Professor Snyder is great. He is incredibly knowledgeable, clear, and concise. I am just about to finish this class for Summer Session A, so it moves very very fast, and there is a LOT to learn. That being said, he is one of the more organized and no-nonsense professors I've ever had. We didn't have actual zoom lectures so there was no face to face contact, but he is still very helpful and receptive to questions. As long as you do all of the readings and pay close attention (take notes!!) to his lecture slides, you will do well in the class and learn a lot. The class is extremely interesting, and he presents all information in a way that is easy to understand. He works very hard to make sure he is impartial and his sources unbiased. 10/10, probably my favorite professor yet!

So long as you do the readings and thoroughly complete the study guides for the midterm and final-you should be set. Make sure to do all the readings because he frequently gives pop-quizzes. He posts all his lecture slides and is pretty approachable. Do the work and you should be fine!

Professor Snyder was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this subject material which made it easy to stay engaged. He was also SOOOO clear with his slides, like everything on the slides the was useful- and of course he posts those on CCLE. This was the first 8 am that I went to every week without fail because going was always worth it. Snyder's tests were all short answer, where he would give you 6 possible questions for the study and then choose 3 randomly for the midterm, the final was the same format except he chose 6 questions from 12. The tests were not difficult if you studied- I literally studied one day before the tests and I got an A. I highly recommend this class as it has super interesting material, a great professor, and fair tests.

This is an exceptional course and you will learn a lot. He provides slides and his lectures are clear, concise, and engaging. Attendance is in your best interest if you want to pass the exams (midterm is worth 35% and the final is worth 45% of your grade). Both exams consist of short answer / essay questions. He provides a study guide, but as mentioned by others you need to complete it yourself. No textbooks but you will read research articles pertinent to the course that he assigns online. He is very helpful and approachable if you have questions.

This class is well planned and the slides are like gold all the answers you need are there. There are study guides for the exams which you MUST complete ALONE. The tests are hard because he looks for very specific terminology in your answers, these terms are used in the slides and you must remember them. I learned a lot from this class and enjoyed the lectures. the class is graded 10% pop quiz scores, 40% midterm, 50% final.

Dr. Snyder is very knowledgeable in this field. He takes great lengths to explain concepts so they are understandable and does everything he can to make this class an inclusive one. He performs in class quizzes with the iClicker and the exams are given ahead of time so you can prepare. if you pay attention and read the required documents, you will get a great education and a good grade.
