Awful teacher. Powerpoints only have pictures out of the book. Did not use his own test which did not have much that we went over..class average for firt test was 54 and he did not scale it. Does not show up for office hours or his tests.

With all due respect, I am sure he is a wonderful person but his teaching skills and attitude towards the class is absolutely deplorable. When you ask for help he says he is too busy, he doesn't make his own exams nor powerpoints, the first exam 98 out of 99 students failed. If you have a choice …more pick another professor! less

Perhaps the worst instructor in the history of academia. His lectures are of little to no use and he gives absolutely no indication as to what is going to be on the tests. Although over 80% of the class is failing, he has the audacity to blame it on the students instead of questioning his own …more methods of instruction. Avoid this one. less

To just state that his class is a tough one does a disservice to all potential students. His testing and teaching methods are by far the worst I've had at any level of education. His PowerPoint presentations and his tests have no resemblance whatsoever and its painfully obvious on test days. …more Avoid at all costs! less

This class should not be as hard as this instructor makes it. 85% of the class had a D or below, with 96% of the class making a C or below. On the second exam, there were no A's, and the class average was a 50. He did blame the students for their bad grades, when it was definitely not the problem. …more Avoid if possible, complain if necessary. less

Probably the worst professor, nay teacher, I have had since my 4th grade teacher Mrs. Gibson. The tests are short but over 200+ pages of material. The lectures are taken right out of the book with no focus on important topics. The tests assume you understand material that is briefly mentioned in …more class, but never explained. Ask anyone that took him. less

His class was a nightmare! He's well-intentioned and a brilliant researcher, but clueless about teaching. Went over main definitions and diagrams from 3/4 of a chapter per class, then tested us on impossible word problems and minutiae, and made us write "challenge" essays for homework. p.s. 26 …more chapters in a semester is TOO MUCH! less

Horrible doesnt even begin to describe this professor. Does not care about students or teaching. No correlation from lecture to test. AVOID!

Try asking for help, reading the text, studying the vocab, studying other professors tests, and memorizing the slides, and I doubt you will get over a D. This professor (using this term oh so lightly) is a waste of your time. He doesn't help, he creates unjust assumptions, and barely scales his …more tests. Avoid this man at all costs!!! less

THIS IS CRAZY. Like what the heck. First Exam studied for over two weeks and I made a 45. Second Exam I studied for five weeks and made a 60. Absolutely the worst professor/ learning experience I have EVER had. I love the subject but the exams are a complete joke. Avoid him at all cost unless you …more feel like sacrificing your G.P.A. less
