PHYS 2010 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Pop quiz master" "Get ready to read" "Lectures are long"

I learn absolutely nothing from his lectures. He throws information at you and never teach you how to solve various problems. I never feel so unprepared in all of my science classes. If you are a pre-health major and actually need to learn the information, don't take him. He's nice enough to help you if you come to his office.

2010 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Learned close to nothing substantial from him. His teaching style is just throwing information at you, but never actually teaches you how to approach problems. Tests often contain material that he never went over in class. He gives you worthless packets, practice problems, and tons of hw q's so you never know where he's going to pull test q's from.

"Would take again" "There for you" "Get ready to read"

So let me just say this, you should NOT take this class if you are in pre med because you won't learn as much as you should to prepare for med school. It's like taking college physics as an engineer- you shouldn't and if you do, you need to reevaluate your major. Although we are behind in lectures, he does take a long time explaining each topic.

Phys 2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I absolutly love his class. I had no interest in physics before taking this class, now Physics is not scary at all. Love his personality. He is nice, helpful and understanding person, you can talk to him any time and he'll be there to listen. Take his class for physics 1 & 2

PHYS002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had him for physics 2. He doesn't teach, he'd rather bs with the class and half the time he lets the class out an hour early. You can get an A if you teach yourself and pay attention to his hints for the tests. He gives a lot of extra credit points on the homework and an easy paper at the end of the semester.

Phys001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Andrew is a nice guy but this however does not make up for the horrible teacher he is! He lets you use cheat sheets for the tests and unless you copy the problems and the solutions form all his test examples you will not pass. Horrible way to learn, but that's how you can get the easy A. He will rob you of a solid foundation.

Physi2331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is really nice and you will probably get an A. But if you want to learn the material take someone else. You will have to teach yourself in his course. He kind of rambles on about things that don't make sense.

PHYS2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Andrew was a blessing as a lab instructor after having to drop the atrocious lecture. He was super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Do the work and you will be successful. I wish I could take all of my physics class with him.

Good lab instructor and I have heard good things as a lecture teacher. Smart guy and friendly. Just do the work, which isn't that much.
