Comment:
You can't sit in the back and except to do well in this class. He does not talk very loud and is very monotone. If you have to take him, just know the class is slpit up between prof. and he is only there for half the semester and take advantage of the TA!!

He's very old and outdated. Not to mention he is monotone and very useless. His power points make no sense and makes students feel like they are clueless. i would never recommend taking one of his classes.

He is honestly one of my favorite teachers. He is great at getting the material through to students as well as pushing the students to do well in the class. He makes you work for your grade, but also makes the class fun and interesting.

Comment:
He is definitely cynical and not very outgoing. That's just how he is. He does tend to cloud detail to make you find the obvious and it is tricky. Once you get used to him, he really is a good guy and not a bad prof. No class has ever pushed me to the limits like this one.

Comment:
He talks the whole entire class period and you have to catch on fast. It is not a hard class if you read the book. He makes you work for your grade. It is pretty easy and he gives study guides. he also curves the grade at the end. I think he is a pretty nice guy for that. He is a bit boring.

A nice guy but I had a hard time grasping some of the concepts. It does help to read the book because the questions on the tests and quizzes come completely from the book and not from his lectures.

He looks like Colonel Sanders from KFC. He is very monotone. He tells corny jokes. If you like and understand Biology you might do ok.

His class was kinda boring, but no that hard. As the semester went on, he grew on me. If you try, you can get an A.

Comment:
Generally a good teacher, I feel I have a solid handle on statistics after his class. What is due for homework is sometimes vague. I didn't find him as hard to deal with as other ratings have claimed. Getting help outside of class is difficult. Exams were thorough but fair, although you have to memorize all equations. Generous partial credit.
