He's a great professor! He is so passionate about the material that it makes you want to learn it better. Lectures were always interesting and overall, the course was pretty easy. The midterm and final were both very straightforward - he gives out a study guide with questions beforehand and all of the questions come straight off of that study guide. So as long as you have answers for all of them, you'll be set! Definitely take the class with Brubaker if you need Soc 1!
Professor Brubaker is a highly intelligent and excellent professor who gets very enthusiastic about his lectures. His enthusiasm allows him to better explain philosophers and to allow the students to grasp main ideas. Although his tests are a little difficult and require much reading, the class was worth it. Just study off the reading questions and the test will be easy.Especially for the final Exam make sure that you go to the Final review because although they dont directly tell you whats going to be on the final, whatever they mention is mostlikely to be in the final.However, I have to warn you- there's a lot of writing and reading. Overall, I enjoyed the class and highly recommend it.
