Great professor. Manages the classroom well when we do group activities. Answers questions okay via email, but great in class.

Bresnahan is the TA for the class and thus teaches the discussion, although he never teaches anything useful or even reviews the online lectures... but he and Tolan grade similarly so dont be stressed. I surprisingly got an A in all my classes but this, so I suggest going to office hours and get him to like and help you- also for the group proj.s!

Chris is a good teacher and a nice guy. The class has a lot of busy work but isn't particularly hard.

Chris is amazing! He has a good sense of communication and knows what his students want. Go once or twice to the office hours and you will not have a problem. He's fun but, he means business though

Nice man with a good interest in the course. Go to office hours, as he helps you understand the information if you have question.

3 exams that are progressively worth more. assignments due every other week. discussions are interesting, he's funny, know his material and wants his students to excel and learn. the exams are from online lectures and you just have to memorize the slides. overall great guy I highly recommend him.

Chris is a great, energetic and funny professor. I really enjoyed this class - his discussions are interesting and the work in the ELC is fun. The homework is easy, I got full marks on all. I only went to his discussions (I went to 1 lecture the whole semester) and I still got an A. In the exams you just need to apply a lot of terms!

Bresnahan articulates course topics in clear, concise fashion. Has students work in groups in many of the discussion sections, that and going to the ELC for simulations. Course isn't very difficult in content, but in order to get a good grade you need to demonstrate mastery. Participate a lot, as it helps your grade - to see if you deserve a 'bump'

Energetic teacher who makes the somewhat bland information come to real life with examples. Memorizing everything is how you get a good grade in this class. The concepts are cool and I learned a lot about myself, but this class takes basic ideas and turns them into overcomplicated theories that made me furious. Average class overall

This class was really difficult overall, and not that well structured. Chris helps you get through it all, even if it is a pain. He is entertaining, open to meeting and will talk you to death during office hours. Work hard and you should do well. Excellent experience with him. Meh course...

He is pretty "straight forward" and isn't that hard. Memorize every word on every slide and you'll do ok, but DON'T try to wing it. Just memorize and review the book and you should get a B or higher!

Here's his test policy (which will give you an indication of tardness): if you have a test that was graded wrong (even blatantly) and you bring it to him he will regrade the entire test and check for mistakes that went in your favor or against. Sounds like someone has a problem with not being right (and logic)

class was much harder than I expected, you don't do a whole lot in terms of work and lectures don't seem too in depth but the exams are very difficult because you need to have everything memorized...and i mean everything

Bresnahan is probably the best professor to take this class with. He is understanding and a nice guy. He says he grades easy, but he really doesn't, especially on exams. The class is extremely difficult unless you spend countless hours memorizing. There is almost no way people do well in this class without cheating.

very funny and straight to the point. Although the exams are hard, it is hard for everyone, you just gotta memorize a lot. If people don't think he is fair, you should really complain to the people who cheat on every exam in this class.

overall, i'd rate him poor. picks on favorites, is NOT AT ALL a fair marker (especially for short essays.. he claims to be a generous marker but deducted points easily & unreasonably. messed up grade calculation (needs some clarity (ex) since you got 800/1000 u r gna get a B) (he just goes, B there A there so you get a B+)
