I swear to god if i could go back in time i would just to drop out of this class. I wouldn't wish this class on my worst enemy, the guy is so lost and just stares blankly at the wall for minutes. Easiest class to cheat in, the whole class started talking and he didn't notice. I was able to walk to the other end of the class and talk with someone during a test and he didn't even notice. Still don't take him he'll confuse the shit out of you. Save your semester and do not take Kidd.

this guy needs to update his website, his instructions on how to add certain things on microsoft word are all from microsoft word 2007! he says we need to buy the textbook brand new, where we dont even use the marketing lab. oh and his website, very useless, someone buy his pkidd.com domain so he stops using it ASAP. basically take him if you can learn on your own

Really boring and monotone teacher. Thinks he knows everything and makes the creepiest comments and jokes. Makes you buy the textbook and don't use it once. Only plus is that all the material is sent out in PowerPoint. Stay away

Talks a lot but doesnt say anything useful. Goes off topic all the time and doesnt clarify anything. Lots of useless assignments and his tests are straight up memorization (im not learning anything!). He makes very weird comments that can be really uncomfortable and i felt like he liked when i suffered. Honestly, if youre in his class, just spend the class reading the textbook, you'll get way more out of it.

Honestly, I feel like I am not learning anything. He doesn't give relevant examples to explain the material and he skips through a lot of important things. He gives assignments every week which don't even help me learn. All they do is waste my time. His lectures will put you to sleep and you would want to skip his class but you wouldn't because participation counts in your final grade. Overall it is an easy class but like I said, you're not going to learn much.

So, he can't teach, you can barely hear him when he talks, he goes off track often. Halfway through the semester people flat out just stop showing up to his class except for presentations and exams. If you are the type that is willing to teach yourself then this guy is perfect for you. He just stopped teaching for the third section of the course (Intro to Business).
Only positive is that he posts all his notes online but even at that what he presents in class and posts online are different.

Don't take him. His classes we're the most boring ever and sometimes the exams had nothing to do to what we saw in class. He just goes over the powerpoints the whole class (which he puts up on moodle). Did not learn a thing.

He puts the class to sleep with his boring lectures. Tests aren't too long, just study from the powerpoint and you can do okay, but sometimes there are questions about material you've never heard of. He's nice but useless. Don't take him if you want to learn. Take him if you want a boring class to sleep through. Sit in the back.

Take him if you need an easy class! He is really boring, but his tests are so easy, and his final exam is all multiple choice which is great. He does take attendance every class, so you do have to show up, but you don't have to do a thing!

I had him for basics of marketing and it was by far one of the easiest classes I've ever taken. It is true that you won't learn much in his classes but it's an easy class to pass if you study (you can legit read the PowerPoint the night before the test) and, also, he really cares about the wellbeing of his students which is a plus because he'll give extensions if you come to class regularly. Take him if you want a stress-free class!!

This guy DOES not know how to teach. You most of the time come out of the class without learning anything new. For the test, you're better off reading the book and his powerpoints. Don't ever bother going to his test "review" cuz he'll give you a tutorial on how to read a book like da fuq. He's a nice guy but it's time for him to retire. At least it's easy to pass his class so that's that I guess...

(marketing) he's not a teacher. i've never learned so little. spends 90% of class time making analogies that don't have anything to do with business and aren't interesting. he's an insanely easy marker (i got above 90), but the class average is so high that it doesn't make a difference. he takes attendance, has dumb quizzes practically every class, and is extremely inappropriate. many offensive comments (about women + uses the word 'retard'). his class would be bearable if you could skip it.

A business class with P Kidd was a complete waste of time. Everything he says was relevant 10-20 years ago, and he isn't able to adapt. The 1 day we had a sub, we learned more than the rest of the semester. At least the tests were a joke....

Oh my... where to start?! His class is a joke, you can leave in the middle of it and he won't do anything about it. You have tobuy the 120$ book, learn everything by yourself since he goes very quickly through the PowerPoints during class. Classes were reaaaallyyyyy boring, but he's a great teacher! :) His tests are only of multiple choices btw. ;)

Teaches a hybrid class with combo on-line labs and in-class lecture. Makes sure you understand the material by giving you the opportunity to do labs, quizzes. Really teaches in a way that makes you ready for university classes. If you attend, listen and do the work you will really get what it is all about. The students who do well are those who demonstrate a sustained effort ENJOYED THE CLASS. Answers e-mails rapidly . Worked hard on the on-line labs that really made learning easy.

He is a teacher which doesnt teach. He stands infront of the class and teaches you about how to use google. If you are looking for a class to learn absolutley nothing then take him but expect bad marks. He is volgar with students and he gives assignments of 20 pages and more. He is a poor excuse for a teacher.
