MICRO 470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Very unhelpful. He likes what he teaches, but lectures are very unclear. Be sure to read the books that are assigned to the class to gain any knowledge. Grades unfairly.

MICRO470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst professors I've had. Unable to explain concepts in a clear matter and repeats himself making the lecture hard to follow. I also feel he focuses too much on less applicable information. The only saving grace is that the exams are take home and follow the book fairly closely. If you are stuck taking this class with him, good luck.

MICRO470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

One of the least helpful and most pompous professors I've had. He thinks his teaching style is great, but it's lacking in clarity. Do not take this class with him. One of the worst I've had.

Micro470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Ridiculous. Worst class ever. Made me change my major. Don't take it unless you need it. You cannot understand him and he doesn't write on the board clearly. Go to the TA for help who stays on FB during class. -_- READ if you miss a lecture. WORK in groups or you will fail.

Micro470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Professor has a thick Polish accent and was difficult to understand. I thought the material was way over my head and I didn't understand much. The book compliments the lectures really well and I read the book for clarification.I took my tests to him at the end of the semester to get points back and he was kind and changed my grade from a C to BC.

Micro470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Really interesting class. Lectures are useful, but reading the textbook helps clarify. All exams are take home. The questions may be confusing but he is always happy to clarify. The exams actually make you think and apply the course material, and easy if done in groups.

Mirco470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is impossible to talk to. His exam questions are often hard to understand, and the answers he expects sometimes do not answer the question. He has admitted to grading differently based on his mood. It is however easy to get points back if you go to his office hours

MICRO370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I put the easiness so high because all his exams (final included) were take home. The final was optional and did not hurt your grade if you took it. Lectures were rather unclear, as his Polish accent was thick and he would repeat himself. It's worth taking Micro 370 with him purely for the take home exams, which he encourages group work on them.
