Very demanding and maybe a bit arrogant, but very helpful if you show interest in his class. While the material of the class is far from impossible, he is a very difficult grader, where very few minor mistakes (sign errors, final steps, equations) can often be the difference between an A and an E in a test. Study his examples.

Condescending, skips material, tests on material before hw is due, test on material before hw is graded, tests often arbitrary grading ie, points deducted for nothing or miss word like "diametrically opposed". AVOID

He's a good teacher. Good at getting you to understand things. His tests can be pretty tough but make sure you know how to do the examples he gives you in class. And if you go to his office hours for help on homework, he is always happy to help. The only bad thing is that homework counts for a very small percentage of your grade.

He was late to class but refused to let students that arrive even minutes after him turn in homework. He kept us late to make up for his tardiness. His first test was hard, but he does prepare you for them. He says that all test and quizzes are based mostly on in class example and homework problems. So before a class, look at your notes.

Very strict attendance policy with heavy influence on grade. Takes personal offense if you show up late/leave early. Constantly holds class overtime. Multiple times we had to remind him we had class after his. Huge ego. Exams and quizzes have lots of in class examples - if he does a problem more than once, memorize it!

A lot of people complain about Missoum. I was of this group initially. As time passed however, I was able to appreciate the effort he placed into the course. He genuinely wanted hi students to understand the concepts. Office is almost always open and free for students to come in for help. Challenging course, but an overall good class.

This man is the worst teacher alive. He chased a student when they left leaving early, followed them outside. The worst teacher at UA, hands down. Try CE 215 instead

He doesn't give pop quizzes and take attendence for the students- he seems to be on a bit of a power trip. So arrogant he won't even let grad students doing research with him call him by his first name. Lectures aren't too bad. Tests are very hard, but he does the problems almost verbatim in class. Also a hard grader and doesn't answer emails.

His lectures were very straight forward and clear. The exams pretty much consist of the problems he does in class and a few homework problems. I felt he cared about the success of his students, because he doesn't let you slack by taking attendance and having pop quizzes, which makes you study. I learned a lot in his class.

This guy is terrible, and he ruined the class. Make sure to take the CE version of this class. Basically you have to memorize entire problems to do well on the exams. Terrible Teacher.

Sloppy diagrams and writing. Generally unclear teaching. Not a skilled educator with a general disinterest in his students' learning. TERRIBLE BOOK.

Very difficult class. His expectations are unreasonable and often unclear. The lectures and reviews do not prepare you for the homework or exams. Make sure your work is always extremely neat and contains thorough explanations off to the side or you will lose substantial points. He can also be very rude to students, he once demanded to see the death
