WORST professor I had in my first semester here. Boring (!) powerpoints EVERY single day, tests were extremely hard. Kind of a jerk to me when I would email him. Failed the class

He is a funny guy but has a tendency to put you to sleep, the lecture is pretty easy, if you actually take notes, i wouldnt recommend taking the lab.

Most boring class ever. It is hard to sit still for 75 minutes as he goes through powerpoint slide after slide. He doesn't let you out early. Doesn't respect his students. Tests are way too hard for a 100 level class. I think our class average is an E. AVOID!!!

GEL 101, 102lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is all about powerpoints (gel 101) Dave likes to speed through each slide . His famous words:: "Oh dont worry its all in the book" Dave likes to fail his class like recently our class avg on our exam was a 51% Gel 102= Labs are not counted nor corrected. Its a self ass class. Class Avg=49

Not that great of a teacher, he just babbles on and doesnt seem to have the field experience to talk about. His lestures are unclear and all on powerpoint. He moves too quickly to try and take notes.

Good guy, but too smart to understand. The class is not easy or fun, but if you study for your tests you'll be fine. There are no quizzes or homework.

dave is a nice guy and tries to be on you the same level as his students. his classes are hard and he expects you to know way more than he teaches. don't expect to ever get your homeowrk back if he actually grades it. he has no problem making you look stupid. beware of the gold rock. obey me!

GEL 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

he's very laid back and funny. He gives you a study guide, and there's rarely ever homework. THere's a lot of group work but that's his way of taking attendance. he is willing to help you if you make an effort. attendance important but not crutial and if you dont' take the lab with it, it's okay

Very substantial course. Dr. Matty taught us a lot and expected a lot. One of my best courses at CMU. Exams were tough but fair. Matty is a good guy and a great teacher. Taught us how to THINK! Take this class if you can.

"THAT IS, YOU WILL NOT PASS THE COURSE WITH A LECTURE AVERAGE OF 100% AND A LAB AVERAGE OF 59%" There is no need for that rule of your courses. It looks very rude written that on the course webpage!

It would help if the study guides for the exams covered all the material on the exam!
