Mr. Campbell did not provide students with sufficient preparation, by asking questions that weren't found anywhere on the review sheets and study guides, on tests and the final exam. The review sheets were too general, and I was thinking on the spot while writing my final exam. Studying and reviewing for 20 hours did not help me at all on my exam. I was genuinely thinking on my feet for his two-and-a-half hour exam. The comparisons found in both tests were virtually pulled out of thin air!
I did not learn one thing through the entire semester.
Incredibly intelligent man. Great to talk to, especially about matters relating to Star Wars. Always supportive of his students. Open to unorthodox presentation and teaching methods.
A man of contradictions. He is approachable and amusing and his classes can be enjoyable, but they can also be dull, and he has his off-days. Overall - great guy, mediocre classes.
His classes tend to be boring & drag on & on. You'll be watching the clock a lot. He also tends to pick on certain students. Has interesting things to say & generates good class discussions. Meh. . .
Extremly nice teacher, he seems to know what he's talking about. He's very open to suggestions and new ideas.
