course comments :SAS is definately a good thing to know.

grade received :A
class rating :1 - Bad
class comments :Not a very well run class. There wasn't very much work at all. The tests were laughable, and I think he gave everyone A's on their projects unless you were completely clueless. I don't feel like I learned all that much, which could come back and hurt me.

instructor comments :Very nice guy, and I hate to say anything bad about him because he was very understanding when I needed an extension on an assignment. He obviously knew statistics, but I don't think he knew how to effectively teach an undergraduate class at all. Less than half of the people showed up, the ones that did surfed the internet. He just kinda talked to himself in front of the class for 50 minutes and didn't seem to know or care that no one was listening.

course comments :Introducation to SAS/programming. If you've had a programming class before this, you'll be bored. TAKE THIS COURSE WITH ST302. The ST302L and this will make you a SAS genius by the time you are done. 302L covers a lot of the procs. This covers data manipulation and interpretation more.

class comments :I think for a 400-level course, this should have been a lot more intenstive. CSC11x should be another prereq (required for ST majors anyways). Homework assignments and examples often gave real world data / situations to work with. He had us analyze weather data for the final project and write a report about it.
instructor :Monahan
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :He's been doing this for years, so he knows his stuff. He did a good job explaining concepts in lecture. The programming/homework assignments were baffling at times though.

course comments :All about SAS. I agree with Perlith about taking this with ST302L, but not about needed a CSC for a prereq.
class :Spring 2005 section 001
grade received :C+
class rating :3 - Good
class comments :You don't have to go to class very much, but you should keep up with the material. The book is a very good source. HW every week 2 weeks or so. Tests are just like the practice ones, and shouldn't be a problem if you learned the procs and syntax. Do the homework well; it's about half the grade.
instructor :Monahan
instructor rating :2 - Average
instructor comments :He's okay, but not really exciting, and you can learn the whole class with just the book and sample programs.

class comments :i think this class would be better with a different teacher. but it was really boring and i found it pointless to go to class bc it didnt really help you with the homework. the homework was really hard i suggest making friends! the book is really hard to understand...i only bought one of them. looking back i kinda wish i had got both books maybe together they would have been good.

instructor rating :1 - Bad
instructor comments :he is really really boring! he also cant really teach and never really taught us how to use sas. he is a raelly hard grader and takes points off for everything, however, he curves a lot.
