Stat 106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prepare to teach yourself. He spend the entire class conducting proofs leading to a formula. Does not show you how to use it. Does not use practical enough examples. This class was miserable

STAT 106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I for one enjoyed his class and would gladly take another from him. His lectures were understandable even with his accent and the handouts, while long, were extremely helpful. Office hours were good too as he always answered my questions.

STA 106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

What was really what made this class enjoyable for me was that I knew exactly what was expected of me at all times. Lecture notes were clear, textbook was useful, and, most importantly, practice tests were representative of the exams, as was the homework. Thus, the more work you did, the better grade you got. Plus, he's a really nice guy.

Terrible! Impossible to follow lectures, had to rely on the book and handouts to even attempt the homework. I would highly recommend waiting to take this class when a different professor is teaching it.

STA106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Impossible to understand and follow his lectures. Probably one of the worst professors i've had during my college career. However, the handout notes as well as the ones he writes on the board are helpful and the tests weren't too bad. Would NOT recommend taking this course overall!!

You do not need to go to class. He is impossible to understand, and it has less to do with his accent and more to do with his talking into the board. I never went to section. Practice midterms/final are very accurate & you get note sheets. I spent ~2 hours making my final note sheet and got an 85. You'll need to teach yourself, do the homework.

STA13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Other STA13 students with different profs have reported that the class was boring but a cinch. I must have been a loser in the registrastion lottery, then, because I sturggled immensely. I hate getting anything less than an A and can usually make myself care, but this prof never gave sufficient examples, nor did he explain himself clearly.

Pretty easy class you could probably do pretty good in just by reading the first 10 chapters of the book, professor did a decent job explaining things, heavy indian/english accent but still understandable
