Horrible Professor. I alrady graduated from UCF but need this class for pre-req for grad school. His tests are only 4 - 6 questions and lets you answer any 3 or 4. I got 2 out of 4 wrong and I failed the test. His teaching is all over the place and doesn't make the info easy to understand. Take Murphy for stats instead.

A terrible instructor hard to follow and understand not a fair grader. He doesn't seem to want to help students. he teaches like an engineer and expects you to know everything. The homework isn't worth do it. In the tests he grades all and leaves 2 questions out don't see how that helps even if you answer it and have it right it won't count.

Statistics sucks, but Prof McNutt made it interesting. I got a B (which says a lot since "C" was my goal). You will need the textbook. He gives partial credit on tests and all the right answers to chapter test. You get to use a cheat sheet for the final, so if you fail the class you have to really just not try.

Bad professor, very disorganized. One test will have 3 chapters, the next will have 7 . He expects you to cram all chapters, his hand outs, homework problems and everything else he said for each test. Give EC for homework but its negligible. Doesnt allow early leaving. Labs are cool, everything else sucks.

Not a great teacher. Very unorganized. Doesn't use the textbook, so studying is a bust. Isn't clear during lectures. Goes off on tangents and leaves examples incomplete. Allows cheat sheets on tests but it's pointless anyways because you won't even understand your notes. If you take him, good FREAKING luck!!!

Mcnutt is horrible. DO NOT TAKE HIM. He lets you use a cheat sheet for your tests so if you don't take him for physics II you won't pass. Also, in my notes there are sentences that just stop or incomplete problems because he will start talking about something else. If you don't learn by having a problem full of variables you're screwed.

Horrible. He lets you use your own formula sheets each test but it was pointless for me because the questions on the test were always twisted from what he taught in class & he doesn't teach from textbook; pointless to buy it unless you want extra credit for homework. Valencia really needs to get professors that can TEACH not just know the subject.

He is neither the easiest nor the hardest professr. At times he tends to go off on tangents. He allows you to make a formula sheet for tests. But sometimes the questions he asks are either very unique, make you have to think beyond the norm, or may just be very lenghty and easy to get lost in all the variables he throws in.

He does have a tendency to get lost in some tangental topics while lecturing, but he is excellent at explaining and deriving the formulas and information. I recommend him as he is passionate about teaching.

This is a difficult course in general. Prof offers help after class and extra credit. Although it is not required, go to class. He provides many handouts, which you will be tested on. Textbook is required. Does not use blackboard and slow to respond to e-mails. Pleasant and respectful to students.

This teacher is a sweet heart. He loves his subject and its very apparent. I took him both semesters, he doesn't follow the textbook as much as alot of professors, but he tries to explain his concepts the best he can. He tests on what he teaches, not on what is in the book. Attendance isn't mandatory but you should ALWAYS show up. Very sweet man.

Very nice professor, will help you during his office hours whenever you need it. Treats students with 100% respect. His tests can get difficult but he's very lenient with the grading and gives plenty of partial credit. Go to class, pay attention, ask questions, do the extra credit, and you're golden. I have so much respect for this professor.

Worst teacher on the face of this planet. He loses every single paper he has and messes up everyone's grades. He skips around chapters, then comes back to them, revises the syllabus at least 3 times. Tests are always unbearable and include everything that was not taught. If you are only taking this class because of your majors requirements, avoid!

I should not have taken him. Hard to keep up with him. He over explains everything which gets confusing. I found easier ways to find the same answer he would get with less work. He confuses everything. I'm not taking him for 1054. I am barely passing with a C right now. Stay away unless you love physics or already have a good understanding or it.

Although attendance wasn't mandatory, I highly recommend going regularly. The material can be challenging, but it's much easier if you attend all/most classes. Prof. McNutt is very knowledgable about the subject, offers lots of extra credit, and is extremely kind, respectful and helpful to students. Great class!

Not a bad instructor, definitely loves mathematics. He can get a little lost in his own tangents at times and you as a student must be aware when this happens because things can get a little confusing. Lots of extra credit given out and tests are somewhat predictable. Very respectful and he strives to give as many real world examples possible.

Professor McNutt is very well organized and a very skilled instructor. Reviews the testable material before each test, gives credit for homework, will drop the worst test and answers questions. He is VERY knowledgable of the material and expalains it so you can understand. An EXCELLENT teacher very enthused about the subjects. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Professor McNutt was one of my best professors during the Summer. Best 4 out of 5 tests. Final Exam is mandatory. Extra credit homework assignments. He is extremely knowledgable and is willing to stay after class to help out his students. He knows the material and references the book for extra clarity if needed. Best class! I would recommend!!

Professor is very respectful to everyone, wants you to learn. Best 4 of 5 tests are counted. HW is extra Credit, gave us extra credit one day, Labs are graded fair. Overall a great professor, wish i would have taken more classes with McNutt as he's got many degrees and knows what he is talking about

Had him for PHY2048 and 2049. The test problems are taken directly from his lecture examples. Allows you to have a note sheet during tests. Homework problems count as extra credit. If you take good notes, pay attention to his examples, and make a good note sheet you could get 100% on every test without learning anything. Don't believe the whiners.
