Wow. Be prepaired to teach yourself everything you need to know. Classes are not helpful. Lectures are confusing and not thought out, not to mention when practice problems are worked he just does them himself and shows you them on a screen and says "okay any questions?" for about 15sec and then …more goes to the next thing... worst class of my life. less

Probably the worst teacher I've had in years. Everything I've learned in this class has come from my own research. Many times lectures have left me feeling more confused about a topic I previously understood. Zimmerman does not field questions well, so don't even try. Test grading is alost …more completely arbitrary. Avoid at all costs. less

I learned absolutely nothing in this class. Lectures are disorganized and he does not do a good job explaining concepts. Do not take this class with him.

His daily quizzes are a complete joke because he doesn't even give us enough time to read the question before skipping ahead to the next one, so you have to randomly guess on everything. He does not explain problems that he works out in class. only shows solutions. His grading is extremely unfair. …more AVOID UNLESS YOU WANT TO FAIL. less

Online homeworks were regular 100% scores. Daily quizzes were 60% average at best. Tests given never scored higher than 50% and felt arbitrarily graded. He is very hard of hearing, and most people in the class gave up attempting communication during class after the first three weeks. Nice guy, …more but horrible professor. less

I truly do not understand why everyone doesn't prefer Dr. Zimmerman. I love his teaching style and he tells you EXACTLY what is going to be on the test. TAKE THIS COURSE IN THE SUMMER if you can. It's way easier. Also, his quizzes and homework are so easy.

Can't miss class because of daily quizzes. He goes on random tangents about his old research for 45 minutes frequently. Absolute worst professor that I've ever had the displeasure of having. If you can find any other way to take the class you should in order to avoid having this professor and …more having to deal with his utter ignorance with students. less

Dr. Z is the worst professor I have ever had in my life. He gives out impossible quizzes at the end of every lecture that have nothing to do with what was just talked about. He tells a lot of stories that have no relevance to what you are learning, and he can't hear at all. When he does teach, it …more isn't clear. The tutor saved my grade in this class. less

Even for a very strong student, this is a tough professor. If you are prepared to study a LOT on your own, then an A or B is possible. Good: Tells us what is on each exam + eq. sheet. Bad: Even reading ahead, my quiz average was 40%, despite 90% exam average. Lectures are rarely on topic. Advice: …more Read ahead! Do problems. You will be on your own. less
