Content is really easy, but the grade scale is really high, I got an 89 but it amounted to a B+. Textbook wasn't really used but it came in a pack with the SGMA 217 book so pretty much forced to buy it... Cam is a goof. The whole course is centred on his company...

Boring class but with helpful tips regarding Microsoft Office. Attending class helps a lot with assignments, labs are boring. Responds to questions in a clear manner but sometimes comes across as a bit condescending.

Recommend taking this class with Cam. If you attend all your lectures, he walks you through the majority of your assignments. He tries to engage everyone in class discussion, is very approachable, and wants his students to succeed. All exams were very fair.

This class was absolutely brutal. Cam made it even worse. He is incredibly condescending & treats everyone like incompetent kindergardeners. Least favourite class by far. Grading scale is ridiculously high.

Cam is a great prof, very approachable. Answers a lot of questions in class and helps out with a lot of the homework assigned mostly in class with class time to work on with groups or in pairs.

Cam is a good guy. Very helpful and seems genuinely interested in students. MGIS 559 is a tough course if you dont have VBA experience. Lots of assignments that can take up to 40 hours. No midterm or final. Very possible to get high marks in the course.

Cam was actually a pretty good prof. I took the class in the spring which i think is ideal because the workload is substantially less in comparison to the fall/winter semesters. Cam is pretty flexible and helpful if you need help.

Cam is a great guy, but I completely agree that the MGIS 317 classes he teached had way too much workload. However, in this class,there are hardly any homework or assignments, aside from the presentations, which count toward most of your marks. You mostly just listen to industry speakers and he marks super easy.good to take in your last semester

He is nice, but a bit self-conceited. He rambles on about how a presentation can be made persuasive, whereas his own lectures are brutally boring. I learnt useful things in this class, but they weren't worth the infinitely many assignments, projects, quizzes, presentations, etc. These things were worth little marks, but demanded a lot of time.

VBA Class...Most demanding and rewarding class. Use skills in this class everyday and have many job offers from it. Cam is always available for help. Do not do this class unless you are comfortable pulling many all nighters (I had 5 times where 3 day all nighters were needed). 5 Assignments each take 40-60 hours. 1 Major assignemtn aswell.

I agree that this class is not difficult, but extremely demanding. The work load is huge. Expect to spend hours on an assignment worth 3%, and then not receive your mark until 3+ weeks later. Really frustrating. Cam is a genuinely nice guy though, I do appreciate his intentions, but the class really is painful. Take it in a lighter semester.

Way too much work in this class. 5 individual assignments and 3 group assignments (all worth only 3% or 5%). Not to include the final group project which included the report, and a "viral" video. All assignments were given little unclear instruction on what to do. Very boring prof, not enthusiastic about the material. Final/Midterm decent.

The worst prof teaching in U of C. Makes the course hell. freaking 25 deliverables in the course, worth 3%, 5% etc. Very poorly structured course. No need to attend lecture. Just read the book and go over his slides. If you wanna get an A, PICK ANOTHER PROFESSOR.

I thought this class was taught well by him. He was very nice and if help was needed he definitely came through. Class has a lot of material but you can achieve a good grade by doing well on assignments and the project, and study textbook with practice tests for the exams.

There is always something due in this class, so many assignments. Regardless it is not a hard class. Although Cam is very vague in his instructions if you go and see him in the office hours he pretty much lays it out for you.

Cam's intentions for the course are good, but his execution is poor. Way too many "mini" assignments, lectures are extremely boring, and his explanations and expectations for everything are vague. Like others have said, it's impossible to fail, and impossible to get an A. He's not a good prof, but at least he cares about the course and students.
