I'll be honest, he is a nice guy but a very bad professor. If i had a time machine i would go back in time and stop myself from taking his class. I'm an A student but no matter how much i studied (i studied for his class more than i did for organic chemistry)i wasn't even able to get a B. DOnt take Him unless you really want to have a long semester

He is a difficult teacher, I would only suggest taking him if you have taken stats in high school. The quizzes he gives are a little pointless, especially when he misses the previous class and still gives you a quiz with no explanation of the materials. Consistently shows up the class late which shows a general disrespect for students' time.

Please, save yourself. Don't take this class. Problems on the board are wrong 50% of the time. Tests are ridiculous, there will be at least 1 question on every test that you have never seen before. Hopefully he will retire soon.

HARD TEACHER! both my mother and brother took him and dropped out. I stayed in, bad idea. He gives pointless homework problems that don't relate to his tests. Gives daily quizzes which I find very pointless and hard.

I study daily for this class and I study for at least 10 hours before a test and I am still doing poor. His tests are killer and he often cuts problems short because he is to lazy to do them while telling the class, "you know how to do the rest"

the maple/calc lab is the most useless class I've ever taken, and he doesn't make it any better. most of the problems he gives us he doesn't teach us how to do, and sometimes what he teaches us only works with the older version of the program. it's only 1 unit so it doesn't matter much, but don't take him for math 144!!!!!

DON'T TAKE HIM!!! He's not a bad guy and tries to help out, but he tests on stuff that he really hasn't taught and even marks off on your work no matter if your answers are right or not. On one of our tests only one person out of both classes could answer one of the questions (10% of the test). Just don't take him.

When is plnu gonna give him the boot? He was horrible. He doesnt help you. 50% of the problems he solves on the board are wrong. Tests he makes up are from another planet. Dont ever take him

This professor was pretty bad. Honestly, he rarely gave examples in class during his lectures and his tests came from no where. I am a good student and I always felt like I was sinking. He's pretty useless...I recommend taking ANY other professor than him for Statistics.

This Professor is completely useless. He's nice but will not teach you a thing. He hands out the lab requirement and then just sits at his desk while the whole class tries to teach themselves Calc lab. Then he will give you a midterm on stuff that has never before been assigned nor taught. They really need to not require this class anymore.

Intro to computers, how hard can it be? Good guy, the days in the classroom he would either not come or let us leave mad early. The work was super easy just really long and boring. If you dont know how computers work by now there is something wrong.

Horrible teacher, this is a completely self-taught class. He makes mistakes all the time that he never sees, students must point them out. Actually had a student stand up and teach the class for 5 minutes on a subject that Sickler couldn't get across. It's a good thing stats isn't that hard.

Very random grading policy. Is notorious for making errors when explaining problems. His tests are not well representative of the covered material. His quizzes and homework do make things easier, but three tests make up 75% of your total grade. Harder than it would be with a different prof.

stats is a hard subject and professor sickler is the only teacher at pt. loma that makes it the easiest possible. he has daily quizzes and review guides for exams. there is also daily homework. its busy work but it is well worth it because it helps your grade at the end. choose him you wont regret i

Dr. Sickler is a man who knows what he's talking about! His assignments are all designed to help understand the material, his quizzes are fair, and he is always willing to answer questions on concepts after class. A really great guy!

Very hard and doesn't explain concepts very well. His grading is sporadic and not very fair. One of my worst classes.
