Students in this course report that Professor Schillachi is a generally competent lecturer, enthusiastic and engaged with his subject matter, but they express various concerns about the structure of the course. Several comment that the midterm was returned in sections, the later part quite late, and this impacted their ability to gauge their progress in the course. They also felt that grading was at times arbitrary and inconsistent. Quite a number of students mentioned that the tutorial felt like a separate class and that handling both sides of the course contributed significantly to their workload. Most, however, did appreciate their TA, John.
