Extremely rude, unapproachable, and lazy. Minimum office hours and gets annoyed when you come see him because he rather be relaxing or doing something else. Very bad Macro teacher, compared to other teachers. Speaker very fast and the notes don't even follow the textbook. Give minimum worksheets and prepares you poorly for exams. Its rare that you will find a teacher who cares less about his students then David Dejardins. He thinks its normal when 1/2 of the student fail. Avoid at all costs!

Listen, he knows what he's doing, but he's a horrible teacher. Teaching is not his profession. He's rude, unclear and unnecessarily sassy. Never answeres questions or, if he does, in a terrible way that makes it more confusing. Also he's NEVER on time then gets mad when a student confronts him about it. Also, he never gives marks back within the 2 week period and doesn't put anything on omnivox. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

He's a knowledgable dude... but makes QM so much more complicated than it should be. Not recommended.

Can't believe he gets paid for teaching. Does not answer questions about any assignments/labs, completely disregards his students' confusion, answers questions with "Do what feels right". Makes zero effort to clarify theory and muddles it even more, to make it seem even more complicated. Avoid him, he's seriously an unpleasant guy.

AVOID. He is extremely unclear and a nightmare for any student who is taking QM because they have to and has no knowledge of stats. He fails to properly and thoroughly explain key concepts, almost tending to just glance over them and do an example, expecting students to understand. Rushes through the course and finishes a month early, unnecessary stress. First exam is easy, second one is DEATH. EXTREMELY unclear about project requirements and will refuse to clarify. 70 page QM project. AVOID.

I had David for Quantitative Methods. The class was really boring. He writes most of what he says on the blackboard. His labs are easy, but no one knew what he wanted for his projects. His tests are relatively straightforward if you understand the formulas and study your notes. Don't bother buying the textbook because he never uses it. David is approachable enough, but he gives really unclear answers.

I had him for Quantitative Methods. He's kind of an awkward guy. You get used to him as the semester goes on. His notes are clear. Don't try to understand why you are learning what you are learning. Just memorize the method and use it on the test and you're good. Siri is his best friend, get used to it. I got a 90% in his class, only because i did everything he asked us to do. There are two lab reports, 2 or 3 tests and that is it. He doesn't teach in May.

ok so here's the real deal --> dejar is a really nice and funny guy - i once asked for an extension as a joke and got like 2 weeks. His classes are a little impossible to understand but after doing the labs everything makes perfect sense. Don't panic just copy and it will all make sense later. There are 3 tests that are similar to the labs - they are ok - do the labs and ur guarenteed 80s. Don't worry though he marks high on the projects and labs so its v easy to get in the 90's as final if u try.
