Worst teacher I have had in SFSU's IS department. Teacher did not know any of the material in the course, and had the students take turns teaching. The tests were difficult and graded harshly. Honestly I don't think Nickerson could pass the tests himself. The text he uses is horrible and very …more expensive. less

Very lazy professor. Picky grader. Doesn't know much about the subject matter he is teaching. Sometimes forgets where he is. It's a shame that the only reason he is still teaching is because he has tenure. A complete waste of money.

Not a hard nor easy class. You'll learn basic SQL the first half of the semester and database modeling the second half. Class consists of a few assignments, midterm, final, and group project.

Class was easy. The teacher explains the topic at hand pretty good. Provided great examples. I recommend taking him for isys 464. Very helpful and answers email fast. Just 7 assignments, 2 exams and a group project. The book is not necessary but good reference.

Well structured class. He put online lectures for most of the topics and used class time to review assignments, quizzes, and answer questions. Though he can sometimes be a little disorganized, he did do a good job of explaining and breaking down the material. Be prepared to study/work outside of …more class. less

Prof is old-school. Class fast paced, but he's one of the best prof to learned from about SQL. Code/design examples are limited so it's hard to compare the correct way. exams are moderately challenging. 1 group project. 2 exams (curves a bit), 7hw. Too bad he's retiring, but he's teaching a …more different class isys 699 using python for data analysis. less
