Prob02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really good teacher. Gives interesting examples in class applicable to the sciences and engineering and great notes. Clearly states expectations for the exams. Even though some questions on the exam are theoretical but all the proofs are in his notes.

Stats111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lectures quickly...do not attempt to listen and understand...just take notes and review them Approachable BUT not accessable. Absent entire week of Passover however felt it was fine to "substitute" office hours prior to exam on Easter Sunday at 10am as only "makeup" time available!

STATS1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This guy is a ****ing idiot. He spends an hour rambling about some theorem that we will never see on the test, or ever again in the real world, and neglects the material for the test. If you have this guy, prepare to learn entirely from your TA and the book, they are your only resources in this class.

Very helpful, lectures so well all you really need to do is attend class. Even though the class required you do the work, if you did that basically meant a good grade.

Graph Theory Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Cool guy. He's fair and considerate and, at least for me, made an unbearably boring subject almost interesting. I was impressed. He also displays a pretty good sense of humor when he wants to.

Stats 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This professor is really nice and likes to make jokes, but statistics sucks all the same and there are always a few "surprise" questions on the exams you couldn't have seen coming.

While the subject was somewhat unimpressive the lecture was extremely helpful though tests could be a bit harder than was necessary for the class level.

Graph theory is very hard, and although fishkind liked the material and was very nice, the class was still very difficult.

EN 550.112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Fishkind is a very nice guy. He is very caring of the students and will fit tests to their convenience. His class (or at least the one that I took) was very boring. Each class essentially consisted of going over one problem taken directly from the book
