He's a solid professor. Stats 10 is a relatively straightforward course, and he does a good job teaching it. His exams are very fair--do all the practice problems and you should be fine (he also always a note sheet for each exam).
No curve, just straight-scale. Lots of A's given out though. Drop lowest of seven homework, drop lowest of 6 quizzes, all 5 labs count but are easily done in lab section or at home if you never attend lab/discussion and do not require prior experience with the program.
Professor's fair. Always sounds grumpy and believe his interests are more aligned with the entertainment industry than academia haha. Not too bad at lecturing and ppts are straightforward though. Believe he's leaving starting Fall 2015.
No tricks necessarily on either midterm, very predictable based upon practice exams given on CCLE, the quizzes, and definitely the HW's (do the homework diligently, they'll probably teach you more than lecture). Extremely crunched for time though so work fast on these, although for the final he guaranteed us much more time than we needed.
You're allowed cheat sheets on all exams wooo. Haven't taken final exam yet but it's entirely multiple choice. Heard Langholz was better than Christou, and later in the morning than Lew at 8 AM even though heard fine things about her.
Clicker/attendance is 3 percent of class, compared to 10 percent of Lew's class.
Super easy class and I definitely recommend this professor. Everything he gives you are straight and to the point. Unfortunately for me, I slacked off after Aceing the fist midterm and got a C in the second one. I pulled off the class with an A- but an A was entirely doable if I didn't underestimate the class so much. The labs are a pain because they're tedious, not difficult. The discussions are made solely help you with the labs anyways, and to be honest you don't really need them. Homework is also a pain but not hard at all. Go to lecture and pay half attention in class and you should still be able to do well. Class was participation (lecture), homework, labs, and 2 midterms + 1 final. Cheat sheets are allowed which are super helpful.
