Don't Miss a Class Knowledge Gainz Midterm is a Breeze

Listed as a course to give students the fundamentals of argumentative writing. Excellent class for those who will write lots of assignments in school, as well as for those who won't. Course pack is cheap, buy it. Review basic grammar. Go to the discussion groups. Pick prof. Taylor for the best experience overall. Other sections were hell, apparently.

I WOULD recommend this course to others.

Snooze Fest

This course is basically a review of high school English but with a few more components. If you are already good at English and writing essays, this will be a walk in the park. Nonetheless, this will also serve as a useful course as it teaches essential skills for writing essays, which you will continue to do if you take upper year classes that involve writing essays.

I WOULD recommend this course to others.

Don't Miss a Class Knowledge Gainz Book Unopened

Extremely useful class. I've used the knowledge I gained in this class to write every single paper I've ever done in university. Lectures are straight forward and clear, but the tutorials are pretty useless. Marking is fair to a little tough, he expects a lot out of you. Gildea tries to make the class interesting by cracking jokes here and there but it's still pretty dry.

I WOULD recommend this course to others.
