She isnt a great professor. Her class is extremely boring and you dont learn much in class but you have to go because she gives inclass pop quizzes. i missed a class quiz and it dropped my grade 2 points. being in class is important. its the difference between an A- and B+.

Kind and caring teacher. However, I recommend that you either take meticulous notes, bring a tape recorder, or both. Her notes are often open ended without answers, and the textbook is hardly much help. If you need instant gratification, prepare to be frustrated. Oh, and she doesn't allow laptops in class.

Amazing professor. One of the few profs at Bing that care, and she cares so much more than most. Take notes in class, read what she tell you, and learn to hang out in the cs dept. it will make 471 much nicer. It is a tough class, but its only as difficult as you make it. She is awesome in regards to helping.

CS471 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is very challenging, and the homework is very time-consuming. However, Professor Head is one of the most helpful and caring teachers I have ever known. Just be sure to come to class and get the work done, and try not to take this class at the same time as other difficult classes. In the end I think you'll find it's well worth the effort.

There's no better advocate for CS students than Prof. Head. She's tough in 471, but she will keep her door open and help you for more time than any prof in the entire school. If you get to know her and show her some effort, trust me - you'll find you have no better friend in the department. (Tip: Google all HW in 471.)

Nothing bad to say about her. The material is hard but she will do what it takes to help you. Show up, do the work sincerely, and you'll do great and learn a lot.

Advisor Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Eileen is one of those rarities - her sole focul is to assist her students to grow and learn. She will not succomb to fads, nor will she dumb down her curriculum, She will give you as much time as you need so as to learn the right skills. You will leave her class marketable, proud, and with real skills. Professor Head rocks!

You will learn a lot in her class. Will you remmeber any of it in 6 months? Maybe. Anyway, she's hard, and her homework will beat your ass down,but her tests are average in length and toughness. She is willing to help you if you want to learn. Go to office hours. If you do poorly in her class, it's because you're lazy. Lazy people flip burgers.

Had I not taken java back in high school, I would have been lost in Head's class. Not the best teacher in the world, definetly unclear and disinteresting at times, however she was very helpful and cared about her students very much. Definetly a work class.

Proffesor Head is by far the best teacher in the CS department-if you have a choice of what proffesor you take a class with, take it with her. Her courses are not too hard and not too easy-you'll learn alot. More importantly she goes out of her way to help her students if you come after hours.

Professor Head is tough. Be prepared to do lots of homework but you will learn a lot from the class. She took extra time to assist me and answer my questions. She is awesome and very helpful...She bangs!!!

CS 373 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Expect an avalanche of paper homework with little value, and rather confused lectures that don't really help. She is a very approachable teacher though, and a nice person, and she knows what she's talking about - even if she can't express it very well.

Teaches a very helpful class- I'm enjoying it quite a bit. However, she is seemingly incapable of expressing herself clearly, and answers any question other than the one which was actually asked. For a CompSci professor, the code on her (massive amounts
