This guy must be related to Kim Jong Il. Totally enamored with his own inflated self-worth. He teaches 400 level material for a 200 level class. The prerequiste ENGR 197 does not prepare you for his crazy expectations. In addition, the text has nothing to do with his syllabus.

Difficult to follow. I do not prefer his teaching style. Read the textbook and you basically have his lectures. Insane amount of homework. However, the few times he went off track and related what we were doing to real-world applications, I did find interesting and enjoyable.

His grading policy for homework/quizzes/projects was really unclear at first. Once I understood what he and the grader were expecting, I was able to do well. I learned a lot doing the projects

His criteria for grading labs was incredibly unclear, his lectures are just a vocab review from the book yet your are required to attend, &the labs are a nightmare if you aren't fluent in coding. There is no way to get help and if you don't get the labs done during class it's considered late. …more He's also hard to understand due to his thick accent. less

Nothing he says can be understood. His expectations are far above realistic. You're better off teaching yourself C from the textbook. Avoid this professor like the plague.

This guy is basically Kim Jong-un (IUPUI version). Be prepare of hard exams and even harder labs. Even though you attend all classes and you write notes and read the textbook, you may not survive. Yes I forgot, he doesn't follow the syllabus.

Very difficult to understand. Does not consider anything about the student and looks at everything form his own point of view only. Does not respond by email. Quizzes are extremely difficult and the class sits at a 35-40% average the entire semester. Then at the end as to not fail the entire class …more he curves thankfully but still very little to learn less

The lectures are fine. Assignments could be more clear. Only issue, this was not really an Operating Systems class, but rather Embedded Systems. The tests are difficult since there is no homework to practice, I suggest making your own practice problems. There are no problems with understanding Dr. …more Kim, maybe if you have never left indiana. less
