Tough class but good professor; most of the people here complaining probably failed the class because they didn't study or they were not ready to take this class. Study and understand the concepts and you should be fine. Memorize and you will fail. Those who have relied on cheating and last minute studying get ready for that brutal wakeup call

Wang is a great professor teaching a tough class. If you want to pass the class you're going to have to work for it. I studied about 24 hours in total for the final and still got a problem wrong. The hard part about this class is there's 6 questions combined in the 2 exams that make up 90% of your grade. So 1 wrong and you're already 15% down!

BEST professor at FIU. He is a genius. The class itself is extremely tough, but he literally teaches you step by step, word for word, what you need to know for the tests. If you study his notes, you will have no problem. The tests are basically the homework, with maybe a twist. Nothing surprising.

HE DRAINED MY SOUL AND DESTROYED MY SPIRIT. If you are a civil engineer student, you are required to take this class sooner or later, the sad thing is, this guy is the only one teaching it. The pass/ fail ratio in this class is about 50%, good luck.

Dr. Wang is set of how he grades his exams. You really have to understand the material, especially how to solve the problems correctly. He is really tough on grading, but you will learn a lot from him. For students who got a c- in his class, try taking the class again with other professor if there is one. The truth is, classes Dr. Wang teaches are weed out courses.

This class will be the end of the line for many civil engineering students. Professor Wang does not curve, does not give away grades. Half of the students in his class are repeating the course for the second or third time already. GOOD LUCK...

Thanks Dr. Wang, I got a C- one point away from a C, talked to him and he said he can't do nothing about it, worst professor ever!

This is an unbiased honest review on professor Wang. You may have heard horrid stories about him, but believe me, they must have come from lazy people. The secret on this class lies on doing all the homework given in class and understand whats going on in it, and believe me, you will do fine. Any tips? yes, MOMENT OF INERTIA, CENTROIDS, AND SHEAR.

This is not a teacher that is going to give you a grade. If you do the homework, pay attention in class and study. You will do fine. If you day dream in class, copy the solution manual and expect an easy grade you will be on here complaining.

EGMEGM Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Welcome to engineering. I feel the only way that you can pass is to do old tests. Not necessarily memorize them but know how to do them. I agree with everyone though if you didn't pass its because you didn't study. Understand how to do every problem, and go to his office to ask questions and you'll be fine.

Dr. Wang is an awesone professor. Everybody who complains about him simply does not want to put ANY effort into learning. I recently finished this course and more than half of the students dropped after the midterm.Furthermore, out of the ones who stayed, more than 2/3 of the them still failed.The ones who fail are the ones memorizing prev. exams

You could tell he doesn't get along with his TA's and mean to them. Mid term and final exams are hard and he doesn't give you enough time and is VERY TOUGH ON GRADING. I suspect that the reason he fails many students is because students will take the class again, meaning more money to fiu.

This is the worst professor I ever had. He fails a lot of his students. Doesn't care for them at all. His tests are hard and his final is impossible. He picks and chooses who passes his class before you even finish it.

This guy has been teaching in FIU for about 20 years, so even if students argue to the Dean of the engineering about how he fails many students, no further action will happen.

If you want to experience failure, you should take the class with this guy. Just to be clear, this professor isn't some evil or bad person, he just wants you to learn how to handle failure.

He gets mad when you ace the first test and he will make the final exam really hard so you will end up getting a C minus for the class. avoid him.

please don't take his class, it will save you time and money. If you really need the class just wait for someone to teach it. He covers too many materials and even A students failed his class.
