3 evaluations Recognizes Student Difficulties: 3.00 Presents Material Clearly: 2.00
It was hard to keep track of what we were learning in class. We hardly covered everything on the PowerPoints. The book wasn't good and didn't really match with the lectures. There were only three homework assignments and they were roughly 7% each of our grades. Some of the homework was ridiculously hard and he sometimes wasn't too helpful during office hours. There were three midterms, which contained some information that wasn't covered in the lecture. For example, Wardrop Equilibrium Principle was not covered in the lectures nor homework. It wasn't even in the book and he expected us to know it by looking it up online. Luckily, each midterm was not cumulative and we were allowed to bring a formula sheet.
I received an A from this class by mostly studying his PowerPoint lectures and the homework. The midterms were way easier than the homework. The only hard part about the midterms were finishing the problems on time. I hardly read the book as it was not very useful. Luckily, this class was not too hard to self-study. Some students stopped showing up to class.
Dr. Bertini is one of the few professors who will invest time into students and help you succeed. As a professor, he expects you to learn but to also enjoy the class. He tells you what to study for and what will be on the midterms, so there's not really any surprises there. He is flexible in his schedule and will extend homework assignments or move things around in the syllabus. For an intro course, Dr. Bertini did a great job teaching it and is a great resource for networking!
I learned that if I were to take up hunting, I should shoot deer, not bears, because a bear will hunt me back if I successfully wound it. Fascinating! I didnt know that the key to production and operations management was so brutally simple!
