 This guy is great. Funny ass guy who shows up to class usually in suit pants and hawaiian shirt who doesnt want to be there. He has powerpoints every class and reads straight from them. You do not need to take notes. Go to class because he gives you points for going. He has discussion questions every class which is where you get your points. He has like 10 exams and knocks your lowest off. He gives you a study guide with all the terms you need to know in order as the exam is. Easy ass guy as long as you study the terms and the order of them, you're good. Take him!

 He's an overall good teacher. You should show up for every class, b/c you'll get attendance points. The tests he gives are a complete waste of time, and you're pretty much guaranteed to fail them, unless you STUDY STUDY STUDY.. He doesn't teach, all he does is "read" a powerpoint (which is shown on blackboard) and then you do discussion questions, and then the test, don't be surprised if you go over two chapters in a day, and then have the test next class. The project he assigns is complete BS, he has been telling my class for weeks we are going to start them and never did. And don't go on the field trips, because he'll give you extra credit just for going to the website and typing something up about the institution....

 OMG I can't believe people would give him a bad comment. The study guide is the test! I can't make it any more clear than that! You don't even have to come to class, although you get 1 point per day if you do go and it goes toward the exams. But who needs those points, when you have the whole test? EASYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! The questions are in the exact order of the study guide. If you want you can just remember the answers in order. I gotta A and didn't have to take the Final. Who could ask for more?

 Study Guides are the most helpful tool you will need for each test in each of his courses and all are in the order of the exams. Take him for Survey of Corrections if you want a guaranteed good grade. Do NOT take Ricketts, unless you want work overloaded and to barely pass the course with barely obtaining a C. Take him for Juvenile Justice and Terrorism as well. In the summer, he offers Comparative Criminal Justice, Jails, and Gangs. Take him and Dr. Bricker for as many Criminal Justice Electives as you can! They are the best professors in the CJ department! YOU CANNOT FAIL! If you want to worry about passing, take Jirard or Brit Patterson. They will keep you on your toes.

 Haha!! This guy makes me laugh!!! He wears hawaiian shirts and suit pants to class almost every day and sometimes complains about how he has better things to do! Great prof to take if you want a laugh. Easy too!! His exams are 100 questions and he gives you a study guide with 100 terms or phrases. That study guide is the Exam!!! Everything that is in order on the study guide is the same order on the Exam. You also get participation points during the week for discussion questions too. Great Prof! Recommend!

Class:Terrorism (B+)
 13 of 38 students found this review helpful.

 I was skeptical to take his Terrorism class in the fall semester because it was an 8 am... I mean who wants to go to class at 8 am. Tell you what, I've learned more about terrorist groups out there in the world today than I've ever dreamt of(it will help you in the long run). Not just the Taliban or Al Qaeda but there are many many more groups out there that you had never heard of. You have to give a 20 minute presentation, but come on, who really wants to do that, neither does he want to sit there and watch you present anything for 20 minutes, so basically I did a 10 minute one, talk for 2 minutes and show youtube video for 8 minutes. Funniest part was 1 time there were 6 people showed up for his class which usually 35 people show up on test days, he was like "WOW, was hot point happening last night, what's the deal here" haha, anyway, he gave all 6 of us 5 pts for showing up, 5 pts for watching a video and have to wrote 3 sentences about it and 1 pt for the review questions, so basically we all got 11 pts for going to class. GO TO CLASS, you will get at least 1 pt for the review questions, we were all lucky that day and got 11 pts, CAN'T BEAT THAT. Take terrorism, you will learn so much and watch so many exciting videos, if you like blood and guts like me!!

 Go to each class and you get an extra credit point each time you answer one question you sign up for from each chapter. To get the study guide, you must go to class. The answers are in order to find in the book. It's like a word find, that easy! The tests are in the exact order of the study guide. Each test takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Remember, Juvenile Justice and Terrorism study guides are not in order, but they are in order of each chapter. Easy, but more time consuming for the study guides. Easiest professor within the department!

 I can't believe that people are giving him negative comments!! Yes it is almost pointless to go to class because he hands out study guides and the tests never have any info that is not listed in the guide. He also puts the questions in the exact same order from the study guide. It is so easy. If you do not get an A in this class...I am sorry but you either skipped the tests or you are an idiot. You also get to pick if you want to take the final or not because he drops the lowest grade. He gives at least 50 extra credit points a semester..so seriously if you want an easy A and a funny professor who isn't very serious at all...take this class!!

