He's a nice guy, but he really doesn't seem to have the patience for one-on-one time with students, and his lectures can be quite confusing. When I don't understand something in his labs, him saying "not my problem" didn't help. Like I said, he is a good guy. I just think he'd be better suited back in the industry rather than in teaching.

The stuff is easy to understand, mining and programming: SIMPLE. But he makes everything as difficult to understand as possible. If you question anything he just says "its not my problem" or "welcome to the real world" he never updates notes, god forbid he use excel or word. The guy has to stop blaming the world’s problems on bill gates

Courses did more to prepare me for industry than any others. Professor extremely dedicated to students. Wish they were all this good.

I have never had a bigger set of course notes... But at least they're more useful and well organized than mine 326. Gar is easy to deal with and fair.
