IDS476 ECON450 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher ever. do not take her!!! she just doesn't know how to teach. 13 students out of 23 dropped the class before the midterm and 3 more after the midterm where he average grade on the midterm was 66/100.there is only one midterm and it's worth 40% of the final grade.

IDS 476 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I rarely write these before I finish the class, but I can safely say that in my senior year Wang is the the worst teacher I've had at UIC. Over halfway done with the course, we finally get homework and poor feedback. Speaks way too much in greeks that don't apply to business majors. 476 is not an applicable/useful class and is unreasonably hard.

IDS476 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not take her! She is a horrible teacher! You can barely understand what she says and she is not helpful! She sucks at grading the homework. Half way through the semester she started giving homework back. I asked her a question after class about a homework assignment and she was very rude and not helpful.

IDS570 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This course is challenging. The class is a lot of work but if you work hard everything should be fine. Two exams 65%, project 15%, homework 15%, attendance 5%.

IDS 371 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She jumps around through her notes constantly, making the near pointless in-class "learning" even less inviting. Pretty difficult to understand. Get a group together to review for exams b/c you're basically going to relearning everything that she "taught" in class. 1 midterm 30%. 1 Final 50%. HW 15%. Attendance randomly checked 5%.

If you attend class and sit in front and pay attention you will be fine. She is really nice and I think she is trying to be more thorough this semester. I did very well.

This lady is brutal. Somebody who is teaching a math class should be able to clearly annunciate and pronounce words. She is ANYTHING but easy. The only positive is that she will e-mail you back lightning quick, however you may not even be able to understand her through email either. MISERABLE professor

1. Get a study group together - online or other. 2. Relearn stats 1 stuff or your going to be lost from day 1 and screwed. 3. Her accent is bad. However, after 3+ years at UIC, it's not the worst. For those new, good luck lol. 4. Work together at all costs. 5. Go to her 1 on 1 for help; not too bad. 6. The guy before her was harder and more strict.

I would not recommended her to anyone!! She is impossible to understand, mumbles, has a very strong accent,and easily one of the worst professors at UIC. Either be ready to teach yourself or have a complete understanding of stats if you take this course with her.

IDS371 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class started off very easy..Everyone had the same midterm, people cheated all the time in the class, she did not make me like the subject at all. You have to do alot of teaching yourself outside of the classroom. Her accent isnt that bad but there is a barrier. She said she would curve the final but didn't...I wouldnt take her again.

Ok you guys are over reacting. I took her for stats II and she?s not the greatest professor but she?s better than the alternative Professor. Test were easy and if you needed help with the homework all you needed to do is go to her office and she would do it with you. I had a 100% on the HW. There are Professors at UIC with worst accents.

Very difficult to understand. Cannot explain topic well. I wish a teacher who was fluent in English taught this class because Business Statistics is a tricky subject and requires explaining. Unfortunately she cannot relate the subject to real world business situations due to language :-(

Horrible Horrible Horrible! Don't make the mistake of taking her. She mumbles and barely understand what she says. She does not know how to explain to. She categorizes everyone as Grad students. Exams were closed book, closed note. Very different from the notes and sample exam. After the midterm, 13 students dropped the class out of 22 students.

Business stats II : Take it with another teacher. The topics aren't that hard if you self teach yourself but this teacher is impossible to follow, does not grade on a curve even when half the class is failing, and just really doesn't seem to get it...

Teacher is very random...Would be an easy class if she knew how to teach...Makes frequent mistakes, expects way too much out of students...Homework is somewhat easy if you spend time outside of class teaching yourself. Tests are manageable but it is ridiculous that she is teaching a stats II class the way she teaches. Avoid if possible...

This professor is ABSOLUTELY terrible. This is partially not her fault, as her Chinese accent is soooo terrible and she can, unfortunately, do nothing about it - except maybe talk slower. Switches from slide to slide, monotonous, and states the obvious, instead of explaining what's actually written on the slides
