CMSC 250
Discrete Structures
4****
Pros: The class is pretty easy to pass if you pay attention.

Donald is a pretty good teacher
Cons: It is very hard to pay attention, his lectures are very dry and he spends an hour and 15 minutes teaching concepts that could be covered well in 30 minutes. He drags on forever.
He knows his stuff but is just really hard to pay attention because of boredom. Bring coffee
