This guy still uses slide rules and they have him teaching a computer class? He barely knows what a computer is.

Very easy class - do the work and get an A. It is said he is retiring this year.

Engineering 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

VERY easy class. Graded assignments are a breeze. However, he didn't know the material that well. If you do happen to get confused then it would be better to ask another student who understands the stuff. Also, make sure you get a seat in the back so you can pull up AIM whenever you get bored :)

Probably my worst teacher this year. He doesn't know enough to teach engineering. He is very unclear about his work and expects things handed in that you didn't even know were due. Thank God he is retiring this year!

I advice that no one take this course if they do not have to. The professor acts as if it is a waste of time to help anyone out, and he assigns a ton of home work. If it is not mandatory, do not take the class.

Easy class if you have some programming knowledge, lots of homework but takes very little time. tests are pretty easy, and class does have its ups, especially the stories.

Humor is dry but very funny, especially about his old air force days in the 50s or his programming days with the Fortrans. Expects quite a bit for a Freshman 2nd semester class though. Will give you the help you need. Take him if you can.
