Its essentially a lecture hall. He won't really know you by name unless you talk in class, and there aren't many chances to do that. If you can take good notes, you can pass this class. He drops the lowest exam grade.

He explains things slowly, but goes through a lot of material. You get used to his accent, and he tries to liven things up with funny examples.

Hard to understand and exams are extemely difficult. I have no idea how I passed his class the exams were incredibly hard I wouldn't recommend taking a class with him he doesn't explain anything clearly he just goes on and on about whatever. Don't take a class with Kim.

Dr. Ki Hoon Kim knows what he is talking about, and uses a lot of dry humor in his classes. I did horribly in his class throughout the semester, and ended up with a B. He has a very strong accent, but if you pay attention and show effort in class, you will be fine.

Heavy accent. Test are difficult but if you put in any effort you will pass. I never went to class and barely opened the book and still passed. Nice guy.

This guy is really hard to understand he has 4 test and drops the worst one. His test can be hard but if you read the book you should be able to do ok.

Very hard class. 3 test and the final. Drops the 2 lowest test grades and if you do better on the final then your highest test thats your grade. Even though its a hard class I'm pretty sure everyone passes because I was suppose to fail and got a C-. Normally I am an excellent student but this class was hard and he has a very heavy accent.

to describe in one word: terrible. You can't understand anything that comes out of his mouth and his test are from left field, i honestly have no idea were the material on them comes from. His hand writing is tiny and very hard to read, he gives no curb on his impossible test and everything he tells you to review for the test is not on it.

This class is ridiculously hard. The notes are useless and class is very very boring and it is hard to stay awake. He is very quiet and tells the dumbest jokes ever that have no relation to anything. There is no extra credit, quizzes, homework, or papers,so there is only 3 exams and he drops the lowest, which are very hard. Dont take this guy

He is a nice person but his tests do not reflect what is taught in class. There are many questions on the test that don't appear in the reading either.

Yes, his jokes are a little off color. but he explains the concepts very well using common everyday examples. Class is a little boring at times, but it is easy, just read the text, go to the website and take the practise quiz, and you'll be fine.

This professor was horrible, he was totally unfair and if you missed a class he refused to listen to the reason why you were absent and did not let you make up anything. He was extremely boring and didn't make class exciting. His jokes were off topic and completely irrelevent.It was a horrible class.
