really have to do is review the vocab and the marked off boxes. Very fair grading. VERY interesting class.

Review #18 / Course: SOCL 2001 / Instructor: PEDRIANA N
He is pretty controversial...which makes a pretty fun class. His tests are hard, even if you study...but he weighs the grades, so it really isn't that bad! It's an ok class and he is an ok teacher.

This is a really interesting class that makes you look at life differently. Pedriana is hilarious...though he tends to get excited about subjects and ramble on, but that just adds tu the class.

Pedriana was very amusing. Cared to hear what the students had to say and was very argumentative. Class and notes very light, but tests didn't reflect that very well. Overall, he's a nice guy.

This guy is pretty eccentric and fun to listen to, but his tests are really hard. If you are willing to study and read ALOT you will do fine, otherwise, take someone else.
