"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader"

Grading scale is vague at best. An 'assessment' every week, and you get a 'grade' from 0-4. Difficult to impossible to get a 4 on an assessment, as he will nitpick anything out of your answers to dock you points. You can make 'video reassessments' and email them to him for credit, but don't expect a good score. Too vague and grades too hard.

PHYS 221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

If I have a time machine, I would go back in time and un-enroll from his class. He is "Chinese Sheldon Cooper" knows nothing at all and can't explain at all.

Phys 191 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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

PhySc101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.
