Took Intro Sociology with Professor J. He's a nice and funny guy, and he tends to go on a lot of entertaining tangents, so lectures aren't too intensive(nice given the 8am time). He also encourages student participation in lectures for you vocal types. The writings are very simple; 5 one-page double-spaced essays - 2 reading summaries, 2 current events that relate to the readings, and 1 on how a sociological concept relates to your life. The midterm and final both consist of roughly 50-60 multiple choice questions and 2 one-page essays among 7 topics. Midterm is a cakewalk if you do the readings (which I neglected) and visit the testbank (see neglect), and the final only covers the other half of the readings, but is not in the testbank. Jepson gives thorough study guides for both tests the week before, so do the weekly readings and don't fall behind like dumbass me. With regards to TAs, Fox is highly knowledgeable and very helpful. Overall, easy GE course, just do the readings. I'm selling my course reader as well, no writing or marks, good condition, all that good stuff. Email me at email@example.com if you are interested.
