Student Ratings 1 - 10 of 10

 
CMSC 351
Algorithms
2**
Pros: Generally has an idea of what's going on
Cons: Not good at conveying information, incomplete examples, makes lots of mistakes, lectures very unclear, Exams about how clever you are and not how well you know material.
Clyde is very stubborn, and doesn't like it when students don't do algorithms using his specific methods. He also is very unclear when answering questions on Piazza (if he even answers them at all).
