sTATS 251 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+
"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Lee is very hard to understand, but once you get used to his accent it's all going to class and doing your homework. There's assistance in the library that's very helpful. If you do the homework and actually understand it, it's an easy A on the following test.

Stats 251 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

He really knows his stuff about statistics and cares but his stats 251 class has been the worst class ever. He is hard to understand some times and goes all over the place during lecture. The stats center is always full of people who could not follow him in class. I end up reading and teaching myself for every homework. NOT FUN. So hard.

stat251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His accent is absolutely awful. My friends and I could understand maybe one out of every five words he said. His teaching style is confusing and convoluted. He offers no help after class and the text book is little better.

Stat251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He hs an accent, but it only takes a couple of days to get used to it. He's very helpful in class, if you ask a question about a problem he will go over it and explain it. The quizzes he gave were open note too, which made them really easy.

stat150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easy to understand, once you acclimate to his accent. He's enthusiastic and explains concepts well. I also took Stat 251 from Dr. Lee, because I thought he was such a great teacher.

Stats251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Awful teacher. Extremely difficult to understand through his thick accent. Not only is his accent hard to understand, but also irritating to the listener. Often times will randomly start shouting during a sentence (possible cuz he doesnt know which words to emphasize and which not to). Could not stand going to class. It was borderline unbearable!

STAT251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. Stats is not hard if you go to tutoring and just read the textbook alot. Lee does have an accent but within a few days you will be able to completely understand his engrish. For an asian man, he can be fkin hilarious at time, especially when he gets excited about statistics. Final is hard, not if you prepare though.

Stats. 251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Stat's is a hard class with anyone, it's almost like another language... it doesn't really help when the prof (and the TA in my case) have thick Chinese accents. I spent a lot of time in the Sats. Assistance Center. Don't get me wrong, Prof Lee is really nice guy, but as far a prof try to get someone else.

STAT301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Uh, it's statistics. It's _boring_ and _dry_ with _anyone_ that teaches it. Deal with it. Not the most interesting instructor in the world, but he teaches what needs to be taught and makes sure you know the concepts behind statistics on the test. I'm not sure what anyone else expects from the class.

This is a nice man. He clearly knows math well and is interested in helping. He just isn't very good. Clear as mud.

This guy was a HORRIBLE teacher! He is extremely hard to understand, and most of my class ended up right on the edge of failing, or failing. I highly recommend avoiding this professor at all costs!

STAT 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

This teacher treated the class as though we were in middle school. I was instantly reminded of my fifth grade year when we were told that absences required a note (aren't most of us legal adults?) and no food/drink was allowed. Class taught me nothi

Course was tough, prof in a hurry, but allows extensive review sheet for exams, and supplies all the tools for student success.

Seems too easy; not clear, but grades look good, then hammers you on the final!
