CS753 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice lady,wants to be helpful to a fault.Takes too much time answering questions below/not pertinent to course topics,causing the class to fall behind & her to rush thru the important stuff that needs explaining.Setting up the Oracle DW Environment is a mess.You need a 32 bit Windows machine or VM. Mostly DW concepts, not much data mining.

CS360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Void taking her class if you can, her class is super boring, everything you learn is totally useless and she does made her exam harder than it is. And she is bit “discriminate” too, just watch up for that.

CS360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Pretty easy professor. Exams are 60% term matching. UML assignments are pretty difficult but you can keep asking her for help. easy 3.3/3.7, no one gets a 4.0.

Professor Xu is such a big help and she really tries to make sure everyone is understanding the concepts. She is available all the time and will gladly go over assignments with you one on one. Tests are also fairly easy. Her drawback is that when she gets frustrated or rushed, her accent gets worse and it's hard to hear what she's saying.

Worthless, boring class. You can learn everything worthwhile in a few hours by yourself...which is a huge problem since this is an important CS class. Everyone in the class got a 3.3 or 3.7 - only one 4.0 out of ~35 kids. Take this class if you want a 3.3 with no work and no useful knowledge, but avoid Xu if you actually care about knowledge.

This prof is the best! She is so helpful, takes you through all the steps, if she goes too fast she slows down. She makes sure you do very very well. My favorite prof in Bentley! :):):)

Great teacher, everything is very structured and makes the class nice and easy. Tests aren't too bad if you make a good cheat sheet, which she allows. overall i'd take her again.

Excellent professor. Knows her stuff when it comes to databases. Assigned work is not excessive and helps you learn the material. Always in her office to help and responds to e-mails quickly. Cares about what the students think. Take her course if you can.
