Dr. Gau's class was real easy. I took him in the summer and there were 3 tests and no homework. Attendance was not mandatory but he gave extra credit to those who went to class. At final he pretty much asked what grade you needed in the class (considering your 1st two tests) Study and do the practice problems and you will be fine! Take Him!

Don't be intimidated by the heavy accent. Go to class every day, he gave us extra credit almost every day. He genuinely wants you to do well and will help you a lot if you go to office hours. I am terrible at math and got an A- in this class. I would definitely recommend you take Dr. Gau.

Sta2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Come to class!!! He is big on rewarding class attendance. His test questions come directly from his notes. If you have questions, make an appointment to see him. He is very nice and approachable and does not mind helping at all. I definitely recommend him. However, do not buy the book (waste of money).

This guy is average. I dislike his teaching style and also his expectations. He brings whole bunch of slides in the class and only sends some to the students. so you dont know how to follow the lecture. First test was from stat methods 2. Second test was very unclear and poorly organized. I didn't really know what to study for it. Book hardly helps

This class was pretty easy, but only because I went to every class. If you don't you'll be lost because he doesn't use the book except for homework problems. His formulas are different than the ones in the book so go to class and you'll be fine. The tests aren't multiple choice but that's good because he gives partial credit (and pretty liberally).

Good teacher. The tests are not multiple choice and are a bit difficult. Take good notes, but will give you a very thorough study guide. Very nice guy and willing to help you outside of class. As far as the accent goes....lets just say his engrish is a but tough to understand at times.

This professor is so much better than people are making him sound. If you go to class and take notes you wont even need the book. The test come straight from the notes. With the extra credit it is impossible to get less than a B. I got an A with doing very little. Excellent Professor!

Awesome professor. You can tell that he wants people to do well in his class. He's good at explaining things in a simple way. Exam questions come from his notes. I would recommend him!

Excellent professor who cleary explains all the concepts at hand. He gives plenty of examples. Exams are taken directly from the lectures and he informs everyone of exactly what will be on the exam, often times recycling examples from the lectures to use as questions.

DO NOT take him. The tests have nothing to do with the HW. Also, he only gives 5 questions on each test. Very hard to get a decent grade.
