Comment :
Worst prof ever. Avoid at all costs if possible. Not only was the class extremely unorganized, but what makes it worse is that it convers difficult material. After the first midterm he comes into class a week later and doesn't even have them marked. Instead, he puts the solutions on the overhead and tells us to copy them down. Meanwhile he begins marking all the midterms at the front of the class and as he finishes marking each midterm, he would record the grade and call upon each student individually to come get their midterm. And if that wasn't bad enough, he would make a stupid comment in front of the whole class as each student gets their midterm. Like if you didn't do well he would be like "Try to do better next time". Then after he handed everything back he points at the student who received the highest mark and says "XXXX got the highest mark so ask him for help if you need it".
