Jun 24, 2014 Good luck if you get him. I had him and my group spent the entire year doing ABSOLUTLEY nothing. Study by yourself for the departments finals because he will not teach you ANYTHING. You won't understand how serious i am till you get him. Flag Rating

Jan 29, 2014 I can't say that Williams is a good teacher, but I can say that he is a very easy grader. His class is ridiculous i have to say; he makes the class print out power points as our notes, and it wastes so much ink. Same thing with homework, it's all online printing. Plus, you won't understand his teaching. The power points are the bible to his class, but he can answer your questions though. Just study for his tests. They're not that hard actually. His class is practically a free 98! Flag Rating

Sep 09, 2012 He is cool, but did not teach. When you ask him questions, he would either say random things or "look at your notes" or "look at the powerpoint". GG. Flag Rating

Apr 17, 2012 He's alright, likes to get off topic a lot, but he's a cool teacher. I don't know what people saying how he doesn't answer questions, its just their stupid and really can't use their very own COMMON SENSE. Flag Rating

Apr 17, 2012 Mr.Williams has to be one of the most ridiculous teachers ever. His "teaching" consists of students reading Powerpoints and those Powerpoints aren't even clear. He expects you to know terms that he has never taught before and guess what? The only way you can self study is to look at those Powerpoints. There are no textbooks. I ask him a question and he says look in your notes. So i bring my notes up and say according to my notes, this has more functionality than that. And his reply can't tellyou Flag Rating

Apr 16, 2012 He's not a bad person. He can't teach very well, but he's nice. He mostly just shows us power points, but we do group work, and we get to talk to each other. Flag Rating

Apr 16, 2012 He's not good at teaching, but if you actually pay attention, you actually learn something. The comments below are just a bunch of haters and slackers. He is a good teacher and offers help if you need it. He has a good sense of humor. I enjoy being in his class. STOP HATING PEOPLE. Flag Rating

Oct 24, 2011 Good teacher= Literally teaches class, answers questions students have, ends up with students knowing even a bit more than before, and grades fairly and accordingly
Mr. Williams=Opposite of all that- Teaching-It's basically self study w/ powerpoints, loses projects and shifts blame to students, doesn't answer questions appropriately, his tests are STRAIGHT OUT word for word-meaning if you understand the concept, you still fail anyway

Sep 09, 2011 I truly and DEEPLY feel sorry for anyone who has this man as a "teacher". Doesn't teach, gives you PPTS to teach yourself, yells at you and doesn't help you when you ask a question. Flag Rating

Jul 27, 2011 He was a BAD teacher, he didn't teach. He talked and was never clear, no one ever understood and if we asked questions he wouldn't answer them. However you wont fail, and pretty decent grades. Flag Rating

May 03, 2011 He's the worst teacher I've ever had.In my whole life I've never been so clueless as to what I'm supposed to do. If you ask him, he...he won't even give you an answer! He expects you to know the stuff Flag Rating

Apr 05, 2011 Don't want to be mean. But he literally gives you power points to takes notes off of. Asking him questions results in him telling you "READ THE POWER POINT". He will NOT answer your question (I doubt he even knows the answers). He is also very strict and is lacking common sense. You must follow every single one of his instructions EXACTLY as he says otherwise he will give you a 0 for whatever he missed with no excuse.

The only tip I have for his class is to be a teachers pet. If he doesn't like

Oct 26, 2010 Had him for DDP and he really takes away the meaning of "DDP" whatsoever. Hes very disorganized with his grading policy and whats worse is his lesson structure. Giving a list of 45 vocabulary words of stuff hes never taught at all and telling us to refer to our "notes and powerpoints" for instruction and getting quizzed on it isn't working for anyone. He tells you to redo your project for not very good reasons as he adds on more projects to the list. He definitely picks favorites too so be lucky Flag Rating

Sep 15, 2010 Deffinately one of the worst teachers i have ever had. He gives more homework than all of your teachers combined. You teach yourself because he just gives you these tutorials and power points to look at. i doubt he even knows what he's teaching. All the kids hate him, and he gives so many projects. Almost all of the kids fail the final. If you have him, i highly reccomend transfering out of his class if you have him. he has favorites btw. Flag Rating

Sep 08, 2010 Since this is a college course he expects college level work. Further more he forgets things he has promised to make assignment easier and always adds 20 more things/steps to a project the day before it is due. If it is an in-class project he won't be clear and will be unhelpful claiming that you should figure it out alone. He is unclear in his descriptions and gives homework that is mostly busywork. Even by following his exact instructions for extra credit, he never gives it to you. Flag Rating

Jun 03, 2010 He could do a better job at actually teaching us things instead of giving us powerpoints that no one understands. Flag Rating
