5*****
Pros: Hilarious lecture.

2 exams, over lecture material. Everything else relies on the lab grade.

You get recognized in attendance for being in class, yet in no way will that be used for final grade, most likely.
Cons: No computers in class!

Prepare for several true/false!

Only have 2 tests... if you don't do well in lab this can hurt you.

HAVE to go to class or else you won't know specifics for the test.

Does NOT use ElC
Some people might take offense to his lectures, but they are modern, true to life, and very informative. I had Hudson for lab and he was AWESOME! Every assignment was worthy of your time and helped to understand the class. The first test was easier than the last for most people, but I found the last test to be pretty easy!

This is only for the lecture: The lecture is early in the morning so he tries to make it as interesting as possible. He's a funny guy and seems likeable can seem sarcastic but he does know what he's talking about. There were only two tests and both were very easy if you show up to class and listen to what he says and skim through the chapters in the book...you probably could get away with not reading the book especially on the first test.

Pros: no final exam

not a lot of notes

funny

watch videos

Cons: you never know what day he's taking attendance (you get three free misses) so sometimes you go when he doesn't and the lecture is just pointless stories and you're mad you got out of bed for this
go to class every time and listen and you're good to go

easy A

Pros: The lecture portion of this class is pretty easy. Hollander is very funny/entertaining. I enjoyed the class.
Cons: There is sometimes attendance but its just a sheet that gets passed around. Sometimes the lecture material can be a little obvious
Overall great class. Obviously your experience depends on who your lab teacher is though

3***
Pros: Funny guy, tests are fairly easy if you just read the textbook and go to class
Cons: He pulls a lot of test questions from his class examples/random questions about his family or life, early class, he doesn't really care about your grade or his students for that matter so don't expect any leniency with make-ups, etc.

Pros: Hollander is funny and intelligent and the material is interesting. The tests are super easy and there are only two. I couldn’t imagine having a better professor for this class.
Cons: Slideshows aren’t available online

Things we go over in class aren’t necessarily worth taking notes over/on the test

Pros: He's easy to listen to with great humor.
Cons: None really :)
Hollander is hilarious and his lectures are meaningful. The tests were very easy because the book and especially his class notes/lectures is where he derived his questions. Definitely take this class.

Pros: Hilarious lectures

Really easy test
Cons: None
Loved this guy. Your lab might not be good depending on your TA, but the lectures are funny and informative. I never had trouble paying attention even though the class was at 9am. Easy tests if you come to class

Pros: his class is really interesting and he is pretty fun and tells a lot of stories. He says there is attendance but rarely passes around a role. His two tests are pretty easy if you read the book and listen in class.
