The best professors are those who have a genuine care for the students. You can be a brilliant Dr in your field and be the most terrible professor, this man is one of those! He has no love or care in the world for actual teaching, and he is careless with his reports and records. DO NOT TAKE HIM! In my opinion, one of the WORST prof. at FIU or any univeristy.

Not a very good professor, he doesn't really teach in class. You don't have to go to class at all, you'll be fine if you study at home.
