OKay rick wing was my favorite professor at sfsu. He comes off as a bit intimidating at the beginning of the semester. Because he is a very structured man. But he is probably the funniest and the most entertaining professor I have ever had. He will randomly tell you stories about his child hood. Just do you homework, and try to get to know him.

Very engaging and clear. Tells a ton of awkwardly funny jokes, and very helpful when it comes to having to miss class or change exam times.

He is really easy, just go to class, pay attention and actually try. It's all multiple choice

Took his summer course and it was intense. I've taken him for ds110, 210 and now 412. He knows his stats, and he is by far the most fair grader I've met at State. Although I couldn't keep up with the class when learning the new material, I left knowing the basics that let me understand the hw material. Three tests, book for hw required.

Avoid Prof. Wing! He spends class going over HW and telling his stories. You have to learn everything on your own time. HW every class and tests every week. Tests are tricky!! He just doesn't care about his students, I am an "A" student and I struggled with his Calc class to get a "C"

The class wasn't all that easy, but you can learn almost everything from doing the online homework. His lectures go by quickly, because sometimes he tells you his stories about his life. He doesn't explain very good, so you have to make sure you pay attention all the time. Got a B, from averaging a C+ on every test.

Be prepared to teach yourself everything. Tests are designed for teacher level of understanding so practice all the hard questions in the book. Work hard early in semester because the finals 3 tests will drop your grade.Test every week.

If you go to class you will be fine. All of his tests are multiple choice and he tells you what will be on the test and what will not. If you only do online homework and don't go to class there will be surprises on the test because he will sometimes teach extra things not included in the book. Overall a fairly straight forward class.

Avoid taking a class with Wing! He doesn't teach at all. His lectures are confusing, and he goes off topic telling random stories often. He says he "doesn't trick you" but then the test questions are much harder and different than the homework and textbook. To pass the class you will HAVE to teach yourself, with the textbook or other resources.

Worst math teacher I have ever had by far. He was very disorganized and not personable at all. The tests and homework were ridiculously hard and he was unwilling to help the students. He once made me make up a test at 7 am. I definitely do not recommend him.

Easy class, need the book to pass. Must follow with the chapters and do the online homework to understand. He is not good at explaining things in any other way than what he knows, and he gets very confusing at times. Just do the online HW, he gives chapter tests. No final, no midterms, easy A - just DO THE ONLINE HW!

When he says attendance is optional, he doesn't mention that you need to attend in order to answer tricky questions on the test. Likeable guy if you can get past his sarcastic exterior. Almost didn't pass because the final was a doozy and we weren't given much time.

Great teacher, he really wants you to understand the material and makes it pretty easy. Online homework and book are very simple, he grades tests quickly and the tests will be exactly like in-class problems. Nice guy too, likes to tell stories, etc. He makes business statistics a lot less scary than it sounds. Fair grader & willing to help you.

Professor was really easy. No midterms, no finals, just nothing but chapter quizzes. Homework is online. Mostly shows shortcuts on how to do problems. He may go off topic in the middle of explaining how to do a certain problem.

DO NOT take his class if you're not a genius at math. He skips steps and doesn't understand where or why students get lost in his lectures. He does not do extra credit and the homework done online is different than what he teaches and tests us on. Take a different teacher! Save yourself! More than 50% of students dropped. He has no mercy

Even after going to class literally every single day, I am barely going to pass with a C-. He doesn't teach, I learned everything I know from teaching myself through the online homework. A test on every chapter, but questions are nothing like the homework. His course is a joke.

He doesn't teach! He literally says, do this problem, and then sits down at a desk and doesn't even explain how he got the answer! I got in a argument with him today because I called him out on an equation he was doing wrong and he didn't believe me. Unless you're good at teaching yourself,save yourself a lot of trouble and time, and don't take him
