He Grades the papers very difficult & you have an assignment due every single wk. Attendance is mandatory. He does a exam review before the exam so its pretty accommodating. You just have to actually study what he goes over. If you can take Lacefield take him instead. If not just be prepared for the work you will have in the class.

Avoid. If you don't get Lacefeild wait til the next semester. Ames grades subjectively, major papers and daily hw will hurt. Gives the grade he thinks you deserve. You can earn an A but he will give you a B. Be prepared for his insults. He's very rued, if he doesn't like you.

He teaches a very simple class that would usually be an simple A but he does not grade impartially. I asked him numorous times how i was doing in his class and he would tell me I was fine and then fails me with a 69.5!! I did all of my work and was in class every day at that! I DO NOT RECOMEND HIM TO ANYONE

Ames is a great teacher. Attendance is mandatory. 40% of your grade is based on in class projects. Mid term and final is a breeze since he gives you a review which is verbatim of what the exam is over. You only need the book to complete the reviews. Easy A if you show up to class.

Top notch prof.. His course isn't book based, it's writing based. He is genuinely interested in helping his students improve. Mostly simple homework and the mid year exam and final are basically handed to you. I'd recommend him to anyone.

the worse teacher ever, he talks about irrelevant things in class that has no relations to this subject. i feel like i could learn more from the streets than this guy. also he doesn't show up to half of the class and usually cancels it. why does UTA hire such a bad teacher? take it at TCC if you can.

Please do not take his class!!! He is so mean and rude. He is wasting time in class doing some other discussion, giving class off in Rangers all games. we are paying for every class, but he does not care about it. Please be careful taking his class....

Didn't notice any hot chicks getting great grades for class participation, but I'm an ugly guy and got an A...you can too! Scott goes pretty much by-the-book with some class participation exercises. Really they're freebies if you show up, give it a little thought, and do them. He tells the occasional corny joke to keep the class awake.

Integrated Marketing Communication - part 2 - also have class participation grade.. discuss about new products' AD. If he likes you then you get a great grade if are not a hot blond they you get a bad grade and forge what you have to say about the ads.

Integrated Marketing Communication -He teaches from the book straight up. Gota have a book and a highlighter. He tells you what's gonna be on the exam. And he is the only teacher you would want to take for IMC if you want to make a great grade. **Warning**Do not take any Ricdifficult Daily's class period!

Scott teaches straight out of the book. His exams come straight out of the book. If you read the book, go to class, and scan the book again before the exam you should be able to score an A.
