Comment :
I did not like the professor's teaching method. I found him very boring and hard to understand at times. The class was composed of five tests and one take home exam essay. The tests were really hard to do good on, he was really picky with the answers. The tests were each worth 12% but only had like 5 questions on them so by getting even one question wrong, made a huge difference.
