This is definitely a class where if you can't direct your own self-studies, you will be lost. The course material is dense and Neuman is so closely involved with his work that it is difficult for him to explain the topics outside of the culture; though he may try his best. The lectures are somewhat disorganized, there aren't any slides or outlines to follow. A lot of it is listening and jotting it down, keeping up with the speed of the lecture. No discussions to help you note take--definitely find a buddy and compare.

He can be tricky on tests. For example, on a quiz, he once made it so that the first half was all true, and the second was false. He is however, a very fair grader. Don't be expecting a break too often. Know the material and you'll be fine. He also does make up exams, which are helpful since there are a lot of quizzes in this course. His general philosophy is "i'd rather test often to make sure you're keeping up than administer a large exam".

A plus is that he is very quick in responding to emails and is very tech-saavy. There is no bumbling about, wasting time.

In end, I don't think I would take another class with him, but he teaches very well and the subject matter is interesting.
