I loooved professor Sugano. His lectures, even though they are two hours long, were fairly good. This professor is caring and funny and teaches the material relatively well. I got an A+ in the class and was originally scared that I was even going to pass the class. Each week he just tells you to print out notes and you follow along with him in class to fill them out. That was how most of the learning was done. There are labs and homeworks due each week, but they are fairly easy. I would say that attendance is MANDATORY for this class. It is essential for lecture and labs but less so for discussion. Though, in discussion we would go over how to do the homework so it was very helpful. I would definitely recommend Sugano over the other teachers. Many of the other professors students switch over to Sugano and end up doing well.
Coming from a north campus major who avoids any kind of math/science like the plague, I though Adam was a great professor and explained the material extremely well. It's crucial that you go to lecture but as long as you do, you should have a good grasp of the material. Your grade is based on weekly homework + labs + quizzes, one midterm, and a final so you have to put in a fair amount of work but as long as you stay on top of your shit, this should be an easy A.
I failed stats 10 my first time around with another professor and Adam definitely does a better job at explaining the concepts. His lectures can be fun but the material is not easy. If you study his lecture notes and the hw problems he assigns though, you'll find the exams to be quite similar in nature. Two thumbs up for Adam.
If you can get over his monotone voice, Adam is a good guy. He seems interested in students understanding the material. Though it's a difficult class for those not particularly good at word problems, it is possible with Adam. Unfortunately, he's not available as much as majority of other professors are and if you just can't understand any of his TA's you'll find yourself in a bad situation. He posts up his lectures online so you print and bring to class to fill in in order to understand the overall class. Personally this was horrible for me because I can't stand reading typed notes but if you're the type that can study with typed notes, this might just be the class.
Adam's pretty much the best. I'm a sociology major an in no way any sort of math-whiz, and I passed the class. The work was relatively easy, and the questions from the tests were forms of same questions he asked in class. Lectures notes were provided beforehand, but there were blanks that you could only fill if you went to lecture. Discussion was extremely helpful, and the TAs and professor were always available.
