Although students found Prof. Sobel to be nice and taught logic very well, ineffective communication lead to most of the class not showing up for lectures. Areas of improvement include correcting numerous mistakes in lecture notes, either extending time or reduce number of questions on the tests, and answering questions more appropriately.

Students very much appreciated Professor Sobel's breadth of knowledge suggesting that if anything he knows 'too much'. As a result of this some felt that too much knowledge was assumed of students and stages in explanation were skipped over. Some complained that lectures routinely started and ended late and also that they had trouble staying attentive. Several simply felt there was routinely too much information in not enough time.
