The only reason I would recommend him is due to the fact that's it's really easy to do well in his class. Just show up to class and read the books and you're guaranteed at least a 90. He was rude at times to some students that were late and is extremely monotone, so the class was painfully boring. If grades are most important for you, take him.

Long and very boring classes but quite easy if you do what is asked. Sometimes can be confusing with his explanations though. Not very organized; we did practically nothing during the semester and then the last 4 weeks, he threw us all the exams and essays. He is an easy marker (just give very specific and detailed answers in the tests and exams). Would recommend if you want easy grades but would not recommend if you want an interesting and captivating class.

He is the most boring teacher you will ever have. He lectures the entire class. Never asks any questions, never gives out any work, he just talks. He will never stop talking, there are no pauses, no breaks, just words. Its like reading a book written in only one paragraph. It's nearly impossibly to actually pay attention to what he says. He pretty much repeats the same concepts over and over in different ways.
The only good thing is that you can do pretty much what ever you want during class

He's a really really nice person and very patient and knows what he's teaching. The unfortunate thing is that he's boring. You will want to sleep. He should make students do team work and other stuff like a library scavenger hunt. Anyway, his exams have a lot of questions but you can stay the entire class to do them, so it's not too hard. He does fail students so you have to work to pass. He may be boring, but at least he's nice and not cruel towards students.
