I really enjoyed this class, as stressful as it was. Professor Coronado is funny, engaging, and knows supply chain management inside and out. My best advice is read the chapters slowly and carefully, and utilize quizlet for all the terminology (there are already quizlets made for this specific class). Another thing: watch out for the quizzes. Each point counts, so make sure you know what material will be covered and make sure you know it well. The class becomes super engaging after the first couple weeks; conversations about current supply chain developments and course material were interesting and useful. Professor Coronado is a great, really friendly guy who cares about his students—he constantly reminded us that he is willing to help out with any questions, whether it is about class/connections/careers/etc. Some of his quiz questions could sway to one answer or another, but he encourages you to email him and argue for your answer choice to try to get your points back. Also, book the extra credit presentations early. Spots will fill up quickly, and I'd recommend presenting at least once in each half of the semester so that you have some level of comfort going into the exams.

The previous review is a bit harsh but it is a situation where it is an easy class with lots and lots of concepts/topics that only have quizzes and exams as your grade. The topics/concepts are honestly very very basic and easy, the problem is that the professor goes on forever about them. His philosophy is that he drills the concepts in your head till you honestly do not need to study that hard to do well on the quizzes. But the problem is that he repeats things constantly and it is very hard to stay motivated and pay attention to class. His quizzes are also recycled and are mostly on Quizlet so you can study for those before going to class as prep. Though, some questions are a bit tricky and do not genuinely test the students' understanding (strange wording and some "kinda right" answers to trick you). He claims that you can earn the grade you want in the class by signing up for presentations (15 min ones you present to the class) but he is kind of slow on answering emails and queues you weirdly with the other students who are desperately trying to up their grades. I also feel like he favors some supply chain major students more which can be unfair if you are trying to sign up presentations and you can get bumped down. I really do not see the reason to go to class if you do read the textbook on your own time, the chapters are kind of long but the classes you go to is him basically reading textbook slides (he does not share his slides) and him verbally drilling things into you. He is a great lecturer but after sitting through it for almost an entire semester of him projecting loudly, it gets very tiring and boring. He has a no laptop policy (except when we have quizzes) and wants you to do handwritten notes (unless you have accommodations) which is his attempt in keeping your attention. I would be more ok with the class if I can type my notes and do other work because it is honestly a waste of time to sit through class. I am glad I read the textbook on my own time since he zooms through concepts or goes through the same concept for 20 minutes. I would not recommend taking him but if you need a relatively chill class and ok doing work outside of class, this class is good. I am not a supply chain major but he is good at explaining and breaking things down for you and the topic is relatively interesting if you want a taste.

Honestly, I don't even know where to start. The professor didn't seem to fully grasp the concepts he was teaching, and the "correct" answers on his quizzes were frequently vague or blatantly wrong. I remember one question asking "Which of these is an expensive way to ship?" Answers: Freight, flight, boat. The answer was boat but wtf okay I guess. Oh yeah, and he recycles most of his quiz and exam questions from previous semesters. It's a classic situation of an easy class conceptually with lengthy and confusing multiple choice questions that make up 100% of the grade.
