"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Inspirational"

It should be mandatory that you take Kamperdyk if you attend Baruch. I really look forward to attending class. Put the effort in and good grades will follow, not necessarily an "easy A." Prof Kamperdyk will force you to reason and apply logic no matter how illogical you may be. You will leave more intelligent, pay attention. MT

Make sure to read in between the lines of what he says, because those are usually on the exams. Exams gets harder and he respects you for showing the effort to try and get a better grade.

PHI 1600 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Kamperdyk is a very nice prof. No Homework. Textbook and readings are not required. Total 3 tests. Just attending the class and paying attention is enough to get an A. I got an A. Textbook is just an optional to clarify the topics we don't understand.

He teaches in a manner that's easy to understand. Just don't ask too many questions or you'll end up more confused! His tests are fair and I found them quite easy. He gives three tests in total including the final. No homework, and no attendance taken. Overall, he's a very good professor, and I recommend him to anyone!

TAKE HIM! This guy is extremely funny and insanely smart. Good luck trying to out-argue him. He makes the class entertaining by throwing jokes around. The class is a breeze (you either get it, or you don't). Three easy exams with a ton of extra credit. No attendance. No homework. HE'S GREAT; TAKE HIM!

Teacher was super boring. It's almost impossible to stay focused on the lesson. But his tests are super easy. I didn't pay attention throughout the entire semester and still got really high grades. He also didn't take attendance throughout the semester.

He is very talkative. He give review sheet. there is barely any note to take. As long as you read a the text book a little then you are good to go. Project is easy, just write 5 page, double space. Test is little tricky, read question carefully. Should be easy A

One of the best Professor at Baruch College, I took him twice and do not regret it. you learn a lot from his teaching, he knows how to capture everyone;s attention ! he is teaching logic and computer ethics, too bad he doesn't teach another subject :(. he is VERY straightforward and that's what I like the most about him. TAKE HIM !

GREAT PROFESSOR! HARD COURSE BUT IF YOU DONT MISS CLASS, U WILL BE FINE. THIS COURSE REQUIRES YOU TO BE IN CLASS AND ON TIME. IF YOU MISS CLASS OR COME LATE, YOU WILL NOT PASS BECAUSE YOU WILL BE MISSING IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

He's a very easy going guy. He didn't care about formalities like attendance and homework. His lectures though, are very hard to follow. It is an ethics class, therefore do not expect an answer from him. He has an ego that he will impose and it comes out jokingly, but he's serious. The final was hard, because it requires a judgment & interpretation

Truly nice dude. Give 2 classes to preview exams, and hold extra sessions b4 final exam to help out students.Gd choice for an easy elective, if you think you can grasp the basic principle of logic. Otherwise,it is a pain.I see people struggling b/c they simply cannt get the material...But i believe most ppl should be fine.

VERY NICE PROFESSOR. Recommended to take his logic class. Even though a little bit tough to follow his writing speed on board, it's still very clear to understand what he's talking about. Organized materials, helpful handouts. I only had 1 HW to hand in. Rare use for txtbook except for studying.

The best professor! No HW, no textbook required, no term paper! Study his hand-outs and be attent in class. The exams are easy. He tells what exactly he wants you to know. First class seems confusing, but don't worry. I got a B- without any affort. He will explain very clear after class; you even can ask him questions right before the exam starts.

Arrogant self-righteous individual. Doesn't promote class discussion but rather attacks those that participate with leading questions with the belief that he's the only one right when the topics discussed are subj. Harrows in on choice of words but is not conscious that he excessively uses filler words that abstruse ppl ability to comprehend him.

He is a very nice professor. I took him on fall and you should take him too if you want to learn something new and interesting besides the requirements for the school. Just study his handouts and you will be just fine.
