Prof Lord really knows STAT and you can tell he's a smart guy, but he has no clue how to convey the info to students. He is so likable and tries his best, but not a very good instructor. His class is set up to be open note tests up until the final exam, which is nice until you get to the exam and realize you learned nothing.

Hard class..point deductions don't seem to make sense. Spent 4-6+ hrs each week on homework. Bruce was quick to answer questions.

Stat 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Only 22 questions decide 40% overall grades. I strived for the whole semester and my grade fell from A to B because of 2 tricky questions on final. That's terrible.

STAT 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: D+

This was the worst class I've ever taken, and I'm a science major that has taken many chemistry classes. He is HORRIBLE.

He loves to use Minitab, so if you are able to use computer programs rather than figure it out using pen and paper, its really easy. The final doesn't allow you to use the program but it's easy. He's a really nice guy too that will help if asked.

STAT 480 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Terrible instructor. very confusing. Btw, remember that in HW10 Q2, the answer key has an error. you should delete the line "define Type /group". Also, remember to use UNIQUE libname, format name, order of code, comment language as much as you can. He will accuse you academic integrity violation as long as your answer shows a minor similarity.

STAT 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Horrendous teaching. He has no organized lecture. His lectures revolve around Minitab, a program that hardly anyone has on their PC. The class is called STATISTICS not MINITAB. His exams are pretty hard, because he only shows one question at a time, and once you click next, you cannot go back to the question. Entirely too hard for a 200 level class
