Don't waste your time with the book, you won't need it to teach yourself (although it can help if you aren't clear on a concept from a lecture). Pay close attention during lectures and study slides: you will do poorly even if you only know the basic jist of the lectures...attention to detail is crucial.

Do not hesitate to seek out his help in office hours..especially for projects, he will cut you a little slack on the projects if he likes your group. Also, I would clear up any questions you have on a lecture with him, they will probably boost your grade on an exam.

If you put in the effort and pay close attention during lectures, you will do fine and learn plenty. He's effective at teaching the material and his classes are very enjoyable. He's also a really funny guy, so try to enjoy yourself and the boring parts won't be too bad to listen too. He can be pretty dorky at times, but I avoid making fun of him because he's such a nice guy and he really is good at what he does. My biggest piece of advise is to not miss class or doze off during class, you will struggle to get a C if you do.

Pros: The Quizzes are for Attendance, and you get points for being in class, pretty simple. The exams aren't too difficult as long as you go to class pay attention and review.
Cons: Its sometimes hard to understand him, but after a while you'll get him. He makes a lot of jokes in class
Hes a great teacher, gives a final project at the end of year to work in groups and counts as the final exam so its nice not having to study for another exam during finals week

Pros: Explains materials well!
Cons: Attendance counts towards grade (can be a pro, but for me it was a con)
Professor Bagchi is a gentle professor who explains the nuances of survey design and statistics for Marketing in an easily digestible and humorous format. I highly recommend taking this class with Rajesh.

This is a pretty easy class. Tests are essay, but if you go to class they are simple. He lets you make a "Cheat Sheet" to use for the tests, but I rarely had to use mine. The group project is the most difficult part...it is a long project, but he doesn't grade too hard.

pretty good teacher. reading the book is not necessary because he only tests on the slides which he uploads to scholar. the project is kind of annoying but as long as you are in a good group you should be fine.

Funny guy, but rarely posts grades. Study for his exams by using the powerpoint gone over in class, since the book is rarely used. Go to class - he gives participation points through attendance.

Pros: Awesome professor
Cons: Hard class, group project was a bit difficult, grades are never posted
Raj is the freaking man. I can't say I loved Marketing Research as a whole, but Professor Bagchi is a must-take if you're a marketing major. This class will not be a walk in the park by any means, but at the same time I think he said he's never failed any students before. If you have the option of taking a class with Raj, do it and don't look back. There are 3 tests and 1 group project. The first test is not hard at all, but the remaining 2 are rather difficult and require mathematical/statistical skills in order to do well. If you study you will be alright I think. The group project was pretty extensive however, and if you take this class during the fall you'll end up spending a good chunk of Thanksgiving break working on it because it's due the class you get back. Also attendance is mandatory and takes up 10% of your grade. However there is no final exam so once you finish the project, you've finished the entire class which makes finals week easier for you. I learned a lot in this class, and I'm glad I know what I know now. I believe Professor Bagchi genuinely cares about all his students, and is a pretty chill guy all around. He was very responsive to emails and was always willing to meet with students when available. Only real con was you never find out how you did on the final project and his grading rubric is a bit confusing. But get to know the guy and you'll realize he's not out to get you, he just expects a lot out of his students and wants them to learn as much as they can. This is probably the hardest marketing class I've taken, but Raj has been by far the coolest marketing professor I've had. Would recommend.

Dr. Bagchi is a nice guy but pretty awkward in a goofy way. Genuinely wants his students to perform well and get a general grasp of introductory statistics. Three exams, none cumulative and no hw or mandatory attendance. No textbook either which was nice but you have to print out slides for every class so make sure you have a good printer. Does his best to help raise your grade! Responds immediately to emails, and the group project is not too bad. Only downside is he rarely updates scholar so you have 0 idea what your grade is until the end of the year.

Pros: gives attendance points

willing to help you

answers emails quickly



Cons: group project (but it ends up helping your grade if you do well)

Raj is very knowledgable about marketing research. He tries to present the material in a straightforward way, but I was often still confused. He’s a cool guy with lots of experience. The exams are pretty difficult especially if you’ve never taken a statistics class. Work on the project early. Its a lot of work and you don’t want to have to do it during break.
