Subject: Worst prof/class you could ever take  (Dec 11 2006, 11:18PM)

 Mr. Costa is absolutely the worst professor I have ever had. He is never available. His homework is online, the system only grades a few assignments and he has to go and grade the rest but he doesnít make your homework grade awful. He expects you to never speak unless youíre called on. He will find students that heís not so fond of and will try everything he can to make your grade awful. It takes him weeks to get graded quizzes and tests back to you, it took him over a month to get one back. If you're lucky you will get it in 3 weeks but he'll leave most of them in his office. If you didnít take French in High School you shouldn't take his course because he doesnít teach you anything. He basically reads the book to you (which is mostly in English and doesn't bother to translate the French). He is never around, so if you go looking for help youíre basically screwed. His grading is unfair and unexplained. He will give you a lower grade if he doesnít like you, but give the person next to you with more mistakes a higher grade. He doesn't fix your mistakes so you know what you did wrong he just underlines it. If he doesnít really like you or thinks you donít pay attention in his class he will grade your tests and quizzes and then scratch out the higher original grade and put a lower grade on your paper. Most of the time he doesnít understand your questions and doesnít even attempt to answer your question. He thinks heís funny but this class drags on for what seems to be a life time. If you or your parents are paying for your tuition you donít want to take his course itís a waste of your money. He holds grudges, is always late, and is basically the worst teacher you could ever have.

Subject: Where do I begin  (Dec 23 2006, 03:09PM)
Student: Anonymous ()
Class:French 1 (A)

 First off, he was 10 minutes late to the first day of classes. He rarely shows up on time, sometimes up to 15 minutes late (now I don't know whether this is a good thing or not, but he would hold class sometimes up to 5 minutes longer, making me late to my other class which was in the CFC). VERY disorganized. Lost one of my tests and a verbal grade sheet of mine, he ended up getting my test back to me a week or so later than everyone else. DOES take attendance most of the time, because no one shows up to class. There is homework with quia, but it isn't bad. Tests aren't too bad. 2 quizzes... I didn't show up both days we had the quizzes and he let me take them during his office hours. There are 2 verbal tests with a partner that take about 5 minutes. The only reason I understood the class is because I took some french in HS. The class it self is not hard at all, he is just a frustrating prof. Very easy grader, classes are laid back, over all not a hard class.
