His class was mediocre at best. The first day he rode into the room with a motorcycle and threw his helmet at a student from Uganda and cussed out the janitor. He wrote his number on the chalkboard with a Sharpie and exclaimed " I'll show you angular momentum".

Summer class so went fast. Must do homework to keep up. His online youtube videos are very helpful but only if you've attempted the homework or read the book first. Wants you to understand material rather than just get the right answer

He doesn't explain things well unless you ASK QUESTIONS. He will not go out of hi ay to make you understand the lab in class but he does post stuff online.

he is not a good teacher especially for a 101 course. he doesnt explain how to get the answer and half the time we arent even sure what is the correct answers. his test arent that bad if you do the study guide, but his final is over everything and he doesnt give a study guide for it.............i wouldnt take him again

Dr. Allain is pretty awesome. He makes you come to conclusions yourself which can be really frustrating at times, but he really helps you learn. His tests are really short, so study and you will be rewarded. Also, read his shirts because they are funny. He's like a real life Sheldon Cooper.

This guy is worthless. I had a full ride to Southeastern and lost it to this man. (2.8 GPA that semester) I studied every night for 5-7 hours and still could not make a grade above a D. His tests are insane and he doesn't teach the material needed to do well on the tests. If you plan on taking him, either a) be a genius or b) take someone else.

He is conceptual rather computational,and he loves his inventions, demos, discoveries. Troy and him are the only one I recommend. Don't take others, they will teach u bible instead of physics.

It may be just me, but I did not learn this semester. I am teaching myself physics instead of being taught. Expects you to know what he's fixin to lecture on then goes on a tangent about star wars. Some like hime. I could not follow. Good luck.

HE IS THE BEST IN THE PHYSICS DEPARTMENT, other professors might be smart, but they don't know how to teach properly...they don't know how to give difficult concepts in easy way..they make easy concepts more and more difficult and difficult even more difficult because they know a lot but don't know how to give them to the student

Dr. Allain is a great teacher! A lot of students did not like how the course is set up, but the LEPS material is WAY easier than the PETS material. EVERY EDUCATION MAJOR SHOULD TAKE HIM FOR PHYS 142. He is the BEST option! Classes are long and hard to pay attention during, but he makes physics easy and interesting! Loved his class!

Dr. Allain is one of the 3 profs who helped me learn how to "think" physics & stop feeling like it was just impossible for me to get. He has a unique teaching style; some who want extreme structure may not like... but it works. You *will* learn with this guy.

Post all labs online. Quizes every day of class on the lab that you are about to complete. His instructions are vague and his test are nothing like the lab. Do not recomend to anyone.
