I think Finck is a great teacher. He was a little sketchy about what would be on the tests ("anything and everything we have covered in the lectures or homework" is a direct quote I believe). He was very disorganized with getting a workable set of texts for us to read from and backtracked on some of the information he gave to read us as he realized it was confusing and outdated (but I am not sure why he didn't realize this before he assigned it). The midterm was easy and the final was not.

Professor Finck is absolutely incredible. He makes sure we understand every concept, takes feedback for every class, answers each doubt, and is also very engaging and funny. His tests are mostly based on the lines of his lectures and his homework. Overall, TAKE HIS CLASS!

He's a great guy and really cares about teaching. His class isn't very hard, as long as you review the material every week. He's super generous about grading and feels terrible if they graded your tests incorrectly. I came in with my final and showed him a question and he gave me partial credit and it raised my grade to an A-.

The class was a much lighter workload compared to my other classes. Finck is an engaging lecturer, although he can occasionally get diverted on tangents. You can tell that he cares about teaching, and that's really refreshing to see in a professor.
