Excellent communication of class materials, and provides a very concise set of slides. Not a lot of depth, but the overall concepts are well taught.

Engaging. Sense of humor. Homework is challenging and helpful. Exams are difficult but fair. He's very accessible answering questions.

Mark is not hard, it just seems that way. The thing to keep in mind (and he will reiterate this) is that he does not expect you to complete everything - more like 70%. And to pass you need 70% of that, meaning if you get half credit on everything, you're good. One of the few CS classes I didn't …more want to sleep through. less

This was the best class I've taken at PSU. If you have the chance to take a class with Mark, do it. If you can wait for him to teach the class you need to take, do it. (Note: the way he writes exams and does grading is frightening at first.)

An excellent professor. As others have mentioned, not quite as hard as he seems (since he doesn't expect you to finish everything). But not an easy professor either. A good lecturer, but it's extremely important to ask questions if you are having trouble, because he will just zip through things …more otherwise. Homework was always interesting. less

Mark completely devotes himself to teaching and helping students. He is very good at answering questions via mailing list. Grading is tough, but his grading scale mitigates it. In addition, Mark is a very pleasant person.

Most dedicated, helpful and encouraging professor I have had. Goes out of his way to help. Spends many hours of his own time preparing addition videos and text to support the class. Emails are always replied to promptly and answers are thorough. Never ever heard a disparaging word or even a sigh of …more frustration from him when students had questions. less

In my entire academic experience, I have truly never had anyone so eager to answer questions. Whether it be in class, office hours, or emails, and he always goes way beyond to give you the proper feedback. His tests and homeworks can be very difficult, but he also makes up for it by his grade …more scaling. less
