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!!

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!!!!

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!

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.

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.

Took class Spring '10 and received an A. You must review the manual thoroughly and if you listen to his recorded lectures you should be able to obtain an A.

I would not recommend this professor to my worst enemy. He is abrasive and unprofessional. He told me that I earned my BBA from a TX AM University that robbed me of my money and did not teach me anything. He denied these comments to the department chair when I reported him.

The worst professor I have had in over 180 hours of college classes. He writes his own book (you must buy), which is terrible. The organization of the book is very difficult to follow. I reverted back to my undergrad Stats books... He does not effectively respond to questions. You basically buy the book, read the book, and take the test...

I took him last semester, he is very arrogant and self centered, he was always late to class and did not value the students time. He also made his GA's pretty much do everything, its like they were at his feet for everything from even grabbing his Pepsi. He really has an attitude problem with no people skills. I would not recommend him at all.

As what others have already said, Prof Arize doesn't teach, at least not in his online class. I realize this is a graduate class that I took, but that doesn't mean that I am not paying the University for someone to teach me Business Statistics. If you can, choose someone else, or buy a good stats book and teach yourself.

This was the most frustrating and complicated classes I've ever taken. Worthless syllabus and prof adds assignments last minute. The class notes are not useful for Online class and are completely incomprehensible. Test scores/answers go into black whole. Prof. give no respect and treats them like HS students. Tests took insane hours to do complete.

I got an A, but this guy is horrible. Throw the syllabus out the window, it's useless. He is a hypocrite and reverses himself constantly. He'd rather talk about football than help anyone. He will not tell you what you did wrong on exams, or help you at all. I had 2 stat classes as an undergrad, so this class was largely remedial to me.

Total idiot! Truly! Has NO respect for students, NONE! MAKES you purchase this piece of crap book that he wrote (not even a real text, he is forcing us to buy something he can't get published). Does not want to give feedback on results, grades stupidly (you end up with a grade like 87.82- wtf). Trust me, seek another professor if at all possible.

Dr. Arize was a pretty good teaching in my opinion. Before taking the class, I had very little experience with Bus. Statistics, but after the class I had a very good understanding of what they can do for me in the future. Now in grad school, his teaching methods as well as understanding of the subject, really helped me accel in my MBA degree.
