Comment:
He's brutal with late work, so beware of that. His heavy Iranian accent is kind of a problem at first, but you get used to it. He's also a pretty funny guy, he makes a lot of jokes during class. Terrible at grading; he can take literal months to grade simple assignments. He is also willing to help outside class.

She assigns WAY too much homework. I failed her class three times because I just couldn't get it all done in time. Now I've finally passed the class by taking it with a different teacher, and I got an A+ too!

Comment:
The teacher is extremely hard to understand. She talks about how she will help us with the problems in class but when we go into her office to ask she will make you feel stupid and if you dont have half of it done then she wont help you. i dont understand how this is a 130 level class. I was also acused of cheating after I went to a tutor for help.

Comment:
Worst teacher I've ever had. This class is way way harder than is indicated by the numeration. She tells you everything you need to know....once, then expects you to know everything she's said and everything in the book for the tests/quizzes. Avoid this class and her at all costs.

She doesn't fully explain things, she expects you to know things even when you have no computer experiences, and she accuses people of cheating that actually know what they're doing and helps others!

Hard to understand, but does a great job "weeding" out all the students who are not ment for such a subject. I would recommend anyone to take her class. Mainly so they could get an idea of what college is supposed to be like.

Comment:
This class/teacher is one of the worst I have ever had. I changed my major because of it. After retaking the class the 2nd time, there was alot of stuff this teacher did incorrectly, as in grading and clarifying material. She expects you to know every sentence in the book and to know every little thing she says because she doesn't repeat it.

This is a tough class! She always tried to help me when I asked for help. She is hard to understand. She was understanding of personal situations. The best teacher to take, if you have to take the class. Otherwise stay clear.

Shahla is what a college professor should be. If you work hard, youll learn a TON and never forget it. Ignore the bad posts on here, they are from people who didnt work hard in the course. This will be much more intense than most any class youve had in college. Dont be afraid, Shahla is one of the most helpful and nicest ladies ever.

Shala is awesome. One of my favorite all time teachers. A hard grader, but you will learn material and NEVER forget it. I could take her tests and still remember the answers. She rules with an iron fist, but is the nicest lady ever. If you fail her class, its definately your fault. Many people do.

She is very intelligent, if you are interested in programming then it will be good, she knows it all but she has a hard time getting it across. Shes really helpful if you talk to her though, just get on her good side and you should be ok

She tries hard, but she is not good at explaining stuff to students. She also is tough to understand and if Middle-East accents bother you like they bother me, don't take her class.
