Dr. Degoede will go out of his way to help his students! A bit foggy getting information out but uses demonstrations to help. All questions on tests are from multiple choice quizzes done online beforehand. Interesting material!

His class was close to impossible. I didn't understand anything. I felt like he jumped around a lot and rushed through the material. I didn't really have a good grasp on the material even though I had taken AP calculus BC and honors physics in high school. He wasn't helpful because he just wasn't clear & didn't make sense. I wouldn't recommend him.

He's a wonderful guy, if you're planning on taking any physics courses try to take it with him. He goes way out of his way to help his students. Yes he will challenge you but you will actually learn the material from him

I have not taken any class from him in my 4 years in etown and being in the same dept. But this guy seems lost all the time. I am not sure how he ended up being the dept.Chair.

Professor DeGoede is an extremely nice guy, who is always willing to help you. However, the course material is difficult. Please do not let anyone fool you by telling you that this course will lead you to an "easy a."

Not the easiest material to understand, but he does everything he possibly can to help you understand it. He grades extremely easily so if you do the work you will be fine for the class. No test only short quizes with free points built in. He makes the classes interesting by using demonstrations all throughout the class.

Good professor. He should start teaching physics ans engineering major instead of How things work, especially considering he's now the chair of the dept

Physics for Flunkies. Dr. DeGoede explained everything with fun Bill Nye-esq demos. He's a science guy but his sense of humor is still good even though he didnt get all of my jokes

Clearly one of the best professors at Etown. His more advanced classes are quite difficult, but he makes up for it with his flexibility and his willingness to help. If you have to take physics, sign up with him.

He's a really nice guy. Lots of demos in class. Makes a boring subject tons of fun. The way he presents physics (which I usually hate) is very intresting and exciting. And he's pretty hot to top it all off.
