Comment: If you understand Stats already that is helpful, but I had never taken the class before, and he kept switching between computer use and just handwriting problems. He was rather heavy in theory rather than practical application, though some problems were on theory. Essentially he is a teacher that is good at what he does, but not teaching it. GSI was a lifesaver in this class.

Comment: He's a fairly new professor, so he doesn't have a lot of experience teaching. His lecturing style sucks. All pdf slides with a whole lot of text. Sometimes the ends of his sentences trail off. His problem sets are really hard and they're almost completely pointless because they don't help with the exams at all. I think I actually did better on the exams than on the problem sets.
