Professor Campbell's lecturing style at times can put some straight to sleep.Her tries to make the material of interest to students. He lectures from from slides. He provides more in depth information than the slide alone would convey, so attend lecture and take note. If you can I'd suggest printing the slides before class in hand-out form and take notes directly on them, or just use your laptop and open up the slide and take note in the note section of the pp. document and save it. The assignments he gave weren't that bad, they were easy to follow with steps written out for you so if you got lost you could ask for help at that point, and he's very willing to help you understand what you're doing, but he'll ask you first if you know what you're doing to see if you've been coming to class, but he helps you. Nice guy to talk to if you're having trouble in the class. He takes attendance about 15 times out of the whole quarter, and he put the information into the computer himself. There was no required section, but the TA was available for office hours if you needed her. In short just do the readings, attend lecture and ask questions when you're lost. The final paper is easy step by step, and there was an in class final which was multiple choice open book and open note. Grade:B+
Sociology 116- Social Demography Although this class is at times extremely boring... it is very easy to get an A. Make sure to write the weekly essays very well and know what you are talking about. Almost all of the information you need you can find online, in the books or from lecture. The midterm and final are open book and open note. He also gives a practice midterm and final test. Get a group together and have everyone share the answers they found for the practice test. He reuses a majority of the questions so if you have them correct it is extremely easy to get a good grade.
