Dinov is a genuinely nice Professor. He cares about student learning and is willing to do what it takes to teach his students. However that is not enough to make him a good Professor. He's very confusing and very random. He doesn't know how to simplify the material - rather he goes through it systematically as if we already knew all the rules. If you get a bad TA like I did then your in deep trouble.
He is a really nice guy. His lectures can get confusing however. Everything is done on power point - I think he has worked on the board 4 times this quarter for 2 seconds. His homeworks are really easy and his midterm was right of his study guide. It is easy to get a good grade in his class - but don't expect to retain too much.
Wow geez. I really didn't know that a professor could be this confusing. In all honesty, Dinov seems to be a really nice guy...but, nice only takes you so far. I will give you all three pieces of advice: 1)Do not take Stats 10 with him if you want to prepare yourself for later stats courses for your major, because you will learn nothing. 2) If however, you want an easy A, take him. 3)Do not buy the book. It is a wast of your money because he basically tells you the first day to never open it.
Dinov manages to confuse the class in lecture, and he doesn't follow the book very closely, so you will have a difficult time if you don't understand exactly what he is saying in class, as very few do. I do not recommend taking Dinov's course if it is avoidable.
I'm positive that Dinow is an intelligent man and tries really hard to get the course material out, but, c'mon, how are you supposed to understand math from viewing power point slides all lecture long? The man refuses to make chalk and chalk board meet. He's a great virtual professor cuz he's good with e-mails and VOH, but he runs through the material too quickly--clicking away on his laptop--and not at all interesting, or motivating for that matter. To get anything out of this class, you need to do a lot of independent study, seek out your TA and go to tutoring, cuz Dinov is quite impatient.
