He assigns very hard homework and has very few office hours to help. He uses PowerPoint, but most of his examples are the book's examples. He is hard and gives little to no partial credit. Homework accounts for 55% of the grade.

Homework almost every class is 55% of grade. Problem that takes you 15 min. to do counts the same as problem that takes you 2 sec. Office hours are 1 hour before class and there are many people in his office at once so no individual help. In my opinion his term project is way too difficult for the …more course. Nice man, but I wouldn't take him again. less

Homework counts for 55% of final grade which is great except the homework is extremely difficult. I would not subject myself to another class with this professor if I had a choice in the matter. His tests are difficult. I would assume we have lost 40-50% of the class to drops from the last …more test's attendance. If you take him GOOD LUCK! less

This class was made harder than it should have been. The man is definitely intellignet, but he is not a teacher. He reads the slides verbatum and he will only work homework solutions if he has the manual in front of him. Homework is 60% of the grade. Avoid him if you can.

Terrible class, terrible instructor = bad combination. This class is really dry and he is just as boring. I would avoid at all costs. Most people felt fortunate that they got a C. Lots of homework that is graded. Tests are difficult.

I see a lot of whining from folks about Dr. Petty. I liked having homework as 50% of the grade; it forces you work hard on it rather than skim it. Also, he grades on a scale so if you get the highest grade in the class you get a 100. People just don't want to work. I work full-time, have …more have two teenagers, worked my butt off and made an A+ less

I went to the class dreading this class because of the comments from here. But he turned out to be one of my favorite teachers of all time. He pretends to be hard just to scare everyone away. But he becomes nicer throughout the class period.

Do your homework and go to class, and you shouldn't have any issues at all. Dr Petty is very organized and concise. Extremely knowledgeable in subject area. Wish all professors were like him.

Hard class (but you WILL learn). Homework assigned almost every class and due the very next class. He lets you choose the weight for your homework and tests (I would weigh homework as much as possible). A grader grades his hw and he grades the test, he grades THOROUGHLY. Weigh the homework to the …more max and do good on the homework and you'll be fine. less