 I had Dr. J for Survey of Corrections. Granted, he only really read from PowerPoints and sometimes the book, but why complain about a prof that makes it hard to not do well in his class? Yea, he took 'attendance' - for every class you showed up at you got an extra credit point. Also, we had to sign up for the questions at the end of the chapters in the book. If you came to the next class and answered your question, you got more extra credit points. He gave out study guides for all of the exams. All the study guide answers were in the same order as the answers to the questions on the exams. Bottom line - if you're looking for an easy A in a CRJ class, take him!

 C'mon! Why are people reviewing this guy negatively? Half of the tests are open book! He gives out study guides for all tests, open book or not. He drops your lowest grade, and the final is optional. He gives you plenty of extra credit opportunities. This class is so easy, but yet I learned alot at the same time. Anyone who gets a bad grade in this class is a dumb-ass!

 Dr. J isnt a bad guy at all... Yeah his class is boring sometimes, but I gotta admit I learned alot in his class. He teaches straight outta the book, read the chapters before the test and you'll ace it. He also gives a crapload of extra credit opportunities before each exam (stupid shit like word puzzles). So thats easy points, no papers, and my final was open book! On top of that, the last 2 exams of the year he read out answers/or questions straight from the exam just to give us an idea of what we needed to know. I wouldnt mind taking him, hes better than Lemmon or Patterson

 I took Dr. J's intro class and it was honestly the easiest class i ever took. He gives study guides for every test except the first one and his tests are 100 multiple choice questions. Each of the 100 terms on the study guide is either a part of a question or the answer to a question and they go in order on the exam. There are many extra credit opportunities and each study session with the SI are worth 5 points so there is no reason to get any lower than an A on each exam. Class is sometimes a little boring and he can be very condescending but as long as you show up, talk to him, and either answer or ask a few questions you'll get on his good side and are guaranteed an A. Also know your current events - if you mention one when he asks at the beginning of class it's worth more extra credit points, which may determine whether you get an A or B if you are on the borderline! I definately recommend taking him for any of the CJ classes that he teaches!

 I had dr. J 2 semesters ago and he sucked, I might as well have skipped every class and just read the book at home. He basically reads the book to you. Always seems to have something else on his plate other than trying to teach his students. We did take a trip to Franklin Co. Jail, that was pretty cool.... But my main problem with him was that he didn't teach, he just read from the book.

 Alright, his class is pretty much a cake walk, but come on! Anyone can put the bold print words from the book on an overhead and call it a class lecture. Try to engage your class a little bit...hell, I'll settle for him just trying to resemble someone who actually cares about teaching! If you want an easy grade, take him...if you want to actually learn, take anyone else or take it online...

 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Dr. J didn't do any work the entire semester, his idea of a hard day consists of reading the bold type in the book and showing movies. The study guide he gives you before each test prepares you really well because most of the questions on the study guides are answers on the exams. I give him props because he drops the lowest exam grade and allows some of the exams to be open book. But when I say he does nothing, I mean he does and knows absolutely nothing. Unfortunatly you're going to have to learn all the material on the test from the book because you won't get anything from his class that is worth a damn.

 For the love of God, get rid of this guy! He sucks! He never gets your name right, plus will call you a girls name if you are a guy and vice-versa. The study guides don't always make sense, and if you ask him about an item on them he demands to know the number, despite it not being numbered. So you have to count through 100 different things just to find the number of the one you want to ask him about. Even then, he doesn't always know the answer. I heard his grad asst makes them up for him, so its no wonder. His pinky thing is so gross, too. He can't pronounce key terms right, either. Tests are 100 questions multiple choice and there are a few opportunities for extra credit - take advantage of them because you'll need it in the end, after failing the horrible tests! And to boot, he was asking who was gonna take his Intro to CJ class this summer...duh! It's a prerequisite for taking his class. What a moron, doesn't even know stuff about the program he teaches in.

  This was such a waste of my time its not even funny. He does not hand out study guides I REPEAT HE DOES NOT HAND OUT STUDY GUIDES. he got to lazy and decided to stop doing that this semester. Class is a joke but he does take attendace, we skim through 3 chapters a week then take a taste THE CHAPTER are up to 80 pages long!!!!! Its imposible to gain anything out of this class. The tests are 100 multiple choice questions on some Obscure ass shit throught the 240 pages of reading we had to do. He does not care about you or how you do, wont figure out your name by the end of the semester. This class sucks He should not be a Prof, he should work in jail or something with the lack of knowledge he has on the subject at hand!

