COMP201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Literally one of the meanest professors I've ever had the pleasure of learning from. Never a dull moment in this class as he was constantly insulting people who didn't know the answers, lol! Created quite an incentive for studying and something about his demeanor said "it's all in fun" even though I'm not quite sure it was... Favorite prof ever.

CSC100-400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Old, gruff, ex-military, irritable, and somewhat intimidating. His classes are generally tough and he rarely shows any mercy. If you have a problem and ask him for help, he will help you but will more than likely laugh at you first. As far as computer science goes, he knows the stuff he teaches and if you make an A in his class (which is possible), you earned it.

MTH 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Byler assigned us the first 5 chapters of the textbook (350+ pages) over Christmas vacation. MY vacation. I got an A because he had to put a +20% curve on every exam or else most people would fail. The class exam average was about a 55%. Sometimes he spoke in German and expected us to learn the phrases he used. Plus, NO calculators.
