Many students found Professor Placenza’s lectures to be very interesting and presented in a well organized manner. Though Professor Placenza’s lecture material was very useful and relevant to the subject matter, many students found the textbook to be of little use. Suggestions to the professor include showing some videos that are relevant to the subject matter and also making the exams a bit easier.

Students suggest that the pace of lecture be slowed down to accommodate the large amount of interesting material to be covered. Students also commented on the unfair marking scheme of having points deducted for incorrect answers. Overall however, Professor Erb was an excellent instructor.
