Grades a little difficult, but assignments are overall pretty fun and you will get at least a B-/C+ on them if you do what's required. Is a little intimidating, but he's a good guy at heart. Just don't push his buttons.

Grades a little too rough, especially on the final. But overall, a very helpful teacher. He needs to loosen up a little, though. :)
