A knowledgeable guy but usually try to make you feel stupid. That makes us dare not to ask any further question. He doesn't try to be helpful and care about if we are still confusing. I just end up studying by myself most of the time.

Not helpful at all, didn't ever stick to his own word. Tested on irrelevant subject matter and lectures were a waste of time. Told many stories that is all.

Class is confusing and he doesn't do much to help. In fact he confuses you even more.

George Kapp is honestly the best engineering professor I have ever taken. Sure, it was a very difficult class and he is a strict grader but you should expect that from an engineering class.

This teacher is absolutely terrible. He copies the book onto the board, so going to class is worthless. Do not take him.

Useless as a professor. Completely unprepared for class and when he doesn't know something, he skips over it. he stares at the PP slides and reads them to us for 2 hours. Not a good class.

Stay away. He tells a lot of jokes while the students fall asleep. I am doing OK in his class but it is a waste of time.

Stay away.. Take Physics somewhere else if he is your only choice! All he does is to tell stories.

Has some funny stories, but moves fast and switches between slides before you can copy them. bring a HD video camera so you can use the lectures as tutorials when you get stuck on the homework or study for tests. Beware: tries to scare you with tests. Picks the HARDEST problems he can find. -- draw the pics, leave nothing blank, and you'll be ok.

I'll never take another WCC physics class without him. If you're going to be an engineer, you need him. He's tells you explicitly that you need to actually understand the stuff (not just memorize). This guys legit.

His class is not easy, you have to work hard. If you are actually there to learn the material you've got to take him. He is a brilliant guy and really knows his stuff. He tells you exactly what it's like in the real work. Hes hilarious plus he loves beer, guns, and cars!

I've never have had a teacher like him. He's the old engineering type, he's stern and strait to the point during lecture. Ask good questions after class and he'll stay and help you. Don't skip, he will notice and do something important when you're gone. If you are going into engineering he's your teacher, he's real and doesn't bullsh|t.

His class is a life experience. I am amazed by his knowledge. his notes are extremely valuable, and he is a great, great person as well. I loved him and loved physics even thogh i ended up with worst grade ever. But saying the truth, it was my fault by not managing my time well.

I had professor Kapp for physics 211. He shares a lot of stories that won't prepare you AT ALL for his exams and does a poor job at explaining concepts. Read his notes instead of the book.He is undeniably generous with points when grading though.

Great, great, great teacher. Very funny, definately talks as if only engineers are in his class, DO THE HOMEWORK and go to class and you should be fine!

YOU HAVE TO GO TO CLASS! I hardly put any time into this class outside of lecture, never did homework, and pulled off a B-. He gives better partial credit than any professor I've ever had 6 out of 10 points just for trying the problems. An A would be easy in this class as long as you go, do the homework, and truly understand HOW to do the problems.

Very knowledgeable. He uses life experiences and tell USEFUL stories. It is very important to attend classes... GO TO CLASS!!!! Pay attention, take notes (study them)and do the homework. Do this and you should have no problem passing the course. If you want an A, do extra problems in the book and you will get there. GO TO CLASS!!! GO TO CLASS!!!

George Kapp is not in class to hold your hand, he is there to push you down the hill on your bike. He is very bright, and insightful and INCITING (no spelling error). His goal is to get YOU to think, and he works every angle he can find. Many people are turned off by his style, but I still recall things he said 15 years later. One of the best.

Kapp is the real deal in concerns to the physics of the real world. He is a hard professor and his teachings are sometimes a little complicated to understand but he WILL teach! and you will learn and you will get good life lessons!!! Nugh Said!
