Professor Das is an amazing professor. One of the very few who actually cares about students. He asks us what type of exam format we want, whether we have outside responsibilities that may affect our learning. He is so helpful, kind, funny, humble. Love him!

GEOG3370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was the best geography course I took at York. Prof Das was an excellent lecturer, although slightly disorganized, and overall seemed like a genuine, decent human being. He ran the class democratically by asking students to decide on the format of the exams, and was also willing to reevaluate mine, which were clearly marked wrong by the TA

I LOVE Raju Das!!! He explains everything well and he makes a point of repeating things that will appear on exams. He really wants his students to succeed. If you are able to take a course with him - don't hesitate!!

Be aware of his tests, for his short answers he expects you to memorize the whole textbook to get a good mark on them.

Great prof! He always asks right before class if his students are experiencing any difficulties and even asks everyone what type of exam format they would prefer. Great, interesting, and easy course, highly recommended!

Not a great Prof! He is nice to talk to but he is horrible when it comes to marking. His lectures were unorganized. He is very repetitive. His lectures slides are pointless. If you want to do well in his class you have to go to the lectures.

HORRIBLE! lectures are sooo boring... its a chore to even go... We are not little kids... doesnt really say anything in lecture, stands there staring at us waiting for us to participate, and when we dont he re-repeats EVERYTHING he has said... WE UNDERSTAND... its self-explanatory!! i feel bad, cuz he seems like a nice guy, but should not be a prof

I am convinced he has an obsession with cow poo-poo. Lectures were a little slow. I'd say an average professor, not the greatest but not the worst.

GEOG 1410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Good Prof, lectures are really clear, although his thought process couldn't be called linear on his best days. Test questions are pretty much straight from lecture, and since he repeats himself 9 or 10 times, it's pretty easy to do well.

Very nice, funny guy, however i do agree his lectures are all over the place. Always jumping from slide to slide make it very difficult to take notes. Interesting lectures, but very unorganized.. tries to get the class involved, but doesnt really work and just wastes time. Better if he was straight forward

very easy class. He makes good points although he is a borderline communist. If you want any easy class, take this one.
