This guy is very knowledgeable in his field. If you don't understand something he will work with you until you do - very patient. He's a tough but fair grader. Will deduct points for the littlest thing but you know not to miss the same thing twice. He is also very quick at responding to questions. Would definitely recommend this professor!

Very smart guy, and his 400 level courses are very hard. Maybe it's the subjects, maybe it's him. Maybe it's both. I don't know. However, he is more than willing to help. Each week he puts up flash presentations with diagrams to help explain the subject. Would be absolutely incredible to have him face-to-face as opposed to on line.

This guy has a harsh grading policy which borders on unfair. The explanations for the grades he gives you are vague. Not a bad instructor, just difficult for an online medium. Unless you feel very secure with your knowledge of programming take with caution. You have been warned.

Be prepared to work. Responsive on-line professor, but often answered with leading questions rather than an explanation. Assignments were gradually revealed on-line and often had multiple parts, which made them harder to do correctly. Grading is hard, but offers extra credit.

A class act. Jarc clearly loves what he is teaching about and goes the extra to mile to make sure everyone understands. His visual tools are great. He doesn't try to hide the why's and how's behind everything - which might confuse people having a hard time.

Jarc brings a strong Math background to the class, but the explanations are very clear. His 452 is one of the best courses in the UMUC Computer Science curriculum.

In my opinion, this professor's class was good but his final had several things on it that should have have been on the final. Overall, I feel his class was unfulfilling and certainly not worth the money I paid the school.

I love this professor. I took his online class. He is willing to teach you over the phone and in person as long as you want, he tries to help you. He is very responsible, and knowledgable about programming. I recently saw his book just came out about Java, very interested to buy, too. I think he is a great teacher. He is highly recommended.

Very knowlegable. I took his class online and was disappointed at the lack of examples. This made things difficult. However, he was always very willing to help if you asked.

Dry sense of humor, which made things fun. Also very good at explaining things in class.

If online, contribute to the discussions!! Very picky about the programming projects - read thru forums until the last day to make sure you've got everything right. Late with grading, which makes later projects hard.

Amazing teacher. I have never learned so much in a computer class. He is very intelligent, and willing to explain things several times for clarification. Highly Recommended!
