Melder was hilarious, but there was no need to go to class. Just print out the outlines. Tests were sometimes on random material and hard to prepare for. Study and it won't be a problem

Not as great as he's cracked up to be. Acts cool to impress students. Dips during class and spits in the trash in front of everyone...its pretty gross. Says fuck every other word. Just not professional; not someone I want t learn from.

Review #5 / Course: SOCL 2505 / Instructor: MELDER M
Melder was almost too laid-back. Class always end early and he treats the class like it is blow-off but his tests are a big surprise. Often the question are confusing and awkwardly worded. He is a hoot to listen to though.

Review #7 / Course: SOCL 2505 / Instructor: MELDER M
This class should be called "Comical approach to Marriage and Family." Melder is hilarious. I only went to class to hear him speak. I never studied, never took notes. His tests are the easiest Ive taken in college, common sense = A for you.

Lots of fun. You don't have to go to class, but you want to just to see if the teacher is hung over & making jokes.

Review #10 / Course: SOCL 2505 / Instructor: MELDER M
Dr Melder is really cool and laid back. Almost too laid back though. I would've liked to have a little more content in the class. His tests aren't as easy as you'd think.

This class is great as an elective! All the notes are online and the tests are pretty straight forward if you look at the notes and go to class. Melder is a great teacher and really talks to you like you are a friend.

The material is pretty boring, but Melder makes it interesting. His class is fun but the tests are harder than you think because of the way he words things and the answer choices are so similar.

If you are reading this, take Mark Melder! By far the most laid back class at L.S.U. You will learn a lot of interesting views on deviation.

Most people like Melder because he is fun and crazy; however, if you are even a tiny bit conservative you will despise this liberal jackass who doesn't even express any small piece of a different point of view. ONLY INTERESTED IN HIS POINT OF VIEW!

Lecture notes are online, material is very easy. If you do go to class, Melder is a character. Lectures are lively - lots of discussion. Takes awhile to get test grades back.

Melder is awesome! Very funny and entertaining. Tests are straight foward and he usually curves them. Take advantage of bonus opps. Participate in class- he really likes that! EASY A!
