Professor is blunt. Not much work on this class, but must do well on midterm. 1 Midterm, 1 Journal (random check in class), 1 individual presentation, and 1 oral group presentation. I honestly, did not learn much in this class. It is more of a class discussion throughout the lecture. Attendance is mandatory.

Dev is a cool guy. The class is easy going, he works with students on due dates. You learn the material. However, dev likes to ramble. Some days you sign in and he will pick a topic which is more of a current event than part of the curriculum and ramble about it for an hour. His midterm and final had questions completely unrelated to the material.

Easy class. Learned absolutely nothing. Boring at times, funny at times. 1 individual project, 1 group project, 1 midterm, and 1 final. Has a sign in sheet before class everyday.

Okay... Here is the low down. He is a cool guy and he knows a lot about his subjects. He may be unorganized at times (pushing due dates back, grading tests/assignments on time and scheduling tests) but it really isn't THAT bad. He makes it enjoyable, and he comes from the "real world" not from academia. So he is super down to earth. I recommend!

Dont get me wrong, this is a really funny class. But thats all it is. There isnt any real lecture plan, teacher mostly rambles on for a good hour or so. Midterm was a joke, we had questions about what to do when we see homeless people. I spend most of my time in class just tripping out about how I ended up here. I dont know man, this class is weird

This class is extremely easy and Hilarious. You're guaranteed a laugh every lesson and he keeps it real. An excellent class to get an upper GE requirement out the way. Also makes you appreciate the environment more.

Great class to learn CEQA. Not exactly the most interesting class, even for environmentalists, but you learn the process. Dev can be easy to work with and he helps you out as long as you act like an adult and do whats assigned. Overall, easy class... Final was a pain tho, worst part of the class, even though it was a take home final.

Dev is by far the greatest professor I have had in my college career. He is passionate about the subject matter, which in turn makes you excited to learn the material. He is well organized and extremely understanding. He provides not only education direction but often offers advice on career searching. He is encouraging and fair. Love him!

I took Dev this last semester for the second time and for two classes. He is one of the most important assets that CSUN's URBS Dept. has. He teaches in a real world context and you can learn a lot if that is your objective. He says that he did not receive your work to save you face, however he is very organized. Do yourself a favor and take one cla

He is pretty easy, just make sure you go to class to avoid getting points off for attendance. He lets you know what it is to be a planner from the real world perspective. Interesting and easy, take him

Has no business teaching. I went into that class understanding things that became unclear to me. He is painfully unorganized and clearly has no idea what he is doing. We never even finished the class project.

easy class, professor is not clear on task given and pop up with extra work that he expects you to know how to do, but he never explains or go over the work in the first place. professor is sometimes boring and confusing, but he knows the CEQA process very well.
