Overall, students felt that Professor Binnick was an excellent instructor who consistently lectured with enthusiasm with regards to the lecture material. Many found that the course was well-presented, incorporating examples and class discussions regularly. Some students felt that the course text did not explain concepts clearly, and felt that another text or supplementary readings could have been assigned. One suggestion students had for Professor Binnick was to include more assignments as a better indicator of studentsí progress, rather than using one large term paper.
