This class was tough.
It's required. However, the particular instructor that I had had a text book, but he didn't teach what was in the text book. It's not necessarily wrong information, it just takes students by surprise. Also, the next semester, in the following class, the new instructor reteaches everything that this guy taught in a two week review because he likes to do things according to the book.
I learned nearly nothing. As I previously stated, the guy didn't teach what was in the text book. He's not necessarily a bad instructor if you learn that way. I just like to reinforce my knowledge with reading and doing hands on work.

Advice for students:
I'm not certain that the instructor listed above is the correct one. I think that it's him, but I'm not certain. It's been a while. If you get that particular instructor, and this form of teaching doesn't work for you, drop the class so that it doesn't affect your GPA. If you want to know who it is, ask around.
