"Respected by students" "Would take again" "Hilarious"

Pre-recorded lectures are very good. The class notes are crucial to passing the class. Additional stats book is not needed. Exams are take-home and take many hours, but they follow the class notes very closely. It's almost like being forced to work a bunch of homework and that's your exam. I learned more this way personally. Made an A. Good prof.

I read all the horrible reviews so I was concerned. Statistics is also a challenge for me so I was really concerned. However, do the assigned problems, thoroughly read the book and attend all lectures and you can get an A like I did. It's a graduate level class, its supposed to be challenging.

This professor has 0 communication with his students. He has "assistants" running the class. They send the emails for him and post grades. He does not teach at all. You are forced to purchase his book. If you don't, you fail the exams because he uses questions from his book on the exam.

Absolutely the worst professor I've ever had. He forces you to purchase his "book" by putting questions from it on the test. No contact. No teaching. He uses known methods, but renames them and calls them his own (see Q-Method). No wonder the other professor's course filled up so quickly. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS PROFESSOR!!

Terrible... This professor was no help, if you email him he rarely got back to you. The lectures were pointless, just bragging about himself and the book he wrote. Overall worst prof I've had at this school and graduating next month. AVOID HIM!

I took this class during the 2nd summer session. It wasn't too hard, but the professor was horrible - the worst professor I have had so far. He was not helpful at all and barely did any teaching. The class live sessions were pointless and inconsistent, as well as the class notebook he had us buy. If you can help it, please avoid his class!

This course demands that the student be very involved with the book put out by the instructor. If you do that, you will get a good grade. The only disagreement I have is that he will NOT return prior tests, papers so that you can learn by your mistakes. He did make the comprehensive to only cover the last five chapters so that was very helpful!

DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!!! I can't believe there are any positive remarks on here. You'll have to pay $130 for a 'textbook' he wrote, which is just a ream of copy paper littered with typos and inconsistencies. Plan to spend at least 12 hours on each of the exams and know that you won't see what you missed on the test. Absolutely terrible!!!!

Not worth it! You must teach yourself. Exam take an ENTIRE weekend to complete -- leaves no time for family or other classes. Project is given with no notice and given 3 days to complete.

I read most of the 150+ posts on this prof. Clearly the positives where written by his GAs. RUN FAR AWAY from this professor. Worst class experience ever!

Worst instructor ever. Incomprehensible style, irrelevant work. Be prepared to spend HOURS hand writing formulas. Excel is NOT permitted for most of the class. Terrible.

Worst instructor and class I have experienced. Simply terrible. The book is full of spelling format and grammar errors. The class is run by Grad Students who are still learning English. Terrible.

Very difficult, very time consuming, stressful. With that said, get a jump on the class and you can get an A. Gives extra credit and uses his own book, even to the point where some of the exam answers are directly from the book. However, take a break and you may never catch up. This was an online course! Very Difficult!!!!! Uses his own book

A very difficult class, got off to a slow start (my fault). Got a C on the mid-term. The final was very difficult and the formulas were different then what was in the book. He had two live classes that were difficult to understand and wondered al over the place. This is not a class to take during the summer perhaps over a longer it would be bette

What a waste of money! No "teaching", all "reading the book (self-published) and taking incredibly lengthy (12+ hr) tests". Asked for project to be returned before the end of the semester, so I could determine what my grade would be, and was denied. So, it will be a surprise! Might have been an interesting class if he actually taught it.

This professor does not grade, the assistants do all the work. You don't get the test back so you don't know what was wrong. Very difficult.

Worst professor ever. He gave extra credit for showing receipt for buying his textbook. Clearly only interested in the money. After looking through ratings I find it interesting that there are multiple ratings around the same times that have the same words misspelled and use language in the same manner. Are his assistants writing reviews? Run away.

Amazingly abysmal instructor. He may know the material, but he's useless if you're trying to learn it. Better suited to a consulting firm or anything that doesn't involve interaction with others. The textbook (written by him) is a joke for instructional purposes. It was little more than a self-study course.

Summer II Online '10 - Stay clear away from this guy. He failed to provide a grade for the final exam that took 3 days to finish. Nobody got a final test grade & no explanation for the reason. Poor communication. Teaching Assistant did all the grading & answered all questions. He uses his own written text, which is horribly written and costs $89.
