Found the class to be straightforward, exams were likewise, fairly easy. Course focused more on slides rather than book material. Good professor, entertaining, would def. take a class w/ him again.

He is a good professor, but his exams and quizzes are extremely tricky, and sometimes, even him gets confused with the questions.

Should try harder to teach the classes and add more material. Half of every class contained a summary of the last one.

C++ for eng. Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His grading system is horrible!!! The tests are usually arbitrary and aren't really fair. It's hard to test knowledge of C++ without using a computer. His final was confusing, but he was an ok teacher, i learned a lot. The final project is also horrible, most ppl probabally spent 72+hours on it.
