Teacher is very good at math and engineering but it also very bad at teaching. His lectures were unclear, the math was too hard for most of the class.

If you can help it, don't take this class. He is a smart man but doesn't answer questions, doesn't work through examples, has a monotonous voice that makes it hard to pay attention and almost the entire class dropped within the first 2 weeks. It's hard, confusing, boring and I ended up teaching myself.

The man clearly wants out of teaching. Doesn't communicate with students, doesn't give general strategies for solving problems and seems bored out of his mind. It's a shame he's the only one teaching Discrete Structures.

I did his classes online: Fundamentals to Networking, Router Theory, LAN Switching and found that he was one of the worst teachers I have ever encountered. I asked him a question about his books for class and he NEVER responded. I wasn't able to get anything done in this class and had to drop the last two. Don't have him, if u can avoid it!

Ross's lectures can be very helpful if he cares about the topic...but most the time he ends up droning on about most topics. He's a genius, not a speaker that is for sure. You will learn though, if you can pay attention and show up.

Alan Ross is definately a mathematical genius. I learned a ton in his class, but I would have to say that it was one of the hardest to keep up with. He grades on a bell curve and treats students with questions like idiots, but if you can stick it out, you'll learn a lot. I hate that my ratings contribute to his negative score because I really found his class useful, and would recromend it to others.

A great class to refine your doodling skills.
