His class is structured blackboard, which is actually great. you need the book. going to class is pointless unless its before a quiz or exam.he accent is thick and he gives facts for very little extra credit. you gotta read a lot . but its not a bad class

Great teacher, just come to class to get the daily facts for the exam. And use the Blackboard exam to study for the exam. Pretty simple.

simple class to pass if you read. His exams are based off the tests, so if you study the those you will pass the exams.

Dr. Livingston is definitely a difficult prof., but he is a great prof.. If you meet with him during his office hours, he truly tries to help out. His accent may be difficult to understand, but it gets better once you go to more courses. Plus, he's a fine older man, so it's simple to pay attention

He's simple enough. Read the book and you'll get an A.

These ratings are very inaccurate. This class is simple, go to class sign your name on the roster & get the bonus facts. DONT BUY THE BOOK. He puts up the power points that accompany his courses online as well as chapter outline. He is very straight & to the point. But if you study you'll do fine. I checked my blogs during class & got an A.

HIS CLASS IS VERY dull! YOU DON'T NEED TO PUT IN TOO MUCH EFFORT TO DO WELL IN THIS CLASS! IF YOU DO THE BLACKBOARD tests AND KEEP TRACK OF THE QUESTIONS THEN YOU WILL DO WELL ON THE examS! THE STRESS CHAPTERS ARE dull AND DUMB! OVERALL THE SUBJECT IS fascinating BUT HE IS dull BUT PROVIDES RESOURCES TO HELP YOU SUCCEED (OUTLINES/PPTS)

It's not necessary to go to this class unless you want the fun facts for extra credit on the exam. Everything is on Blackboard and in the book. I foundi it easier to read the book than look at the powerpoints for the tests/exams. He has a very thick accent and is very difficult to understand. I guess he's an ok teacher.

Class wasnt difficult at all. If you read the book and read the powerpoints on blackboard you should be able to pass the exams. Blackboard tests are simple/open book and you can take them multiple times for a 100. I was able to get an A but i also put forth effort. Only downside is he is friendlya dull and has an accent

He's a pretty great prof., just show up to class regularly, review the PowerPoints and skim the book. The Blackboard tests are simple esp since they show u what answers u for wrong. Overall an simple A.

This class is not as difficult and difficult as everyone makes it seem. Most people end up with C's or B's in this class because they do not attend class regularly, don't read the book,or try to cram 5 chapters the night before an exam. I read the book reguarly and went over his powerpoints and got an A in the course. The exams aren't difficult if you READ!

dull as ever, stands in the front of the lecture hall and if you sit in the back its difficult to hear him and read his very dry power points. if your talking in class he will call you out without a doubt. do the online tests, stress exercises, and the paper and you'll pass attendance only matters for the extra credit facts. exams are long/difficult

If you read the book you can pass the class. Going to class will definitely help too because he does say a few things that aren't in the book and he does keep attendance and he gives extra credit facts in class too. Just read the book & you should pass though.
