Comment: Paul is pretty great. Assignments are quick and easy, tests all follow the same format and are easy to do well on with a quick hour of review before them. He likes interacting with the class outside of just teaching, so he does keep things interesting. Although I did well in the class, I will say that his teaching wasn't always the best. If I didn't already know a lot of the topics covered in this class, I probably would've been a bit lost. A few lectures he even said that he was having an off day and that he was messing up the grammar, etc. But honestly he's only human and a great guy, would recommend taking his class. Oh and definitely go to his office hours and ask to review your papers before you turn them in.
