Comment: The final "product" for this class is absolutely brutal and will consume the second half of your semester. It's a really useful course that I've been told by alums will really help IEORs in the future. Prof. Schruben has a quite interesting style of teaching, but has a reader with lecture slides that helps to follow along in. Exams are fairly straight forward and Schruben makes an effort to make sure the exams are fair for everyone. Worthwhile class, but a decent amount of work in the latter half.

Comment: Worthless class where the prof kept talking over and over again about the same (outdated) stuff that he claimed could "sell" immediately after taking the course. No organization or structure to speak of at all (he would put it "non-linear thinking" though, just as a lot of his other crappy B.S. that he would tell). Explicitly tells you the stuff would be tested on during the midterm but never gives a clear, much less thorough explanation of what he's talking about. GSI's helped a little but lack any organization or teaching experience. This is what you get in a public university where prof don't give a XXXX about teaching.
