I love Sayre's funny personality, but his teaching style leaves something to be desired. Expect to learn by copying from his in-class assignments and teaching yourself from there. Most importantly, his instructions for assignments are unclear and vague, making projects and homework difficult to …more complete. less

Dr. Sayre is a good professor who teaches because he loves the subject. There are times where he gets a little over technical and his homework wording is occasionally ambiguous, but he is very open to questions during class and is willing to explain the concepts. His exams are tough - make sure you …more know the material. less

Dr. Sayre is one of the more personal professors I've ever had. That being said, he focused his Intro to C-Programming class for the students who already knew the material. Unless you have a good grasp of the C language I would not take his course. He will assign projects and homework that people …more in CS 221(Data Structure) have yet to discuss. less

Is he knowledgeable concerning the material? Yes. Is he adept at teaching the material? No. If you don't already have some programming experience it will be an uphill battle for sure. His assignments are worded in such a way that it's difficult to even understand what he wants.

Save yourself the stress and headache and take someone else. If you're new to programming don't expect to learn it in his class. Even if you pass which is a roll of the dice you'll have taught yourself enough to get by but not learn C.

He was very specific with what we were being taught, and his lectures were amazing. He had a good sense of humor and Dr. Sayre taught me a lot in the short class time. I would most definitely take him again.

I think Dr. Sayre gets a bad rap. His email is always open for any questions that you have. Despite his military background, he is a funny and nice guy. He wants you to pass. The exams given are easy as long as you've been paying attention. He has even said: "I'm bound to give you partial …more credit even if you write 'I've fallen and I can't get up'". less