He was so boring and all I could pay attention to was his weird pinky finger. I hated the class so much I had to drop it. It was torture waking up for his 8 am class...I'd rather have someone rip off my fingernails then ever take him!! DON'T TAKE HIM!!! HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT!!!

 Ok, this guy does not teach at all. He assigns like a million pages of reading and only goes over the bold print from every chapter in class. He never says anything of any value at all. Yes, he does give plenty of extra credit especially for going to the SI sessions which is good b/c you might actually learn something there but you won't from him. If you are expecting a teacher that actually teaches you stuff try someone else. If you want to learn the whole book completely by your self than he is the professor for you.

 Well, I'm pretty sure that leaving this comment won't really be helpful to anyone...since it seems that Dr. J was "let go" (oh, how I will miss his crazy pinky finger). But he was a terrible teacher. I don't think he really cared about this job. He used the powerpoints that came with the books. You couldn't take notes because he went too fast. Then, before each test, he would give you a "study guide"...the study guide was the test. Everything you needed to know...in order. If you went through the guide and wrote things on it, you were guaranteed an A. Especially bc you got to use your book and the study guide for the test. This was the easiest class EVER...but I didn't learn a damn thing.

 This class was the biggest waste of time. He lectured to the class. He reads off of powerpoints that I don't even think he made himself, and shows movies. Yea this is an easy course 'cause he gives you study guides that are basically the tests in less wording. The only thing is that he gives you attendance points and bonus points for answering book questions. If you want an easy course this is the class for you!

 Dr. J isn't what you'd call an interested professor. He at least makes it seem like he has more important things to do than coddle whiny college students through a 200 level survey course. While some may complain that his disinterest and lack of passion for the course makes him a bad professor because he teaches the book, I appreciate his honesty. Who really cares about corrections? I sure as hell am not going to get a degree to work in a damn prison. The point is, the class is required for the degree, and he doesn't give a bunch of bull sh!t assignments as busy work like a lot of gen ed profs. He cuts to the point, a trend I wish more profs would catch on to. If you really want to learn the material in this class, study it on your own and quit bitching about the lack of touchy-feely, passion in his lessons. If you can't handle studying a guide with the questions/answers provided in the order they are on the test, you don't have the capacity to work in law enforcement or hold any job requiring a bachelor's degree.

 Well, here's the deal with Jengeleski. He gives out very specific study guides before each exam, so study them thoroughly!! All of the questions are usually directly from the study guides. His lectures are intensely boring, however I recommend attending because he gives generous attendance/participation points. Otherwise, don't count on him being very available or taking any personal interest in you. Just learn the study guides, and you will be fine. Also, he typically waves an exam during the semester or the final, giving you room for forgiveness in the class. Overall, very boring but easy to do well in his classes.

 Ever hear the saying, "Teaches straight from the book"? well that is exactly what he does. He gives a study guide for each exam and the exam pretty much goes in order of the study guide, if you do the study guide you will do fine on the test. If it were not for him taking attendence every class i would only show up on test days when he handed out the next study guide. Every class i filled out the study guide while he rambled on out of the book. He is an alright guy though and probably the only prof who takes his classes to prisons for field trips. Take him if you like to teach yourself.

 Dr. Jengeleski basically uses the bold faced print out of the text as his lecture material. He gives you a study guide to study for the tests, and if you're smart (and trusting) you'll divide it into parts among a small group of people and have each one of you look up a section of it. (it can be time consuming if you want to do it by yourself) Save them for the final...

 Alright, this guy is very unpredictable, He is a bad teacher, but his classes sre not that hard, yes you do have to read, but you can sit in his class while he "teaching" and read the chapters, which is what i did and i never got below an A in his class. He will take attendence, but gives you up to 5 missed abstances before he'll even consider taking off points. After five you can make up any stupid excuse and he'll accept it. If you participate in class(and not even a lot) he'll love you. If you do get a hand out, he gives you the terms in the order in which they appear on the test. I never got less then an A in his class, he drops your lowest test grade, or if you are statified with your grade at the end you do not have to take a finial, and even though you have a test every 2 weeks it is nice because you have a lot of opportunity to bring your grade up.
