CS 3350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: WD

His "teaching" involved handing out video lectures that were 1:30 long, then made us watch the SAME video the following class. He was supposed to encourage discussion of the videos, but instead he watched them with us during "lecture" with his back against us, so he couldn't even see if we had questions or not. Easily the worst professor at Western

CS3342b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A-

Terrible at conveying information. This man should not be a professor. Those course was awful because of him when I was actually looking forward to it.

CS3350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took this class a couple years ago. To the person saying that he is good but he sucks at conveying information, his entire job is conveying information. If he sucks at that, he sucks at his job.

I won't bother talking about the prof. Just make sure to study in a group, or else you will have a hard time...

CS350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Unprepared before lectures. He started drawing a circuit on the board once and after 10 minutes of scribbling he gave up and said "shoulda made it into a slide". Kinda sums up his teaching style. I duked it out with him once in class because of how incomprehensible he was. I regret not having complained about him. worst prof. worst grade I ever got

CSB Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

It was many years ago. But still now in my mid 30s I am reminded what an awful, god awful, horrible teacher this guy was. Some migh try and make a connection that he's a pre-madonna and SINCE he was twit that he MUST know what he's talking about. Sadly, he did not. Not only was he an insufferable old coot he had a poor grasp of his course.

What on earth is he talking about!? It's impossible to figure out what's going on in this class about 90% of the time. It doesn't help that we have to use a very cryptic circuit simulator he wrote himself, and don't have a real textbook OR online notes. He wants to be helpful, but can't communicate. Most stressful course I've ever taken.

CS4413 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Good course, good prof. Nice guy, always has interesting anecdotes. Assignments were fun (code breaking) and relatively easy once you got the idea.

CS350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Guess I'm going against the grain here. I got over 90% in his course. It's hard and he's not the greatest at conveying information. However, he is a very nice guy if you actually go to his office and talk to him, and he is willing to help you. You're in 3rd year Comp Sci. Other profs have babied you up to this point. Webber won't do that.
