This class was really hard! Jere explains stuff very quickly and expects you to know every detail. The midterm and final were insane. There is also a lot of busy work and the class overall was a lot harder than it should have been.

To be successful in this class do this: 1. Go every Thursday for the quizes he gives out (he lets you bring in notes for it) 2. Do POSIM well, go into his office and have him help you... he will 3. For tests go into the TA (Brian) a lot more clear and helpful than Jere for test stuff 4. READ THE GOAL, interesting and will help your grade a lot

Jere is a great guy to talk to, but not the best teacher. He knows his subject and is amazing with excel. He does leave you to figure things out for yourself and I felt that not all of the directions were clear. Pick a good POSIM group because that can make or break your grade. Luckily he curves.

VERY hard class. Jere tells you to do something, then leaves it up to you to figure it out. He is helpful in his office hours and gives students his cell number. You will spend countless hours on POSIM, but you will learn a lot about Operations and excel by the end of the quarter. recommended!

Hawn wants you to struggle so you learn, and you will work about 20 hours a week on the POSIM if you want a decent grade for about three or four weeks. Despite his completely unclear teaching style (in class he was very spastic and went very quickly through topics) he was more than willing to answer our (literally) twenty phone calls a day.

If you want to learn Operations Management, take Jere. If you don't really care about learning the material, and would rather get an easy A, take another teacher. Jere makes you work, and you must understand everything in order to do well. Personally I would recommend Jere versus getting slighted by an easier teacher.

Wow, I am suprized about what high scores this guy has recieved. I based taking this class on user reviews, and I wish I hadn't. I ended up with a D+ and it was basically because I had a terrible group for POSIM. This is not an easy, or a fun class, but you should probably be fine if your group dosen't suck. Good luck, I wouldn't recommend Jere.

OPS360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I hated this class and this guy. He wanted to meet me and my group (3 girls)downtown one night because we had some questions about POSIM and he didn't want to make the effort to come to the school... It was extremely weird and I've never had a professor want to meet downtown at night in order to go over a COMPUTER project.

i could not stand jere, he is so full of himself and just loves hearing himself talk. class involves him talking about how successful in life he has been, how dumb everyone else is, and a little bit of him showing off in excel. yes u can get a good grade, but the guys a real jerk in my opinion.

this class definately has you work but hawn is great. he'll crack jokes in class which can be funny- i enjoyed going even though it was early. quizzes are pretty much vocab. midterm is hard- study everything. class averages aren't high but he curves. i definately recommend this class if you like to be challenged

fast lecturer but its all slides that are posted online. grades are always posted on his website and your graded against your class. actually a nice guy and helpful. posim was pretty easy once you make the spreadsheet (just dont miss a move). read the goal and the quiz is an easy A. quizzes are impossible so dont even try. very useful class

The class isn't that hard, it's just that nothing is really explained and its very fast paced (I took the condensed summer quarter). Challenging tests - but no surprises. Stay on top of the POSIM!! I lost out on 10% of my final grade because we (my group and I) were late turning in two of the moves.

Do not take HAWN!!! He is the worst teacher ever. He goes through lectures really fast, and expect us to memorized everything. His tests are extremely hard and he doesn't care if u fail. Take HUA, way better teacher.

SO hard, but he's also extremely helpful. No matter when you call, he'll make time to help you. I called him at midnight on a Friday, and he walked me through the hw. If you make an effort to get help, it's worth it, and he will be more gracious with participation points. Don't freak out about low scores; he curves INSANELY.

This is one of the hardest class I've even taken in my life and he said that next quarters class will be harder, so I'm glad I took this class when I did. Lectures are very fast paced. He isn't very clear as to what is tested on quizes so you should read it very carefully. Tests are straight from the lectures material so study the notes in class.

Ok, he's helpful, thank god cause he needs to be if anyone will pass his class. He goes through his powerpoint so quickly everyone stares at him with a blank when he is teaching. He does excel examples in class, but he does them so quickly that it is impossible to follow what he is doing and you can't even write the directions down.

TOUGH class but he's a great prof - clear in what he wants you to do and will always be ready to help you outside of class - answers his cell at all hours to give you help on homework/studying. Tests are practical - know how to actually DO the concepts he teaches.

Jere is a hard teacher if you don't pay attention in lecutre, but he is fair in all that he does. If you focus and take the time to soak in what he's telling you it is extremely helpful in the workforce. KNOW EXCEL - or find someone that does it's really important for this class & if you have a laptop take it to class to try and copy his examples
