Took many classes from this man. He inspired me to become a teacher like him. Learned so much, changed my life. One of those teachers you never forget.

Although he only teaches online now, he is a great teacher that knows his stuff and is very helpful. I went through 3+ semesters with him with an A every time. I'm glad I was able to finish my programming classes with him.

CIS 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had to drop this class last semester because of family problems but am taking it again. Professor Townsend is very nice, helpful, and always answers questions clearly so they are understood. He seems to really want to see his students succeed and goes the extra mile as a teacher to do so. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

Very straightforward class and prof. Won't make you jump through hoops in class or assignments. Students must be very detail oriented, though.

Great Professor. Very patient. He is always there to answer questions and replies to email quickly. Very helpful and knowledgeable. This is the best online class I have ever taken. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to learn more about computers.

Very good professor with a sense of humor about his own imperfections as well as the lousy book that was used for the class (the book has changed since I took the class, though). He's going to retire, so take his class soon!

Took two classes in Java with Andy, the text book was written by an idiot! He was an excellent teacher, he really knows his stuff. I would take him again in a hart beat. I learned a lot.

great teacher for a hard class, he picked a really bad book for the class but hopefully he will have a new one soon, he also clears up most errors from the author, thanks!
