Dr. Onaivi teaches in lecture halls so there isn't one on one help with him. You'll have to go to the SEC for help. He tells you half of the test questions before the test. A lot of the other test questions can be found at the end of the chapters in the book. He hates cell phones, and is also picky about other classroom etiquette.

Great professor. Don't get too friendly though. He gives you a practice exam which literally has 50% of the questions on the actual exam. Study the guide and the practice problems in the text book. He wishes for his students to do well so take advantage of the extra credit opportunities. I studied, went to tutoring, and earned an A.

Respect, respect, respect. You do that and you should do fine. Very hard to read him.He gives you every opportunity to succeed,but everyone was scared of him. Do the work,read his PPTs, and do the extra credit and you should be ok.

Required work for this class is minimal (only 3 exams). His lectures are fast moving and a little hard to follow, so it is important to read prior to class. The study guide he provides before the exam contains exact questions from the exam, so memorize it! Also, attend tutoring at the Science Enrichment Center to receive extra credit points.

Dr. Onaivi is a good guy. He wants his students to do well and is willing to help them. He gives out great review sheets for the test, which have questions that are usually on the test. Go to the extra credit he offers and you'll do fine! Definitely try to take him for both lab & lecture. I got an A, it's really not that hard if you try.
