Josh was a great professor, he's a grad student and still has that drive to inspire others. He was receptive to feedback and is very enthusiastic. The home works were manageable and the exams were more than fair. He had 3 straightforward projects and his reply time on piazza was omniscient. Honestly a great guy and an awesome professor. I am by no means an honor student, but even I managed to get an A. Meet with him in office hours if you need help he's really great at explaining the material. If you study the home work you'll definitely succeed on the exams. Definitely take him if you get the chance.

Bless papa Josh. I took Josh during the summer of 2018 and it was super chill. The project were very simple and straightforward. He is very communicative on piazza and in class as well. The homeworks were manageable (could complete them all in one day) He was also very communicative on piazza. (Questions had a very fast response time and he gives straight answers, none of that "go read the text book on page ___." stuff. Overall, i would definitely recommend him.

At the time, Josh was a PhD student teaching this class during a Summer semester. He was pretty chill (as was this class) when it came to the material, grading and the exams. We had one midterm which was significantly easier than the homeworks (which already are not so bad) and a final exam which was a little harder but I never felt unprepared for any of it. I wouldn't say he is very effective when it comes to conveying the material. I still had gaps in my knowledge that only YouTube and other outside sources could fill. Overall, the class is easy. Josh makes it easy and from day one he told us "This is probably the easiest 400 level you will take here", and "I do not like failing anyone so I try my best not to do so". If you want to take a 400 level class during the summer, and Josh is teaching it again, consider this class.
