Comment:
Honestly, this is the worst class I've taken at JMU. If you have taken a stat class before and have a solid understanding of it, you will probably do ok. He makes his own handouts which are complicated and kinda hard to understand. His tests are hard and he takes off a lot of points for small mistakes. Very boring lectures.

Comment:
Most boring class I've taken. I put a lot of effort into the class and still ended up getting a C/C- on almost every test. He is a hard grader in the sense he takes a lot of points off for smaller details. He does not use a textbook and writes all of his handouts which are difficult to understand. He seems like a nice person, but DO NOT TAKE!

Comment:
I was a math major when I took this class and ended up having to take the class twice. His lectures are super boring and actually really difficult to listen to. When I went to office hours, he was pretty rude and basically told me it was my fault for not understanding simple concepts. If you can avoid this class, AVOID IT. Worst class I have taken

Professor Lee is extremely approachable outside of class for extra help when needed. He creates handouts covering the material, so a textbook isn't necessary. Homework is optional but you won't do well on the exams without doing it. Cheat-sheets are allowed on every test, but you still need to know how to apply the material.

He was a really nice professor, definitely willing to help you if you have the time to individually ask him questions. He posts his own study guides instead of using a textbook, and allows cheat sheets for every test.

Comment:
The quizzes and tests for each unit were similar and one time he let students skip the test if they got above an 80 on the quiz. You can bring notes for exams and for the final but the final was WAY harder than any test/quiz we had. I got As all semester but a C on the final. The class was easy if u can teach yourself just don't expect him to help

Really nice and wants you to do well, but if you're not good at math try someone else. Goes straight off handouts he's made. DO THE HOMEWORK or you'll do terrible. Lets you bring a sheet of notes for each quiz/test and 4 for the final, don't stress about quizzes because they're dropped at the end. Put in the work and you'll get the grade you want.

The worst professor I have ever had at JMU. If you are not good at math DO NOT take his class. He is so rude and acts like you re dumb if you don't understand something. Tests are so hard and all on SPSS which he doesn't explain how to use at all. He only gives 5 grades .... DO NOT TAKE HIM.

Honestly awful. He is possible the worst teacher I have ever had. He manages to make everyone fall asleep. Had him for MATH229, and it is the hardest class I've ever had, not only because he cannot teach for the life of him but because his notes are the most cluttered, godawful POS I've used. 15-20 hours of studying per test netter me 70s.

Dr. Lees class is not for everyones learning style but overall I think if you pay attention, do the homework, and review for assessments youll be fine. The class relies on SPSS and you NEED to do the homework to learn how the software works. Very few grades but you can use one paper of notes on the tests and he drops your lowest quiz score

Dr Lee is a very nice man, but bases his class off of SPSS which is SO difficult to understand! Please do not take this class if you arent good at math. This is the first class that Ive ever failed before in my life.

WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS! Specifically, if math is not your subject. I'm warning you, my whole class is struggling and there's even a facebook group that talks about how bad this professor is. SPSS sucks and I am way too lost in this class.

Dr. Lee is one of the nicest, most caring professors I've had at JMU. It was his first time teaching this course, so it was a tiny bit disorganized but Dr. Lee was always accessible. The homework in the course is not for a grade, but if you want to succeed you should do it.

Professor Lee knows the subject matter but presents it in a way that is so difficult to understand. He is HORRIBLE and so unhelpful during office hours but also recommends not going to the math center. His whole class is based off an online program (SPSS) and there are only 5 grades for the whole class. Good luck...

He is the worst, if you learn by examples in a math class DO NOT take his class. He teaches based off a computer program, SPSS, and he has been told by other professors not to do it. He also just reads off of a lecture handout and doesn't do examples in class. You only get 5 grades in the class, so you better do well on tests and quizzes.

You are graded by 4 quizzes and 4 tests and all homework is optional. He makes it very clear on the first day that if you dont do homework, you will not pass and its the truth. Class is very SPSS heavy but he lets you use a cheat sheet on all quizzes and tests so if you take advantage of that this class will be an easy A

Professor Lee is a very nice professor and extremely smart, but I feel that sometimes he has trouble relaying information to his students. The class is extremely test heavy (Worth 90% of your grade) and if you fail to show up, you are certain to not do well. At times he would also go on political rants so that became a little frustrating.

Comment:
He is a decent guy but I wouldn't recommend taking him if you aren't the best at math. He thinks everyone should know what they're doing at all times. I was doing poorly in the class and went to his office hours and he didn't give me the time of day. The only way I would say to take him is if you are proficient at math.

Comment:
Lee is cool, however you are graded on few things. He gives handouts instead of using the text book, but all work on quizzes/test/in class HAS to be done on SPSS (no handheld calculators). He is monotoned and can be hard to follow but is accessible outside of class. There is not dated syllabuses so quizzes/tests come out of no where...
