Dr. Lejk genuinely cares about his students. Class is easy if you do the work. Papers are short and he isn't a hard grader as long as you follow his rules. Grades are papers and a presentation. Easy class and a great professor. I learned a lot.

Comment:
Dr. Lejk really does want students to do well in this class. He does come across as harsh sometimes, but he isn't a mean professor. It's rare to find a CS professor that cares about how their students do, but it's obvious that Dr. Lejk does.

He genuinely wants you to learn and pass. Really nice guy that cares about his students, hard to find that kind of attitude anymore it seems. Highly recommend.

Comment:
Dr. Lejk is a great professor. I have been his TA for about 1.5 yrs and have laughed a lot with him. The class is easy if you know how to follow instructions and pay attention to the syllabus. The papers are graded heavily on grammar, but you are given opportunities to improve your grade. He also bumps grades. It will be a sad day when he leaves

Comment:
I have mixed feelings about Lejk. The class was actually pretty cool, but he grades papers according to his own rules. Throw out anything you learned in ENG2116 about grammer because there are now Lejk's rules of grammer. But once you learn his style it's easy to write for him. I have been told to take the Friday class, 4 less papers.

this professor is very good. and this class was an easy A for me. be prepared for a lot of writing, though. if you know what you're talking about in the essays he assigned and you follow his simple requirements (thesis, supporting paragraphs, conclusion), then you will get high grades. attendance is mandatory and make sure you do your presentation.

Awesome teacher. Papers are short, but he grades tough. Its an easy A if you go to class and take some time to write your 2 page papers without error. I would take him for every class if it was possible. Also, will advise you and knows what to tell you unlike most advisors.

This will be an easy class for good writers and those who are willing to participate in class discussions when necessary. CAUTION: the worst grading scheme I have ever encountered. Does not give grades higher than an A-. No room for error and will not grade up any 88s or 87s.

While I don't agree with Dr. Lejk on a good number of things, he is a brilliant teacher. He allows us to run the class 70% of the time on subjects that we sign up for. While he grades like an English professor and gives a ton of homework, he is fair and constructive with his criticism. I would advise anyone to take his class.

Interesting class and a nice break from the rigor that is the CS curriculim at UNCC. He grades your papers tough for your own benefit so that you will learn from your mistakes. That's a good professor! Don't pay attention to your grade-he undoubtably curves your grade UP if you try hard and improve.

Great teacher. Attendance Required. Tests are choose 5 of 10 questions. Questions are usually one word, or short answer. Take good notes. Didn't need book for class. Study notes regularly to keep up for one question pop quizes (not that bad). "Columns are rows in his class."

See, the idea behind it, ladies and gentlemen, is that Dr. Lejk is the best compsci professor at UNCC. Have a good weekend and don't drink and drive!

There is a 2003 edition of the MLA handbook at the Reserve desk on the main floor of the library that will help with your papers. Save money on the suggested manual for class which is a summary version of the real thing.

This will help for 3688. Trust me, you don't want to spend countless hours figuring out the proper way to cite your work. He'll find something else wrong with your papers. He's a predator... http://hhsd.k12.nj.us/library/workscited.htm

Class of 2001 here. His classes are great. I thought I knew how to write, but Dr Lejk singlehandedly has changed the way I write. I used to think he was a jack-ass before I took his classes. He's one of the best at UNCC.

1996 alumni, here. Leijk is still my favorite professor. Learned more "business sense" from him than any other professor - things like writing requirement specs, presentations, etc. Don't let his retired military rep fool you - Nice, fair, he
