Comment:
Dr. Anthony Dixon is one of the best professors. I found his lectures very useful as he worked on examples during his lectures. He explained abstract concepts in a very academic and simple way which inspired me to attend his lecture and use his notes. He uploaded his lecture notes, and he spent a lot of time in his office hours when I needed help.

He is a perfect professor. As long as he has time and you find him in the office, he will do everything to help his students even it's not his scheduled office hour.

Comment:
There was no support for the course by the prof and I did not understand anything. I should have dropped it when i had the chance. I felt his notes did not cater to those who had no previous understanding of computer sciences. I felt his notes were inadequate to understand the material completely.

Do not take this course via DE. Difficult assignment and exams. Very hard to get help for this class. Assignments are nothing like the textbook or study guide. DO NOT RECOMMEND

Good lecture notes. Audio notes are available too. There're sample tests online and quite similar to the midterm. He gives you solutions for assignments which is great. Overall he's a good decent prof in CS. The course is hard though but all CMPT courses are hard you know what I mean.

It's a very hard course, but Tony realizes this and does his best to help every student get a good grade. Many profs at SFU pride themselves in making it difficult to get a good grade, but not this prof - he puts many sample exams online to practice on (and the exams are usually very similar) - he makes audio recordings available and all notes too.

Nice prof and ok explaining skills it's just that the course material is pretty hard. Don't worry his midterms are worth only 10% of total grade while assignments worth 7.5% each(4 assignments in total). He also allows you to replace lab attendance for any assignments u miss.

Comment:
Very friendly and helpful instructor. The difficulty of this course heavily depends on whether or not you regularly go to his office. He posts online notes and audio recordings of each lecture. Tests are hard but not unreasonable. Assignments are easy if you start them early and attend to labs. Everything in the course is well organized.

Tony is the best teacher for this class. Attendance is a must as he does various examples on the overhead and explains them. Does not use powerpoint which is a good thing for this course. Assignments are tough but you do learn a lot.

He is one of the few good profs at SFU. Very knowledgeable, clear, and detailed explanations, always available to help students. If you have a choice, take the course with him! Until now, I think he is the best prof at SFU.
