Just do all the readings he assigns and if you dont have time atleast read the spark notes summaries. He gets very upset when students dont read and then he is forced to give quizzes to make sure we read. Just read the readings and show up to class ; you should do fine.

Just go to class even if it's boring. If he knows your there, atleast you're making the effort to come and will pass you. I dont understand those people who are complaining, you lazy people.

As a teacher he is incapable of giving satisfying feedback. When he asks a question he pretty much ignores the answer. However he is a fair marker. I barely attended class and passed with a 64.

He's kind of a hard marker, but if you show up in class and do all the assignments he asks you to do, you'll pass. The class is pretty boring though. You read texts talk about it in class and then he gives in class things to write or we have in-class discussions.

He is a hard marker, it is true, but if you show up in his class and read what he tells you to, you will be fine. He is a nice teacher, just very hard. You have to put effort in your work. That's all
