PHYS1117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Sadoff is really passionate about his work. He loves to take extra time out of his evenings multiple times a week to meet his students for dinner to talk about physics or anything else. He is sometimes a little picky about answers on exams and homework, but it's pass/fail, so the exam/homework grade doesn't matter a whole lot.

PHYS1203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A great man and teacher who tries to instill his passion for physics onto his students. Most of the class is based on his book with some stuff from his lectures as well. There is homework and a few exams that require time and effort, but the class isn't anything crazy. That doesn't mean this class is an easy A, though, because it's not.

PHYS1201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Warm hearted man with a whack sense of humor. Very passionate about his material & wanted us to know HIS book, word for word. Lectures were more often than the not, WORD FOR WORD of his txtbook. Test questions can be worded VERY poor. Interesting subject until he battered it to a pulp. I say go for it if you're ready to memorize a novel :)

phys1201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this class, but none of my classmates seemed to as much as I did. Just read his book, it's like a detailed outline of his lectures. Easy to do well if you read and interesting material. I had no experience in physics and it was very doable. Emphasis on relativity the last 3 weeks which is pretty interesting.

A silly professor past his prime. His arrogance and subjectivity show up where they hurt the most:on exams. Even the TA's don't agree with this man. Go take a fair and at least an interesting science class.

This is for Why is the Sky Blue? He is a really nice guy, and he really cares about making sure that the class is basic, for the people who are not really into science. Overall an interesting class

He is a really nice guy, but his class is really hard. This class should not be worth one credit. It takes too much of your time. Not a fair class overall. Really like the guy, though.

Genuinly tries to interact, which for a big class at Cornell is saying something. Liken him to a less comedic version George Carlin.

I'm the same person who wrote below comment. The prelim today was hard, because I didn't study hard. I think if you study hard this subject, you will get much out of it before taking more harder Quantum mechanics courses. However, you should know that it requires much effort despite of 1 credit. Besides, dinner with the professor everyweek is nice.
