very hard to understand in class. there is only a correct textbook answer to questions. the grading scale is weighted very wrong, if your behind after the 1st test -- you should withdraw

Definitely not the greatest teacher here. The class was incredibly boring and he doesn't know how to answer questions. We almost always left the class late, because he droned on. The workbook was easy enough if you read the book. It's an easy A if you pay attention and can read/figure it out on your own, but don't expect him to help.

Assessment really isn't that bad as long as you go. The note outlines are all up on webct, just print 'em out and fill 'em in during class. The workbook is actually somewhat helpful when studying for the tests, as are the study guides also on webct. He's very helpful when it comes to the test construction project. Honestly try and you'll pass.

Difficult, but fair. Just read the book, go to class, take the quizzes and study for the test. He is very helpful if the effort is made to go see him, especially for the test construction project.

you have to be stupid to do poorly in this class. you get plenty of quizes to help you understand the material before the exam. just go to class. he's really nice and really understanding. if you skip you wont understand the information. so if you are a poor student that doesn't go to class don't even try to take Rattan

I think Dr. Rattan was very fair. His lectures were clear, and outlines of the notes were provided on WebCT. If you study, the tests are very fair; so are the frequent quizzes. Test Construction project is graded liberally, so that's a plus. He doesn't always seem to answer student questions clearly, but he tries.

Dr. Rattan expects us to be college level students. His tests aren't that hard if you read and study. He grades MORE than fair, and puts outlines of the notes on WebCT, so you don't spend your whole class writing. He's a good guy, and wears cool Hawaiian shirts. I really liked his class, he's always friendly and trying to make jokes.

Horrible class. Rattan himself is funny, but if you ask a question don't expect a reply that will make sense. His tests are crazy and don't even follow the guidelines he teaches. You will think you can skip but he KNOWS when you aren't there and will penalize you for it.

Teaches from the book completely boring.He confuses students more when you ask him questions.Its best to read the the chapter and do the workbook pages before class to have a complete understanding of the text.He doesn't let keep your quizzes although those questions are on the test.He sucks!!!!!!!!

I don't think he was that bad! His class is very difficult, but he is very fair. He is a very nice guy and he is pretty funny, notes are online, so you don't have to go to class if you think the is that boring. I wouldn't take him again but if you have to take him, he isn't that bad!

Overall a hard class no matter what. But Dr. Rattan does not help at all to make it easy. He talks in words that normal people don't understand, he says he grades easy, he does not! Tests are hard, notes suck and overall it's confusing, take someone else if possible!

He is one of the worst professors I've had. He acts like he knows so much more than everyone else, yet he has no idea how to explain anything to us. If you ask him a question, he doesn't know how to answer, he will just give you more text book answers that don't help. Don't take him!!

DO NOT TAKE HIM!! I haven't even finished this semester yet, and I've come to the conclusion that he CAN'T TEACH!! His lectures are unclear, he mumbles when he talks, when he talks he sounds like a human text book and not a person. Again, DO NOT TAKE HIM!
