ITD 256 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

I would not recommend taking this class online. It is a hard class that needs a physical instructor to explain stuff to you about databases. I learnt absolutely nothing and the professor gave exams that were completely out of the study guides and this professor makes this class even tougher. he is a easy grader. but I wouldn't recommend this online

Shah was kind of thrown into our class in the middle of the semester, but he was awesome. Really wanted the class to succeed, is a bit hard to follow sometimes, but he was a really nice guy.

ITE 115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Probably one of the rudest professors i've had. Teaching is unclear and is not very helpful at all. Overuses power point and never really helps when it is asked for. Would not recommend if your trying to keep your GPA up .

He is a great professor, gives study guides for exams that are exactly what you need to know. He gives great feedback and allows you to resubmit corrected work to get points back on assignments. Would definitely take another class with him in the future.

Professor Shah is a humble, funny, and intelligent guy! He gives out a study guide prior to exams. Keeps class interesting and entertaining. He taught me so much more than IT. You'd be lucky to have him as a professor!

Mr. Shah is an amazing teacher. I have never met anybody who knows what they are talking about! Very knowledgeable, interesting and actually wants his students to do better not only in class but outside as well. If you ever think about taking ITE 115 take his class you won't regret it and if u haven't decided what to major in this class will!

Amazing professor. He will always entertain questions. Enthusiastic about the course. Very considerate. Tests are okay, but you have to read and use the study guide to get an A. I actually enjoyed his class. Always participate and answer questions. He is professional but he is also funny. Definitely take him!

Prof Shah is one of the most passionate teachers in the entire world, he is very knowledgeable with what is he teaching and a very nice person when I say nice I mean like extraordinary nice but he requires lots and lots of work. If u love computer u definitely should take his class if not then don't bother. He gives lots of chances though.

Prof. Shah is very motivated and knowledgeable. He's constantly trying to make the subject interesting, even for those who aren't interested in technology. If you pay attention in class and follow his exam study guides, there is no reason for you to fail this class. There are a few MsO projects and exams, on top of lecture exams.

Great Professor! He's always willing to help students whether it's in class or by e-mails. Exams are very easy if you look over the study guide, including the Midterm and Final. Would definitely recommend to take his class!
