Really passionate about Stat. Takes simple concepts and makes them much harder than necessary. Class is *extremely* labor intensive. 10+ hrs of homework a week, take-home test took 25+. Close to half the section dropped. Helpful outside of class, but can be a bit stuck up.

He is the hardest professor I have ever taken but I've learned more in the 3 classes I have had him for than any of my other classes combined. If you attend this university because you actually have a desire to learn, take him. It will take a lot of work but you'll be thankful later

Dr. Tebbs is just plain awesome. He does pile on the work, but the fact is that his notes are so good and he covers them so well in lecture that you'll find yourself learning when you don't even realize it. Strongly recommend him if you have the option, and I hope to have more classes with him in the future.

Best Stat Professor! I would take any class he is teaching, as long as I haven't taken it before. Makes his own class notes that you can get from his website that are extremely helpful, you wouldn't even need the book if there weren't hw problems in it. His classes are not easy, but you will completely understand the material afterwards.

He is the most disrespectful professor I have ever had. He is stuck up and requires a lot of work for his classes. If you can avoid taking a class when Tebbs is teaching it, do it.

Pretty much copies notes from Books. Useless lectures, boring and takes himself too seriously. I learned nothing from his lectures. Don't take this class unless you can not learn on your own from books.

Professor Tebbs does a great job teaching the material for his class, but he does require you to take the time to do your homework. If you keep up with the homework assignments, and ask him for help if you have problems with them you will be fine. If you aren't capable of doing a weekly homework, don't bother taking his class.

Demanding professor, but he helps alot during office hours. HW assignments every week and gives extra credit. Tests are easier than HW. Good guy he is excited about teaching.

Lets class out late at least 5-10 minutes every time, has no respect for students time. Does not do his own homeworks before assigning, so there are often mistakes or he is unable to help with solving them. Tests often do not reflect primary concepts from the course. His notes are understandable, and he does an ok job at explaining them.

I'm awful at math (especially stat), but he made it easy to understand. A lot of material to cover, but fairly straight forward. Tests are simple. He offers plenty of help.

One of the hardest classes I have taken, but one of the best, hardest-working professors. Tebbs makes an impossible subject doable, but you have to do an enormous amount of work outside of class. The entertaining "stories" about when he was a student are few and far between.

This teacher is really different from a lot of teachers that I have had. His questions are not "plug'n'chug" which makes the class more challenging. But, I think that in the end I got a lot more out of this class than I ever have gotten from a statistics class. I enjoyed it.

Dr. Tebbs is one of my favorite professors of my college career. He's not easy but he is very fair. His notes and homework will fully prepare you for tests. He is very helpful outside of class too. Overall he is a great teacher and I highly recommend him. I have no idea why people are saying Tebbs is full of himself.

I've never seen anyone as thoroughly prepared for class as Mr. Tebbs. He's got a dry sense of humor (high ego?), but is very excited about teaching. He gives quizzes for attendence, so make sure you go to class. His exams are MC and are alot like the practice exams. I thought I would hate this class, but it turned out to be an enjoyable experience.

While he has good intentions, Tebbs is not exactly the most effective teacher. For someone who comes off as incredibly full of himself, he should be more willing to improve his teaching methods. If by helpful you mean merely printing out the notes and simply reading through them, then I guess that would make him a good teacher.

He is very helpful! I even wrote a letter of recommendation for his tenure (which is up this comming summer). He provides notes and is willing to work problems over and over. Also, he gives a formula sheet on tests. Thus, you do not have to memorize all the formulas, but understand when to use them! Take him he is great!

Good teacher, although he does make many mistakes. You don't need to get the textbook because he has already typed all the notes you need for the course. Easy A

Great professor! Notes are online and are really easy to understand. The daily quizzes are easy but you have to go to class. Homework is graded by the TA. Overall easiest class I had all year.
