BCIS 4660
Decision Systems Design
1*
Pros: Massive curve

Easy to get an A, difficult to get worse than a B
Cons: Absolutely awful professor
Becker spends the first hour of class slowly returning previous assignments, then spends the remaining time (and often plus some) talking about nothing much at all, especially nothing related to the material covered on the exams. The assignments are your lifeline, put as much effort into those as possible and take every opportunity for extra credit because you will likely do poorly on the exams. Don't worry though, he knows how bad he is and gives everyone the largest curve I've ever seen on both exams. That and the extra credit should get you an A.

Introduction to Database Applications
4****
Pros: Teaching with examples are somewhat tricky, but Becker breaks it down to where everyone can understand. He's very nice and very helpful if you ask him and show that you're doing your work.
Cons: The tests are tricky with questions that aren't recognizable from the lecture and books. Homework is extremely time consuming with programs that aren't up-to-date. Best advice: Do it early.
Becker is a wonderful teacher. The class is semi-hard, but at the same time he's there to help everyone. He does curve on exams, but it's best to study for the exams. So don't expect a whole lot from him. What makes him great is the fact he's different from most professors. I was a few points away from a B, and he gave me a chance to earn it by doing a bonus exercise. I did it and passed with a B. So really, you're in for a treat if you work and study hard. He'll know and will give you the grade you earn from your effort. Don't take his kindness for granted.
