 Dr. Efird is a decent guy, however, his teaching is extremely dry. You watch boring videos (on a good day) and hand in 3 papers that are 20 pages each. But don't worry, he does play favorites for the class. Although he is lenient with deadlines (he extended 2/3) and he does curve, Efird's tests are nearly impossible. He truly expects you to remember every tiny fact from all of the chapters. Class is horribly boring, but you MUST attend because he subtracts 10 points for every missed class. Overall, if you read the book and are a GOOD writer, you should do fine. He turns a marketing class into an english one.

 Efird is a nice guy, but a crap-tastic professor. Get ready to sit through boring classes listening to this elderly man tell stories about how hes lived in every country in the world... (Seriously, the man spent the entire first day of class telling us all of the countries hes lived in.. Too bad all of that real world experience doesn't translate out to an interesting class...) Get this: his idea of a review sheet is a page on blackboard that tells you how important it is to read the entire book. Tests are based on materials from the book only, and not from class, so you might as well not go. But then again, even the people who do go to class bomb the test. (at least he curves, which will get you a good grade) All in all, you'll probably get an ok grade, but will learn absolutely nothing in the process. Do yourself a favor and at least go to class a few times; you get to see his super-sweet sweater vests... ha, seriously. Cheers!
