Study. Do the homework and focus on the problems he does in class. If you focus on those problems you will do fine. Labs are easy. Lab reports are easy.

As good as any physics class can get. Loves to teach and willing to go above and beyond for his students. Exams are not difficult if you do your work and you even have opportunities for extra credit. Pulls lot of examples from real world scenarios and current events. Very positive and thoughtful. Gives lots of feedback.

2053C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Best core science class I've had in years. Professor is very easy to follow, gives lots of examples, and is enthusiastic about the subject. He keeps the experience, strengths, and weaknesses of his class in mind and tailors the exams and quizzes accordingly. As long as you do your work, it'll pay off. Very receptive to questions and loves to teach.

PHY1020C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Apostil is the single worst professor Ive ever had. Do not take physics with this man. He is also straight up rude. Take physics anywhere except on the north campus!

PHY2053C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Many of the students griped about him but admitted they would take him again. Physics isn't easy, and there is no way for a legitimate Physics class to be easy. With that being said, Dr Apostol is as good as this subject gets.

Dr. Apostol is a really good instructor who is very passionate about physics. He does have an accent, but he is very understandable. You get what you put into the class. Study, do the homework & make a good effort, you will do well. He's available & always open to questions. This is basic physics, not rocket science and he understands that.

Do not take this professor he speaks a geek sqaud language. He is not clear and when he explains things he does not keep it simple he speaks quadratic physics in his romanian accent and does not realize none of the students are employed with NASA and dont understand him at all. look for another professor trust me.

PHY2053 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Apostol is a good professor. He has his PhD in Physics, so he knows what he is talking about. He is personable. He sticks by the syllabus, and so covers a lot of material. His tests aren't too hard, and he doesn't require you to turn in a lot of homework. His lab report expectations aren't bad. I would take him again for physics.
