course rating :3 - Good
course comments :Good course with another instructor (so I've heard).
class :Fall 2004 section 001
grade received :C
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :Did I mention Alexander bites? Well, he does. . . If he used a real text rather than what he thinks needs to be included within his course notes all would be well. The only bonus is the bookstore doesn't get any more of your money.
instructor :Alexander
instructor rating :0 - Horrible
instructor comments :I guess you either like this buttmunch or you don't. Guess which side of the fence I'm on. He's a brilliant man, and he'll tell you so if you ask. And I dare you to ask a question in or out of class . . . I double dog dare you. Be on your toes if you dare . . . What an asshole!

course :ECE 421
course rating :2 - Average
course comments :This course takes a lot of 301 stuff and digs just a little bit deeper. Not really a whole lot to learn here, actually. The whole class feels redundant.
class :Fall 2005 section 002
grade received :N/A
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :The homeworks were kinda long and hard, but not the worst I've had. It took forever to get tests back. However, they graded generously.
instructor :Dual hallen
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :Very bad board handwriting. Teaches straight from the book. I didn't really go a whole lot. She seemed nice enough. Her saving grace (what kept her from getting a 1 from me) is that she gave excellent test reviews.

course :ECE 421
course rating :1 - Bad
course comments :Not sure if it was just this go round, but it was a complete rehash of 301. Very little new material. Too bad you have to take it for ECE 713.
class :Fall 2005 section 002
grade received :B
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :She taught directly, 100% from the book. Zero originiality, and her lectures were hard to follow and even harder to read. Tests took weeks to get back, and were inconsistent with lectures. She held no office hours, and the FOB TA's were seldom helpful.
instructor :Dual hallen
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :A very nice woman, you really can't hate her at all. She is caring but seemingly out of touch with the students. She is accomodating and compassionate, but you just have this feeling that she doesn't quite get it. Oh, and she isn't Russian. She's Norwegian.
