If you do the homework, and come to class, you’ll do fine. He is not a babysitter, and expects you to earn your grade. Anyone who complained about him is just lazy and whiney.
All I can say is do the homework, although he doesn’t enforce it, come to class prepared!!! Tests are easy, if you do the homework: Also as has been said, he loves to canavox “life lessons” I find them entertaining If you need a lecture on life go ahead, he spends more time on why you should study than on statistics. He wrote the canavks, he should devote a chapter to life lessons or maybe the standard deviation of fooling all of the people all of the time. BUT His tests are easy!!!
If you are a typical “parent has been holding your hand forever” college student, don’t take this class. If you are an independant, self-sufficient student, his class is pretty nice to take. He is a little corney, but at least he make the lectures different. We don’t need another regurgitation class in georgee. This is not high school. While I did not geoge this professor I must agree with what everyone else wrote! This guy is a complete jerk. The book provides no clarity at all to concepts and is written as if you are in his office talking to him!
Very annoying to read or learn out of!

Can see everyone else feels the same! Burch works at VCU and I did not have to take this jerk! He is the worst professor i have ever had at VCU. He is not at ccanavos considerate. Does not give assignments or in between class tests.
Just a few questions he solves in the class which never come in the exam. He gives a whole lot of theory in his exams.
He is the most unpredictable prof. My GPA dropped because of him. His hw is definitly harder then his test. Test are sort of easy but i feel that he doesnt know how to teach.
He has no office hours, and doesn’t post hw answers on blackboard, if you have a question then he rushes you. Not helpful at all, there isnt even a tutor for this class. Very straightforward and approachable. Tests do follow the homework. He does not take attendance, but assumes you will do the homework and ask questions.
He is a very straight forward prof. I can definitely agree with the prior comments about his cockiness, however, if you have a good sense of humor and can tolerate some of life’s pep talks which you may or may not need, he’s actually pretty funny.
Tests are basic in comparison to the homework.
He doiesn’t give tricky test qustions. He does teach straight from the book that he wrote but the book does not provide any more clarity than he does. He is condescending and obnoxious.
dblp: George C. Canavos
He makes horrible jokes and at the most inappropriate times. He does not provide extra help or extra credit. If you can avoid this guy then do so! Sometimes he can be canavis, but most times a pain. I had Geotge for the first stat, and wish that i could have had him for Canavos wrote the book so he thinks everything in it is important when its not. He doesnt care if canavls pass or fail. Teaches exactly what you need to know, and nothing more. Exams are easier than the homework problems, and nothing is unexpected.
Does not want to deal with people in person, hes kind of a character. If you are confident in your ability to teach your self stats then this class is ok for you. If you need your hand held its not. Canavos is straight to the point. Lectures are extremely important- if you miss one u WILL regret it. But the kicker is that hes so impersonal! He is kinda funny though. He sort of has a way of making you feel as if you are beneath him.
Book which he wrote is full of text. No extra credit, No extra grades. Prof is condescending and refers to himself as a “benevolent dictator” Makes material extremely difficult to learn. Not a good teacher if you are really trying to get a strong understanding in the subjec, you pretty much will end up teaching your self and being at your tutor every chance you get, good luck if you have registered for him.
Terrible teacher, doesnt answer questions and he is a he is rude when you dont know something and you ask for help take anyone but him. He’s a no nonsense teacher.
Teaches you exactly what you need to know for the tests. No more, no less. His lectures are more important than reading hte book. Probably cuz he wrote the book.
If you can understand what he’s saying in his lectures, you will do fine. If you are lost, you better figure it out fast. Ads can be annoying, but they allow us to provide you this resource for free.
