132- Physics 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I don't get why he gets so much hate... His tests are all multiple choice and based 100% off of the notes. I didn't even read the book, just memorized his notes. Tests are open note as well. Lecture is super interesting as well cause he talks about random awesome shiz. I'm doing bad in Physics 2 with a diff professor, but Physics I was easy.

PHYS162 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Redmount is one of those people that talks overly fast and extra loud in order to assert the fact that he thinks he is smarter than everyone else. The tests and lecture have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the lecture. There is essentially no point in going to class. The book we use is also written by him so there is no way to learn on your own.

phys131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is waste of tuition you pay not to mention precious morning hours. Plz consider taking physics elsewhere esp. if you are premed/pre-dent. He despises premed and pre-dents and gets kick out of making life miserable for them.

PHYS 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

"Dr. Redmount is too intelligent to teach intro physics" is probably one of the most common things that students say. I disagree. Part of being truly intelligent is possessing the ability to communicate your ideas to others. To do this, you must understand your audience and adapt to their needs. Dr. Redmount cannot do this and thus is ineffective.

PHYS131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Teaches like a philosophy of science class, hw like a normal physics class and tests like its a engineering physics class. HW lectures and tests are all unrelated. Goes out of his way to not be helpful. Is demeaning to his students and is just kind of an ass. He is smart though, so there is that.

PHYS131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Redmount is the worst professor I have ever had. I'm an A/B student who never skipped a class and I worked 10+ hours a week to scrape by with a C in his class. Take physics at UMSL over the summer. DO NOT TAKE REDMOUNT.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. His lectures, the book, and his exams all focus on something different. If you decide to take Redmount, good luck.

PHYS133 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Redmount is an absolutely brilliant professor, and anyone who gets to have him for Physics knows that. He has a wealth of knowledge that extends way beyond many professors, and has interesting lecture. ATTEND LECTURE, take GOOD notes, you will do FINE in this class. I don't have sympathy for people who don't go to class then complain

PHYS163 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Do not take this course unless you are going to be an engineer. He is very intelligent and interesting, but the pre-req is calc I and he uses calc III material. To all chem/biochem/premed students: take regular physics because there is no reason to take engineering unless you want to risk your GPA.
