"There for you" "Amazing lectures" "Inspirational"

Dr. Farooqi is great instructor. The class is clear, fair, and interesting. The class is not a pushover. To do well, make sure you attend all the lectures and do the homework. Don't skip them! He posts his lectures in ppt the night before class on blackboard. If you make up early (7 am), you can take a brief look at it before class. Great guy!

1030Q Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Hard to understand, not good at explaining things. While studying for my exam I found material online that he had clearly cut and pasted to his slides without even citing them. Terrible at teaching.

PHYS 1030 Q Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

For a Q course, the math is pretty easy, especially is you've taken your basic high school algebra. However, the concepts he discusses can be very confusing. His homework is worded so awkwardly to the point where you aren't sure what he's asking you to do. He'll help you if you're stuck, but he can be hard to understand. Also, it's a real snoozer.

PHYS1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

very easy class, if you use everything he gives you. You have you review the class notes which he posts online, along with reviewing the quiz questions (which are easy) and doing out all the practice problems he gives you, you will be in great shape.

PHYS1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a terrible professor. Students are constantly correcting him. You can't understand what he says and to make it worse his hand writing is barely legible. Not helpful at all. Get an easy TA and you're more likely to do better. If you can take it with Hamilton then definitely do that instead.

Pretty easy, he does clicker questions as a form of attendance and it counts towards your grade. Quizzes are easy if you read the chapter and he posts notes online. He is actually helpful in class but sometimes hard to understand. Read the book and read the notes and you will be fine.

PHYS1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not too difficult. Don't go to class, it's completely unnecessary, he posts everything online which is extremely helpful. Online Quiz every week but really easy if you read the chapter. For exams just read the chapters and he takes questions directly from the online quizzes and puts them on the exams! Never went to class and got a B+
