Subject: Easy and Learn A LOT!  (Jan 02 2008, 09:17PM)
Student: Anonymous (MIS/CS)
Class:Bus. Systems Analysis & Design (B+)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Class is comprised of 2 tests and a final group project that is done throughout the semester. The 2 tests are all multiple choice and taken from a pool of questions he already gives you on blackboard! He doesn't lock the computers during lectures and gives plenty of group time during class. GET A GOOD GROUP! I would def. take him again for another class. He actually told us he hated giving tests and would make it as easy as possible!

 Dr Whisenhand is a pretty good prof compared to most of the MIS prof's here. He is pretty easy and definitely knows his material. If you can take him do not hesitate to do so.

 He's a very knowledgeable prof. on this subject matter for intro to business comp sys. His tests are easy, his grading methods are straight forward, and if you can't at least get a B, well that's not his fault. I recommend this prof.

 Prof. Whisenhand's class is ALMOST as easy as it gets. The Final counts as one of the five tests. Since he drops the lowest test grade, you do not have to take the final. The only reason you would have to take the final is if you did bad on one of his tests (not likely if you do the homework). There is a quiz every week on blackboard. He posts practice quizzes on blackboard several days before the actual quiz. You can take the practice quiz as many times as you want (random questions). It is a good way to study, but you have to learn the questions, not just the answers. The tests are on Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and a Powerpoint presentation that you have to give to the class. If you do the homework, the tests are not hard. I recommend Prof. Whisenhand if you want a class in which you don't need to study an awful lot.

 Whisenand is a good prof and I definitely recommend taking him. Weekly quizzes take a little bit of preparation, but I just did the practice quizzes on blackboard and did fine. He drops your lowest quiz and exam so I didn't have to take the OPTIONAL final. Great class...

 Professor teaches from overheads and then posts example questions on the web that he uses for his exams, so you can get all the answers before the exam and just memorize.

 Affectionately known by his students as "The Whiz," Dr. Whisenand was an interesting professor. His class was almost completely taught through PowerPoint. There was some group work with ambiguous directions, so just attempting the project guarantees you a good grade. The class was boring, but the tests were easy. I enjoyed "The Whiz" and hope you will too!

 This teacher is really easy. Just hand in the homework and you will get a good grade. It doesn't matter if you did it correctly or not. There are 2 tests and you CAN get all the questions and answers for the tests by taking the quizzes on Blackboard.

 This class sucks, he makes it 10x harder then what it should be. My roommate took the class with a different professor... did not even unwrap the book. In our class it is assignment after assignment and you never know what is due when. Side note, his voice is so dull and boring anyone goes to sleep

 I can't believe I'm the first person to give this guy a negative comment. This guy is completly worthless and the class is a waste of my time. He teaches us About Microsoft Access, but he assumes we know alot of stuff that we don't. All he does is go through a powerpoint of about 70 slides none of which make any sense. While he's going over it he sits in a chair with his feet up on the desk. He'll only teach if someone asks a question, but no one knows enough about the class to even come close to coming up with a reasonable question. I don't know how he made it this far as a professor.

 This class is tolerable, mainly because you have a computer, so you can play solitaire or surf the web. Whisenand is ok, he often seems kind of dull and unfriendly though. And class is pretty much worthless, he thoroughly explains stuff that the class already knows if they've ever used Microsoft Office. I probably should've taken the class online.
