course comments :I didn't see any kind of point to this class. I was never really sure what we were doing or why we would want to do it.
class :Fall 2002 section 001
grade received :B
class rating :2 - Average
class comments :It wasn't too hard to just squeak through. I might not have had much of a clue through most of it, but it's easy to fake it and he let us resubmit the first project with corrections if need be.
instructor :White
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :Overall he wasn't bad. My only beef with him was that I emailed him with a question about the final project that was due on a Monday at noon the Thursday before that, and I didn't hear back from him until the Monday it was due at like 9 and by then I had given up all hope and just submitted my not quite right project..
