Comment:
Actually a great professor. He keeps your attention in class and gives real life scenarios and tells funny jokes, unlike most professors that read from a powerpoint or textbook. He gives lots of extra credit opportunities. Take his class if you can, it may not be the easiest section of 309 but definitely the most interesting.

Comment:
He really is not bad at all and is actually a really nice guy just is different from other professors. Some of his jokes are pretty funny but overall class is not as bad as everyone else wrote about it. Make sure to go to class since there are group assignments almost every class and re study the book. You'll do fine if you do that.

Comment:
I had this guy for 309 and 422 . Ultimately the worst and strangest professor at UD. Very cocky. He likes to get right up next to students, calls on them to answer questions and deliberately tries to make it awkward. Luckily you have other teachers that teach 309, but unfortunately if your a business student - you are stuck with taking him for 422.

Comment:
Strange guy...lectures are conflicting with the book...always lectures using a microphone...laugh at all his jokes and go to class...group assignments almost every class so attendance is important and TAKE GOOD NOTES...his curves are amazing! ...so if the average for an exam is a 20 than its a C and an A might be a 50 or 60 for the exam

Comment:
Very boring teacher, if you can find another professor. Exams are wordy/tricky, and sometimes during his lectures the material can be confusing. Textbook is a must as well, he will have questions on exams that are from the chapters, but not necessarily spoken about in class

Comment:
Professor Weiss, is the man. His tests are tricky but what business test goes straight to the point. He makes class interesting with his humor and he uses a microphone to talk. His tests are somewhat hard but he is understanding and last test an 85% was an A, therefore he sort of curves.

Funny guy, bad teacher. Lectures are somewhat interesting because of his sense of humor. Confusing a contradicting material. Exams are 50/50 lecture and textbook. Averages were in the 70s after a curve.

Comment:
He's funny guy and makes the class interesting. It's definitely my favorite class of the semester, but he's a tough grader and his tests aren't the easiest. The tests are half from the book and half from in class lectures and his questions are tricky. He curves grades based on how the class does. I studied a good amount for each exam and got B's.

Do not listen to these other reviews. Professor Weiss was a great professor. He makes the material interesting and memorable by tying the concepts together. His dry humor is amazing and who doesn't love his mustache. Yes he may rip you apart occasionally, but he is always willing to help and overall just a nice guy.

Stay away from this guy. He is nuts, an ego-manaic, and unfair. Everyone hates him and there is no reasoning with him, he always thinks he's right and is hard on you if your wrong. He defines the expression "Those who can do, those who can't teach."

Comment:
Most frustrating professor to have in Business school. He means well, but is very confusing, difficult and skews everything he says. Must keep up with weekly quizzes on material that comes 100% from book. Treats you like dirt. Thinks he knows everything there is about management. Participation grade a joke. Highly consider finding different prof.

Comment:
Weiss is one of the hardest professors that i have ever experienced but he knows his stuff (and you better learn it too). In class you need to use his terms, and he is very sarcastic, so at points you dont know if he is making fun of you or just being funny. GO to his office hours, he is helpful. In class get used to having your work ripped apart.

Comment:
Agree w/ the last rating. He is so frustrating. Would lecture on research study as if he knew the people and then tell us that all of their findings were skewed and not true. Very sarcastic and demeaning. Ironic that he's teaching a management class and the only way he motivates is by his ridiculous participation grading system

There are not enough words to describe the hate I have for this man. NOT helpful. Stubborn. Close-minded. EVIL. Participation grade is a joke. Don't even bother going to class, you won't learn anyway. Should have stuck w/ my gut and dropped the class in the very beginning.
