Possibly the Greatest Prof EVER!

I am taking Operations Management for Competitive Advantage this term.
Sounds fun, right?!
Suprisingly,  it has been my favorite class so far in the grad program.
It probably helps a lot that the professor for this class is one of the best.
He makes the subject interesting.
And he does not care about memorizing he wants us to actually understand the concepts.

Well, part of the reason for the title of this post is because of our midterm exam.
The midterm consisted of an in-class portion worth 40% of the grade and a take-home portion worth 60%.
Now the in-class portion was a doozy.
I am usually a fast test taker and it took me an hour and 45 minutes to answer 24 questions.
But I think I did really well on it!!!
The take-home exam was a different story all together.
We had 2 days to complete it and it was open-book and untimed!
Even better, he actually told us which chapters the questions came from.
I am talking about specifics, like questions 1-20 can be found in chapter 1, etc.

Yeah, if anyone fails the take-home part they REALLY are not even trying.
I may actually specialize in operations management because of this class.
{Just because I ♥ Calvin & Hobbes}


  1. I just have to say, your affinity for Calvin and Hobbes is hilarious. SoldierMan is a total Calvin and Hobbes fanatic. He even downloaded a Calvin and Hobbes app for his phone, so he gets a new strip every day. When he's been out in the field he has to catch up on what he's missed.
