Very harsh grader, but makes a consistent effort to communicate with his students.

Group presentations and project are unfair - grades as a group and if you get stuck with the bads, then you are screwed. Knows what he is teaching. A pretty harsh grader, and will find things to take off on your grade - even small things. Attendance is pretty much mandatory or he will hunt your @55 down.

His grading is unfair. He always sees the glass half empty and looks for flaws, no matter how insignificant he seems to find them and take off points. His exams have questions that include details that aren't necessary in my opinion. He cares a lot about the students and wants them to succeed but is unreasonable with grades and exams.
