Ok professor - seems to make things seem harder than they actually are. He also is a very nit-picky grader and will take off points for the smallest things, however he does try to help with dropping the lowest quiz grade, not collecting all the homeworks, and the final contains many questions seen before. All in all, not the worst class but not the best either.

Cons: He is one of the most condescending teachers I've ever had. It's not for a lack of trying either, I went to office hours and I've never had someone make me feel so stupid. In class he gives you the problems and then the solution, not taking much time in between. He's determined to get students who don't go to class so he leaves much of the powerpoints blank so you're trying to frantically copy everything down and can't pay attention. After our last quiz he said "Are you guys going to explain to me why you did so badly?" And someone said it's because you don't take enough time explaining the problems and he said actually I was looking for you to say you don't study. He said he doesn't have enough time to go through more examples, yet almost always let's us get out of class early and cancels class on Fridays so he can go back up to DC. As far as personality and interactions with students, he's the worst teacher I've had.

took him last summer... had a good grasp on the subject matter but condescending to his students. his exams weren't terribly difficult. in fact, the final was very easy. 60% of it was just previous test questions.

Pros: For Summer I he didn't have class on friday which is a plus. He put previous questions on quizzes and tests.
Cons: Very condescending, border line disrespectful, and over-all does not make the course fun and exciting. He read of the powerpoints and didn't really give a detailed explanation. Outside of his office hours he is not really willing to help you either. If you take his course prep with your peers and go over vocab.
This class could have been a lot easier and a lot less stressful. A lot of that falls on the way he teaches. Anyone can read of powerpoints. Overall not a clear cut professor. Everythings gray area
