Fulbright is pretty decent for a professor. However, his monotone voice may make you fall asleep. He always explains answers to iClicker questions and tries to crack a joke from time to time, which is a plus. His exams were slightly difficult, but if you understood the material to a decent extent, they weren't impossible at all. Overall, not bad.

Fulbright was a nice guy, that is for sure. His lectures were informative, but they were a bit of a bore, unfortunately. What's more is that that attendance was mandatory. Still, relative to LeClair's 1112 class, Fulbright's 2213 was pretty easy, though I'm probably saying that because I switched in after a stint in 2217.

I just want to point out that he is not a professor, he is a lecturer. He shouldn't even be on this site.

He is the worst prof I have had here. Really boring and useless lectures, but he unfortunately uses an iclicker. Tests are way harder than hw and are all based on theory- never had to do any calculations. This class was a huge struggle, but probably still better than auto-tutorial. Unless you need it for premed or a major, avoid it!

His lectures are helpful and very detailed in what was a pretty difficult class. He's a pretty funny guy, not because his jokes are that funny but because his jokes are just so nerdy. But if you can stay awake you'll get alot out of his lectures.

Very helpful, very nice, his jokes are hilarious (at times, but at least always entertaining)! Recommended.

Clear lectures. Very thorough. I heard that Phys 208 is harder than 207, but for me it was more enjoyable and interesting (and easier). Do the Problem Sets, as weekly quizzes in section are based on them. TA OH are extremely helpful. Final was supposed to be cumulative, but it was really just the last third.

Bert is the best! He is the most helpful professor I ever had. His lectures are extremely clear and he is always ready to answer my questions. Unlike many other professors, he makes nearly no conceptual errors. Bert rocks!!!

Professor is really nice and friendly, cares about students. However, his prelims were terribly difficult! They were long, not enough time to finish them. The lab course was okay. Difficult concepts if no prior experience, the problems really got tedious to do! I hated the weekly in section quizzes!

Professor Fulbright was my lab TA. At first, he seems sort of apathetic towards students based on first impression, but he is not like that at all! He is so genuinely caring about his students. His lectures may be a bit boring because he has the same tone throughout, but he tries to make it interesting with great demos and dorky jokes. He's great!!

Not a great professor. His lectures are dull and he makes no effort to engage the students. There are few examples of practical applications of the subject. The tests and homework demand quantitative answers, while in lecture, he NEVER works example problems. The students have little interest in learning what he teaches. Bad class.

I have to say that for a science professor, he's one of the best I've had. He's extremely clear. The course is very well organized. His demos are interesting. All around a good class. The only thing is that he's not too exciting, but he's the punniest man I've ever seen. No one can compare. But please laugh when he puns. It makes him smile.

Fulbright is one of the worst lecturers ever! His lectures are so dull and simplistic, his jokes are stupid, and he expects everyone to understand the physics at a higher level than he teaches (and he doesn't teach at that level because he probably can't). He copies the obvious equations from the textbook for his lectures.

professor fulbright is someone who really cares about his students and explains the concepts very well. his lectures might not be fun, but was helpful and well-organized. aboveall, there's none like him when it comes to being a nice, accessible professor. i'd be honored to take another class of his.

Very nice guy, but I sometimes wonder whether he understands the material. He does not seem to be able to tie all the concepts together. It will definitely help to seek help from other assistant professors in the course in addition to Dr. Fulbright.

Bert is a nice guy, but not a good lecturer. He bored everyone in Physics 208. It is hard to stay awake in that class. The homework assignments are tough and the lectures usually don't help you in solving the homework problems...try reading the book for help.

This is pretty much the nicest prof you'll find who is also willing to help you. He knows his stuff and is always available to help if needed.

Of all of my professors at Cornell, Fulbright stands out above the rest. He is willing to help and will bend over backwards to make sure that you do your absolute best. No matter the circumstances, he will help you do your absolute best
