Comments:1305 - My favorite professor by far!! Baylor has a lot of great professors but none can compare to how great James is! One of my first classes at Baylor and he was amazing. The tests are multiple choice and there are a few pop quizzes but they are super easy and don't really affect your grade that much-they are more for attendance. In terms of homework its just reading which you can just skim through to get the main concepts because he teaches it really well in the class. He's lenient with attendance but honestly i never wanted to miss his class because it was always super fun. Super energetic and great person. Go to his office hours! Just go and get to know him even if you go just once and it will definitely be worth your time  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - This is a super fun class. He is a very nice, fun, and passionate professor. inn a subject like sociology I feel like you need to have an unbiased professor and he remains unbiased and gives us relevant and current examples of what we are learning. I highly suggest taking him if you can. His classes aren't boring and his tests are easy as long as you show up to class. He does take attendance everyday and it does count towards your final grade. His final is just a regular test so it is pretty easy. TAKE HIM  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - James is a great professor and his class is very, very easy. Even if you don't do the readings, you can usually figure out the quizzes and the exams (30 questions + an extra credit) are fine as long as you pay some attention in class. Also, he'll throw out an exam question entirely if a ridiculous amount of people in the class get it wrong. The hardest part was probably writing the two assigned papers, but even those had super detailed rubrics and, if you follow them, you'll get an A. Seriously, take Davidson if you want to make your life less stressful.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - James is the best!! Yes, he insists we call him James because he wants us to know that we are his equal. He is so entertaining and will not bore you. He is very passionate about sociology and is very very good at the topic. I would recommend him to anyone! Even if you weren't planning on taking sociology, take it just so you can have him as a professor!  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - James is the best! He is so passionate about Sociology and makes class fun. I honestly look forward to class every day. He gives pop quizzes about once a week, but four o the five questions can be answered from the previous day's class and the fifth one can often be guessed. He gives you a 3/5 on the quizzes just for being in class, which is nice. His tests are SOOOOO easy. I barely had to study for his tests and aced them. There is theoretically reading every night, and, while I did it (mostly just because I can't bare the idea of not doing something that is assigned), I don't think you would need to actually do the reading to get an A. James spends the first 10-20 minutes of every class asking students about their lives and then discussing current events, which is nice because it keeps you informed. I feel like because James makes the class so easy, it takes the pressure off of the students and you can just sit in class and absorb the information he is giving you, so I feel like I learned a lot about sociology. All in all, he is a great professor and I 100% recommend him!  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - James is the ultimate homie. He truly cares that you do well in his class and enjoy it. He references his students as "colleagues" and the workload is ideaaaal. Reading, pop quizzes (that you don't have to stress about), two papers that are not long, three 30 question exams that always have an extra credit question, and pop-thought papers that are a completion grade. He usually offers extra credit and if you have the chance to take this class, for the love of God take it. You won't regret.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - Mr. Davidson is THE BEST!!!! If you want a professor that brings energy to every class and wants to make sociology fun for you, then you must take him! There is no homework minus a few readings and only 3 tests, which are SUPER easy if you read the powerpoint. His goal is to make you smile everyday in class and he swears all the time... he is pretty much like an older college student who is super cool. TAKE HIM!!!!!!! Best professor ever and you will enjoy his class so much!!! In addition, he has some amazing stories of meeting famous people that will amaze you so just take him!! BEST PROFESSOR I'VE HAD  - Grade In Class:A
