Awesome

I’ve been familiar with Prof. Spratt for years now and I was really happy when I had the chance to take his class. He offers help if you have any questions and he goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable about taking his classes. He also answers emails in a timely manner. I would have taken more classes with him if I wasn’t graduating!

Good

I took Professor Spratt online for ATC Fundamentals. He's a good guy and the class is very easy. There's a quiz given every week and usually a short assignment or discussion. I would recommend taking his class because the workload is low except for a THICC final, but relatively easy though.

Awesome

Professor Spratt is wonderful. The textbook is like a conversation, it's understandable, essential, and useful. His assignments were short and direct, yet entertaining. Also, this is not a work-heavy class. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in it.
